COVID-19: The ONE PLACE you’re more likely to get sick
It doesn’t seem to make sense on ANY level.
Yet there it is… in black and white.
Studies keep showing where people are MOST LIKELY to catch the coronavirus infection, and it’s not on the beach or in the park.
It’s not in a supermarket.
It’s not in any of the places you’re likely thinking of.
It’s your own house?!
Yes, my friend, the whole stay-at-home strategy seems to have possibly backfired for one very critical segment of the population… but there’s a way to make sure you’re NOT one of them.
How you could get SICK at HOME
Now, before I go any further, let me do something the media refuses to do and dial back the fear.
If you’re NOT sick… if NO ONE in your home is infected… then you WON’T get sick in your own home.
The virus isn’t going to door-to-door, it’s not slipping in through windows and air ducts and it’s probably not even arriving in your Amazon deliveries.
The problems begin when someone breaks the bubble.
If someone in your home is still working or still engaging in day-to-day life, then you could be at risk.
And here’s the thing: You could face that risk even if they don’t LOOK sick and even if they NEVER BECOME truly ill!
That’s because it’s possible to catch, carry and spread the virus with few symptoms or in some cases even with none at all. The World Health Organization estimates that up to 40 percent of all cases were spread by people who didn’t have symptoms at the time.
Infectious disease expert Erin Bromage analyzed the evidence for her personal blog and found the number one source of the infection’s spread is in people’s own homes.
This gels with a study out of Wuhan, early in the outbreak, which found 85 percent of cases started at home.
Logically, it makes more sense than you might think.
A quick encounter on a park trail is unlikely to spread the virus even if you pass someone who has it – and if you DO catch any particles, it likely won’t be enough to infect you.
But at home, in an enclosed space, breathing the same air as someone who has the virus allows it to accumulate in your respiratory tract until there’s enough to cause infection.
That’s also why it spreads so quickly through care facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes; the patients and workers are literally a captive audience for the virus.
It’s also why indoor spaces where you sit for an extended period – like a bar or restaurant, or a train, plane or bus – are also still more dangerous right now.
So as crazy as it sounds, another new report finds you may not just want to wear a mask when you go out.
You want to wear one at home, too.
Again, NOT if you’re alone or part of a household where everyone is keeping in and avoiding contact.
But if someone is going out a lot – someone is working – then wearing a mask at home might not be the most comfortable thing in the world… but it just might be the safest.
