How to slow down the Coronavirus without depleting the human body of Oxygen and the energy it needs? [I am not a medical expert in the science of biology and disease]. Science uses a standard procedure to kill cancer cells with Chemotherapy, a mustard gas used for war in the early history of nations. Chemotherapy is used among patients with cancers and weakens the body's immune system, including children. Why not temporarily deprive the human body of iron with medical procedures to supply oxygen and alternative energy sources of foods. Can it be possible that the medical establishment can provide the necessary medical supplements to halt the iron use in the human body with an alternative before the patient is drawn to a worse condition of deterioration? I suspect it is possible in the cases with the Coronavirus, Cancers and other diseases.
