Defense Boosters for Contagious Virus Outbreaks

The most effective defense against virus infections and infectious outbreaks,
such as the Coronavirus, is a healthy immune system

system is the best defense against viruses.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there is an
outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) Coronavirus. The new variant was first detected in
China. The virus has now been detected
in 60 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has
been named "SARS-CoV-2" and the disease it causes has been named
"Coronavirus Disease 2019" (abbreviated "COVID-19"). A virus is said to be pathogenic, or capable
of causing disease when it crosses from its usual host species or species to
humans. A contagion that becomes
widespread and difficult to control is a pandemic. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 killed millions
of people at a time when the health authorities, healthcare workers and the
medical research establishment was poorly equipped to handle it.
Coronavirus symptoms can show up anywhere from 2 to 14 days after
exposure. At the onset, the symptoms are like those of the common cold or flu,
- High Fever
- Shortness of breath
In the instance of elderly people with weakened immune systems, the
fever may rise to 104 °F (40 °C) or higher and the afflicted may experience
pneumonia, respiratory failure or septic shock. Infections range from mild to
serious. The virus can turn deadly if it leads to pneumonia, respiratory
failure, or septic shock.
The Public Health Department in Seattle, Washington reports that 9
elderly residents of the same "Life Care Center" nursing home are the
first to die in the United States.
According to Dr. Jeff Duchin, the King County Health Officer, the
deceased had health conditions and were treated at "Kirkland
Hospital" and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. These are the first known fatalities on
American soil. It is unknown at this
time where or how the deceased and those still being treated became exposed to
the virus. The Life Care Center nursing
home is on virtual lock-down after dozens of patients and staff showed symptoms
of the fast-spreading disease. The people
at the highest risk of the disease are older people in poor health and
healthcare staff. According to the CDC, younger people with
healthy immune systems are at low risk of infection, and if infected experience
mild symptoms; moreover they are unlikely to die from the infection.
On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency
Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a
"public health emergency of international concern" (PHEIC). On
January 31, 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex M. Azar II, declared
a public health emergency (PHE) for the United States to aid the nation's
healthcare community in responding to COVID-19.
Early on, many of the patients at the epicenter of the outbreak in
Wuhan, Hubei Province, China had links to a large seafood and live animal
market, suggesting animal-to-person spread (but speculation persists as the
Chinese Communist Party is holding back access and information). Later, a growing number of patients
reportedly did not have exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person
spread (Community Spread). Person-to-person spread was subsequently reported
outside Hubei and in countries outside China, including in the United States.
Some international destinations now have apparent community spread with the
virus that causes COVID-19, meaning some people have been infected who are not
sure how or where they became infected.
It is too early to determine how easily the Coronavirus spreads, and
how deadly it is compared to other common versions of the influenza virus that
affect the respiratory system.
To put the Coronavirus epidemic in perspective, the CDC reports that
between October 1, 2019, and February 22, 2020, up to 40 million people became
infected with influenza (flu) in the United States; that as many as 800,000
became hospitalized, and that up to 40,000 have died including 105 children
The Coronavirus has been slow to spread in the United States thanks to
an early ban on travel to and from Wuhan, China (the epicenter of the
contagion) and the United States imposed by President Trump. No effort to contain a contagious disease in
the United States or the world has ever included the level of expertise found in President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force.
Among the members of the Coronavirus Taskforce are:
- Dr. Anthony Fauci,
Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at
the National Institutes of Health
- Robert O'Brien,
Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs
- Dr. Robert Redfield,
Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

- Seema Verma,

- President Trump
nominated Vice President Mike Pence, the second-highest elected
representative in the nation, to coordinate between the Taskforce and the
There are no effective therapeutic medications for the Coronavirus or
viruses in general, although Remdesivir from Gileadscience is currently being
evaluated. On Monday, March 2, President
Trump met with executives of pharmaceutical companies from the United States,
and one from Israel, to discuss how to accelerate the development of
therapeutic remedies and a vaccine.
Present at Monday’s Whitehouse meeting were: Dr. John Shiver, of Sanofi; Leonard
Schleifer, CEO of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals; Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna;
Daniel O'Day, chairman, and CEO of Gilead, Paul Stoffels, chief scientific
officer, Johnson & Johnson; Dr. Anne Schchat, DCD deputy director; Stanley
Erck, CEO of Novorax; Debbie Brix, White House Coronavirus Taskforce response
coordinator; Mike Pence; Donald Trump; Alex Azar, HHS Secretary; Emma Walmsley,
CEO of GlaxoSmithKline; Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute
of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The most vulnerable to Coronavirus infection are the elderly in poor
health and healthcare workers treating the sick. The risks to the general population is still
low, according to Dr. Robert Redfield, the Director of the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC).
Given that up to 40,000 have died of the common flu variants this flu
season alone, compared to 11 deaths as of now due to the Coronavirus, it beckons that we
be prepared every flu season, Coronavirus or not. Year after year, the majority of Americans do
not contract influenza, and those that do, if they have a healthy immune
system, experience only mild symptoms.
There are two unpredictable threats to a runaway spread of the
contagion and those threats are open-uncontrolled borders and
unhealthy-unsanitary neglected homeless populations.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), half a million
foreigners from many countries, some in the travel ban list, enter the United
States illegally every year. Given their
illegal entry, this population is not checked or tested for infectious
According to the National
Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), there are half a million homeless people
living in America's crowded metropolitan centers, where the highest
concentration is in New York City (by far the most affected), Los Angeles,
Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Washington D.C.. The homeless live in crowded unsanitary
conditions and have no healthcare support.
The homeless typically urinate and defecate on public areas near human traffic and are not able to wash there hands frequently because they typically do not have access to clean running water. If an outbreak occurred in these populations, it will be hard to predict
how the contagion may spread.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control
(CDC) recommend following the standard precautions for avoiding respiratory
- Wash your hands
often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Cover your mouth and
nose with your elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Avoid touching your
eyes, nose, and mouth if your hands aren't clean.
- Avoid close contact
with anyone who is sick.
- Avoid sharing
dishes, glasses, bedding and other household items if you're sick.
- Clean and disinfect
surfaces you often touch.
- Stay home from work,
school, and public areas if you're sick.
