One in Twenty Die (A Civil Society Public Service Announcement)



Think ‘one-in-twenty’ because this is why, women medical experts of The RINJ Foundation, and they are mothers too,  said since January, “wear an N95 mask”.

As the novel coronavirus disease continues to spread, the higher the numbers go, the more the numbers grow. This weekend the global pandemic hit ten million cases and within two days was another 200,000 cases higher for 232 countries/territories heading for the next additional million.

In a manner of speaking, this article is a public service piece that shares the news about two things: the ten million SARS-CoV-2 infections and the “One-in-Twenty” reality that the 10 million cases have taught the world. Read on, please.

“It’s an exponential algorithm. Now After hitting 10 million infections the numbers have begun to grow at a daily 9% or more and deaths will rise to colossal levels,” says Fred Harris, a computer scientist.

 

When will mankind say, “No More!”.

For every 20 new cases, one person will die. Most academics agree that the average death rate among reported confirmed cases is about 5%. But those case numbers are very low compared to the algorithm counts of the totals including minor and asymptomatic cases.

Frontliner experiences are instructive

Fighting the coronavirus in Venezuela, nurse Michele Francis who heads up three clinics and a small hospital in the Amazon Basin says it’s “like trying to hold back a breaking damn with one hand”.

“What the mainstream media is only just now picking up is that for each thirty to forty thousand cases per day, an average of 5% will begin to die in roughly 28 days. For every twenty new cases, one person will die.”

“That will change eventually,” she added. ” When the pandemic is over, the numbers may be exact but for now, it is likely true that the disease is roughly three times more deadly than influenza. That’s still only an educated guess. That’s all there can be for now.

RINJ: Fighting for the safety of women and children around the world. Wear a mask.

“People need to wear an N95 mask, like we do here in Taiwan,” says a nurse who spent the first quarter of the year in Wuhan.  Kathy Poon says that the people of Taiwan have maintained good health by protecting their respiratory systems with N95 masks.

Taiwan has been delivering masks to many countries as part of Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen’s global solidarity effort.

Mainland China and Russia also have been delivering enormous quantities of personal protective equipment as part of the global solidarity effort in cooperation with the World Health Organization.

“We have never wavered on this. COVID-19 is a respiratory system illness and each person must protect their respiratory system—their throat, nose and lungs. The SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-29 will not hang around there, it will infect cells in a person’s body that have the ACE2 receptor in the liver, kidneys, intestines, heart and lungs and then some more,” instructs nurse Poon who lectures wisely.

“Even a very young patient may recover from the first bout of the disease’s worst symptoms only to die weeks later in what is called a cytokine storm.”

No shame in wearing a protective mask. Remember #OneIn-Twenty die.

One senior told us that he loves wearing a mask. Because of the pandemic quarantine he has not been able to get to the dentist for an adjustment of his dentures. He says that with a mask on his face, he can comfortably go “without dentures and nobody’s the wiser.”

“We have argued and clashed with the World Health Organization and many male-run governments around the world on the topic of masks,” says Katie Alsop of The RINJ Foundation.

Almost all of the staff of FPMag are medical practitioners and the opinions on this topic were worth the straw poll.

Sharon Santiago says that “the consensus among everyone is that we’ll wear a mask an extra day or two if that means readers will have a good mask to protect their respiratory systems and never cross the threshold of the hospital with COVID-19.”

She offered this advice: “Wear the mask that protects your respiratory system. Learn how to do this and fit check the device before you leave home. Practice wearing the mask in a safe environment at home first.”

And, as often as possible, FPMag shares some good advice from sisters in Singapore on how to wear and fit-test an N-95 mask.

Wear a mask to avoid being the “One-In-Twenty”.

 Here is how to wear and fit-test  your N95 respirator mask, especially when you have been in high risk areas. Most commonly used for Influenza prevention, these masks are effective according to the CDC in helping to prevent the spread of Flu, swine flu and avian flu transmission from person to person.  N95 masks are designed to fit over the nose and mouth of the wearer, and properly fitted can provide excellent protection for you and from you. 

Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds in a good soap  before and after touching your mask. Using a hand sanitizer is an acceptable alternative if done correctly.

Hand Sanitizer Procedure

1. Apply enough sanitizer to completely cover both hands.
2. Rub hands together, palm to palm.
3. Rub back of each hand with palm of other hand.
4. Spread sanitizer over and under fingernails
5. Spread sanitizer between fingers
6. Keep rubbing hands together until they are dry. Do not dry
with a towel

“One-In-Twenty”

“The flu virus is carried from infected patient to non-infected person in droplets of their excretions from sneezing and coughing, much like COVID-19. Both are respiratory viruses and both have a high morbidity.”

“Expelled moisture particles from human respiratory systems are as much as 5 microns or larger in size.

“When an infected person wears an N95 respirator, the respirator can be effective as a barrier preventing infectious material from leaving the patient’s body, and when worn by healthy individuals in a crowded place, it prevents inhalation of other persons’ material.

“Wearing a mask is an excellent barrier against the user rubbing or touching their mouth or nose, which has a very high risk factor. But keep your hands off the front of the mask.

“An N95 mask can substantially reduce the risk of receiving or transmitting a disease,” notes one vendor of N95 masks.

Regardless of diseases, wear an N95 mask in cities where pollution is above an index of 12µg/m³. Sadly, that is most places on Earth.

The RINJ Foundation is urging people to wear an N95 mask in cities where pollution is above an index of “12µg/m³”. Which cities are those? “Most cities,” says Katie Alsop of the RINJ women’s civil society group.

Only 9 out of 62 regional capitals included in a recent study have an annual mean PM2.5 level within the WHO air quality guideline of 10µg/m³. See the report: world-air-quality-report-en.
