I didn't mention in yesterday's post that among the things we can, and should do, is practice social distancing and all the guidelines suggested by various levels of government officials, and in some cases, get Covid-19 testing and/or implement self-quarantine. That's what I am doing. If you've read my previous posts about the coronavirus crisis, you'll know why. I was in Europe - Romania, to be exact - speaking at Science and Spirituality Conferences, when this crisis broke. Then, it is very likely that I was exposed to the coronavirus on on a 12-hour flight from Istanbul Turkey to Chicago on March 12, 2020. The flight was packed with people from Eastern Europe and the Middle East trying to get to the US before travel bans were imposed. Many of them were coughing and sneezing, obviouly exhibiting typical viral respiratory infection symptoms.
I expected the entire flight to be quarantined when we landed in Chicago, but it wasn't. I believe it should have been. Fortunately, I was enroute to a remote location in the Southern Missouri Ozarks via St Louis, so, except for possible contacts with a few people on the last leg of my return trip, and in the St Louis Airport (it was a late-night arrival) I was able to go into self-imposed quarentine within a day. During the next 14 days, I had no flu-like symptoms at all. Even though I am in the most vulnerable age group, I have a strong immune system and no underlying disease. I believe this is because I have a healthy life style, take therapeutic-grade essential oils and food supplements, and never take pharmaseutical drugs. I am, however, continuing my self-imposed quarantine because I may well be what they are calling an asymptomatic carrier of the virus. Meanwhile, I continue to pray for those infected and affected by this man-made crisis.
