On January 21, there was a very interesting talk by Dr. Giuseppe Di Bella at the Byoblu's TgTalk about the latest alarming news of the spread of the virus that has already claimed lives in China and is transmitted from human to human.
Reports of this coronavirus are becoming more pressing and worrisome; in the last few hours the death toll seems to have risen to seventeen while the number of confirmed cases in the country rises to 440.
There have been many articles about travel concerns over Chinese New Year and hundreds of new cases, including one in the US.
The mayor of the city of Wuhan, from which the contagion originated, urges people not to enter; there is concern especially for the upcoming Chinese New Year, which will be celebrated worldwide on Jan. 25, 2020, while in Wuhan the important event has been canceled precisely in an attempt to contain the 'epidemic.
Precautionary measures are being taken in the West to ward off the possibility of the virus spreading, especially through flights arriving from China.
The likelihood of introduction of the new coronavirus into the European Union, the Ministry of Health says on its website, "is considered low, although it cannot be ruled out."
There is already talk in the newspapers of "epidemic," "alarm," "nightmare," and immediately the possibility of a vaccine against the virus is raised.
U.S. Institute of Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci points out that it will take a year for the drug-vaccine against the new virus to be available to the public.
Also expected for Wednesday, Jan. 22, was a meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Committee, convened in Geneva, at which it is to decide, whether the virus is a "public health emergency of international concern."
But how do the facts really stand? On the one hand, the so-called official sources feed, as usual, fear and panic among the population, talking about a possible epidemic, reassuring, however, that they are already working on a vaccine; on the other hand, fortunately, there are still free men of science, such as Prof. Giulio Tarro, a world-renowned virologist, who in the interview of the Byoblu's TgTalk with Dr. Giuseppe Di Bella, explains that the dangerousness of these coronaviruses in no way justifies this media doggedness.
Dr. Giuseppe Di Bella agrees with Prof. Tarro's position and explains how a certain amount of terrorism has been done by the media about these epidemics; a striking example was the avian flu, for which the multinational company Roche S.p.a grossed more than 2.5 billion euros from the sale of the expensive drug Tamiflu, which allegedly had no efficacy to justify its spread and cost.
According to Dr. Di Bella, therefore, the reflection that can be made is that, again, official information is not credible, it is not true information but is "propaganda" aimed at covert interests.
The Doctor invites us to consider these alarms with a certain skepticism,without getting involved in media terrorism, which announces upcoming planetary misfortunes and pandemics, insommat all these news should be taken with benefit of 'inventory, according to the wise doctor.
Dr. Di Bella again states that,based on the experience of top Italian researchers, a trivial product with a very low cost such as "lysozyme" could have a not insignificant role if used as an antiviral; it is a basic protein while viruses are acidic and have a very thin membrane, this substance (lysozyme) turns out to be potent on a large number of viruses, without the need to mobilize multinationals in the search for new drugs and vaccines.
If, especially at an infectious risk stage, you use lysozyme continuously an immune benefit is sure to occur.
Another consideration is that a virus as well as a bacterium or germ in order to infect must overcome "epithelial barriers" whether they be epidermal, or of the respiratory or digestive tracts or urogenital, if the epithelium is intact and efficient, a good portion of viruses are thus inactivated by the muco-ciliary movements of the respiratory and digestive tract blocking infection.
Thus, it can be understood how mundane hygienic measures such as nasal washes with saline solutions or iodized gargles, such personal hygiene are most useful in warding off the possibility of contracting the virus.
Dr. Di Bella gives special mention to the retinoids, a product that is the basis of the multitherapy designed by Prof. Luigi Di Bella, recalling how in pharmacology they are called, not surprisingly, anti-infectious vitamins, because in addition to significantly improving the defense barriers, which are always the first to hold up, they significantly improve immunity; if to these is added, in a targeted supplementation, vitamin C the rate of infection is certainly reduced according to logical scientific criteria.
In the interview given by the two luminaries, it is clear, therefore, how the so-called panic science is ready to churn out new alarms on a constant basis for the purpose of foraging the pharmaceutical industry, in the absence of real, concrete threats to public health, which can be countered by common-sense first and foremost hygienic expedients and shrewd, targeted supplementation.
We hope that as many people as possible will read this appeal and not be intimidated but take action in this regard and follow Dr. Giuseppe Di Bella's advice with confidence, delving into these very interesting issues.
