CORONAVIRUS STAY AT HOME FOR US

STAY AT HOME FOR US WE ARE AT THE HOSPITAL WORKING:

We are at the hospital Intensive Care Unit, looking after Coronavirus patients.  We have a duty of care at hands right now, and we understand it is not easy to make a change of a lifestyle overnight.  Still, it is achievable to stay healthy and alive and not infected or spreading the virus further, meaning more work for us if it continues to spread.  We are caring for and treating Coronavirus patients face-face, and it is real.

EVERYONE HAVE A DUTY OF CARE AND RESPONSIBILITY

The government knows everyone needs to eat and meet social amenities and so they are on it.  Above all else, avoid droplets at all cost.  Cover your food and drinks wherever you may be as nobody knows when anyone will sneeze or cough, cook your food in your kitchen and take responsibility.  Wash your hands regularly after touching anything unclean.  Be careful touching the door handles, if sharing a flat or a home.  Whatever you consider vulnerable.  Do not touch your eyes, face, mouth. Avoid eating anything without first wash your hands.  Moisturise your hands after washing your hands, because hands get dry quickly.

Moreover, eat well, and exercise in your flat or gardens and that will be healthy.  The Coronavirus phase will pass in due course.  We are busy and have put this piece of health promotion and education together for everyone, during interval breaks.

KEEP YOUR PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING INTACT

Don’t worry about anything, and we are on it for everyone.  Please, pray for Nurses and Doctors at this time.  Some of us will get infected and who knows how many will survive.  Some of us have young children, husbands, wives, friends and parents too.  However, this is our vacation rather a job, and we have our duty of care under control for everyone.  After all, a soldier goes to war, not knowing what the future holds, yet they represent and protect us.  It is time for genuine dedication, compassion, empathy and commitment.  Above all else, we believe that we can achieve victory if you, the government and healthcare professionals, work together.

OUR VOCATION AND HIPPOCRATIC OATH

This Coronavirus is Doctors and Nurses callings, and we are happy to sacrifice everything within our power to keep everyone safe and alive. Please help us to stay at home.  Thank you.
 
If you suspect high temperature, muscular ache, dry cough, fever, shortness of breath call your Doctor who will advise you further on the next step or ring NHS direct on 111.  There is a link attached to this article.  Please do not go to your doctor or GP Surgery.  If you think that you may have come in contact with an infected person or need self-isolation, please follow the NHS guidance.  We love the world, and we love you.  We appreciate it is not easy to stay at home and not knowing when it will end, and it is a new lifestyle for everyone, we hope by God’s willing, our Scientists will find answers and solutions to Coronavirus.  Be brave and stay safe for us.  THANK YOU!
TOGETHER WE DEFEAT CORONAVIRUS HUMANITAS FELICITAS

Coronavirus is now a pandemic according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), and the virus can cause illness from a common cold to more severe diseases such as respiratory syndrome.  It is said to transmit between person to person or among people.  At present, it is difficult to find the actual source of the Pandemic, but researchers are on it.  Today, WHO has officially declared Coronavirus as a PANDEMIC.

High Temperature

Breathing difficulty (Shortness of breath)

However, when having these symptoms, it does not necessarily mean the virus is present. It is difficult to know what type of flu it is until tested.  The primary symptoms are not different from a common cold or flu.  Still, it can divert to the more severe illness and in need of hospitalisation, causing pneumonia, difficulty in breathing and escalating to more severe disease.  However, it is best to follow the Coronavirus Test rule laid down by your Federal Ministry of Health, and the World Health at large.  Report any symptoms to your healthcare provider as soon as possible and abstain from gatherings as much possible.  Travel if deemed necessary and check the status of Coronavirus in the country or cities that you are going and the land of abode, before travelling.

WHAT TO DO TO AVOID CATCHING THE SPREAD 

It is vital to wash hands with soap and water efficiently after every activity.  Cover mouth and nose whenever you cough or sneeze, use tissues or handkerchief and throw them in the bin straight away, remember to wash your hands.  Please, do not touch your nose, eyes, mouth or food if your hands are not clean.  It is time to take hand washing very seriously, of which here at SaintAlexandra, we have advocated the need for handwashing several times. Check our handwashing articles.

Try to avoid close contact with gatherings and follow healthcare safety measures of the country that you live.  Take plenty of fruits, water, and ensure your vitamin C level is adequate.  Eat natural food and boost your electrolytes and energy, keep safe.

Everyone should take responsibility for their health and adhere to Public Health advice at all time.  May solution be sort soon as Pandemic is terrible news to humans.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE KEEP SAFE

THE EFFECT OF MUSIC ON HEALTH

MUSIC WORLD-CLASS NATURAL PHYSICIAN:

The effects of music on health is indescribable.  There are different types of music, and all have a disparate impact on our feelings and health.  How we feel affects our mood. Therefore, it is fair to say that music and dancing is part of a healthy lifestyle.  Often, we talk about exercises, healthy diet, balanced diet, giving up smoking and alcohol, but we tend to forget that music also plays a significant role in health and well-being.

ADVANTAGES OF SONGS AND DANCING

Some types of music serve as a therapy for the body and soul, good for psychological stability and emotional distress in terms of calming solution.  Many occasions, l have witness soft music helping some clients to fall asleep on the hospital bed, and yet other interventions failed.

Music is medicinal, joyful, and healing of the mind.  The power of music is enormous in health.  It takes control of our emotion positively.  Often people cry, smile, dance, feel happy, fall in love and all in the name of music.  But, what is it in music that its so powerful to capture our inner feelings so passionately. The songs shapes movement and psychological well being.  And, dancing is good for the heart, brain, digestive system, bones, muscles and other organ functions.  It promotes physical and mental stability in all circumstances.  Dancing is so good that l thought if only we can just sing and dance, the world would remain a better place to live.

THE POWER OF SONGS

Music is old and has been in existence from the very beginning and today lives on. Music survives language barrier, ethnicity, gender, sex and inequality.  Music and dancing bring people together all over the world and does not matter if you understand the language used or not, the passion in the voice, the beats, drums all said it all.  You just dance along, even if only to shake the head, it heals the mind, music is a great physician. Long ago, music was a form of a messenger, and great people pass messages through music to the world. The musicians sang with passion and compassion and not for money or fame; they sang so beautifully and delivered the news with enthusiasm.

The introduction of cool and calm music to the hospitals for in-patient is paramount. One may argue about the negative impact, but no, it provides a positive outcome if the right music is delivered.  Music therapy is undoubtedly necessary for critically ill patients, and it depends on circumstances.  However, it does help to heal the mind and make the pain ease off gradually.  It brightens the day and brings hope alive, reduces anxiety and stress of all callings.  Music helps with the sleeping problem and a useful source of meditation.  It is suitable for comfort, and the healing of headaches, hyperactive and underactive moods.  Music is a world-class physician.  Who does not like or want a piece of music?  We need songs for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and also any gathering.  And, indeed, songs are part of a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, everyone should embrace quality music to promote their health. 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT TO ALL MUSICIAN.  THANK YOU
