The extent of proliferation of the virus was rather unexpected for millions. People's schedules and plans were disrupted or postponed to nobody-knows-what-time. Many industries have come to stop or been ruined.
Presumably, it will take a huge amount of time to recover and get back to its previous capacities and profits. Most of the small and mid-size businesses and start-ups were shut-down or compelled to work online. For those markets that work offline, like open-air markets or cafes, or restaurants, the present contingency caught them unawares and forced them to devise something that would make their business stay afloat and still deliver the services to the clients.
Major part of online markets remained unshattered but with minor decline in sales due to the scarcity of funds for purchasing on credit. Now all the industries have to struggle and are desperately finding the ways out to adapt to the new realities.
Now it is evident that most of the people were not ready to meet the challenges and hardships they were going to face. Nobody thought it would go that far and become a global problem, not only China's.
When the information about the COVID-19's spread first appeared in daily news reports it seemed temporary and even "common". Within the last 20 years we had several emerging viruses that threatened some of the countries, such as Ebola, H1N1 avian influenza, A/H1N1 swine influenza.
But the agility of the Coronavirus surprised many, even the seasoned doctors and researchers. To diminish the spread of the virus the nations united in joint efforts to take unprecedented measures. The world was literally isolated. The world countries closed their borders. The movement between cities was restricted or prohibited.
The question is, do these actions really solve the problem and is there any cure against the COVID-19 in Russia and UK, or anywhere in the world. Some of the world's recognized and acknowledged persons assert that the only remedy to battle against the virus would be vaccination. This matter is somewhat questionable as no vaccine until now helped those who got sick these days. The pharmaceutical companies promise to make a new vaccine by the end of 2020. But, will it really help against the current pandemic? We will see.
But what should we do now? We have to protect ourselves and our loved ones. One of the ways is to get isolated for some time and stay at home for a week or a month. But this is just a preventive or defensive measure, not offensive. It looks like we are vulnerable to this disease and have no means to curb it. But is it really so?
Well, first of all, we have to determine, what this virus is and how it bites, and how it spreads. There are a lot of theories and speculations on this subject. Some say that this is just a common virus, which was known at least for the last 10 years. Other people say that this virus contains a combination of snake's and bat's genomes that makes it malignant and strong. Fewer people think that this is an outburst of Cynthia bacteria used in the gulf of Mexico for containing the oil film, which caused sea animals throw themselves out on to the shores. Reading and hearing all of this does not help us much.
But we still have to protect ourselves against this disaster. To be sure you can do it you have to know a little bit about what bacteria or virus is, how it exists, lives, and populates. Any virus is a biological organism that has its strong and weak points. And like any other biological being it can be harnessed.
Both nature and pharmaceutical companies or just interested individuals – medical researchers and developers - work well to fight against all kinds of viruses. You can also find online numerous remedies and means to kill this virus or at least to reduce its activity.
Among others, the top and first position is taken by natural antibiotics and sanitizers. These are: ginger, turmeric, garlic, lemon, celery. The second position belongs to local antiviral medications, including those containing vitamin C, arbidol, anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, the antibiotic azithromycin, and various biologics and blood thinners. Hope it will help those who are ill to recover and get back to normal life without complications.
Whatever helps people to stay healthy would be fine as long as it does not bring any harm or side effects.
The Russian Federation like the UK has taken all necessary measures to strengthen the efforts against the COVID-19. We all hope it will bring positive and long-lasting results.
