Live in CA & Test POSITIVE for COVID-19 virus. What to do?

What to do when  you test POSITIVE for the  COVID-19 virus aka  the CCP virus?

This post concerns COVID-19 aka the CCP virus   and, in particular,  what’s happening in  Santa Cruz County, California.    For  general information on COVID-19   for Santa Cruz County CA, read the  Good Times  click  HERE.  For  world wide information from  The Epoch Times on COVID-19  aka CCP Virus,  click HERE.

Recently,  on  Santa Cruz California radio station  KSCO (1080 AM)   Psychologist  Cameron Jackson, Ph.D.,  asked   Health official Gail Newel,  MD what medical treatment the County  recommends  for people who test  positive for the  COVID-19 virus.  Dr. Newel  is the  Health Officer  for the county of Santa Cruz, California.  The  question and answer  interview with Dr. Newel  is available in the archives of  KSCO (1080 AM).

Gail Newel,  MD,  replied that people should rest and take lots of liquids.  In response  Dr. Jackson said.  “What you are recommending is what people typically do for the flu.   As you well know,  the CCP virus kills people by the thousands.   And   there are treatment protocols that do work.”

Gail Newel, MD  said there were some medicines are   “in the works”  but  she could not name any specific ones.

In response, psychologist  Dr. Jackson said:  “There are   treatment protocols — such as hydroxychloroquine  coupled with zinc and an antibiotic —  which are available with a prescription.  Zinc can be bought over the counter and the other two require a prescription.”    Dr. Newel replied  that research did not support those medications.  Dr. Jackson disagreed. “Will you read  the research if I send it to you?’ asked Dr. Jackson.

Dr. Gail Newel  is the top health official for Santa Cruz County in California.  In that position, Dr. Newel   makes decisions which affect Santa Cruz county residents in many ways e.g.,  which businesses can open, whether  and at what times people can go to the local beaches s and when  and where  face masks must be worn.

So what should YOU do if you get a POSITIVE diagnosis of COVID-19 aka the  CCP Virus?

For openers, don’t rely on what the Health Officer for  Santa Cruz County has to say.  Dr.. Gail Newel,   Health Officer for Santa Cruz County CA,  has not read the current research which says that persons newly diagnosed (not hospitalized, not on oxygen) can be helped  considerably by a combination of hydroxychloroquine  with zinc and an antibiotic.

What to do?  Get the required prescriptions and do the treatment with the say so of your physician.   Some persons, for example those who take Bystolic (blood pressure medication. ) cannot take hydroxychloroquine.  There’s another medicine typically given for parasites that can be used.

How to stay up to date on COVID-19 aka CCP virus? One excellent source of information is  TheEpochTimes   which has world wide coverage.  California currently leads the world  with 62,701  COVID-19  deaths and 3770,150 cases.

coronavirus killed by drug that treats parasitic infections — invermectin

coronavirus killed by drug used for lice in lab setting

A drug ivermectin  commonly used to treat lice  and widely available  kills  coronavirus in lab setting.  Experts warn, do not self medicate.

April 7, 2020 — An inexpensive drug used to treat parasitic infections killed the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in less than 48 hours in a laboratory setting, Australian researchers say.
The drug, ivermectin, has been used widely used for decades. It was introduced as a veterinary drug in the 1970s. It is available variously.  
Doctors also prescribe it to treat head lice, scabies, and other infections caused by parasites.According to a report published online in the journal Antiviral Research, the drug quickly prevented replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The study has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication, although it is not yet a “definitive” version of record.Researchers infected cells with SARS-CoV-2, then exposed them to ivermectin. “We showed that a single dose of ivermectin could kill COVID-19 in a petri dish within 48 hours, indicating potent antiviral activity,” says study co-author David Jans, PhD, a professor of biochemistry and m0 in Melbourne.Even at 24 hours, “there was a really significant reduction” in the virus, study leader Kylie Wagstaff, PhD, a senior research fellow in biochemistry and molecular biology at Monash University, said in a statement.But experts say more testing is needed to know if it works well in people and if it’s safe to use.

‘No One Should Try to Self-Medicate’

“The main way we think ivermectin works is to target a key molecule of our cells that we think helps the virus to proliferate,” Jans says. “By stopping this, the virus replicates more slowly, and so our immune system has a better chance to mount the antiviral response and kill the virus.” Giving this or any antiviral drug early is thought to give the body the best chance of beating infection, he says.

In other studies, the researchers say, the drug has been shown to work against dengue fever and to limit infections similar to COVID-19, such as the West Nile virus.

The drug is “safe at relatively high doses, widely available, and relatively cheap, too,” Jans says. The next step is more research to find the best dose for fighting COVID-19. Then researchers can begin testing in people, he says. “It is important to stress that no one should try to self-medicate with versions of ivermectin that are for veterinary purposes or head lice.” The only safe way to get ivermectin is by prescription from a doctor, he says.

Over kill reaction to corona virus? 40 have died …half from one facility

Overkill reactions n to the corona virus?   Are you hoarding toilet paper?  Hiding toilet paper in your safe?  Come on now ….

Roughly  40 persons in the  USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.

The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus  are older  persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.

One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone  will die from the virus.  Based on what facts?  That’s an overkill reaction.

What does  make  sense to do:

  1.   regularly and frequently  wipe down using disinfectant wipes those   surfaces people frequently touch  (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
  2.  regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
  3. practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
  4. stay home when  sick or think you are getting sick

The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy.   One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes.  For example,  Clorox wipes are  made by a CA company  with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble.  So — why not  invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean?  The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.
