Guys, do folks who forgo umbrellas and get wet melt away? Or, is it that, assuming that non-umbrella users get soaked from the rain, some may get a cold while others simply dry off and keep going the next day with a pep in their step (no rain-soaked effects)?

Or, is it that those who choose umbrellas have a permanent pep in their step, no let up, even on no-rain days?

What rain/umbrella lesson is there for vaxxers and anti-vaxxers?

A simple solution, really: to each his/her own!

I hope they banned the unvaccinated minors' anti-social parents too.

No need for concern. Lots of vitamin C and plenty of chicken broth will take care of those measles. ?

I trust that was humour?

While vit C is in there, and yes Chicken Broth does actually help with many illnesses.
------------------------------

Since measles is caused by a virus, there is no specific treatment for it, but the symptoms usually improve within seven to 10 days.1 While the measles virus runs its course, supportive care, good nutrition and adequate fluid intake are essential in boosting your immunity to help fight the virus and enhance recovery.
Alleviating the Common Symptoms of Measles

Measles treatment aims to ease your symptoms and reduce risk of complications.2 If you get infected with the measles virus, make sure to incorporate these lifestyle recommendations to lessen discomfort, help get well faster and prevent complications:

• Stay home and get extra rest — Almost everyone who catches measles will require plenty of rest. Isolating yourself or the person infected with measles will also prevent spreading the virus to others, particularly those who are more vulnerable to the infection, such as infants, young children and pregnant women.3

• Rest your eyes — While you rest in a well-ventilated room, make sure to keep away from direct light as your eyes can get very sensitive. Keep the lights low and avoid watching too much TV, using gadgets or reading to prevent further eye irritation and fatigue.4

• Seek respiratory relief — As the initial symptoms of measles resemble the flu, including fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough and sore throat,5 using a cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer can help relax your airways, relieving cough and sore throat.6

• Drink plenty of fluids — Sip water and herbal tea at regular intervals during the day to replenish fluids lost from sweating and fever. Apart from reducing your risk of dehydration, drinking fresh and organic citrus juices such as orange and lemon juice can help boost your immunity with their vitamin C content.7

Another healthy choice is coconut water, which is rich in nutrients that help rehydrate and cleanse your body of toxic elements. It is also rich in antioxidants that can help facilitate speedy recovery from the infection.8
These Natural Remedies May Also Help Fight Measles

Natural treatments like herbs and supplements can help fight the measles virus and may help you recover from the disease faster. Below are some options you can try:

• Barley — It is packed with vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants, and aids in speeding up the healing process as it is also rich in zinc. Infuse a few tablespoons of barley in water and then drink it twice or thrice a day, in two- to three-hour intervals.9,10

• Licorice root — Licorice has antiviral properties that may work against measles, as well as other viruses like herpes.11,12 You may drink powdered licorice root mixed it with a little honey to relieve cough. Be aware, though, that licorice root can be dangerous if taken in excess and cause symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, high blood pressure and even heart attacks. Please check with your health professional before using this on a regular basis.

• Turmeric — With its antiseptic and antioxidant properties, this herb is effective in helping to alleviate the symptoms of measles. Drinking turmeric powder mixed with milk twice or thrice per day can help improve your immunity.13,14

• Vitamin A — In developing countries there is a direct link between measles and vitamin A deficiency that can result in severe complications like eye problems or even vision loss.15 Measles is to blame for an estimated 15,000 to 60,000 cases of blindness in children living in low-income countries per year.

To help combat visual loss related to measles, vitamin A supplements are often given to infected people, most especially children. This treatment has been shown to reduce the measles fatality rate by half.16 The World Health Organization recommends administration of an oral dose of 200,000 international units (100,000 international units for infants) of vitamin A per day for two days to children with measles in areas where vitamin A deficiency is prevalent.17

• Vitamin C — Studies have shown that vitamin C delivered in megadoses before and after cold and flu symptoms relieves and prevents respiratory discomfort and symptoms.18

You can make a full recovery from measles through these lifestyle changes and natural remedies. Just remember to keep an eye out for any signs of complications, including drowsiness, dehydration, breathing difficulties or convulsion.19 If any of these symptoms occur, consult your physician immediately.

I trust that is so the vaccinated with live virus culture do not infect the unvaccinated ones.   The vaccinated ones obviously are 100% safe... or maybe not?

Vaccination of public officials especially Doctors Nurses etc is COMPULSORY. Libertarians should be up in arms about it, but they seem to like the Nanny State. Maybe because it fits with their view?  Otherwise they might be screaming Government over reach.

Here in Ontario, health professionals that work in a hospital can elect not to get the flu shot but then are therefore required to wear a mask in the work place. In other words, they are forced to get a flu shot if they wish to feel comfortable through out their work day.
The problem with the flu shot is that it designed on a chance that it might be the correct concoction to fend off the latest strain of flu virus.
Is there enough mercury in the dose? Are there enough fermaldihydes in the dosage?
All careful considerations when big pharma is stirring up a special brew for us.
