DZL Records Brings Covid 19 Awareness On Starr Dane, Dale Virgo, & Scantana Featured, “State Of Emergency”
The Coronavirus, also known as “Covid 19”, has been a headliner on every news story for most of this year, and has changed the way the world is running right now. With the numbers of positive cases increasing, many have been exercising various methods to flatten its curve, and promote a safer world. Sadly, not many adhere to what is being promoted. To play a part in spreading awareness, Jamaica’s DZL Records makes a statement with, “State Of Emergency”.
Teaming up with Recording Artistes Scantana and Starr Dane, and the Label’s Producer Dale “Dizzle” Virgo, the song starts off with Starr Dane chanting the line, “Urgency, urgency” to get your attention with what’s going on in the world. Promoting proper sanitization, the practice of Social Distancing and the wearing of masks, Starr Dane also makes listeners aware of the consequences of not following protocol issued by the Government of Jamaica, and the Ministry of Health. Dale Virgo who not only produced the track, joins Scantana as they skillfully lent their vocals to further drive home the message. The song features samples of various Jamaican news reports and a speech by the Prime Minister Andrew Holness covering the Covid 19 pandemic.

Important Information Regarding Coronavirus and Myths Below
FACT: Studies show hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19
Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, a treatment for malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis, has been under study as a possible treatment for COVID-19. Current data shows that this drug does not reduce deaths among hospitalised COVID-19 patients, nor help people with moderate disease.*
The use of hydoxychloroquine and chloroquine is accepted as generally safe for patients with malaria and autoimmune diseases, but its use where not indicated and without medical supervision can cause serious side effects and should be avoided.
* More decisive research is needed to assess its value in patients with mild disease or as pre- or post-exposure prophylaxis in patients exposed to COVID-19.
FACT: People should NOT wear masks while exercising
People should NOT wear masks when exercising, as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably.
Sweat can make the mask become wet more quickly which makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of microorganisms. The important preventive measure during exercise is to maintain physical distance of at least one meter from others.
FACT: The likelihood of shoes spreading COVID-19 is very low
The likelihood of COVID-19 being spread on shoes and infecting individuals is very low. As a precautionary measure, particularly in homes where infants and small children crawl or play on floors, consider leaving your shoes at the entrance of your home. This will help prevent contact with dirt or any waste that could be carried on the soles of shoes.
FACT: The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by a virus, NOT by bacteria
The virus that causes COVID-19 is in a family of viruses called Coronaviridae. Antibiotics do not work against viruses.
Some people who become ill with COVID-19 can also develop a bacterial infection as a complication. In this case, antibiotics may be recommended by a health care provider.
There is currently no licensed medication to cure COVID-19. If you have symptoms, call your health care provider or COVID-19 hotline for assistance.
FACT: Most people who get COVID-19 recover from it
Most people who get COVID-19 have mild or moderate symptoms and can recover thanks to supportive care. If you have a cough, fever and difficulty breathing seek medical care early - call your health facility by telephone first. If you have fever and live in an area with malaria or dengue seek medical care immediately.
FACT: Drinking alcohol does not protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous
The harmful use of alcohol increases your risk of health problems.
FACT: Thermal scanners CANNOT detect COVID-19
Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature). They cannot detect people who are infected with COVID-19. There are many causes of fever. Call your healthcare provider if you need assistance or seek immediate medical care if you have fever and live in an area with malaria or dengue.
