Bonjour, Everyone!

If only this interview would be translated into all languages.

Dr. Fauci Answers Trevor’s Questions About Coronavirus | The Daily Social Distancing Show

Infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci shares what makes COVID-19 so insidious, busts myths about the virus and breaks down why adhering to public health guidelines is paramount.

At around four-and-a-half minutes into the interview, Trevor Noah asks Dr. Fauci about mortality rate and how people have misconstrued the numbers….

Dr. Fauci answers: “… Two things that are important.  Even though you are young, you are not absolutely invulnerable for sure because we are seeing cases… most of them have some underlying disease, but, several don’t.

… young people, in their thirties, forties, who are getting sick, getting into the hospital, requiring intensive care. Still, the overwhelming proportion are the elderly with underlying disease, but every once in a while, you’re going to get a young person, so, if you think you’re completely invulnerable, you are incorrect.

Second issue that is important – that even though you may not get seriously ill, you can get infected, with relatively few symptoms, either asymptomatic or mild, relatively trivial symptoms, but then, you can infect another person who would then infect a vulnerable person who will then die.

A typical example – I’m young, I’m healthy, but you go home, you infect grandma, grandpa, a sick uncle, so, you have a responsibility not only to protect yourself but you also have a societal, a moral responsibility to protect other people…”

Everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. If you go out, keep at least 6 feet of distance.

U.S. Senator Nancy Skinner

March 16, 2020 Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) and Assemblymembers Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) and Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) issued the following joint statement on the six-county Bay Area Stay-at-Home order:

“During these unprecedented times, it is important that we take care of one another and make decisions that are in the best interest of public health.

“Today’s Order covering six Bay Area counties is a difficult, yet appropriate step to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our families, friends, and communities. It is the right thing to do. This temporary step to stay at home unless absolutely necessary must be followed to reduce the harmful impact of this pandemic. Our County Health leaders are experts in their fields, and they have our best interests in mind.

October 1, 2019





Children’s book author MARIA KAWAH LEUNG shows how a girl named Mia and her loyal companion Happy Dog (he’s much much more than a stuffed animal) use their imagination to cope in an environment they have no control over – domestic violence. 

Together, they learn that friends do not have to always like the same things, and, that love means protecting and comforting each other. Author’s messages save lives – “When you’re scared or sad, talk to grown-ups you trust.”  and  “It’s not a child’s job to make parents happy.”

May all adults be like Ms. Chavez who notices a change in her student’s behavior and takes appropriate action. Heroes come in various shapes and sizes – in this story, they are a little girl, a fuzzy toy who is a beloved friend, and a school teacher.

While the story is set in San Francisco, the theme of family violence is worldwide, one that ought to be discussed openly without stigma. Empower children, give them a chance to blossom into healthy adults. Thank you, author and artist Maria Kawah Leung and illustrators Sandra Elyse Chavez and Maren Sleire Aasgaard, for shining the spotlight on dynamic duo Mia and Happy Dog and providing helpful resources.

Cheering for Mia, Happy Dog, all children and their loyal friends and advocates!

Your BIG fan Teresa Jade LeYung

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
