COVID Update: Cleaning, Picking Nose, Salon Raids

Lots of fun little COVID things to go over. Did you know that cleaning is not really necessary?

Still Disinfecting Surfaces? It Might Not Be Worth It

At the start of the pandemic, stores quickly sold out of disinfectant sprays and wipes. People were advised to wipe down their packages and the cans they bought at the grocery store.

But scientists have learned a lot this year about the coronavirus and how it’s transmitted, and it turns out all that scrubbing and disinfecting might not be necessary.

If a person infected with the coronavirus sneezes, coughs or talks loudly, droplets containing particles of the virus can travel through the air and eventually land on nearby surfaces. But the risk of getting infected from touching a surface contaminated by the virus is low, says Emanuel Goldman, a microbiologist at Rutgers University.

“In hospitals, surfaces have been tested near COVID-19 patients, and no infectious virus can be identified,” Goldman says.

In all fairness, early on things were very much up in the air, no one knew much. But, here we are closing in on a year later and now we’re finding this out? Will this be broadcast out beyond this lonely NPR article? Or will they look to keep us in fear?

Why picking your nose isn’t just gross — it’s dangerous in the time of coronavirus

…Jokes aside, nose picking is deadly serious.

Not only are people spreading their own bacteria and viruses onto everything they touch after a bout of digging for gold — but you also “transfer germs from your fingertips into the nose, which is the exact opposite of what you want,” said infectious disease specialist Dr. Paul Pottinger, a professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.

That means that you can spread coronavirus to others from your nose-picking session, and you are also more likely to bring that virus, along with others like influenza or rhinovirus (the common cold), directly into your body.

One has to wonder how CNN green-lit an article on picking your nose, even with the Bat Soup Virus angle

VIDEO – Agents Cite CA Salon for Defying Shutdown Order: ‘They Treated It Like a Drug Raid’

A salon owner and several stylists in Stockton, California, were cited Wednesday for keeping their doors open despite the state’s regional stay at home orders.

“Agents with the Department of Consumer Affairs visited Pomp Salon in Lincoln Village, where the owner and staff have been outspoken about their desire to stay open,” KCRA reported.

Video footage of the incident shows one person asking an agent, “Are you gonna pay our bills? Would you like to pay my mortgage?”

Stylist Denise Levitt said she believes it should be up to clients to decide whether they want to visit the business or not, adding, “I was screaming because I said, ‘the governor does not follow his orders, so why should we?’”

Masks are worn at all times inside the salon, according to owner Dino Ballin, who said he is baffled as to why the personal care industry is being targeted.

“They burst into our salon and they treated it like a drug raid,” Ballin’s wife, Vicki Kirk, told Fox 40.

If you hit the links and check the video, these agents of the Dept of Consumer Affairs were actually wearing “police” placards on the back of their flack jackets. Really. I don’t see any firearms in the video, but, it is crazy that these agents would be considered police. Welcome to California?

Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci, who’s all over the place on his herd immunity claims, says that the worst is yet to come, just like China Joe. It’s like they want to keep this going as long as possible to keep as much power in the hands of government, getting you more and more used to it.

    Remember so long ago just before Mr Biden won the election that Trump and his faithful cultists were saying the the Covid pandemic would magically disappear on Nov 4? Remember those good old days?

    Now you’re

    MOVING THE GOALPOSTS

    claiming they’ll keep the pandemic going until the right gets used to be controlled!!

    If half a million dead Americans won’t convince the tRumpKult, no amount of typing will.

    Wear a mask and you’re less likely to pick your nose or touch your nose. Wash your hands often and you’ll wash germs right off! Stay home as much as possible so you don’t touch the surfaces that nose pickers do! If you do have to touch oft handled common surfaces (grocery cart handles, gas pumps, girlfriend’s bra clasp) use a hand sanitizer. Don’t talk to strangers in person. Avoid crowds, e.g., political rallies, protests, sporting events, concerts, buffets, cafeterias, movie theaters, White House celebrations. Get vaccinated when it’s available for you.

    Nothing is fool-proof but these actions and inactions will reduce your risk of dying from Covid.

    So, is flicking a booger at someone now considered assault with a deadly weapon?
