The focus of the COVID 19 epidemic must be fighting chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Most hospitalizations and deaths occur among populations with one or more chronic diseases. While hygiene and social distancing may be important, the true cause of why America is heading to first place in complications from CV 19 is due to the lack of attention to the root cause of the epidemic - poor diet and lifestyle. Conventional medicine is looking for the specific anti-viral treatment or vaccine to end the epidemic. The way you end it is by making the American people aware of the dangers of obesity, diabetes, etc. and how diet and lifestyle can reverse chronic disease.
