COVID VIRUS: Where It Came From and What We Should Do
On this episode of Living Beyond 120, Mark and Dr. Gladden are joined by Chris Howard, PhD (Biochemistry) and Lynn Howard, MD (Pathogenic Microbiology in Infectious Disease). They take a deep exploration into the origin and pathology of the SARS COVID 2- the actual name of the virus as opposed to COVID-19, which is the name of the disease. They begin with the how the virus came into existence – is it a natural occurring phenomenon or is it man-made? They then go onto where the origin point of the SARS COVID 2 virus is – exactly where in the world did this virus originate? They also explore the question of when the virus started infecting humans. Next they delve into the treatment of the virus, discussing the benefits of Hydroxychloroquine, as well as that of Zinc, Selenium, and Vitamins D and C. They also investigate the fact that some people that contract the virus have no need of treatment. They then explain the idea of herd immunity; in a large population there are fewer high-risk people overall, the infection rates drop, and the disease peters out. Vaccinations are then brought into the discussion. They bring into question the accuracy and validity of the current testing procedures and how the tests can give a false positive result secondary to other ailments that a person could be suffering from. The episode concludes with State orders of staying quarantined in your homes and how this really does nothing to combat the virus; but instead weakens the immune system’s ability to combat it .
