"Having a vaccine and having a safe vaccine are very different indeed!"

The Orthomolecular News Service just issued this report:

Vitamin C and COVID-19 Coronavirus

by Damien Downing, MBBS, MRSB and Gert Schuitemaker, PhD

(OMNS February 28, 2020) There is only one existing treatment for the new coronavirus: vitamin C. 

Vitamin C supports your immune system. 

Vitamin C helps to kill the virus and reduces the symptoms of infection. 

It's not a COVID "cure," but nothing is. 

It might just save your life, though, and will definitely reduce the severity of the infection. 

If someone tells you it's not proven, consider two things:

  1. Nothing is proven to work against COVID-19, because it is a new virus.
  2. Vitamin C has worked against every single virus including influenzas, pneumonia, and even poliomyelitis.
What to do

If you do nothing else, start taking vitamin C right away; at least 3 grams a day, spread right across the day. That's a 1,000 milligram capsule every 8 hours, or a level teaspoon of powder dissolved in a pint or so of water, drank all through the day.

If you're smart and motivated, do all the other things recommended in our previous release: Vitamin C Protects Against Coronavirus (http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v16n04.shtml

When and if you catch a bug that might be COVID-19, simply increase your vitamin C intake: a rounded teaspoon (that's 4 to 5 grams) in water (which helps to keep you hydrated) every 3 or 4 hours. And keep on taking it.

Do you consult a doctor? Do you self-isolate? Yes and yes. Of course you do; that's your duty to others.

Vitamin C and the other measures are what you do for yourself.

*          *          *

If you do choose to take vitamin C--sodium ascorbate is easily added to cold drinks--you may want to move quickly. China is nearly the world's sole supplier of this vitamin and the government is now aware of its efficacy, having recently trucked 50 TONS to Wuhan. The price is likely to go up and supply will be limited. Currently Now Foods (available everywhere and online) appears to have the best price.

Looks like it's getting a foot hold in the US.

2 new cases in Washington and of course we are seeing it in Cali as well.

I would also like to comment regarding the flu comparison mentioned above.

My main concern is by cdc estimates during the 2018-2019 flu season there were 35.5 million illnesses associated with the flu and 34,200 deaths.

The coronavirus appears to be much more contagious and with a potentially 2% mortality rate. Let's say we see 35.5 million infections and if it does in fact have a 2% mortality rate. That would put the death count at 710,000.

Nothing to scoff at.

The State of Oregon held a press conference this evening, announcing a “presumptive case” of coronavirus infection in Washington County. As we’ve now seen across the entire country for the last three weekslab testing of this person was prohibited by the CDC, which allowed the virus to spread for weeks by withholding permission for state public health labs to conduct coronavirus testing on their own.

Earlier today, the Oregon Health Authority was granted permission by the CDC to start conducting tests for the very first time (before today, Oregon had conducted exactly zero tests, just like California, Hawaii, Florida and nearly every other U.S. state). Within hours, Oregon identified a coronavirus infection. “The lab tested the sample today—only hours after it validated the new CDC test kit,” reports the Oregon Health Authority.

From the full press release:
The case was not a person under monitoring or a person under investigation. The individual had neither a history of travel to a country where the virus was circulating, nor is believed to have had a close contact with another confirmed case—the two most common sources of exposure. As such, public health officials are considering it a likely community-transmitted case, meaning that the origin of the infection is unknown.

The patient is now quarantined just today, after weeks of exposing staff and students in the Lake Oswego school district

It appears the individual was a school teacher or staff member.

Also from the press release:
The individual spent time in a school in the Lake Oswego school district and may have exposed students and staff there. Public health officials will investigate potential exposures there and contact employees and families of children to let them know next steps.

The CDC’s mission was well accomplished, it seems, in delaying state-level testing for the coronavirus, allowing it to spread for 3-4 weeks while the lying mainstream media ran with a bogus “it’s no worse than the flu” cover story.

Over the next several days, we are all about to witness an explosion of confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States as state and local public health labs begin ramping up testing, ultimately reaching a combined capacity of 10,000 tests per day over the next few weeks, according to the former head of the FDA.

President Trump and his coronavirus propaganda team are unprepared for the reality of what’s happening

President Trump has dispatched V.P. Mike Pence to carry out what is essentially a propaganda role to try to convince the American people to buy more stocks and don’t notice the collapsing global supply chain. With each passing day, this looks like the end of the Trump presidency. Instead of putting legitimate scientists, virologists or epidemiologists in charge of the nationwide pandemic project, we’ve got Mike Pence, a former Goldman Sachs banker, a publicist and probably a mime, too, for all we know.

None of them have any real clue about infectious disease. We’re not saying they’re bad people, but managing a viral outbreak requires very specific technical knowledge and training, and these people flat out don’t have it. Trump is receiving horrible advice on all this, and he’s chosen the wrong people to run the pandemic response team.

Putting Mike Pence in charge of a viral outbreak is sort of like putting Jeff Sessions in charge of the DOJ. Look what happened there…

Why it’s WAY worse than the flu

On a financial note, you can’t just keep cheerleading the stock market while denying the reality of a pandemic that could quite literally kill millions of Americans. If just 50% of the U.S. population gets infected, a 2% mortality rate for the coronavirus would result in 3.3 million deaths.

Still think it’s no worse than the flu? The people saying that are truly among the dumbest people alive today. They might even be too stupid to survive the very virus they think is no worse than the flu.

After the first 100,000 people are infected in America and the hospital beds are overrun, let’s see how many oblivious morons are still claiming it’s no worse than the flu.

It’s hard enough to save people from the coronavirus. But saving people from their own stupidity is darn near impossible. Some people, it seems, are destined to be virus food.

Lake Oswego is a snooty little Me-First kind of a town, (very, very affluent), and I heard that as soon as the corona virus news broke the Lake Oswego urgent care turned into pure bedlam, (and the all the Kung-flu jokes stopped too). People.
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!

COVID-19" What you're NOT Being Told by Officials or Media: This will be Survival of the Fittest. The rest will die.
World News Desk 27 February 2020  Hits: 21784 

[Image: CoronavirusImage_large.png]
[Image: icon.png] 36 Comments
Since the outbreak of a "novel coronavirus" in Wuhan, China in Mid-December, the disease has spread wildly, killing many who become infected.  A LOT has been learned about this illness, but YOU are not being told.  Here's what YOU need to know . . .  because your LIFE depends on you knowing:
This coronavirus, now named COVID-19, is the worst public health crisis since the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918.   Almost no one alive today has lived through anything like this, and literally MILLIONS worldwide, will NOT LIVE through this. 
 
DISEASE FACTS:
This disease has an eighty-three percent (83%) infection rate.  This means that if 100 people are merely EXPOSED to it, 83 will get sick.

Of those who get sick, about half will get so sick, they will need hospital care.

Of those who need a hospital, about half will end up needing INTENSIVE CARE due to fluid build-up in their lungs (Pneumonia).

Of those who need INTENSIVE CARE, and who GET THAT CARE, fifteen percent (15%) will die.

So, using the example above of 100 people exposed, we get 83 who get sick, about half (40) need a hospital,  half of those (20), need ICU, and of those, 3 die.
 
ULTRA CONTAGIOUS
This new disease is an absolute NIGHTMARE in its ability to spread. 

 It's horrifying.

It spreads the way other diseases can, through coughing, sneezing, and the like. So if you are walking down the street, and an infected person a block away sneezes or coughs, the wind can carry that virus right to . . . YOU.
  
Similarly, if you're in a store shopping, and an infected person coughed or sneezed minutes earlier, and several store aisles away, the heating and air conditioning system can blow that virus all over the store, and as you are minding your business, it blow onto YOU.
 
This virus can live OUTSIDE A PERSON, in the air or on surfaces, for upwards of NINE DAYS!!!!!

That means the counter at a store cashier, or in a restaurant, or at a bank teller, or at an ATM can be contaminated as well.  Worse still, door handles.   You're out doing business and pull open the door to a company or store, and you have no way on knowing that an infected person grabbed that same handle a day earlier.  Now, his virus is on YOUR hand.  When you touch your face, blow your nose, grab a hamburger, hot dog or sandwich and eat it without washing your hands, POW, you're infected.
 
INFECTING OTHERS WITHOUT SYMPTOMS
A number of people who contract this virus start shedding it to others BEFORE THEY GET SYMPTOMS.  So the infected person DOES NOT KNOW he's sick, but begins spreading it to other people!!!

Doctors measure how many people are typically infected by one sick person, and they record that as R0 (pronounced "R naught").   The R naught for this virus is between R4 and R6.   So one infected person can be expected to infect between four and six other people! ! ! ! That is a catastrophic level of contagiousness. 
 
Here's where things get absolutely nuts:
THIS disease also "sheds" from infected people via urine and feces.  So, when an infected person goes to the bathroom and flushes, the swirling toilet water thrusts a small torrent of tiny mist all over the place and in that mist . . . . is virus!  You walk into the bathroom and smell another person's "stink" and POW, you're infected.

As the toilet contents go down into the sewers and head out to the sewer treatment plant, some of the water evaporates and comes out the holes in manhole covers across town.  In that water vapor . . .  is virus.   So people on ONE side of town, can get a blast of virus because another person on the OTHER side of town, took a dump while infected, and flushed, and the virus comes out of the sewer!
  
In one apartment building in Hong Kong, a sewer vent pipe in a wall had a crack in it.  Virus went up that vent pipe, got out a crack, and infected people in apartments several floors away from an infected family! (STORY HERE)

Here is where things get REALLY UGLY . . .
 
HOSPITAL FACTS:
In the United States, there are only 2.4 hospital beds per 1,000 people. (SOURCE)

So, using the numbers above about the 83% infection rate, if 1,000 people get exposed, 830 will get sick.  About half, 400, will need hospital, and half of those, 200, will need ICU.  But there are only 2.4 hospital beds per 1,000 people.

Now, you're a smart person.  How many people can the 2.4 hospital beds hold?   Yep, 2.4.

So when we have 400 people sick with this COVID-19 virus who need hospital, and the 2.4 beds are full, that leaves 398 who CANNOT GET HOSPITAL CARE.

In Wuhan, China, the epicenter of this outbreak, people who needed hospital care, but who could not get it because the hospitals were full, suffered a death rate of 61.5%  (Source)
If that just sent shivers up your spine, it should have.  This is a terrible reality.  And it's here; in America,  now.
 Because when you apply the fatality rate for those who died in Wuhan because they could not get care, the numbers then look like this per 1,000:
1000 exposed = 830 Infected.
Half need hospital = 400
Half of those need ICU = 200
Only 2.4 beds = 397 WITHOUT CARE
of the 397 who need care but cannot get it because hospitals are full, 61.5% die = 244 DEAD, per 1,000 infected.

This is why a LEAKED Government document in the United Kingdom, shows the UK government making plans for MASS GRAVES!

This is also why China recently bought -- and deployed -- forty (40) portable cremation furnaces for Wuhan.   Each furnace can cremate 50 people per day.  Times forty furnaces equals 2,000 bodies PER DAY.
 
NEW DEVELOPMENTS:
Since the outbreak began, scientists have studied this virus like no other, and what they're finding is that the virus appears to be "bi-phasic."   It happens in TWO phases, similar to the way ANTHRAX happens.  (STORY)

The first phase causes fever, cough, congestion in the lungs, and myalgia (muscle twitches and pain).   Then, it **** seems **** to go away.   

But it doesn't go away.
 
People who have been released from hospitals, showing NO TRACE of active virus, suddenly drop dead on the streets from heart failure.   That's the SECOND phase of the virus.  It attacks the vital organs, kidneys mostly.  The person feels achy again, feels tired again, figures it will pass and keeps on about their daily life.  But what's actually taking place inside them is the disease is sending them into Sepsis, and they drop dead from Septic Shock and organ failure.
 
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
We are in for a terrible, life altering, situation.   Many, many, people are going to get terribly sick and DIE.   Almost none of us has ever lived through a real pandemic like this before.   It's going to be heart-breaking to see the level of suffering and death.

We will see, firsthand, with our own eyes, nature's primary law: Survival of the fittest.

Not just the physically fittest, but the mentally fittest as well.   A lot of people in America are going to die because mentally, they cannot or will not see the facts as they are.   They will REFUSE to plan with emergency food and water.  They will refuse to wear filter masks.  They will refuse to comply with Quarantines.   The mentally unfit will likely die-off at larger levels than the physically unfit.  Their tombstones should read "Died because he was stupid."
 
Government is not telling you this because they don't want you to panic.  

Noble goal, but misplaced.
  
We're adults.  We not only have a right to know the facts, we MUST know in order to make informed decisions about our own safety.

This web site, and the Hal Turner Radio Show, have been publicizing the facts because we trust in the American people to be mature, responsible, and rational.  We will continue to do so.

Cannot print this report as it is private only for subscribers, however I can say that there are reports from Italy that there are numerous 'versions', 20 native strains of CORVID-19, Corona Virus, being identified and it appears that the virus is mutating, as in changing. No wonder there are reports of people being reinfected. The virus is mutating in many patients, it appears.

Then there are these gems:

A number of California counties have declared medical emergencies due to the virus. The CDC has held up kits to diagnose the virus, but after pressure, will release them on tomorrow, Monday. Why were they held up for weeks? Why, up to this date, have only three labs been able to detect the virus by testing and why have they only tested fewer than 500 samples?

How many people were released to spread the virus unawares? In one, now verified case, a carrier was a flight attendant on numerous commercial flights with hundreds of passengers potentially infected and now all wandering about in the country. That's just one bad example out of California.

Another source is saying that the formula for this virus could have been sold to China by one of the Bidens? Some congressmen are looking into which Air Force 1 or 2 that he flew on for the trip. China has not had the technological level of competence to create this type of virus, until after one of those kind of visits by them and they could also have given secrets on the F-35 fighter jet technology.

The timing of this viral release is getting more and more suspicious every day. Could it be that the Democrats know they are finished and the Deep State knows the law is on their doorstep and they have nothing left to loose but bring the whole thing down?

Just wondering.

Just saw this article giving us that twist of the HIV DNA proteins detected in the Corona Virus:


Article Wrote:Scientists Discover HIV-Like "Mutation" Which Makes Coronavirus Extremely Infectious

[Image: mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fzh-prod-1cc738ca-...2UJsdQ--~C]
by Tyler Durden
Thu, 02/27/2020 - 05:32

Link to Original Article      

While mainstream scientists continue to perform mental gymnastics to insist that the new coronavirus wasn't man-made, new research from scientists in China and Europe reveal that the disease happens to have an 'HIV-like mutation' which allows it to bind with human cells up to 1,000 times stronger than the Sars virus, according to SCMP.
[Image: mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fzh-prod-1cc738ca-...hqoDAw--~C]

Recall that at the end of January, a team of Indian scientists wrote in a now-retracted, scandalous paper claiming that the coronavirus may have been genetically engineered to incorporate parts of the HIV genome, writing "This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019- nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature," meaning - it was unlikely to have occurred naturally.

Fast forward to new research by a team from Nankai University, which writes that COV-19 has an 'HIV-like mutation' that  allows it to quickly enter the human body by binding with a receptor called ACE2 on a cell membrane.

Quote:Other highly contagious viruses, including HIV and Ebola, target an enzyme called furin, which works as a protein activator in the human body. Many proteins are inactive or dormant when they are produced and have to be “cut” at specific points to activate their various functions.

When looking at the genome sequence of the new coronavirus, Professor Ruan Jishou and his team at Nankai University in Tianjin found a section of mutated genes that did not exist in Sars, but were similar to those found in HIV and Ebola. -SCMP

"This finding suggests that 2019-nCoV [the new coronavirus] may be significantly different from the Sars coronavirus in the infection pathway," reads the paper published this month on Chinaxiv.org - a platform used by the Chinese Academy of Sciences which releases research papers prior to peer-review.
"This virus may use the packing mechanisms of other viruses such as HIV," they added.

For those confused, what the latest scientific paper claims is that whereas the Coronavirus may indeed contain a specific HIV-like feature that makes it extremely infectious, that was the result of a rather bizarre "mutation." However, since the scientists did not make the scandalous claim that Chinese scientists had created an airborne version of HIV, but instead blamed a mutation, they will likely not be forced to retract it, even if it the odds of such a "random" mutation taking place naturally are extremely small.

As a reminder, the running narrative is that the new coronavirus lie dormant in bats somewhere between 20 and 70 years, then 'crossed over' to humans through and unknown species - possibly a Pangolin - before it emerged at a Wuhan, China meat market roughly 900 feet from a level-4 bioweapons lab.

And what were they researching at said lab? Among other things - why Ebola and HIV can lie dormant in bats without causing diseases.

According to the new study, the 'mutation' can generate a structure known as a cleavage site in the new coronavirus' spike protein, SCMP reports. "Compared to the Sars’ way of entry, this binding method is “100 to 1,000 times” as efficient, according to the study."

Quote:The virus uses the outreaching spike protein to hook on to the host cell, but normally this protein is inactive. The cleavage site structure’s job is to cheat the human furin protein, so it will cut and activate the spike protein and cause a “direct fusion” of the viral and cellular membranes. -SCMP

(a recent paper published by Dr. Zhou Peng of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, meanwhile, is "Immunogenicity of the spike glycoprotein  of Bat SARS-like coronavirus.")

According to the report, a follow-up study from a Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhn confirmed Nankai University's findings.

Quote:The mutation could not be found in Sars, Mers or Bat-CoVRaTG13, a bat coronavirus that was considered the original source of the new coronavirus with 96 per cent similarity in genes, it said.

This could be “the reason why SARS-CoV-2 is more infectious than other coronaviruses”, Li wrote in a paper released on Chinarxiv on Sunday.

Meanwhile, a study by French scientist Etienne Decroly at Aix-Marseille University, which was published in the scientific journal Antiviral Research on February 10, also found a “furin-like cleavage site” that is absent in similar coronaviruses.

Chinese scientists speculate that drugs targeting the fuirn enzyme could potentially hinder the virus' replication inside the human body. Drugs up for consideration include "a series of HIV-1 therapeutic drugs such as Indinavir, Tenofovir Alafenamide, Tenofovir Disoproxil and Dolutegravir and hepatitis C therapeutic drugs including Boceprevir and Telaprevir," according to Li's study.

The conclusion is in line with several reports from doctors who self-administered HIV drugs after testing positive for coronavirus, however there have been no clinical tests to confirm the theory.

All perfectly "natural."
