The origin and meaning of the phrase, "a new lease on life" dates back to the early 1800s; and it referred to recovering from an illness and getting a fresh start with renewed enjoyment, enthusiasm, and appreciation for one's life. Epidemics that were probably influenza in their nature, have been reported throughout recorded history. Four major influenza epidemics were recorded between 1830 and 1848. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet’s population.
Unfortunately, today's pandemic and potentially future pandemics will still have some of the same serious consequences, but at the same time we are all better prepared to fight these viruses with the same tried and true health and safety methods, plus with some new and scientifically proven safeguards.
Therefore, we all need to keep up our guards for this long and tough fight, with proper handwashing, sanitizing, social distancing, masking, personal protective equipment, ventilation and vaccines, to help protect ourselves, the children, the most vulnerable and the most essential workers in this battle that is everybody's business.
Finally, to help win all tough fights and battles, we need to know our opponents strengths and plans of attack. In the case of these pandemics, their battle plan is viral and respiratory, with it's deadliest attacks on our lungs, that will weaken the rest of our body's functions. As a result, the best offenses and defenses we have against this pandemic, are to provide clean, fresh and healthy air to our lungs, while protecting our lungs from any harmful viral and respiratory attacks, including radon, methane, mold and carbon monoxide.
Com'on America, let's keep up the good fight together and never give-up the fight forever, where we live, work, learn, play, eat and sleep.
