Covid-19 (WuFlu) News

  • It shows that people were closing businesses and sheltering at home before the governor issued a stay-at-home mandate, and they are still doing that even though the governor lifted it


    What that tells me is that people act in their own self interest. No need then, for government to impose their will in a "one size fits all" approach. Give the citizens the info they need, and let them decide how to act.

  • COVID-19 Therapeutics: Computational Screenings Show A Variety Of Natural Phytochemicals Could Have Efficacy Against SARS-CoV-2 Including EGCG From Green Tea.

    INCLUSION OF IVERMECTIN IN THE FIRST THERAPEUTIC LINE OF ACTION FOR COVID-19

    A very significant decrease in the Mortality Rate is reported with its use Gustavo Aguirre Chang. Doctor

    graduated from UNMSM, with Post Graduate Programs in Management and Occupational Health. Lima Peru. May,2 ,2020


    With infection rates rising(2nd highest in S.America) and the annual health expenditure per capita = $300 USD

    hopefully the reported results prove to be representative.. there is no place for expensive medicines..

    Over 500 GP surgeries are asking those with a new, continuous cough or high temperature to test existing drugs.


    The trial, led by a team at Oxford University, will compare with the current best available care a number of low-risk treatments recommended by an expert panel advising the chief medical officer for England, including:

    • a seven-day course of hydroxychloroquine, usually used for acute malaria or arthritis

  • "Ein uns zugespieltes Dokument des Bundesministeriums für Inneres, Bau und Heimat zeigt auf, dass es seit Tagen ein Papier des Referates KM4 des BMI gab. Zu Ihrer Information: Das KM4 befasst sich mit dem Schutz Kritischer Infrastrukturen als einem besonderen Teilgebiet des Bevölkerungsschutzes. Hierbei geht es um den Schutz von Organisationen und Einrichtungen mit wichtiger Bedeutung für das staatliche Gemeinwesen, bei deren Ausfall oder Beeinträchtigung nachhaltig wirkende Versorgungsengpässe, erhebliche Störungen deröffentlichen Sicherheit oder andere dramatische Folgen eintreten würden.

    Die Anschreiben zeigen auch, dass mehrere Minister dieses Papier kannten. Doch anstatt zu reagieren, hat man den Ersteller gestern anscheinend „frei gestellt“.

    Alle Originalschreiben MIT Namen liegen uns vor, wir werden diese jedoch zum Schutz der beteiligten Personen nicht veröffentlichen, bevor diese das selbst tun. In Kürze ist das Ergebnis der Arbeit:

    Interne Analyse KM 4 ergibt:

    •  gravierende Fehlleistungen des Krisenmanagements
    •  Defizite im Regelungsrahmen für Pandemien
    •  Coronakrise erweist sich wohl als Fehlalarm

    Schauen Sie hier den kompletten Bericht an und erfahren auch Sie endlich, was unsere regierung schon seit Tagen wusste: Der Shutdown ist und war voreilig, unsinnig und führte zu mehr Toten als Covid-19."

  • As a preventative measure, I have recently started taking an N-Acetyl Cysteine supplement, an antioxidant available over the counter to protect against Covid-19.


    As always exercise extreme caution self-medicating - check with your healthcare provider.


    Side effects, contraindications, and interactions for this one don't look too bad, but some are non-trivial:

  • I think we are at a point today where each person has to take on the level of risk they feel comfortable with. I wear a mask to the grocery store


    This is a case where personal risk and societal risk are different. Even if, in fact, the personal risk is pretty low, given that COVID has such large and negative effects on society functioning (even in absence of lockdown, or health service breakdown), keeping it going is a very bad thing for society.


    So you might be OK with the very low personal risk (if under 40 years age, or under 47 years age and female, with no comorbidities) but still your taking risks would, if done by many, be very bad for society (and therefore also you).


    it is the same trade-off as vaccinating for any othr infectious disease when disease levels are low. (Though in that case the personal risk is variable, because if not enough people vaccinate disease levels eventually change to being high, as is happening with Measles!).

  • No one is in favor of a lockdown. It is a last, desperate measure when all else has failed.


    Only a few places had to force a lock down: Wuhan two neighbor cities, Italy, France, Spain, UK, New York New Jersey. Others like Russia do fail, Ecuador is even worse. The damage from the lockdown including excess deaths is far higher than the profit for most places. In fact Switzerland does only see a very few excess deaths due to COV-19, Germany might see more excess deaths due to the lockdown...

Even if, in fact, the personal risk is pretty low, given that COVID has such large and negative effects on society functioning (even in absence of lockdown, or health service breakdown), keeping it going is a very bad thing for society.


    The only effect of COV-19 in stable societies, not in semi slave systems like USA/UK/Russia/Spain/North Italy, is very moderate. As mentioned 95% of all infected people do show no symptoms at all. So COV-19 is much less harmful than a flue. Real danger occurs among people with bad nutrition habits, high age and long medical treatment history. Basically at least 95% of all deaths are from people than were on the way to die anyway but did survive due to medication only. Stable countries most likely will see no excess deaths end of 2020.

    It’s the new normal where you have to assess your risk factors. Am I concerned about the virus? I definitely am.


    If you believe the disinformation of the plutocrats then I would be concerned about them not about COV-19. For healthy people age < 65 the risk is far below 0.1%. The main problem (try to read some studies..) is that the average start of medication is 9 days after symptoms. This is outraging ruthless behavior ordered most likely by the plutocrats (members like Gilead owners). HCQ + Acithromycin + zinc works perfectly if given the first 48 hours. Ivermectin works even much later and Heparin now is a must for all sent home with symptoms.


    As always exercise extreme caution self-medicating - check with your healthcare provider.


    You again miss the point: This (N-Acetyl Cysteine) is not medication as drinking Sencha (Japanese green tea) is no medication too or eating healthy food is no medication. It just an add-on! It's taking care about your health or not. You can also take Quercetin.

    Wenn die Deutsche Regierung tatsächlich ein solch dilletantisches Dokument verwenden würde, dann hätte ich mehr Angst vor den absolut inkompetenten Beamten und ihren Entscheidungen als vor Corona. Fakt ist: Seit Schröder (erster "sozi-" Freimaurer Kanzler ) ist der Deutsche Staat breitflächig unterwandert und wird dieser von den Plutokraten fröhlich ausgesaugt. Siehe BER, Bundesbahn oder Förderbanken, Geschenke and die Energiewirtschaft und nicht vergessen alle lieben Freunde der Autoindustrie, die dank im Schnitt 7x überhöhten Stickoxiden den Deutschen Wald mit grossem familiären Gewinn fröhlich abtöten.

    Ok - this is often misunderstood.


    Drugs that are found in food, or natural products, can be and often are just as potent as drugs that do not normally occur in food. They are not necessarily safe, we cannot be sure that all we eat is uncarcinogenic etc. Alcohol, sanctioned by tradition, is thoroughly poisonous in many ways. But it is generally felt that providing doses are no higher than what a normal diet might provide they are OK.


    However, if concentrated and taken as supplements the doses used are often much higher than what would typically come from food, so even this limited safety assurance goes away.


    It always annoys me when people treat Chinese Medicine as guaranteed safe because it is natural. TCM contains many active substances, and these can cure diseases, or poison, or have unexpected interactions with other drugs.

  • Also in food there are multiple compounds that work collectively so a cumulative multi-substance effect may be greater than isolated lab made compounds.

  • A new preprint identifies some nutraceuticals (Silymarin, Withanolide D, and Oridonin) as possible anti-Covid treatments --

    A new Chinese paper identifying several possible natural anti-Covid treatments -

    "Rapid Structure-Based Screening Informs Potential Agents for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak"

    Abstract

    Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the novel coronavirus, has spread rapidly across China. Consequently, there is an urgent need to sort and develop novel agents for the prevention and treatment of viral infections. A rapid structure-based virtual screening is used for the evaluation of current commercial drugs, with structures of human angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2), and viral main protease, spike, envelope, membrane and nucleocapsid proteins. Our results reveal that the reported drugs Arbidol, Chloroquine and Remdesivir may hinder the entry and release of virions through the bindings with ACE2, spike and envelope proteins. Due to the similar binding patterns, NHC (β-d-N4-hydroxycytidine) and Triazavirin are also in prospects for clinical use. Main protease (3CLpro) is likely to be a feasible target of drug design. The screening results to target 3CL-pro reveal that Mitoguazone, Metformin, Biguanide Hydrochloride, Gallic acid, Caffeic acid, Sulfaguanidine and Acetylcysteine seem be possible inhibitors and have potential application in the clinical therapy of COVID-19.

    A driver was fined of drinking alcohol albeit he didn't. Why: He did read some very ripe fruits for desert (in a restaurant) and the story went on. He didn't have to pay the fine but just for legal consideration like in cases athletes claims to have eaten hormones in steaks what sometimes is correct for junior beef raising...


    But eating distinct healthy food with high polyphenol content (red wine.., black chocolate, sencha green tea and many bitter fruit) or adding Vi-D Zinc is always a good idea. Even Tannins of black tea can bind virus.


    But all this does not help you if you can't find an independent doctor that has no custom to live with the yearly donations of the big pharma mafia.
