Tales from the COVID-19 Frontline

Bio-One OKC is a crime and trauma scene cleaning company. We remediate the aftermath of suicides, unattended deaths and other unfortunate occurrences.  As a result we deal with bodily fluids containing many pathogens including blood born pathogens such as HIV, MRSA, hepatitis B among others. We have chemicals that will kill these infectious agents and other viruses as well. So when we were called out to do a coronavirus disinfection in a home we were happy to help.

When we met the couple they had just arrived home from the hospital after spending 14 days there. This was in addition to the week they spent at home prior to calling for help. As we discussed the services to be rendered I realized that speaking for this gentleman was quite laborious. In fact, he could barely get through a sentence before he would have to sit down and catch his breath. As a dental hygienist I have many patients with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) who have difficulty speaking for a lack of air. I have never in 23 years of practice seen anything like this. It was shocking to me to see how effectively COVID-19 robs one of their ability to breathe.

Needless to say, you do not want to catch this. It is serious. It lingers and is life changing. Please be careful, wear your masks, and do not endanger the at risk people in your lives. While it’s bad enough if you get it, it is so much worse if you infect a loved one or a friend.
