COVID-19 Coronavirus: Unanswered Questions

KEY POINTS

  • Modern medicine fails to heed call for vitamin D supplementation; deficiency harms dark-skinned individuals who have the lowest vitamin D levels.
  • Where did the forgotten flu go this year? It’s actually 6.2% of respiratory infections.
  • Patients with pre-existing autoimmune diseases should be considered high risk and given nutrients that normalize the immune response (vitamins A, D, resveratrol and zinc).
  • Is COVID-19 coronavirus man-made? The evidence points in that direction.
  • In COVID-19 coronavirus infection the 480 million alveoli in the lung that facilitate transfer of oxygen to the blood circulation are blocked. Therefore, poorly oxygenated blood is in circulation, resulting in heart, brain, kidney problems and micro-clotting in the blood itself. So COVID-19 looks like many diseases but is actually one with consequent multi-organ failure.  Financially-strapped hospitals shift their insurance billings for pneumonia and influenza treatment to COVID-19 for which there is higher reimbursement.
  • In comparison with 1967-68 Hong Kong flu, which killed 6 out of 10,000 Americans, COVID-19 coronavirus is reported to kill 2 out of 10,000. There was no lockdown in 1967-68.

Vitamin D to the rescue not!

THE MIRACULOUS RESULTS... Bowles, Jeff T Buy New $3.99 (as of 04:54 EST - Details) Both the WHO and CDC ignored a plea published in the British Medical Journal on February 28, 2020 by researcher Robert Brown, for widespread vitamin D testing and vitamin supplementation to head off a growing pandemic of COVID-19 coronavirus.  It is widely known that dark-skinned people produce far less vitamin D from solar UV radiation.

Brown noted Somalis in Stockholm, Sweden, only represent 0.84% of the population but 40% of the COVID-19 deaths there were among Somalis.

Brown also noted that among hundreds of women age 60-80 years tested in Italy, vitamin D blood levels were lower than 5 nanograms/milliliter blood sample in 27% and lower than 12 nanograms in as many as 76%.  Twenty (20) nanograms is the lowest level of normal.  Italy is a hot-spot for COVID-19 deaths.

His call for urgent action has, so far, gone ignored.   Sunlight is such a strong preventive against infectious disease of any kind that one researcher calls it “heliovaccination.”

ZeroHedge.com published a report showing there are 34 countries where a single case of COVID-19 coronavirus infection has yet to be reported.  Most are island nations near the equator where solar UV intensity is high and therefore vitamin D blood levels are also elevated.

How many more studies have to be published before the obvious becomes health policy?  Screen vulnerable populations (dark skin, nursing home, hospitalized) for vitamin D deficiency and correct with food supplements.

Louisiana State University researchers report 85% of COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit (100% under age 75) were vitamin D-deficient compared to 57% of patients in normal hospital beds.

Sunlight therapy is reported to have reduced deaths among hospital patients from 40 per cent to about 13 per cent in the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic.  But this is a forgotten lesson. NOW Supplements, Vitam... Best Price: null Buy New $9.92 ($0.04 / Count) (as of 04:43 EDT - Details)

Where did the flu go this year?

A Stanford University study answers that question.  The Center For Infectious Disease Research Policy (CIDRAP) cites a Stanford University, published in the Journal of the American Medical Assn., mouth swab study of patients that exhibited symptoms (cough, ever, shortness of breath) that revealed among 1217 specimens taken from 1206 patients, only 116 (9.5%) were confirmed to be COVID-19 and 318 (26.1%) for non-coronavirus pathogens (rhinovirus, enterovirus, respiratory syncytial virus and non-SARS coronavirus).  What caused symptoms among the other 64.4% of patients goes unexplained.

In other words, 90.5% of patients with symptoms were NOT COVID-19.  Influenza A&B represented 69 of 1101 symptomatic patients (6.2%).  But one can imagine many of these patients feared they had COVID-19.  These numbers reveal only a small percentage of sick patients have lab positive influenza (6.2%) but over 100 million Americans get flu shots.  COVID-19 is only slightly more prevalent than the flu (9.5% vs. 6.2%).

Autoimmune individuals = high-risk for COVID-19 death

Researchers report autoimmune antibodies were prevalent in 91.9% (10 of 11 cases) of COVID-19 patients who required intensive care unit care, but in only 36.4% (4 of 11) patients with mild symptoms.  Autoimmunity is indicative of severity in COVID-19 casesVitamin A, Vitamin D, zinc and resveratrol normalize the immune response, contrary to immune suppressant drugs that increase vulnerability to infection.

Is COVID-19 man-made?

How Not To Die With Tr... Henriques, Tiago Best Price: $18.23 Buy New $17.97 (as of 08:00 EST - Details) A frequent question received in my email box is whether the COVID-19 coronavirus is man-made or a natural mutation (act of God)?  Members of the Bioterrorism Preparedness & Response Program list clues that an epidemic is a terrorist attack.  Among the 17 clues are “an unusual or unexplained illness” that affects a “disparate population” with an “unusual pattern of death,” illness in “non-contiguous areas,” (Iran, China, U.S.), with large numbers of death, deadly strains, failure of patients to respond to treatment.  The current pandemic meets all 17 criteria described.

There is record that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated: “This matter is going forward…. We are in a live exercise here to get this right,” referring to a war-game like practice for a pandemic.  The CDC also advertised for “quarantine managers” in November of 2019, months before there was a lockdown in the U.S.   Oddly, by 2004 SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) coronavirus vanished completely, with no explanation as to why?  The WHO takes credit for this.  Was it being distributed to infect populations and then withdrawn by a bioterrorist?  Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s infectious disease specialist, says this coronavirus (COVID-19) “doesn’t just disappear.”  He should know.

Another intriguing online report emanates from American author Nathan Rich, who asks why a mysterious lung syndrome linked with vaping, which has the same symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus symptoms, suddenly boomed the moment COVID-19 cases were reported in the U.S.

Rich wonders if COVID-19 leaked out of a military lab in Maryland, a lab that was closed down by the CDC.  Two nursing homes located nearby the military laboratory reported lung disease deaths in the summer of 2019.  It is a very compelling report.

There is criticism of the World Health Organization of its early handling of the coronavirus outbreak.  No travel bans and no human-to-human transmission (Jan. 14).  But the US allowed Chinese-born U.S. citizens to fly back home to the U.S. and careful monitoring showed the virus didn’t spread beyond immediate family members.  There was confirmation of human-to-human transmission by Beijing on January 20.  The FDA withheld imported testing kits in port and CDC-issued testing kits were contaminated (intentional), so the early stages of COVID-19 spread could not be ascertained.  Intentional?

Everything is COVID-19

According to the Centers for Disease Control guidance, “Where a definite diagnosis of COVID-19 cannot be made, it is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.’  …. “It is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate without this confirmation (testing) if the circumstances are compelling with a reasonable degree of certainty.”

Because, in severe cases of COVID-19 coronavirus lung congestion a gooey substance called hyaluronan is being produced in excess, the forced pressure of oxygen from the ventilator further presses hyaluronan into the alveolar space where oxygen is transferred to the blood circulation.  There are ~480-million of these alveoli.

Once blocked the blood is being pumped without sufficient oxygen which induces small blood clots (disseminated intravascular coagulation) that can then induce strokes, heart and kidney damage.  This phenomenon appears to be puzzling to physicians.  This is not heart, kidney, lung disease per se – it is COVID-19 resulting in an over-healing response in the lungs that blocks entry of oxygen into the circulatory system resulting in damage to these organs.

What appears to be happening is that hospitals are in a world of hurt financially as the public is avoiding hospitalization for fear becoming infected and because elective surgery is not being scheduled.  To make up for this financial crisis, everything is being up-coded to ICD U07.1 (International Statistical Classification of Diseases), a code for insurance billing purposes.  It is cited that hospitals are reimbursed $13,000 for pneumonia and ~$40,000 for COVID-19 when the U07.1 code is documented on the death certificate.

In fine print, the CDC offers this caveat regarding classification of lung disease: BRI Resveratrol - 1200... Buy New $16.99 (as of 05:25 EST - Details)

Deaths due to COVID-19 may be misclassified as pneumonia or influenza deaths in the absence of positive test results, and pneumonia or influenza may appear on death certificates as a comorbid condition. Additionally, COVID-19 symptoms can be similar to influenza-like illness, thus deaths may be misclassified as influenza. Thus, increases in pneumonia and influenza deaths may be an indicator of excess COVID-19-related mortality.

I would hope this doesn’t give license for the CDC to play fast and loose with these mortality numbers.  It appears it does.

If this is proven to be true in post-epidemic audits, America is experiencing a great travesty as hospitals plunder insurance pools via diagnostic miscoding in an attempt to survive financially.  The public is then misled into believing a great many people are dying of this COVID-19 monster virus and remain frightened and in self-quarantine for no good reason.

More or less deaths?

Researchers at Yale School of Public Health report increases in death rates from diagnosed pneumonia and influenza are indicative of unreported COVID-19 deaths.  These researchers claim increases in all-cause death are indicative of ~1.5 times higher death rate for COVID-19 than presently reported.

Yes, there is lag time as death certificates are filed late and aren’t immediately compiled by CDC.  Some people may die at home and their death certificate is not immediately forwarded electronically as they are by hospitals.  There just may be a lag in reporting, not in actual deaths.  So much for Yale stoking the coals of fear.

Coronavirus is widely spread but results in only a 3/10ths of one-percent mortality rate (Los Angeles county April 21, 2020),  around the mortality rate of the flu.

Let this almost harmless virus have its way, the healthy infected develop natural antibodies without the need for a vaccine, and we go on living our lives.

Focus on high-risk groups to save lives (blacks, hospital workers, nursing home patients).  For the healthy, infection breeds antibodies and possible life-long protection.  Locking down the entire populace in a futile attempt to spare the lives of high-risk individuals while leaving the masses totally dependent upon an imagined future vaccine to avoid infection is complete folly.  The more lockdown, the greater the chance of COVID-19 returning in November.  The virologists know this.  They are priming the demand for a vaccine.  Don’t be their victim as they experiment with the entire US population.

Hong Kong flu 1967-68

The Hong Kong flu killed an estimated 100,000 Americans out of a population of 175 million (almost 6 out of 10,000) compared to ~60,000 US deaths* for COVID-19 (almost 2 out of 10,000) so far among a population of 327 million.  *Many of these deaths are questioned as to whether they died with or of COVID-19).  There were no lockdowns, no quarantines.
