For the last 40 years, I have observed and had come to the conclusion that all viral infections rapidly lead to secondary bacterial infections. Indeed many of my patients will be aware of my thoughts on this subject over very many years. This position has not changed; with the arrival of the Coronavirus, I have been letting many of my patients know that they must insist on an antibiotic if they fall ill. This should be done on Day One when it is established firmly that serious illness has really started.

During this present pandemic, I am very concerned that many deaths are perhaps preventable if one was to use the experience gained from previous epidemics rather than following some modern medical 'who shot John' philosophy of single pathogen causality about which I have been overly informed ad nauseam over the years.

The failings of appropriate antibiotic treatment of cases of Covid-19 patients is more than likely allowing the bacteria to fulminate causing the rapid demise of the patients. Bacterial pneumonia can cause death within 24 hours if intravenous antibiotics are not deployed. I have seen it happen.

I noticed one evening on TV, a few weeks ago, that the German Chancellor Angela Merkel was being given a pneumococcal vaccine. The news was on TV because the doctor administering the vaccine was later reported to be Covid-19 positive. This is perhaps a very wise move on the part of the German authorities to prevent complications caused by bacterial pneumonia - not viral as it is extensively purported.

The single pathogen mantra that many in medicine follow is deeply flawed. Also, starting the antibiotics or antivirals late in the day is unhelpful. Patients entering the hospital should be immediately put on IV antibiotics without any pondering. There is ample evidence for this.
The bacterial secondary infection takes hold within hours; here again administering antibiotics when the illness is at the late stages may not be very successful. Therefore appropriate treatment would be the use of saltwater as described later here and antivirals and antibiotics at an early stage.

I decided to do some research to support my thoughts and within seconds came across this article written in 2012:

Secondary Bacterial Infections Common with Viruses

  • Researchers discuss secondary pneumococcus after influenza and other lethal viral–bacterial interactions.
    Some key points from this article are:
    “The concept of coinfection was lost for several decades due to the breakdown into a one-pathogen, one-host model”;
    "Similarities between the 1918 and the 2009 influenza H1N1 pandemics that brought [BACTERIAL] coinfections back to the front of the discussion" is noted;
    "Data indicated that as many as 50% of severe or fatal H1N1 infections were complicated by a secondary bacterial infection;
    "An overwhelming number of deaths occurred in children who had secondary bacterial infections;”
  • "Pathological specimens from the 1918 influenza pandemic show that over 90% of the people who died in that pandemic died from secondary bacterial infections.”

Please

The concept of 'one-pathogen, one-host' model is plain lunacy. The medical advice is reminiscent of our hospitals where the outcomes of almost every department (except surgery) are zilch. By this, I mean that patients keep getting prescribed drugs which never cure them of their ailments such as, Asthma, Back pain, IBS, Rheumatoid arthritis, Migraines, MS, Fibromyalgia and on and on. The deterioration continues giving rise to millions who are chronically sick for the rest of their lives who develop additional symptoms because of the countless and useless drugs they get prescribed. Many articles on this website are a testament to this dastardly state of affairs.

If such personnel are now in charge of dictating policy for Corvid-19 patients, God help us all. They are very busy trying a number of different drug strategies on thousands of patients sending some to certain death instead of the tried and tested method of using an antibiotic at the outset!

Even ancient people living in the heart of the Amazon rain forest who could be wiped out by the Coronavirus were wise enough to use an antibiotic along with their herbal medication to get a 100% cure rate when all the inhabitants contracted the virus in one village according to a BBC report on the 5th of June 2020.

There is a report in the Daily Mail  about a new antibiotic:

New antibiotic developed to fight 'superbug' lung infections could be used to treat ventilator-associated pneumonia in COVID-19 patients

Pneumonia is a serious secondary infection that can arise alongside COVID-19. It also offers the hope of potentially slashing deaths rates from the coronavirus by stopping secondary infections from colonising a patient's airways. This is a particular problem for critically ill patients on ventilators – who are especially prone to developing pneumonia.

The compound is administered via the windpipe to target lung infections – and performs better than current last-resort antibiotics, without side effects."

Please read more in the Daily Mail

Please also listen to this video about the limited benefit of a new anti-viral as the drug companies strive to push their drugs with little benefit but enormous profits to cash in during the emergency:


Patients who are on high blood pressure medication please note:

"Blood pressure medication is one factor that's making the COVID-19 virus lethal. The drugs increase the chances of viral pneumonia and fatal respiratory failure. People who are taking an ACE inhibitor or an ARB drug for heart problems should stay at home and not meet up with people, say researchers from Louisiana State University. Dr Malcolm Kendrick, a UK GP, estimates that people taking one of the drugs are four times more likely to die from the virus.
“The drugs also increase the chances of catching the virus in the first place. ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors in particular increase the receptors around the lungs that the coronavirus also binds to.
“Many taking the medication are elderly and are being treated for cardiovascular diseases including heart attack, high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes or chronic kidney disease. The ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers) are also prescribed to reduce blood pressure levels. Please read more on this link."

We do know that:

  • The virus can spread up to 27 feet following a sneeze and persist at 6 feet for up to 2 minutes during a sneeze or a cough.
  • The virus is much more infectious than the flu virus.
  • People can spread it several days before developing symptoms.
  • The virus can potentially be spread through aerosols that linger in the air for hours.
  • Simply talking to other people closely for a period of time can potentially transmit infection hence the need for maintaining distance.
  • The virus can linger on surfaces for up to several days especially plastic and metallic surfaces.
  • Well-fitting masks, eye protection, and strict hand hygiene is our best defence against infection transmission.

We do not yet know:

  • Exactly HOW lethal this virus is, and will not know until a large cross-section of the population has been tested. (Please note these tests are not the panacea as claimed. They are only 70% effective!)
  • It is not known whether these detectable virus particles from surfaces can actually cause infection so we must act as if they can.
  • Whether any one of us have been exposed or not.
  • Who can potentially infect us, so all people must be assumed to be a potential source!
  • We also now know from autopsy results that patients are dying with clots in their legs and lungs. This calls for taking at least one aspirin a day the moment you think you have the infection.

It has been reported that very many patients have only mild symptoms. Therefore in spite of the evil-doers, there may be some hope of combating these assaults. We are also told that at some stage almost everyone has to get infected. So the strategy must be to build our own immune system so that we are minimally impacted should we have the misfortune to fall victim.

During these hard times, it is important to find very inexpensive ways to protect yourself. My strategy is that almost everyone with very little expense can look after themselves.

The first line of our body that confronts a viral assault is our innate immune system which is inherited.

The antimicrobial function of innate immunity is mediated, in part, by small cationic peptides with potent antimicrobial activity against bacteria, fungi, parasites, and some viruses. Human antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) such as defensins and cathelicidin (LL-37) are present in leukocytes and are also secreted by various epithelia in the skin and mucosal surfaces including the ocular surface. In addition to their antimicrobial role, AMPs also serve as important effector molecules in inflammation, immune activation, and wound healing.

Having a strong well-functioning immune system is the key. Our gut is intimately involved in the maintenance of our immune systems. Gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is a prominent part of mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) and represents almost 70% of the entire immune system. About 80% of plasma cells [mainly immunoglobulin A (IgA)-bearing cells] reside in GALT.

For the immune system to build and maintain itself we need a very well-functioning gut.

There are numerous reasons for the gut function to be compromised:

1)     Improper functioning of the gut because of a poor breathing capacity due to jaw issues. This usually involves the correction of the issues involved or minimally wearing a specially constructed dental appliance to aid breathing ability;

2)     Improper breathing technique. This can be improved by practising belly breathing;

3)     The consumption of processed foods and drinks. All these harm our digestive and immune systems and one needs to abstain from any processed foods including sausages, cold processed meats and other processed foods.;

4)     One has to completely abstain from various energy drinks which contain artificial sugars as these harm the immune system.

Dietary requirements to improve the gut immune function.

Nourishing our gut to promote an effective immune system we need to consume the following:

1)     Consume live yoghurt or Kaffir on a daily basis.

2)     Consume garlic. The health benefits of garlic are brought about by sulphur compounds formed when a garlic clove is chopped. These compounds include diallyl disulfide and s-allyl cysteine plus allicin which forms soon after the clove is cut. Garlic has been shown to reduce flu-type symptoms and the duration of the infection by 60 to 70%. Whether this is a direct effect on the virus or a contribution to a better immune system is unimportant. The main outcome is a better ability to fight viral infections naturally.
Garlic supplements also benefit in other ways mainly a reduction in high blood pressure, an improvement in our Cholesterol levels prolonging life and increases in antioxidative enzymes reducing damage to the body. Garlic also provides protection from heavy metal toxicity and from Aluminium chemtrail poisoning from the skies on a daily basis.
Cut one clove of garlic into small slices left open in the air for a minute or two and then swallowed with water or milk each evening. Start with a quarter clove and build to one clove. After a month you may feel your body is saturated and then you can reduce or stop the intake for a week or two before resuming. Garlic is antiviral and anti-microbial. The uncooked form is much better. This garlic can be consumed with yoghurt or Kaffir mentioned earlier, which is an additional requirement for a healthy functioning gut.

3)     Ginger: Patients can consume a maximum of 3–4 grams of ginger extract per day but a pregnant woman should take only 1 gram and should be avoided in children under the age of 2. If you have any heart problems or you are on any medication for high blood pressure please do not use this supplement as it may raise your blood pressure in some patients.
To help the gut function better grate a tablespoon full of fresh Ginger, boil this in six cups of water until it reduces to about three cups and drink one cup daily. It aids digestion. You may add some honey to improve the taste. Ginger supports the immune system, it thins the blood improving the circulation and lowering the blood pressure. Ginger has 63 nutrients that our immune system needs. It also prevents premature ageing. Ginger root is also anti-inflammatory, improves heart health, helps expel free radicals from the body, helps lower cholesterol.

4)     Adequate levels of Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C , Vitamin D and Magnesium are important. Zinc is plentiful in cashews and pistachio nuts. Selenium can be obtained by consuming a couple of Brazil nuts a day. The best source of Vitamin C is lemons and limes.  You can squeeze and drink the juice but please ensure you use a straw to drink the juice otherwise you may damage your teeth.

5)     Another interesting concept is ORAC which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It's a lab test that attempts to quantify the "total antioxidant capacity" (TAC) of a food by placing a sample of the food in a test tube, along with certain molecules that generate free radical activity and certain other molecules that are vulnerable to oxidation. The highest ORAC value is found in cloves. These can be consumed by adding a couple of cloves in a hot cup of water and drinking the tea followed by consuming the cloves. There is some controversy about ORAC value uses in terms of health but consuming 2 cloves a day can harm no one but could provide a huge health benefit.

Role of Vitamin A and Vitamin D:

There is a preponderance of deaths in the non-white community. Up to a factor 4 times more deaths in the black community. Research has established a direct link with low levels of Vitamin D in people with darker skin. During the 2003 SARS epidemic, Chinese doctors discovered that Patients who had high levels of Vitamin D were less affected. So they advised their nation to supplement with Vitamin D. However a further re-occurrence of SARS during 2005 showed that patients with high Vitamin D were still getting affected while some did not. Further research revealed that it is a balance of Vitamin A and Vitamin D which gives the best outcomes. Vitamin A can be obtained by eating dried orange coloured apricots. Eating the kernel seed is also extremely helpful

Supplementation is very cheap but treating the patient for COVID 19 very expensive. Treatment should be patient-centred not doctor ego-centred. It is tantamount to negligence if such measures are not introduced as standard procedure for all patients where blood tests have to be carried out for any reason especially in cases involving non-white patients.

Please watch this video on Vitamin D recorded by a very close family friend and charity worker extraordinaire, Dr Don Bovel MD:

Please watch this video about our microbiome and having a good digestive system:

Primarily please follow the government’s advice on isolation and social distancing measures. Wearing a mask or a face covering to protect others is very courteous, respectful to the health of our fellow beings and important because if everyone else is so protected simple maths will show that this can reduce the spread of this infection massively.

It is well known that the virus initially manifests itself in the nostrils and the throat. The best ways to deal with viral or bacterial throat infections is by gargling with hot saltwater as the FIRST line of defence. The moment you experience any feelings of irritation in the throat please gargle with hot saltwater. You can also wash your nostrils out with hot saltwater using a netty pot. Please ensure that for the nostrils you use pre-boiled hot saltwater to avoid parasitic infection of the meninges.

If one takes the example of cold sores attributable to the herpes simplex virus which many suffer from it is claimed that if one uses Zovirax cream as soon as it starts it will go away more easily. Applying it late does not help. However, if one uses salt on the developing lesion every half hour it does not even develop fully and often times never returns again! Late administration of an antiviral is probably useless.

I wrote this article on the 1st of May 2020. My advice about the use of salt against viral infections was first mentioned here on July 13. 2014.

At last on June 25th. 2020 an article appears on the BBC website:




Please do not use any toothpaste or antiseptic mouthwashes. If you have a slimy sticky mouth this is due to the nasty ingredients in these materials. A Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa dominant biofilm infection develops by the use of these items which prevent any healing of the throat. If you wake up with bad breath than you know you suffer from such an infection. One can only imagine how lethal secondary bacterial infection under these circumstances can become if one gets infected with Covid-19. Please read my articles on oral hygiene and the use of saltwater on this website.

Another precaution that you can take is sniffing Tea Tree oil if you come close to anyone with a cold. This aborts the flu attack. I have gone flu-free for some three years now using organic Tee Tree oil sniffing it only if I think I may be exposed. It may well help to avoid Corvid virus too but no warranties are given. I have not had to take any antibiotics during this period as I have not picked up flu in spite of seeing numerous patients walking in with flu.

President Trump has been vilified for his comments about the use of antiseptics but there is a lot of merit in it, if he was surrounded by people with a broader knowledge rather than just drug and vaccine pushing medical sceptics.

Here is some information by Dr Mercola on the use of a nebuliser inhaling Hydrogen Peroxide which is an antiseptic.

He says:

"Nebulized hydrogen peroxide therapy is an inexpensive and simple way to treat most viral respiratory illnesses

“All you need is a nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose, and food-grade hydrogen peroxide, diluted to 1% Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom. The oxygen inactivates viral pathogens by breaking down the viral structure. Additionally, your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide. This is in part how your immune system kills infected cells. Hydrogen peroxide therapy aids your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively. To prevent an infection from taking hold, begin treatment at first signs of symptoms. Consult with your physician before treatment."

Please listen to the video in this link from Dr Mercola.

If you still continue to deteriorate after trying hot salt water and nebulised Hydrogen peroxide than I think it is time for further antiviral and antibiotic treatment. Some experiments are starting using just antivirals. If given at a very early stage they might succeed. It is imperative that you arm yourself with all available knowledge and act cautiously.

Recent autopsy reports point to the formation of blood clots in the lungs which cause death in COVID patients:

Breaking news today 16th June 2020:

"Dexamethasone found to reduce deaths by 35%. Major breakthrough! No doubt about it!" say the pundits!

Is it really?

It has been shown since the SARS epidemic during 2003 that patients could only be saved with the use of steroids and antibiotics. In fact, this should have been done at the outset. No brains needed. The steroids prevent the immune reaction storm which overwhelms the patients' lungs.
