Wikipedia has many excellent Coronavirus entries

2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak

  • "The first person known to have fallen ill due to the new virus was in Wuhan on 1 December 2019.
    A public notice on the outbreak was released 30 days later by Wuhan health authority on 31 December 2019;"
  • "On 6 February, the Chinese National Health Commission started to change how cases were reported – asymptomatic carriers, who tested positive for the virus but did not show clinical symptoms, would no longer be included in the number of confirmed cases. This had the effect of reducing the total number of cases reported, but also meant that potentially contagious individuals were ignored in reports."
  • "On 12 February, the Hubei government adopted a broader definition of confirmed cases, which now includes clinically diagnosed patients diagnosed by their symptoms and CT scans but without nucleic acid test, which can take days to process and delay treatment."

What China’s empty new coronavirus hospitals say about its secretive system
"Four days after its opening, the larger Leishenshan hospital had only 90 patients, on wards designed for 1,600, but was reporting no spare beds, Wuhan city health data, first reported by the Chinese magazine Caixin, showed. The other facility, Huoshenshan, had not yet filled its 1,000 beds a week after opening."

      Tried to get Vitamin D to COVID-10 in China

      VitaminDWiki sent 50 emails to Vitamin D researchers in China Feb 5 - received only a single reply
      Email suggested that 300,000 IU of vitamin D be given to 100 hospital patients and look for improved recovery in <5 days
      Vitamin D could be bought locally or sent for free by VitaminDWiki
      Next - VitaminDWiki is considering a similar email letter to vitamin D researchers in South Korea, where there is a lot of COVID-19 anxiety
         Note S. Koreans are 50X more likely to take supplements (such as vitamin D) than Chinese

      coronavirus quarantine NYT Feb 11

      • "Workers in protective gear were instructed to go to every home in the city (Wuhan) , removing infected residents to immense isolation wards built hastily in a sports stadium, an exhibition center and a building complex."
      • “There must be no deserters, or they will be nailed to the pillar of historical shame forever,” said Vice Premier Sun Chunlan, who is leading the government’s response to the virus.
      • "Wuhan’s makeshift shelters may yet become breeding grounds for infection, especially if patients are not properly screened, Dr. Markel and other experts said."
      • "The patients already are in a weakened state, and facilities like these make it easy for viruses and bacteria to travel
        — not just the coronavirus, but also any of the dozens of pathogens that may thrive when people gather in tight quarters."


      Vitamin D can be augmented by any of the following

      • Vitamin C, Quercetin, Zinc, – each of which improves immune systems
      • UV-C air purification – which reduces infection of others in the room and re-infection
        • Note UV-C disrupts the virus RNA, such that it cannot become active again
      • Inhaled Vitamin D – likely to provide prevention, it might provide treatment
      • room humidifier with possible vitamin D emulsion - likely prevention, unknown treatment
      • Vitamin D cream – faster than oral Vitamin D, gut-friendly, and no pills to swallow, but is 10X more expensive
      • Acivators of the Vitamin D Receptor (resveratorol, etc) - which increase vitamin D actually getting to cells

      Coronavirus Symptoms
      some will do better with a gut-friendly form of Vitamin D

      Image from USA Today - from CDC information
      Primarily the Coronavirus infects in the lungs, but sometimes also infects the gut (both humans and animals)

      Gut-Friendly forms of Vitamin D include emulsions, topical, and water soluable
      Patients with gut issues will probably respond better to gut-friendly forms of Vitamin D
      Oil-based vitamin D is the least gut-friendly

      Possibly there can be an Epidemic in China

      The" quarantine" (which should have been called a travel restriction)
      allowed 5 million to leave – thus allowing the virus to spread in China
      Note: People can be infected, become infectious, and not be detected as having a fever for many days
         during which time they could have traveled anywhere in the world.
      Note: An enveloped virus, similar to the Rhinovirus (common cold). can remain active on surfaces for 5 days

      Travel bans and quarantines have been shown to not work

      sometimes increasing the spread (see COVID-19 cruise ship in Japan above)
      Travel Bans and Quarantines Won't Stop Coronavirus Wired Magazine Feb 6, 2020

      • "Travel bans and quarantines are a centuries-old answer to the spread of disease. They’re also exactly what the World Health Organization asked everyone not to do. The same WHO committee that recommended calling the virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern explicitly said the measures to stop it should include treatment, tracing of contacts, and social distancing, but not “any travel or trade restriction.”
      • "In 2009, the influenza virus H1N1 went pandemic; other countries banned travel from North America, its apparent point of origin. China detained and quarantined planeloads of people. “Not only did it not work, but it likely exacerbated the pandemic,” Nuzzo says. (Getting confined with people who might be sick is a good way to get sick yourself, as any parent who stays home with a germy kid can tell you—and respiratory viruses are particularly good at this kind of hospital-based “nosocomial” infection.)"
      • "One 2011 study by a team of modelers in Europe and the US said that H1N1 travel bans reduced air travel to and from Mexico by 40 percent—with huge economic consequences—but didn’t slow the disease’s spread at all. "
      • "A 2014 British meta-analysis of 23 different studies of the effect of travel restrictions on influenza outbreaks concluded that they slowed disease spread by no more than 3 percent—less if the restrictions came late in the outbreak, and less in big cities. And an international team looking at the travel restrictions that came with the 2014 West African Ebola outbreak found much the same thing: They delayed the disease’s spread to other countries only by weeks, if at all."

      Surgical masks do not appear to stop viruses much

      Might make it worse do to poor handling, putting mask in pocket, future re-use
      Wearing a mask is perhaps as good as standing 6 feet from an infected person

      Note: Most people wear comfortable surgical masks, not the N95 masks which stop 95% of bacteria
      Note: Virus are 1000 X smaller than bacteria
      No Difference in Influenza Prevention Via Use of N95 Respirator or Medical Mask Sept 2019, Hospital personnel 8% vs 7.2%
         Randomized Controlled Trial  PDF Note: The trial unfortunately did not compare benefit of wearing vs not wearing any mask.

      The masks should be changed or disinfected each day - an enveloped virus can remain alive on a surface, such as a mask, for 5 days
         UV-C sanitizing wands are one of many ways to disinfect. I bought one on Amazon for $37
         Nice experiment in 2010 found extremely effective if 2" over a surface for 10 seconds , no information about time to kill viruses. It would take a long time to disinfect an entire hazmat suit

      Coronavirus still viable on surfaces 4 days later (as long as 9 days at room temperature)

      Note: Masks and gowns must be taken off carefully so as to not contaminate the person and should only be used once

      Coronaviruses attach to cells via ACE2, which is reduced by Vitamin D

      Coronaviruses attach to cells via ACE2, which is reduced by Vitamin D starts with the following

      Fact All Coronavirus attach to ACE2 enzyme in human cells
      Fact Vitamin D reduces ACE2 enzyme
      Fact All previous human Coronavirus are fought by Vitamin D
      Suspect Vitamin D will also fight the new form of Coronavirus, COVID-19
