2 What’s the best course of action when you have a fever below 104 degrees F?
- Avoid fever-reducing medication; get plenty of bedrest, drink lots of fluids and “sweat it out”
A number of studies have come to the conclusion that treating fever can prolong and exacerbate illness. A better alternative — provided your temperature does not get dangerously high — is to get plenty of bedrest, drink lots of fluids and simply “sweat it out.” Learn more.

3 Which of the following countries has deployed 5G-equipped robots that measure people’s body temperature to identify sick individuals in large crowds?
- United States
In China, monitoring and tracking of individuals includes the deployment of 5G-equipped robots that measure people’s body temperature. Anyone with a body temperature above 37.3 degrees Celsius (99.14 F) is suspected of being sick. Learn more.
4 Which of the following inhibits activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes — implicated in acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute lung injury, both of which are potential outcomes of COVID-19 infection — thus offering potential protection against infection?
- Coenzyme Q10
The inflammasome NLRP3 is a key culprit in acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute lung injury, both of which are potential outcomes of COVID-19 infection. Melatonin inhibits the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes, thus offering potential protection against infection. Learn more.

7 Which of the following therapies has the ability to kill lipid-coated viruses such as COVID-19, and may in fact be an ideal antiviral?
- Blue light therapy
- Ozone therapy
The coronavirus is a lipid-coated virus and rich in cysteine amino acid residues; if you disrupt that lipid coat or oxidize the vulnerable cysteine, you reduce or eliminate its infectivity. Ozone attacks lipids and key amino acids, and viruses cannot repair that damage. Thus, ozone may effectively destroy the virus. According to ozone therapy expert Dr. Robert Rowen, ozone may in fact be an ideal antiviral. Learn more.
- Magnesium-enriched water
- Molecular hydrogen
