Here is some great advise how to deal with this typer of virus fromEarthley Wellness:
The news is abuzz with word of this new Wuhan coronavirus, warning people it could be the next global pandemic…should you worry about it?
Here’s what we know right now:
Symptoms for most people are mild, basically cold-like. Sore throat, runny nose, cough. Some people later experience shortness of breath or pneumonia, but it’s not clear how common that is. There have been “hundreds” of cases and 6 deaths, all in adults. Most cases have been in people over the age of 40.
Some sources are claiming there is a patent on this virus; but this is the SARS strain, not the Wuhan strain. A company named Novovax is working on a vaccine for it, but none is current available.
There is one case in Washington state, a man who had recently traveled in Wuhan, China. He is reported to be in “good condition.”
Most people do not need to go to the doctor if they get it. If they experience trouble breathing, they may need to go in for assistance.
Experts have no idea how the illness is transmitting right now, and with only a handful of cases, no idea how serious it actually is. They are checking travelers who come from Wuhan China to make sure they don’t have the illness before letting them into the country.
Based on the low amount of information, they are likely scaring people unnecessarily (they believe it is less deadly than SARS and that was a very minor event ultimately).
There are things you can do. Elderberry has been shown to inhibit coronaviruses, for example. Echinacea may also be beneficial. Other herbs have been investigated, like Red Spider Lily (native to China) and found to be beneficial. Peppermint, too, has been shown to be helpful!
Basically? Keep your herbs on hand and don’t worry too much. Most healthy people are probably safe from serious illness.
