You're welcome. I guess an accident is another possibility since, as far as I know, she last posted on 10/29/20 and said they were going to Happy Hour that evening. No matter what the cause, their passing is tragic.

I noticed that the link above for the obituary doesn't work. Try this:

What is interesting is that salt kills the Virus , so breathing salt air is a sorta protective thing.


It does not make you immune, but it does kill the virus if it comes in contact with it such as on a hand rail, etc.

Gargling with it seems unlikely to do much. But breathing it in the air means the air is less likely to have an active virus in it and if an active virus gets in to your nose and lungs, breathing could kill the initial small amount before it grows. I know about this from a major university that has fully tested it and submitted it to the Government for approval.

Racer, you can't be serious. (Right?)

From your link: "Canadian and international researchers ARE EXAMINING whether coating masks, air filters, and high-touch surfaces with sodium chloride (salt) might be an effective option to help prevent the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and other viruses and bacteria."

It does when it comes in direct contact with the Virus. I am involved with a client ( I am a business consultant) who is involved with a University that has tested it completely and it passed every test. It has been submitted to the Gov't for approval.



The news covers things that do not apply to it, like on masks, saline solutions for gargling and such. It will be used as a wipe on material to kill the bacteria that ends up on it, not so much breathing as the contact does not last as long for all of the virus, though breathing beach air could well help if someone near you has it. I will post more when the university gets more data. The tests were on Covid. I simply gave the link to show that it can work, just not in ever area. This will ultimately be in the news. You are among the first to hear of this.


The other links some have posted are about non use applications, not this one as they do not know about it.

I think the point of cancelling the boat parade was to prevent people from congregating. Those travelling on boats were less likely to contribute to virus transmission.

The 4,606 new coronavirus infections announced Sunday (12/20)shattered the county’s previous one-day high of 3,445, according to data compiled by The Times. There have been 3,000-plus new daily cases logged countywide only five times throughout the entire pandemic — all since Dec. 13.

You can check ICU bed capacity by hospital in your region with this NY Times interactive. You may need a subscription in order use it, but I'm not sure.

How Full Are Hospital I.C.U.s Near You?
By Matthew Conlen, John Keefe, Lauren Leatherby and Charlie Smart Updated Dec. 21, 2020
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...pgtype=Homepage

Quote:
Almost one-fifth of U.S. hospitals with intensive care units reported that at least 95 percent of their I.C.U. beds were full in the week ending Dec. 17, as the coronavirus pandemic surged to alarming highs. Nationwide, 78 percent of intensive care hospital beds were occupied.

See how the pandemic has affected recent hospital capacity in the map below, which shows data reported by individual hospitals. Health officials said that the data should not discourage sick people from seeking care.
