How to Prevent the Spread: DO THE FIVE: Help Stop Coronavirus
1 HANDS Wash them often
2 ELBOW Cough into it
3 FACE Don’t touch it
4 SPACE Keep safe distance
5 HOME Stay IF you can
Additional Measures to Help Prevent the Spread and Protect Yourself:
- Drink water every 15 minutes: The virus moves through the oral cavity into the trachea, but only if the area is dry and not being regularly flushed. If COVID-19 is flushed from the mouth into the stomach, it will die in the hydrochloric acid state of the stomach.
- Drink hot tea regularly, for the same reason as drinking water regularly. The virus does not survive in heat, which is another reason hot fluids is helpful.
- Gargling regularly with warm fluids several times a day is additionally helpful.
The Symptoms of COVID-19:
It’s fairly straight forward:

AN ORTHOMOLECULAR APPROACH TO PREVENTING AND TREATING INFLUENZA
Presenter: Aileen Burford-Mason, PhD
Abstract: Immune function is controlled through nutrient-dependent metabolic pathways and the presence of multiple nutrients that are essential to these pathways is a prerequisite to mounting an effective antiviral defence. On average, 5-20% of North Americans succumb to influenza annually, involving 30 million doctor visits and 200,000 hospitalizations. Although vaccination reduces incidence, it does not offer total protection, and efficacy varies from a low of 10% (2004-5) to a high of 60% (2010-11). Evidence suggests that correcting common shortfalls of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can enhance immune responses to infection and complement current public health approaches to mitigate the incidence and severity of seasonal influenza.
