Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about COVID-19:
Updated 20 March 2020
We will update this based on the questions we receive at our hotline email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclaimer: We are giving our best answer based on our own knowledge experience and practice, some may differ from the common western answers and the best we know now. Understand that this is unknown territory and what seems true today can be different by the evolving science and facts and statistics.
Q: Hasn’t this been around for years?
- While the Coronavirus family has existed for years…and is responsible for 10-15% of the seasonal flu viruses, COVID-19 is 100% new. It actually has very suspicious signs of being a modified bioweapon (CRISPR Gene splicing artifacts, HIV RNA inserts, etc). This strain has only been around since Oct/Nov of 2019 at the latest.
- If this is a bioweapon, it explains why it is more highly contagious and would support the many conspiracy theories. (See the movie Contagion and Pandemic.) Bill Gates has warned against this happening many times. There are many scenarios where this has been done on purpose and others where it was by accident. Also, the relationship with 5G is quite strange and unexplainable. But, anytime the human body is exposed to a new form of radiation a pandemic occurs.
- Humans have zero immunity to this virus family. It has primarily affected wild animals in the past. We’re able to fight off new flu viruses such as H1N1 more effectively because our bodies have seen similar viruses before.
Q: But the Flu kills more people, right?
- The flu has a mortality rate of 0.1% (1 in 1000 people die). COVID-19, depending on country demography and level of medical care, conservatively has a mortality rate of 2%. It can go much higher (likely as high as 10-15%) because of lack of ICU beds. Also, the Chinese data cannot be trusted. Yes, the flu has “killed more people,” but the flu is infecting billions of people a year WORLDWIDE, and this has inflected at most 100k-200k so far…and it has the potential to affect 60 to 80% of the population.
- There’s something called R0 (R-naught) that is a rate of transmissivity (contagiousness) of viruses. The flu has a 1.28 R0 meaning that every 1 person who gets the flu, on average spreads to 1.28 other people. COVID-19 has a 4-6 R0 based on current data, meaning it spreads to 4-6 people for each person infected. The math on that is ASTOUNDING… after 10 hops instead of 15… 15… people being infected with the flu… COVID-19 would have over 30,000 people infected. When the media compares flu to COVID-19, they’re comparing 15 people to 30,000 and 0.1% death rate to 20-30x higher death rate of 2-3% (at a minimum). They’re trying to prevent panic, but they’re also preventing people from taking basic responsibility for their own safety and well being. By now, it is clear that this is much worse than the flu and the biggest calamity we’ve seen in our lifetimes.

Q: Big Pharma will save us with a vaccine!?
- The likelihood of a vaccine that works in the near term is extremely low. They’ve never successfully created a vaccine for any other viruses in the Coronavirus family. The vaccines tested in the past for similar viruses have resulted in the body reacting similarly to the real virus creating cytokine storms and killing subjects.
- There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this disease. The next best thing is to become as healthy as possible, detoxifying your body, and gaining mental/emotional preparedness that some family members may die. The worst is still to come.
Q: What are the drug/vaccine prospects?
- Investigational therapies include antiviral remdesivir, which is currently being investigated in several clinical trials, lopinavir/ritonavir (Kaletra), a protease inhibitor used to treat HIV, as well as the development of monoclonal antibodies from the serum of recovered patients.
- Several companies and public health agencies have vaccines in development, including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Phase I trials for a vaccine are likely a couple months away, with a timeline of 12-18 months for a vaccine to be ready for wide-scale deployment.
Q: Can homeopathy make a homeopathic vaccine?
- In homeopathy, it is possible to make a homeopathic dilution of the Coronavirus and use this to prepare the body for the virus and alert the immune system. In Brazil, homeopathic vaccines have been proven to work and often have been more effective than the normal vaccine. The Russian Med. Dr. Korsakov prepared autovaccinations during the WWII on the battlefield, and this has been proven to be very effective. Western medicine considers this not to be scientifically backed and does not accept this method. We have created something in this category and even though we cannot make any claims whatsoever, it is something worth checking out. Because the virus is so dangerous, special frequencies are used to counteract the virus frequencies. This can sometimes cause like symptoms of the virus, but this is just a temporary side effect that may result in immunity. You can ask for the special treatment we have developed as what you can call an Antiviral frequency called Antiviral support. These are special frequencies that support the body to fight viruses. It consists of 5 Remedies.
Disclaimer: there is no medical proof of homeopathy’s effect, there is no guarantee. We recommend it and use it ourselves. You can find this on www.optimaformula.nl
Q: So, how is this going to affect me then?
- Quarantines: For the first time in 100 years the US has forcibly quarantined more than a few people at once already. DOD has officially started building quarantine facilities near major airports. A responsible person would be prepared to shelter at home for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
- Supply chain disruptions: Don’t count on instantly getting any of the “Just in Time” delivery items that we take for granted now. There is at least a 5-9 day life span of COVID-19 on surfaces and possibly as high as 24 days in colder weather. Packages coming from overseas may soon have quarantine periods or decontamination processes they must go through.
Q: What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19?
- Symptoms can present itself as mild to severe. The most common symptoms can include respiratory and breathing difficulties, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Q: Is COVID-19 unstoppable at this point?
It seems this can last until summer and beyond. Nobody knows for sure. At this point, China is still not back at 100%, and a second wave of infections may be coming. Time will tell.
U.S. Virus Plan Anticipates 18-Month Pandemic and Widespread Shortages
The 100-page federal plan laid out a grim prognosis and outlined a response that would activate agencies across the government. Let’s pray this is too pessimistic.
Basic preparations are simple… in order of importance (IMHO)
- 30-180 days of food bought ahead of time… just stock up on non-perishables you would eat normally and won’t waste… plan for some variety and flexibility.
- Water bottles (30 days+) or better yet, filter your water.
- Water filters are the smartest move for filtering drinking water if needed.
- The best water filter we’ve found is a bit expensive: The BS Vital helps the recovery because of negative ions + extra absorbable calcium. But it assists in detoxification of the body (Side note: we are not affiliates for this company, we just own one of these filters.) The company is: SFPR (Smart Frequencies Professionals). Jacques Torn: +31 (0)6 53 80 1129. email@example.com www.sfpr.eu
- An alternative is to put Shungite in the water, this will help the body to detoxify and be better protected against electromagnetic stress.
- Basic medical supplies – you don’t want to go to the doctor unless you have COVID-19
- Treat at home supplies for flu symptoms. If you want the mainstream medications, this is what they use in USA: Robitussin DM, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc. I am not a fan of these medication. As a holistic doctor, I never prescribe chemicals to a sick body, but seek natural ways to stimulate the body’s own self healing mechanisms (read further).
- We use homeopathy and natural herbal remedies: Get Moringa leaves capsules, olive leaf capsules. We will have a homeopathic series ready. specially made for the COVID-19
- Elderberry (clinical studies showing a reduction in the intensity of flu), Chaga (from fruiting bodies – anecdotal reports of helping with symptoms and some clinical evidence regular to HIV similarities)
- Essential oils: Tea Tree oil (1 drop in 1 liter shake vigorously before taking), preferably not in plastic bottle, and sip every 15 minutes.
- Diffuser: Add peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus oils and take deep breaths every half hour or 15 minutes.
- Colloidal Silver: Dosage Guidelines: Take 45 minutes away from any food or drink. You can add the liquid to smoothies, juices, smoothie bowls, etc. You can also mix 2 oz. of colloidal silver liquid per gallon of water and sip throughout the day.
- N95/99/100 Masks, Gloves, etc.
- Minimal Supplements: Liposomal Vitamin C (6 grams minimum per day) check www.curesupport. A broad range of Supplements: Omega 3 oils, Full Vitamin range.
- Hand sanitizer, Tarps, Plastic sheets, Duct tape
- Cash on hand, Silver coins (pre-1964 quarters work great)
- Animal necessities… stock of Dog Food, Cat Food, etc.
- Additional bulk water storage… tub water storage bags, water bricks, stackable water tanks
Q. How is the virus spread?
- Person-to-person spread: This can happen in a few ways. The main source of transmission is between people who are in close contact or within 6 feet of each other. If an infected person coughs or sneezes, the respiratory droplets can land in noses, mouths, eyes or on the skin of another person and can easily be transmitted or spread.
- Spread by contact with infected surfaces: It is possible (not the most common way) for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. It is important that people who do not have the virus also wash their hands often. We are constantly touching our faces, rubbing out eyes and touching other people and objects.
Q. Can I prevent COVID-19 from spreading in my home and community?
- Yes! If you or someone you know has been confirmed or even suspected of having COVID-19, it is critical to take measures to keep the virus from spreading. If home care is what you prefer, there are few things you can do. You should isolate yourself right away. Go ahead and have an isolation plan ready so you don’t have to go out and shop for the things you need while infected.
- Isolation means DO NOT GO ANYWHERE. Separate yourself (or the infected person) in a room separate from everyone else in the home. This also includes using a separate bathroom from everyone else. This is not always practical, in most cases everyone will get infected, that is why we recommend having remedies ready to deal with this situation. This is phase 1 in our program of treatment. Phase 0 is preventative before you get infected.
- If you have to go to the doctor, make sure you call first and let them know you have the virus so they can take precautions prior to your appointment to prevent the spread of the virus.
- Wear a face mask if you do have to go out or if a family member has to see you while in isolation. In that case, they need to wear one as well.
- Use a tissue when you cough, or sneeze then throw it in the trash immediately. Then, wash your hands for 20 seconds.
- This goes without saying, but please do not share personal items while in isolation. This includes hairbrushes, drinking glasses, pens, utensils, pillows, etc. Use hand sanitizer or wash all personal items after use.
- Since you will be alone, make sure you are paying attention to your body. Monitor your temperature, breathing, or if you feel your situation is getting worse, contact your doctor immediately.
- To end isolation, make an appointment with your doctor to confirm you are no longer infected with COVID-19.
- The family of the person infected should closely monitor their own symptoms to make sure they were not infected.
Q. Can you kill the virus with heat?
- The virus is sensitive to heat
- Will hot drinking water help? The answer is NO, it takes 60 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes to kill 90% of the viruses. If you partake in saunas, you have to do it 3 times for 15 Minutes. There is no guarantee that this will be enough. Hot water will not kill the virus.
- The hairdryer blowing up your nose, is that useful? This technique would work if the virus was limited to the sinuses and is not yet in the throat or lungs. It would work for a beginning flu but again there is no guarantee that this is enough to kill the virus in the early stage, but absolutely worth a try. You have nothing to lose. They recommend using a water spray and alternating with the blower. I would add 1 drop of tea tree oil to that spray and some colloidal silver.
Q. Vitamin C high dosage: is this effective?
- In China, 12 patients were treated successfully with severe respiratory symptoms from COVID-19 in the ICU in the Tongji Hospital (www.orthomolecular.org) with intravenous infusion. This treatment strengthens the antiviral activity of the immune system and prevents and heals lung failure. The Chinese authorities brought 50 tons of Vitamin C to Wuhan. In S-Korea (Daegu Hospital), all staff and patients get high dosages of C. Corona patients get 30.000 mg per infusion. Some were cured in two days! A protocol used by prof. dr. Zhiyong Peng is 24.000 mgr. per day by infusion.
- Our recommendation is to start as soon as possible with taking high doses of oral vitamin C: start at 6000 mgs. (spread over the day) and increase each day with 1000 mgs. until your stools become really soft and lower than 1000 mgs. and stay on that dose. There are no side effects.
- Can you do this with kiwi or lemons or oranges? Answer is that if you are willing to eat 10 kilos of kiwi a day, good luck.
- Does the brand of Vitamin C matter, and should it contain bioflavonoids as well? Should it be from natural sources? The answer is: this is not about Vitamin C deficiency or supplementation; this is an effect of Ascorbic acid (pure Vitamin C without anything else). Cheap brands are as good. Some will cause an acidic feeling or reflux in the stomach. Buffered C is better, capsules or tablets are ok, you can best take then after a meal and spread over the day, that will dampen the acidity a lot.
- Will your urine turn yellow or brown? No, that is Vitamin B not C.
Q. What about mild or asymptomatic cases of COVID-19?
- A case study seemed to confirm the presence of asymptomatic transmission within China, where a woman was afebrile with no chest CT abnormalities or laboratory abnormalities. She did not develop the virus, while five of her relatives did.
- An earlier report out of Germany found a woman traveling to Germany from China with vague symptoms resulting in a cluster of cases arising out of that meeting.
- The big unknown, however, is how common it may be for people to become infected but with symptoms too mild to seek treatment. Currently, detection is based on molecular testing, which performed only on individuals who come into contact with the healthcare system. The prevalence of such mild or asymptomatic infections won’t be known until an inexpensive serological test, detecting antibodies to the virus that signal previous exposure, is available for use with routine blood draws. Thus, the extent of exposure in the population may not be known for years.
Q. How is the disease treated?
- In China, researchers reported the majority of patients received IV antibiotics. They have also been treated with antiviral oseltamivir (Tamiflu), which is FDA approved to treat influenza, as well as supplemental oxygen. The truth is that antibiotics are not effective against viruses, this is bad medicine. Vitamin C is more effective. In Taiwan they give antiviral and anti-flu medicine and that seem to work.
Q. What is the prognosis for patients with COVID-19?
- Reports from China indicate disease is much more severe in older patients with the highest mortality rate among adults age 80 and older. Patients with other chronic diseases or heavy medical treatment (cancer) are also the most at risk. The disease appears to be less severe among younger patients. Although only limited data have been reported, children seem to acquire milder forms of the infection. In Europe that pattern is changing as more and more young people get sick and can die.
- There are no confirmed reports of the disease being transmissible via vertical transmission, from a pregnant woman to her baby during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Q. What are the long-term after effects of COVID-19?
- It is unclear whether or how often COVID-19 survivors will experience persistent pulmonary or other problems, or for how long. Many patients have remained hospitalized with the illness for weeks outside of China, out of an abundance of caution and for public health reasons.
Q. Are there any therapies to prevent the COVID-19?
- While some western, traditional or home remedies may provide comfort and alleviate symptoms of COVID-19, there is no evidence that current medicine can prevent or cure the disease. WHO does not recommend self-medication with any medicines, including antibiotics, as a prevention or cure for COVID-19. However, there are several ongoing clinical trials that include both western and traditional medicines. We had quite good results with frequency therapy (Healy-app) an app that emits healing frequencies after measuring the body’s state. You can get more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also we expect good results of high dosages of Vitamin C combined with elderberry and Antiviral support.
- No. The virus that causes COVID-19 and the one that caused the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003 are related to each other genetically, but the diseases they cause are quite different.
- SARS was more deadly but much less infectious than COVID-19. There have been no outbreaks of SARS anywhere in the world since 2003.
Q. Should I wear a mask to protect myself?
- Only wear a mask if you are ill with COVID-19 symptoms (especially coughing) or looking after someone who may have COVID-19. Disposable face masks can only be used once. If you are not ill or looking after someone who is ill then you are wasting a mask. There is a world-wide shortage of masks, so WHO urges people to use masks wisely.
- WHO advises rational use of medical masks to avoid unnecessary waste of precious resources and mis-use of masks.
- The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are: frequently clean your hands (with soap preferably), cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue and maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from people who are coughing or sneezing. See basic protective measures against the new coronavirus for more information.
- How to put on, use, take off and dispose of a mask?
- Remember, a mask should only be used by health workers, care takers, and individuals with respiratory symptoms, such as fever and cough.
- Before touching the mask, clean hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water
- Take the mask and inspect it for tears or holes.
- Orient which side is the top side (where the metal strip is).
- Ensure the proper side of the mask faces outwards (the coloured side).
- Place the mask to your face. Pinch the metal strip or stiff edge of the mask so it moulds to the shape of your nose.
- Pull down the mask’s bottom so it covers your mouth and your chin.
- After use, take off the mask; remove the elastic loops from behind the ears while keeping the mask away from your face and clothes, to avoid touching potentially contaminated surfaces of the mask.
- Discard the mask in a closed bin immediately after use.
- Perform hand hygiene after touching or discarding the mask – Use alcohol-based hand rub or, if visibly soiled, wash your hands with soap and water.
Q. How long does the virus survive on surfaces?
- It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).
- If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with simple disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.
Q. What things should I NOT do?
- The following measures ARE NOT effective against COVID-19 and can be harmful:
- Wearing multiple masks
- Taking antibiotics (See question 10 “Are there any medicines of therapies that can prevent or cure COVID-19?“)
- In any case, if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early to reduce the risk of developing a more severe infection and be sure to share your recent travel history with your healthcare provider.
Q. Can humans become infected from animal sources?
- Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in animals. Occasionally, people get infected with these viruses which may then spread to other people. For example, SARS-CoV was associated with civet cats and MERS-CoV is transmitted by dromedary camels. Possible animal sources of COVID-19 have not yet been confirmed.
- Ensure good food safety practices at all times. Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care to avoid contamination of uncooked foods and avoid consuming raw or undercooked animal products
- If you have any other questions send an email to email@example.com and we will ad your question to this list. Thank you!
Q. How can we protect ourselves against 5G & EMF?
- The Harmonic Quantum Resonance card. Specially made to protect against 5G Https://soulpath.be/product/5G/?ref=covid (also more information what this new card can do). It also increases the immune response.
- We believe Shungite can offer protection. (only found in Russia)
- Healy has programs against EMF
- Unplug Wifi during the night, turn your phones off, during the night is when you are the most vulnerable
Q: How long does the COVID-19 virus survive on clothing?
- “Preliminary research has suggested the virus can survive longer on harder surfaces like plastic and metal, this could be from a few hours to several days but no clear research on fabrics like clothing. However it is likely that the virus will not survive as long on soft surfaces.”
- Advice for washing clothes, especially if someone in the home has the Coronavirus: “If you are handling dirty laundry from a person who is confirmed or suspected to have coronavirus, you should wear disposable gloves if possible, if not – please wash your hands appropriately after handling their clothing before you touch your face or other surfaces.”
