Not a case study but a doctor's eyewitness report of a family at ground zero in Wuhan and its experience using vitamin C.

Vitamin C Saves Wuhan Family from COVID-19
by Richard Cheng, M.D., Ph.D.
Watch it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/6-elCYFhqJs

(OMNS Mar 5, 2020) Ms. N lives in Wuhan, China. She takes special care about the well-being of her entire family including her chronically-ill mother, aged 71. Ms. N has always been interested in nutrition and she recently learned about vitamin C's antiviral effects.

I am an American physician currently residing in Shanghai. I interviewed Ms. N by telephone after I received a forwarded story that she posted on Chinese social media, WeChat. I made an effort to connect with Ms. N to verify the story and below is what she told me.
Ms. N lives with her child in the epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic. She is close to her parents and her brother and his wife. The six of them visit each other on a regular basis. Her mother has diabetes and heart disease with stents placed, in addition to several other chronic illnesses including reflux esophagitis.

Right before the Chinese New Year, around January 21st, her mother developed flu-like symptoms, with a low grade fever of 38C. Based on her knowledge. Ms. N advised all members of the family to take oral vitamin C. She herself has been taking about 20,000 mg daily in divided-up doses. Her mother reluctantly took a smaller dose, probably half or less of what her daughter's been taking.

Her mother's condition was stable for 9-10 days. But on January 30th, without deteriorating, her mother decided to go to Wuhan Union Hospital, Tongji College of Medicine, The Science and Technology University of Central China, a hospital prominent not only in Wuhan, but in all of China. She wanted to check out if she was infected with the Wuhan pneumonia virus. She got her presumption confirmed. At the hospital, she was diagnosed of what became known now as Covid-19 pneumonia. The second day upon admission, her fever started going up, as high as 39.6C. In about 10 days on February 10th she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and went on the heart-lung machine as a final attempt to save her life.

At this time Ms. N learned of the clinical trials with vitamin C, administered by infusion (IVC; intravenous vitamin C). Immediately she requested the person in charge on the ICU to use large dose IVC on her mother. The attending physician agreed but would go only to around 10,000 mg. So it happened. After 20 days in ICU, her mother improved and was discharged to a regular ward a few days ago, continuing the IVC treatment, as insisted by Ms. N.

While in hospital, Miss N, her brother and sister-in-law took turns to visit and take care of her mother. They were wearing very simple protection: gloves and masks. Also noted is that while her mother got sick at home, none of the five other family members was wearing any mask for several days. But all of them went on oral vitamin C tablets. None of them developed COVID-19 infection.

So far this is the story of Ms. N. We wish her mother a full and rapid recovery.

In the context of the vast amount of research, clinical studies, case reports and my own decades of experience on vitamin C's use on viral infections, I summarize the story below with a few take-home messages:

1. Vitamin C tablets at high doses daily may be the reason why the family didn't catch the infection.
2. Given her age, history of chronic disease, and the high mortality of COVID-19 on seniors, IVC may have played a large role in her mother's improvement.
3. The news of official IVC clinical trials has definitely had a positive impact in this case, as the attending physician was emboldened to use IVC.
4. A well-functioning immune system is of the utmost importance to keep away the viral infection. And, vitamin C may support the defense against the COVID-19 virus, most importantly in chronically ill patients with a weakened immune system.

(Note from Andrew W. Saul, OMNS Editor-in-Chief: Dr. Richard Cheng is still in China now. He continues to work overtime with expert Chinese doctors and hospitals to facilitate providing intravenous vitamin C for the most seriously ill COVID-19 victims.

I checked prices today for sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate (sodium free), and C in tablet and capsule forms on Amazon; they remain steady.
Being a long standing Vitamin C advocate and user as an antiviral, I am well stocked, but seeing that others could still become so as well, is encouraging.

It's what Granny has always said. Turns out Granny is right.  :D

Zedta, what's your take on all this? My common sense tells me get to confession, don't receive at Mass and cancel Sunday school until we have more of a handle on this thing. There's a St Joseph's party at church I'm supposed to bring food to next week. It just doesn't feel right to me to go ahead with this. I'm afraid of being looked down on for that, but it seems like common sense. This thing has me spooked.

"Thou shall not put the Lord thy God to the test." Right?

Get your spirit in the right condition first. Go to Confession, especially. Step up your prayer life and keep your eyes open. Having a few dollars of cash on hand may be a good plan as well.

I don't know where you live, but I am going to quit buying goods after Wednesday, next week. I think the supply chain may be (and this is a personal speculation) at risk of contamination after then, and I am trying to be conservative, it could be risky later and I am in a relatively rural area, near a dense population/University town, where the traffic of people are quite mobile and come from all over the country and the world. I think that I may not be able to see my Nursing Home folks after next week, they will probably shut them down for outside visitation.

Pharmaceuticals are reportedly going to run out in the supply depots in 45 days.

I had a discussion with our Parish priest a couple of days ago (we are vastly a retirement age group) and have stopped offering The Blood and may go to Host in the hand only and forgo the Sign of Peace, soon.

I went to a service today for all the people of our Parish who have died over the last year and they mentioned a continuation of the after Mass hospitality, next Sunday, but we shall see how long that lasts and 'pot luck' dinners may be a bad idea in as much as a couple of weeks or less.

How this spreads has to be watched closely and keep communications open on the ground and local. MSM cannot be trusted on many levels and they will not release accurate information to control panic, but if you see shortages in the stores and a lot fewer truck on the interstate, its time to hunker down.

The real danger is not so much the flu as the response of the populace to it. Things are already in place to shut down systems and living in the big cities is going to be very difficult when trucking stops. I would say, when you see supplies of toilet paper getting scarce in Sams and WalMart, it won't be long before other 'necessities' get scarce too.

Starting today, I will be spraying down (10% bleach solution) all my mail and open it outside in the sun. Foolish, maybe, but its also cautious and couldn't hurt to get into the habit. Bottom line, the worst is probably 30 to 45 days out and I am preparing to "Quarantine at Home".
Thanks, Zedta. I'm not gonna panic. God's in control. Life is still good. I have a full pantry and water plus a few of those little buddy heaters. I am going out today to stick some money in my bank account to keep the 'wolves from the door'. Plus I need dog food, so there's that. 

I'm in NJ. My husband's commuting into the city five days a week. That's bad. I want him to take the car, but he tells me parking is too much of a hassle.  plus my kids are all at work and/or school. One's homeschooled; the youngest. The high schooler is involved in a Spring production which will happen around the weekend of the 21. I'm very concerned about that, too. 

It seems like a lot of people aren't getting how serious this thing is. I've ordered a bunch of face masks. I need a bunch of stuff in case I have to nurse someone from home. I need to get a few more things.
"I need to get a few more things."

I'll pray for this intention and all the others you have. I'll be praying especially for those who cannot prepare as they'd like, that God will provide any way.
Got to Sunday school, Confession and received Communion. If the Lord allows me to get this bad virus, I'm ready now I guess. 

We'll just have to do the best we can.
