Even if they do get sick, they survive very mildly. This has been shown in many studies. I am a member of the International Vitamin D Council.”
“CITIZENS MUST OBEY THE RULES MORE”

As a precaution, I always recommend all our physicians, healthcare professionals and the public to keep vitamin D and C high in their bodies. No virus can live in an environment called alkali, this is a scientific fact that has been said for years. It is real. I recommend all my friends, everyone working in health institutions and citizens to gargle with carbonated water morning and evening. It is very important to wash hands, sleep and take fluids. It is very important to take vitamin C by mouth. We definitely have vitamin D taken once a month. These are very important against viruses. Sea and salt water is also very important. I do not mix with the crowd. I also do my shopping online.”said.
