COVID-19 Infection and Mortality Rate Questions

Person-to-person transmission of SARS-CoV-2 occurred between two people with prolonged, unprotected exposure while the first patient was symptomatic. Despite active monitoring and testing of 372 contacts of both cases, no further transmission was detected

The RKI added: ‘We don’t consider post-mortem tests to be a decisive factor.

‘We work on the principle that patients are tested before they die.’

But this means that if a person dies in quarantine at home and does not go to hospital, there is a high chance they will not be included in the statistics, as Giovanni Maga of Italy’s National Research Council pointed out in an interview with Euronews

“From this, we conclude that lithium, given along the lines of this model, can help to heal the damage caused by radiotherapy, even long after it was caused,” says lead author Giulia Zanni, postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University and former PhD student in Klas Blomgren’s group at Karolinska Institutet.

Significant Flu protection via Lactic Acid bacteria

Significant Flu protection via Lactic Acid bacteria

Animals administered lactobacillus casei nasally had a 100% survival rate compared to animals that did not which had a 100% fatality rate when exposed to lethal strains of Influenza A.
