New Update: What You Need to Know About the Coronavirus
Updated: Feb 14, 2020
There is a lot of chatter about the coronavirus so I thought I would post my perspective which I hope will be helpful. There is a lot of confusion and even some panic that we are not getting the full story from the media outlets. So, this is an updated version.
First, this strain of coronavirus (CV) is reportedly one of 7 strains that can infect humans, but there are many more that infect animals as well. Generally speaking, coronaviruses are in the same category as other viruses that can cause cough/cold symptoms (c/c). Rhinoviruses cause the vast majority of c/c symptoms (up to about 70%) followed by CV (10-20%) and flu viruses (10-15%). Some c/c viral strains are particularly virulent. SARS, H1N1, and others are examples. The Wuhan CV is more virulent than most c/c viruses as well, which is also complicated by the fact that it can spread BEFORE symptoms are seen so it is hard to quarantine people or communities. But the Wuhan CV is reportedly unique and more dangerous. James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, research scientist who has studied the DNA sequence of this strain also reported that this virus may be lab modified. On 1-30-2020, he reported that the virus apparently has markers of a man-made vector technology inserted into its genetic makeup to make it perform better – whatever that may mean. Since then, he has published another statement on 02/09/2020 that new findings show that the virus has a fingerprint of a particularly pathogenic strain of the virus from HK-3 2005 CV strain and that the the virus was not the result of being recombined in the lab. Dr. Lyons-Weiler plans to publish his findings after some additional research.
But there is more. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas leads the Senate Intelligence Committee, and the Armed Services Committee, where he chairs the Air Land Power Subcommittee. He is slamming the Chinese Communist Party over the coronavirus outbreak. He also suggests the deadly virus could be a man-made bioweapon that leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. “This coronavirus is a catastrophe on the scale of Chernobyl for China,” he said, referencing the 1986 Russian nuclear disaster. “But actually, it's probably worse than Chernobyl, which was localized in its effects..." he said in last Thursday's Senate hearing with the leaders of military combatant commands. "The coronavirus could result in a global pandemic. Wuhan has China's only biosafety level 4 super-laboratory that works with the world's most deadliest pathogens to include, yes, coronavirus.” He also said that China has quarantined over 60 million people and closed down all schools indefinitely. He recommends stopping all commercial travel from China to the American mainland until we can get to the bottom of China's incompetence and deceit on this matter. To make matters worse, this is not the first time that a deadly virus has emerged out of China's research facilities. In 2004, a SARS leak (similar to this strain of CV) occurred at the Beijing Institute of Virology.
The high security research facility is about 20 miles from the epicenter of the Wuhan outbreak. The two main suggestions that are that the facility is conducting vaccine development, or it is a bio-weapons facility, or both. Note: we should all realize that world domination efforts in the very near future will not be conducted so much with troops, guns and missiles, but mass destruction and takeover will be accomplished using microbes - mostly genetically altered viruses. Many researchers are now very concerned at what might be unleashed by playing with viruses. The concerns range from accidental release causing global infection to creating a viral warfare monster that can’t easily be stopped.
Was the Wuhan virus accidentally release from this high security facility? Or… on purpose to test its bioweapon potential and/or stress the need for another vaccine? I don’t know but I do have my antennas up and you should too. On this note, one more thing is interesting. It has been reported that a patent was filed (and subsequently granted as I understand it) in 2015 by the Pirbright Institute for the live attenuated virus for the purpose of creating a vaccine, reportedly for use in animals. While a lot of people are trying to connect it with the current outbreak, it is uncertain if this has anything to do with this particular strain of CV. The mainstream media reports that it does not.
There was also a CV infection preparedness summit held just this last fall (Event 201). Why in October and why the CV? Just something to think about without jumping to conclusions. But the whole Wuhan incident IS something to be concerned about since a high security research facility is located so close to the epicenter of the infection and the coronavirus involved is a highly pathogenic strain. It is a fair assumption that the viral infection most likely came from the high security lab. But how and why? Keep alert on this issue! What a mess!!
But how about solutions to protect ourselves from this virus or other infectious viruses? First, about the microbes that are in our body already. It is estimated that we have more microbes (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.) in our body than human cells, and we have an estimated 50 trillion of those. Most everyone gets along just fine when the body is healthy. Bacteria live in the same neighborhood as viruses and even help protect each other. When we are not healthy from poor nutrition and we are exposed to harmful chemicals in our food, water, and air, the body's stress response goes into effect and the immune system goes on hyper-alert, both of which weaken our response to infectious microbes. The chemicals from food and water can also destroy the natural microbial balance throughout the body, especially the gut microbiome which then further lowers the body's natural resistance to infection.
So, good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help protect us from infection. More awareness and protective measures are needed on a daily basis in today's toxic world, but especially when there is an outbreak like the coronavirus. Remember, there are NO antibiotics or vaccines to kill the virus. But, there ARE natural options to support the immune system. Not to say that any of these will necessarily protect against coronavirus, but this is what my family chooses when bacterial or viral threats are imminent and even during the entire cough, cold, and flu season - we use a variety of essential oils products, elderberry syrup, garlic, honey, Vit C (whole food source) supplements, Vits A & D and more which are rapidly becoming mainstream now that science is confirming their protective health benefits. I hope this helps.
