Did COVID-19 originate in the USA?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There have been a lot of accusations about the origin of COVID-19, on top of all the misinformation and misrepresentation by the Main Stream Media and National Leaders about the lethality and spread of the virus. While the entire history and details of these controversies is beyond the scope of a single article, I believe it is necessary, now, to consider the facts which are lining up with the possibility that COVID-19 spread from the USA to China and thence to the rest of the world.

As has been reported, the first known cases of COVID-19 were reported at the end of November, 2019, at Wuhan China. This is where the story begins and ends, as it were, because here I will discuss what happened in the years and months previous.

Where was COVID-19 developed?

First, it is now admitted by the U.S. Government that the research on chimeric Coronavirus strains was done at Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Indeed, in an article, entitled, “Lab-Made Coronavirus Triggers Debate“, and dated Nov, 16, 2015, Jef Akst of The Scientist, reported that chimeric research into gain of function studies done at Chapel Hill caused an international controversy. It is not certain, however, if the article contains the original information, since it now bears an update notice of March 11, 2020, which is attempting to deflect interest in the story — a most unusually and journalistically unethical editorial decision. Significantly, however, the Coronavirus being modified at Chapel Hill, was a species found in Chinese Bats.

The controversy was such that it led to a Congressional moratorium on chimeric research in the USA. At which point, Dr. Antonio Fauci diverted 3.7 Million U.S. Dollars of U.S. Taxpayer monies to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to continue the research. Rudy Giuliani, legal counsel to U. S. President Donald Trump, and former Mayor of New York city, recently demanded an explanation from Dr. Fauci for this transfer, which violated U.S. Laws against funding the research.

In addition to the research done at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the specific kind of research into Coronaviruses as possible biological warfare agents, was being done at Fort Detrick, Maryland, USA, by the U. S. Army, which has a Level 3 and 4 Biowarfare Lab at the military base. This lab was cited by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in July, 2019 for failure to maintain proper containment standards, and was partially shut down in November, according to Military.com’s April 1, 2020 report. The citation by the CDC referred to its steam sterilization plant. It was reopened on April 1, 2020, following the certification of the CDC on March 27. However, Military.com, in its November 24, 2019 report, said something different: the Fort Detrick Labs were partially shut down for 2 incidents: 1) the failure to close the door on the autoclave sterilization unit, and 2) the failure to obtain sufficient sterilization by means of chemical waste treatment process. Problems, which obviously refer to the possibility of organisms or toxins escaping from the facility.

ABC News reported on April 9, 2020, The U.S. Military Medical Intelligence knew in November, before China, it appears, that the new infection at Wuhan could possible become a major contagion.

The fact that the Fort Detrick labs were partially shut down simultaneously with the US Military Medical Intelligence Report of November, 2019, of the danger of the possible new contagion at Wuhan, does argue strongly that the U.S. Military knows what the source of the contagion was, though it does not prove that it was intentionally released.

US Participation in the 2019 World Military Games in Wuhan, China

The 2019 World Military Games was held in Wuhan, China, from October, 18, to October 27, 2019. These games are officially known as the 7th CISM Military World Games, on account of the French name of the International Coordination Committee. Athletic competitions included participation of more than 9,300 athletes in 28 sports.

The U.S. Armed forces sent a team of 266 athletes — it seems no one is reporting their names however — which placed 35th in total number of medals won, according to Wikipedia. A very poor showing by Olympic Standards considering the size of the team sent. According to the U.S. Armed Forces Sports Facebook page, the Games were held from Oct. 14 to 27, however.

Strangely, the official site for U.S. Armed Forces Sport omits entirely any mention that the U.S. participated at the Wuhan Games, except for articles which speak about the games before October of 2019. It is as if the achievement of the U.S. Team have gone down a memory hole. As for the names of the Athletes, there seems not to be available a complete list, which would clarify from which U.S. Military Units they originate, or where in the U.S. they trained before they came to China.

The Department of Defense, official site, however, does have special coverage and several articles about the U.S. Team participation in the Wuhan Games. Of the U.S. Soccer Team’s performance Joe Lacdan of Army News service writes:

Throughout most of the first half of play, the U.S. team was in lockstep with everything Qatar could kick at them. The U.S. team maintained a 0-0 score until a free kick in the 27th minute allowed Qatar to take a 1-0 lead. And that is when the U.S. team lost its way for the next 10 minutes. Ten minutes is all it took for Qatar to score two more goals and go up 3-0 before the half.

The U.S. Defense Virtual Information Diffusion Service, however, covered the games, so that U.S. participants and tourists in China could access the information. This source claimed that more than 280 U.S. Military Personnel attended, participating with 17 teams. But strangely they do not report the names of the team members.

Seeing that China is accusing the U.S. Military of brining COVID-19, you would think that a rebust response to the accusation — if false — would include complete disclosure regarding who attended and whether they got sick while there. According to the Russian Orthodox Monk, Br. Nathanael, five of U.S. personnel did come down sick, when there. He claims they were admitted to Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital for fever, and then for malaria. According to the Medical Journal, The Lancet, this hospital was an early site for Coronavirus patient treatment.

What does genetics tell us?

A recent genetic study of Coronavirus strains world wide shows that there are in existence, presently, 3 forms of the Virus. They are labeled, A, B, and C.

Form C is found in Singapore and spread to Europe. It appears to have originated from Form B.

Form B is the dominant kind found among COVID-19 patients in Wuhan. For some reason, in China it is listed as evolving slowly, but quickly outside of China — which seems biologically impossible.

Form A was found among Americans who live in Wuhan and Americans who live in the USA. Form A is also the original form of the Virus.

And this final fact casts a lot of doubt and speculation that COVID-19 did exist in the U.S.A., and was brought to Wuhan by American Citizens attending the 7th CISM World Military Games. However, I can find no evidence that Fort Detrick has athletic facilities which were used by the US Teams, even though there are several military units stationed there, who undoubtedly do have such facilities:

Only when the U.S. Military divulge the names of the 280 personnel who went to Wuhan, and to which Military Units they belonged, and where they trained, and who got sick at Wuhan, will these doubts be dispelled — if they are only doubts.

Silence, however, implies otherwise.

Of course, COVID-19 might not be the cause of the pandemic, since it was reported in October of 2019, by the New York Times that Australian had a very severe flu season just prior to that.

The Myths of Wuhan: how numbers were exaggerated to justify imprisoning 57 million Chinese

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

In a scenario which was first executed in China but which has now come to your country, the response to the Wuhan Virus has been eerily similar and it has been the same one as the Marxist Dictatorship of China.

Wake up to the brave new world order, in which you live!

We have heard weeks on end of propaganda about the horrible plague in Wuhan, which has killed untold numbers of individuals.

But the facts show that int he 4th quarter of 2019, the total number of deaths, counted by burials, was only 1583 higher than the same period in 2018!  And this for a city of 16 Million! This, statistically, is only an increase of 2.8%, on a death rate that is only 1.4 per hundred annually. Not even a blip by the numbers — though we cannot discount the tragedy of even one human life lost.

So to prevent 1583 deaths, the Dictatorship of Peking ordered the largest act of de facto imprisonment in world history: 57 million persons were confined to their homes in Hubei province!

In Archeology we know this: you can fake estimate upon estimate of statistics about population and sickness. But if you cannot find the graves, then the truth is rather quite different.

Admittedly those burial stats are for the last Quarter of 2019. The information is not yet in for 2020.

But what is proven and undeniable is, however, the imprisonment of several billion human beings. The foe, a virus which is as much as 1/10 as lethal as the common winter flu.

Perhaps the leaders of the world have gone mad. But it might just be that those who lobby them to make decisions which benefit this industry or that, have been overly effective.

But what industry would that be? Hmmmmmm.

Even if no more people die, I think we will be seeing a massive push in every nation for new laws to empower the World Health Organization to take control of sovereign nations in the next pandemic. New laws to require that we all get vaccinated for Coronavirus. And new regulations that we cannot leave our homes, work, or engage in any economic activity without certifying that we, like all livestock, are healthy and disease free.

Welcome to the cowardly new world of population management. What is next, sterilizing us secretly with vaccines to reduce the world to 500 Million? Nah, that would be a conspiracy theory, except for the fact, that it was already tried in Kenya.

Conte has used manipulated death stats to justify super-Fascist control of Italy

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Corona virus “pandemic” is beginning to look like a complete fabrication. Just like the claim of Bergoglio to be pope, the more you investigate it the more lies you find.

The latest is a report by Sarah Newey, writing for one of the United Kingdom’s leading newspapers, The Telegraph. She quotes Professor Walter Ricciardi, scientific adviser to Italy’s Ministry of Health, on just how many of those reported dead from coronavirus actually did die of coronavirus?

“On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three,” he says.

This means that of the latest death toll, published 17 hours ago, of 6820 persons, only 12% died of corona virus. That means the real statistic is 818. And that means the real mortality rate for all those reported to be infected, 69,176 is more like 1.18% which is nearly exactly that of what is being seen in the USA which has a much more efficient health care system (because it is not socialized medicine).

But as I mentioned previously, the actual mortality rate for coronavirus in hospitals of proven cases, will be 640% higher than in the general population, due to the fact that most never develop symptoms which warrant a visit to the doctor. So the total mortality rate for the entire population will be more like 18.48 per ten thousand. — To put that in perspective, the mortality rate for all those who get the winter flue is 10.

But the Italian statistic needs to be modified further, because they reported that 99.8% of all who died, had a co-morbidity, that is were already very sick on account of having diabetes, heart, lung or liver disease or some other pathology. The Italian Institute of Health still has not divulged how many had AIDS, which is crucially important to understand why patients are dying, since AIDS patients have a 700% higher likelihood of dying from a respiratory infection.

To be clear, you can die of coronavirus and you can die with coronavirus but by some pre-existing condition. Most of us have 100s of other species of virus in us all the time, but we do not die from any one of them, because we are healthy and our immune system is constantly at war with it.

So if none of those dying are AIDS patients, then the real Italian figure is going to be not 18 per 10,000 but much lower. In fact, in 2012 the annual death rate in Italy was 92.2 per 10,000, of which 35% died of the top 4 most common pathologies. That means 32 per 10,000 is the normal death rate for those dying of pathologies in Italy, approximately (though by using 2012 figures for 2020, this is obviously not a scientifically accurate estimate).

So the 18 death rate for Italy will be more like 6 per 10,000 for Corona virus IF everyone in the Country contracts the disease. But only 19% seem to ever catch it, if you take the statistic of the recent cruise ship which was quarantined with 3700 passengers aboard as any indication of what the infection rate would be in the ideal infectious environment.

It also means that the real death rate in Italy for Corona virus has not even risen to 20% of the normal death rate! But no one shuts down the nation for the normal death rate.

And that means, that if the government wants Corona virus to appear to be a pandemic, they have a lot of dead people they can claim as victims, even if none of them are.

I recall a man from Scotland who berated me the other day for saying just the same thing. Oh well, I suppose sometimes I do just go on being proven right, even though, I wish I were wrong. It just goes to show you, in every argument, stick to the facts, and you will win, win and win. Whereas those whose minds are possessed by propaganda, hype and left wing ideologies, will always end up frustrated that their imaginary world is not the world we all live in.

In the meantime, Italians are up in arms that Giuseppe Conte, the Italian PM, the other day, spoke to the nation directly on Facebook and then the next day put his speech into a decree. They are up in arms because this is was the style of government of Mussolini, the Fascist Dictator.

I think I demonstrated that Conte’s government is more like Mussolini than Italian might realize.

I think I also gave good indication that the death rate for coronavirus in any nation is never going to exceed the normal death rate: it just will be associated in part with those who were in bad states of health and who die in high numbers each year from pre-existing pathologies.

COVID-19: Air quality is a major factor, if not the principal cause of death

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The latest statistics on the mortality resulting  in occasions of COVID-19 infection are proving the hype is hype: that is, there is now no statistical reason to consider the Wuhan Virus any reasonable cause of mortality. This is a bold claim, but I will prove it with proven statistics.

As we all know, inasmuch as a virus is a organic organism — it is not living, because it cannot reproduce of itself, it only multiplies by causing the disintegration of living cells — the mechanisms for infection and mortality should be the same in all members of the same species accross the globe. This is because each species of animal has the same body temperatures and genetic make up.

Yes, in human beings, there are some genetic variations by race which might contribute to having an advantage to surviving an infectious disease: genes for the immune system, for example.  Of these, those ethnic groups outside of sub-saharan Africa have 60-70 more genes and thus are less likely to succumb. Ebola was a perfect example. Few victims have every been of those races.

But for Coronavirus the statistics tell a different picture.  Infection rates from the most reliable sources per nation are telling a different story. Let’s take a look at the worse cases: those nations with the highest claimed rates of infection per million:

978     ITALY
1665   ICELAND
1462   ANDORRA

What do all those nations have in common? The ones in blue are tiny countries, so it could be argued that the numbers of total citizens are too low to be statistically accurate, or since they are so small, the concentration of persons are extremely high. But that does not explain Switzerland and Iceland or even Luxembourg. Italy’s cases are nearly all in Northern Italy.

What they all have in common, excluding Vatican City, is that they are mountainous regions with frigid air or regions with heavy fog humidity in the Winter and Spring.

But such climates heavily tax the lungs and health of patients. That is why there is normally a higher mortality among the weak in January to March each year.

But to see how much climate might be the principal factor in your chances of contracting the Wuhan Virus, let us look at large nations with large populations:

China has 56 infections per million. Though clearly that statistic is meaningless because only the province of Hubei, of which Wuhan is the capital, is heavily infected. Hubeai province has 58.5 million persons according to a 2015 estimate, and that represents 4.2% of the population. So the real infection rate of Hubei province is probably more like 1300. Wuhan has lots of pollution in the air. Its air quality today was 127 compared to Hong Kong which was 50. A quality of 127 is considered unhealthy, according to Aqicn.org, which reports live air quality statistics for cities round the world.

Spain has 640 infections per million. In the winter, the air in Spain is generally very damp, due to the storms which blow in off the Atlantic Ocean. Most of Spain is also at high altitude.

Germany has 312 infections per million. In the winter the air in Germany is damp, though most of the country is not at high altitude, the Germans have the custom of opening the windows of their homes for a hour or more each day, even in winter. They believe fresh air is good for the health.

Iran has 258 infections per million. But this statistic is not reliable, because nearly all the infections have been in the capital, Tehran, which has only 8.649 million people, whereas Iran has 80.28 million. Both these statistics are for 2016.  That means that the rate of infection for Tehran is more like 2,400 per million.  Tehran has lousy weather in the winter, with humidity levels on average over 50% for the entire winter. But smog is worse, giving Tehran one of the worst ratings for air quality in all the world (source).

While these statistics are not entirely determinative — due to the fact that it may be that the virus spread to these places before others — nevertheless they raise serious questions whether those who are alleged to be dying from the Wuhan Virus are in fact dying from respiratory stress from a variety of causes, especially climate or air quality, of which only the Wuhan Virus is being faulted for political reasons.

For the latest statistics on the Wuhan Virus around the globe, see Worldometers.Info, from which the stats on infection rates have been taken for this article.

Corona Hype was a planned psyop to enslave the minds of humanity

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Corona Virus Hype was a plan and a plot by international Marxists (Globalists) to terrorize the world and seize control of the minds of all humanity. It is a plot so diabolical and so evil that it staggers the mind. But the facts are right out in the open. So let’s review them.

Event 201

According to the John Hopkins Center for Health Security, Event 201 is described thus:

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise

In recent years, the world has seen a growing number of epidemic events, amounting to approximately 200 events annually. These events are increasing, and they are disruptive to health, economies, and society. Managing these events already strains global capacity, even absent a pandemic threat. Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions.

I have not altered that quote!  It is obvious they were preparing in advance for Corona Virus, before Corona Virus was event known to exist!

If you follow that link, in the article, cited above, you find this statement, which attempts to deny what they were up to:

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise

In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.

Note carefully what they are saying and not saying. They deny that their 201 Event Exercise predicted the Corona Virus pandemic.  But a plan to deceive is not a prediction. Because a prediction presupposes you are not in control. Look how many times they deny it was a prediction! They even “did not predict” the genus of the virus, as a corona virus!

But, as I published the other day, China had already weaponized in 2015 a Corona virus at their Wuhan BioWarfare Lab. So they were telling the truth when they insisted that the did not predict it, because the other sense of the word, “predict”, is to speak of something before it exists, not after it exists!

Clade X Pandemic Exercise of May, 2018

The John Hopkins Center for Health Security held a similar exercise in May. Here is their opening video:


The emphasis that their proposals are non-partisan immediately puts the tone in the realm of politics. As you can see from the exercise, the participants were not informed about what would happen. Their reactions are monitored to see how they would react.

As an Anthropologist I can tell you that such an exercise is intended to develop a plan for mass psychological manipulation. Because what you see in test groups, concerning how they react to a crisis, are necessary data upon which to establish plans for social psychological manipulation.

We have created a Pandemic…

The same social experimentation was used in the Event 201, but listen to what Mrs. Cicero, who now calls herself the Master of Cerimonies for the event — a title used for religious events — says at 2:40 minutes into this video:


The 201 Scenario is fictional, but it is based on public health principles, epidemiological modeling and the assessment of past outbreaks.  In other words, we have created a pandemic, which could realistically occur.

You cannot make this up!

As you can see, the Event 201 exercise in October 2019 , followed the Cladex exercise in May, 2018.  This means, granting some time for organizational repose after a major event, the Event 201 exercise was at least thought up in the summer of 2018, and thus was a year in the making. This means that the context of Mrs. Cicero’s statement in October, 2019, “We have created a Pandemic” is a lot more pregnant with meaning.

According to Aria Bendix, writing for the Business Insider, the Event 201 Exercise was organized by Eric  Toner., who according to the Center for Health Security, has a M.D. in internal medicine, clearly someone who is not qualified to run an exercise to study virological responses of populations.  Therefore, one can be certain that the purpose of the Event 201 exercise was neither academic nor professional

They knew about it before us

I know from my work in graphical arts and publicity, that publicity takes time to design and organize and produce and publish. A chain of stores cannot just roll out new posters in a matter of days. It takes weeks or months of planning and preparation. That is why, I found it very curious that here in the center of Rome, at the store, Rinascente — which is a chain for high end fashion, there were a series of posters in the style of the Soviet Union, urging passers by to accept the Stay at Home Decree which went into effect at Rome on March 11. Here are my photos, which I took this morning:





This last photo is worthy of comment. Notice how these posters are in Italian and English. This seems to indicate that they were produced when the Chain’s management still believed that English speaking tourists would still be in town. Thus, they had to be prepared before any of the decrees were imposed, either upon their stores in Lombardy or at Rome. But this final image is telling. Of all the images it depicts the black woman as having the smallest head. This is social commentary. They are saying that they know you are idiots and will accept the propaganda. But this kind of overt racism against Black women is found only among Socialists, Chinese and Arabs. And they just happen to be those who want the One Religion Initiative, which Bergoglio and Trump’s Ambassador to the Vatican both publicly approved.

Psychological-Economic warfare

We have entered the brave new world of psychological warfare, used not at the opponents military forces or even at his general population in time of a military war, but openly during peacetime.

As the social commentatrix, the Amazing Polly observed the other day, there are 4 possible motives for engineering a world-wide psyop to hoodwink the political leaders and masses of every nation.

The first, as she suggests, is the vested interest Bill Gates has, who sponsored the Event 201. Bill Gates is heavily invested in the latest vaccine technology which will incorporate machine readable methods of monitoring who has and who has not taken which vaccines. Its the literal dream of dreams for a technocrat with sociopathic megalomaniacal ambitions.

The second, is as she guesses, is  short term economic warfare, in retaliation for the trade restrictions imposed by Trump on China. Since a deal was in the works when the Wuhan Virus was released by the BioWarfare lab, I discount this reason.

The third reason, I believe, is long term economic warfare. By causing the world to shut now all but essential economic activity, the world economy will collapse. Notice how China has not shut down their economy. They are obviously preparing to seize massive amounts of market share in the world economy as soon as the crisis ends, if it ever ends. Flooding the world with low prices goods, made by slave labor, while the other nations literally imprison their entire working population, which insists on higher wages. It makes sense, if you have an extremely diabolic mind. Needless to say, if you are a Marxist or a Capitalist, you could be induced to sign on to such a plan, if you did have such a diabolic mind.

The fourth reason, is Satanic. The men allied with the forces of darkness want to utterly eradicate Christianity, which requires group assembly on a weekly basis. A concocted pandemic with stay-at-home requirements achieves this goal perfectly. A Satanic leadership in the Vatican is also 100% on board with this and is ordering it throughout the world, Cardinal Sarah included. Even Burke laments it, but goes along.

And I will add one reason of my own:

The fifth reason, is Antichristic. The men who are working for the advent of the Antichrist are fully convinced that the entire Christian culture must be eradicated. A culture founded upon Truth from God, must be replaced with a culture founded upon lies from men who take God’s  place.

Well, it’s happening before our eyes. And they told us they were going to do it in advance.

Melatonin, a cure for lethal Corona Virus pulmonary inflammation

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Doris Loh in a highly researched article, entitled, COVID-19, Pnemonia & Inflammasomes the Melatonin connection, traces out the scientific evidence of mortality caused by the Corona virus and proposes the cure the worst symptom suffered by those infected.

Please note that neither I nor Mrs. Loh are medical professionals and that nothing we say should be used for medical practice.

But the information she has gathered does indicate a startling simple preventative measure for those infected.

The chief cause death by the Wuhan virus is respiratory failure. That is, a person dies from suffocation. This is cause by the natural ability of the Corona virus to exacerbate or exaggerate the natural response of the human body to become inflamed so as to isolate infection.

This response is caused by inflammasomes, which Nature.com defines thus:

The inflammasome is a multiprotein intracellular complex that detects pathogenic microorganisms and sterile stressors, and that activates the highly pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1b (IL-1b) and IL-18. Inflammasomes also induce a form of cell death termed pyroptosis. Dysregulation of inflammasomes is associated with a number of autoinflammatory syndromes and autoimmune diseases.

Speaking about SARS, which is a corona virus, studies have shows that its lethalness depends in great part on its ability to cause an exaggerated response of inflammasomes in the human body. Doris Loh explains this:

Proinflammatory cytokines defend host cells from invading pathogens, but they are also capable of driving pathological inflammation [46].  During viral infections, inflammation can act in dynamically opposing antiviral and proviral roles. Inflammatory responses can inhibit viral replication and lower infection, but inflammation also has the capacity to release a large number of virions, further disseminating viral infection to cells like macrophages which will spread the virus to various other tissues and organs in the host [46].

SARS-CoV coronaviruses encode viroporin proteins to activate inflammasomes in order to facilitate viral dissemination. The recent discovery of the ORF3a viroporin further deepens understanding as to why SARS-CoV can exert so much damage when infecting hosts. 

Melatonin’s powerful effects on Inflammasome storms

Doris Loh explains that scientific studies have already demonstrated that Melatonin is the organic compound used by the human body to moderate inflammatory responses. She writes:

Melatonin is well known for its chronobiotic effects, regulating biological functions tied to circadian rhythms.  Numerous studies have revealed that melatonin exerts effects beyond the control of circadian oscillators. The NLRP3 inflammasome is now recognized as a target for melatonin! 

The fact that the pro-inflammatory cytokine storm effects are induced by the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes, the ability of melatonin to INHIBIT NLRP3 inflammasome elevates this powerful molecule to a truly unique position in the fight against COVID-19.  This also means that if a patient, regardless of age, has adequate melatonin, the infectiousness of COVID-19 will be greatly reduced, and the chances of developing ARDS/ALI significantly diminished.  

Melatonin is the reason why children under the age of 9 seldom exhibit severe symptoms. In fact, children may exhibit mild or even no symptoms at all, even though they have been infected by SARS-CoV-2 [73].  How significant is the difference in melatonin production between children, adults and the elderly?

For most people, peak melatonin production is between the hours of 2 am to 3 am.  The maximum melatonin levels measured in healthy adults between the ages of 65 to 70 years appeared to be around 49.3 picograms/ml (pg/ml).  Adults more than 75 years of age only have maximum production levels of 27.8 pg/ml [74].  

Young children, on the other hand, have extremely high melatonin levels, compared to adults.  The maximum levels recorded for children showed a decline as age increased. Children between the ages of 1 to 5 had peak melatonin at 325 pg/ml, while those between the ages of 5 to 11 already declined to 133 pg/ml [76].  

What makes the information presented by Doris Loh so convincing are the extensive citations to reputable sources. Her article contains more than 102 referenced and often linked footnotes.


This conclusion by Doris Loh does not mean that if you are young you cannot survive the Wuhan virus. But it does meant that as soon as anyone above 35 years of age, or who works at night, is infected, he should start receiving daily a dose of at least 1 mg of Melatonin to prevent the exaggerated response of inflammation in his lungs, which the Corona viruses are known to produce.

Melatonin, which is regularly sold in para-pharmacies and pharmacies for those wishing to benefit from its natural properties to aid in sleeping, is an easy solution to one symptom of Corona virus infection. It does not kill the virus, but it gives the body more time to do that job while insuring the lungs remain open to provide the necessary oxygen to the patient.

Why is such a simply solution not being used in hospitals? Because modern medical training does not prepare medical staff to be knowledgeable in how natural compounds, not sold by pharmaceutical companies can aid to cure disease.
