COVID-19 - How We Are Helping

This is an unprecedented time globally. 

We now live in a global village.  This is borne out by the fact that what affects someone in Ilasamaja is like to have an impact either directly or indirectly on someone in Newfoundland.

That is why more than ever we must come together to combat and defeat this global pandemic.

Here at Body Beautiful Flp  we will do our bit to help by creating our own little portal where we will share free advice information and resources you can access at this time of global crisis

We are ALL in this TOGETHER 

A few important things to note. Nothing on this page is new. It has probably been shared in different forms by many others and at different times on other platforms.  

However, what is important is this, having one more information channel can only be a good thing in the fight against this virus.   We want to help in our own little way by providing a mini one stop shop  for the following:

  • Information on the Virus - including
    • symptoms,
    • prevention,
    • what to do if you feel you have contracted the virus

  • Information on -  Where to get help with health care
  • Where to get help with food
  • Where to get help  money - either as individuals or business owners
  • How to stay well, active and productive during this period

What exactly is COVID-19

This information is sourced from the WHO -  World Health Organisation 

According to  WHO Covid-19 is a respiratory infectious disease caused by the newly discovered corona virus.

Most people who contract the disease will experience mild to moderate symptons or respiratory illness.

Older people or people who have underlying medical conditions (including but not limited to diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer ) are more likely to become very ill or have a very high risk of dying from the viral infection

How to Protect yourself from COVID-19 

  • Wash your hands with soap or  an alcohol based hand sanitiser.  Where you use soap, wash thoroughly (say for about 20 seconds) - as a rough guide, for as long as it takes you to sing a full verse of the  "♪Happy Birthday... ♪" song

  • Avoid touching your face and mouth and nose  

  • Practice social distancing - stay a distance of about 2 meters (approx 6 feet) away from  folks especially those who are coughing or sneezing

  • Maintain respiratory hygeine - Ensure that when you have to cough of sneeze that you cover  your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or with tissue

  • Protect and boost your immune health by eating healthy - ie. fresh fruits with plenty of natural vitamins especially Vitamin  C

  • If you have a cough fever or difficulty breathing get medical help early
