Combating COVID – Survivor, Homeless, Agency Representative Perspectives

  • COVID recoverer stated he believes water/fluids and fresh air can be antedotes for COVID.
  • Researcher Greshun touts the most significant of her findings is a Nevada shelter whose facility had NO COVID cases in seven months since the pandemic began.
  • Self-identified homeless male-female duo stated they were more concerned about contracting COVID from residing in one of the local shelters, rather than from residing outdoors.

As a researcher, behaviorist among other things, our esteemed Greshun De Bouse is always observing, data-collecting, and compiling valid findings.  Greshun has been quite active in COVID research, and adamant about cause identification as key to COVID eradication. Most recently, Researcher Greshun has communicated with persons from various populations in various parts of the world concerning their views on, and/or personal experience with COVID, and what she learned is fascinating.

First, in a recent interview, based on CDC findings and her own findings of fresh air efficacy in combating COVID at least to some extent, Researcher Greshun stated, “The homeless population comprises perhaps the most advantageous group of individuals who may prevent and/or reduce frequency of COVID contraction-while exercising social distancing of course” because they have the greatest consistent exposure to fresh air.  Greshun says many of the homeless population concur. Here is what Researcher Greshun learned this past week in communication with the homeless population:

This past week has been extraordinary.  First, a self-identified non-homeless COVID recoverer stated he believes water/fluids and fresh air can be antidotes for COVID, considering how his lungs had to be flushed and how he felt like he had a horrible flu.  Fresh air, water, and rest are key to combating and recovery of COVID. This recoverer further stated he believed there is much unnecessary fear spread concerning COVID.. 

In addition, I had the opportunity to communicate with multiple persons who self-identified as homeless with outdoors being their primary residence.  The first Caucasian female who identified as such stated she felt she was at no greater risk for contracting COVID as anyone else. In fact, she concurred with my fresh air findings of how consistent exposure to natural air actually put her in a much better position to combat COVID than those who reside indoors. She concluded by saying she wasn’t worried at all.

The next self-identified homeless male-female duo stated they were more concerned about contracting COVID from residing in one of the Shreveport-Bossier City, LA shelters, rather than from residing outdoors. This is because of the recirculating indoor air which could cause a continuum of COVID spread versus being outdoors in fresh air.  A self-identified homeless somewhat elderly gentleman stated he welcomes the fresh air instead of inside air, and actually contends such fresh air is what is keeping him healthy amid COVID. He stated the shelters still are crowded, and social distancing and such still is not helpful in such a congested environment.

Researcher Greshun touts the most significant of her findings as a Nevada shelter whose facility had NO COVID cases in seven months since the pandemic began.  Greshun says:

I found this absolutely astounding how in such close quarters of dormitory-style living that there were no COVID cases at all during this declared pandemic.  Thus, I was eager to learn what this shelter was doing to obtain such consistent COVID-negative results. The shelter representative cited requirement of COVID testing before entering the shelter program, religiously checking resident belongings to ensure no outside food ever enters the premises, fresh air allowance, temperature checks upon facility entry, and maintaining a strict consistent daily schedule. 

Though mask-wearing was mentioned, it was not emphasized as a chief contributor to the facility’s astounding seven month COVID-free record. The representative with whom I spoke seemed to emphasize the restricting outside food component and allowing fresh air either when residents leave for work, interviews, medical appointments, etc., or when residents may be allowed to have a snack in the designated fresh air sector of the facility.  I don’t know what their secret sauce is, but kudos to them for their outstanding statistics!

This is truly extraordinary to have a zero COVID rate in seven months under shelter conditions.  This just provides hope that the COVID can be defeated rather than feared. Could it be something in the food, or at least in certain foods?  Is it a combination of things? We all want to know so we may follow in the footsteps of this zero-COVID-case facility. We love respected Greshun De Bouse for all she does for us, and we hope to have more on her findings as information becomes available.
