Week 22, 2020: Please Stay At Home, Practice COVID-19 Prevention Measures, AND Stay Healthy!




Let’s face it, COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon. At least, not until they find THE vaccine or the right treatment strategy. For now, what the lay person can do is to protect themselves from within and without with the right measures.

The WorldHealth Organization recommends these steps to keep yourself from being infected by the Coronavirus:

Aside from these notes, doctors also recommend keeping your immune system in tip-top shape.


Here are other posts by Dr. Agbayani, on how important Vitamin D is in keeping oneself healthy enough to resist the Coronavirus: 
If you are a diabetic, make sure to keep your blood sugar at doctor-recommended levels (Dr. May Uyking-Naranjo recommends an average of 100 mg/dL), eat healthy, lay off the sweets, the fat, the carbs, and everything that will push you a few points towards an unhealthy state of being. Know your numbers, and make sure you stay within the ranges that your doctor recommends.

Keep a sensible diet, exercise when you can, and get some sun where you can. If you lack sunlight exposure, again, you may take Vitamin D supplements.

Drink plenty of water, and make sure that your mental health is also in tip-top shape, because a negative disposition will also harm your overall health.

Again, don’t rush out with the maddening crowds, and work on being happy and content staying at home and social distancing.

Once we beat this pandemic, you can eventually go out, too, and your life will resume in the new normal. Just be patient, and know that doing your part to #FlattenTheCurve not only ensures that YOU stay healthy, it also ensures that you won’t be part of the chain of transmission of the COVID-19.

Back in the early days of the Coronavirus scourge, there were social media posts saying that the rate of transmission of COVID-19 is at the alarming rate of 1 patient with the potential to infect 3,500 other individuals. Nowadays, the transmission rates are more grounded in fact, especially since we’re past 100 days since the first transmission in the Philippines.

The 9th of May marked the hundredth day since the first transmission in the country, and the figures were at:

  • 10,463 Total Cases
  • 8,033 Active Cases
  • 1,734 Recoveries
  • 696 Casualties


A hundred days is a little over 3 months, and at that rate, with 10,463 Total Cases marking the third month, it only means that, indeed, 1 patient CAN, INDEED, infect more or less 3,000 others.

So don’t be that ONE who can infect THREE THOUSAND other poor, hapless souls. Do your part, and practice safe living in the new normal!

*We noticed a discrepancy in the numbers; last week, it was stated that there were 35 healthcare worker deaths due to COVID-19, but this week, the numbers state that there were only 31 casualties.

Hopefully, the DOH will be able to correct or explain these numbers in the next data drops.
