Coronavirus: Good Information & Advice, But Not a Warning

Recommended Posts

We are currently in the early phases of a worldwide coronavirus (COVID19) epidemic and probable pandemic. We receive conflicting and incomplete information. It seems that the virus hardly affects children and younger people but can be deadly for middle age and older people, especially those with other pre-existing health problems.


We are fortunate to live in the mountains of Panama where the humidity is reasonably low this time of year and away from major travel centers, although we do have tourists who come here from various areas where there may already be infections of the virus.


It appears that people can become infected by the coronavirus and show no symptoms for several days (up to 21) yet be contagious during that time. This is a very dangerous aspect of the virus.  If the person is young, he or she may then have very mild symptoms and never really be very sick. But other people, particularly those over the age of 65 could develop severe symptoms. One estimate is that about 14% of those over 65 who have the disease will die. I cannot guarantee that this is correct, because a lot of information is still being evaluated.


A report by Mike Adams on March 5 discussed his careful mathematical projections, based on conservative assumptions. He says that without major US government action this month, including strong travel restrictions within the US and internationally, deaths in the US could be over two million people by the first week of July. Adams was not saying that the deaths WILL reach such numbers because he is confident that travel restrictions and other serious controls such as quarantines and lockdowns will be imposed.


Based on the progression of the disease in the US and several other countries outside China, including South Korea, Italy, Iran, France and Germany, control is very difficult.


There is a web page that provides close to real-time numbers regarding the epidemic. You can check it here: Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS Clicking on the red dots will show the numbers of cases in each location.


Panic is not the answer, but knowledge and preparation are the answers.


First, realize that you may live in an area that remains safe. But do not count on that. Avoid large gatherings of people. Avoid touching commonly used objects such as doorknobs, shopping carts, public transportation vehicles, etc. Realize that masks do little or no good unless you have the disease yourself or are in close contact with people known to have the disease or family members with the disease. Some companies are promoting masks and selling them for $49 when they are worth around $2. Avoid shaking hands, hugging and kissing; it's better to be a curmudgeon than a cadaver.


Make your immune system as strong as possible through the use of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, colloidal silver, garlic, etc. This is not a complete list. Do some research. If you receive information that there are infected persons in this area, quarantine yourself in your home as much as possible and avoid all unnecessary contacts. Increase the dosages of things you are taking for prevention of infections.


Below is an article about using colloidal silver to prevent and treat Coronavirus.


I make and sell colloidal silver, but I don't care where you buy it so long as you have some on hand and know how to use it to protect yourself. I have not raised my prices for this situation. They have been the same for seven or eight years. This post is already long, so I will stop here (except for the article below). If you have questions, send them to me at usn11958@gmail,com


I did not write the article. A very knowledgeable man did. The article was written a few weeks ago, and the writer did not take the coronavirus threat as seriously as Mike Adams and others with more recent information.  If you would like a copy of the article sent to your email, send an email to me.  I am not a medical doctor, and this is not medical advice. Read the article, and be safe.

Killer Chinese Coronavirus and Colloidal Silver

Are you worried about the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” that the news media suddenly has everyone all hyped up about? And are you wondering whether or not colloidal silver will help stop it?

Let’s take a look, first, at the supposed Chinese coronavirus “pandemic,” to see if we really have anything to worry about. Then we’ll take a look at the growing body of evidence for using colloidal silver should such a “pandemic” ever actually develop.

If you’ll stick with me to the end, I’ll even give you my thoughts on how I’d personally use colloidal silver should the new “killer Chinese coronavirus” begin spreading throughout the U.S.

A Quick Trip Down Memory Lane

Remember back in the 2005 when the famous “Bird Flu” from Asia was going to race across the globe and kill millions of innocent people?

The news media claimed that a bird virus somehow “jumped species” and began infecting humans. And they dubbed it to be a “looming pandemic,” meaning it would eventually wreak havoc on people worldwide, killing millions upon millions.

Here’s the part you might not know about: The big drug companies then used the “Bird Flu” scare to convince western governments throughout Europe, America and Canada into stockpiling billions of dollars worth of the worthless antiviral drug, Tamiflu.

Indeed, taxpayer money was used to buy up just about every available bottle of the antiviral drug, worldwide, as a means of helping “prevent a coming pandemic.”

In the U.S., alone, a staggering $1.3 billion in taxpayer money was used to buy up a “strategic reserve” of Tamiflu. And throughout the world, governments spent nearly $9 billion of taxpayer money on this same drug.

Then, just as suddenly as it appeared, the “Bird Flu” disappeared.

And governments got stuck holding the bag, with warehouses full of a virtually worthless “antiviral drug” that studies had later determined only cut one-half day off the course of a typical viral infection. And even then, the drug had to be taken before the infection started in order to be effective.

And that’s how the big multi-national drug companies make sure they never lose a penny on drugs they’ve developed, even when those drugs are rife with side effects and virtually useless for their intended purpose.

The powers-that-be simply scare the living bejabbers out of the public, first. Then they sell them something to “protect them.” A Mafia protection racket works no differently.

Indeed, as Dr. Peter Gotzsche of the famous Cochrane Collaboration states in his book, Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Health Care: Organized crime is the business model of big pharma.”

3 More Quick Examples

Here’s another quick example: What about the Swine Flu “epidemic” of 2009? That one, the news media told us, was caused by a bird virus that mysteriously combined with a pig virus, and then mutated to infect humans.

At the time, the news media assured us that “tens of thousands of people” were already being infected throughout the U.S., and that “millions would die.” Everyone was urged to run out and get their flu shots as quickly as possible. Flu shots sold out in days. So did face masks.

But as TV investigative reporter Sheryl Attkinson later reported, it turned out that health authorities hadn’t even been checking sick people for the “swine flu” virus in the U.S.

Indeed, the CDC, FDA and other health authorities were simply attributing every single upper respiratory illness in the U.S. that year to the “Swine Flu,” so they could claim that it “killed 22,000 Americans” when, in reality, they couldn’t point to even a single death from the actual “Swine Flu” virus. Not one.

In reality, most all of the deaths that year were from the normal flu, which the CDC admits kills some 36,000 Americans per year, virtually every year. But millions of Americans were stampeded to get their flu shots, and the big vaccine manufacturers reaped hundreds of millions more dollars in profits.

Another example: Perhaps you’ll remember just six short years ago, in 2014, when the powers-that-be and their news media lackeys drummed up the Ebola panic, telling us it was “inevitable” that the dreaded Ebola virus would flood into the U.S. from the Congo “any day now” and “infect millions.”

Yet it never happened, even though we were repeatedly assured by the news media – for weeks on end – that Ebola-infected individuals were “on their way to the U.S.” and that the resulting death toll from the coming epidemic would be “unstoppable.”

What happened? Nothing.

The entire nation was panicked so drug-makers could get the governments of the world to fund development of a new Ebola vaccine with taxpayer money – a vaccine which, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out, was actually developed, and didn’t do a thing to stop the new 2019 Ebola outbreak in the Congo, in spite of some 130,000 doses being administered to the “most at risk” population in the Congo.

And who can forget about the most recent foreign virus scare, from 2017, i.e., the dreaded Zika virus scare?

We were told the virus was invading the U.S. from Brazil…that mosquitoes were carrying it throughout the southern U.S…and that it would cause genetic mutations in the babies of all pregnant mothers that got infected.

But what actually happened?

Err…nothing. It all quietly went away in a matter of weeks. The only thing keeping the scare going was the news media propaganda, replete with photos of pregnant women and dead or deformed babies. When the propaganda finally stopped, amazingly, the disease disappeared, along with all of the fear that had been drummed up.

Bats and Snakes and Mice, Oh, My!

Now, this year, 2020, we’re being treated to the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” scare.

The news media tells us this particular coronavirus is somehow passed to humans who have eaten bats, snakes and mice. Oh, my!

Then, the humans supposedly pass the virus they got from eating bats, snakes and mice along to other humans. Through coughing. Just like the flu.

Hmm. Has anybody checked to see if it actually is the flu? It’s flu season, after all. Right?

Even if this killer Chinese coronavirus is real, there’s one big problem with the scenario they’re painting for us here in the west: In Asia, people have been eating bats, snakes and mice for centuries. It’s nothing new. And it’s never caused a global viral pandemic in the past. So once again, I find myself saying, “Hmm.”

Today’s news media is extremely sophisticated, in terms of propaganda. They’re actually tagging this supposedly “looming new threat” with every emotional element they know causes a deep and abiding sense of fear in people. Think about it. The mystery virus, we’re told by the media, is:

  • From the darkest reaches of China, with the implication being that it’s “foreign”…it’s out to get us…and therefore it’s a far more serious threat than anything domestic.

  • It originates from bats, snakes and mice – yes, three creatures everyone in the west cringes at the very sight of. If you want to make a westerner squeamish with fear, just yell, “Look, snake!” or “Look, mice!” or “Look, bats!”

  • It’s “mutating rapidly out-of-control – in other words, it’s like a Frankenstein monster turned loose on the streets; you’d better lock yourself and the children inside, because the killer Chinese coronavirus is coming for you!

  • It’s killing people, for goodness sakes! (But you have to read the fine print to find out that so far, as of this writing, only 17 people have died from this virus in China, out of a population of 1.3 billion .)

These are just some of the emotional “triggers” the news media are using to make the “killer Chinese coronavirus” appear to be a looming global threat.

Repeat these emotional triggers often enough, day after day after day, on national TV, and couple them with dramatic photos of people in China wearing face masks for protection, and voila’, you get a panicked population here in the U.S..

Yes, even if not one word of the hype is true.

Why Do They Want to Promote Panic Now?

But why would the news media want to promote such a crazy state of global panic?

Well, who could possibly benefit the most from drumming up fear of a foreign killer virus?

Do I really need to tell you? Yes? Okay then. The answer is this:

Vaccine makers.

And sure enough, a drug manufacturing company called Novavax announced this past week that their stock had soared some 68% virtually overnight due to the fact they’ve been working on a vaccine for the “deadly coronavirus from China.”

So there’s a brand new vaccine in the making for this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus. No big surprise, right?

Any salesman or marketer will tell you that the #1 tool for promoting sales is…drum roll, please…fear. If you make people believe their lives are in imminent danger, they’ll pretty much buy whatever you’re selling. And they’ll do so immediately.

And that’s what’s coming down the pike, folks: A long and sensationalistic news media campaign to scare people like you and me into submitting to an annual coronavirus vaccine, along with the usual annual flu shots. It’s coming. They’ll probably even start giving it to babies. You can bank on it. Novavax certainly is.

A Genetically Engineered Vaccine?

There’s one crucial piece of information you need to know about this new vaccine being developed for the Chinese coronavirus: According to Novavax, the vaccine uses a “recombinant nanoparticle.”

Yes, that means it’s a genetically engineered vaccine. Indeed, Novavax openly admits on their website for this vaccine that they developed it from the genetically engineered cells of…bugs. Yes, bugs. In this case, a crop-damaging worm called an Armyworm that, in nature, eventually turns into a moth.

But genetically modified worm cells won’t be the only thing you’ll get in your upcoming coronavirus vaccine. Nosiree. You’ll get genetically modified worm cells that have been infected with another virus! And it’s an insect virus. As Novavax states on their website:

We produce our vaccine nanoparticles in cells originally isolated in the 1970s from the ovaries of the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda).

The Sf9 insect cell line can grow in apparent perpetuity when infected with a baculovirus (BV), a virus that infects only insects.

Because a baculovirus can be engineered to carry one or more foreign genes of interest, it can be used to “program” (infect) the Sf9 cells to efficiently produce the desired protein or proteins that are correctly folded and biologically active.

Novavax uses the Sf9 system to construct recombinant protein nanoparticles that have the potential to provide increase protection.”

So they want to inject you and your children or grandchildren with the genetically modified cells of dead worms that have been infected with a supposedly “benign” insect virus, in order to protect you from a virus that originated from Chinese people eating snakes, bats and mice!

What could possibly go wrong?

As one of my favorite journalists, Jon Rappoport, has stated on his popular blog site, NoMoreFakeNews.com:

“…that means the vaccine will permanently alter the genetic makeup of anyone who takes the shot.”

Oh, joy. That’s one more vaccine I simply won’t be taking. How about you?

Can you imagine what it would take to convince people in the western world to take this new vaccine made of genetically modified worm genes combined with an insect virus? Well, if you thought “loads of fear” you’re right. That’s exactly what it would take. And that’s exactly what they’re giving us.

Author Jon Rappoport goes on to say,

You automatically believe this Chinese coronavirus is a killer?

You automatically believe the press when they ratchet up the fear?

You automatically believe medical experts have found a virus and proved it’s causing human illness?

You’re now on the Gong Show on roller skates.


As you can probably tell, Jon Rappoport – who’s been writing about viruses and vaccines since 1987, including a best-selling book on the subject – isn’t too keen on the scare tactics being used by the news media to promote fear over non-existent “viral pandemics.”

He’s not even sure if this new Chinese coronavirus actually exists, or causes any disease at all in humans. Or is it all just media-driven hype to help promote the coming vaccine?

Don’t Let Them Get You Too Worked Up Over It

We’ve seen all of this far too many times in the past. There’s nothing new under the sun, and that includes deception from our government and corporate overlords, so they can make more money off of us and gain more control over us.

So don’t let the news media get you too worked up over this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus issue.

The powers-that-be always try to make these things sound like a “global pandemic,” when, in reality, to date, only about five hundred people have been infected in China.

And as of this writing, only 17 of those people have died, compared to 36,000 people who die from the common flu each and every year right here in the U.S.

Look, even a single death is one death too many. But 17 deaths out of 1.3 billion people is hardly the stuff “epidemics” are made of.

Clearly, you’re far better off  preparing to fend off the good ole USA flu (which kills 36,000 Americans per year) than worrying about some obscure virus from China that mostly infects people who eat bats, snakes and mice.

The news media is really trying to hype this “killer Chinese coronavirus” out of all proportion to reality. They’re going overboard with it.

But like all of the other strange viral epidemics and pandemics we’ve been promised over the last ten years, this one, too, will most likely drift away with a whimper rather than go out with a bang.

Is Colloidal Silver Effective Against
The Chinese Killer Coronavirus?

Since the killer Chinese coronavirus is said to be relatively new, having only recently mutated from snakes, bats and mice to the point it could infect humans, there’s quite literally zero scientific info as to whether colloidal silver (or anything else, for that matter) would work against it.

But…colloidal silver has been known to work against a number of other coronaviruses. So let’s take a look at what the existing literature says:

According to Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, Lauderhill, Florida:

“…A study at the University of Arizona recently showed ionic silver to be effective against the coronavirus that researchers use as the surrogate for SARS.”

SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The coronavirus behind SARS produces the same kind of respiratory syndrome as caused by the new Chinese coronavirus. According to a Business Wire article about the study:

The study tested various ionic silver and copper levels to determine if they were effective against the human coronavirus strain 229E, a strain commonly used as a surrogate for the SARS virus in laboratory research.

The research demonstrated significant reductions of the virus within 1 hour (90 percent) and reduced virus levels to below the detection limit following 24 hours of exposure (99.99 percent).”

Wow. In this study, the researchers saw a 90% reduction in coronavirus levels within the first hour, and a 99.99% reduction within 24 hours.

This research demonstrates that ionic silver has the potential to deactivate viruses in a relatively short period of time,” said Jeff Trogolo, Ph.D., chief technology officer, AgION Technologies, Inc.

That’s actually quite amazing. So now we know for sure that the ionic form of colloidal silver – aka electrically generated colloidal silver – works against at least one extremely serious form of coronavirus.

That’s heartening, right? But it’s certainly not all we have to go on. Let’s keep digging:

At the above link you’ll find a retrospective study of silver-based therapeutics and their effects on viruses, published in the Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (June 2003).

The authors concluded that even with the SARS coronavirus, “swift reduction of viral loads” could be achieved using “oligodynamic Ag1” (i.e., electrically generated colloidal silver). Here’s what they stated:

State-of-the-art, electrolytically produced ‘oligodynamic’ Ag1…offers distinct advantages and versatility of use over older and cruder formulations.

Possessing much smaller, subnanometer-sized particles, greater electrical potential and lower concentrations, it is more bio-available than other formulations.

Efficacy against the SARS-related coronavirus, for example, may be enhanced when nebulized Ag1 is inhaled. This should achieve swift reduction of viral loads, especially in the early stages.”

As you can see, the study authors recommend using the ionic form of colloidal silver, with a nebulizer, so it can be atomized into a mist and easily inhaled into the lungs. After all, the coronavirus is a respiratory virus.

So if you’d like to learn more about using colloidal silver in a nebulizer in order to get silver particles into your respiratory system during times of cold or flu (or coronavirus threat), see the following article and short video:

The study authors conclude by stating that electrically-generated colloidal silver appears to be effective against coronavirus even in its mutated forms. They wrote:

The only known mechanism of resistance also appears to play no role notwithstanding the mutability of the coronavirus. Therefore no functional barrier to the virotoxic effects of oligodynamic Ag1 may be expected regardless of the rapidity or variety of mutations.”

So it’s unlikely the coronavirus can mutate to the point that silver is not effective against it. But that’s still not all I’ve found. Let’s keep digging:

The European Patent

Did you know there’s actually an international patent, from a Japanese chemical manufacturing company, for using silver ions to inactivate the coronavirus on walls, floors, countertops, clothing and other “touch surfaces”?

Well, there is, and you can read it, here:

According to the patent, silver ions can be used to completely inactivate the coronavirus on surfaces. They write:

The present invention relates to an anti-coronaviral agent that is effective in treating coronaviruses and can be mixed with plastics, paints and the like. It also relates to an anti-coronaviral product made from fibers, resins and others that contain the anti-coronaviral agent.”

The researchers go on to say:

“…the problem can be solved by using a silver ion as an active ingredient and having the silver ion stably held by a carrier…which is useful for inactivating a coronavirus, and also relates to a method for inactivating a coronavirus using the silver ion carrier according to the present invention.”

Pretty exciting stuff, right?

Silver ions – the form of silver you can make for just pennies with any good colloidal silver generator – inactivates coronavirus on surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. So it would likely do so inside the human body, as well, don’t you think?

At the very least, if the new killer Chinese coronavirus becomes a true threat here in the U.S., you can spray colloidal silver on your home’s touch surfaces each day (i.e., doorknobs, countertops, cutting boards, toilet seats, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.) in order to help stop the virus from being picked up and spread by others.

You could even run some colloidal silver in a cool mist vaporizer so silver ions would be spread as a mist throughout your home!

There’s a lot of peace of mind in that, don’t you think?

The Chinese Study

There’s also a very interesting clinical study out of China, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, in which researchers mixed silver nanoparticles with graphene (i.e., carbon atoms, known as fullerenes) and tested them against a coronavirus known to infect cats.

The researchers found that while graphene alone did not inhibit growth of the coronavirus very much, the graphene mixed with silver nanoparticles did.

This study, having been conducted on the feline coronavirus, reminds me of the time a reader wrote in about using colloidal silver to heal his cat that was afflicted with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), which, according to Cornell University, is actually caused by a coronavirus.

The reader wrote me to say that while their veterinarian had pronounced a death sentence on the sick cat, the colloidal silver saved its life. Here’s what he wrote:

Using the “standard” colloidal silver concentration produced during a three-hour generation from our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, we have successfully cured two different infections that conventional medicine has not consistently addressed.

In particular, Bruiser, our Japanese Bobtail, was sentenced to certain death by a local vet who declared that the kitty’s illness indicated by lab tests was FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) and was incurable.

Three other vets confirmed the FIP and the death sentence, including an area alternative medicine vet who refused my suggestion to try colloidal silver, and abused the kitty with vitamin shots to no avail.

For the first few months after Bruiser’s veterinarians failed to successfully address the FIP, my wife and I gave him an eyedropper full (approximately 1 teaspoon) several times daily. His appetite improved quickly and he started playing with his sister again, so we reduced the dosage to several times a week.

Bruiser is now another five years older (total six+ years) and is well and healthy. We occasionally fill an eye dropper and give him a drink if he seems to be feeling lethargic.

We feel that colloidal silver performed miraculously, where conventional ‘cat medicine’ and veterinarians failed the test!”

Dale T., CO

Remember, this cat had an “incurable” coronavirus infection, very similar to what’s infecting people in China right now. And we have a number of similar accounts in the hopper. Here’s one more quick one:

Hi Steve! I wanted to give you an update on ‘Ditto,’ my kitten with FIP.

He’s been on the Silver since last year. He should be a year old around May, they aren’t sure when he was born. He was pulled from his mom at a young age.

I’m just glad we ended up with him. Having FIP, most people just put them to sleep because it’s 100% fatal.

Well, the Colloidal Silver is keeping him alive. I’m so glad I came across your site. I will keep you posted as time goes on. THANK YOU!

BTW, at first, we just gave Ditto straight colloidal silver in place of her regular water, for a couple of days.

Then, we decreased the dosage to about a 1/2 cup of colloidal silver added to her water for the next couple of weeks.

When she was so sick she wasn’t drinking our eating, we had to give the colloidal silver to her through a medicine dropper. We gave her as much as she would take, and she actually loved it.”

Shelly PB

Once again, don’t forget: FIP is caused by an “incurable” coronavirus that afflicts cats. Yet colloidal silver seems to be able to cure it quite handily. Which is good news for those of us who might be concerned about this new coronavirus coming out of China.

The Final Solution?

Finally, two highly respected researchers, Dr. Eric Gordon, MD and Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD, writing in the prestigious Townsend Letter for Doctors, believe colloidal silver is the answer to many forms of viral infections, including serious upper respiratory viral infections and viral pandemics such as those caused by coronaviruses.

They wrote:

During the past 300 years, humanity has suffered 10 pandemics and several epidemic scares. Could the solution to pandemics have a simple answer? Has Nature always held the key to defeating pathogens in a simple Ag+ [i.e., ionic silver] molecule?”

They then point out in their scientific white paper titled “A Promising Cure for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection Pandemics, Including the Avian Flu: Has the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues Been Discovered?” that the collective authoritative medical literature has documented efficacy of silver’s virotoxicity against over 24 viruses.”

What’s more, the authors state that the 200-plus viral strains known to cause upper respiratory tract infections, including most flu viruses, will also most likely succumb to the powerful antiviral qualities of very small particles of “oligodynamic silver” (i.e., a medical reference to electrically-generated colloidal silver being extremely powerful even in small quantities).

In fact, the authors point out that silver is likely going to be the answer to any future global viral pandemic, stating:

A broad-spectrum anti-viral agent that really works is needed to combat over 200 viruses that cause Upper Respiratory Tract Infections. Undoubtedly oligodynamic silver fits this bill…Emerging medical studies confirm the stellar, broad-spectrum virotoxic efficacy of oligodynamic silver both in vitro and in vivo.”

What’s more, the authors state that not only has silver been demonstrated to decimate many of the viruses associated with deadly viral infections, but it has also been proven to decimate most of the well-known bacterial pathogens that cause serious secondary infections during a viral infection, including the following:

  • Streptococcus pneumonia

  • Corynebacterium diphtheriae

  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae

  • Klebsiella pneumoniae

  • Haemophilus influenzae

  • Bordetella pertussis

  • Mycobacterium (Tuberculosis)

  • Inflammatory conditions of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat

  • Spring Catarrh

  • Pneumococci

  • Pneumonia

It’s these secondary bacterial infections that often kill the infected individual, once the flu virus has sufficiently weakened the body.

But colloidal silver’s powerful, broad-spectrum anti-viral qualities covers such a wide range of viral pathogens you can easily see why the report’s authors – both respected medical doctors – refer to silver as “the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues.”

Summing It All Up…

We’ve now got wall-to-wall 24/7 news media coverage of the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, even though, as of this writing, only about 17 people have died and about 500 have been infected, out of a population of 1.3 billion Chinese.

That works out to one infected person per every 76 million people in China.

In other words, even at its epicenter, in China, the disease is barely causing a ripple. Yet the western news media assures us the world is about to end, and that a Chinese coronavirus that normally infects snakes, mice and bats is going to be the culprit.

We can also conclude with a great deal of confidence that the news media’s fearful drumbeats are most likely designed to ramp up public acceptance – yes, even stimulate public demand – for the coming new coronavirus vaccine, which, according to the vaccine maker, contains genetically modified worm genes infected with an insect virus.

Yummy. Fine dining at its best, right? Hey, they only have our best interests at heart. How could you possibly believe otherwise?

And finally, we’ve learned that while colloidal silver has not yet been tested against the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, it has indeed been demonstrated in medical studies to be effective against other coronaviruses, such as the SARS coronavirus.

This has led natural health experts to proclaim that silver should be equally effective against newly developing coronaviruses, as well.

We’ve also seen that a Japanese chemical conglomerate operating out of Europe has patented a technique for using silver ions to stop the spread of coronaviruses on touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, toilets, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.

And we’ve seen that a medical retrospective of studies on the subject of silver’s effectiveness against viruses has led researchers to believe that colloidal silver would indeed be effective against modern-day plague viruses such as the coronaviruses.

So I’ll be sticking with my colloidal silver, should this viral outbreak in China actually become a worldwide pandemic.

What I’d Do if the Chinese Coronavirus Arrives

If I was concerned about catching this virus – which, at this point in time, I’m definitely not – I’d probably take an ounce of colloidal silver per day as a prophylactic measure, meaning, as a means of helping prevent the virus from taking hold inside my body should I ever be exposed to it.

If I thought I’d already been infected with the Chinese coronavirus, I’d certainly consider taking the following four simple steps:

1.) I’d drink an ounce of colloidal silver up to four times per day.

2.) I’d nebulizer colloidal silver into my lungs up to three or four times per day, for maybe five minutes at a time.

3.) I’d use a pump spray bottle with a fine mist nozzle to spray the various touch surfaces in my home with colloidal silver, i.e., kitchen countertops, sinks, toilets, doorknobs, etc. – anything people in my home commonly touch throughout the course of a day.

4.) I’d get plenty of bed rest, and drink plenty of fluids, as per any other upper respiratory viral infection.

Now, those are just my thoughts. They’re not a “prescription” from me, so please don’t take it as being so. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a journalist with a peculiar interest in natural health.

My main point is this: Don’t let the news media panic you with their fear-mongering tactics. They’ve had a nearly 20-year Reign of Error on predicting epidemics and pandemics. All of their predictions, for the most part, have been abysmal failures.

They say even a broken clock is right twice a day. And that’s true. So sooner or later the medical authorities are going to get one right. Maybe this one. But even then, we’ve got colloidal silver in our corner. So why worry? And why allow ourselves to be driven by fear?

Keith, this is not a way to promote my product.  It is a legitimate announcement of information about the current coronavirus situation.  Should the fact that I happen to spend a lot of my time studying alternative medicine and that I happen to make colloidal silver be a reason NOT to provide information that will help people protect themselves from infection or treat such an infection should they get one?

I also recommended Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Garlic, none of which I sell.  Is it okay to recommend them and NOT colloidal silver, even though it is very good at killing viruses?. 

I pointed out that I did not write the article.  The guy who did write it makes and sells colloidal silver generators.  But he is completely sold out of them, and the article is not there to sell colloidal silver generators but to help people.  Can you not understand such things?

By the way, for general information, and I have not independently confirmed it, this evening I received the following news item:

The seal on the news item above appears to say "Costa Rica" and does not appear to be a news item from Panama.  Apparently, so far there has been no report of cases in Panama.  This is a bit like being in Tennessee and learning that there are five cases in Kentucky, a hundred or two hundred miles away.

There has to be a better way to promote your product than this.

We are at risk here.  At this point everyone is on their own.  Those that believe in certain protective and curative modalities , and care about friends and neighbors here are sharing information.  One thing is clear.: there is NO CURE for this virus right now .  Either the immune system kicks it, or it succumbs and the patient fails.   Antibiootics kill bacteria...not viruses.  Vit C in mega doses.....may help .   For me, I'd rather NOT get it so I've become a bit OCD on cleaning.  With this wind?....if someone sneezes across the street it's in my face in 2 seconds.

From the Center for Disease Control in the US, the 2017-2018 flu season saw 959,000 hospitalizations for the flu in the US, with 61,099 deaths. Last year, 2018-2019 season, the numbers were 490,000 and 34,200.

Of the 100+ deaths so far in Italy, the average age was 81 (42% aged between 80 and 89, 14% aged 90 and older, 73% male).

My next birthday will be my 81st. My perspective is that a healthy immune system is what protects a person from the consequences of having the virus. I am assuming that I will unknowingly have the virus at some point. I am boosting my immune system with vitamin C and Zinc supplements (the latter to get those T-cells going) and Curcumin to have a defense against inflammation, which is how pneumonia kills.

Speaking on “America’s Newsroom” this week, Dr. James Phillips, operational medicine fellowship director at George Washington University, said that most people who contract the coronavirus will “do just fine.”

“Most of us are going to get this virus. It’s undeniable,” said Phillips. “You won’t find a single expert out there who is saying that this is going to be contained. “And, the more we learn about it, the more we see that the spread is going to be global and, for the most part, that’s OK because the data we know from China shows that roughly 98 to 99 percent of us are going to do very, very well.”

Here's a link to the good doctor's interview if you want more (he's an emergency room specialist):

I wonder how many of the deaths reported by the CDC were dismissed as "flu" related ..... when then may have been something else (i.e. coronavirus ... COVID-19)??

Numbers can be skewed and reported in many ways ... to strengthen an argument one way .... or another.

Here are the Chinese figures for coronavirus deaths by age group.  This tends to be an argument against the "weaponized virus" theory, since such a weapon would probably target people of military age.

Well....my hunch is many if not most, will be exposed to this.  The virus sails in the wind with a cough, on hands, on money on door knobs.  The risk gets higher if you go where there is people traffic. (ie:  think about shopping for tomatoes at a fruit stand...how many get touched over and over ) On remedy measures: I read this on a list of measures from an Internal Medicine doc: James Robb, MD FCAP

"Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY "cold-like" symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

*There are also studies which show that “hyper loading” on vitamin-c can be very effective for common flu and they are testing this for COVID-19. For adults this generally means 500mg every hour until flu symptoms are gone. Past medical studies have been done where patients receive up to 1000mg per hour for 24 hours. Excessive vitamin-c overload will cause diarrhea. So if that happens, slightly reduce the dosage per hour. Do not repeat this cycle for an additional 24 hours. Reduce to normal dosage for at least 24-48 hours before performing a hyper-loading cycle again. Stay hydrated!

I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it.

Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available for now which is why it is crucial to properly prepare.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email."

New cases reported Saturday, March 7 in China: 99.

Reminiscent of the 2009 Swine Flu (H1N1) panic. Big gains for Merck, Novartis, Pfizer, et al.

This morning, US stocks open with a huge drop (1500 points on the Dow, 5.5%). Practically only gainer is Wal-Mart. Strongest stocks (i.e. least weak): Pfizer, Merck, Lilly.

Coronavirus information from a Chinese-American lady.


Someone sent this to me.  I have not verified it, but it seems reasonable and worth passing along.  Any reasonable advice should be welcomed these days!


This information comes from Sheila Gee’s contacts in China.  Sheila is a full-blooded Chinese American, who worked for years in the Los Angeles school system.  She is a remarkable common-sense and caring lady.  I do not discount the following advice she passes on here:

“My uncle graduated with a master's degree and works in Shenzhen Hospital.  He is being transferred to study Wuhan pneumonia virus.  He just called me and told me to tell my friends: If you have a runny nose and sputum when you have a cold, you cannot have the new type of coronavirus pneumonia because coronavirus pneumonia has a dry cough without runny nose. This is the simplest way to identify.  Please tell your friends that if you know more about medical knowledge, you will have more awareness of identification and prevention.

This time, the Wuhan virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed at a temperature of 26-27 degrees. Therefore, drink more hot water. You can tell your friends and relatives to drink more hot water to prevent it. Go under the Sun. It has been cold recently, and drinking hot water is also very comfortable. It is not a cure and is good for the body. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink ice, remember!”

His doctor's advice about coronavirus:

1. “It is pretty large in size (cell is about 400-500nm diameter), so any normal mask (not just the  N95 feature) should be able to filter it out. However, when someone who's infected sneezes in front of you, it will take a great 3 meters (about 10 feet) before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

2. When the virus drops on metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours. So remember if you come in contact with any metal surface, wash your hands with soap thoroughly.

3. The virus can remain active on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent should kill the virus. For winter clothing that does not require daily washing, you can put it out under the sun to kill the virus.

About the symptoms of the pneumonia caused by Coronavirus:

1. It will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling which will last for 3 to 4 days

2. Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This process will take 5 to 6 days.

3. With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You will feel like you are drowning in water. It's important to go seek immediate medical attention if you feel like this.

About prevention:

1. The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public, so you must wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 mins, but a lot can happen in those 5-10 mins (you can rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly).

2. Aside from washing your hands frequently, you can gargle with Betadine Sore Throat Gargle to eliminate or minimize the germs while they are still in your throat (before dripping down to your lungs).

Folks, take extra care and drink plenty of water.”

The US government has a website with extensive information about all aspects of the coronavirus problem.  It contains updated statistical information and guidelines for individuals, law enforcement, health care institutions and others.  You can find it at coronavirus.gov.

Reliable information concerning COVID-19 has been available from Epidemiologists at the WHO for weeks now while the US has been filtering reports and updates from Health officials  through the Administration, who have been offering alternative facts, statistics, and conspiracy theories. 




What conspiracy theories has the US been offering? 


I've read about the conspiracy theory that the CIA planted the Coronavirus in China but that certainly wasn't the US's doing.  Conversely, many throughout the world have speculated that China hasn't been forthcoming with the Coronavirus.

Conspiracy theories? 

 It is a known disease that is highly contagious with deaths among the most vulnerable...the elderly ( fairly large population of them here) .    Important we just do what we are told to do.  Wash hands, stay home if sick and avoid crowds at public places if you are a high risk individual.  Keith, My person sense here is it's not the best time to pit Americans, retired here, against their own government. That's just my own opinion.  What's the point?  Maybe I'm missing something.

Gentle reminder.

The COVID-19 epidemic is a serious matter, and each person gets to decide what and how they deal with this health issue. Two recognized authorities regarding health issues are the WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), and there are others.

Please be careful not to post about non-Panama politics on CL.

Moderator comment: This news article was posted, but with trepidation. The article is about an action by a US government agency against an American, which disqualifies it for posting on CL. However, this article is from a Panamanian news source intended for the benefit of Panamanians. Further, there is reference to the FDA position about silver based "treatments" (see the highlighted text in the below article) also lacking efficacy, etc. CL is not taking a position about silver based treatments, nor is CL disagreeing with or disparaging the original content originally posted by @Bob. This is just another data point for CL readers to consider.


FDA warns  promoters of fake coronavirus treatments


Alex Jones, modern day snake oil promoter

Posted 10/04/2020

NEWSER–   Conspiracy theorist Alex  Jones has received a letter from the FDA and FTC  about fake coronavirus treatments. warning  him  to stop promoting and selling silver-infused products including toothpaste and mouthwash that "are intended to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19." Those products are actually "unapproved," "unauthorized," "misbranded," and being "misleadingly represent[ed] ... as safe and effective," says the letter.

Televangelist Jim Bakker got a similar letter for his own silver products.

Should Jones fail to comply, he could face legal action, have his products seized, and might be ordered to reimburse anyone who purchased them. There are currently no products proven to prevent or treat the virus. As Politico reports, the Android app for Jones' show, Infowars, was recently banned by Google for spreading coronavirus misinformation. Apple had already banned the app back in 2018, Wired reports. (Jones has also been pushing a conspiracy theory about the virus.)
