Help medical researchers Identify Factors that may Help Or Worsen COVID-19 Illness?

Join Dr. Lio Yu & Dr. John Dennehy in a voluntary assessment designed to help people and doctors better understand which factors may improve / shorten novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection among those afflicted or suspected of being affected. Here is a useful COVID Home Survival Powerpoint Guide (Also in Spanish, Portuguese). Alternatively, you may also watch the COVID Home Survival Guide Video (Download in wmv format, mp4 format).

Did you know that heat destroys the Coronavirus, but freezing does not. Some news networks have erroneously reported that heat and freezing destroys the virus. Freezing, however, does the exact opposite - it preserves the Coronavirus! Read more using the following link COVID Practical Tips Guide that is being updated periodically by our team as more facts begin to surface.
