  • RE: covid 19 vaçcine research and development should not be rushed and implemened

    Developing a vaccine for covid-19
    BMJ 2020; 369 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m1
    Dear Editor
    COVID-19 is about to enter a new stage. After a COVID-19 outbreak is basically controlled in various countries, a large number of asymptomatic people appearing. Vaccines may be the only way to generate immunity to the virus in the entire population. There are more than 90 kinds of virus vaccines at different stages of development, and more vaccines are released every week. [1, 2]
    According to reports, at least six vaccines have been tested in terms of personal safety, which involves providing tens of thousands of people with vaccines or placebos, and observing the daily life between the two groups for months or even years, so check whether the vaccine has safety problems. [3] But in this pandemic, scientists will have to accelerate and simplify this process. Momentum is working on a more aggressive proposal to determine which vaccine is effective: intentionally infected young, healthy volunteers without waiting for trial participants to become naturally infected. Although these "human challenge" studies have been used to study infectious diseases such as malaria and dengue fever, stricter ethical standards still need to be developed to ensure that this method is not abused. [4]
    At the same time, the mortality rate of COVID-19 is extremely low. The latest estimate of the World Health Organization...

  • RE: Project Riva Trigoso: my clinical war against the coronavirus.
    • Sergio Stagnaro, Director, Quantum Biophysical Semeiotic Research Laboratory

    In a recent article (1) I illustrated in detail my clinical war against coronavirus, optimizing immune defenses: Riva Trigoso Project.
    Clinical psychokinetic diagnosis (2, 3), Reconstructing Mitochondrial Quantum Therapy and finally the Quantum Vaccine (4,5) represent the three fundamental aspects of the project, I have just sent to the competent Italian health authorities.
    Previously I have summarized my clinical psychokinetic war against covid-19 ithe following authoritative websites:
