Roughly 40 persons in the USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.
The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus are older persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.
One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone will die from the virus. Based on what facts? That’s an overkill reaction.
What does make sense to do:
- regularly and frequently wipe down using disinfectant wipes those surfaces people frequently touch (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
- regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
- practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
- stay home when sick or think you are getting sick
The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy. One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes. For example, Clorox wipes are made by a CA company with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble. So — why not invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean? The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.
