A Guide to What to Know About COVID-19

By Katherine J.Wu/

Since Saturday, the United States has reported its first six known COVID-19-related deaths, all in the Seattle area, prompting Washington state Governor Jay Inslee to declare a state of emergency. On Sunday, both Rhode Island and New York announced their first probable cases of coronavirus, making them the second and third states on the east coast (after Massachusetts).

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintain that the immediate health risk posed by COVID-19 remains low for the general American public, Nancy Messonnier, director of the organization’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, has warned that the disease’s spread throughout the country is “not so much a question of if this will happen anymore, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen.”

As the coronavirus—now officially named SARS-CoV-2—spreads, so too has misinformation, stymieing efforts to educate and protect the global community. Many questions about the virus and the disease remain unanswered.

Thanks in part to a solid understanding of other types of coronaviruses that have plagued us in the past, researchers are quickly homing in on COVID-19’s potential impacts and identifying some of the most important preventative measures people can take. Here’s a quick rundown…

    • Interested researchers in this field should read the above articles. If they do read them they will discover alternative ways of solving viral problems in medicine which differ from those proposed by the medical orthodoxy. It is always good to have alternative ways to solve problems because “one size fits all” may in fact not fit all! The bigoted attitudes of our alphabet agencies in government are an unscientific shameful disgrace.

    • The underlying cause of this scientific or rather non scientific bigotry is very simple:

      Big Money for Big Pharma. In other words, the love of MONEY has corrupted the interests of patients.

    • “Could Vitamin C Be the Cure for Deadly Infections?
      A new protocol that includes this common nutrient could save millions of lives—and has already sparked a raging debate among doctors

  2. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can
    happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
    9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
    10. Can’t emphasise enough – drink plenty of water!
    1. It will first infect the throat. so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
    2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing
    pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
    3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
    4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you
    then seek immediate attention.

  3. ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles,
    who’s graduated with a master’s degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province,
    China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance:
    1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
    2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
    3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates
    the Sun.
    4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer
    5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any
    metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
    6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
    7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
    8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can
    happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
    9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
