I am very sad that our leaders in medicine and government are depriving the public of potentially helpful information. You just hear about washing your hands and cleaning objects, but the Chinese Coronavirus spreads very well through the air!
The corrupt officials in government and mainstream medicine don't even recommend a healthy diet! Yet you have this report of scurvy--vitamin C deficiency--on the rise and other deficiencies in the UK.
No one is saying any of the following is a "cure." Nor is anyone suggesting that sick people avoid medical professionals! However it is likely medical resources will be in short supply in some communities. Doesn't it make good sense to try to strengthen people in the hope that fewer people will need intensive medical care?
There are plenty of resources available from respectable organizations for those who don't want to limit themselves to just washing hands and sanitizing surfaces.
An association of integrative doctors called, Orthomolecular medicine. Some of the articles were written by one of their spokesmen, Andrew Saul, who was a university professor with a PhD in biology or similar.
"We can all agree that 50 tons of vitamin C pretty much qualifies as a megadose. We can also likely agree that trucking 50 tons of vitamin C, straight into Wuhan, full in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic, qualifies as news. https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/tons-vitamin-c-wuhan
"doctors decided not to treat the virus because she didn’t exhibit symptoms. She had no cough, no fever, and no obvious problems breathing. Within two weeks, tests showed that the baby girl had recovered fully "
"Another recent study used this same low 200 mg dose for infants and children under five years of age, with severe pneumonia. The authors concluded that "Vitamin C is effective in reducing duration of severe pneumonia in children less than five years of age. Oxygen saturation was improved in less than one day."

"Conventional medical doctors are not taught about the mechanisms of action and benefits of vitamin C in medical school.
"Today, more and more publications in peer-reviewed literature are are available. They show the necessity and benefit of ascorbate to the immune cells called macrophages and neutrophils. Without vitamin C, the immune system is paralyzed and unable to regenerate the ability to dissolve disease-causing elements in the body.
"The LD50 is a convention used to represent the lethal dose of substance for 50% of a tested population. The LD50 for ascorbate [vitamin C] is 11,900 mg/kg, for table salt 3000, acetaminophen 1944, aspirin, 200, caffeine 192 mg/kg. Think about that for a bit. Nobody would think twice before using aggressive caffeine therapy
"The ascorbate will not kill the bacteria, but it will mobilize the neutrophils and phagocytes (the immune cells that process the infection), which grind to a halt without it, because ascorbate is their fuel,.
"White blood cells need NADPH to create superoxide and other reactive oxygen species that oxidize and destroy pathogens (13). Vitamin C not only helps produce NADPH but also regulates quantities so the white blood cell does not create too much oxidative stress in its attempt to protect the body."

Information on Vitamin D and a related immune system stimulant, GcMAF (Vitamin D binding protein macrophage activating factor)
"The Vitamin D Binding Protein (GcMAF) is a multi-functional plasma protein, made in the liver, with many important functions. The most well known one, and the reason for its name, is the transport of vitamin D metabolites. ...Activating macrophages and actin removal are considered to be other very important roles of VDBP....In order for the VDBP to activate macrophages (thus for the GcMAF to work properly) it needs adequate amounts of vitamin D3 in the blood. https://immuneactivator.wordpress.com/2015/11/06/supplementing-vitamin-d3/
