IIPI: Intensive Infection Process Intervention
Kinkajou: So that’s it?
Erasmus : You mentioned a 5th option?
Dr Xxxxx : The 5th option is something that is obvious to a doctor. Obvious to people who are doers – not endurers. I call it IIPI: Intensive Infection Process Intervention.
We know a lot about the world. We know a lot about the virus. We have many tools at our disposal. We just need to think about how to use them.
To remind us about an old quote from a movie called “Starship Troopers” – “to kill the bugs, you need to understand the bugs”.
Erasmus : What’s there to know?
Goo: I can see this. You are talking about the human tendency to know the answer, literally before you even know the question. First know your enemy – the coronavirus. And then you can use this information to kill your enemy – the coronavirus.
Erasmus : Let’s follow the usual concept on which we base this site. First know what exists. And then you can plan what may be.
Dr Xxxxx : So I think it is important just to summarise some of the basic information we know about the coronavirus – (CoVid 19 being the current epidemic virus).
Dr AXxxxx : Every monkey brain knows that it is just a virus. To a monkey brain this means you can’t do anything else. I see it every night on the TV. Newly diagnosed victims of the coronavirus are either sent to hospital and perhaps ventilated and intubated, or sent home to see what happens.
Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Speak No Evil.
Typical choices. And these guys – the doctors, dream they are the clever ones.
Goo: I think monkey brains generally feel that know everything. It perhaps becomes useful to be a lowly humble mammal like myself and to have to work things out for myself.
Dr AXxxxx : Yes Goo. I feel too many of these monkeys will never learn anything that they have not been taught. Understanding can lead to wisdom. Knowledge is merely information. Maybe the immunity to the virus will not last.
Erasmus : I don’t think you would ever expect that if you understand how the immune system works. Perhaps you have T cell stimulation which is hard to measure rather than B cell stimulation which can be measured as antibodies. However, every infection leads to immunity. Only a few special circumstances lead to fading immunity. Everything else gets better due to immunity and stays better long term. Vaccines would give the same result, you would expect from understanding how they work. Failure would occur only where the immune system in the long term preferentially amplifies immune responses to different antigens to those in the vaccine or chooses a T cell amplification rather than B cell (antibody) amplification.
Dr Xxxxx : Yes the complaints about immunity focus on the lack of proof of long term immunity – proof of course arising from longitudinal studies.
Goo: But the virus has only been around really for only a few months. We won’t get 10 year data to prove long term immunity till 10 years go by.
Erasmus : Yes but in 10 years, these people will be able to see evidence that such a thing does in fact happen.
Dr AXxxxx : How do these idiots even know they are breathing? There are no longitudinal studies to show that they will continue to breathe in the future either.
Erasmus : An incomprehensible dilemma for many of these medical geniuses.
