Report: First Brit to Contract Coronavirus Refused Drugs And Beat Infection With 'Hot Whisky And Honey'

Corona-chan can't stop the Englishman.

From The Sun, "First Brit known to catch virus 'beat deadly flu with glass of hot whisky and honey'":

THE first Brit known to have caught the coronavirus has told The Sun how he beat the killer bug with a "glass of hot whisky and honey".

Teacher Connor Reed, 25, was diagnosed with coronavirus by docs in Wuhan two months ago.

He went to hospital after struggling to breathe and could not shake off a bad cough — all classic symptoms.

Shocked Connor was kept in hospital for two weeks.

Connor, originally from Llandudno, North Wales, has lived in China for three years.

He said: "'I was stunned when the doctors told me I was suffering from the virus. I thought I was going to die but I managed to beat it.

"I used the inhaler which helped control the cough and drank a hot whisky with honey until that ran out.

"It's an old fashioned remedy but it seemed to do the trick.

"I did refuse to take the antibiotics the doctors prescribed me because I didn't want to take any medicines."

Though the sample sizes are still very low, there have been a few indicators suggesting coronavirus may affect Asians more strongly due to increased Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 receptors in their lungs.

A study came out on Jan 26 suggesting that was the case.

From the study, "Single-cell RNA expression profiling of ACE2, the putative receptor of Wuhan 2019-nCov":

A comparison between eight individual samples demonstrated that the Asian male one has an extremely large number of ACE2-expressing cells in the lung.

[...] We also noticed that the only Asian donor (male) has a much higher ACE2-expressing cell ratio than white and African American donors (2.50% vs. 0.47% of all cells). This might explain the observation that the new Coronavirus pandemic and previous SARS-Cov pandemic are concentrated in the Asian area.

The only other study I've seen since then was one from Chinese researchers that appeared to involve all Chinese patients which found men may be more likely to catch the virus than women.

The coronavirus also appears to affect old people more than young.


The death rate of coronovirus so far has reportedly been about 2 percent, whereas SARS was 9.6 percent. The Spanish Flu death rate was estimated at anywhere from 10 to 20 percent.

The virus is still spreading like crazy according to Johns Hopkins' tracker despite China's extreme quarantine measures. 



Ignore the chart leveling off at the end, that's just a programming bug which happens every day when they do partial updates, when the official numbers come out from China so far it has always shot right back up.

There's 11 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US.

From CNN:

Health officials Sunday announced three more cases of the coronavirus in California, bringing the state's total to six and the country's total to 11 cases.

Late Sunday, a San Benito County official said a man who had recently traveled back from Wuhan, China, and his wife were confirmed to have the virus and isolating themselves in their home.

The man arrived at San Francisco International Airport on January 24 and was screened and found to be healthy and asymptomatic, Dr. Martin Fenstersheib, interim health officer for the county, said in a news conference.

The next day, the man developed symptoms including a cough and low-grade fever, Fenstersheib said. A few days later, his wife began showing symptoms as well. 

On the positive front, the Chinese managed to complete a hospital in Huoshenshan in just ten days which will have around 1,000 beds.



Thailand claims to have successfully treated two patients with a cocktail of HIV and flu drugs.

"The doctors combined the anti-flu drug oseltamivir with lopinavir and ritonavir, antivirals used to treat HIV, Kriengsak said, adding the ministry was awaiting research results to prove the findings," the South China Morning Post reported Sunday.

If this Brit got better off hot whisky and honey it's possible they just got better on their own.
