From: The Santa Monica Homeopathic Pharmacy on the Covid-19 pandemic:  “We have many customers taking immune products for prevention, but we have also had many customers diagnosed with Covid-19 contact us requesting help with their Covid-19 symptoms, anxiety, insomnia and other issues. Our customers with Covid-19 are all at home treating their symptoms and getting well. Most of them have already cleared their symptoms and have returned to normal.

Many of our customers are using the following products that many of our local practitioners are recommending. ImmunoGQur, ImmunoMVQur, Immunitone, Thymus Complex, Andrographis Complex, Viranon, ImmunotiX, Immune Essential, Epimune, Echinacea Premium, Immuplex, Congaplex, C-3000 Complex, Chezyn, Zinc Liver Chelate. This partial list of health products can support immunity or reduce the symptoms, with other products available according to your symptoms.

Getting the right supplement can vary from person to person depending on age and preexisting health conditions. Age matters, since we lose absorption as we age, which is one of many reason supplements can fail. Preexisting health conditions can indicate personal weakness in the body. It is best that people email us at connections@smhomeopathic.com for suggestions. They should include their age and preexisting health conditions and any symptoms they might have.

Diet is more critical then you might think. We do know that simple carbohydrates should be taken out of the diet, including sugar and sweets. Our immune system and overall health follows in line with a clean healthy diet.”
The below article is from our news reporter Jacqueline Murphy – who not only also is an actress that plays a Nurse on TV and in the movies- but is also a real Nurse in real life! So we want to give a special thanks to our Nurse Jackie!
Jackie has played a nurse on the hit Soap Opera “All My Children” on ABC TV, and has appeared in many TV shows, and movies with many big stars like Tom Cruise, Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Michael Keaton! We are now proud to have her as one of our reporters !
So below is the article she found that is written in the words of Dr. James Robb, that we hope will help all of you:
As some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diegoone of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.
Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:
1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.
2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.
4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.
5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.
6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.
7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:
1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.
Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon.
This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.
2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.
3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.
4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.
I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this (edited: animal)-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it.
Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.
I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share.
Good luck to all of us!
James Robb, MD FCAP

In addition we would like to give you a few more tips:

  1. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly
    1. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze
    2. Don’t touch your face with unwashed hands
    3. Consider replacing the typical business handshake or hug with an “elbow shake” or fist bump
    4. Stay home or in your hotel room if you feel sick or are coughing or sneezing

    Think Zinc to fight the Coronavirus by building up your immune system!
     

    That’s right “Think Zinc” and not “Think Mink” to fight the Coronavirus by building up your immune system with advice from Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum!

    Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D has been on our show many times, and has always gave us great in-depth interviews- with new, valuable cutting edge health advice, and has personally gave me some great help with health issues that I had. The Doctor gave me his best-selling books: Real Cause Real Cure, and Cures A-Z – which were both filled with lots of amazing advice to improve your health! In this below letter he sent to me are some great tips on how to fight back against the Coronavirus by strengthening your immune system:

    We have all heard about the importance of social distancing, to avoid coming in contact with the virus. This is important, and represents a prudent caution. It can be done calmly, and even enjoyably. In fact, one can simply treat the upcoming period until the all clear is sounded as an introvert’s perfect holiday.

    How you approach this does matter. Anxiety and panic make the immune system less effective over extended periods. It works better when you ’ re calm and enjoying yourself. So take this as a time for rest and enjoying home movies, reading, and time with the family. Basically, a  staycation. ” I schedule one or two of these stay-at-home vacations myself each year. Even without the virus. They are some of my favorite vacations!

    So once you ’ ve taken measures to do social distancing, handwashing, and the usual recommendations, the next step is to institute some very simple but powerfully effective tools

    1- Take a high potency Multivitamin

    Keep your immune system strong! This recommendation is critical. Although most strategies have focused on not coming in contact with the virus, is critical to have your immune defense system optimized just in case. Four nutrients are especially important for this, with the most critical one being zinc. Zinc has been shown to slow coronavirus replication by blocking its RNA Polymerase, and can even kill the virus on contact (as zinc lozenges). So it ’ s like practicing spay and neuter for the coronavirus .

    Vitamins A (2500 mg a day – not higher. Doses over 8000 units a day can cause birth defects in pregnant women), vitamin C (200 – 500 mg daily), and vitamin D (1000 units daily) are also important. I recommend the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder, which has all of the above. It can be found at https://secure.endfatigue.com/store/products/supplements/berry-splash

    2- Elderberry has been shown to also suppress coronavirus. This can be found in ViraPro, which also contains all the key nutrients above. I personally take the Energy Revitalization System plus one ViraPro each day for added protection. This may prevent the infection and make it much less severe if you do happen to get it.

    3-  Meanwhile, don ’ t forget the power of getting a good night sleep. For most people, 8 – 9 hours a night is optimal. Getting optimal sleep has been shown to be associated with enhanced immune function, so getting optimal sleep can decrease the risk, and the severity of, coronavirus infections.

    4- if you do get possible symptoms of the virus (e.g. cough, fever, or intestinal symptoms), don ’ t panic. Most people will do fine, and the infection is often mild. Instead, continue the measures above and

    A-      call your physician. They probably won ’ t want you to come in, as there is really nothing they can do. They may or may not instruct you to go to a drive through Coronavirus testing site. Sitting in a doctor ’ s waiting room is more likely to cause harm than good if you have mild symptoms.

    B-      If you are having cough and severe shortness of breath, that is when it is especially important to call your physician. This raises a question of the coronavirus causing a pneumonia.

    C-      If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, increasing vitamin C to 2000 mg a day (or as much as you can take without uncomfortable diarrhea or stomach irritation) can be helpful. I would then increase zinc to 50 – 75 mg a day, add the Elderberry 300 mg a day, and also add Andrographis. If one does not have high blood pressure, I would also add a licorice extract or 2 cups of licorice tea each morning.
    Below is a photo of a bag of organic black Elderberry Zinc Lozenges. You can also take the liquid form to get 380mg by the Sambucol brand. 

    Remember, most of you will do fine even if you get the virus. It will often be mild and help you develop natural immunity. But a simple ounce of prevention using the measures above can go a long way.

    Hope this is helpful,

    love and blessings,

    Today’s Updates on the Coronavirus, by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum: 
    1. On our news story: “Think Zinc to fight the Coronavirus by building up your immune system!” by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum , there have been a few more news stories from other News Outlets that also agreed and confirmed with us the value of taking Zinc (50 – 75 mg a day) to strengthen your immune system to fight off the Coronavirus, and taking Zinc in lozenge format. Also other news stories also agreed with us about the great value of taking Vitamins A (up to 2500 mg a day), vitamin C (200 – 500 mg daily), vitamin D (1000 units daily), and Black Elderberry (300 mg a day).
    2. Some reports have came out that say to wash your hands LONGER that the recommended 20 seconds – wash them for up to 2 minutes- go over each finger one by one, and go over every part of your hand, arms, face, and any area of your skin that is exposed. Now that they say the virus is airborne – make sure you cover up your ears and nose– since the virus can also enter your body that way – not just the mouth.
    3.  Clean off with cleaning wipes and/or Sanitizers every object in your home that you touch. The Coronavirus can stay in the air for up to 4 hours, and Scientists now say the virus is detectable: A) for up to 3 hours in aerosols. B) up to 4 hours on copper. C) up to 24 hours on cardboard. D) up to 2 to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel !
    4. Unfortunately there have been deaths reported in the same home, by one family member that had the Coronavirus and then passed it to another family member- even in the very same home ! Everybody has a different body makeup, immune system level, and a different level of overall health- so that they may have a higher chance of catching the virus and then spreading it to a loved one. You never know where that person has been- even just for a moment, or what they may have touched, or where they may have breathed in some bad air- so you must be extra aware of where all of your loved ones have been, and use all of the above precautions in the above paragraph #3. It is now sad to say – that it is NOT a good idea to have any visitors over to your home- due to the higher risk now of them having the virus- with out even knowing it – since they may not have any symptoms – and then bringing it in to you and your family, and/or anyone else living in your home. Of course in reverse the same reasoning applies- try to avoid going out to visit other people. To sum up- only leave your home if you really have to- only for food, drinks, and needed supplies; and if you do have to go outside – wear a mask, gloves, hat, and cloths that cover up all of your body, and speak out if someone stills comes within 6 feet of you. You can check out our story on Masks- that we posted yesterday. For loved ones and friends that do NOT live with you – you can call them on your phone, use the video on your phone or the webcam on your computer so that you can see them, or you can use Facebook Live, or a live podcast to send a live video of yourself out to people. Maybe there is some business where you can work at home, that does NOT need any in person contact – so that in certain areas you make actually take a bad situation and make it into a good one- and make some good money for yourself and your family!
    5. We had run a few stories on how stress can weaken your immune system – so that you have a higher chance of catching the Coronavirus , so that you would not be able to fight it off and get better – which can actually lead to death! Since then there have been many other news stories from other news outlets, doctors, and people that we work with that all have confirmed this fact. Being alone and depressed also has many of the same bad effects on your mind and body as does stress! Stress can be the direct and sole cause of acid reflux, skin problems, inflammation, premature aging, cancer, heart disease, and many other chronic health issues, and can even lead to death! I have already had my own personal problems with stress- so I already knew about all of the above effects from stress- as I learned all of these facts from my own doctors, specialists, health experts, friends, and from health conventions and clinics. In fact today a friend of mine told me that when he gets stressed out- he breaks out with a rash on his skin. Sometimes when I get stress I get heartburn so bad that it feels like a heart attack, and the acid reflux is so bad that I cannot sleep!  Then I get inflammation on certain areas of my skin that actually ruptured and caused me to bleed!  So as they say in sports do NOT “make an unforced error”, meaning do NOT do it to yourself, -do NOT hurt yourself. Do EVERYTHING you can to AVOID STRESSFUL Situations! This way you may actually save your own life and survive this Coronavirus if you catch it. Watch all those movies and TV shows that you have on your TV, read all those books you have at home that you never started to read, do all those chores around the house that you never have time for, and start some project that you always wanted to do- and try and have fun – within the safety of your own home!
    6. Many cases of people catching the Coronavirus, and even deaths are from people breathing in recycled air in enclosed areas such as : Airplanes, Trains, Buses, and buildings. When Central Air is used in the same enclosed areas with many people – you are breathing in the same air from people who may be sick- and you are trapped and forced to breath that bad air for a long period of time! So avoid using any public transportation, and going into public buildings as much as possible, and when you are at your own home- make sure you only use a regular Air Conditioner- that filters air from inside the one room you are in- and pushes it back outside- rather than using air from outside or from another part of the building that has air from other people that make be sick.
    7. Despite all the above prevention, and you do get COVID – then a very highly recommended way to fight COVID and get it out of your system so that you can 100% recover is by taking Ivermectin. Ivermectin is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic avermectin medicine. It is sold under brand names Stromectol in the United States, Ivomec in Europe by Merial Animal Health, Mectizan in Canada by Merck and Ivexterm in Mexico by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International. Ivermectin is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved antiparasitic drug that is used to treat several neglected tropical diseases, including onchocerciasis, helminthiases, and scabies. It is also being evaluated for its potential to reduce the rate of malaria transmission by killing mosquitoes that feed on treated humans and livestock. For these indications, ivermectin has been widely used and is generally well tolerated. Ivermectin is not approved by the FDA for the treatment of any viral infection.

      Proposed Mechanism of Action and Rationale for Use in Patients With COVID-19

      Reports from in vitro studies suggest that ivermectin acts by inhibiting the host importin alpha/beta-1 nuclear transport proteins, which are part of a key intracellular transport process that viruses hijack to enhance infection by suppressing the host’s antiviral response. In addition, ivermectin docking may interfere with the attachment of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) spike protein to the human cell membrane. Ivermectin is thought to be a host-directed agent, which may be the basis for its broad-spectrum activity in vitro against the viruses that cause dengue, Zika, HIV, and yellow fever. Despite this in vitro activity, no clinical trials have reported a clinical benefit for ivermectin in patients with these virusesSome studies of ivermectin have also reported potential anti-inflammatory properties, which have been postulated to be beneficial in people with COVID-19.

      Some observational cohorts and clinical trials have evaluated the use of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. Data from some of these studies can be found in Table 2c.

      Recommendation

      • There is insufficient evidence for the COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19. Results from adequately powered, well-designed, and well-conducted clinical trials are needed to provide more specific, evidence-based guidance on the role of ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19.

      Rationale

      Ivermectin has been shown to inhibit the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in cell cultures. However, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies suggest that achieving the plasma concentrations necessary for the antiviral efficacy detected in vitro would require administration of doses up to 100-fold higher than those approved for use in humans. Even though ivermectin appears to accumulate in the lung tissue, predicted systemic plasma and lung tissue concentrations are much lower than 2 µM, the half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) against SARS-CoV-2 in vitro. Subcutaneous administration of ivermectin 400 µg/kg had no effect on SARS-CoV-2 viral loads in hamsters. However, there was a reduction in olfactory deficit (measured using a food-finding test) and a reduction in the interleukin (IL)-6:IL-10 ratio in lung tissues

      Since the last revision of this section of the Guidelines, the results of several randomized trials and retrospective cohort studies of ivermectin use in patients with COVID-19 have been published in peer-reviewed journals or have been made available as manuscripts ahead of peer review. Some clinical studies showed no benefits or worsening of disease after ivermectin use. whereas others reported shorter time to resolution of disease manifestations that were attributed to COVID-19, greater reduction in inflammatory marker levels, shorter time to viral clearance, or lower mortality rates in patients who received ivermectin than in patients who received comparator drugs or placebo.

      However, most of these studies had incomplete information and significant methodological limitations, which make it difficult to exclude common causes of bias. These limitations include:

      • The sample size of most of the trials was small.
      • Various doses and schedules of ivermectin were used.
      • Some of the randomized controlled trials were open-label studies in which neither the participants nor the investigators were blinded to the treatment arms.
      • Patients received various concomitant medications (e.g., doxycycline, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, zinc, corticosteroids) in addition to ivermectin or the comparator drug. This confounded the assessment of the efficacy or safety of ivermectin.
      • The severity of COVID-19 in the study participants was not always well described.
      • The study outcome measures were not always clearly defined.

      Table 2c includes summaries of key studies. Because most of these studies have significant limitations, the Panel cannot draw definitive conclusions on the clinical efficacy of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19. Results from adequately powered, well-designed, and well-conducted clinical trials are needed to provide further guidance on the role of ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19.

      Monitoring, Adverse Effects, and Drug-Drug Interactions

      • Ivermectin is generally well tolerated. Adverse effects may include dizziness, pruritis, nausea, or diarrhea.
      • Neurological adverse effects have been reported with the use of ivermectin for the treatment of onchocerciasis and other parasitic diseases, but it is not clear whether these adverse effects were caused by ivermectin or the underlying conditions.
      • Ivermectin is a minor cytochrome P 3A4 substrate and a p-glycoprotein substrate.
      • Ivermectin is generally given on an empty stomach with water; however, administering ivermectin with food increases its bioavailability.
      • The FDA issued a warning in April 2020 that ivermectin intended for use in animals should not be used to treat COVID-19 in humans.
    8. Other items you can take after you have COVID are : doxycycline,  Which you can get the derivited Quinine founf over the counter in Tonic Water), azithromycin, zinc, and corticosteroids.

    You can drink Hydroxychloroquine, which you can get the derivative for: Quinine, that is found in Tonic Water, which you can get over the counter in stores. Originally used as a prophylactic against malaria, tonic water usually now has a significantly lower quinine content and is consumed for its distinctive bitter flavor. It is often used in mixed drinks, particularly in gin and tonic Benefits Of Tonic Water Treats muscle spasm. Tonic water contains quinine, an active ingredient that can help relax the muscles, therefore is beneficial to patients who suffer from spasm. Reduces stress. Tonic water is high in sugar since it is a carbonated drink. Great post-workout drink, moderates consumption of alcohol, and boosts energy levels! 

    Here’s some great advice we found from doctors on the front line:

    Virus Detection:

    • The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough.
    • The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days.
    • The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days.
    • Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing. The Common Cold is not accompanied, but there may be a choking sensation. In this case, the doctor should be called immediately.
    • Experts suggest doing this simple verification every morning: Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for 10 seconds.  If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection.  It is strongly recommended to do this control every morning.

    Prevention:

    • The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80°F (27°C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day.  These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.
    • Avoid drinking ice water or drinks with ice cubes.
    • Ensure that your mouth and throat are always wet, never DRY. You should drink a sip of water at least every 15 minutes. WHY?  Even when the virus enters water or other liquids through the mouth, it will get flushed through the esophagus directly into the stomach where gastric acids destroy the virus. If there is not enough water, the virus can pass into the trachea and from there to the lungs, where it is very dangerous.
    • For those who can, sunbathe. The Sun’s UV rays kill the virus and the vitamin D is good for you.  
    • The Coronavirus has a large size (diameter of 400-500 nanometers) so any face mask can stop it, no special face masks are needed in daily life.
    • If an infected person sneezes near us, stay 10 feet (3.3 meters) away to allow the virus fall to the ground and prevent it from falling on you.
    •  When the virus is on hard surfaces, it survives about 12 hours, therefore when hard surfaces such as doors, appliances, railings, etc. are touched, hands should be washed thoroughly and/or disinfected with alcoholic gel.
    •  The virus can live nested in clothes and tissues between 6 and 12 hours. Common detergents can kill it. Things that cannot be washed should be exposed to the Sun and the virus will die.
    •  The transmission of the virus usually occurs by direct infection, touching fabrics, tissues or materials on which the virus is present. 
    • Washing your hands is essential. So go to the nearest sink every chance you get.
    • The virus survives on our hands for only about 10 minutes. In that time many things can happen, rubbing the eyes, touching the nose or lips. This allows the virus to enter your throat. Therefore, for your good and the good of all, wash your hands very often and disinfect them.
    • You can gargle with disinfectant solutions (i.e. Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide) that eliminate or minimize the amount of virus that can enter the throat. Doing so removes the virus before it goes down to the trachea and then to the lungs.
    •  Disinfect things touched often: cellphone, keyboard, mouse, car steering wheel, door handles, etc
    • Please share this information with family, friends and acquaintances. We must take care of ourselves, for our good and the good of others. Below is a chart that compares this Virus to the Common Cold and Flu: 
      • How does it spread?

        The virus spreads through the air from coughing and sneezing and also from close personal contact like touching or shaking hands.

        How to help prevent the spread of coronavirus

        • Wash your hands often
        • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
        • When you sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue
        • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects
        • Drink plenty of fluids
        • Aim for eight hours of sleep each night
        • Eat a well-balanced diet

      How can you protect yourself or others from COVID‐19?

      You may be able to reduce your risk of infection by washing your hands often; avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands; and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. If you have cold-like symptoms, as a courtesy to your co-workers and others, please remain at home while you are sick. If you share a workstation or equipment with others, consider wiping it down with disinfectant wipes after use. For information about hand washing, see the CDC’s Clean Hands Save Lives website.

      What should you do if you suspect you or someone else has contracted COVID‐19?

      Most people with common human coronavirus illness will recover on their own. Although there are no specific treatments for illnesses caused by human coronaviruses, you can take the following actions to help relieve symptoms if you are mildly sick:

      • Take pain and fever medications. Ask your pharmacist how they may interact with any medications you currently take. Caution: The CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend not giving aspirin to children.
      • Use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough.
      • Drink plenty of liquids.
      • Stay home and rest.

      If you are concerned about your symptoms, please call your local health care provider. Telemedicine is a good first line of defense in order to limit potential exposure in a waiting room. CVS Health® offers Video Visits* in 40 states and Washington, D.C.

      Who should be tested for COVID‐19?

      The CDC recommends that anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, returning from a Centers for Disease Control designated Level 2 or Level 3 advisory area, or who has been in contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed of having the coronavirus within the last 14 days should be tested.

      If you suspect that you have contracted COVID‐19, where can you go to be tested?

      The U.S Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) to enable emergency use of the CDC’s 2019-nCoV Real‐Time RT‐PCR Diagnostic Panel. This authorization allows the use of the test at any CDC‐qualified lab in the U.S.

      A CORONA “Blessing” Story – With so much uncertainly and fear in the world right now, I wanted to share with you a story that I saw out of Italy. A priest said that he saw this situation in a way as a “blessing.” He said “This tragedy makes us realize how fragile life is and that we must live every moment as though it was our last. Life goes too fast, you must look around and spend it with those you love.”

It is certain, that we need each other to survive and thrive.” -Those were powerful words that touched my soul.-   All of us at Entertainment & Sports Today & Entertainment Today agree with these feelings and thoughts 100% – Make the best of everyday of your life! – so Please Share this !
