Nevada Health authorities report that over the past 7 days, Nevada has seen a nearly two fold increase in the number of Nevadans coming down with the Corona Virus….rising from 986 cases to 1,836 cases. Again, that’s over the past week.
The number of deaths also spiked higher this past week rising from 15 a week ago up to 46 as of Saturday. So the rate of infection as well as deaths are rising much more rapidly that just two weeks ago.
To avoid contracting the virus stay indoors, constantly sani-wash your homes’ door knobs, refrigerator and sliding door handles as well as faucets, door knobs, toilet handles, window latches, etc.
And…wash your hands regularly through out the day and evening.
And now medical officials in Washington DC are encouraging ALL AMERICANS TO WEAR SOME KIND OF FACE MASK. Homemade masks generally work. They’re not as efficient as regular medical masks but then again those who wear them outside are not in severely contaminated areas such as a hospital room.
