Whiz wit or witout: That is the question.

Where is this place, again?
I know you're looking for a Philly cheesesteak, but I need you to go across the bridge into Jersey for this one. Just trust me. Because inside this small, unpretentious bar decorated with boxing photos and various tchotchkes is one of the best cheesesteaks in the whole damn country. It was even blessed by the late, great Anthony Bourdain.
What's the crowd like?
Donkey's is only open between noon and 6:00 p.m. on weekdays, and if you happen to go during the lunch rush (like we did), expect to find the place packed. While there were obviously a few newbies around, lured by the popularity of Donkey's cheesesteaks, most of the customers seemed to be regulars on their lunch breaks.
What should we be drinking?
Despite only being open in the afternoon, Donkey's has a full bar and a short, but well-rounded list of quality drafts. When we dropped in, the tap list included Stone Brewing, Evil Genius Beer Company, and Victory Brewing Company.
Tell us about the food.
Prepare yourself: Donkey's cheesesteaks do not conform to the image you undoubtedly have of the classic sandwich. Instead, the meat (piled high and so incredibly seasoned you could eat a plate of it, unadorned) is packed into a poppyseed Kaiser roll and topped with onions and American cheese. Think this sounds blasphemous? Take a bite and then come talk to us about how a cheesesteak is "supposed" to look.
Was the service decent?
Cheesesteak shops aren't exactly known for their congeniality; but the servers at Donkey's make you feel like a regular, even if it's your first time there. It's like they're single-handedly trying to buck the cheesesteak's intimidating reputation.
At the end of the day, why are we schlepping across the bridge?
We know we're asking you to cross state lines for a sandwich, but Donkey's cheesesteak really is worth the pilgrimage. Call out of work, get in your car, and take everyone you know to get one of the best cheesesteaks around.
Manes: At day 0 of infection and an incubation period of about 5 days. Day 5-12 is the symptomatic period on average. About 80% of people will exit this period with no intervention, no need for oxygen no ER visit. A portion of the 20% that come in ill with COVID-19 here is what they look like as far as characteristics/demographics date of source is 4/4/2020. Report coming from 2249 patients with COVID-19 https://www.icnarc.org/DataServices/Attachments/Download/76a7364b-4b76-ea11-9124-00505601089b So you've got a certain time period between the onset of symptoms until when you need to go to the ICU. The time period between the onset of symptoms and needing to go to the hospital is the golden period of time that you need to act to make a difference. This statement above and below are coming from a front line doctor (pulmonologist). Basically He is saying since this is a novel coronavirus meaning new and there is no randomized placibo control trials for anything, he is trying to communicate some simple remedies to reduce the tsunami of patients coming in. I repeat this is coming from a front line doc not a chiropractor. Hot/Cold therapy treatment can potentially boost immunity with coronavirus. He cites 4 studies below indicate affects the part of the SARS COV2 natural cells and monocytes. Keep in mind there is no studies on this with COVID-19 but he is using the next best scenario studies if you follow. Hot and cold temperature regulation affects part of the innate immune system that helps with targeting viral infections. Hyperthermia and then cooling off actually improved surrogates for the immune system monocytes and their stimulation/ response to foreign invaders.

Every day. Takes 1-2 weeks to get used to it, but it's well worth it. Or hot bath/then cold shower. Consult with your doctor first but here is a instructional video on contrast showers https://vimeo.com/165013134/346f3ef87a Do not go out unless you have to. Leave your shoes at the door. Wash your hands before leaving work and as soon as you get home. Wipe down supplies you buy (milk cartons, water jugs, etc.) with Clorox wipes or alcohol 70% if available. Clean all door handles, light switches, surfaces with antiviral/bacterial cleaners. Don't hug or shake hands. Spray down mail or packages with wipes. You can also use either a plug in air ionizer http://pureairionizer.com or they make a whole room UV light sanitizer on http://uvsterilizex.com they make for surfaces/rooms. UV light is highly effective at killing viruses. The three main types of UV rays are UVA, UVB, and UVC. Because UVC rays have the shortest wavelength, and therefore highest energy, they are capable of killing bacteria and viruses, also called pathogens. Regarding prescriptions if they run out another doctor, Dr. Nicole Apelian has recently come up with alternative herbal remedies along with natural plants to use. She has some great coronavirus tips but please don't discount her as she has a PHD and is a herbalist because an unexpected diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2000 led Nicole to apply her research skills towards her own personal wellness.She was selected on history channel back in 2015 on a survival show called Alone. Her guide is on http://lostremedies.pg-blog.com/ Dr. Nicole Apelian is an herbalist, a mother, a survival skills instructor, an anthropologist, and a biologist. She graduated with a degree in Biology from McGill University in Canada and has her Master’s degree in Ecology from the University of Oregon. She earned her Doctorate through Prescott College while working as an anthropologist and ethnobotanist in Botswana. Here are some additional proactive tips coming from several doctors on coronavirus. If you have a compromised immune system or just want to boost it against this virus here are some proactive measures that can help according to pulmonologist Dr. Seheult. & John Campbell. Make sure you are not Zinc deficient and start a daily dose 10-50 micrograms (400-2000 IU). of Vitamin D, get some daily sun in. Getting more than 50 micrograms reduces the positive effect. Taking this amount reduces respiratory infection by 50%. During the beginning of the H1N1 outbreak many nurses recall docs prescribing Vit D. Also quercetin was mentioned as a supplement.It was used against SARS, Ebola and Zika. Either way consult with a physician before starting any supplement. Quercetin dihydrate provides better bioavailability.
