Schools are closed, sporting events are cancelled, and Wall Street trading has been halted.
No matter where you turn, you’re watching the world change thanks to the rising threat of the coronavirus, aka COVID-19.
The number of deaths worldwide has now surpassed 6,500.
And the focus remains on prevention – stopping this insidious virus’ march.
The CDC emphasizes COVID-19 is mainly spread by patients showing symptoms.
However, numerous studies have found that people WITHOUT symptoms are a greater risk…
Asymptomatic transmission CAN happen
For the last few weeks, officials have acknowledged that transmission of the coronavirus can be spread through asymptomatic patients.
While it remains unclear the percentage of those without symptoms – or with mild symptoms – we now know asymptomatic transmission IS more responsible for the spread than previously thought.
In fact, a Massachusetts coronavirus cluster with at least 82 cases was STARTED BY patients showing no symptoms!
And more than a dozen studies have shown that asymptomatic patients are causing substantial amounts of infection.
That’s why it’s ESSENTIAL that you take personal responsibility to prevent the spread…
You don’t have to wait around for mainstream to come up with some vaccine or cure; instead, one of the BEST things you can do is turn to natural remedies that can build up your immune system starting right away.
For example, garlic supplements are PROVEN by study after study to boost your immune defense against colds.
In a 12-week study published in the journal Advances in Therapy, researchers found that a daily garlic supplement can reduce the number of colds by an impressive 63 percent.
And another natural remedy to try is vitamin C.
While it does not guarantee a 100 percent protection against coronavirus, it can help boost your immune defense.
You can take a daily vitamin (I recommend 1,000mg per day) or you can add vitamin C-rich foods to your diet, such as:
- Chili peppers
- Sweet yellow peppers
- Mustard spinach
- And much more!
Avoiding coronavirus also includes maintaining proper hygiene.
So—as I’m sure you’ve heard a hundred times by now—don’t forget to wash your hands! It’s so effective, it’s worth repeating.
Use plenty of soap and hot water, and don’t forget to wash for at least 20 seconds. A recent study shows increased hand hygiene at airports could reduce your risk of virus by 37 percent.
