My younger sister is a Doctor in Internal Medicine and she works in the ICU in Sweden. She’s in the Covid -19 war zone. She takes care of Covid-19 patients daily. She told me they are reaching their capacity now as I am writing this. They are also running out of protection gear for doctors and nurses. She told me that during the last few days she has been responsible for three Covid-19 patients. One man born in 1982, with no previous health issues, one man born in 1950, with no previous health issues and one older lady born in 1930, with no previous health issues – all of them have received treatment in the ICU. The man born 1982 and the man born in 1950, died yesterday.. The old lady walked out of the hospital to go home the same day.

 

The Covid-19 virus is relentless. It does not favour or choose you over me. It does not pick rich over poor or black over white. The virus will get to all of us. Eventually. And yes we know that if you are not in the “chronic illness bucket” (currently 83% Covid-19 cases) you are less likely to get severely sick or die from it. But as my sister said “the other 14% that are not suffering from chronic illness, that still die because of this virus – that’s a huge amount of people”.  “We see that every day and we know that the virus is very unpredictable”

 

A doctor that I work with here in the US told me that they will introduce point system starting this week at the hospitals. Meaning that on a scale used by doctors to determine illness, patients with higher chance of survival will be prioritised. Your score will determine if you get a ventilator or not. They don’t have enough ventilators for everyone.

 

The total collapse of our healthcare system all over the world is a brutal but oh so real slap in the face. The fact that healthcare is financially driven to the point that we cannot care for our people and protect our doctors during a pandemic where we need it the most, reveals how fragile and shitty the system is. 

 

We NEED UNIVERSAL HEALTCARE that is NOT financially driven. We need our research programs and healthcare programs to stand independent of politics and other big pharmaceutical companies. We need universal healthcare for everyone. Everywhere. We need communities that take care of each other. 

 

I have spent two, almost three weeks trying to take care of a virus infection that we have dealt with, including my children – we are now on the mend. We know it’s not Covid-19 as we got tested for it and it was negative. But before I knew we had a “good” old bacterial infection and not Covid-19, I was panicked and dealt with massive anxiety daily. I wouldn’t have been as worried if I knew we had a health care system that I could trust. If we know we are safe, supported and with a care system that is ready when we need it – I know my anxiety would have been much less.

 

Stay well people. And support our hospitals. Skip the “hero appraisals ” and do something about it and donate what you can to make a change.

And so another week of physical separation and online training comes to a close. It was great to see so many of you in the live stream classes this week and in response to your feedback we are adding a weekday 6PM Live Stream beginning Monday. This week, Coach Matt will be leading the 6PM Live Stream class. You may see some familiar faces in the 6PM class, including Coach Jen and Andy & Maggie – all at appropriate social distances. Thursday night’s Live Stream & Chill was a big success and we will continue to add more of those classes as well. You can chill with Coach Diz on Mondays, Coach Matt on Wednesdays, and Coach Shirley on Fridays. 

 

So guys, this is the situation for now – but probably not forever. Maybe it isn’t ideal, but we can still connect. We can still play. And we can still grow. We just can’t do it while touching each other.

Life or Economy? Does it have to be one or the other?

The fear is real. Fear of getting sick and overcrowded hospitals that won’t be able to take care of us if it is necessary. The fear of receiving information that a loved one is sick and worst case scenario –  leave us for the angels.. 

 

On the other hand,  every day there is the reminder that our society is closed down. I spoke to a good friend of mine in Norway and she told me that the government have imposed strict rules for every citizen. You are not allowed to leave your residential area, which means you cannot even travel or drive to your summer home or winter cabin, even if it is located in the same state.  Police and military will stop anyone trying to get across the border. No-one comes in, no-one gets out. The freedom of movement we took for granted is gone. And we don’t even know if this is the right way to control the pandemic. 

 

Then we have strong voices arguing that the economy must be saved. I am not saying that those opinions are not true. That we need to weigh sickness/death vs. the greater global economy. But I am questioning – does it have to be one or the other? Economy or lives? I don’t know, but what I do know is that we have taken it all for granted. Our health, economy, globalisation and freedom of movement.  

 

Health is more important than ever. The resilient and healthy will stand after this pandemic. the sick will die. We still have the freedom to move – even though only in our backyard or living room. Please do that folks. Move your body. Get your heart rate up. Do your breath work for recovery. Get resilient. We have a choice to stand up for our health so we can go to work when it is time and to help the sick that is in need.

Additionally, we are archiving the live workouts and providing yoga and breathwork videos here. I would love to have more of you guys join us for the live workouts and I believe we will soon be rolling out live Zoom classes in the mornings and potentially evenings as well (will update you when I know more). In the meantime, if you would like to check out a kettlebell or a pair of dumbbells from the gym so that you can participate in weighted workouts at home, please contact your primary coach as soon as possible.
