MedFast Urgent Care Centers now has testing available for COVID-19 in Melbourne and Brevard County, Florida
Same day, physical testing available. A phone consultation is required before testing can be administered. If you meet the criteria for a test, we will assign you a date, time and location for testing.
We ask that anyone who is experiencing coronavirus symptoms immediately call us at 321-MEDFAST (633-3278) for a phone consultation and to learn more about how to get testing.
Symptoms for coronavirus can range from mild to severe.
The following symptoms can appear 2-14 days after you have been exposed to the virus:
- Shortness of breath
If you think you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, call us for a consultation over-the-phone. Those experiencing trouble breathing, persistent pain in the chest or other severe symptoms should seek medical attention immediately.
Avoiding exposure to coronavirus is the best way to prevent getting sick. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, do not touch your face, including eyes, nose and mouth, and maintaining a 6ft distance from others, when out in public can help you protect yourself from COVID-19.
Information About COVID-19
Coronavirus, or COVID-19 is not a living organism. It is a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation) and coverts them into aggressor and mutiplier cells.
How do you kill coronavirus?
Since coronavirus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.
Coronavirus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
Heat melts fat; that is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius (77°F) for washing hands, clothes and everything else. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.
Alcohol, or any mixutre with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the coronavirus protein, breaking it down from the inside.
Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it in its pure form and that will hurt your skin.
NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive. Carole Lynn writes: THAT is why my natural protocol works. Because antibiotics do not.
How long does coronavirus survive on surfaces?
Coronavirus can survive on multiple types of surfaces, including fabrics, copper, wood, cardboard, metal and plastic.
- Fabric and porous surfaces: 3 hours
- Copper and wood: 4 hours
- Cardboard: 24 hours
- Metal: 42 hours
- Plastic: 72 hours
NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only (see above timeframes), but if you shake a surface contaminated with coronavirus, or or use a feather duster on it, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours and can lodge in your nose.
Can coronaviurs survive in the cold?
The coronavirus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial cold air like air conditioners in houses and cars. They also need moisture to stay stable and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.
Can UV light breakdown coronavirus?
UV light on any object that may contain coronavirus breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. However, be careful when using UV light as it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin.
Does vodka kill coronavirus?
No vodka or spirits are strong enough to breakdown the coronavirus protein. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol and you need at least 65%.
Does vinegar kill coronavirus?
Vinegar is NOT useful against coronavirus becuase it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
Does Listerine kill coronavirus?
Listerine can be effective against coronavirus because it is 65% alcohol.
When should you wash your hands to prevent coronavirus spread?
You have to wash your hands before and after touching mucose, food, locks, doorknobs, switches, remote controls, cellphones, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. Also before and after using the bathroom.
You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much handwashing, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks of the skin. Using thicker skin moisturizers can help prevents coronavirus hiding in the micro cracks.
Also, keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.
Can you catch coronavirus outside?
The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less concentration there can be.
