g.  ** Los Barriles Food Bank Update (March 28 2020) **Thank you everyone from the Mayor, community and business leaders for the food and monetary donations so far. This is a true community effort and we have been so touched by the response to date. While the stocks are building steadily, we still need money and food donations. PLEASE NOTE THAT MONEY TRANSFER DETAILS HAVE CHANGED BELOW. Here’s an update of where we are:

Eligibility/Needs Analysis – the Delegacion has already started on an assessment of households. It is right that the authorities are leading on a fair and appropriate assessment as they know the local population, the households etc. We will cross reference with existing systems in town to make sure there is no doubling up.

Food Stocks – the team from Joe’s Deli worked late into the night to do an audit of what we have already including 79 bags of rice, 105 bags/cans of beans, 164 cartons of milk – see photo which doesn’t really do it justice. When the Delegacion has completed the needs analysis, then we can look at how much we are missing and where we need to build stocks. We will then be able to announce a start date.

Staple Items – we are working towards a bank of staples including: beans, rice long-life milk, flour, sugar, cooking oil. When the Los Barriles Food Bank opens, we will add eggs to that list and also the additional foodstuffs that people have been donating.

Distribution – we are finalizing a system to distribute the food which we can share with you in a few days. Some have asked about the government’s responsibility. They are not making any assessment for at least another two weeks. Then we have no idea when they will start to distribute foods – if at all. So the burden lies on us to at least fill any gaps by taking action now.

Good News! – we have just secured a ton (literally a ton!) of beans from a local area supplier at an unbelievably low price thanks to our Mayor’s efforts. This is great news. The team continues to liaise with local suppliers and wholesalers to get the best prices possible in order to make the money work harder.

**IMPORTANT** If you have people asking you about whether they can get food from Los Barriles Food Bank, please refer them to the Delegacion to register – online during out of office hours. Do not send them to any of the collection points around town.

Donating Money
Send Venmo and Paypal to Jeane Harkleroad (who was previous Rotary President in case you don’t recognise her name!) at jhark29@gmail.com· Transferwise – https://transferwise.com/ Please email gibson.ian@outlook.com for an account number, email and name.

· Cash – cash is also be accepted. Please make your donation at Joe’s Deli.
· Wire Transfer – Please email gibson.ian@outlook.com to get the wiring instructions.

Donating Food – Please donate dried and canned foods: beans, rice long-life milk, canned veg/fruit, flour, sugar, cooking oil, cans of tomatoes, tuna etc. and leave them at the drop-off points – La Playa Restaurant, Bahia Real Estate or Café Encinalito (Sasha’s Café).
“Buy & Donate” – at Joe’s Deli and La Pitahaya (Veggie Ladies), when you buy a can or dried food, buy an additional one and then after paying for it, donate it by placing it into the Los Barriles Food Bank bin.

QUESTIONS
Any questions regarding eligibility/food distribution/households = Luis our Mayor.
Any questions regarding getting money to us = Ian Gibson, Rotary gibson.ian@outlook.com
Any questions regarding food stuff and logistics = Emma Nicholson emma.nicholson@kwmexico.mx

b.  During any time of National Emergency, there will always be scammers who
will try to take advantage.  Beware of links that profess to give you
valuable information or who are raising money for people in need.  Those
links may not be to the organizations that you intend.  There are always
constant threats.  Just last week, I got an official looking email from
my bank advising me of a charge from LL Bean.  The first thing I did was
go directly to my bank web site.  Sure enough, no charges.  The real tip
off was LL Bean; geeks wear old t shirts and thick glasses held together
with paper clips and tape and mismatched flip flops!    thecomputerguy@usa.com

c.  We need volunteers to help construct many more emergency face shields for our local healthcare workers (Civil Protection & The Centro De Salud)  Do you have these materials in your house, or can you safely get them (like from your next door neighbors or using a shopping service?):

1.5 liter clear empty plastic bottles (like Topo Chico bottles)
Foam padding: we’ve been using pipe insulation, any foam at least 3/4 inches thick works
Heavy Gauge Wire: for the bottom near chin to provide rigidity
Duct tape to attach the foam padding and wire
Paracord rope
If you can help please email me, thank you – laureleastman@protonmail.com

In my opinion, it’s crossing the line over to “opinions”.  The comments and replies fill up my inbox.  Stick with the facts……..if someone publishes a suggestion, do your research and check with your MD to see if it is valuable and safe for you.

COVID INFO

a.  All Catholic masses have been canceled until future notification. TheTemplo is closed for all of our safety. God Bless you all!!

b.  You may or may not know that yesterday the Mexican government Closed all ports in Baja from Cabo to Ensenada. This statement also made it clear there would be no boats in or out. No recreational sports fishing and no commercial fishing. The article in the Mexican paper said that it is in effect until further notice but I suspect 60 days. The only ships in would be emergency vessels. A bad omen and of course will crush any tourism for this summer. 2 months would also probably mean cancellation of the Bisbee but I have not spoken with Wayne yet. This is from the Mexican paper in Cabo directly.  Stay healthy and inside,  All the closures are both Sea of Cortez and Pacific sides.

c.  El Cardonal recycling is postponed until further notice due to the Coronavirus. Thanks

d.  This is an “idea” for a way around disinfecting wipes (that we cannot even get here!).
Take a bag of baby wipes, cut out the bottom, take them out and put them in a zip-lock baggie. Pour 1 to 1.5 cups of Clorox into the bag and mix it up. There you go, disinfectant wipes. Be sure to mark the baggie. – charlene.wenger@gmail.com

e.  East Cape Health Center discussion for oxygen compressors. We have access through our medical providers for brand new compressors that serve dual purpose. These machines will take room air and convert the 21% in exchange for medical grade oxygen, this device has dual function with nebulizer capability. This dual function helps with respiratory support in the event of exacerbation of asthma, emphysema, COPD or pneumonia.  If you have budgetary restraints we are selling our old fully functional compressors without the nebulizer capability.

COVID INFO

a.  3/26/20: East Cape Health Center today we have 8 cases of Covid-19 in Cabo, most from the same wedding party almost 3 weeks ago. Another couple flew in from US and became ill once they arrived. They are contacting anyone who they made contact with. They have now restricted incoming flights. Please encourage your friends or family coming in from US or elsewhere to comply to the 2 week “stay home” policy to limit our exposure here in southern Baja.  If you have plans to go shopping stop by our pharmacy for mask and gloves. Our clinics, lab and pharmacy will remain open. We have cleaning crews disinfecting the clinics before and after patients. We are taking all the recommended precautions with screening at the door before entering the clinic. We have the hazmat suits for our own protection.. Stay tuned… charlene.wenger@gmail.com

b.  Dear Friends, and Patients  –  Letter from our Dr. Dennis O’Brien

There are currently scads of information on social media, television etc. regarding Corona virus in the US and abroad.  Most of it is useful and requires the application of common sense and action.  Below, I’d like to share a few thoughts with you that will hopefully put your mind at ease.
Corona viruses have been around for a while.   SARS , from a few years back, is a corona virus.  This present virus, COVID19,  just like any other virus, will not respond to antibiotics as there is no cell wall to destroy (unlike a bacteria).
So………..what do we do?  There are many things we can do to decrease the likelihood of contracting a viral infection, being a carrier, or both.
All of the precautions regarding hand washing , direct contact, avoiding large crowds and public places are good things to practice and make good common sense and remember:  YOU CAN BE SYMPTOM FREE AND STILL BE A CARRIER.  That said, let’s all be responsible community members.
Good over all self care is also a must right now.   Simple things such as staying hydrated, avoiding sugar of all kinds (  and  booze), rest, avoiding smoking of any kind, avoiding over exposure of sun, minimizing stress, avoiding over exercise and avoiding over eating  are a good place to start.  Perhaps the best single self care item is AVOIDING FEAR in  all its many sources.  It has been well demonstrated  that stress lowers an immune response and this  is even  more important now.
Regarding an immune response, the following will be helpful for us all in moving forward.
Getting information: As mentioned, there is a lot of information out there  about COVID19.  Your best bet is to listen to the experts in the field of immunology and epidemiology. To date, information coming from hopeful  drug companies and politicians have been  incorrect and misleading in my observation .
That said, Mainstream medicine and Big Pharma are planning an OUTSIDE IN  approach to treating this.  That is, recommending drugs that have not been tested for safety and efficacy, as well as massive vaccinations.  The problem with OUTSIDE IN is that even if it produced good clinical outcomes, which it may or may not,  it will not be available for at  least a year  from now and by then the damage will already have been done.
INSIDE OUT works in a different way.  What it does is to activate your own immune response from the inside, allowing your own immune players to selectively fight off an invader of any kind.
How do we achieve that?  The self care tips above are a good place to start.
Next, (and oversimplified), we have to activate certain white blood cell types known as PHAGOCYTES.  What they do is patrol your body from cell to cell, and when they detect that there is an invader, they engulf the invader and destroy it. For this to happen the phagocyte needs the triad of Soluble Calcium, real Vitamin C (NOT ASCORBIC ACID), and essential fatty acids. Soluble Calcium is needed to get the white blood cells mobile and patrolling.  Essential fatty acids are needed to get Calcium out of the bloodstream and into the tissues and thus, into the phagocyte so that it can be mobile and get to work where it is needed.  Real Vitamin C  is what allows a phagocyte to have the  knock out punch it needs to eliminate an invader. (Note:  ascorbic acid is the antioxidant portion of the Vitamin C molecule and is  less that 5% by weight of the complex Vitamin C molecule. To say that ascorbic acid is Vitamin C is like saying that a steering wheel is a car.  Don’t get bamboozled!).
The triad I have used for the last 29 years regarding viruses is made by  Standard Process.
1.  Calcium lactate tablets   9 per day   3-3-3
2,  Cataplex C tablets          6-9 per day
3.  Cataplex F tablets           6-9 per day
Standard  Process has recently started a program called PATIENT DIRECT, which gives patients the ability to order directly from them and deliver to your door.  Please let me know if you have any questions about  this.
Back to COVID-19.  We have to remember that microorganisms such as this are NOT PREDATORS, THEY ARE SCAVENGERS.  That said, they will thrive on
dead, raw, irritated, devitalized  tissue.  So……….  if you  are interested in the INSIDE OUT principle, the above information will be helpful to you.
 It is estimated  that the majority of humans on the planet will be exposed to COVID 19
 within a year.  In the US,  unlike China and S Korea, it will be more difficult to contain  for a variety of reasons and will continue to spread over a longer period of time, increasing  our odds of exposure.  That said, we as individuals have limited options regarding  exposure to COVID-19.  What we do have is the ability to  make good choices for ourselves and our families by raising our vitality FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
 If you have any questions about any of the above information, feel free to contact me at densaidyes at aol.com.  Please feel free to forward this article to others.  My Best to you and your families  Dr Dennis O’Brien

COVID INFO

a.  Contact Char if you want to donate money to help her prepare the health clinic for COVID-19 or order a oxygen compressor, which is what you’ll need if seriously I’ll. She is ordering compressors soon so put your order in right away. The clinic has 4 oxygen compressors We may need a lot more ,so order one for the clinic. Lets be prepared!

b. East Cape Health Center Update – As we continue to track the CoronaVirus we are researching the mixed stories for validity. Today I learned of  5 cases of Covid -19 that have been identified in Cabo. All tested in Hospital H+ and now recovering in their hotel. The group flew in together for a wedding and 2 became ill almost 2 weeks ago, and the other 3 have been recently tested after developing symptoms. Fortunately, the southern baja has been lucky but those coming in from the US or elsewhere may bring it down to us. The Mexican President is looking the other way and not imposing restrictions, as elsewhere in the world. View this web page and see how this is expected to run its course.  https://www.nytimes.com/video/world/americas/100000007049738/as-coronavirus-approaches-mexico-president-looks-other-way.html?action=click&gtype=vhs&version=vhs-heading&module=vhs&region=title-area&cview=true&t=5

For daily tracking log into https://coronavirus.bcs.gob.mx/  under Casos in Mexico click the green box and a window will appear describing all the known positive cases in the different states in Mexico.  We now have masks and hand sanitizer ( bring your own pump bottle) for sale in our pharmacy. – charlene.wenger@gmail.com

c.  Something I would like to share with everyone, based on my previous experience as a restaurant/bar owner: the state health inspector always insisted on us having a bucket of water containing 5% bleach. This was used to frequently rinse our bar towels used to wipe bar and kitchen surfaces. This simple solution kills ALL bacteria and viruses, yet is mild enough that employees didn’t need to wear gloves (thus a bonus as they were keeping their hands sanitized).     Bartenders, money handlers, food prep employees all benefit from using these sanitized towels, thus having bacteria and virus-free hands probably 99%+ of the time.     I suggest all of us consider keeping this solution around our homes, as it is an effective killer of bacteria AND the Corona virus.
Ron & Lynda, Baja Cleaning Crew – BajaLynda315@gmail.com

d. Be Aware:  In the past five days I have spoken to six people who had just arrived on international flights.  Of the two single persons and two couples only one person was self- quarenteening themselves.  A local shop owner had to ask another couple to leave the shop after finding out they had just arrived on an international flight and decided to go about town shopping

Note:  I’m getting too many emails, “do this”, “don’t do that”.   The objective of the BPE will be concentrated on businesses and the real-time health and welfare of the citizens and x-pats of the East Cape.  Restaurants, if you’re doing To-Go, send me your menu and I’ll try to post.  One good suggestion, please don’t come to BCS until we get an all clear!  If you need to express yourself, please use FaceBook.

COVID INFO

a.  Websites:  discoverbaja.com  for road info.  I have received 6 emails from folks driving north crossing at TJ, Mexicali, & Calexico (horses mouth) and NO problems.  Now if anyone has had an issue would like to hear that story

b  Here’s an official US website that will give the latest Travel info for US Citizens from the US Embassy in Mexico City.
https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html/
From here choose “Mexico,” and then select the latest Embassy Messages – Alerts.

c.  East Cape Health Center is watching the following website for accurate information.
https://coronavirus.bcs.gob.mx/.   IF you review you will see only 2 cases have been identified in Cabo both were in the hospital for a short stay and recuperating at home. Please check this census daily and it will calm down the stories you may be hearing. – charlene.wenger@gmail.com

d.  East Cape Health Center Announcement so many questions are surfacing about COVID-19 so I wanted to help clarify our protocols:  IF you develop symptoms of headache, sore throat, dry cough, fever, muscle and joint pain ( more than normal ) let us know and we can advise you clinic: 624-124-8203/emergency: 624-160-1997. We have one room designated for screening anyone with infectious symptoms and we can rule out other infections or viruses with tests in our lab.
If you have traveled Internationally or in the US ( Washington, California or NY ) or have close contact with anyone who has tested positive, we can arrange testing if it is indicated. Just like everywhere in the world, Mexico has the capability to test suspicious cases and treat the symptoms at home. IF hospitalization is indicated Hospital H+ has reassured me they can handle hospitalized patients in regular rooms or ICU.
Please keep my number handy 624-157-0081 and if you have information for me please contact me by email: charlene.wenger@gmail.com
