Potential Mitigation, Prophylactics, and Treatments to Overcome COVID-19

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


SARS-CoV-2 can naturally grow and spread from bats or rodents. There are different ways to protect oneself from such viruses. Firstly, a thorough diagnosis by different methods of testing, isolating the infected, and phased interaction with people are advanced, societal-level mitigative efforts that could be implemented. Another method of protection is to eat healthy food. Spices contain flavonoids, acetaminophen, and pseudoephedrine; these ingredients are natural and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and cause no harm. Meat that is mildly spiced, and eggs are also good to boost the immune system. Thirdly, herd immunity is a way to protect people from the virus. Around 50,000 infections in a 250-mile radius could help to develop herd immunity, but this is only a prediction. One should visit his physician if he has a high temperature or cough. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, is a new viral strain containing genetic sequences from HIV and malaria in addition to the SARS virus. COVID-19 also targets the ACE2 receptor, which is present in the lungs, heart, and kidneys. Remdesivir seems to be lowering the viral growth in some clinical studies, and in some conditions, it is still understudied and ineffective to eradicate the virus. Recent reports predicted that around 15 COVID-19 mutants have arisen in the last 5 months. The new mutants could be more active or less active, or even drug-resistant. And lastly, new vaccines or drugs must be discovered or invented in BSL3 labs. COVID-19 can be overcome by following mitigation, prophylaxis, and treatment.
