Doesn't seem to matter whether it is a communist country or open democracy or how locked down things became. Russia has lots of covid cases compared to say New Zealand. Things were never locked down too tight here and it isn't as though there was ever a time when you could go to the bank or supermarket. By cultural I meant extended big families and crowding are hard to manage and where individual freedoms are the priority or where people are more likely to be defiant of government advice.
Countries that defy international advice and cooperation, were slow to react and had lazy double talking leadership have suffered more. A good public health system means more tests are done, they are free or cheap, hospitalisation, treatment and drugs are free or cheap and the best advice is on hand immediately makes a big difference. The every person for themselves health model doesn't go so well with pandemics.

It happens, lol!

Fish Mint has been growing well in the shade of my rollinia tree, with no care.

Asiatic Day Flower is holding on, thought it had bit the dust.

Both supposedly contain useful antiviral agents.

Do not drink Dairy with a respiratory infection

I have cured blood poisoning a lot actually
think bicycling staying awake , and not cleaning wounds not good

Yes Garlic is good for blood (antiviral ) , but I would say Onion for Lungs is better

I feel bad not going on about this, but scary seeing people buy up all the herbs to themselves
Or imagining that like people already did with toilet paper.

Edit never heard of fish mint will look into it (I thought you just said mint (mint has vitamin A)

I won't do a thing, but certainly not get the vax, so many people get severe side effects or die. Please do get informed and read both sides. Other than that I didn't know that the fish plant helps with viruses. It wants plenty of water and shade and is nearly a weed.

Vaccines save lives. Inform yourself with valid and reliable information.

We got sick in India/Nepal and recovered fast, before the name covid was coined. We were visiting an ashram, everyone got sick there and thought it was a local virus that everyone gets when one comes to Kathmandu city (crazy pollution and crowds, you get sick almost every time you go there). Everyone at the ashram was taking giloy tea daily for another disease that was rampant at that time, and everyone was recovering within a week, no oxygen tanks, no casualties. It was bad but not deadly. Don't know if the plant helped, but ayurveda regards it as one of its jewels. Now we're growing some giloy plants, just in case :-/

Thank you roblack. Of course, like with every powerful medicine, there could be counter-indications. Ayurveda is a very sophisticated science, and research should always be done before using potent herbs.

Agreed. Even too much pristine water can kill.

Hi,

Here, in French West Indies ( Guadeloupe and Martinique, but not in French Guyana ), there is an herb called Neurolaena lobata that is used for several ailments.
With Covid-19 crisis, some studies had been made showing a positive results against this virus.
Unfortunately, I didn't find significant articles in English.. 

I will post pics if you are interested.

Here is one pic of the plant that is used against covid here, by locals. See my previous message on this same post.
PS: I still ignore is name ! Sorry. ( Maybe it's Pluchea carolinensis..   )

when I was doing my undergrad research I was using cat's claw (unicaria tomentosa) as an alternative medication to model for a rheumatoid arthritis treatment. It is an extreme immune booster but does not affect TNF pathways, using PCR we discovered that it decreased HIV cell receptor sites by over 800% and increased the WBC counts when injected in mice that had been given H1N1 virus. It does have some side effects, it will decrease estrogen in women and will also decrease blood pressure as well as cause some gastrointestinal issues ( lasts about a week). It is used as a cure all in central america, one of my biology professors was from guatemala and swears that it worked as a treatment for her mother's breast cancer (decreased estrogen will block some cancers in women) that is why I used it in my research.
