I'm in a sauna nearly every day. It's relatively easy to round up Vodka still since liquor stores have been considered "essential services" around here.
Belarus here we come...

Coronavirus: Belarus president refuses to cancel anything - and says vodka and saunas will ward off COVID-19
Professional football has ground to a halt around the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, with one notable exception.

COVID-19Coronavirus

Few measures have been enforced to curb coronavirus in Belarus - instead, people are being urged to drink vodka and go to saunas.

The country - specifically its president - has shrugged off concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, starkly illustrated on Sunday with the nation's football matches continuing as normal.

As most countries enforce strict measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, fans continued to shuffle into football grounds as they would any other weekend.

Few social distancing measures appear to be in force, but spectators at some grounds did have their temperatures checked before being granted entry.

A small number of fans opted to wear face masks while huddled together in packed stands, but they were few and far between.

Belarusian football organisers have said they have no intention of postponing matches or cancelling the season - and the country's leader has also shown that he is keen for sporting fixtures to continue.

President Alexander Lukashenko took part in an ice hockey match on Saturday - controversially declaring that sport "is the best anti-virus remedy".

People always tend to think their cultural traditions will work best for whatever it is.

I agree about the sauna but not the vodka. Saunas and hot tubs can induce a fever and fight an illness. I have used them to (what I believe) cure colds. I jump in a 113 degree hot tub, sit until my body temp reads about 104 degrees, hold it until I start to fever hallucinate while drinking about 2 liters of water. and then get out, take a tylenol and go to bed.

So this means if I died of corona virus my wife will find my body in the hot tub.

A few studies show saunas reduce a LOT of different ailments.

That settles it then.

I am hoping big gold medallions can cure stuff as well.

Aren't you supposed to get flogged by babushkas with birch faggots during the sauna?
