Dear Friends & Neighbors,

As the deaths surpassed 200 in China due to Wuhan Coronavirus, and the World Health Organization declaring international emergency, one cannot help but wonder how anxious and worried the people under lockdown in Wuhan must be right now. These people need more masks, more Coronavirus test kits, more healthcare providers, oxygen concentrators, food, water, medicine and supplies, etc. Here are some potential measures residents in Wuhan, China, or any one who wants to prevent the spread of coronavirus, may want to consider as being helpful while waiting for vaccine or cure for this strain of coronavirus:
- wearing mask whenever going out
- washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently, especially after going to bathroom or before preparing meals
- avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
- get some sunlight for sunlight is a great natural source of disinfectant
- avoiding social contacts, going out only when it is essential
- clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
- covering your mouth and nose with tissue when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands
- acquiring HEPA portable air filter units (to filter out bacteria, virus, fungus in the air) to be placed at home, at public areas
- acquiring oxygen concentrators to be used if/when infections affects lung or respiratory efficiency
- eating much garlic (with anti-viral property) and ginger (improving circulation) when cooking
- practicing tai-chi, qigong, and/or yoga (to help boost immune system and improve blood circulation)
- remaining calm (this would help to optimize one’s immune system)
- meditate (to help remaining calm)

According to yicai.com, a financial news site, hospitals in the Wuhan region renewed their pleas to the public for help to replenish their supplies (that is quickly disappearing). A city not far from Wuhan, Huanggang, a city of seven millions, has severe shortages such that some medical staff members were wearing raincoats and garbage bags as shoe covers to protect against the virus and infections.
On Thursday, January 30, 2020, the Chinese government agencies announced plans to issue subsidies of up to $43 per day to front-line medical workers and to reopen factories to boost production of medical supplies and protective gear.
For those of you/us outside of China who want to help, please refer to a list of hospitals in Wuhan that would benefit from medical supplies such as masks, protective suits, medical supplies, etc. by clicking HERE.
