    cfs says:

    If you are a relatively young nurse (under 50 years old) without co-morbidity, use of hydroxychloroquine will reduce your viral load sufficiently that the chances of death are less than running across an interstate highway every day.
    Combine a prophylactic with vitamin C and D plus zinc and the odds become less than being struck by lightning.

      That’s good advice, and you can boost your immunity even more with selenium and iodine, and avoiding sugar and high fructose corn syrup, and getting plenty of sleep and sunshine.

      bonzo says:

      I am very worried about Dr. Frieda if she eats boxed cereals, salads from a bag, and microwaves her food. And I am worried about Al too if he thinks she is wise about these matters. I hope she doesn’t drink tap water too. Hear me and hear me well, throw your microwaves out of your house and never eat microwaved food or drinks, and never drink crap from a tap.

        cfs says:

        Bonzo,Specifically what concerns you about the use of low GHz microwave ovens ?

        Because you think they do other than cause other than physical vibration of mostly water molecules in food, I would like to know.

        • On March 31, 2020 at 1:38 pm,
          bonzo says:

          I am not a scientist but all the wise men I follow( Dr. Ed Group, Dr. Mercola, Jonathan Landsman, Sayer Ji, Mike Adams, etc) think that vibrating the molecules so violently destroys the structure and 90% of the nutritional value of the food. Try an experiment: eat nothing but microwaved food and drink for a couple or 3 weeks and see if you don’t get sick. Or get 2 similar potted plants. Water one with regular water and the other with only microwaved water. After a week or 2 compare the health of the 2 plants. I’ve read that microwave ovens were banned in the old Soviet Union.

      • On March 31, 2020 at 1:45 pm,
        Big Al says:

        I didn’t hear her say that she eats boxed cereals; bagged salads; and, drinks tap water.

        So would you use a microwave to simply heat food that is already cooked?

        • On March 31, 2020 at 1:59 pm,
          bonzo says:

          She did not mention tap water,(and I never said she did), but she did mention taking cereal out of the boxes and salads out of the bags. I would never microwave anything unless I wanted to destroy 90% of the nutritional value. If I was cooking for Adam Schiff or Bill and Hillary, or Nancy Pelosi, etc., then I would use a microwave.

        • On March 31, 2020 at 3:13 pm,
          cfs says:

          It is possible to wreck food in a microwave oven, just as it is in a regular oven. (Probably easier in a microwave since the electromagnetic fields penetrate the interior of the food, as oppose to cooking it by thermal transport from the outside surface.
          However, to claim damage specifically to bond structure of the organic chemicals inside the food is simply ignorant rubbish. Specifically the frequency of the microwaves is simply too low. The mode of heating food by microwaves is predominantly motion of polar molecules (i.e. water) due to electric fields. That’s why most hydrocarbon composed plastics do not melt in a microwave, because they don’t contain an OH link.
          I haven’t read much of the authors quoted by bonzo, but I believe them to be mistaken about the dangers of microwave ovens.
          In deed in the example of taking two plants, watering one with water and the other with microwaved water, if the water were obtained from a faucet, I can imagine the microwaved ta water plant would do better, because of reduction of dissolved chlorine and fluorine.

          • On March 31, 2020 at 6:13 pm,
            bonzo says:

            Great chefs do not cook with microwaves. Instead of imagining why don’t you actually do the experiment. Eat nothing but microwaved food and drink for 3 weeks and tell us how you feel. I have not eaten microwaved food for 10 years and I feel great and have not been sick for a decade. I am sure that Dr. Group and Dr. Mercola know a lot more about microwave ovens than you and are much healthier than you are. You shall know a tree by its fruits.

          • On March 31, 2020 at 6:30 pm,
            bonzo says:

            Dr. David Jockers, another of my favorite doctors, also tells us to avoid microwave food.
            You have been warned.

      Fast forward March 30, and with the new ‘Gold Enhanced Delivery futures’ contract ready to start trading, the COMEX daily gold vault inventory report (which lists nine approved vaults in New York City and surrounding areas) has just been published showing a new set of lines items for 400 oz bars, but, and here is the punchline, there are absolutely no 400 oz gold bars listed on the entire report. Not one.

      I am now pretty removed from this market so I cannot comment

      • On March 31, 2020 at 1:55 pm,
        Big Al says:

        To elaborate on the above comment, I did pretty well in the gold sector when I took very little outside advice; spent a lot of time in it; and, generally bet on people who I knew really well. (The last factor also helped me to stay away from the hucksters most of whom are still around still trying to make money.]

            Cede and Company, also known as “Cede and Co.” or “Cede & Co.”, is a specialist United States financial institution that processes transfers of stock certificates on behalf of Depository Trust Company, the central securities depository used by the United States National Market System, which includes the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, and other exchanges together with associated clearinghouses such as NSCC, FICC, DTCC, and others.[1]

            Cede technically owns substantially all of the publicly issued stock in the United States.[2] Thus, investors do not themselves hold direct property rights in stock, but rather have contractual rights that are part of a chain of contractual rights involving Cede.

    After being exposed to virus one is typically without symptoms from 4 to 6 days, then if sick, you will have symptoms from 8 to 17 days, and then be capable of transmitting disease asymptomatically for up to another 10 days.

    If you enter ICU, you will be there for typically at least a month unless you die.

    Instudying data I’m often struck by anomalies.
    e.g in the age data for Tennessee, I don’t find an even spread among all age groups.
    Often the anomalies are because the data group is too small to be statistically meaningful.
    Not in the case of Tennessee.


    My guess is that there were a couple of highly infected people at a sporting event or a concert.

    I can’t prove it, but I would guess the act of shouting or cheering increases the airborne virus load by a couple of orders of magnitude and the infection probability by at least an order of magnitude.

    About half the population of infected people are asymptomatic, so the MAJORITY of transmission is asymptomatic, so I’m not sure short of mandatory face masks this can be slowed down; and without TOTAL self-isolation cannot be stopped.
    I don’t think many in the U.S. Government know what they’re dealing with.
    I’m not even sure if many politicians really want to know.

    Mainland China reported 7 more deaths overnight.
    Conntrary to others commentators, I do not believe that China deliberately lies all the time. They, however, tend to be deceptive. E.g. they might say “No more deaths in Wuhan”, which could be true if the deaths occurred in Hubei province just outside Wuhan.
    Reported new cases in China were 44 in the last 24 hours.

    The habit of touching your face is another reason for wearing a mask. They should stress this along with the hand washing.

      I’ve been picking up mail by loosely wrapping a piece of paper around it and dumping it on my kitchen floor for 48 hours., before touching it again. Then cut the ends of envelopes,tip the contents into a clean bowl, dispose of envelope, wash my hands before reading letters.
      I started with a 4 day delay, but have halved it as new data became available.
      Accessing mail is clearly a possible source of infection. Probable a primary source other than airborne, for which I have a UV light in my hallway to cope with that. Time will tell, I guess. I wish the U.S. would hurry up with prophylaxis chemicals, but they are probably at least 3 months away, at least.

    • On April 1, 2020 at 6:57 am,
      cfs says:

      I’m surprised how easy it is to focus on exactly where your hands are, when in a high danger environment. Not that I place myself in one for long periods of time. But when I go to get mail I use one hand to do it, and the other clean hand to open doors etc., and am totally aware of what each hand is doing all the time, until washed and decontaminated.

    I don’t understand the U.K., they keep a database of locations of homes of positive tested people, but don’t make it public (unless you know where to look), but are slow to test frontline workers.

      Hence my continued position that I cannot give an intelligent opinion.
      I am learning more as time goes on.

        Well, we have China as a guinea pig to watch. They seem to be ramping up.
        My best guess is about a half-year’s loss of GDP total. That will be ameliorated by money injection.
        For the U.S. it is clearly going to occur by a rebuilding of infrastructure. Which the U.S. was in dire need of anyway. A pity the scum politicians have to spread/waste so much pork.

    2 hours of answering stupid gotya questions from biased reporters is a waste of time.
