Coronavirus Survival Guide recognizes that an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure. COVID-19 was probably developed in a military lab in China, and causes an eruption of a cytokine storm in victims if not treated early.
Summary of what is essential, explanations are below:
- Vitamin D at high 5,000 IU dosage (available from online vitamin stores)
- Zinc (available from online vitamin stores)
- Quercetin (an ionophore for zinc, also available at online vitamin stores)
- Aspirin or Tylenol
- Pulse oximeter ($10 cost online)
- Thermometer ($10 cost online)
- Access to an independent, preferably pro-life physician who is not controlled by a hospital
This survival guide includes these basic points:
- establish a good baseline of immunity with Vitamin D and zinc, both of which are inexpensively available at vitamin stores and online, preferably before you get sick.
- obtain the means to monitor your own oxygen levels with an inexpensive pulse oximeter (which cost only about $10 and is available online from multiple sources)
- recognize that early treatment is most effective, within a day of exposure to the illness and certainly within a day of symptoms
- one of the best tests if someone has COVID-19 is the loss of the sense of smell or other senses, such as taste or hearing
- prepare to opt for home care if you contract COVID-19, rather than hospital care where essential medication is being denied to patients
- have access to a free market physician who is not employed by a hospital so that you can get the prescriptions you need; some are available online for telemedicine
- know your full rights to walk out of a hospital "against medical advice" if it denies you access to helpful medication, such as hydroxychloroquine
It can be helpful to have these in ample supply pre-exposure:
- a pulse oximeter (cost is only about $10 online), and be sure to have extra replacement batteries for it
- a thermometer
- vitamin D (preferably the higher concentration 5000 IU doses)
- zinc (elemental zinc as it is commonly available is in higher doses than zinc sulfate, such that 50mg of zinc equals 220mg of "zinc sulfate")
- quercetin (an ionophore for the zinc)
- Advil or Tylenol or a substitute for reducing fever, which can spike as part of the cytokine storm caused by COVID-19
- calibrate your sense of smell (such as checking your ability to smell certain foods), so that you can detect early this telltale sign of COVID-19: a loss in smell.
Identify It as Early as Possible
Delay in responding to an exposure and suspected early symptoms can give the virus a harmful foothold in the body and a resultant cytokine storm that can be deadly a few days into the progression of the disease. Look for tell-tale signs as early as possible:
- loss of smell and/or taste, without a runny nose or blocked nose
- shortness of breath, or low oxygen levels (consistently below about 94%) on an inexpensive pulse oximeter
- dry cough
- chills, sometimes with shaking
- diarrhea or vomiting
Typically symptoms occur within 2-6 days of exposure, although in rare cases the disease can incubate for 14 days before manifesting itself.
Damage to Hearing
One model predicts that mortality from COVID-19 will double to nearly 400,000 deaths in the United States by early 2021. In addition, there can be long-term harm to organs and senses from COVID-19 among victims who survive.

- " According to the study, some of the telltale differences in smell loss due to regular cold and COVID-19 include: 1. Coronavirus patients are able to breathe freely even with a loss of smell 2. They do not have a runny nose or blocked nose 3. They are not able to differentiate between bitter and sweet taste The research further highlighted that the loss of smell and taste was more significant in coronavirus patients as they experienced ‘true loss of taste.’"
