Why does the flu/influenza come and go? Where does it go when it doesn’t come? Hmm…Points to ponder.
Viral diseases erupt as vitamin D blood levels decline. Could it be due to less sunshine exposure? It makes sense as far fewer people have colds/flu during the summer.
It would be interesting to compare the coronavirus infection ratio of the United States to that of say the Caribbean Islands, Central America, or Africa for more insight.
Quarantines May Backfire
The coronavirus epidemic may worsen with quarantine. That is what happened on a cruise ship off the coast of Japan and in Italy. Coercing people to stay indoors further lowers vitamin D levels.
After close to a month of quarantine on the Diamond Princess, the number of confirmed cases out of 3711 people quarantined on the boat who became infected rose from 174 to 712. Perhaps the increase is due to deprivation of sunlight. Or perhaps it is the poor or recirculated air in a small confine of a cabin room or apartment.
Regardless, The CAT was out of the BAG on this virus a long time ago (it was first reported in 2019) so I suspect the virus has been in the U.S. for some time and we did not know it. Any early cases were probably attributed to the flu. A headline from USA Today from January 27, 2020 said: “Rush is on to develop vaccine for coronavirus.” (the online version was dated Jan. 24).
Pray for an Early Spring
It is pure speculation at this time, but since the “common cold” versions of coronaviruses are seasonal, COVID-19 may act similarly. It is worth considering. Seasonal coronaviruses favor cool, dry climates. Therefore, looking forward to April and May, with the onset of Spring and more intense sun rays, the epidemic may vanish.
The President of the United States said on February 27 that: “It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear.”
Whether it is by Vitamin D or something else, this too will end.
In the meantime, there is vitamin D in a bottle. Click this link to see how a little bit of vitamin D can quell viruses.
