The COVID-19 pandemic and the use of MS disease-modifying therapies (March 27)
https://www.msard-journal.com/article/S ... 8/fulltext

"What to do in the event of COVID-19 symptoms?

Instruct your patients not to attend accident and emergency services to avoid overcrowding and further spreading of the virus. Instruct your patients to call the local emergency number, describe their symptoms and wait for instructions.

Evaluate the temporary withdrawal of current DMT based on the guidelines provided above.

Recommendations for MS patients and healthcare professionals at MS centres:
  • If possible, avoid crowded places such as cinemas, theatres, schools, etc.
  • In high risk areas, restrict access to MS centres to MS patients only.
  • For patients on immunosuppressive infusion therapies, the use of protective surgical-grade masks is recommended.
  • If travelling long distances or using public transport is absolutely necessary, it is recommended to use protective masks and hand sanitizing (particularly for patients on fingolimod, alemtuzumab, ocrelizumab, cladribine or rituximab).
  • If possible, work from home.
  • Good personal hygiene is always important, specifically, it is recommended to wash your hands frequently, ideally in an alcohol-based gel (>60% alcohol).
These recommendations are provided as a guideline only, please always refer to your local government advice. These recommendations are likely to change depending on the evolution of the epidemics (sic)."

Dear legs:

Distancing and isolation are not always possible. The virus spreads from contact with people who have no symptoms. My former PSW, my sister-in-law who is a nurse, and my MS friend who also has juvenile diabetes for the last 50 years, and works as a receptionist in an old-age nursing home, can all get covid-19 and cannot stay isolated.

If you have it, the prophylactic measures in my video will help deactivate the virus. Soap is the absolute best thing for that, as for hand-washing. It will deactivate covid19 and any other viri on your hands and in your nose and eyes. You have to prevent it getting in mucus and getting down into your lungs.

For other inanimate objects we have some spray bottles and have dilute bleach, and soap and water in them. Ask someone who knows what they are doing to mix you up some. Or just use dishwashing soap and water. It does not have to be very strong. But soap works. Ask any chemist.

Hello Chris: Thanks for the video (which I'm having trouble viewing.) In line with your thinking, see the article by Alexander Chuchalin on the Saker.is "How to treat Coronavirus Infection Covid -19; March 14; 2020. Copie of excerpt follows.

"Q: What would you recommend to a person who finds himself… Well, we have already agreed that the virus is in the general population. We can’t really control it anymore.
A: Are you asking for some simple recommendations? First of all, take a good care for the nasal mucosa and oropharyngeal area.
Q: To wash it with saltwater?
A: Yes, wash it thoroughly. But “lors” – non-prescription medications and sinus cleaners to stop running nose and for an effective lavage. That is, the feeling of free unobstructed breath should come after all. The second thing is the oropharyngeal area behind the uvula. And there, too, you need to make a good lavage of the oropharyngeal region.
Q: So you don’t just have to squirt it up your nose, you have to gargle it deep down your throat?
A: Yes, and rinse it out. And don’t be lazy. Do do it until you get a feeling of clean, good airways. Of all the ways, this is the most effective. I would advise those people who can afford to buy a nebulizer or…
Q: Do you mean, it’s aerosol, right? With ultrasound?
A: Yes. And it allows the hygiene of the upper respiratory tract to be brought to a good state. When a cough starts, it is desirable to still apply the medications that we prescribe for patients with bronchial asthma. This is either Berodual, or Ventolin, or Salbutamol. Because these drugs improve mucociliary clearance, relieve spasm.
Q: You mean expectorant?” Mucolytic ACC?
A: Yes, ACC and Fluimucil. And what you can’t do is use glucocorticosteroids. This virus replication is rapidly increasing by them.
Q: What does that mean?
A: Corticosteroids is prednisone, methylprednisolone, dexamethasone, betamethasone.
Q: So you don’t need to inject hormones, relatively speaking, if you have a viral infection?
A: There are inhaled steroids. But there are patients with asthma who are ill and are on this therapy. But this has to be a tailor-made solutions. Of course, 2020 will go down in medical history as a year of a new disease. We must admit that we have understood this new disease. Two new pneumonias have arrived. First is pneumonia, which is caused by e-cigarettes, vapes, and now in the United States, people have died from this…
Q: …several thousand teenagers. Yes, this is a well-known fact, and how to treat it is unclear. You put them on a ventilator — they die immediately.
A: Yes. Do you understand what the problem is? Here they develop those changes in the lungs that occur during this process. They seem to be similar (to the changes from the coronavirus). This is respiratory distress syndrome, which we are talking about. The literature raises very serious questions: the role of coronaviruses in transplantation. One of the problems is obliterating bronchiolitis, which occurs especially during transplantation.
Q: A lung transplant?
A: Yes, lungs and bone marrow. Stem cell. As a matter of fact, everything is well done, everything is normal, the person has responded to this therapy, and the problem of respiratory failure is beginning to grow. And the cause of these bronchiolitis was caught — it is a coronavirus… That is, new knowledge has come.

1. You should not have to go out and buy stuff. You probably have soap.
2. I am not a doctor. I don't know what works, except soap.
3. My video will work if you are patient. It has blank spots but if you just wait, it will soon start.
4. Don't just use nasal spray decongestants that just dry you out. They may not destroy the virus.
5. Shampoo in dilute solution does not hurt. Many animals have lost their lives so shampoo that does not hurt your eyes could be tested. It can still destroy the virus. I have no idea if salt solution will.

If you do not have an approved mask or face shield, you can try to make one. It will not protect your eyes. If you use a cloth mask of your own devising, remember that if you soak it in soapy water, and then dry it, the soap residue can still deactivate covid19 if a droplet lands on it. The moisture in the droplet, that contains the virus, can dissolve the soap residue and may destroy the virus. But remember, you have not protected your eyes. Best not to allow droplets to land there, if possible. If the virus gets in your eyes, the only way to deactivate it may be to get a little soap in your eyes. If you put soap in your eyes, immediately flush them with clear, warm water.

the view from here (sort of)

COVID-19 https://www.toronto.ca/home/covid-19/
"On April 2, Mayor John Tory signed an emergency order regulating physical distancing in parks and public squares. People who don’t live together and fail to keep two metres of distance between them in a park or public square, could be prosecuted and receive a fine of up to $5,000.
Current Health Situation
As of 12:30 p.m. on April 2, 897 cases of COVID-19 in Toronto have been reported to Toronto Public Health. "

COVID-19: Medical Officer of Health Statement
https://www.toronto.ca/wp-content/uploa ... il2020.pdf

"... I continue to hear concerning reports of people ignoring our recommendations. Yesterday, I learned that someone removed the barricades and signs that were put in place in the Sunnyside Park parking lot. Both the parking lot and park were full of people....
 We know that this virus spreads from person-to-person. People moving around in our community coming into close contact with others, within 2 metres of others is exactly how COVID-19 spreads.
 If you do not stay home, more people will get sick and more will die in our city. ...
 The sooner everyone complies with these measures, and the better we comply with these measures, the sooner we can make it through this challenge together. Please stay home, stay safe and take care of each other."

Thank you, legs, and thank you Toronto Mayor and Medical Officer of Health. I think a fine is not enough. I think hospitals should consult a list of fools and refuse to treat those who consistently refuse to distance. I know people cannot help being fools, but they have to learn, for the sake of the rest of us. Some people like doctors and nurses and PSWs would not be allowed to be listed.

This is a War.

Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the day the US invaded Okinawa. My grandfather did not land with the Red Cross till April 16th, 1945. He was too old to join military forces. But he was there.

It is a World War just like that one was. Some (but relatively a very few) of the enemy, is us.

Mostly, though, we are fighting and (relatively many more of us) being killed by, a virus.

We know that this virus spreads from person-to-person.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is just 120 nanometers in diameter. However, in just about 3 months it has spread around the World and is now in every country. It is as insidious as the Borg nanobots. 8O

There are now more than one million known cases of covid19 worldwide and 52,800 reported deaths as of this posting date.

3M Response to Defense Production Act Order (April 3)
https://news.3m.com/press-release/compa ... -act-order
"...In the course of our collaboration with the Administration this past weekend, the Administration requested that 3M increase the amount of respirators we currently import from our overseas operations into the U.S. We appreciate the assistance of the Administration to do exactly that. For example, earlier this week, we secured approval from China to export to the U.S. 10 million N95 respirators manufactured by 3M in China.

The Administration also requested that 3M cease exporting respirators that we currently manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets. There are, however, significant humanitarian implications of ceasing respirator supplies to healthcare workers in Canada and Latin America, where we are a critical supplier of respirators. In addition, ceasing all export of respirators produced in the United States would likely cause other countries to retaliate and do the same, as some have already done. If that were to occur, the net number of respirators being made available to the United States would actually decrease. That is the opposite of what we and the Administration, on behalf of the American people, both seek..."

of course i will never just take your word for it. neither will i do your work for you, regarding your unsubstantiated claims.
Greetings :
The French researcher Dr. Raoult is a world renowned specialist in infectious disease with a substantial body of published research. As can be seen in the link at the bottom of the page, he has studied with interest Chinese research on chloroquinine to treat COVID 19. Dr Zelenko apparently used this research (he should give credit to Dr Raoult) in his prescription to treat COVID 19.
Jimmylegs’ March 27 post provides research on Zinc sulfate which suggests why Dr Zelenko added it to his treatment protocol, loss of taste and smell being a recognized COVID 19 symptom.
By the way, this is not my claim nor my « work ». No need to be nasty, it seems all relevant info should be welcome. Yes, research is underway, but as Dr Raoult has said, he is a practical man and people are dying. (Given the poisons so easily prescribed every day for various ailments, I can’t see how this 5 day protocol is particularly dangerous. Better to be wrong and alive than right and dead.)
The following quote is taken from Dr Zelenko’s letter of March 23 (see my post of April 1).
« Given the urgency of the situation, I developed the following treatment protocol in the pre-hospital setting and have seen only positive results:
1. Any patient with shortness of breath regardless of age is treated.
2. Any patient in the high-risk category even with just mild symptoms is treated.
3. Young, healthy and low risk patients even with symptoms are not treated (unless their circumstances change and they fall into category 1 or 2).
My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:
1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days
2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days
3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days »
