Rick Pointer, a friend who attended church with me in high school, just died from Covid. Positive test. Fact.

From Dr. Fauci.

“Chickenpox is a virus. Lots of people have had it, and probably don't think about it much once the initial illness has passed. But it stays in your body and lives there forever, and maybe when you're older, you have debilitatingly painful outbreaks of shingles. You don't just get over this virus in a few weeks, never to have another health effect. We know this because it's been around for years, and has been studied medically for years.

Herpes is also a virus. And once someone has it, it stays in your body and lives there forever, and anytime they get a little run down or stressed-out they're going to have an outbreak. Maybe every time you have a big event coming up (school pictures, job interview, big date) you're going to get a cold sore. For the rest of your life. You don't just get over it in a few weeks. We know this because it's been around for years, and been studied medically for years.

HIV is a virus. It attacks the immune system and makes the carrier far more vulnerable to other illnesses. It has a list of symptoms and negative health impacts that goes on and on. It was decades before viable treatments were developed that allowed people to live with a reasonable quality of life. Once you have it, it lives in your body forever and there is no cure. Over time, that takes a toll on the body, putting people living with HIV at greater risk for health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, diabetes, bone disease, liver disease, cognitive disorders, and some types of cancer. We know this because it has been around for years, and had been studied medically for years.

Now with COVID-19, we have a novel virus that spreads rapidly and easily. The full spectrum of symptoms and health effects is only just beginning to be cataloged, much less understood.
So far the symptoms may include:
Fever
Fatigue
Coughing
Pneumonia
Chills/Trembling
Acute respiratory distress
Lung damage (potentially permanent)
Loss of taste (a neurological symptom)
Sore throat
Headaches
Difficulty breathing
Mental confusion
Diarrhea
Nausea or vomiting
Loss of appetite
Strokes have also been reported in some people who have COVID-19 (even in the relatively young)
Swollen eyes
Blood clots
Seizures
Liver damage
Kidney damage
Rash
COVID toes (weird, right?)
People testing positive for COVID-19 have been documented to be sick even after 60 days. Many people are sick for weeks, get better, and then experience a rapid and sudden flare up and get sick all over again. A man in Seattle was hospitalized for 62 days, and while well enough to be released, still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Not to mention a $1.1 million medical bill.
Then there is MIS-C. Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. Children with MIS-C may have a fever and various symptoms, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes, or feeling extra tired. While rare, it has caused deaths.

This disease has not been around for years. It has basically been 6 months. No one knows yet the long-term health effects, or how it may present itself years down the road for people who have been exposed. We literally *do not know* what we do not know.

For those in our society who suggest that people being cautious are cowards, for people who refuse to take even the simplest of precautions to protect themselves and those around them, I want to ask, without hyperbole and in all sincerity:
How dare you?
How dare you risk the lives of others so cavalierly. How dare you decide for others that they should welcome exposure as "getting it over with", when literally no one knows who will be the lucky "mild symptoms" case, and who may fall ill and die. Because while we know that some people are more susceptible to suffering a more serious case, we also know that 20 and 30-year-olds have died, marathon runners and fitness nuts have died, children and infants have died.

How dare you behave as though you know more than medical experts, when those same experts acknowledge that there is so much we don't yet know, but with what we DO know, are smart enough to be scared of how easily this is spread, and recommend baseline precautions such as:
Frequent hand-washing
Physical distancing
Reduced social/public contact or interaction
Mask wearing
Covering your cough or sneeze
Avoiding touching your face
Sanitizing frequently touched surfaces
The more things we can all do to mitigate our risk of exposure, the better off we all are, in my opinion. Not only does it flatten the curve and allow health care providers to maintain levels of service that aren't immediately and catastrophically overwhelmed; it also reduces unnecessary suffering and deaths, and buys time for the scientific community to study the virus in order to come to a more full understanding of the breadth of its impacts in both the short and long term.
I reject the notion that it's "just a virus" and we'll all get it eventually. What a careless, lazy, heartless stance.”

Congratulations to our Naming Contest Winner, Jordan J. Palik!
In addition to winning our grand prize with the name "Blue Prosperity Micronesia", Jordan also agreed to an interview about his connection to the ocean and his hopes for the future.

1.Tell us about yourself.
"I am a citizen of the Federated States of Micronesia, born on the island of Pohnpei. My father is Johnston Palik and my mother are Augustan R. Palik. I grew up in Pohnpei and Kosrae during my pupil year. I graduated from Nett Elementary School and further my education to Guam at George Washington High School. I graduated from the GWHS and continue to pursue my education at Guam Community College (on a break at the moment). Now that I am working full time in the Tourism Industry and private sector, I find it somewhat challenging and I'm experiencing what the real world really is. Life here is very tough now that the pandemic had swept on island. Nothing conquers hardships and obstacles other than hard work! Once I save up for college, I will definitely go back and resume my education as soon as the novel Coronavirus Covid-19 is containing."

2. You have mentioned that you do community service in Guam. Tell us more:
"It’s been two months I have been helping our FSM homeless brothers and sisters from all the islands states that are struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. I volunteered to give hand to purchase and deliver food and beverages to my neighbors and the homeless during the lockdown. I've been doing this for a month and a half. I work for no organization - this is an independent activity and I'm seeking no recognition. I wanted to help the unfortunate and people in the Community. I'm just helping where there is need."

3. What does the program name mean to you?
"The Blue Prosperity Coalition (BPC) is a very important program. To me it is a wakeup call for all of us Micronesians. Our oceans, reefs, shores, depths of the oceans shall be safeguarded by all of us. I have seen the news and other media exposing the places that are heavily polluted. Also, poorly regulated or careless reef dredging has a major impact on marine life. It is so sad to see these awful activities left unchecked. This program could better educate us about the importance of the ocean. It will play a key role in nourishment and protection to our environment. There is no escaping the fact that our coastal and reefs are deteriorating and lagging in safety and protection. I hope that this joint venture between Blue Prosperity Micronesia members, Waitt Institute, National Geographic Ocean, Micronesia Conservation Trust, Oceans 5, and the FSM government and the island state governments continues to grow stronger in developing a Marine Spatial Plan to enable us all benefit from it and our future generations as well. We are blessed by our Almighty Lord. I would like to thank the Office of the President, Federated States of Micronesia, Congress and all the good leaders who involved in this great program. This is an excellent program that was initiated by His Excellency, the Honorable FSM President Panuelo. Our Blue Prosperity Micronesia must continue to be preserved and protected by the FSM government, United States government, and the United Nations. "

4. What does the Ocean mean to you?
"I am an Ocean lover and the Ocean is a source of food and it provides oxygen and rain. It means a lot of different great things to me and people, depending on where people live. Some people, there is a peacefulness that comes from watching the ocean. You see an ocean of dark blue sea - it means that your subconscious reflects your unconscious desires. And for me it is a place of enjoyment, gathering of family and friends, and there is much more than that as I grew mature. Most importantly, the ocean is a very vital and precious for us all. In theory, we can survive without the modern amenities of today by living off the land and the ocean. We, the Pacific Islanders, depend on ocean marine resources with our lives."

Thank you, Jordan, for naming this program and for your continued dedication to a brighter future for all!

COVID - 19 Pandemic Survey

June 19, 2020 - A group of young people convened at L5 Hotel to participate in a Pacific regional youth survey funded by the United Nations Population Fund - UNFPA in collaboration with Chuuk Youth Council - C*C. This survey, seeks to capture the insights of young people within the age group of 15 - 24 on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their lives.

Initially, this statistical research was disseminated to Pacific youth counterparts through an online platform. However, given the limited internet access in the Federated States of Micronesia - FSM especially in the state of Chuuk where many places still lack connectivity, an exception to conduct an offline survey was made necessary. Another compelling point on C*C’s part, is the need to gather survey participants at one place within one day as the action and reporting timeline was less than a week.

Over 1 thousand USD was approved and given to C*C to organize and implement this plan. After further deliberations, officers agreed to provide incentives in the form of transport fees and refreshments to survey takers.
