  1. For those who do not like to read articles in total.. bottom line: FDA has issued warnings about a Mx hand sanitzier comapny that has used methanol alcohol in their hand sanitizer products. The name of the company is: Eskbiochem SA de CV in Mexico - contains wood methanol, a toxic substance that could ultimately result in death of absorbed through the skin or ingested. Here are a list of the hand sanitizers manufactured by Eskbiochem: All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01) Esk Biochem Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-007-01) CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-008-04) The Good Gel Antibacterial Gel Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-010-10) CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-005-03) CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-009-01) CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-003-01) Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-001-01) “Consumers who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should seek immediate treatment, which is critical for potential reversal of toxic effects of methanol poisoning,” the FDA wrote on June 19 . “Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death,” the report indicated. t
  2. If the blood is still visible on the side walk, it might be a good idea, if you can take a few pictures of the attack sight. I hope you get result with the complaint to authorities.. you might also frame your concern, that dog might attack an innocent chld or older prson, if there is not much concern expressed about another dog being injured / killed... which could be a possibility also.
  3. I do not know the current answer.. last I knew it was 2 per person.. BUT, I would find out the current information - if there is a limit of how many animals/dogs that one person can bring into Mexico..
  4. AMEN !!!!! Well said ... A California RN who lives here. A person who will not wear a mask and keep their distance from you, is showing YOU disrespect and cares little about your safety , well-being and health, as well as the community they live in and share with others.
  5. That is why they call it a 'brain bucket ' ...
  6. NBC news update - posted April 1st .. I will make it brief : Mnuchin reverses course, won't force seniors to file tax return for coronavirus stimulus check Americans.April 1, 2020, 8:19 PM CDT / Updated April 1, 2020, 8:33 PM CDT WASHINGTON — The Trump administration backtracked Wednesday evening on new rules for getting stimulus checks, saying Social Security recipients won't have to file a tax return to receive a payment. The move is a response to pressure from elderly Americans and senators to rescind guidance issued Monday that said seniors needed to file a return to get the checks of up to $1,200, even if they weren't ordinarily required to file taxes. "We want to ensure that our senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and low-income Americans receive Economic Impact Payments quickly and without undue burden," said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return need to take no action, and will receive their payment directly to their bank account.” Treasury officials said the IRS will use existing SSA-1099 and RRB-1099 forms to make the payments to seniors. They'll get a direct deposit if there is a bank account on file; otherwise they'll receive a check in the mail. Do some research yourself, as this has been a 'fluid' situation, like everything going on now..
  7. Happy, I totally agree .. IF this was verified information - a true fact should include how the information was obtained and from what person in a responsible postion confirmed the case situation., Certainly the speaker of this information would gladly include all this info including who they are. Unless that is provided, it is an un-verified statement . The medical person, in authority, in the video certainly seems to be a more reliable believeable source, than an anonymous source .
  8. I am a health care professional. If you were ever in the situation 'in the front' lines you would understand the grave concern [ not hysteria ] we have when people willfully ignore health warnings and put others in danger, including those we expect to help us when we are sick. To put it mildly, that pisses me off. Look at Italy as an example..thus far 23 Doctors have died, and approx. 4,824 health workers have been infected by coronavirus, and who knows how many of them will die,, how can hospitals absorb all those sick individuals, and deicisions will have to be made about who gets a ventilator, etc.. To be quite blunt: You can always find a way to fix financial / economic problems, local and global. You can not fix Dead !
  9. To address this .. question : Why is there a run on toilet paper? As far as I have read, diarrhea is not one of the symptoms of the corona virus I was just watching the news at a major station from the East Coast. They were interviewing a physician who was on home 'isolation' awaiting her test results. She said that she started out with Gastro-Intestional symptoms first, and a few days later the body / respiratory sympoms followed. She said that about 50% of the CV cases involve GI symptoms. If GI symptoms are involved, it makes it doubly important to be delligent about good hand-washing.. otherwise you will be dealing with an E.Coli infection and the CV infection. They asked her if she had taken care of any + CV cases or person presenting with CV symptoms, she said No !

  11. There have been some recent news reports about the effectiveness of checking a person's termperature as they de-board / board a plane. . The opinon at this time, is that is is NOT an effective screening tool. This is a very brief summary of those statememts: While the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has screened more than 30,000 passengers in the past month, not a single US coronavirus case has been caught by airport temperature checks, according to a CNN investigation . Earlier this month, British researchers published a study showing that temperature checks will fail to detect a coronavirus infection nearly half the time. At least one country has found airport temperature checks so unhelpful that it decided not to do them during the novel coronavirus outbreak. Israel used them in previous years for Ebola, SARS and H1N1, but found that they didn't work. "It is ineffective and inefficient," said Dr. Itamar Grotto, associate director general of Israel's Ministry of Health. Grotto said the problem is that a normal temperature gives "false assurance." Passengers with normal temperatures could still be in the incubation period, which means they're infected, but have yet to develop a fever. In addition, a small number of patients with the novel coronavirus don't have fever, according to published studies. Some experts are convinced that for these reasons, temperature checks at airports are useless. "I don't think airport temperature checks have any major effect on stopping or even slowing down transmission," said Michael Osterholm, an epidemiologist and professor at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. "We just don't have any good data to support that."
  12. I understand your feeling of " more needs to be done ".. It comes down to reality and economics .. it costs money. The medicines for the surgery are not cheap .. suture material costs $, and etc ... You also have to have the people volunteers, to inform people about the clinics, staff the clinics themselves, etc.. If you have a certain amount of donated money, that equals a certain number of surgeries that can be done. Hard cruel facts ...
  13. There are two separate sterlization organizations in place, one for each seperate municipality- Chapala and Joco. For Chapala is: Operacion Amor, and for Joco is: Tails of Mexico. The only 'divison' for this sterlization service is the boundry of the municipality, not the name of the city - township within the municipality. If you have been here for a while, you will see the difference of how things looked in the cat and dogs populations as compared to a few years ago. These two groups are totally funded by donations and fund raising events, and staffed by volunteers and paid Vets who specialize in sterilzation surgeries, etc... The programs are limited by the amount of donation funding, which impacts / determines how many sterlizations clinics can be done as well as how many surgieries can be accomplished. The other factor is how many people volunteer to participate in the programs. There are educational components associated with each organization - care and respect of pets, the need /purpose of sterilzations, etc.. Those who have been here for a while, and involved in the organizations in varying degrees have seen that over time this educational portion of each organization has shown slow but positive increments of success ... ... there have been more male dogs and cats bringing brought into these clinics for surgeries than is past years.. So yes, organize the feeding program , but also help the groups that need and appreciate your financial support to continue to do this needed service for Mexican Nationals of limited financial means, who do love and care about their pets , but have limited physical access or financial access to a Vet for this type of pet care.
  14. I saw this article, and discussed it with a few people who are involved with animals rescue, sterilizations clinics, and etc.. thought it was a noble idea.. However, more than one person mentioned that in past years about unknown SOBs who have put out poison randomly ..[ they were not caught as far as I am aware ] and this might give them a greater opportunity to carry out their hateful sadistic acts.. I am not being negative in saying this or bringing this up , but there needs to be some kind of safeguards for the protection of the dogs eating at these feeding stations.
