  1. Ironically, boosting your immune system as COVID-19 defense is suicide, since it’s your immune response that actually kills you. In fact, patients being treated for Covid are given drugs to suppress their immune system.

      I think you got the information wrong. The discussion is about people who are getting immunosuppressive therapy for a immune deficiency syndrome or autoimmune deseas. Because they would be high risk patients and would need individually specific treatment for COVID-19. There are many papers out there on it…

    1. Grade six exams should have never been change so now we are stuck with this 3 separate exams.
    2. Natural remedies works for years – Vitamin C – a shot of lime juice, sour orange, sour lemons = 100%
    You can use:- honey, garlic and eucalyptus oil
    Geni-hen bush is important tea daily as well
    Fever grass tea great daily
    A Jamaican and we are overcomers don’t forget our fore parents lessons and stronger together we shall over come.

      @nanah p it don’t matter what kind of virus as long as u boost ur immune system to a high it will defend u. The common vaccines they normally use work by they getting the virus n weaken the virus then inject the weaken virus into u so ur immune system make antibodies to kill the virus so wen u catch the stronger virus it already know how to defend ur body. So it’s all about a strong immune system. N bare in mind that covid 19 doesn’t work the same as typical vaccines, it is a GMO n not good for no human

    • I eat leaf life n gargle w/listerine if I feel flu coming on, NEVER had a flu shot n I don’t get flu. I’m old now. I like ciracee r moringa r soursop tea at times. 5 W.I. cherries daily r pineapple has vit C also.
