I like your proactive approach, what I challenge you with, is your trust in a pharmacological solution. There is absolutely nothing better than a HEALTHY body for combating any disease. There will always be exceptions but if hypertension, diabetes, et al are minimized due to exercise, a non-bad diet (a good diet is always better) and staying away from processed foods especially refined sugar... we will be in great shape.

I am not a fan of vaccines. If a vaccine were provided and I had the capability of recovering damage if harmed... then I might consider that option if my situation were dire. Currently, all manufacturers of vaccines are protected from litigation due to our Supreme Court.

42 U.S. Code § 300aa–22. Standards of responsibility


I am sorry you had to experience this malady. Many people have focused on the wet markets and rightfully so but we are not taking notice of our exposure to this type of environment in the United States. Visit a slaughterhouse, visit a poultry farm, or where eggs are harvested... it is a bastion for infections. What is even scarier than seeing this mess is that our government and various pharmaceutical companies are collecting eggs for purposes of vaccines. Egg vaccines will not work on a Coronavirus but it does have success for the flu.
You make it sound like a easter egg hunt for science. Which I would have loved when I was little.

The thing is, we don't yet know how we need to manufacture a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. We can't have it in multi use vials becausee Karens in the US don't know that they don't use the harmless mercury compound anymore. All vaccines in the US have been single use for a while, but we may have to change that because we don't have enough vials to give vaccines to everyojne in the country in one fell swoop. We manufacture Flu vaccines using eggs, we might manufacture them with eggs for SARS-CoV-2.

Pharmacological cures are all we have to truly wipe this out. There will always be those vulnerable and unable to combat a virus, and it is our duty as fellow humans to help keep them safe. I am extremly lucky that my Grandparents have surrvived for as long as they have, and quite heathily at that. But I don't want to lose them because someone didn't get a stupid vaccine.

You are fortunate with your grandparents, I hope they continue to prosper. Vaccines are a mute point anyway. If the government wishes for all of us to be vaccinated, there is absolutely nothing that anybody can do about it, plain and simple. The laws allows our government to vaccinate anybody and everybody if it is declared to be for the betterment of the whole.

So the main cause of death during this outbreak is not the virus but what it leads to, Pneumonia. But there is a Vaccine against Pneumonia, addmittedly it comes in 2 parts 12 months apart but part 1 protects against the most prevelent and dangerous forms. So far I have heard no mention of this, I would have thought this would be a major line of defence especially for the most vulnerable.
The lung damage is initially autoimmune with the body attacking the lung tissue.
this injury and associated immune deficiency opens the lungs to a secondary infection.
the pneumonia vaccines are active only against a couple of bugs. they also take a too long to become infective. there are many bacteria that can cause pneumonia, these have no vaccines and antibiotics cant work if the body is too beaten up (low oxygen levels, impaired circulation , etc)
Michael F. Holick, MD, PhD, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, and leading authority on vitamin D, writes:

"Most children and adults are vitamin D deficient in the winter. Essentially no vitamin D can be made from sun exposure during the months of November through March if you live above or below 35 degrees latitude (e.g. Busan, S. Korea, Xi'an, China, Atlanta, USA or Malaga, Spain).

It has been suggested that there is a seasonal stimulus for developing viral infections such as the flu during the winter time. At the time of the peak flu season in the winter is at exactly the same time a person's vitamin D status [blood level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D] is at its lowest level. Vitamin D plays an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system and therefore winter-associated vitamin D deficiency can weaken the immune system increasing the risk of developing viral infections that cause upper respiratory tract infections. There is evidence that adequate levels of vitamin D during the winter can result in a reduction in the incidence of influenza A and in other viral illnesses of the respiratory tract.

Given the newness of the coronavirus (COVID-19), no research has studied how vitamin D levels might be associated with the incidence or severity of a coronavirus infection. However, at this time I believe it is prudent to make sure everyone has adequate vitamin D levels."

Ernest T. Armstrong, inventor of the vitamin D promoting sunscreen Solar D® (solar-d.com), writes: "All countries worst hit by COVID-19 are northern, wintertime countries or countries where people get very little sunshine and therefore make very little vitamin D in their skin. If the COVID-19 acts similar to other known seasonal viruses, then in the spring as the sun climbs higher in the sky, people will make more vitamin D, immune-system suppression will lessen, and the number of new cases of COVID-19 will fall dramatically."
Brazil is experiencing a terrible covid epidemic
plenty of sun there
vit D can't be implicated there
if children are so vit d deficient why do they not get sick?

WHO said its not transmitted via droplets; masks not necessary
oops, they reversed and now says masks are good
WHO is too much influenced by China and lesser developed nations.

I am reasonably well educated in things viral and keep up-to-date regarding pathogens of fish including viruses. Certain amount of a population will be more resistant and some less so. Some may become latent carriers of the virus while others may die. The risk of dying from this virus is very low. Warmer weather can help people fight illness. Vitamin D is essential for proper functioning of the immune system (Aranow 2011).

I've just been to the supermarket and the shelves were practically empty. People were terrified and there was an atmosphere of impending doom. Worrying can negatively affect immunity so keep calm (Segerstrom, & Miller 2004). Let it go…

It is not difficult to predict the outcome. This will playout like all other pandemics. The virus will become endemic in the population. No one will escape being exposed unless they leave for planet Mars. The time and place will come. Recall Norovirus. A 24-hour stomach bug. Everyone got exposed to that, vomited for 24 hours then went about their business. It is still present within the population. Babies will eventually catch it, like they will chicken pox, and like adults, will have the same symptoms. As the years pass, the symptoms of this virus will become milder (Harper et al. 2016).

If this kills you, you’ve been very unlucky but there is nothing anyone can now do. The cat is out of the bag. Everyone is powerless over the outcome. Observe good hygiene, be sensible. Look after your health. Avoid excesses in anything. Enjoy the time you have left albeit decades or days. Worrying will make you more susceptible (Segerstrom, & Miller 2004). Hiding will not save you.

Selfishly hoarding supermarket supplies, hand sanitiser and soap may kill some vulnerable people who need them. Are we four-year olds in long trousers who just look after number one, or are we compassionate adults? The jury is out…

The best of luck to you all

After nine months of the pandemic 0.3% of the World’s population has at some stage been reported as infected with covid-19. Assuming a recovery period of 14-days, on average at any given time over the last nine months 0.016% of the World’s population would have been actively infected. As a comparison this is a direct quote from the NIH “Estimates of the international prevalence of schizophrenia among non-institutionalized persons is 0.33% to 0.75%”. Schizophrenia alone is up to 46 times more prevalent than covid-19. The virus has been linked to 0.01036% of the population dying worldwide over this period, approximately 3000 people per day. This represents about 2% of the global daily death rate from all causes of death.

So, are your numbers soley reflective of positive tests, or do they attempt to extrapolate actual number of infected as opposed to positive test results? Just an order of magnitude or 2 difference. I'm guessing you're running on test results.

I like this guy who says everyone will get it. Pretty sure my untested ass ace2d it with Mary a sniffle. Professional panhandler who is hated by many in power and authority or formerly in authority thanks to me. Number 1 candidate for waking up suddenly lobotomized or not waking up; having exposed the whole of psychiatry as a murderous fraud run by Borderline Personalities with Covert Narcissistic Personality Features has a downside in that the worst psychopaths on the planet are trying to come up with a horrifying fate worse than death they can subject me to for having their fun torture toys taken from them.

Covidbis very survivable for a person who avoids basically every avoidable health hazard,band knows his way around methods be of stimulating immunity effectively without exciting cytokine storms. When talking about debunking myth, the most dangerous is promulgated by pharma and those under it's carrot and stick, funding and assassination spell. We have our ways.... Which are mainly on the pharma hit-list and therefore unspeakable on this forum.
Anyway...the short version is that despite all, most of us will survive this. We will the succumb to political, military and environmental disasters, most likely... but we will be survive this.

In my home, "Socialist" Denmark, with "free" (taxpaid for) hospitals and doctors, senior citizens are offered a free vacination against a possible flu/lung infection! This may help prevent a severe Covid19 crisis, which is now down to less than one infected person for each known person with Covid19, so it will end here, at one time!

There has been some statements that getting the flu vaccine is beneficial, but I think it may just be in that people will be less likely to get a severe flu with the yearly vaccine, but as more studies are done, if it turns out to have more benefits, even better.

I got my flu vaccine for this year a little while ago, since I like to be cautious anyway.

There have been questions regarding the coming spring season and if warming temperatures will kill off the coronavirus. While historically, viruses do tend to spread more slowly in warmer weather, we won't know the full scope of change that will happen with COVID-19 yet.

Sources on this are plentiful, but a few include.
Do you believe that covid 19 is accurate when new info traces the disease to a bat disease in a Chinese mine in 2012? Leaving at least 6 years for research and manipulation as a weapon of terror?

Are you aware that the flu vaccine for this year protects you for the flu of last year and not the new strains of this and next year?

This thread died on March 20, 2020 because of many misunderstood facts about Covid-19 at the time. Still, there was some sound advice given about human health.

Without the benefit of any formal medical training (BSc. Chem w/ some biochem) I can't argue all the points now known about the "pandemic", but I do know enough about the scientific method to strongly question the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that the World Health Organization demanded be given on a global basis. That initiative was bogus. The PCR test has some valid uses, but Covid-19 testing isn't one of them.

The fact that everything about Covid-19 control has been reduced to just "get vaccinated" if and when such a vaccine is put forward. Viruses mutate, vaccine manufacture and distribution will always be behind the curve.
Then there is the ridiculously insane level of fear mongering in the mainstream (a very kind adjective) media. Nothing in a global vaccination program, wearing masks, or listening to incessant fear messaging will correlate with real world, scientific facts.

Our species has the autoimmune tools to protect those capable of self-preservation who also practice common sense hygiene and dietary regimens. Those less fortunate, be they elderly, with a pre-existing comorbidity, or a suppressed immune system, will always be at risk for an upper respiratory infection. It's been that way with each and every "normal" annual flu. The statistics on Covid-19, as inflated as they have been made, are no better or worse than any normal annual flu in recent memory. There were no "pandemic" scares during any of those years.

Glad to see intelligent people capable of seeing outside of what the TV and society tells us to echo mindlessly. You might be interested in the true cause of the COVID shutdown. Powerful people are panicking due to an event called a grand solar minimum. This kind of thing causes world wide flooding much cooler temperatures which results in crop losses from excess moisture, insect infestations and random cold spells. This is the true cause of the world wide shut down. Youtube adapt 2030 and suspicious observers they cover it well.

Sars-Cov-2 is not novel, but merely a mutation, meaning that it has elements in common with previous viri. The fact that there are similarities and the antibodies in your body recognise those similarities, means that there is a base immunity in the population against any virus that looks similar to Sars-Cov-2.

Our T-cells (white blood cells) can detect common structures appearing on Sars-Cov-2 and regular cold viri and therefore combat both of them. The PCR test method attracts and then amplifies any detected nucleotide chain debris (up to 35X to make it visible) and this in itself distorts the findings. This amounts to reverse chemical engineering of the fragments to better identify the original.

The PCR tests cannot distinguish between a virus that is alive and one that has already been killed by their immune system and therefore a positive result does not necessarily mean that the "positive" person can infect others. A PCR test definitely does not identify an existing "hot" infection, where a virus has penetrated a human cell and started to replicate itself.

If a person's immune system has already destroyed the virus (but has left some bits of its DNA debris) then they are not infectious, but they are currently still designated as an "active case". This suggests that "positive" patients are not really sick, but rather, they are immune. These false positives are driving media hype and the unnecessary lockdown measures.

The PCR tests cannot distinguish between a virus that is alive and one that has already been killed by a person's immune system and therefore a positive result does not necessarily mean that the "positive" person can infect others.

If a person's immune system has already destroyed the virus (but has left some bits of its DNA debris) then they are not infectious, but they are currently still designated as an "active case". This suggests that a statistically significant number of "positive" patients are not really sick, but rather, they are immune. These false positives are driving media hype and the unnecessary lockdown measures. So why is the science not better explained? Cui bono?

PCR usefulness is to highlight when somebody may pose a risk of further transmission, and so to prompt a period of quarantine (usually 14 days), after which such person will in most instances no longer be infectious. Such a person, if not infectious, will have been infectious at some point recently, and so will have been an active case; I would not consider this to be the definition of false positive. I think testing can be considered an important tool to help break transmission chains, and if isolation is properly observed, help to lower circulation of the virus. Assuming the tests are designed with high sensitivity and specificity for sars-cov-2, genetic similarities with other common cold coronaviruses should not cause an issue.

Just to clarify, we're talking about a flu virus here, and not the Bubonic plague bacterium or Ebola virus, for example. I would like to stress the significance of this with the most recent statistics I could find (to a suitable degree of precision):

World population (est. June, 2020): 7,577,000,000
World Covid-19 reported infections (however skewed): 38,545,000 (0.51% World population)
World Covid-19 reported deaths (however skewed): 1,093,000 (2.83% reported infections)

The results, however much they are overstated, do not appear to be better or worse than those for any normal annual flu. The majority of the deaths are for aged patients suffering from at least one comorbitity, and who consequently had a compromised immune system to start with. This is also consistent with prior "normal" flu seasons.

The "original" virus itself will have run its course many months ago, and will have since mutated. The general worldwide population will also be acheiving herd immunity by now, and lots of nucleotide debris will be found in bloodstreams and mucous - which the PCR test will dutifully record as "positive". However, the transmission chain will be broken in the same manner that all the other bouts of flu have been.

Viral shedding such that it can be detected by pcr, has been reported to last for around 20 days in most cases for respiratory tract samples. As mentioned, a positive sample returned even at the tail end of this timeframe indicates a recently acquired infection, and so self-isolation would be advisable so as to minimise possibilty of onward transmission. Thus pcr testing for sars-cov-2 is a valuable tool for identifying individuals who may be at risk of spreading the virus whether or not they are actually still infectious.

If the argument is that the severity of disease upon infection is such that testing is unneccesary and that the virus will soon run its course based on a belief of near global herd immunity, then I would regard that as an opinion, and as such, are entitled to express without need for further explanation.

The statistical insignifcance of this flu on a year-over-year basis doesn't warrant this type of testing, which, anyway, amounts to a post mortem. Serology would be more to the point, as it would reveal actual active antibodies in the serum. I remain mystified as to why this particular flu receives so much attention.

The referenced article says more than I ccould ever hope to point out about PCR testing. The science of testing is thoroughly discussed (use the URL at the bottom).

"So how can it be that those who claim the PCR tests are highly meaningful for so-called COVID-19 diagnosis blind out the fundamental inadequacies of these tests—even if they are confronted with questions regarding their validity?

Certainly, the apologists of the novel coronavirus hypothesis should have dealt with these questions before throwing the tests on the market and putting basically the whole world under lockdown, not least because these are questions that come to mind immediately for anyone with even a spark of scientific understanding."

- excerpted from COVID19 PCR Tests Are Scientifically Meaningless by Torsten Engelbrecht and Konstantin Demeter

@hellopunyhumans

I am like yourself asking that same question why is this virus getting so much attention

The only sense I can make of this virus is that it effects the human genome at the molecular level with that been said I would have to say a vaccine would not do much good . Could someone expand on this concept a little more I am not any way near an expert in any field .

Hey all,

Due to an abundance of posts touting natural remedies, DIY cures, and generally dangerous misinformation about the coronavirus, the Community Team thought it would be a good idea to collect all of these into a single spot.

This thread is intended to debunk COVID-19 myths, hoaxes, untested suppositions, and any other claims that are "too good to be true."

First things first, there is currently no medically approved cure or vaccine for coronavirus, period.

There are many groups and institutions working to find it, but these things take time. When people are afraid, they are more likely to try things that are risky or untested, so we will not allow posts that claim to be a cure to remain in our forums.

In this thread we'd like to hear any suspicious information that you've heard here, or elsewhere. This is not to continue the spread of questionable info, but so we can engage with the community to provide verifiable data to the contrary of these claims.

We encourage all of our LiveScience forum experts to contribute their knowledge to this thread. Please make sure to cite from a secondary or primary source when debunking a hoax. With a herd mentality and the exchange of knowledge we can defeat the grifters out there trying to profit from this public health crisis.

Some misinformation that we've seen and removed includes:
  • Drinking bleach
  • Ingesting colloidal silver
  • Specially grown food products
  • General "wonder drugs"
  • Coronavirus was caused by, or is linked to, 5G phone networks
Statements that are not proven with this strain of virus:

The best way to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 is to practice social distancing (keeping 6 feet/2 meters from one another or at the very least, 3 feet/1 meter from the nearest person), and to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly (20 seconds at least).

While the forum rules are posted to every subforum, it's good to call special attention to this specific rule here:

  • Live Science forums host discussions based on established scientific principles, and as such, posts that attempt to ignore the preponderance of evidence, disavow scientific fact, or engage in logical fallacies to arrive at unfounded conclusions will be removed.
The virus itself causes a unique pneumonia. My response has been to fill a nasal mist pump sprayer with cetylpyradinium chloride dental rinse (without fluoride) and spray it up my nose and inhale repeated large numbers of sprays into my lungs all day until symptoms abate, taking effort to not swallow it as such. Since triclosan has been removed from the market, cetylpyradinium chloride is the safest available disinfectant for this use. It certainly has risks... and has prevented covid decline. My lungs remain fine despite my comorbidity of emphysema. I haven't smoked anything for years. Initially, it felt like gargling fluorosulfuric acid must feel in my throat. Now, I can tell it's there but only just. I gargle with it every 2 hours, in addition to 40 inhaled pumps from the mister every hour. As far as I know, this and using anticoagulant regimens to prevent blood clots, as well as trillions of organisms a day of probiotic to simultaneously stop cytokine storms and support effective Th cell immunity, are the only truly effective cheap treatments. You can get monoclonal antibodies, and those stupid marginally barely effective treatments like Remdesavir and dexamethasone. This is the place where Live Science doctors can call it unacceptably risky etc. But I dont care. They can ban me. I dont hold posting on this forum in high esteem. At one point they actually published a silly chinese study that indicated survival was enhanced by high numbers of gut clostridium. This is an AMA reviewed and controlled journal, and therefore geared to support Pharma. If someone came up with a way to reduce fatality from covid by 90+% and posted it here it would get reamed... especially were it affordable and from common stores.

Sars-cov-2 infection is too unpredictable and wide-ranging in its affinity for different organs with unknown long term effects, even in those under 40, to embark on that kind of approach whereby you purposely expose people to develop natural immunity as quickly as possible. All of those volunteers also become virus production labs for a while thus potentially passing the virus on to people more vulnerable. Controlling the spread until the vaccine was available (within a year) I believe saved many lives, as you see that the death rate goes up when the cases start to rise in an area.



Multiorgan and Renal Tropism of SARS-CoV-2
"The highest levels of SARS-CoV-2 copies per cell were detected in the respiratory tract, and lower levels were detected the kidneys, liver, heart, brain, and blood. These findings indicate a broad organotropism of SARS-CoV-2."

Literally the first result on a 5 second web search. This is a well described feature of this virus.

Notwithstanding that many younger than 40yrs old people have died from covid, to say that 12 days quarantine is 'trivial' is out of touch with the real world experience of this pandemic, where as little as only 20% of infected cases were actually self-isolating at one survey point.mAgain, you then have this highly mobile demographic out there spreading the virus further, putting those most vulnerable to severe illness at risk.
