Dear friends, Even as we get vaccinated, it is important to continue to take care of ourselves, provide ventilation at home and observe physical distancing, wearing a mask and washing hands. The first four links are from the Philippine Society for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, Inc., or PSMID, the World Health Organization and the Department of Health which I highly recommend that you read first. The rest are recommendations that might not yet be endorsed by these organizations but worth reading.

Philippine Covid-19 Living Recommendations
Philippine COVID-19 Living Recommendations -
With the rapidly evolving science behind the management of COVID-19, the Living CPG development method will be used wherein recommendations will be switched to a living status based on the likelihood of new evidence and the importance of the recommendation in health care policy decision making. LSRs will be maintained to develop a living CPG that will provide up-to-date, evidence-based guidance on the treatment, diagnosis and infection control of COVID-19.

Why supplements might help prevent or treat COVID-19
Based on the science, there is reason to be hopeful that supplements such as vitamin C or D, zinc, or melatonin might help in the fight against COVID-19. While there’s no proof yet that they do, additional research could show a benefit in certain situations, or with a different dose or formulation of the supplement. So it’s worth keeping an open mind.
In the meantime, we should not dismiss the findings of negative studies just because the results weren’t what we’d hoped. When it comes to preventing or treating COVID-19, I’d rely more on the recommendations from the CDC than on unproven supplements.
Check with your doctor before starting a supplement. Ask about dosage, other medications you’re taking, and other health conditions you have. The last thing you want to do is to take a supplement that causes more harm than good.

Positive impact of oral hydroxychloroquine and povidone-iodine throat spray for COVID-19 prophylaxis: An open-label randomized trial
The clinical trial (Seet 2021) used povidone-iodine as povidoneiodine 0.45% (Betadine) from Mundipharma Pte Ltd. Povidone-iodine throat spray was self-administered three times daily (approximately 270 mg/day) for 42 days. The absolute risk reduction with povidone-iodine throat spray was 24% (7–39%) compared to Vit C 500 mg/day.
Why vaccinate?
“Some are saying getting the #COVIDvaccine is against their freedom… So freedom is getting #COVID disease? Being on a #ventilator? Dealing with #LongCovid? Dying from COVID? That’s freedom?!? Oh and by the way, no one’s freedom provides the right to harm or kill” others.
