Undoubtedly coronavirus is the thing on everyone’s minds right now.

In France full quarantine is imminent as all bars, restaurants, public spaces, schools and non-essential shops are now closed, events across the country are cancelled and people are being asked to stay home. 

It is indeed scary, scary times but we can take action.   There is ALWAYS a choice! 

Instead of waiting for the Government to decide when (not if) we should self-isolate, voluntarily quarantine yourself now and return to freedom in 14 days*.

This advice (IMO) is urgent for anyone living in France, Spain or Germany and recommended for UK, Switzerland and the Nethelands or any country as cases surpass 1500 (est.2500 for the US).  

Please note, these ideas, whilst based on over 60hrs of research are my own.  There is no guarantee self-isolation for 14 days will have the affect I expect it to – but I guess we will see! 

Any action, is better than inaction. 

TAKE ACTION NOW

My course of action:

I am currently disinfecting my house using this DIY natural disinfectant.

And from this evening, anyone entering the house (which will only be its occupants) must first clean their hands with hand sanitizer (make your own with 3 ingredients).

I have enough food to last a month, and toilet paper for 2 weeks. There is no need to panic buy. The last thing we need is a toilet paper shortage!

My response may seem extreme, however, I want to get back to my life as quickly as possible and by quarantining myself I can monitor my health for 14 days, and if I show no symptoms, will know I’m not contaminated and can resume normal activities – with the addition of maintaining a 2m social distance from other people.

Hiking late April anyone? From April 25th I plan to be hiking in the UK. If you have completed a 14-day isolation period with no problems, you are welcome to join me for a day or 2 in the mountains. Safety guaranteed. Sign up here.

ECONOMY

Of course, the Government cares about its people……………but it must also balance this with the economy.

From the moment shops, bars, restaurants, schools, entertainment and public sports facilities close and events are canceled, the Government is literally shedding money.

Money to pay workers, small businesses, events organizers, ticket holders, airlines, tourism and transportation industries, and many more socio-economic requirements.

It is in their best interests to keep the economy in motion as long as possible, if not, where will the public funds that maintain our daily lives come from in the near future?

On Friday, the European Commission announced the release of €37bn in funds to reduce the socio-economic impact within the EU of the COVID-19 outbreak, starting immediately with Italy.

OR HUMAN HEALTH

Their list includes relief for both industry and individual but does little to support a healthcare system, that is already choking under a blanket of the sick, to now manage an epidemic.

This remains the responsibility of the individual Government.

France has one of the best healthcare systems in the world, but is it ready for a pandemic?

With masks, tests and vital protective equipment already required way beyond stock and supply, there is simply not enough to protect all healthcare workers, who are dealing, not only with a massive medical emergency but also facing stress, fear, anxiety, and sadness on a daily basis.

The healthcare sector will take the biggest hit, not just through infection and death but also physical and emotional exhaustion of our entire healthcare profession alongside the loss of a large proportion of those over 60. 60!

Can you say, hand on heart say that your Government is going to put the welfare of these demographics ahead of the economy?

CONTROL THE NARRATIVE

You have a choice right now to stop this virus, dead in its tracks and in doing so protect the lives of grandparents, parents, mum’s, dad’s sisters, brothers, sons, and daughters.

If not for them, then to get your own freedom back.

*FREEDOM IN 14 DAYS

Follow these step-by-step instructions to freedom in 14 days with self-isolation.

Self-isolation is defined as maintaining a minimum 1m distance from people in your house as much as possible and 2m in public. The bigger the distance, the better.

  1. Clean and disinfect your house.
  2. Self-isolate for 14 days and closely monitor your own health.
  3. Diarise any and all of the following symptoms: runny nose, dry cough, fever, shortness of breath or diarrhea.
  4. Take 3 big breaths outside first thing in the morning and make a note if your lungs feel more restricted than the day before.
  5. Eat a healthy diet, drink lots of water, exercise, and enjoy the sun.

After 2 weeks if you have not shown any symptoms, resume normal life activities (as far as Government restricted access allows) – with the addition of maintaining a 2m distance from another person.

I’m already on Day 2, feel free to follow my journey here.

DEALING WITH WORK

If your place of work has not yet spoken to you about a pandemic management plan, from Monday, advise them that you are self-isolating for 14 days as a matter of public health.

WHAT IF YOU FEEL SICK?

If you begin to have serious difficulty breathing, call your local ambulance service.

If you have any other symptoms,

  • Isolate yourself from all other people
  • Wash your hands after touching any surface or your face
  • Eat a healthy diet, ideally containing green vegetables
  • Drink plenty of fluids – 2l water per day
  • Rest, relax, breathe.

DETOX

Think of it as a 14-day detox for your body and life.

Get on top of all those little jobs you’ve been meaning to do for a while, or the big ones.

Take up a hobby or just enjoy time at home as a family.

Get lots of air, sunshine and exercise.

As much as possible maintain 1m between you and other members of your household and 2m in pubic.

Don’t rush to buy masks, toilet paper, pasta or anything else. There is plenty for everyone if we don’t panic buy. All you need is 2 weeks maximum. Supermarkets are to remain open.

Ignore the media! You have taken action for your life, it doesn’t matter what else is happening in the world.

The best place for information is your local government website or WHO.
