As COVID19 spreads across the United States, the government incorporates drastic measures to limit infections.

COVID19 has been in the news every day since the outbreak in Wuhan, China. This article addresses some of the issues presented for the reasons to keep countries ‘closed’ for business.

Note to reader: This author has contracted the term COVID-19 to COVID19 for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) recognition.


One-by-one state governors in the United States have issued requests for restraint in public gatherings. They have also declared that all persons who are not working in essential positions stay home. Many people are working remotely from their abodes so that form of employment is staying viable.

People are allowed to get groceries, fuel, as well as, travel to get other essential items. Gatherings of more than 10 people are discouraged. Also, everyone is requested to maintain a personal distance of at least 6 feet. Social distancing is recommended at all times.

President Donald Trump has been giving open press conferences almost every day. He has with him a number of medical professionals who are experts in their fields. They give COVID19 updates that include case and fatality updates. Notwithstanding, leaders in other countries are doing the same for their citizens.


As mentioned so much in the news, it is always good for repetition. If this helps just one person it is worth it.

  • Wash hands frequently (especially after touching hand rails, door handles and the like), use hand-sanitizer
  • Do not touch face, eyes, or nose with bare hands (especially if not washed after touching rails, etc.)
  • Use the N95 mask when in closer environments or if infected with any illness
  • Maintain self-distancing of at least 6 feet while in public getting groceries, fuel, or prescriptions
  • Unless one is in an essential vocation (i.e. grocery), shelter in-place (stay home)
  • Stay hydrated and take vitamins (especially antioxidants like A, B, C) and those that boost the immune system
  • Get plenty of rest

Even though the fatality rates for the Coronavirus is around 1% or so in the US and it is about the same for standard flu infections; it is important to follow these measures and keep immune systems up.


Here is the ‘sticky wicket’ to consider. As mentioned in the previous articles, from March 17th and March 20th,  something unusual has happened. For the past 3 weeks, this author has researched while placing other projects aside for now. What was stated before still stands. It is not so important how or why it started; the fact is, it is here.

Yes, there are accusations emanating from countries like China, as well as, other nations regarding the advent and outbreak of the COVID19 virus. It ranges from from the virus starting in other countries or even the US. Further, scientists have claimed the bat Coronavirus has been bio-engineered with small parts of the HIV-1 virus. Nothing natural could have spread so fast, so it does seem this is a bio-engineered virus. Or, that many people move that fast, now?

There are even discrepancies in how the virus reacts with climate changes. This writer has global contacts and in some of our mutual communications, we had to chuckle when one hemisphere says the virus will abate in cooler weather, the other states it will abate in warmer weather. So, let us not stir up the mess; let’s band together to get rid of and/or combat the virus and save lives.


One of the individuals who gives daily press briefings in the US provides detailed information. She is Dr. Deborah Birx who is the White House Coronavirus Coordinator. Successful testing is underway. She noted that the testing for antibodies used on AIDS patients has been successful in testing for COVID19. Interesting. Am leaving this up to the reader to assess.

The good news about testing is that the US has ramped up and tested more individuals in 8 days than South Korea has completed in 8 weeks. Depending on location and origination of outbreaks beginning in Washington state, as well as, New York the infection rates vary. The bad news is many of the population of New York (especially NYC) have moved away. There is no way to track individuals traveling to other locations, including Florida.

Pardon the above header with a pun? It was intentional. Here is more a personal note of recent experiences. The bad news is the negative side of life with people taking advantage of our God-given freedoms to buy so much for themselves (sometimes to resell on media) that others have no chance to get the items they need.

og: COVID-19
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, panic buying has occurred in many locations. Efforts to contain hoarding is underway. Stores have created rationing limits so there is more availability.

That is right. Toilet paper. C’mon man! In so many conversations of late, some seniors recounted that in World War II the only toilet paper many people had was newspapers that had been read! Think about it? How far we have all come in this marvelous, technological age with electronics, transportation, and games to not be able to get toilet paper? Wow. It’s not even a conundrum; it is a sadness.

Some more good news is this: Overall, the humanitarianism and kindness of those recognizing the value of the human condition has waxed eloquently! In trying to obtain needed supplies I saw more people thinking of others instead of just thinking of themselves. I am elated in the most trying of times.


The Coronavirus is a RNA construct. So, whether it is transfer or messenger RNA, it will mutate. Because the virus, as it travels around the globe with human-to-human contact, developing an effective vaccine is problematic. This doesn’t mean it is impossible. As with past pandemics, a solution is in the making.

Unlike other existing viruses, this one is quite predictable. The viral coating, known as the meylin sheath is the housing for RNA, as well as, those with DNA strands. Being able to compromise this shell will destroy the virus.

There are ‘compassion’ drugs available to combat COVID19. But, do not self-medicate. Always contact your primary physician for treatment. A number of experimental drugs are being utilized. Some new ones are being developed and should be made available in the first week of April. Don’t worry, help is on the way.


One of the older and effective giants for fighting viral infections is the anti-biotic, Erythromycin or the Z-pack. It has been helpful in staving off the negative effects of the present coronavirus threatening our health.

There is an older medicine used to fight malaria infections. Two of these have a positive effect in fighting COVID19, as well. They are hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. There have been reports of individuals trying to use drugs themselves with disastrous results. Please, do not self-medicate. Consult your physician.

Thus far, however, the success rate of utilizing ‘compassion’ drugs to fight this coronavirus is only 1 in 5. Remdesivir, a failed antiviral drug to fight Ebola, has been used to combat other corona-viruses. Experimentation is underway to see how it could be made effective in fighting COVID19.


This author has interviewed quite a number of people regarding the Coronavirus situation. In sum, how the leaders of countries affected with the outbreak; they should be applauded. Especially the leadership of the United States and Great Britain. President Donald J. Trump is a businessman turned politician. On purpose. For no money. His heartbeat is on the heartbeat of this nation.

Mr. Trump wants the people to succeed. He also knows for the people to succeed, businesses must be able to conduct a profitable scenario to engender employment for all. No, there are many things that are not right about how the economy works. But, he knows it cannot be done overnight. And, he is open to valid ideas to make all our lives better.

We must get above petty differences. Drop the egos for a minute; stop and think, please. All of the leaders should heed this. This writer has encountered about as many conspiracies that anyone could believe in the last few weeks. Being honest and objective does come at a cost. It is to be responsible and not let small-mindedness take over.


It is not so much that we should hunker down and blame others for what should be one’s reality. Just accept the fact that reality is here and we must learn from history. That is right; there have been atrocities of all kinds occurring in human history. Again, we are not alone and we have not been, ever.

If we don’t start living the part as responsible citizens with love and caring in abundance, we are going to go down the same rabbit hole, over and over again.

So, is that a cool thing to accept? Let’s be the mature, loving kind of people we are supposed to be. We have had some wonderful teachers, as well as, some really bad actors. Where do you want to be in time?

There is a lot of love out there. It is time to recognize it, revel in it, and embrace it. Please?

Coronavirus cellular structure. Man-made or natural? Investigation underway.

Common sense should be the foremost investigative tool to be pulled from the grab bag of every day life. However, these days the tools of speculation and fear-mongering seem to be utilized, first.

This author has struggled with world events of late. And, it has been difficult to comprehend the who, what, where, when, how, and why these situations are transpiring.

Then, the truth came overnight. How could a non-invasive, as well a, non-evasive article be written in a fashion to preclude blame, inference, and implication for the public to grasp?

False flags are mentioned about what has transpired regarding the advent of the Coronavirus, heretofore as stated, COVID-19. And, there will also be included the false flag possibility of an alien invasion at article’s end. Not only have there been movies of virus strains gone amok; there have been the same portrayed of covert, as well as, overt invasions from outer space. Yes, UFOs and aliens in them who want to take over earth are part of this at article’s end.

So, let us first deal with the present Coronavirus contamination of the world population.

Coronavirus cellular structure. Man-made or natural? Investigation is underway.


The advent of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in late 2019 began in Wuhan, China. Most all cases of infections were in mainland China. In early 2020, COVID-19 (2019-nCoV) had spread to other countries. Medical scientists have predicted the virus will ultimately spread, globally. But, how come the cases that skyrocketed in December have now plummeted to almost nothing by February of this year in Wuhan?

This author has scoured scads of articles that proclaim the virus is man-made. Other articles claim the virus started from human consumption of everything from bats to dogs and cats. Egad!

Evidence from history abounds that bio-warfare research has been conducted for many years. Yes, scientists have been splicing, mixing, and fixing DNA strands of viruses for years.

So, what makes this outbreak different? How can we determine how it started? Was it man-made or not?


It is no mystery that the political situation in the United States is volatile. Unfortunately, the common respect know in past political interactions in Congress, as well as, in media is at an incredible cross-roads. The animosity and vitriol carries on in the two main parties: Democrats and Republicans.

It seemed that there could never be an impasse or any form of resolution to the bickering and an all-out verbal war of words. Then: Enter the Coronavirus…

When COVID-19 emerged in the capital city of Wuhan of the Hubei Province of China, very little was deliberated from the Chinese government. As a fairly closed nation regarding news events, it was not a surprise. Then came the conspiracies. What happened? Was this from people eating bats or was this a man-made strain?


The old cliche about war is that the first casualty of same is the truth. It could be true in this case, as well. But, who knows, really? And, moreover, how important is knowing whether or not it is man-made? At this stage of the game, to this author, logic dictates that COVID-19 exists. Period. Occurring naturally or not is a matter of common sense. We, as a society must deal with it now, not later. Further, we must remain reasonable and objective in containing, controlling, and eradicating the disease, if possible.

So, after hours of sifting through numerous articles, as well as, some scientific journals a number of remarkable items were discovered. In this particular article, I found reference to the alleged coronavirus from bats that caused the outbreak in Wuhan, China. Some have hinted at modifications to DNA.


First of all, common sense makes corona sense. As of now, social distancing is underway. The best way to protect oneself is to not be in the proximity of a possibly infected person. Next, if one is suspected of being infected, personal quarantine is the best solution. The period of time to remain quarantined is two weeks.

Recently, we have observed some of the worst, as well as, best case scenarios to combat the spread of COVID-19. The worst case scenario was the influx of people in China to observe the Chinese New Year. Afterwards, people traveled globally, unabated. One of the popular locations to travel was Italy. There were no warnings about the virus being spread until it was pretty much too late. The number of Coronavirus cases there increased dramatically with little protection to an unaware population.

So, the world population has watched pretty much in terror the worst cases and the aftermaths thereof have been transpiring.


The best case scenario of handling the COVID-19 outbreak is occurring in South Korea. A number of well-protected medical personnel have been conducting temperature and related virus testing at constructed bottlenecks of traffic where the vehicle occupants are continually tested, individually. But, this is not perfect. Therefore, social distancing and self-isolation have also been set in place to protect its population. It’s working, so far.

Notwithstanding, those who travel by air are being tested before being allowed to continue on their journeys.


This author has been following the latest events to bring the reader the best of information available. As mentioned, it is not so much about where and how the contagion has spread worldwide; it is what to do to slow it down or even stop it.

President Donald Trump implemented some drastic changes in travel within the first two days of the first case of COVID-19 in the United States. It began with travel restrictions to and from China. Then, it branched out from there. Travel restrictions to and from Europe, as well as, many other countries were set in place.

Almost immediately, Trump has conducted numerous television press conferences from a collection of various, well-known medical experts. But, he also included CEO’s from supply chain, commercial, pharmacy, and grocery firms. Each one has offered streamlined methods to provide materials and supplies to the public.


As the press conferences continue, many forms of self-protection from contracting the Coronavirus have been discussed. Some of these forms of protection are how many people may gather in a closed environment. Others are postponing and/or cancelling scheduled events where more than 10-25 persons congregate. These measures seem drastic. They are. However, the absence, as well as, limiting of human contact are the best defence until a vaccine is created.

Where people are wise in limiting social activity for the next few weeks, the success of limiting virus contraction is maximized. The next segment proves exactly how and why this makes sense, for now.


In just the last few days, this author has been in contact with friends and family from other countries. Some of these countries include, Italy, Australia, Philippines, England, Germany, Spain, Mexico, and the United States.

The bottom line of how to succeed against COVID-19 is to not overload the existing healthcare system. This includes not only medications, but ventilators, as well. This virus does attack the lungs, yet the mortality rate is about the same as the various strains of viruses that kill humans, globally, every year.

But, this doesn’t mean this virus is any less selective on who it attacks? It seems that the elderly are in the largest danger group. However, cases are occurring in other groups, too. The very young seem to be more protected with intact immune systems, but those who have pre-existing conditions in middle-aged to older groups are most affected.


The recent press conferences held have presented some truly common sense reasons for the present actions to limit public assembly. To this author, this is completely logical. Here are the two scenarios presented from Science Alert:

og: common
What is so important to note is addressing how and when the number of Coronavirus infections occur. By keeping the case load from exceeding the health care system’s ability to cope; the population is best protected.

Although, there is an active flow-chart in the supplied link above, let’s take a look at how to flatten the curve of cases versus healthcare failure.

og: corona
In this diagram, we can see that social distancing, self-isolation, and proper testing can most protect the population.

The graph above indicates the success of protecting the population from not over-taxing the healthcare system. This is truly the bottom line of virus protection. Protect the existing health care systems from not being overloaded.


Firstly, as mentioned earlier the original outbreak of the Coronavirus, cases have been dwindling since February. In China, they are almost non-existent, now. Further, evidence suggests that as the temperatures in the global climate increase, the virus cannot long survive.

So, in most countries where infections have occurred, they will also soon abate. Where extra protection from spreading the virus has been taken, recovery from same will occur at a more rapid rate.

Thus, while wild conspiracies continue, common sense will ultimately triumph, as usual.


There are some simple methods to help protect and support one’s immune system. Frankly, it is common sense for people to do daily; however, many do not.

First, hydrate regularly. It is known that keeping the sinuses warm, as well as, drinking some water regularly. Viruses get washed down into the stomach where they are killed by the acids there.

Second, take a vitamin regimen with food. Some of the most important ones are an age-specific multi-vitamin; Co Q-10; B-complex; vitamin D; Antioxidants A, C, E; Zinc, Potassium, Magnesium, Glucosamine-Chondroitin; Turmeric, and Fish Oil. There are others depending on needs to take, but, these are important as regular supplements.

Third, get plenty of rest. This is not a recommendation nor prescribed; it is just something one may want to do to keep the immune system operating more efficiently. It is up to each individual to make their decisions for good health in general.


As promised from the article’s beginning, we will now deal with false flags. First, here is the definition:

false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

Over the years, false flags occurred. And, they still do. From the time of pirate ships on the open sea producing a national flag instead of their ‘skull and cross-bones’ flag to fool their prey, more sophisticated methods are employed today.

Recently, China has accused the United States military of causing this economic and medial turmoil. Conversely, after viewing who owns what bio-medical facilities in Wuhan, i.e. George Soros, as well as, possible implications of an accidental (or intentional) lead of a modified virus, the accusations continue today. We leave it to the reader to determine when so inclined.


This writer has experienced demonstrative events over time. Some have not been possible when observed in the years they happened. This has been documented in other writings. However, to be on topic and on subject for interested parties in social media and other venues, there have been many false flags regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial encounters.

There have been many articles, books, television series, and movies documenting the advent of ‘alien invasions’ and the like over the years. Some of these have been incredibly entertaining. Some have been rather unnerving.

So, this author would like to leave this one for the reader to ponder and finally determine for themselves?

With what you all have endured and experienced above in real time in our real world; how would you react when/if the government suddenly announced we are not alone, but the actors are about to invade us and they are not from here?

Hint: Evidence abounds in history. Further, how would you take it. And, since many of us know we have never been alone for so long, why would this even arise. Or, possibly, could it be another false flag?


Forewarned is forearmed, in this writer’s humble opinion? Further, ‘This, too, shall pass.’

Think about it in a sober fashion. Then, read a little history of the world. It is going to be fine, despite ourselves.

Long live the human condition. After all, we are all we have?

There is something quite unique about this planet in which we live. It heals itself and all those of whom reside here.
