CORONAVIRUS & Sleep [Tracking the COVID-19, Wuhan Virus] - SuperSleeper - 02-14-2020

Interesting informative video regarding the Wuhan COVID-19 "coronavirus" and how sleep may help you stave off these types of virus outbreaks:

Very interesting!

I can also recommend, for a more general overview of the science of sleep, Matthew Walker's book "Why We Sleep."

I'm sure hoping this doesn't grow to be bigger than it already is. Be safe AB.

Apparently the mortality skyrockets(heart failure) if you get re-infected, which is another characteristic with this virus. You can get re-infected.

No immunity once infected, sounds like.  Wouldn't that make development of a vaccine rather difficult?

This is a major problem, plus the fact that with this virus, there's no established herd immunity, as there is with the normal strains of influenza A or B that we get each year.  This one's a whole new animal, it seems.

This video was created over a month ago when the coronavirus was in it's infancy, but some good advice, nonetheless:
