    "there are several studies that indicate taking certain readily available inexpensive drugs in combination with each other... significantly increases the likelihood of a positive outcome for your case"

    What are these drugs ? I never read an article or study about this advice. I have seen websites where they are touting for certain nutritional supplements that would make it easier to survive a possible infection. Also Vitamin D seems to play an important role. But all this does not come from official sources and is probably not approved by science.

    Unscrupulous people are going to make a killing out of this. Throw any old rubbish in a bottle, put on a label saying how your granny uses it and has not had Covid and every idiot will buy it.

    For illustration:

    This is the VIP our lawyer guy from Bacong traveled with on that private plane.
    Also an APOR, from Quezon. He was reported positive on Oct. 10

    And Lo and Behold, that same APOR has miraculously already been reported as recovered a full 6 days later (and miraculously aged 4 years in those 6 days :hilarious:).
    Even faster than the Donald.

    I really do not know about all these supposed medical assists to help prevent infection other than they seem to be a reinforcement of a healthy a lifestyle but I do understand that two simple actions are very effective, wearing a properly fitted mask and avoiding contact, ie be clean and maintain a separation distance from strangers. Do those two very simple things and you will more than likely not be infected. This will buy you the time to see out the immediate risk until a properly tested vaccine is available. Herd immunity? Yes of you are prepared to see 75% or so of the worlds population infected with the resulting death rate. At the present time, this figure is only 5%. We have a long way to go before we reach that figure. Those are your and my options. I know which one I prefer.

    That is a correlation, not a causation. People who have low vitamin D levels are generally older and more frail people who aren't able to be active outside. These people will almost always have worse health outcomes than active people. Supplementing vitamin D in this demographic does not help with their recovery from COVID-19.

    True. I remember reading something long ago about age affecting Vitamin D absorption.

    Yep! Every since Covid arose, I have been wearing an orange woolen cap. I have not had Covid-19. Cannot say if any other colour or fabric will work - just my experience.

    I started shaving my head once per week since the pandemic and have not had COVID. I'm pretty sure this has increases my body's ability to synthesize vitamin D, making me immune to this virus. The smooth surface is also much more difficult for viruses to stick to. I think the CDC and WHO should spend precious COVID research money to see if bald men have better health outcomes.
