Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is also known as Wuhan pneumonia or Wuhan coronavirus. It belongs to the same class of viruses as SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). While SARS is more dangerous in terms of mortality Wuhan coronavirus seems to be more contagious. SARS had about average 11% mortality rate. Currently, there are 2.4% of fatal cases attributed to the Wuhan coronavirus. The mortality rate from all causes pneumonia is between 5% and 10%
I am wondering if panic promoted by Media is justified?
The best way to prevent atypical pneumonia caused by the Wuhan coronavirus or to make it mild and self-limiting would be a healthy diet and the following supplements.
- Vitamin C (as Sodium Ascorbate) – 4 g per day. It should be increased to the tolerance level if you get the actual infection - Astragalus extract - Zinc - Baical skullcap - Lomatium
