Ohio Legislators want to minimize/ strip Dr Acton's Order Power

Ohio Nurses Association support Dr Acton...

IMPORTANT: Show #NursesStandwithActon by messaging legislators now!

Certain Ohio lawmakers are fast-tracking a bill that would strip power from Dr. Acton. Instead of allowing medical experts drive decisions, some legislators would rather have the power, with some stating the fear of overburdening the healthcare system was blown out of proportion.

Show this is unacceptable and message legislators. Dr. Acton's work to protect Ohioans has been nothing short of incredible.

In remarks to FOX19 NOW, Householder also said last week: "House Republicans believe it’s not government’s role to manage people’s lives. What you can wear, where you can go, when you can go there or if you can leave your home are decisions people make for a child or pet.

“House Republicans believe a vast majority of Ohioans understand their own circumstances and can make their own decisions without government mandates and orders. Now that we know there will be no surge, then if a citizen is worried about getting sick, don’t go out. It’s that simple.”
Householder is scheduled to address the media Wednesday after the session ends.
FOX19 NOW is seeking comment from DeWine and Acton.
We are told the amendment proposed Wednesday is separate than a bill expected from State Rep. John Becker, R-Union. Becker’s “Need Ohio Working Now” bill was not formally introduced as of early Wednesday morning.

GOP lawmakers backing the amendment have support from 44 of the 60 Republicans in the House.

5/4/20 COVID 19 Update: Ohio Nurses Association

We should know a dine-in restaurant re-open date later this week and BMVs won’t open until late May. Plus, the governor has words for demonstrators crossing the line and there are 20,474 COVID-19 cases in Ohio.

More summary information from the May 4, 2020 COVID-19 update from Governor DeWine, Lt. Governor Husted and ODH Director, Dr. Amy Acton:

• There are 20,474 cases and 19,609 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ohio spanning 88 counties with 1,056 fatalities, 3,809 hospitalizations and 1,090 ICU admissions. The age range is less than 1 to 106 with a median age of 51. 44% are female, 56% are male. 16% are healthcare workers.

• The governor started the press conference with a moment of silence for the 50th anniversary of the tragic events at Kent State University.

• In the next several days, we can expect a protocol and re-open date for dine-in restaurants. The workgroup for restaurants consists of representatives from smaller establishments to bigger chains.

• Retail opens May 12th, but retail establishments can do curbside pick ups and appointments right now.

• The coronavirus dashboard is now showing 21-day trends as opposed to 5-day trends for cases, death, hospitalizations and ICU admissions. Trend reporting is important as we re-open Ohio.

• The governor stated that he normally doesn’t comment on demonstrators and he has great respect for their right to demonstrate. He said he is fair game, but it is not fair game to disrespect the news media. He says to come after him instead of going after those who are demonstrating the first amendment right and informing the public. It is also not fair game to bother the family of Dr. Acton. He said he is the one who sets the policy and the one elected to office, so demonstrate against him.

• We are nearing 22,000 COVID-19 tests per day. Increased testing does not replace infection control measures such as social distancing and wearing a mask. Identification will help stop the spread of the infection throughout a facility or the community. While testing is expanded,

• While testing is expanded, it is not unlimited. Testing priorities: #1: Ohioans with symptoms who are hospitalized or healthcare workers. #2 Ohioans with symptoms who are residents of congregate living settings, first responders/public health workers/critical infrastructure workers, 65 and older and living with underlying conditions. Also, Ohioans without symptoms who are residents or staff exposed to an outbreak in a congregate living settings and other Ohioans who are designated by public health officials to evaluate/manage community outbreaks. #3: Ohioans with and without symptoms who are receiving essential surgeries/procedures or receiving other medically necessary procedures not requiring an overnight stay/inpatient hospital admission.

• There are 5 BMVs open across the state to meet special needs. The opening of the rest won’t happen until late May. They are working on the plan for safety measures and the re-hiring of staff. They are also working on the ‘get inline, online’ system, where people can check-in online to allow for an orderly process for re-opening. There still are suspended expiration dates until the BMVs are re-opened.

• We have tested approximately 3.4% of Ohio’s population.

All this chatter about a vaccine for COVID 19...by the end of the year.

Well, I tend to be extremely skeptical about this ….I sense it is more misleading information generated by the tRump Campaign along with Big Pharma...the date alone is highly suspicious as it gets tRump's false hopes through the November Election...then, a vaccine can take a minimum of 18 months and historically been 5 years...

Yes, they are accessing past virus/vaccines on file with some of the screening steps already having been tested for safety...I fear that they will claim the vaccine is going to be effective, making monumental strives...but no one will know for sure...how could we...claiming the vaccine is available by end of the year, after November...

With opening up America prematurely, we sense many, many more COVID 19 deaths....but I think they will be minimized and or not recorded as COVID 19 related...false recording..." All is fine" message will we cheered.

tRump is into the big, big campaign bluff over a millennium. Be aware of such possibilities...just sayng...my gut instructs tell me so.

I am suspicious....the "Rich" are taking Convalesent COVID 19 plasma/ antibodies.

Our cowardly leaders, tRump, Pence...GOP'ers ….I sense their arrogance with the COVID 19 Virus is because they are receiving the COVID-19 antibodies...I sense there is a big secret amongst them...they have some protection….while we are NOT protected and are just " nobodies" to them...

Just a thought...I sense Boris Johnson received the antibody plasma too...before he needed to be intubated...then recovered in 3 days in ICU..

Pence said openly yesterday at the Mayo Clinic..." I get tested for COVID-19 all the time, I don't have it"...hell, we can't get tested once! They get tested because they know it is lethal...just saying.

It is just a speculative thought...

Okay...this is how I see America in 2020...

From where I am sitting...this is what I think needs to be going on.....we must test everyone, then quarantine those positive for COVID 19, then retest them...the target goal is ZERO infections... TESTING/ QUARINTINE/ RE-TESTING is as essential as breathing in resolving this pandemic..

This will take a few more months if we remain locked down, everyone wears a mask, practice ongoing hand washing and use hand sanitizer like a Nurse in a Home Care setting business..

So, here ya go... a nurse washes hands as soon as she enters a home..( wears a mask now when entering every home and for duration of visit) uses hand sanitizer during any touching pre-post, uses disinfectant to on all surfaces, equipment/ pre-post client contact...then with next visit. Repeat...cleans with disinfectant the car/ steering wheel, door handles etc...when nurse goes home...enters say thru the garage, strips down and places clothes in dryer....say 15 minutes...then washes clothes., washes hands, shower and changes into comfortable clothes all before seeing family....cleans off door nobs with disinfectant...

This is how everyone needs to behave for at least the next few months...I actually believe this will last for another 18 months and/or until we get a vaccine..

If we open up for business as usual, malls, sports...we rekindle the mass infectious epidemic without any ability to track, isolate and quarantine...There will be 600, 000 deaths in a month...the 49 states at least will be a hot spot...

So, stock up on canned goods, plant a garden, try home canning with a pressure canner, continue your hand washing, disinfectant regime, always wear a mask when out in public and take hand sanitizer with you...It will be like " The Walking Dead" Season 1.

Did CNN stop airing Trumps late afternoon infomercials?

I was not home to check and verify if CNN wised up and started to ignore tRumps fake covid news conferences...Especially since they muzzled Dr Fauci…

Is this correct?

Okay....Just my guess...

Trump and probably his tight group of minions...probably already got and will receive the COVID 19 Antibody plasma....Like people who receive bi-weekly or monthly IVIG Infusions for their auto immune disease therapy...Probably procured from recovering COVID patients from another country....That is my guess...immunity may not last longer than a month but I sense something is going on...he acts to calm/ feels too safe...

I saw a cute post on FB....Called tRump, The Virus King...

I kind of like this new title for tRump….

Understanding a Virus and COVID-19 update..

Coming from Johns Hopkins Hospital

New information coming from Johns Hopkins Hospital.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE VIRUS FROM JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL

The following is from Irene Ken physician, whose daughter is an Asst. Prof in infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins University, quite informative.
* 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 converts 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 BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive.

* 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 and wood)
- 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.

* 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 will 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.

* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.

* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.

* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.

* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.

* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.

* 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.

Ohio Nurses Association give 100% support/ their weight for N95 Mask sterilization

Ohio Nurses Association

26 mins ·

Attn. nurses, healthcare workers, first responders, others on the frontline and those who support us on the frontline:

Share this post to show your support of Governor Mike DeWine and to tell the U.S. Food and Drug Administration we need N95 masks and we need them NOW. Approve the sterilization of N95 masks at FULL capacity. Our lives depend on it.


This sterilization process with steaming Hydrogen Peroxide will service multiple states...not just Ohio....but we DO NOT NEED FDA quantity restrictions of processing....FDA said only 10,000 a day to be processed when they can do 160,000 a day. Mike DeWine is apparently pushing the FDA to "wake up".
