Immune 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

Thousand Oaks, California. Directly From Nature, LLC stocks and distributes an extensive assortment of natural immune-system boosters. A healthy immune 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, including:

  • High Fever
  • Cough
  • 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 (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html).

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
  • Deputy Secretary Stephen Biegun, Department of State
  • Ken Cuccinelli, Acting Deputy Secretary, Department of Homeland Security
  • Joel Szabat, Acting Under Secretary for Policy, Department of Transportation
  • Matthew Pottinger, Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor
  • Rob Blair, Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor to the Chief of Staff
  • Joseph Grogan, Assistant to the President and Director of the Domestic Policy Council
  • Christopher Liddell, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Coordination
  • Derek Kan, Executive Associate Director, Office of Management and Budget
  • Robert Wilkie, Secretary of Veteran Affairs
  • Seema Verma, Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administration.
  • President Trump nominated Vice President Mike Pence, the second-highest elected representative in the nation, to coordinate between the Taskforce and the President.

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 diseases.

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 viruses:

  • 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.
