As communities across our nation, and nations across our world shut down everything from businesses, to churches, to schools, what is the real issue related to Covid19? Dr. Kelly Victory, a Medical Doctor who has a specialty in Medical Trauma and Emergency Response, and for the past 20 years, a consultant with Fortune 500 companies, shares a unique and medically informed perspective to Covid19.
What do we know about Covid19 and how should you be responding? Watch her short presentation and be better informed about Covid19. It may surprise you:
13 Key facts on Covid19 and prevention from Dr. Kelly Victory:
- This pandemic has literally no effect on 85% of the population! Of the 15% who do get sick, very few have any symptoms for longer than a few days.
- Of those who are hospitalized, the overwhelming majority of those get better.
- Those negatively impacted are almost exclusively people over 70 with severe, preexisting conditions.
- If you are a healthy person, your chance of dying from Covid19 is almost non-existent.
- Covid19 can’t survive in temperatures over 70 degrees.
- Children are at virtually no risk of contracting Covid19.
- “Social distancing” is not a health concept and has no support scientifically.
- Quarantine is only for the sick, not the healthy.
- No scientific evidence for wearing masks. The CDC and WHO have found no evidence to support healthy persons wearing masks. Habitual wearing of masks has been found to be unhealthy! It actually weakens your immune system!
- The human body has an advanced and highly developed immune system. Every day we come in contact with harmful viruses and diseases. Antibodies fight for us. The more we are exposed, the stronger our antibodies can develop.
- “Herd immunity” is the best approach for Covid19.
- If we are waiting for a vaccine to get back to normal, this just isn’t realistic. Many viruses have no vaccine and will never have one.
- We must trust our own immune system and common sense. Take extra doses of Vitamin C and D, expose yourself to the sun regularly, eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep. This is all that is necessary in almost every case. We don’t need a “new normal.” The “old normal” is just fine!
Hope this helps!
