We Can Prevent COVID-19 Deaths in Prisons and for Homeless Now Without Administering COVID Vaccine . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 16 January 2021

Dear Ones,

I write this blog for prison health care officials in the United States, and for agencies that look to the welfare of the homeless in this nation. I offer a timely, cost-effective solution to COVID-19 deaths among these populations, as a stopgap measure until the COVID vaccine can be provided to them.

I see that people in prisons and the homeless are not slated to receive the COVID-19 vaccine until Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan. (1) Yet prisoners and the homeless are at very high risk for COVID-19 deaths (2) (3); of concern on a par with residents of adult care facilities.

In the long run, I feel that this country’s disregard of the urgent need of the downtrodden … the indigent, the homeless, those judged lacking or wrong … will be seen as a great disgrace, a blot upon the escutcheon of our honor as a nation. But in the short run, because our hopes of liberty and justice for all are so bound down by our fears for our own lives and those of our families … so ringed round by notions of danger lurking everywhere … I feel that Americans may see prisoners and the homeless as adding to the notion of the bête noire that prowls through their unsettled dreams.

Government and politicians know that punishment of the downcast will be a sop to the masses, and are bound to act in such a way that the fears of the people are assuaged. Considering the social unrest that growls through the nation, hungry for work, hungry for recreation, hungry to enjoy once more the prosperity of former times, I can hardly hold government and politicians culpable in that regard.

There are other ‘fear factors’ in the news right now. For instance, I see that supply chain shortages are anticipated in the rollout of COVID-19 vaccine distribution. (4)

As well, there are two new strains of COVID that add to the currently very high level of stress most Americans are experiencing …

  • The very infectious strain in Europe, which I feel may have hit California last week, and may be responsible for greatly increased numbers of infection soon, bringing the numbers closer to those Europe has suffered in recent month; (5) and
  • A mutant strain in Brazil, which may render the COVID vaccines somewhat less effective. (6)

These two new strains add to the public onus of COVID-19 concerns, and by my lights, might make it continue to be difficult for the public to place emphasis on the plight of prisoners and the homeless, and their urgent need for the COVID-19 vaccine, who might be viewed in a less felicitous light, for placing a burden on the social system.

I understand the reaction of health care planners nationwide to serve first those whose lives are deemed to be most of value to our communities, and that prisoners and the homeless may not be high on the distribution list for that reason.

Thus I feel there can be no hope of timely COVID vaccine distribution to prisoners and to the homeless. I say this for prison health care officials in the United States, and for agencies that look to the welfare of the homeless in this nation.

Yet there is a timely, low-cost answer to the urgent problem of COVID-19 deaths among prisoners and the homeless. That answer lies in the recent finding of the University of Denver that the ordinary, everyday flu shot prevents severe COVID-19 symptoms …

Link: “Ordinary, Everyday Flu Shot Prevents Severe COVID Symptoms,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 9 January 2021; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-lbl ..

You may not have heard about this startling finding yet, and the reason for that may, I feel, lie with Big Pharma, and the need of COVID vaccine research and development companies to recoup their investments. Big Pharma’s concern for profit is understandable, considering the investments that have been made in rapid vaccine development; but I feel certain that, long-term, those with approved vaccines will see good profits. After all, the need is very great for these products, and will be great for years to come. So I feel.

If severe COVID-19 symptoms are prevented in most cases, for those who receive the everyday, ordinary flu shot, then there will be many fewer deaths. Prison health officials and agencies providing health care for the homeless might turn to administration of the annual flu shot as a means of preventing COVID-19 deaths among those in their care.

Does Buffered Vitamin C Make COVID Symptoms Less Severe? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 9 January 2021

Dear Ones,

When I got what seemed to me to COVID-19 in March 2020, I found that drinking water with buffered Vitamin C powder relieved the COVID symptoms I was experiencing. If you have not yet had COVID, it might be a good idea to have on hand buffered Vitamin C powder, in case that might help relieve your COVID symptoms as well.

Since COVID is a virus, and the flu is a virus as well, it makes sense to me to try over-the-counter flu remedies such as Vitamin C or zinc tablets in case they might help ameliorate COVID symptoms as well.

When I was ill in March 2020, I tried Oscillococcinum and Theraflu as well, but I found both these did not help in my case at all; in fact I felt worse after taking them. From that I gathered, as a working hypothesis, that the simplest flu remedies were the best for me in making my COVID symptoms less devastating.

When a person is that sick, very simple medicines may be the easiest to digest, just as the very simplest clear vegetable broth seemed to be all that I could digest at that time. For more on diet and COVID symptoms see …

Ordinary, Everyday Flu Shot Prevents Severe COVID Symptoms . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

IN THE NEWS: ORDINARY, EVERYDAY FLU SHOT PREVENTS SEVERE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

Here is proof from the University of Denver that getting a standard flu shot causes those who catch COVID to have mild symptoms rather than severe symptoms. The proof came from a brand new, exquisitely crafted antibody test developed partly by a Denver company …

Link: “DU Scientists Develop Breakthrough COVID-19 Antibody Test,” by Mark Koebrich, at 9News, 7 January 2021 … https://www.9news.com/article/life/senior-source/colorado-covid-university-of-denver-covid-test/73-fd032677-b592-462f-953c-555f2cb86789?fbclid=IwAR20Xvm_wHntPOIPYJ55QJF1m5mCwYP5QuuC-jQcR4jmOnHJHrYJsLKSIEI ..

I know it is hard to suss out the facts from the linked-to article because it concentrates, as you say, mainly on the antigen test, which is very good news in and of itself. Apparently, the fact that an ordinary, everyday flu shot prevents serious COVID symptoms was just a serendipitous … but amazing … fact the companies involved gleaned during their data analysis.

On the page cited above (which was dated 7 January 2021) it is bullet number 2 in the video title: “Those with flu shots have mild symptoms.”

How could it possibly be that news that good would be bullet number 1? I had to look at the video three times to believe it. Then I looked at the video in the link, and it explained the same thing. At 01:10 in the video the news spokesperson says “In addition to finding distinct antibody profiles that can indicate whether you will exhibit mild symptoms or severe symptoms, they also found that patients who had a flu vaccine in the past year showed more mild symptoms than those who did not get a flu shot …”

I figure the newscaster must have been talking about the common, everyday flu shot from the pharmacy, because COVID vaccines were not available last year.

From a Google search I see that less than half of adults have been getting the ordinary, everyday flu shot each year. To me, what the means is this:

The people who got no flu shot may be among the ones now getting serious symptoms and at risk of dying during COVID. So if those adults got the regular flu shot, they might have a better chance of surviving  long enough to eventually get the COVID vaccine in late spring or early summer 2021.

Granted, even mild COVID symptoms are no fun whatsoever. But it is better than kicking the bucket, do you not feel?

I have been following LA Times “Tracking the Coronavirus in California” daily statistics on California COVID deaths, and those have been 500 or 600 deaths daily lately. I gather the risk is real for everyone in California right now …

Link: “Tracking the Coronavirus in California,” by Los Angeles Times Staff, updated daily … https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

I wondered if flu shots are available locally now, so I checked online and it looks like I could go to CVS in my local neighborhood and get a shot today, had I not already gotten one in the autumn of 2020. So a temporary, interim remedy is available today.

I searched online for additional newscasts about this startling finding, but could not find any. How could that be, when the news could save the lives of people in our community?

EVERYDAY FLU SHOT MAY DECREASE PATHOGEN LOAD IN THE BODY, ALLOWING IMMUNE SYSTEM TO CONCENTRATE ON FIGHTING COVID-19

This autumn, with the flu season approaching, even though I intuitively felt I had developed pretty strong COVID-19 immunity because of a bout with the new virus in March 2020, I had a concern to keep my COVID immunity strong in the face of the flu season. Intuitively I felt that the standard flu vaccine would help.

Here was my line of reasoning: both COVID-19 and the standard flu are viruses. People tend to get the standard flu in winter, and getting both viruses at the same time might prove quite a test to my immune system. I figured, the fewer pathogens my immune system had to contend with during the flu season, the better off I would be.

Support for Pathogen Load Theory from 1918-1920 Spanish Flu Pandemic

So if the standard flu vaccine succeeded in knocking out the one threat, then my immune system would be able to concentrate on overcoming exposure to COVID, even if there appeared more severe strains of COVID, as was the case with deadly second wave of the devastating Spanish influenza epidemic of World War II …

Link: “Spanish Flu,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu

In fact, a more highly infectious strain of COVID has developed in Europe, and is now spreading to other continents. However, so far it seems the standard COVID vaccine may be equally effective with the new strain of COVID, provided enough vaccine doses can be manufactured to keep up with the increased rate of infection.

If there are not enough COVID vaccine doses during spring of 2021, then at least we can make sure to get the standard flu vaccine, and that may prove helpful.

There is inferential corroboration for this notion in the Wikipedia article on Spanish flu cited above. In that article I note that a vaccine was developed for the Spanish flu on the basis of the notion that Haemophilus influenzae, a bacterium, was the cause of the Spanish flu. That was because the virus itself was too small to be detected under a microscope. The bacterium was large enough to be seen microscopically, and was, in fact, seen in many patients.

Interestingly enough, when people back then were inoculated with the vaccine for the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae, though they still became infected with Spanish flu, less people died of it. I gather the cause of the decreased mortality rate may have to do with lessening of people’s pathogen load, so that their immune systems could concentrate on overcoming the Spanish flu viral infections.

That is the same wholistic or ‘additive’ effect of immune system strengthening that may be behind the Denver company’s finding that getting a standard flu vaccine lessens the severity of COVID symptoms in the people who are contracting COVID during the 2020-2021 flu season.

BE PREPARED FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF COVID-19, JUST IN CASE

I note that the Spanish flu lasted a little over 2 years, with four waves of infection over that length of time, so we may have a little more time to go before things get completely back to normal.

VITAMINS AND DIET MAY HELP MAKE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS MORE MILD

To alleviate the severity of COVID symptoms, I have compiled various vitamin and dietary recommendations …

What It Means That China Ordered 1M Doses of COVID Vaccine . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 January 2021

Dear Ones,

I was interested to read this article …

Link: “Coronavirus: China Set for 100 Million Doses of BioNTech Vaccine Amid Roll-Out of Shots Overseas,” by Simone McCarthy, in South China Morning Post, 16 December 2020 … https://www.scmp.com/news/china/science/article/3114172/coronavirus-china-set-100-million-doses-biontech-vaccine-amid ..

This article sets to rest the urban legend that China developed COVID-19 as a germ warfare technique, and that China had given its citizens an antidote it developed, with intent to overthrow the Western world, If all this had been true, then China would surely not need 100 million doses of the vaccine, do you not agree?

COVID is a difficult health challenge for the world, I know. But looked at in another light, it may have the seeds of blessings for humankind in it as well. For instance, the reality that the whole world is facing the same health challenge together may help the nations of Earth work more harmoniously together both now and in future.

In every storm there is a silver lining, as the old saying goes. In these stormy times, I feel it is good to spot that silver lining, and know that though there may be darkness all around, still good may come of it.

COVID Vaccine Vision: Spectre of Death Walks On . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is a vision I channeled on the day the first COVID vaccine was allowed to be distributed in the United States. There is a very slightly edited Summary after the vision …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I noticed this morning that this is the first day when the COVID vaccine is being distributed in the United States … and so it is a day of hope and joy.

I was on my way to the Post Office. There was a stiff breeze. There had been a breeze all day long. And there at the Post Office, in the usual place, were three … rather than one or two … homeless men. They looked very different from all year long. They looked joyous.

I noticed how, amongst people who have very little, often physical good news … such as that which arrived today … is taken wholeheartedly, and at face value; in such a way that one’s entire being can be informed with joy, whereas those of us whose Awareness is more in the mental realm are not as able to fully appreciate the gift that is ours today.

As I exited the parking lot of the Post Office I noticed those three men again, and I saw a vision of a striding figure, clad in black and with a long, black cloak on … a figure maybe 10 feet tall.

I knew it to be the Spectre of Death. I saw it stride towards the three seated men … and then straight through them, as if they were not there … its cloak flaring out, in the breeze that has been rustling the leaves of the trees in the parking lot.

As it walked on past those men, its cloak closed back down around its own figure.

The Spectre of Death walks on. It walks away, and leaves humankind in its wake. What a wonderful day this is!

Bless you all! Joyous tidings of the new season and the New Year!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

On Re-engineering to Fight New Strains of COVID . by Alice B. Clagett

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

These are thoughts on the resurgence of COVID-19 in Los Angeles in July 2020. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I just climbed to the top of another mountain. While I was at the top I had a notion about what was happening with this resurgence of COVID here in California.

I thought that maybe the northern part of the East Coast, that was so hard hit, may have had a different strain of COVID than the West Coast, which was more mildly hit … and that those of us who were exposed to COVID, asymptomatic or symptomatic COVID, back in March or April, and developed immunity, might have been confronted with the East Coast heavier brand of COVID now, and that we quickly re-engineered so as to be fortified against this new strain … but that the people out here who had not been exposed to COVID priorly, might have picked up the heavier, deeper strain that migrated from the East Coast possibly … the one from New York … and that they might be the ones that are having the higher mortality rate right here in the West Coast now.

That is my thought: We may be dealing with two different strains of COVID. But the good news would be, it seems to me that people here who were exposed to the milder strain are doing very well in re-engineering their immune systems so as to cope with the more difficult strain from New York.

God bless you all. Stay healthy, safe, and calm, happy. Take care, till next we meet.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

CAN THE WRONG DIET CAUSE COVID DEATH? … TWO ASTRAL STORIES

The Wife Who Insisted Her Husband Drink Soup

There is a couple that I have run across for quite some while in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, California. I stop by their store every once in a while for a snack, while traveling to West Los Angeles.

Last month I stopped by their store. On the astral airs I heard that the husband had come down with COVID. His wife, who is strong-willed, forced him to drink some soup. He (who was also strong-willed) finished the soup and died.

I remembered my blog on a diet by means of which I survived COVID in early March 2020 …

Link: “Community Health: Diet to Diminish the Harshness of COVID-Like Symptoms,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 10 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iAS ..

… and wondered if the husband’s life might have been saved had he not acceded to his wife’s demand that he eat the soup.

The Jewish Man Whose Six Relatives Passed on

I filed that astral story away in my memory, but then came across a similar astral story. I went for routine health maintenance to a doctor. Did he ever look sad. On the astral plane, I asked what was the matter. He said six relatives of his … people who were very important in his life … had passed on of COVID.

I thought it likely, from his name, that he might be of the Jewish culture. I remembered some Jewish friends of mine, in years past, who introduced me to their diet, and that this included eating lots of food, for health. Also, I recall red meat … beef … cooked in various ways, and red wine as beloved dietary customs.

I do not know much more about traditional Jewish diet, but I wondered, with some alarm, if Jewish people might be perishing unnecessarily of COVID from being forced by their family members to eat heavy foods, or to drink alcohol.

Could Intravenous Sugar Be Causing COVID Deaths in Hospitals?

I also thought about my body’s very adverse reaction to sugar when I had COVID, and then thought about the COVID patients in United States hospitals. I wondered if they were being administered intravenous glucose while on ventilators? If that were true, then could it be the glucose is causing these patients to pass on?

I guess there are other cultures round the world that know, as do animals, that it is best to fast on water when very ill, and to find a quiet cubby spot … far from the madding crowd … in which to rest and recuperate. I agree with them, as that technique worked very well for me.

COVID SUPERSTITIONS: COVID CARRIERS OR COVID-SAFE SURVIVORS?

On a similar note, I can tell from the astral airs that false rumors and superstitions are riffing round the noosphere with regard to the COVID pandemic. For instance, I often hear on the astral airs these superstitions …

  • That COVID survivors are ‘COVID carriers’ and ought to be shunned; or …
  • That once you get COVID, you can never get over it.

I have done some reading on COVID …

Link: “Some Have Tested Positive for COVID-19 After Recovering. What Does That Mean? There Is No Conclusive Evidence That People Can Become Reinfected with COVID-19. But Researchers Are Following Thousands of Patients to Be Sure,”  by Erika Edwards, 19 May 2020, in NBC News … https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/some-have-tested-positive-covid-19-after-recovering-what-does-n1210361 ..

Link: “Positive COVID-19 Tests After Recovery Can Be a ‘Red Herring’, Expert Says,” by Anuja Vaidya (Twitter), 8 June 2020 … https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/public-health/positive-covid-19-tests-after-recovery-can-be-a-red-herring-expert-says.html … COMMENT: 

From that I gather that the scientific understanding of COVID at present conflicts with these superstitions. Rather, I gather, COVID survivors have been found not to carry living COVID virus inside them after a few weeks, or on the outside, after a month or two.

In addition, the current state of scientific understanding of COVID is that having a bout with the virus, and surviving that bout, provides immunity from the disease in the same way that the COVID vaccine is expected to provide immunity. Surviving COVID is like having been vaccinated with the COVID vaccine. It is another way of becoming ‘COVID-safe’.

Congratulations to those of you who have made it through the illness and come out on the other side, still in physical form! And happy thoughts for all those who … if the news is to be believed … are soon to have the new COVID vaccines available to make them COVID-safe without the discomfort of experiencing the full-fledged disease.

………………..
Sidebar: Could COVID Be a Blessing of Health and Happiness, After All?

On another (perhaps less popular) note: As a Lightworker, I subscribe to the notion that everything that happens here on Earth, happens for the best teaching of Soul wisdom. We who believe Earth is awakening and going through the Ascension process, look to the positive aspects of world events, rather than their negative side.

As to COVID, my own feeling is that many have chosen to leave physical form right now, in this timeline, moving their Soul Awareness to other timelines more propitious to their own Soul learning.

COVID survivors, on the other hand, may find (as have I) that COVID has leant them new physical strength, somehow upgrading and improving their immune systems and their Light-bearing ability.

For those COVID survivors who thought they could not abide the breadth of Light flow of the kundalini energy, it is possible that your post-COVID, buffed up immune system and electromagnetic system may make the kundalini yoga exercises of 3HO (search youtube) a snap and an easy changeup.

The thing I like best about kundalini yoga is that its practice … even an easy set practiced a half hour daily … creates abundance in my life. That is abundance not only of worldly goods, but also abundance of happiness … happiness in the moment, happiness in human relationships, happiness in the joys of the natural world, happiness at work and at play.

………………..

CONCLUSION

Happiest of Thanksgivings to all the world. And a very happy experience with the new, incoming sunspot that appears to be Earth-directed. I feel that may provide us with a blessing of the Creator’s love for the holidays.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

The 2017-2018 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.11 percent, which is 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

The 2018-2019 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.06 percent, which about half as many deaths as in the prior year’s flu season.

Combined deaths from flu, pneumonia and COVID-19 from the when COVID-19 arrived at the beginning of February to the end of October 2020 were 0.11 percent, which is only slightly more than 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

These latter statistics are 3 months short of a year of data. The mortality rate since COVID-19 arrived is running ‘neck in neck’ with the data for the 2017-2018 pre-COVID flu season here in the United States, but about twice that for 2018-2019.

At the end of February 2020 we will have a comparison for a full year of COVID-19 plus influenza-related mortalities.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

From those I derived the mortality rate.

Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California

Imaged on 31 October 2020; published on 1 November 2020; by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here are recent trends in COVID cases and deaths in the United States, as compared to California. For my analysis of these trends, please see the caption below the image …

Image: Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 31 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: For the United States, I note that new COVID cases have greatly increased this autumn (as expected because of the flu season) but that new COVID deaths have plateaued at less than half what they were in the Spring of 2020. That may mean that the COVID virus has become less deadly, as was the case with the Influenza virus after the first few years. It might also mean that those most susceptible to COVID were first hit and passed on because of it. Or both might be true: COVID may be less deadly now, and as well, the most vulnerable sector of the United States population may, in the main, already have passed on. In comparing the California graphs to the United States graphs, I note that new California cases are now down-trending, whereas new United States cases are up-trending. New California deaths rose to a new high in late Summer, but are now steadily declining. Comparatively speaking, both the new Cases and the new Deaths graphs bode well for California … CREDIT: Rough sketch based on New York Times statistics.

How Many Californians Are COVID-Safe? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Image: “Youth Soccer in Small Town USA,” by Derek Jensen, 2005, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Youth-soccer-indiana.jpg … public domain

Written and published on 1 September 2020 by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

How many people here in California are COVID-safe? The figure is changing rapidly, and improving every day.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS ARE COVID-SAFE TODAY?

As of today, there have been 712,276 tested cases of COVID-19 in California, according to the Los Angeles Times. Only those people are being tested who exhibit COVID symptoms.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently holds that many more people … maybe even 40 percent of all the people in the United States who get COVID … are asymptomatic.

If 712,276 people so far are symptomatic and tested, and these are 60% of the people in California who have gotten COVID, then the total number who have had COVID in California would be 712,276 (symptomatic) divided by .6 = 1,187,127 people (symptomatic or asymptomatic).

Of these, 13,018 have died. Thus the total number of people who are now COVID-safe in California is 1,187,127 people who have had COVID, less 13,018 COVID deaths (as of today, according to the Los Angeles Times). That would be about 1,174,109 people … over a million … who are COVID-safe in California as of today.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS WILL BE COVID-SAFE IN TIME?

The population of California is 39.5 million. If deaths from COVID continue at the same rate as before, and the COVID vaccine is not made available, as hoped, this fall, then as the pandemic runs its course, how many California will end up COVID-safe? Here are my figures …

x / 39.5 million people in California = 1,174,109 COVID-safe people in California today / 1,187,127 Californians who have had COVID

x = (1,174,109 / 1,187,127) x 39.5 million

x = 39,066,844 Californians who will be COVID-safe after the pandemic ends.
