Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
Latest Press Release from Florida Department of Health, in italics, below:
The Florida Department of Health (Department) has announced there are two presumptive positive cases of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Florida. Both individuals remain in isolation at this time. Despite these cases in Florida, the overall immediate threat to the public remains low.
As the first death due to COVID-19 occurred in state of Washington, there are now 173 (later adjusted to 184) people under observation in Florida, and now 2 tested positive for COVID-19. CDC (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention) now permits individual states to run their own test for this virus, COVID-19. The goal is to enable all fifty states and local health departments to be able to run the test with testing kits by next week. If done locally, Floridians being tested would receive their test results within 1-2 days rather than 3-5 days if tests need to be sent to CDC.
All Floridians showing symptoms (fever, fatigue, sneezing, running nose, sore throat, dry cough, shortness of breath, decreased kidney function, diarrhea, decreased white blood cells) are directed not to go to urgent care or their doctors, but contact Florida Department of Health (850-245-4444 or 850-245-4401) directly for instructions. All Floridians who have recently traveled to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, or Iran are asked to self-quarantine for 2 weeks and contact Florida Department of Health for instruction. On Monday, March 2, 2020, around noon, Gov. DeSantis said Florida health officials are monitoring 184 potential coronavirus cases, ‘public risk is still low.’ in the video “Gov. Ron DeSantis gives update on two Florida COVID-19 patients“, below:
There are now two Floridians tested positive for COVID-19. There are currently no anti-viral medication, so it is important to manage symptoms (in the diagram above: sneeze, sore throat, dry cough, fever, running nose, shortness of breath, fever fatigue, decreased kidney function, diarrhea, decrease white blood cell) and be well rested, be well nourished, drink plenty of hot water, exercise, avoid touching t-zone (around eyes, nose, mouth region), washing hands frequently, avoid social contacts and stay home and isolated if you are sick.
