Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just wanted to reach out to you all pertaining to this pandemic that’s tearing through this country.  Here in NYC, we’re getting blasted, and life has certainly taken a crazy turn. I love this forum, and it’s been a great distraction from what’s going. My wife is a nurse at Mt. Sinai in the upper east side, and has only been able to come home once in the past week. Cases in the hospitals are doubling by the day, and according to my wife, patients seem sicker and sicker, and more diverse. Young patient numbers are rising, this isnt something that only attacks the weak and old. That being said, the real reason for this post is to tell you all to gargle a few times a day with an alcohol based mouthwash and increase your zinc intake. These are the instructions being told in the hospitals. The virus seems to enter most prevalently through the throat, and the mouthwash will obviously help to kill some of these germs. The zinc is simply an immune system booster. Anything to help you fend this off, along with washing yours hands and STAYING HOME if you can. Best of luck to you all and Go Bills!

Tell your wife (and you) thanks from all of us!  

 

Also, many thanks for the advice re: mouthwash and Zinc.  Will definitely take that advice.

Zicam and Cold-Eze type products are mostly functional because of zinc. Stay home everybody. If you think this isn't a big deal, think again. NYC hospitals are starting to be crushed under the load, and we aren't even peaking yet. Stay home.

Zinc? I will try it. I have been eating raw garlic like a champ. It does hurt my stomach and give awful heartburn though. I’m paranoid so I’m trying my best.

Next time you here these athletes compare football to "war" remember to thank a soldier and all the gratitude I have now goes to your wife for what she's dealing with on a day to day basis right now. she's a soldier as well on a different front line.

another benefit of the garlic regime is that it likely keeps people 6 feet away ;)

 

I actually love garlic also :)

Yeah that’s the first thing people say when you tell them that. I laugh, I’m fine with people staying away. Staying in most the day anyways. A kid at the biggest local grocery store just tested positive. That’s another group of folks that deserve love and appreciation. They are in the middle of it and making peanuts. Not that money changes anything but I do give them a lot of credit for going to work.

Speaking as a Bills fan who was ACTUALLY in a war, athletes are extremely competitive and fight hard, especially on a professional level, so I don't think they are ignorant of the difference at all.

 

That being said...

 

What is happening out there is tragic. I was in Haiti in 2010 during the hurricane relief for the medical response and it was a life changing experience. When you see people dying around you and you can't help them, IT GETS YOU. I'll never forget. What your wife is doing is way over the top inspirational and I thank you for sharing this with us. Be blessed and let her know she is so very much appreciated.

I had it years ago......after a long day at the beach. Too much sun, too little water, and WAY too much Corona! We ran out of limes, but the party went on! I was young and stupid. Now I’m old and stupid, but that’s another matter....

I echo this statement, I work at a hospital in Oregon and we are seeing rapid increases daily. Please wash your hands and please stay home. This stuff is no joke, and honestly working 16-18 hours a day and seeing people outside when I get off is pretty infuriating. Wash your hands and stay home! and obviously....Go bills. 

 

-Stay strong OP, tell your wife I greatly appreciate what she is doing.

Careful on the zinc.  It is not generally suggested as a daily supplement because it's too easy to end up with toxic levels.  The same is even more true with chloroquine.  The advice I've heard is don't take a zinc supplement unless you're symptomatic.  As soon as you are symptomatic, you can start taking it, but get your doctor's advice on how long.  Don'

t take chloroquine unless directed to do so by your doctor.  Vitamin C is being used in large doses with effectiveness.  Doctors are administering 1500 mg twice a day through an IV to COVID-19 patients.  I only take a modest dose of that 250 mg twice a day.  Should I develop symptoms, I would increase that.

A packet of EmergenC has 1100mg, I have been taking one a day.

I actually break a 500 mg vitamin C tablet in half and take half in the morning and half at night.  Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin and gets flushed out of your body easily.  In theory, taking half as much at a time and taking it twice a day should keep the level in you body more even.  If I develo0p any symptoms of any disease: common cold or coronavirus, I double up and take 500 mg at a pop.

Tearing through the country... With the number of cases basically nothing more than a blip on the radar.

 

Our RESPONSE to the pandemic is what is tearing through this country. BTW, I am fine with that.

 

You're wrong, we have done like 1 percent of the testing we should have.  This is going to kill a lot of people here, new York is already the third highest COUNTRY infected ( even though it's just  one of our states ) in the world. The numbers are going to dramatically rise within the next week or two. Please be cautious. Thank you OP for the information and bless you and your coragous wife.
