Today we’re going to talk about coronavirus susceptibility and susceptibility to other viruses. When someone sneezes, about 20,000 little droplets containing viruses are projected through the air. For viruses like COVID-19 to spread, it has to be propelled in the air, and you have to come in contact with it. Certain viruses have targets for certain tissues.
The coronavirus targets the lungs. Viruses are everywhere. One liter of seawater contains over 100 billion viruses. So, it really all comes down to susceptibility. The purpose of a virus is to deliver its DNA or RNA into the host cell to be copied so it can continue. Viruses go through 5 stages: 1. They attach to the cell wall (this is easier for it to do if you’re susceptible) 2. They penetrate the cell wall 3. They go into the nucleus and replicate 4. They assemble 5. They are released Some viruses go dormant and wait until you’re older, weakened, nutritionally deficient, or stressed, and then they come out. This could be why many people get a virus outbreak during stress states. Certain viruses can also activate the release of sugar.
Susceptibility factors: 1. Age 2. Nutritional deficiencies 3. Genetics 4. Weak immune system 5. Chronic disease 6. Stress Out of all of these factors, you have the most control over the nutrients you get. Getting the right nutrients can also influence your immune system and even stress. Two things happen when you have nutritional deficiencies:
1. It weakens your immune system
2. It makes viruses stronger If we take a look at the fatality rate of the coronavirus pandemic and age, the fatality rate is much higher as the age group gets older. For example, people in their 80s and older may have a higher risk of death than people in their 50s and younger. COVID-19 also has a much lower fatality percentage than other viruses like ebola SARS and MERS. Key nutrients for viruses: 1. Vitamin C 2. Vitamin E
5. Vitamin D
