In the past when the homeopaths got to treat the spanish flu(manmade pandemic) the death rates immediatey started to drop !

    What's pissing me off is I'm watching the news and watching people going out on boats, traveling main highways, cruise ships trying to inch back to port and people still going out and doing things when we're all under quarantine to help reduce the spread. Wanna know what a quarantine looks like? Barren roads, empty lakes, quiet buildings, no one outside. What's really happening is the opposite. I think each state needs to have their borders closed and have not one single vehicle pass through. If it does, blow it up. You know those sci-fi epidemic movies where they show zero tolerance for people trying to escape? That looks promising right now.

    I propose a way to cure for coronavirus. This method of treatment with disinfection follows the same path as the microbes and the corona virus went through and contacts them in the hearth they created. One infected at home how can I act! Sit down at a table and in front of you on the table we place an electric heater that we usually make coffee. They take a bowl and we put alcohol, a glass of water. We first heat Alcohol until it starts to form vapor and boil. We take a sheet and cover our head by also covering the bowl of boiling alcohol with the heat in front of our face. The sheet covers the head to the table surface thus creating a closed space with the bowl boiling in front of the face. We make a sheet near the mouth to discharge the breath we take out of this space. So we breathe inside the space and unload it outside. We breathe in slowly and deeply and we discharge the air from the space we slit through. We can take 10-15 breaths. This cycle is repeated 3-4 times a day for 4-5 days This procedure is followed for home quarantineers Whereas for the hospitalized, alcohol vapors can be placed through the breathing tubes. Hot air mixed with alcohol vapor destroys the corona virus Inventor Arben Vrapi Tirana Albania Contact +38349207113 WhatsApp or Viber

    I wish to stay at home during the lock down, but I can't, I have to going to work, because they still open. This is a golden age for them, we have like 100% increase in sales, and I just working on warehouse which is selling glass/plastic bottles, lotion pumps, atomisers etc. Company across the road is closed from Tuesday (Mentholatum) which they were producing pain reliefs for muscles and joints, they were more relevant to stay open. In my company they only want profit, make numbers, to beat the target. So not everyone can stay at home. Some of us need to work. So you bastards who get 3 weeks of pause from work stop complaining that you need to stay at home and you are bored because you can't go outside. I wish to have this 3 week too to stay at home. I will watch films, play video games, read books, listen music, etc. I do not have any problem to stay at home, I can entertain myself at home on many levels.

    A physiotherapist who deals with lung disorders and is a specialist in respiration passed some information on to me which is not yet in the public domain. The virus is causing a build-up of phlegm on the lungs which is a lot thicker than usual. If you are infected and just laying in bed, the phlegm is solidifying, once that happens, it can't be removed. 1: If you are coughing up green or yellow phlegm, your body is fighting the infection. 2: If the phlegm is a dark grey colour, your body is losing the fight and you have pneumonia, call 999 3: If you are infected, huffing (the medical terminology) is effective at clearing your lungs. Take a deep breath and exhale as quick as you can, imagine a smudge on glass or a mirror and exhale as if you are trying to steam up a mirror, do it with as much power as you can muster. it helps with lifting the phlegm from your lungs. do this repeatedly all through the day, maybe 2 or 3 times an hour. 4: The old tried and tested method of a bowl of steaming hot water with some Vicks is effective too, put your head over the bowl, use a towel to cover your head, do this 5 times a day (or more if you feel it necessary). 5: DO NOT USE COUGH SYRUP, if you're coughing, you don't want to suppress the cough on this one as you need to be coughing phlegm up. 6: It may be difficult,'s important to not be laid in one position for too long, this is causing phlegm to pool in your lungs. If you are infected catnap throughout the day and night, don't seep all the way through. It's important to keep as mobile as you possibly can. PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN, IT MAY SAVE LIVES.
