This may have changed as we are still in the early stages. Are the numbers we are seeing around the world legit? Are they real? How does this pandemic compare with already existing diseases and viruses that have been around for quite a while? Is this hysteria, or necessary precaution? The new coronavirus is taking the world by storm, but there is some good news that’s come out recently.
The estimates of the death rate have significantly lowered, with some studies emphasizing a one percent death rate. Dr. Anthony Fauci, longtime director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, wrote (in the New England Journal of Medicine), that “the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%,” if we assume that “the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases.” According to John P.A. Ioannidis is professor of medicine, of epidemiology and population health, of biomedical data science, and of statistics at Stanford University and co-director of Stanford’s Meta-Research Innovation Center: This evidence fiasco creates tremendous uncertainty about the risk of dying from Covid-19. Reported case fatality rates, like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless. Patients who have been tested for SARS-CoV-2 are disproportionately those with severe symptoms and bad outcomes. As most health systems have limited testing capacity, selection bias may even worsen in the near future.
The one situation where an entire, closed population was tested was the Diamond Princess cruise ship and its quarantine passengers.
The case fatality rate there was 1.0%, but this was a largely elderly population, in which the death rate from Covid-19 is much higher. Projecting the Diamond Princess mortality rate onto the age structure of the U.S. population, the death rate among people infected with Covid-19 would be 0.125%. But since this estimate is based on extremely thin data — there were just seven deaths among the 700 infected passengers and crew — the real death rate could stretch from five times lower (0.025%) to five times higher (0.625%). It is also possible that some of the passengers who were infected might die later, and that tourists may have different frequencies of chronic diseases — a risk factor for worse outcomes with SARS-CoV-2 infection — than the general population. Adding these extra sources of uncertainty, reasonable estimates for the case fatality ratio in the general U.S. population vary from 0.05% to 1%. (source) What is happening right now may be unnecessary hysteria, at least if you compare the virus to other diseases and viruses that may even have a higher death rate. Ioannidis goes on to make the point that “locking down the world with potentially tremendous social and financial consequences may be totally irrational. It’s like an elephant being attacked by a house cat. Frustrated and trying to avoid the cat, the elephant accidentally jumps off a cliff and dies.” But better safe than sorry, right? If so, then why aren’t we taking the same measures for other diseases? It definitely raises a red flag. According to Dr. Ron Paul, “People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.” (source) Who knows? Italy is experiencing some of the worst of the pandemic.
They reported approximately 800 deaths Saturday and 4,825 overall. More deaths have been reported in Italy than in any other country. According to a study by the country’s national health authority, more than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions. More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.
The study provides inside as to why their death rate may be much higher compared to other countries. Right now, the virus has a very high survival rate, and it seems that the most vulnerable are the elderly and, again, those withy underlying medical conditions.
The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions. But again, who knows, we are still in the early stages of this. A group of medical doctors, healthcare providers and scientists met online March 17, 2020, to discuss the use of high dose intravenous vitamin C (IVC) in the treatment of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 patients. Dr. Enqian Mao was in attendance, he is the chief of emergency medicine department at Ruijin Hospital, a major hospital in Shanghai, affiliated with the Joatong University College of Medicine. Dr. Mao is also a member of the Senior Expert Team at the Shanghai Public Health Center, where all Covid-19 patients have been treated. Dr. Richard Cheng has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of China. We have been covering his updates as he is in direct contact with this treatment and isn’t simply an armchair scientist at the moment. We feel in this time this is a very important detail as he is seeing and hearing results first hand, not simply theoretically. Dr. Cheng was paramount in bringing high dose vitamin C to the table as part of potential treatment and prevention measures. Unfortunately in the West, this option is still being denied by much of mainstream media and governments are not talking about it. Instead, it’s fear and chaos which we do not feel serves anyone to stay healthy or get better. I believe this is a great aspect of this journey to reflect on as it tells us where loyalties lie when it comes to government and pharma. It also illustrates the power of fear and separation culture as opposed to unity. Last month, the US National Library of Medicine posted the information about their clinical trials on their website.
The title of one of the trials is “Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia.” The sponsor is ZhiYong Peng, and the responsible party is Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan University (ZNWU).
There are currently three going on. You can access updates from Dr. Cheng via his YouTube Channel. On his channel, he provides instruction with regards to dosage for those who want to use vitamin C to possibly help with warding off the virus. For anyone looking for a high-quality vitamin C, we have been using and recommending liposomal vitamin C.
There are many brands out there. We are using this one from PuraThrive as it is very high quality and has an incredible clinically proven absorption rate.
There are still a lot of unknowns here, there is a lot of controversy about the number of deaths that can really be ascribed to the epidemic. Testing is not very reliable and suffers many biases. According to Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, who had chaired the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Health Committee that called an emergency debate on the influence of the pharmaceutical industry in the declaration of the H1N1 flu pandemic by WHO in 2009, “the tests are currently not measuring the incidence of coronavirus diseases, but the activity of the specialists searching for them ( W.Wodarg “Without PCR-Tests There Would Be No Reasons For Special Alarms”, 1.3.20, wodarg.com.). At the end of the day, fear serves nobody. Perhaps this can be a wake up call for those who are not really taking care of their health, and encourage them to start making lifestyle changes. You can’t control what’s going on outside of you right now, so control what’s going on inside of you. That’s the best way to create and manifest change externally, but again, it all starts internally. Furthermore, one should think about where the government’s loyalty lies. Is it with pharmaceutical companies? this is a reflection for the people, where does government loyalty lie? Perhaps it’s with the industry that spends two times more than what any other lobby does in congress. Would it not be inspiring to see health leaders come on the news and say “Hey, we don’t know for sure if these things will work, just like any other drug or vaccine, but we do know they are harmless if done this way etc.” And then indicate to people how to eat properly, take vitamin C, herbs, and zinc. Why is the only answer here in North America always drugs and vaccines? Is our health care system really about health care, or something else? Something to think about...
