    Sounds a lot like those " death panels" that never materialized during the previous administration are finally here

    Except it wasn't banned. Talk about fake news.

    Or it was banned ... then it wasn't due to backlash.

    A relative gave the most scientific analysis of the six foot distance rule yet. He said, "If I fart in this room now, leave the room for several minutes, and then come back, I'll still smell the fart. Therefore if you walk through where an infected person breathed a few minutes ago you will get infected."

    I wonder if Dr. Fauci has thought about that? :D

    I'll set aside my generally cynical and flippant attitude for a moment.

    I may have mentioned here that my sister & brother-in-law both came down with what they are sure was COVID-19 in mid March, had mild symptoms, were sick for a week or two, and self-isolated.

    They just found out that a friend of theirs who had been at a party with them (in late February I believe [Edit: March 7] - shortly before all the emphasis on social distancing in the MSM) and who also fell ill at the same time, passed away this morning from COVID-19 complications.

    He was in his mid 50s.

    :(

    Details?

    Elderberry is proven to provide faster recovery from influenza, not proven on common cold.

    I don't believe there are any issues with short term (weeks and months) use.

    Supply chain is empty. Going to take a while to restock. I guess buying enough to last for a month or two when it was available, wasn't so stupid after all. Not saying you said this, but a lot of people did.

    Has to do with boosting the immune system. Has the potential to cause Cytokine Release Syndrome in some individuals.

    Should not be used by those with autoimmune disorders. Can aggravate that condition.

    In the case of influenza, it acts as a Hemaglutinnin inhibitor.

    The state's second letter was equally poorly worded and still did not specifically say that doctors could prescribe the antimalarial drugs for Wuhan virus patients. It appears that they specifically avoided mentioning it use for the Wuhan virus.

    Apologize if this is Jambog, but what about those on ACE inhibitors like Lisinopril? Has any significant research work been done on that yet? This seems like it will be a BFD. Lots of old and even middle age guys are on ACE inhibitors. Will they be semi Immune, or will it ensure their health spirals into critical condition?

    I’m sure all clinical guidance will be to keep calm and carry on with the well-tolerated anti-hypertensive drug regimen. But surely enough doctors on the ground in other countries have examined this question that we have a good idea, or?

    Hell, I bought 3 cases on Amazon back before the US had it's first case. :dancingbanana:
    Haven't even opened the first case yet.

    I'm much smarter than I look. (Thank God).

    Only because China did not report anywhere near their true numbers.

    One day Xi announced there would be no more new cases and no more new deaths and a miracle happened... There were no more.

    It seemed in the one press release that I read on here, she was doing her utmost to see that the drug was not proscribed. While not banning the drug just suggesting action against Drs. and the pharmacies that dispensed the drug.

    China has fudged with numbers since day one and they still are. Then North Korea followed China's example by saying that they have no cases and everything is fine.
