ABSTRACT: The only weapon we currently have against COVID-19 is HEAT. The only difference between a mild case of this flu and a lethal case of this flu is how far down the respiratory tract it goes, with pneumonia in the lungs being the most severe. Research shows that the optimal temperature for the replication of human based cold/flu viruses is 33C and colder and it is normally limited to the upper respiratory tract because of the higher temperatures of the lower respiratory tract. Research and correlation suggests that the zoonotic coronavirus that causes COVID-19 comes from an animal with a core body temperature of 40C (3C higher than humans) and indicates that the optimal temperature for replication could be as high as 35C to 36C and colder. Although the temperature of the human lower respiratory tract and lungs is normally close to 37C, there are a number of factors that can cause it to drop low enough to allow the zoonotic coronavirus to replicate optimally and cause life threatening pneumonia. The current objective of social distancing is to eliminate the exposure of humans to the coronavirus virus, however if you can keep the lower respiratory tract and lungs warm enough, you should be able to prevent or lessen the severity of COVID-19 if exposure does occur. Support for this theory comes from the animal world in which the transitionary animal for the zoonotic coronavirus, the “bat”, survives this virus with a self inflicted Hyperthermic Treatment of it’s own, a flight induced fever.

PROPOSAL: The only weapon we currently have left against COVID-19 is HEAT and I don’t mean as a cure, I mean as a reduction in severity or in some cases even prevention. The only difference between a mild case of the flu and a lethal case of the flu is how far down the respiratory tract they go, with pneumonia in the lungs being the most severe. Research shows that the optimal temperature for the replication of the human cold viruses is 33C and colder. The higher temperatures of the lower respiratory tract keep this virus from replicating deeper into the tract and most cold viruses are limited to the nose and throat. It is believed that the zoonotic coronavirus that causes COVID-19 originates in an animal with a core body temperature of 40C and therefore has a higher temperature for optimal replication in the range of 36C and colder and can penetrate further into the lower respiratory tract and even into the lungs IF the temperature drops low enough. The temperature gradient within a humans respiratory tract is dependent on three factors, your core body temperature, your ability to produce a fever and finally the temperature of the air you are breathing and how you take it in. Human core body temperatures are generally around 37C but can go as low as 35C in seniors (making seniors automatically the most at risk to severe cases of COVID-19. Younger healthy humans can achieve fevers safely to a temperature of 40C, while many seniors are unable to achieve a fever at all. It is also the norm for humans these days to regularly take fever reducing medications to bring down their fevers. The final factor of the temperature of the air we breath in is in fact a result of our lifestyle within the environment of our seasonal cold weather that we live in. On the extreme end of a very cold respiratory tract we have cold weather athletes breathing high volumes of extremely cold air, through their mouths for extended periods of time that can bring lung temperatures low enough to damage them (frostbite has even been suggested). Not as severe but still with temperatures low enough to be in the danger zone, we have people working, commuting or taking brisk walks/runs in very cool weather for extended times and not always dressed to keep their bodies warm. The point here is that you don’t have to be a senior, with an already low core body temperature to be susceptible to a severe case of COVID-19, if your activities cause your lower respiratory tract temperature to drop low enough to allow the replication of coronavirus in your lungs, you are going to get very sick.

Take a look at the environmental conditions in Wuhan China, with outdoor markets and cold living conditions that people were working and living in. How about Northern Italy, with the European lifestyle of going out in the cold every day to the shops exposing themselves to colder living conditions and possibly colder respiratory tracts, with a resulting mortality rate of over 10%. How about New York, a cold spring with thousands outdoors working, commuting, exercising in the cold air driving down their respiratory track temperatures. Take a look at Australia, just coming out of a warm summer, they still have over 5000 cases, but the warmer weather has reduced the mortality rate to less than 0.5%, people will still get sick but generally with much severe cases. What needs to be done is the recent history of as many patients as possible to be taken to get an idea of exposure to cold. Patient “vitals” should show patients with low body temperatures and the outcomes of their illness.

The idea of heat being a weapon against a virus has not escaped the animal world either. The following is a Veterinarian Article that suggests that the body temperature of many species of bats while flying is likely high enough to reduce virus replication and allow bats to better survive viral infections.

Bat Flight and Elevated Body Temperatures Canale and Henry
“The heat of fever forestalls pathogen replication and increases the efficiency of the immune responses. Such body warming is associated with shortened disease duration and improved survival in most animals.” Although fever has been associated with improved recovery, very little is known about mechanisms, including whether the impact involves thresholds or average rates of immune response. During fever, mammalian core body temperatures can vary but typically are 38°C–41°C (14). The high metabolic demands of bat flight results in core body temperatures that commonly reach the ranges of core temperatures typical of fever. High body temperatures during flight have been demonstrated in multiple species of bats within several families and such high body temperature ranges increase the rate of multiple immune responses in mammals, including components of the innate and adaptive immune systems. Daily high body temperatures thus might arm bats against some pathogens during the early stages of infection.”

All the evidence is there, the only way to fight this Coronavirus without a viable antiviral drug or vaccine is HEAT. DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO KEEP YOUR BODY AND YOUR RESPIRATORY TRACT AS WARM AS POSSIBLE. STAY INSIDE WERE THE AIR IS WARM TO BREATH, DO NOT TAKE FEVER REDUCING MEDICATIONS, TURN UP THE HEAT ON RESPIRATORS, EXPLORE HYPERTHERMIC TREATMENT, ANYTHING THAT WILL PREVENT YOUR LUNGS FROM GETTING COLD ENOUGH TO ALLOW REPLICATION OF THE CORONAVIRUS.

I've always questioned the use of aspirin, etc. to reduce a fever when heat is a part of the body's defense. With no known remedies to this new virus, I was speculating that if I were to get it and have to remain at home, perhaps I'd use my mother's old remedy of mustard plasters on my chest and back whenever I'd get a bad case of bronchitis as a child. Is heat on the chest being used anywhere?

Can I have a link to the Bat Flight quote? not that I doubt it is a real quote, just interested in the article or paper.

Hi! When fighting against coronavirus always be hydrated why not try this site that my mom recommended me because it has the quickest and most effective way to re-hydrate a tired body is through IV therapy. IV bar Denver or intravenous therapy delivers liquid vitamins and nutrients directly into a vein via an IV drip.
Or you could just drink a lot of water.
 
Negative. Ozone. And some other things. But I prefer to see the population reduced. Fear and heartache cause people to do the most innovative things.
