those of you who rely on herbs for immune support: echinacea and elderberry are specifically contraindicated for covid-19 because they contribute to cytokine activity and thus lung damage

@_ I always feel obliged to chip in on Echinacea, so please forgive me: it's an effective painkiller, but it has no immune supportive activity. Apparently this misconception can ve traced back to some confused European who misunderstood the North Americans who introduced it to him. Traditional use was supportive for colds/sickness, but was not thought to be a cure.
