Can the common cold help you fight off COVID?

According to researchers at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Planck Institute, the common cold may help people build up an immunity to COVID-19. In a study of the blood of 18 people, who previously had the Coronavirus, the research team discovered the presence of T-helper cells which play an important role in a person’s immune response to the COVID-19 virus. StudyFinds reports: T-helper cells are critical for the development and maintenance of protective antibody responses in humans. Scientists believe these cells may play an important role in the immune response to SARS-CoV-2.” However, they also found that the same T-helper cells were present in 68 people who had never had the Coronavirus. They were uncertain where they come from, but believe the Common Cold may have resulted in the development of these cells providing people at least a partial immunity to COVID-19. StudyFinds reported on the comments of one of the lead researchers, Claudia Gieseck-Thiel: “This suggests that the T-helper cells of healthy individuals react to SARS-CoV-2 because of previous exposure to the endemic …

ICU death rates for Covid are significantly dropping

According to an article published in the medical journal Anaesthesia, the death rates for people with Covid in hospital Emergency Care Units has significant dropped since the early days of the infection. The Blaze reports: The research, led by Professor Tim Cook of England’s Royal United Hospitals Bath, revealed that the overall mortality rate of coronavirus ICU patients fell from approximately 60 percent since the end of March to 42 percent by the end of May. The researchers attributed this in part to better care, as medical staff learned how to more effectively treat Coronavirus patients.

Good News in a Pandemic

Sometimes people just act out what they are. A group of Christians noticed that people were hungry in their community, so they organized a food distribution program. The Corona virus pandemic is scaring us all, and it keeps us isolated from our neighbors. Those Christians acted out and gave food to the neighbors, because those neighbors were hungry. I don’t know them but I guess it just seemed like simple math. People like this deserve our respect. The true Christian Church is not a charity, it’s a home for recovering sinners. When we get a new life from God, with a new perspective, good things just naturally happen. READ: Local church feeds 200 people impacted by pandemic

Did you know you have been blessed?

We all know how bad the news is, these days. Sometimes a blessing comes from a curse. Some Christians decided to give a blessing to us all, and they made an interesting video. Their words may change how we feel, and if God puts good things into us, they will come out in many ways. The Spirit that made these people sing can make us all do good, and great things. I think this is a good motivation for us all, and it’s one small piece of good news, when bad news gets all the air time. In these stressful times, God bless you!

Dealing with the COVID-19 panic?

People are starting to have pandemic nightmares over COVID-19, because of the media reports. Here is some good news to counter the fear: 80% of people who get the COVID-19 virus will have mild symptoms. Nearly 50% will have no symptoms at all. Germany’s death rate for COVID-19 is .37%, that is flu numbers. Why is it so low? Because Germany is testing everyone and is finding out more people have the disease than previously thought, but had mild or no symptoms. This in turn has significantly lowered the country’s death rate for the virus. Washington State is closing down its field hospitals set up to deal with thousands of people expected to come down with COVID-19. They did not handle a single patient. New York hospitals reporting a reduction in the number of patients in ICU for the first time. INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma temporarily closes most of its facility due to “a mass decline in patients.”

Three interesting stories out of the COVID-19 pandemic

With most of the world still in lock down over the COVID-19 pandemic I decided to share three interesting stories that have merged out of this world crisis. God healed me after Mike Pence prayed for me The first involves a man from Georgia, who in an interview with CNN, claimed that prayers, and particularly the prayers of US Vice President Mike Pence, healed him of COVID-19. Clay Bentley told CNN he went to the hospital with flu-like symptoms but was sent home later that day when tests revealed no signs of the flu. That night things started getting worse for Bentley. Over the next few days, his lungs started filling with fluid making it increasingly difficult for him to breathe. When his condition worsened, Bentley returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with COVID-19. But by this time, he was in serious trouble because it was almost impossible for him to breath, which is why there is such a demand for ventilators. But suddenly and almost miraculously he started improving. He told CNN that …
