Coronavirus symptoms Italy info | boost your immune system

Coronavirus symptoms: How to protect yourself from coronavirus infection. How to avoid contagion. Transmissions, prevention, treatment. Supplements to boost immune system.

I am writing this article from Italy in a country in the province of Lombardy "red zone - sars outbreak". In Italy is not possible to move freely except for work, health and food supply reasons only.

Flights blocked to and from Italy towards a lot of the neighboring states. This situation up to April 3, 2020, if God wants.

Doctors and nurses are welcome. Northern Italy hospitals are collapsing. Ambulances ring at all hours... an unreal scenario.

Codiv_19 Who is most at risk?

It would seem that the virus can enter the lung alveolar cell via the ECAII receptor.
When it binds to this receptor, it overexpresses it (defuses it) and kills the alveolar cell.

Good to know:

- Men have more ECAII receptors than women.
- Asians have more receptors than Caucasians.
- People taking antihypertensive drugs such as antiECAs and in particular anti-ECAIIs have brutal receptor over-expression and are therefore more sensitive to infections and the infection will be more severe.
- Severe cases of young people infected with Covid_19, are patients who took anti-inflammatory drugs at the beginning of the disease.

Coronavirus | Drugs to Avoid:

According to the data reported by the institute, you should avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, voltarene (diclofenac), etc. because they favor severe forms of Covid_19. When needed, it is recommended to take only paracetamol.
Do not take ibuprofen or anti-inflammatory if you suspect Covid.

In France, 4 serious cases of young people with no previous disease have Ibuprofen in common. It apparently makes the infection much faster.

Rheumatoid arthritis drug is good for reducing the potency of the coronavirus

The president and CEO of Roche Farma, Maurizio de Cicco, announced the pharmaceutical decision to sell the rheumatoid arthritis drug used by doctors at the Cotugno hospital in Naples free of charge on two patients suffering from severe coronavirus pneumonia.

In addition, Roche will donate € 1 million in medical protective equipment and intensive care equipment.
Thank you!

The SARS-CoV-2 |COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 virus causes COVID-19. This aggressive coronavirus creates a Severe acute respiratory syndrome - SARS.

The new Covid-19 coronavirus has arrived in Italy and is outbreak in Lombardy: the most affected area even if today all of Italy is a red zone.

In addition to following the government's instructions on avoiding public places, staying at home if you have flu symptoms, colds, coughs... it is good to know which substances to take with a high antiviral power to increase the body's immune defenses to prevent or limit the aggressiveness of the virus.

Supplements to boost immune system

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Zinc
  • Beta Glucan
  • Curcumin
  • Selenium

These substances limit the aggressiveness of the following viral strains: rhinovirus, adenovirus, coronavirus and human metapneumovirus.

How to protect yourself from coronavirus infection

How can I protect myself from contagion of the Covid-19 coronavirus?

The two substances to be taken without delay, according to scientific studies made to evaluate the antiviral effects in case of flu and / or cold symptoms, are these:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D

At the following doses:

- Coronavirus and Vitamin C

According to scientific studies, high doses of vitamin C, at least 5 - 8 grams distributed throughout the day, are effective in preventing and countering the spread of the virus. These high dosages are taken ONLY if you experience the first flu or para-flu symptoms including sore throat and cold.

It can reach 15-25 grams per day of vitamin C, for 30 days, for those who contract very strong viruses such as the current  Coronavirus Covid-19 - SARS-CoV-2 .

My supplement:

High dose Vitamin C  1000 mg + bioflavonoids + zinc 180 tablets.

SOURCE: Dr Harri Hemilä of the University of Helsinki, Finland, based on the results obtained from randomized studies on the effects of variable and massive doses of vitamin C to limit the duration of the cold, came to the conclusion that the doses should be higher than 15 g per day of vitamin C to drastically reduce the spread of the virus.

- Coronavirus and Vitamin D

For a preventive effect, take the minimum vitamin D  5000 IU per day. If you have already contracted the virus, raise the dose to  10 thousand IU per day  until symptoms resolve.

SOURCE : Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. According to the scientific report, insufficient levels of vitamin D are related to a deficiency of our innate immune defenses that protect us from infections, viral attacks, malignancies or autoimmune diseases.
 Better to overestimate the power of a virus than to underestimate it. This is the case with Covid-19.

My supplement:

Extended release Vitamin D3 supplement , 14,000 IU high dosage.

Coronavirus symptoms

☑️ Coronavirus is one of many common cold strains. The variant that scares us so much today (SARS-CoV-2) is transmitted in the same way: by saliva, also by air, if someone sneezes, coughs without a mask, without covering the nose and mouth with the hand. 😒

So be careful what you touch because infected saliva particles on a surface (such as a door handle in a public bathroom) remain viral for a long time (whether it's even for 15 minutes, an hour or more), avoid to rub your eyes or put your hands in your mouth or on the mucous membranes of the nose... cover any open cuts and wounds and disinfect your hands often if you go to public places.

TO KNOW: Clean the surfaces with alcohol or vinegar if you cannot find disinfectant products in the shops.

Coronavirus symptoms

Coronavirus symptoms INITIALS are identical to those that you have surely already had when you caught a cold or a flu:
  • a runny nose
  • headache and / or sore throat
  • cough
  • fever, chills
  • widespread malaise with muscle pain ...

Probably the only difference is that COVID-19 progresses rapidly in pneumonia  since the infected people went to the hospital for an acute respiratory crisis.

- The only sure way to know if you have contracted this specific strain is to make the salivary swab in the hospital .

In case of pneumonia or respiratory problems, call this phone number in Italy: 1500, or contact your general practitioner, or 112.

In case they think you are at risk, a "dedicated" team will come to your house so that you will not infect anyone by going personally to a public facility.
