The information on this blog is primarily about using HA! for animals. However the same scientific data that is used here for animals can be applied to people.This is the essence of One Health (OH) as described in the prior blog.
For example, did you know that there’s nothing “special” about this virus? As with the coronavirus that causes Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), the virus does not cause serious illness. OH information “translated” from other sciences describes it thoroughly.
The major difference in the current pandemic is that MDs are not used to treating such a widespread and potentially fatal virus. However, veterinarians deal with serious viruses like parvo, distemper and rabies almost every day.
For example, there is currently a rabbit virus, which is not a coronavirus, that can kill up to 80% of exposed bunnies. This is a scary situation for people who raise rabbits and fortunately, the mortality of SARS-CoV-2 is less than 3%.
However, SARS-CoV-2 does not have this same effect. It does not cause Covid-19 in most people. The disease results from an inappropriate immune response from an imbalance in the body. The result can be pneumonia, cytokine storm and respiratory failure.
Covid is very similar to FIP. Most people and pets that are exposed to these coronaviruses do not even get sick. This has been studied intensively for many decades by veterinary scientists such as Dr. Niels Pedersen at UC Davis in CA.
Scientists can learn from Dr. Pedersen who has been curing FIP with a remdesevir-like antiviral for many years.
This is a critical time in history and we can use OH-based science to improve the outcome and to decrease our fear of the unknown.
