Testing of the First Coronavirus Vaccine Has Begun

Forty-five volunteers got their first dose of the hoped-for vaccine yesterday, and will be given the second dose 28 days later.

They'll then be kept track of and tested for a year to gauge the vaccine's effectiveness, or ineffectiveness.

I suppose that if they get positive early results they might start giving people the shot on an experimental basis earlier than a year from now.

Still, it sounds like the cure will come too late to stop this current outbreak.

This article suggests that people should make sure they get fresh air and sunlight, even while "social distancing."

Studies have shown the benefits of what nature can do for people, especially for those who are stressed and battle anxiety or depression. Social isolation is a double-edged sword that can make life seem lonely, but walking outside could help fight that. A study from 2015 found that walking 90 minutes in a natural or urban settling lowered activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is the region that focuses on negative emotions.

“When people are depressed or under high levels of stress, this part of the brain malfunctions, and people experience a continuous loop of negative thoughts,” said Dr. Jason Strauss.

In the wake of social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak, Harvard suggested looking at social distancing as an outlet for doing things you’ve always wanted to do but never did. While gyms have been ordered to close by Tuesday in New York City, there are ways to still get in exercise whether inside your home or outside.

Take long walks or run outside, but be mindful of your surroundings. Harvard suggests maintaining at least six feet between you and non-family members when outside. You can even do yoga outside or indoors, as well.
