How similar is the pathology of COVID-19 to other CoronaViruses?

    Monolaurin - Lauric acid - Coconut Oil
    Monolaurin is a metabolite of lauric acid, a compound found in coconut oil. Monolaurin displays powerful antiviral activity against multiple lipid enveloped viruses.

    There is no evidence to date that consuming coconut oil can prevent or treat coronavirus infections in people.

    Researchers have proposed a clinical trial using virgin coconut oil, monolaurin, and/or monocaprin (800 mg daily) in patients with COVID-19. This proposal has been published on the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines website.

    http://pennstatehershey.adam.com/content.aspx?productid=107&pid=33&gid=000333 Thiamine B1

    "Like other B-complex vitamins, thiamine is sometimes called an "anti-stress" vitamin because it may strengthen the immune system and improve the body's ability to withstand stressful conditions"

    Not suggesting corona virus is beri beri, but there are references to ATP, shortness of breath, fluid on the lungs.... If prescription meds are thiamine depleters, is the stress of a virulent virus able to act more aggressively in the already vulnerable when they become infected?

    We should not be surprised if coconut compounds (lauric acid, monolaurin) would work for COVID-19-- for years people have used it to fight lipid-enveloped herpes viruses like EBV. It is not a cure but can help beat down infections to give struggling patients a fighting chance. Same with IV C and oral C.

    That is a sobering thought-- this beast of a microbe may be shape-shifting (mutating) right before our very lives. Good luck with a vaccine if that is the case.

    I hope science can tell us soon why children < 19 yrs and many people have a mild form of COVID-19 disease, and others are stricken with a more virulent form.

    Young adults (like millennial generation) are not getting off scott free in this pandemic like they arrogantly assumed until now-- I too am reading more reports of this cohort getting very sick and dying of COVID-19. So much for their COVID-19 "boomer remover, i.e. old people killer" assumptions.

    Many researchers are working on increasing our understanding of how this virus works.

    Lockdowns and isolation are the main tools we have now to buy us valuable time for the scientific evidence to come in. With that knowledge in hand we can help people that are getting hit hard today with damaged lungs and even lost lives-- they will fare much, much better when that happens. Chloroquine appears to be an early champion in this effort.

    Jack did make a point yesterday during the Q & A that any mutations of the virus would be less virulent. If the virus is already mutating, this could be a reason why there are so many variations in illness. Again, that would be extremely unfortunate for the creation of a vaccine. Similar to why many get the flu even with the flu vaccine in them each year.

    It will be an absolutely fascinating journey of discovery when science unravels the mysteries of this bug. So many things not known for sure at this point.

    I have been wondering if those who recover from COVID-19 disease have temporary, or long-lasting immunity to it. With multiple strains out there, is each different serotype a new experience for human immune systems, or is there some transferable immunity?

    As I have said before, this virus is not what it seems to be (i.e. just an unfortunate epidemic).

    I think it is a world shaker sent by design by the Designer/Creator in charge.

    German virologes say that if you had it, you are immune.
    Maybe not forever, but at least for a year or couple years.

    I'm wondering if you've been exposed, but do not show symptoms, are you immune? I guess one can't determine if the exposure meant acquiring the virus.

    A very good question. No symptoms doesn't mean you are immune-- it merely means you're infected (and contagious) without symptoms.

    There are apparently many infected people with few/no symptoms that are unwittingly spreading the disease far and wide to unsuspecting people they are in contact with. That's how epidemics get into high gear.

    We hear news stories of people who have been exposed to known COVID-19 patients voluntarily self-isolating to avoid possibility they are contagious and could spread it to yet more people.
