Welcome to My Home Group, your source for real estate in Arizona. 

Due to the Coronavirus I'd like to share some information in regards to what we're all going through today.

This post puts the Coronavirus in layman terms and helped me to understand better. Maybe it will help you too!

This is from an immunologist at Johns Hopkins University:

Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal  flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share  this to others who don’t understand...

It has to do with RNA sequencing.... I.e. genetics.

Seasonal flu is an “all human virus”. The DNA/RNA chains that make up  the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that  your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year...  you get immunity two ways...through exposure to a virus, or by getting a  flu shot.

Novel viruses, come from animals.... the WHO tracks  novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations).  Usually these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the  case of H1N1) (birds in the case of the Spanish flu). But once, one of  these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to  humans... then it’s a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or  acquired immunity.. the RNA sequencing of the genes inside the virus  isn’t human, and the human immune system doesn’t recognize it so, we  can’t fight it off.

Now.... sometimes, the mutation only allows  transfer from animal to human, for years it’s only transmission is from  an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can  now transfer human to human... once that happens..we have a new  contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation,  thats what decides how contagious, or how deadly it’s gonna be..

H1N1 was deadly....but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as  the Spanish flu. It’s RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host  differently, too.

Fast forward.

Now, here comes this  Coronavirus... it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how  long...but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December  2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only  animals could give it to a person... But here is the scary part.... in  just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from  human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, “slippery”

This Coronavirus, not being in any form a “human” virus (whereas we  would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a  rocket. And this was because, Humans have no known immunity...doctors  have no known medicines for it.

And it just so happens that this  particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way the way  that it causes great damage to human lungs..

That’s why  Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of  influenza.... this one is slippery! And it’s a lung eater...And, it’s  already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with,  strain s, and strain L....which makes it twice as hard to develop a  vaccine.

We really have no tools in our shed, with this. History  has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places has helped  in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to  close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the  Spanish Flu.

Factoid: Henry VIII stayed in his room and allowed  no one near him, till the Black Plague passed...(honestly...I understand  him so much better now). Just like us, he had no tools in his shed,  except social isolation...

And let me end by saying....right now  it’s hitting older folks harder... but this genome is so slippery...if  it mutates again (and it will). Who is to say, what it will do next.

Be smart folks... acting like you’re unafraid is so not sexy right now.


 

Due to the Coronavirus I will only be meeting with Clients through mobile, text, email, and virtual tours for homes. I'm still available to search for your dream home or list your current home. It's just been made easier through virtual tours and e-sign.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concern. 


Thank You,
