Info about COVID-19

Hopkins University has sent this detailed note on avoiding the contagion: * The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells. * Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own.  The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies. * The virus is very fragile;  the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat.  That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam).  By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own. * HEAT melts fat;  this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius for washing hands, clothes and everything.  In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful. * Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus. * Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside. * Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin. * NO Antibacterial will help. The is a virus not a living organism like bacteria;  they cannot kill what is not alive with antibiotics. Read labels, use antivirals. * NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth.  While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic; and wood, because it removes all the moisture and does not let it peel off and disintegrates).  ), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic).  But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
* Because it is airborne and can live on surfaces for varying times, the most likely transmission of the virus is from your hands to your face- from your hands to your face and inside your eyes, into your nose or into your mouth. Avoid touching you face. * The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars.  They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness.  Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments might degrade it faster. * UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein.  For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect.  Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin, eventually causing wrinkles and skin cancer. * The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin. It is spread by respiratory droplets, mostly from coughs and sneezes. Try and stay 6 feet away from others and cover your mouth when coughing and sneezing. * Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat. * NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, work.  The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%. * LISTERINE May be good alternative!  It is 65% alcohol. Not enough info yet. * The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be.  The more open or naturally ventilated, the less. Get outside with social distancing. * This is a everyday activity but you have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc.  And when using the bathroom.
* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks.  The thicker the moisturizer, the better.* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.  Shaving beards is also recommended, they are likely harboring many germs.
* Once again, wash your hands, frequently.
  • Additional Actions by the Ayuntamiento

    The Almuñécar City Council increases the cleaning and disinfection of high-traffic places, such as bus and taxi stops, hotels, police, supermarkets.

In each phase , the opening hours of shops and hotels will be gradually extended .  In addition, the capacity of shops, bars, restaurants, transport and public shows will depend on the alert level – from 1 to 4 – declared in each municipality.  A decision that has been agreed at the meeting of the Advisory Council of High Impact Public Health Alerts (Committee of Experts) of Andalucía.  Read more here.
