ROAD MAP TO USING THE GUIDE
Understand the illness, and who is at risk. COVID is a mild illness for healthy people under age 50. COVID can be unpredictable and dangerous only for a very small population – particularly those over 50 who have serious comorbidities. Go to FACT SHEET 1.
Before you decide to take an experimental genetic “Covid shots,” our expert physicians and scientists suggest you read our Patient Guide FACT SHEETS 1-4 to make an informed decision. For updates on “the COVID shot,” go to FACT SHEET 5.
If you are healthy and younger than age 50, without medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, lung or kidney disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, we suggest focus on GENERAL PREVENTION STRATEGIES. Go to FACT SHEET 2.
Before getting sick, read about COVID EARLY HOME-BASED TREATMENT options to help reduce your risk of going to hospital. At the first onset of any COVID symptoms, go to FACT SHEET 2 for symptoms and immediate home care steps.
Then go to FACT SHEET 3 assess your immediate options to start treatment at home. If your doctor does not treat COVID, contact a TeleMedicine service in APPENDIX.
If you are at high risk for COVID based on your age, medical conditions, or occupation, we suggest COVID-SPECIFIC PREVENTION options. Go to FACT SHEET 4.
