Coronavirus

About time I did a post about Coronavirus! It's been all over the news. The WHO has declared a global pandemic for the virus. There's three types of people who fit into the whole Coronavirus pandemic: the first are those who say this is like the flu and don't worry/care, the second are those thinking this is the apocalypse, and the third say it's neither the flu nor the apocalypse, but we should still be wary. Everyone is viewing this differently, and now, it's become a political issue. China is now being accused of lying and covering up. Celebrities and politicians have gotten it, and hospitals didn't prepare for a worst-case scenario like an outbreak. Colleges have made students go online in the middle of the semester. Regular schools have been shut down for a month. I was glad to see President Trump call for a national state of emergency, so state and local governments can get financial assistance. As for the vaccine being created, I'm 50/50 on it, but that's a discussion for another time.

Let's start out simple with what Covid-19 is. Back in December, Wuhan, China began to notice many citizens getting ill. It spread quickly through interactions with others. Anyone who traveled to China had gotten this illness. People started to die from the sickness, and when the United States had its first confirmed case, panic set in. Here's what I have learned. According to the World Health Organization, 80%-84% of people who get infected with Covid-19 only experience mild symptoms (i.e. fever, dry cough, shortness of breath), then 14% have more severe issues, and 5% had critical issues. If you're elderly, sickly, or both, you're at a higher risk, especially if you traveled to any of the affected countries (i.e. China, Italy). They need to be cared for. But most of us who might get it will recover. Except abortion, according to the CDC, the leading causes of death in 2019 in the US were heart disease (647,457), cancer (almost 600,000), and abortion murdered over 1 million babies. So far this year, over 8 million babies were killed by abortion worldwide. To see the numbers climb so rapidly made my stomach turn. The flu killed thousands last year, yet no one panicked, but mainstream media doesn't tell you that.



What I don't buy into is the mass hysteria MSM and the Democrats are pushing. They keep claiming that Republicans are the reason nothing is being done, or that Trump is "racist" (as per usual) for banning travels to most countries. Instead of saving Americans' lives, they want to fight Trump at every turn. This is simple proof at how the government can cause everything to be shut down in our lives. Even this whole thing with toilet paper. Mainstream media says there's a shortage of toilet paper worldwide, yet suppliers say it's not true. I read an article from Facebook that made a lot of sense. Even though it's a lie that we're running out of toilet paper, why do they say that? They want to see how quickly Americans and chaos ensues. That’d require martial law (shutdown of the government). A coup could then happen with someone like Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders, then the elites would have control of the nation. It's that easy. That's why you've got people who don't care enough about Covid-19; everything MSM says is garbage, so no one takes them seriously. NYT originally called Coronavirus "Wuhan Virus," yet when Trump does it, it's racist; MSNBC has said the same. "Do as I say, not as I do." Democrats will do anything to push their agenda, including making a resolution for Covid-19 to allow taxpayer-funded abortion, but AOC says its pro-lifers who are pushing their ideologies.


I don't think this is what's going to "kill mankind," but I also think you should be cautious. Don't go out as often to avoid anyone who could be worse-off infected. You should be stocked up on food and other essential items, in case of an emergency. Clean every surface, wash your hands, and start taking supplements or foods that will build your immune system. A strong immune system will fight off a disease better. Here are tips to build your immune system:
  • Get sleep.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Eat foods high in antioxidants (i.e. any berries, purple fruits/vegetables).
  • Use antimicrobial oils like oregano, thyme or lemon.
  • Eat foods good for your gut. A healthy gut is an important part of your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C.
  • Make/buy elderberry syrup.
These are effective ways to prevent sickness. I got sick with a sinus cold (allergies are bad in Florida), but I didn’t get as sick as I normally would BECAUSE I’ve been building my immune system (but keep my brother in your prayers, he’s still sick with his sinuses).

I don’t think Coronavirus should be ignored. It’s affecting everyone, even those who aren’t sick. Our lives have been temporarily changed. This won't last forever. Just remain calm. Keep our President in your prayers because he is getting relentless criticism. There is no need to say, “It’s the end of mankind as we know it.” Truthfully, I don't know what will happen in the next month. Things are changing every week. Just pray, have supplies, build your immune system, and stay inside for the 15 days. We’ll get through this, just like we got through other diseases in the past. To close, I saw this on Facebook, and it's encouraging for these worrying times: "The same God who protected Daniel in the lion's den will protect you and your family from the virus and any other diseases."
