CORONAVIRUS Fa Tru Message from the @GullahGeechee Nation

CORONAVIRUS Fa Tru Message from the @GullahGeechee Nation

Fact not Fiction

Accuracy not Assumption

Take time

Rest

Understand

1) COVID-19 is a VIRUS.

virus

[ˈvīrəs]

NOUN

virus (noun) · viruses (plural noun) · computer virus (noun) · computer viruses (plural noun)

  • an infective agent that typically consists of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat, is too small to be seen by light microscopy, and is able to multiply only within the living cells of a host.
    “a virus infection”
    • an infection or disease caused by a virus.
      “I’ve had a virus”
    • a harmful or corrupting influence.
      “the virus of cruelty that is latent in all human beings”


A virus is also defined as “a harmful or corrupting influence.”  Please DO NOT allow the media to get you to believe that you need not have connections to other people.  That is not a healthy way to live and it would be harmful.  There is a corrupting influence that can cause xenophobia if you isolate yourself and listen to constant inconsistent reporting online and on TV.  So, unplug and heal for most of the day.  You need only watch one or two MEDICAL broadcasts per day to know what is the latest update on the BEST PRACTICES regarding preventative and healing measures regarding this or any other virus.

2) Medical updates regarding the cornavirus and where testing can be done can be obtained by contacting the Medical University of South Carolina’s Online Virtual Care Doctors at https://campaigns.muschealth.org/virtual-care/index.html.

4) The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) in each state is providing health information via websites and direct emails to those that are on their contact lists.  

The most recent information from South Carolina DHEC is:

On March 13, 2020, the President issued a Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency concerning the Novel Coronavirus disease outbreak, and Governor McMaster declared a state of emergency in South Carolina. Consequently, many SC water service providers are suspending all water service shut off for any reason (except for shut offs to make utility repairs). Please contact us if you or someone you know has had their water shut off.

For the latest information on COVID-19 from DHEC, please see https://scdhec.gov/infectious-diseases/viruses/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19 “

6) Take this time to build up your immune system by eating healthy natural foods and not processed foods and by getting in some exercise by doing outdoor work and enjoying the family with some outdoor games, walks, running, and fun.   Laughter and joy are healing.
