Dr. Oz Says Doing This One Thing Is Basically a DIY Vaccine ‘It’s That Powerful’, Reducing Risk by 50
With all the mass hysteria over the spread of the coronavirus, people everywhere are doing what they can to minimize the risk of catching and transmitting the virus.
Most everyone in the country is reducing the amount of time out of the house they have to do. They’re keeping a safe distance from people when they do go out.
And until they actually get a vaccine developed, people are just going to have to continue doing what they’re already doing and ride this out for a little while. They are diligently working toward getting a vaccine made that will help combat the spread of this virus.
The first testing of a vaccine was started this past Monday and while it may not get completed in time, it will be ready for next time if this were to ever happen again.
Dr. Mehmet Oz said something very interesting and very important last week in regard to the coronavirus.
Dr. Oz said doing one thing can reduce your chances of getting the virus by 50%. That one thing is simply washing your hands.
Fox News reported,
While a vaccine to combat the spread of the coronavirus remains months away from approval, taking the proper precautions at home can reduce virus transmission by nearly 50 percent, according to Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Joining “Fox & Friends Sunday,” Oz answered many of the questions surrounding the novel outbreak, emphasizing the importance of handwashing and social distancing after reports on Sunday estimated the number of infected cases in the U.S. surged to nearly 3,000 nationwide – up from the less than 500 cases recorded in the country at the start of the week.
“Washing your hands alone is probably a 50 percent reduction in virus transmission,” Oz said. “It’s a DIY vaccine … it’s that powerful … that’s the best way to stay out of it … but,” he emphasized, “the most important thing is social distancing.”
I hope that after this coronavirus mess passes, that people remain to be this diligent in their hygiene and that they continue washing their hands and keeping them off of their face as they should.
