It is known that epithelial cell which infected by COVID 19 have a life span of approximately 7 days. Let’s assuming all cells get born at different time then if we start from today then in next 14 days all currently existing epithelial cells in lungs will die and be replaced with new ones. This likely explain why COVID 19 incubation period is about 14 days. The virus need to develop and spread within this 14 days window. If a person get a virus today the virus have to survive on currently living cells within next 14 days and if it does not then the virus mostly die with cells . Can we introduce some hormone or similar which would dictate epithelial cells of lungs to divide and die faster, let’s say every 2-3 days for period of treatment ? This would give a COVID 19 only 4 to 6 days to spread and can drastically decrease of chance of the full blown infection in a patients and works as treatment for COVID 19. Also, the average onset of COVID 19 symptoms is 5-6 days and based on above we can suggest that if the ALL epithelial cell life cycle in lungs will be 4 -6 days ( 2 x 2 = 4) than for this average type of infection it should stop it as the virus will die with dying epithelial cells.April 12, 2020 at 2:50 am #59932AlanGuest
Can we possibly use Human Growth Hormone ( HGH ) here ?September 6, 2020 at 6:25 pm #70155Alan-Guest
Recently heard of proposal to use Zinc as it is expected to slow down virus development. The question how much slow down it will cause ?
