  1. So it is of course rebounding in Norway too, like it’s going to do, if ALL *prevention* precautions aren’t taken – INCLUDING *everyone* facemasking out in public.

    And as we saw before, it will spread EXPONENTIALLY, unless ALL *preventive* measures ARE taken NOW and as DRASTICALLY as Erna’s and Bent’s early extreme lockdown … which even Norway probably cannot afford again. To review:

    – Sanitation, and the virus most hates normal soap which dissolves it – 20 seconds of lathering/washing. Leave shoes and clothes worn out in public out in the entryway. (Luckily, I have a closed entryway.) With the pure natural neutral soap, I wash my face *and hair* as soon as I get home. (Catching the virus from my pillow would be a downer.)

    – (Overlooked) VENTILATION with/to outside air to lower the aerial “viral load”/density of the aerosol/vapor form of this airborne killer in closed rooms/atmospheres. Windows and DOORS (especially on public transportation) open whenever and wherever possible during the current moderate weather. (Air conditioners which only recycle inside air are under suspicion, I’ve read – shades of the Legionnaires’ Disease.)

    – Facemasking, to prevent all those who don’t know (or may never know) they have it and are contagious up to 14? days from spreading it out to others. And simple cloth masks have been found to be even better than some of the valve types. Moreover, there are the articles that the inexpensive disposable masks being sold at apotek butikks can be recycled after (at least) 3 days, since absorbent paper and cotton surfaces dry it out and kill it.
    (I have given my kids 5 each of them, numbered 1-5 for their school days, in (hopeful) anticipation of the masks becoming mandatory in schools.)
    And since the virus can get into the body through the eyes, our/CDC’s Dr. Fauci is recommending goggles now too, and medical staff in Italy, France, and Spain could be seen wearing them when the virus was raging the worst there.

    – Social distancing in schools, workplaces, and out in public whenever and wherever possible, although on public transportation during rush hour that can be difficult.
