    A majority of deaths will be as a direct result of Insulin Resistance and the effects this condition has on the immune system. IR develops as a result of the Standard Western Diet which is dangerously elevated in processed carbohydrates.

    When I wore a mask for three days I touched my face 10x more. To take the mask on and off you have to bring your hands to your face to move or adjust it. No one does this perfectly especially normal folks. I could be wrong but that's what I noticed.

    Unknown infectious Diseases are everywhere happening everyday in the world you never know when it happens around you (new diseases are always developing new forms by mutations unknown to human in the beginning anytime anywhere) !!!! Such as the one "H1N1 or H5N1 viruses "happened in USA and Europe, ignorant by all americans and Europeans in the beginning in 2009, having killed 284500 people in USA, Canada & all over the world.

    Now this time the Covid 19, americans and europeans have not learnt from past experience, in the beginning 0f 2020 were still ignorant when China has already given great warning to the world via WHO, now more and more long existing Flu patients in USA and Europe have been discovered actually to be Covid19 patients and viruses carriers (now USA has more than 500000 cases of Covid19 and 20000 deaths while Europe has more …..) after more Covid 19 tests are conducted on these long existing Flu patients in USA and Europe and other parts of the world.

    This alarming figure of more than 500000 infected cases alone in USA support the evidence that Covid 19 for sure originated from USA and Europe's long exisiting Flu patients before the tests were conducted on them too late when China had discovered first case imported elsewhere from the world. Also with this alarming figures of more than 500000, american bias Wall street Journal should update its previous offensive report against other countries, now with this terrible infected figures, Wall Street Journal and NY Times should know which nation is actually Sick Men of the World when basing figures of Covid19 infections by nation.

    Then recently just since Last year "s Flu season, more than 10000000 infected (In USA, most doctors never conducted Coronavirus Test for patients infected with Flu because patients are needed to pay thousands of dollars) while 5000 people died of Flu / pneumonia related diseases in USA alone (probably some of these deaths are caused by Covid19). More than 100 thousands people (particularly old people) died in other countries in the West (all over whole Europe, particularly Italy, France, Germany, Iran, Korea, Japan ) or in the world for Pneumonia infectious related diseases, but west media reported such diseases or sickness in a very low profile eventh the the infected figures are terribly high.

    However, Very much surprised and weird that the West inclined to get excited and like to report in a very high profile when problems concerning other countries "natural challenges" such as this one happening in China now.

    This is simply just a new type of Pneumonia (ie. Caused by so called corona virus) recently discovered in China, so no strange and be calm and have confidence on the highly efficiently mobilized and action centralised Chinese Government which have great knowledge and experience able to handle such natural challenges of New Pneumonia (Corona virus) in a really professional way like other similar incidents happened before internationally. Such as China "s ability to mobilize all Chinese citizens, medical staff from the military, all civil servants and etc to fight against this virus invasion in the way to fight against foreign invasion wars of any kinds.

    In fact, though it might be a little unfortunate for China, yet it can give a good chance for China to have a full practical national training in fighting against a war similar to biological terrorism attacks from China "s hostile Super opponents. Salute to those medical professionals and other people in other sectors work together in China and other parts or the world to fight against this natural challenges and they can overcome all difficulties facing them. After overcoming this new natural challenges again, I would believe that China would have great confidence to become the most sophisticated nation in handling all kinds of new developing infectious diseases happening all over the world everyday.

    Cheer to all Chinese people and their outstandingly centralized Govt having stood calm, then with immediate remedial actions taken since the outbreak of these new discovered virus !!! Just 16 years ago, the Chinese Govt united together with all their 1.4 billions patriotic citizens had overcome the SARS challenges very well, this time for sure they can handle this Less Critical natural challenges. Let us just pray for those who have suffered from this New Pneumonia and try to help each other to prevent from any kinds of diseases happened in any countries in the world !!!

    Every country has a chance (maybe next turn is your country) to have new kinds of diseases infected and spreading around the world, so never complain others but show your help if you so wish or just show your sympathy by heart if you are busy instead of spreading rumors against a country which is now nationally busy in taking the natural challenges !!!! While China is now recovering fastly and has gradually resumed normal after 3 months' fight against this Covid19, Let us pray for all other countries to recover soon as well !!! Amen !!

    I started with flu A then it turned into pneumonia. One of the 2 nurses tested positive for COVID-19 and the other nurse tested negative for all viral? We 3 worked closely together and had lunch etc. only one tested positive for COVID-19. I tested positive for flu A now pneumonia? No one has any concrete answers. I was told by my health care provider that I will be classified as having COVID-19. the other nurse who read neg to all viruses will also be classified as positive to COVID-19 . God is merciful and pray for all the family who lost there love ones and pray for the bodies that are in refrigerated trucks.

    Why is the news saying don’t wear masks if you don’t have it only if you do? Why are the doctors and stuff wearing them? Plus how do we get tested and know if there aren’t enough,!it almost feels like a rat in a maze, only one way to go

    Thank you, Doc for explaining why masks are helpful. Since we don't know we have the virus, when we are social distancing like at the grocery store or the pharmacy, we are not spreading it with our saliva when talking or laughing or sneezing.
