Backing to our Normal life prior to Covid-19

We need to have a government funds to complete the research and manufacture to make a completely new product that will be unique and has never been made before. Currently all or may be majority of scientists that are involved... more »

Put local textile companies to work to fight COVID!

Reusable hospital/ISO gowns already exist - look into putting your small and large local textile businesses back to work by having them switch to manufacturing hospital gowns. They are reusable so put laundry companies back to work by supporting the gown washing.

Everything will need to be approved by your local health departments, especially the materials and proper cleaning methods, but this can help everyone. And... more »

Test to find out if mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects can transmit Covid 19.

Since we know ticks and mosquitos already transmit viruses(Rocky Mountain spotted fever, West Nile and Lyme disease to name just a few.of the dozens that are transmittable through a bite) to humans, we need to know if Covid 19 can be transmitted in this fashion too.

If it is found to be transmittable in this fashion a further lockdown may be required along with possible pest management in high population areas.

Remove the current occupant in the Whitehouse as he is incapable of doing what needs to be done on a nation wide scale.

Use the 25th amendment to remove both him and his sycophant lackeys that are not looking out for the interests of the people of the United States, the state and local governments and territories in this pandemic as well as not supporting the hospitals and their workers sufficiently enough.

We need a leader who is capable of actually leading a nationwide effort to keep supply chains running, essential goods being manufactured,... more »

The best measures to contain COVID-19

I have the best measures to contain COVID-19.

Containing COVID-19 is not just a matter of medicine, but it's more likely a matter of physics. Frankly, I'm a physicist of genius. I'm absolutely sure wearing fabric gloves and masks can contain COVID-19. The reason as follows:

1\. If COVID-19 is transmitted through hand, hand washing is good, but wearing fabric gloves is far better. Because the virus is very small, when... more »

For locations for COVID19 treatment why not encourage use of vacant Box Stores (Sears, K-Mart) or university dorms?

There seems to be a lot of talk about where to locate overflow facilities. Why not use something that is vacant?

One major area of vacancy throughout the US is malls, and in particular the #boxstores of Sears, K-Mart other chains that often had stand-alone stores and certainly stores with their own entrances.

The advantages are many--the stores are vacant, so no disposessing anyone. They have electric lines, air conditioning,... more »

Community Paramedicine for Offensive Operations Against COVID19

We are on the defensive, waiting for our ICUs to be overrun by patients that are being allowed to deteriorate untreated at home until they become acute.

That is a losing strategy.

I propose we take the fight to the enemy before it reaches and overruns our base camps.

We do that with interdiction actions taken in the field...delivery of early onset care in the field utilizing Community Paramedicine.
