Today, I will just highlight a few of the updates that I have made to the Library article,Covid-19 Summary. There have been many tweaks to that article, but if you don’t have time to read it, these new points should still be of interest. (By the way, the graph is about global increases/decreases in deaths, but I put in in just because it is as crazy as the times.)
Click this link for a slightly improved pdf document of natural and nutritional suggestions for prevention and treatment. You can print it and share this potentially lifesaving information with family, friends (or even strangers as one listener plans to do).
Case #’s. A note has been added to that section saying that 80% of covid-19 cases have no or very mild symptoms. That’s good, but the percentage may in part reflect that too many of the cases identified in the now wider testing may be false positive results…meaning they were called a case but really were not. Dr. Mercola writes about the high rate of false positive test results.
Censorship. This note was added to that section: My chiropractor, Andrew Shepherd, DC, was spreading the truth about how to help your immune system with vitamins, exercise, sleep, and an organic whole food diet. Then his YouTube and Facebook accounts were summarily shut down without his consent.
Contagiousness timing. This is the revised section:
- According to a Harvard review, it might be 5 to 6 days after exposure before symptoms appear.
- However, people “may be contagious 48 to 72 hours before starting to experience symptoms.”
- Five days from exposure may be the best time to be tested.
- Persons who are infected but either never develop symptoms or just haven’t developed them yet can infect others. (That is the reason for quarantine after exposure.)
- A person may remain contagious for 10 days (or longer if their immune system is weak or they have a serious case of the disease). Being without fever for 24 hours is a good additional precaution.
- The new mutation of the virus first noticed in the UK seems to be more contagious and may not follow these guidelines. Fortunately, it does not seem to be more lethal.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posted this good resource page including information about the risk of re-infection 90 days after having been sick with covid-19.
Medications. New information has been added about Remdesivir, Monoclonal Antibodies, Steroids and Convalescent Plasma.
Vaccine. This section now includes this information: The virus mutations seem to react the same way to the vaccines. I recommend reading this eye-opening post by the Weston A. Price Foundation which questions the hype surrounding the new covid-19 vaccines. As just one example, the article says, “Vaccine manufacturers claim that Covid-19 vaccines are 95 percent ‘effective,’ but the FDA is allowing companies to define effectiveness as ‘prevention of mild symptoms’. The studies are not designed to detect a reduction in outcomes such as severe illness, hospitalization or death.1,2” One might assume if you don’t get mild symptoms, you won’t go on to get more serious ones, but the data doesn’t tell us that. Also, note that in this linked article, Expert Robert F. Kennedy Jr. makes his case against getting the vaccine. I’m only saying that it makes sense to do some investigating and don’t make your decision based only on what you will hear on the evening news.
