Iodine Solution Can Completely Inactivate Covid-19: Study

Spread the Word

A recent study carried out by the researchers from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine suggested that iodine solution may help in preventing the spread of novel coronavirus, as per the study published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

For the study, the researchers observed the reaction of the virus in three different iodine concentrations — 0.5 per cent, 1.25 per cent, and 2.5 per cent.

Researchers found that all three concentrations, including the weakest 0.5, can completely inactivate the virus.

The solutions inactivated the virus within 15 seconds. The same test was conducted with ethanol alcohol, but it did not show any promising results.

An earlier study cited in the Times Now report also found that the iodine solution is remedial against other similar infections, including SARS and MERS.

Researchers maintained in their study that these solutions can be used in the form of nasal disinfectants and can be induced in patients before intranasal procedures. This could help reduce the risk of viral spread through droplets and aerosols.

Researchers further mentioned that medical professionals could instruct patients to use the solution before their appointments. This will help prevent the spread of the virus in waiting rooms and common areas of the hospitals/clinics.

Researchers also added that this method could reduce the risk of coronavirus positive patients developing critical symptoms of the virus. It can help decrease the viral load that travels to the lungs.

The authors wrote: “Povidone-iodine nasal irrigation may be beneficial for the population at large as an adjunct to mask usage as a means of virus mitigation.”

However, researchers also warned the public to not try this at home. They concluded that the nasal wash is best done under the supervision of a clinician only.

“Why the ongoing mass vaccination experiment drives a rapid evolutionary response of SARS-CoV-2

Critical opinion article:

The naked scientific truth on why the ongoing mass vaccination experiment drives a rapid evolutionary response of SARS-CoV-2 ”

“BREAKING! Washington University Study Shows That SARS-CoV-2 Is Alarmingly Evolving To Find New Ways Besides ACE2 To Infect Human Host Cells Using 484 Mutations!
Source: Coronavirus News Jun 25, 2021 14 hours ago
Coronavirus News: More good news as Scientists from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have now discovered that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is evolving even faster and is now developing its own strategies to infect human host cells no longer through the ACE2 receptors but by other receptors and means! It is doing so by causing a variety of mutations involving amino acid bases at position 484 of the spike protein.”

“Initially in the COVID-19 outbreak, researchers identified how SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus gets inside cells to cause infection. All current COVID-19 vaccines and antibody-based therapeutics were designed to disrupt this route into cells, which requires a receptor called ACE2.

Alarmingly the study team has now found that a single mutation gives SARS-CoV-2 the ability to enter cells through another route ie one that does not require ACE2.

Importantly, the ability to use an alternative entry pathway opens up the possibility of evading COVID-19 antibodies or vaccines.

Most significantly the study findings indicate that the virus can chan ge in unexpected ways and find new ways to cause infection.”

Those responsible for releasing this virus (& many others to follow) have not yet been charged with crimes against humanity, nor will they be. Instead they will use the disaster to force their bioweapon experiments on the unsuspecting & make it impossible for medical workers to resist. With compromised governments & armed forces this is a castastrophic situation way beyond citizens control. As St. Peter said to Christ – To whom shall we go Lord.

We also should have the ones who developed this Covid Vaccine should also be changed with Crimes against Humanity
