If, like me, you have the desire to help but are unsure of how, because things feel seismic and primal and massive, I propose one thing we can always do to avoid #paralysis is begin with personal practice. #BlackLivesMatter

We become what we practice.
#Practice a skill and you become better at it. Cease its practice and you become better at its opposite. There's no status quo. We are always practicing something. #BlackLivesMatter

If I cease practicing the acquisition, validation and refinement of knowledge, I don't just become worse at learning, I become better at misinformation and ignorance. #BlackLivesMatter

Why is #asymptomatic spread important? Well today I was thinking about #polio virus. It was very #contagious, but 95% of people had no symptoms but were still infectious. About 4-5% of people had minor illness: fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, weakness. #SARSCoV2 #COVIDー19
2/ About 1-2% of people had severe muscle pain, and stiffness in the neck and back. <1% of cases resulted in #paralysis including the legs and the nerves controlling breathing and swallowing necessitating use of the iron lung #ventilators. #Polio could attack the #CNS.
3/ At its peak in 1952, more than 21,000 #Americans contracted a paralyzing form of #polio, and 3,000 died from it. Once infected, there was no treatment besides time and tending to the symptoms. Interestingly, polio mostly attacked young children under age 5.
