    Author(s): Bradley Field Bale*, Amy Lynn Doneen, Thomas Hight and David John Vigerust

    The strength of Corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is the fact that it is a novel virus to humans. Being a neoteric virus yields a significant advantage as the person infected possess no immunity to the pathogen. The most significant protection against a new viral infection is the ancient innate immune system. When the virus invades our cells, receptors in the cytoplasm recognize the foreign intruder and induce innate immune responses to block replication of the virus. A robust response is critical as it takes three to five days to generate the beginnings of an adaptive immune response. The front line innate immune response is often powerful enough to eliminate the virus before the development of more severe late-phase infection, which relies on acquired immunity for resolution. A recent scientific discovery demonstrates a natural, safe, and accessible self-admi.. Read More»
