According to a report on Fox News, it appears that a new drug, Molnupiravir, developed to battle COVID-19 is showing tremendous results in second stage human trials. It stopped the Coronavirus dead in its tracks in the 182 people that were tested.
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 …
A study reported in The Economist, says that the number of people infected with COVID-19 is much higher than initially reported dramatically lowering the death rate percentage.
A study comparing how the virus spreads in regions with full lockdown and those without, indicates such lockdowns are having little effect on the spread of the virus, but devastating consequences on the respective economies. As a result of this analysis, the head of Israel’s Space Agency, Dr. Isaac Ben-Israel, is recommending that Israel end its lockdown. Their study also showed that COVID-19 has an eight-week cycle. The rate of infections increases up to four to six weeks, and then begins to subside. “This is how it is all over the world. Both in countries where they have taken closure steps like Italy and in countries that have not had closures like Taiwan or Singapore. In such and such countries there is an increase until the fourth to sixth week, and immediately thereafter moderation until during the eighth week it disappears.” — Dr. Isaac Ben-Israel, Daily Wire READ: Israeli Study Suggests Lockdown Has No Effect On Coronavirus Timeline, Says Israeli Space Agency Chair
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.”

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 …
