I suggest researching vitamin D (not a vitamin, a hormone) and its ability to reduce severity on COVID-19 and reduce the possibility of contracting coronavirus. Best wishes.
The formula my doctor has made up for his patients contains Vit. D. also A. Another formula from him has L-Lysine, Zinc, Folic Acid and Selenium. I think everything we can do to support the immune system benefits us. D is a big one!

A second of our sons, Kagen, tested positive today. His younger brother lives at home with us but spent last weekend with Kagen .... Now I'm getting nervous. I have rheumatoid arthritis and don't need any additional pain!😱
Kagen finishes his quarantine tomorrow. He doesn't live at home as he is 27, thankfully his brother who does live at home, my husband and I are all feeling fine!😍😊🍾🥳. Thank you everyone for your support!!

My Covid test just came back negative! I'm so relieved that I wasn't a risk to my coworkers or family. I still have no symptoms, but my roommate hasn't been able to smell or taste anything for a few days. She says her diet has become very low-sugar, because there's no point. A mutual friend of my roommate asked us what we need for groceries, and then bought them and dropped them off for us earlier this afternoon (it's after 11pm here now).

I was speaking with a friend last night. Her twin sister is dying from breast cancer and is on home-hospice in a rural area of New York (catskills). I haven't done any traveling, so I didn't know there were traveling rules (living in a bubble I guess lol).

So, in order for her to go see her sister before she dies, she needs to test negative to enter the state (understandable), but then quarantine for 3 days, then on the 4th day test negative again.

So I told her to drive up. She doesn't want to do the long drive and thinks there is some kind of KGB force waiting for out of state cars at the border. I have taken the trip in the past plenty of times by car to PA, so I get it with the drive. But its not terrible. Plus I wouldn't be real comfortable with flying anyway right now.

Anyway, she is going to fly. I told her that she could just go to PA and just drive up there. She doesn't want to break any rules. I did some research, the only requirement for PA is to have documentation of a negative test to enter and you don't have to quarantine.

New York doesn't have what the consequences are listed on the DOH website (that I could find), but PA is $25-300 fine if you don't have proof of a neg test and then fail to quarantine.

I get it. Its a pandemic, and normally would just say to obide by the rules. But I feel this is an exception. She and her husband tested negative last week and they are going for another test today before they travel. Even if you were exposed on the airplane, the 4th day test is pointless because your virus load is not going to be high enough for detection, especially with a 40% accuracy rate of the pcr to begin with.

She doesn't think she is going to make it in time. Sadly, her trip might only serve to make final arrangements. Personally, if I have two negative tests, then I am going to see my sister.

I had an interesting conversation with a nurse tonight. He is enrolled in a doctorate program, and he and some colleagues submitted a study on the effects of smoking on corona virus. I have heard this before a long time ago, but shrugged it off as fake news.

These guys have lots and lots of facts and figures. Less than 10% of the WORLDs positive corona cases are smokers. That means 90% of all cases are non-smokers. In China, about 50% of all men smoke, and their male smoker corona cases are nearly non-existent....like 1%

At first they thought it was the nicotine, but studies proved that wrong. A lot of theories were disproven, but they think they have come up with the reason...the high temperature of what is being inhaled, and it is not just cigarette smokers: it is vapers, marijuana smokers...basically anything that is a higher temperature when you inhale it, because corona cannot survive at a certain temperature (I forget what he said that temp was). He said cigarette smoke is inhaled at 130 degrees (which as a smoker, I don't think I am inhaling 130 degree cigarette smoke. I could be wrong, there's no way for me to tell lol).

Obviously a nurse with a doctorate is not going to purport smoking as a prevention for corona, but his proposal was to invent a product made out of something safe that you can inhale, like vegetable oil based or sterile water/saline based solution that can be used with a vape or some sort of steam, maybe as a prophylactic: come out of the supermarket, hit your corona vape lol.

The University of Miami shot it down because they don't want to advocate smoking.

They are prepared to take this idea down different avenues with all their research and facts, including cigarette or vape manufacturers...they all have labs too.

After I got home from work I did a little quick google research of my own, most of the articles are either old, or say how bad it COULD be for smokers. But I did find a few that agree with this, WebMD of all sites LOL. But then there was also a study done in Paris. That article was old, and they planned, back then, to give hospital workers nicotine patches (because last year they thought that nicotine was the reason for the phenomenon), so it's not a hairbrain idea these guys have. It seems to be substantiated. These are educated people with the means to do medical research.

After I make some soap, I am going to do deeper research if its not too late. I guess good places to start are NIH, WHO, CDC if anybody else wants to do some digging of their own.
