With over a million people infected around the world – and thousands of deaths and counting – and, and a vaccine that would only be available in 12-18 months…
Who needs a vaccine then?
After all, many would have already died. Besides, once it’s out in the market, who and how many could actually afford it? Not to mention the corrupt hands it is likely to go through before it could get to you – if ever. Hey, it’s even a benison already that a vaccine for COVID-19 is being developed. If not for being widespread that it has affected the global economy and the elite, the vaccine would have surely taken a back seat.
Ever heard that vaccines do even take at least 10 years before it’s publicly available? Well, we do not exactly buy safety and toxicity tests, clinical trials and FDA approval as the reasons. These could logically be done in less than two years – if there’s prioritizing, if you’re highly imaginative in studying and predicting (where testing becomes shorter yet very accurate, thus, affecting all other processes) the virus, and if there’s proper delegation among researchers.
And no, certainly, not because scientists do not want to make vaccines but because Big Pharma sees vaccines as not profitable. High risk and low reward so to speak. They would rather make medications for diabetes and hypertension that would rake them millions and billions – than fund vaccines that would just be less profitable.
Talk about capitalism.
Still, if they make the vaccines more affordable – then many could buy it, yet again, it would be for lesser profits.
Then why don’t these scientists just make them without Big Pharma? Funding. Obviously. Scientists that are only supported by government institutions and universities would not go very far. We’re not even talking about illegal or unethical behavior here that could further hurt funding. Anyway, a collaboration between scientists and Big Pharma would only end up having a product that is to the dictates of the pharmaceutical industry.
A product that is less effective. A product that you have to ‘keep buying’ for one’s health maintenance and for Big Pharma’s pockets.
How to beat COVID-19 without vaccines
The decision then falls on us. On humans not known as Big Pharma or elites. Our health is our responsibility – and you should know that by now.
Stay healthy. Eat healthy. Live healthy.
That’s how you beat COVID-19 without vaccines. That if ever you get infected, you would recover faster. As we keep saying, focus on strengthening your immune system. Align your treatment if you are sick. Be responsible.
And do not wait for the vaccine anymore.
Did you know that vaccines do not really work well on the elderly and those with compromised immune systems? This means, whatever your social status or age, you could still get infected and die from COVID-19 if you got a weak immune system.
A vaccine only triggers our immune system to go to work. To prevent infection on ‘healthy’ people.
If you got a strong immune system, age would not matter. Notice that there are even elderly people who have recovered from coronavirus? It is because they got a strong immune system.
Even the kitchen sink has already been thrown here. From cancer drugs to HIV drugs to SARS drugs to even hair lice drugs. But these are only in hopes of finding a cure – not to shield you from infection. Drugs, in this case, are curative in purpose. It’s not a supplement for strengthening and prevention.
It’s just that speed is of the essence here and repurposed drugs could jump start the process. However, scientists should just be quick to see the possibilities. Like, viral mutations – not just spotting differences between drugs and diseases. Like, don’t wait for the virus to react or what. Make it react. Be smarter than the virus to speed up vaccine development and not rely on quick fixes, otherwise, very conservative action.
Convalescent plasma therapy can only do so much. Think about this. Plasma from a recovered patient can only potentially be given to 2-4 infected people. Potentially – not ‘surely’. And how many has recovered (compared to those infected) anyway? Do the math. More so, 6 percent of patients who recovered do not develop antibodies which even lessens the number of possible donors. So don’t rely on antibodies, too. Even if they use humanized antibodies. It may reach you, it may not. Besides, their effects do not last as long as vaccines do. Thence, better use antibodies on healthcare workers to protect them instead.
As for humanity, just stay home. Wash your hands. Wear a face mask. Observe social distancing. It’s the age of COVID-19, so cooperate to flatten the curve. But before all those – watch your health, your diet, your lifestyle. That’s how you beat COVID-19 without vaccines.
Work out, exercise!
