The Chinese have learned much about the conduct of the cruise through autopsies. It appears that the virus creates thick mucus that grows to block the airways and lungs. Keeping the mugs from gaining control is paramount. Several logical steps can be taken now.

  1. Drink lots of warm liquids: coffee, tea, soup, and water.

  2. Every 20 minutes, take a sip of warm water. This washes any virus in your mouth into your stomach, where gastric juices will neutralize it before it gets into your lungs.

  3. Gargle with an antiseptic (like vinegar or lemon) and warm water every day.

  4. The virus attaches to hair and clothes. Soap will kill it, but you must take a bath or shower as soon as you get in from the street. Do not sit down when you come in. Go directly to the bath.

  5. If you cannot wash your clothes daily, hang them in direct sunlight, which will neutralize the virus.

  6. Wash metallic surfaces carefully because the virus can remain viable on these surfaces forum to 9 days.

  7. Be vigilant when you touch handrails, door knobs, etc. Take care in washing these as well.

  8. Wash your hangs every 20 minutes (for 20 seconds) using any soap that foams (You'll begin to feel like a dentist!).

  9. Eat fruits and vegetables. Try to elevate your zinc level, not just your vitamin C level.

  10. Try to avoid eating and drinking cold things (Oh no! No ice cream?)

  11. No smoking.

  12. Animals DO NOT spread the virus.

  13. If you feel any discomfort in your throat, attack it immediately using the methods listed above. The virus will remain in your throat for 3 or 4 days before it starts attacking your lungs, so neutralize it early.
