Thieves Oil: Can It Protect Us From Deadly Viruses and Bacteria?

You probably heard or read of bubonic plague or black plague in world history class. It has been considered as one of the most pandemic plague that killed millions of people in Europe. It was estimated to have caused the death of 75 to 200 million people in Europe and Asia and it wiped off  30%- 60% of the population of Europe in  1300.  
The cause of the death plague, bacteria called Yersinia pestis.  
 The story became more interesting when four French thieves who are notorious in robbing the dead or people infected with the plague but they never became infected. They touched the sick and dead people who were highly contagious but they never got sick.  It turned out they doused themselves with a concoction of oils, botanicals and vinegar to protect themselves from being infected. When they were caught, they were promised merciful punishment provided they divulge the ingredients or their secret formula which they did.   


The four thieves during the black plague in Europe used a secret formula which is now known as thieves oil. 
Thieves oil is actually a combination of five essential oils of cinnamon, lemon, clove, rosemary and eucalyptus.

Some Comments Worth Reading:

The confirmed #coronavirusPH arrived Jan 21, and went to Cebu. Sure she didn't have nCov symptoms during entry. Think of how many people she could've interacted with. Multiply that to the # of tourists we allowed entry. And we're confident of our Pinas healthcare system, really?

"Ibig sabihin, January 21 pa lang, paglapag ng PILIPINAS CARRIER na siya ng VIRUS. JANUARY 22-24 KUNG SINO SINO NAKAUSAP O NAKASALAMUHA NIYA SA VISAYAS ay Diyos na lang nakakaalam. January 25, andito na siya sa Manila. Tapos nakaconfine ba o nandyan pa rin pagala-gala kasi wala namang sintomas, walang malalang karamdaman, at wala naman sakit na kailangan magpaospital, ubo-ubo lang? Saan na po siya ngayon, nakaquarantine po ba or nasa labas"

We cant afford to have a breakout in the Philippines. Understaff yung mga hospitals, wala pang high quality facilities. The government underappreciates scientists. A lot would die. Especially the poor

Coronavirus: What we know so far

What is this virus?
The virus has been identified as a new type of coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a large family of pathogens, most of which cause mild respiratory infections such as the common cold. 
But coronaviruses can also be deadly. SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, is caused by a coronavirus and killed hundreds of people in China and Hong Kong in the early 2000s. 
Another medic in hazmat suit is seen checking the medical equipment inside the hospital's intensive care units. Nine people have been killed by the virus since it emerged last month

Can it kill?
Yes. Nine people have so far died after testing positive for the virus
What are the symptoms?
Its symptoms are typically a fever, cough and trouble breathing, but some patients have developed pneumonia, a potentially life-threatening infection that causes inflammation of the small air sacs in the lungs. People carrying the novel coronavirus may only have mild symptoms, such as a sore throat. They may assume they have a common cold and not seek medical attention, experts fear.
How is it detected?
The virus's genetic sequencing was released by scientists in China to the rest of the world to enable other countries to quickly diagnose potential new cases. This helps other countries respond quickly to disease outbreaks. 
To contain the virus, airports are detecting infected people with temperature checks. But as with every virus, it has an incubation period, meaning detection is not always possible because symptoms have not appeared yet. 
How did it start and spread?
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says.
The first cases identified were among people connected to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan.
Cases have since been identified elsewhere which could have been spread through human-to-human transmission.
What are countries doing to prevent the spread?
Countries in Asia have stepped up airport surveillance. They include Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines.
Australia and the US are also screening patients for a high temperature, and today the UK announced it will screen passengers returning from Wuhan.
Is it similar to anything we've ever seen before?
Experts have compared it to the 2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The epidemic started in southern China and killed more than 700 people in mainland China, Hong Kong and elsewhere
The never-before-seen pictures were taken inside the intensive care units of the Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine of the hospital in Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak
