Prevention

Prevention techniques are the best way to try to combat contracting COVID and Long COVID, reduce viral load, suffer from severe acute COVID, and not die from COVID. The Long COVID Foundation will put a major focus on promoting prevention and mitigation techniques for school, hospitals, and other public spaces. Our first action will be to reach out to school districts to ask them their COVID protocols and prevention practices in order to ascertain if we can help them do better to protect the kids, teachers, staff, and the family those children go home to.

 

Some of the best prevention techniques are as follows: 


* Air Filtration/UV Light

"Italian study shows ventilation can cut school COVID cases by 82%."

 

"COVID infections were steeply lower in the 316 classrooms that had mechanical ventilation systems, with the reduction in cases more marked according to the strength of the systems. With applications guaranteeing a complete replacement of the air in a classroom 2.4 times in an hour, infections were reduced by 40%. They were lowered by 66.8% with four air replacements per hour and by 82.5% with six air replacements, the study showed."

* Masking

* Nasal sprays such as Enovid

 

"SaNOtize cites studies claiming that by using nitric oxide (NO) and the company’s proprietary NORS (Nitric Oxide Releasing Solution), Enovid can kill 99% of virus particles in two minutes. A 2022 study published in The Lancet found that if you did catch COVID, treatment with Enovid cut the duration of disease by 50% compared with a control group. In another double-blind controlled study, Enovid reduced the viral RNA load in infected COVID patients by more than 95% within 24 hours of treatment."
