Interesting early findings about chloroquine (similar to quinine):

Let's get cracking on making some tonic water, people! Get your Cinchona bark! EDIT: Be careful about the dose of quinine. It can be lethal in overdose. Watch for signs of "cinchonism" including "flushed and sweaty skin, ringing of the ears (tinnitus), blurred vision, impaired hearing, confusion, reversible high-frequency hearing loss, headache, abdominal pain, rashes, drug-induced lichenoid reaction (lichenoid photosensitivity),[1] vertigo, dizziness, dysphoria, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea."

Plenty of cool natural antivirals we can also cook up, as well as simple vitamin C.

Yeah that's why we need cinchona bark! Edit: Be careful of quinine dosage as it can be dangerous. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinchonism

 

This reminds me of that time in Walking Dead when they made a shitload of elderberry tea for a severe flu outbreak.

Yeah shit's pretty fucked up. The govt is apparently preparing another stimulus package. I hope you will be covered. Take comfort from there being a lot of people in the same boat. They can't let everyone be fucked. Please God :'(

 

Can you apply for Newstart so you get the $750 in April?
