Some (good?) news regarding Italy's alarming mortality figures (which show no sign of receding) these may be due to very strange recording methods.I understand that if 1 person dies in a hospital of Cov19 all subsequent deaths in that hospital are automatically attributed to Cov19.
Maybe then some of the figures have been overinflated and we're not all going to die!!

I AM NOT AN EXPERT ON VIRUSES NOR A DOCTOR : I'M SIMPLY PASSING ON INFORMATION FROM WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE A VERY RELIABLE SOURCE. NOT ALL THIS INFO IS NEW, BUT HOPEFULLY IT MIGHT BE USEFUL. IT'S N

The virus remains in the throat in the form of thick mucus for 4 days. It solidifies and blocks the airways and lungs. In order for treatment/medicines to be effective, these airways must be unblocked first.
You can take the following measures to avoid/alleviate the problem
1. Drink lots of hot water, coffee, tea and soups.This moistens the mouth/throat and washes the virus into the stomach, where it is neutralised by gastric juices preventing it from reaching the lungs. Also sip warm water every 20 minutes.
2. Avoid cold food and drinks
3. Every day gargle with warm water and an antiseptic such as vinegar, lemon or salt
4. As soon as you feel discomfort in your throat attack it via measures as mentioned above
5. Clean metallic surfaces, door knobs and handrails carefully
6. The virus sticks to hair and clothes. Ideally after arriving home you should have a bath or shower straight away, even before sitting down.
7. Clothes should be washed daily : detergent and foamy soap kills the virus.

It is up to you if you choose to follow these sometimes very time-consuming actions. The info was passed on to us personally by someone who works in the medical profession and has access to certain info.

Well, I've just watched the BBC talking about Coronavirus myths and they've just mentioned and rubbished points 1. and 2 above.
So even though I am sure my source is serious, responsible and has some detailed knowledge, I gave to put an asterisk beside 1 and 2, according to the BEEB.
