The following is from a post on Quora. If you would like to follow my (almost) daily posts and debates, click here.
First off, there is no cause for panic. The media, always on the lookout for sensationalism, has caused far more alarm than warranted. The disease has less morbidity and mortality than other diseases we are threatened by every day. Moreover, it targets primarily the elderly and those already weakened by other health ailments.
All infectious diseases come and go. This one will abate too, but not because of face masks, disinfecting door handles, or a vaccine.
Even the great plagues of the past naturally declined as immunity increased, nutrition improved, and public utilities were developed. (There's something to be said for eating other than moldy bread and living where drinking water did not come from streams where chamber pots were dumped.) Contrary to the popular view, medical measures have little if anything to do with the decline in disease, as this chart demonstrates.
If a coronavirus vaccine is introduced, it will be given credit for the decline that will occur without it. Not to mention the fact that such a vaccine will not be tested for long term safety or effectiveness. Vaccine producers are free to make billions from such vaccines and be protected from any liability by the government.
At the same time, the media (supported by the pharmaceutical industry) is silent about safe and effective natural preventatives and treatments. Research has proven that cheap oral and IV vitamin C can prevent and cure Coronavirus infection. This vitamin not only boosts immunity but has anti-viral effects as well.

One of the reasons the disease will naturally decline during spring and summer is increased sunlight. For those who get out into it, their levels of free vitamin D will increase, provided they don't slather up with sunscreen. Vitamin D is like a master hormone that stimulates virtually every healthful function in the body.
Research reported in the British Medical Journal (2017) affirms this. A meta-analysis from randomized controlled trials containing 11,321 participants demonstrated the effectiveness of oral vitamin D supplements (less effective than sunlight generated Vitamin D—my comment) on acute respiratory infections. There was as much as a 70% increase in protection against such infections. https://www.bmj.com/content/356/bmj.i6583
If you want the best chance of avoiding or reversing disease of any kind, take responsibility for your own health. Eat natural foods, take supplements, drink lots of purified (not bottled) water, exercise, get into the sun as much as possible (short of burning), do creative work you enjoy, pursue truth rather than uncritically believe media hype, and cultivate loving relationships.
Words of Wisdom:
In seeking health we look for an easily identifiable enemy, like a germ—self-discipline does not qualify.
