Masami's answers to questions not addressed during the call:
Q: If you had COVID-19 once, can you get it again?
A: The information is changing rapidly, so I can’t say "yes" or "no." As of right now, the answer is "maybe." We all need to be checking the CDC, WHO, and other reputable health sites to get updated answers to this question.
Q: The CDC recommends taking your temperature once in the morning and once in the afternoon. How much of a difference do you usually find in the course of a day?
A: Follow the guidelines of CDC. It's normal for body temperature to fluctuate by about 0.9 F throughout the day. What CDC is asking us to do is to make sure we are not running a fever. If your temperature is over 99.5 F, then you need to pay attention, because you might be running a fever.
Q: How are you putting these things up your nose?
A: I use the netipot. I open supplement capsules and mix them in. I make my own saline solution and mix in liquid zinc, liquid iodine, sometimes a drop of essential oil and sometimes a capsule of probiotic and then use this as a nasal rinse.
