A top German doctor recommends whiskey to protect against COVID-19
While the World Health Organization vehemently disagrees, Dr. Juergen Rissland, a lead doctor at the Institute for Virology at Saarland University Hospital in Germany, went on the record to say: drinking whiskey can protect against COVID-19.
And that is definitely one report we can all get behind.
Virologist Jurgen Rissland, who says alcohol can protect against COVID-19.
While appearing on "The Morning Show," Dr. Rissland was asked about whether or not drinking alcohol could kill any viruses a person may have ingested. "Yes, of course, that's true," Dr. Rissland responded. "And the higher the percentage of alcohol, the better it is. For example, if you are a whisky lover, then that certainly isn't a bad idea," he continued, while offering this bit of sage advice to pace yourself: "But of course you need to bear in mind that you can't do that every 15 minutes, that is something else to consider."
After being prodded a little further by the show's cohosts who asked him if he was really suggesting folks drink high-proof alcohol, Dr. Rissland didn't back down or attempt to clarify his remarks. Instead, he added, ""I would say it can't do any harm although we need to remember that it's not a guaranteed cure for the problem."
So there you have it at least from the Germans: Prost!

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.” Aldous Huxley
Being of course not any member of any medical profession, what ever the good Dr. Rissland professes my self would never have the audacity to challenge. A very long time past though, from a French fellow, I was to ask why to drink wine, his answer was that was the French way and with this, some times on a rare occasion, the food might not be so good. So, the alcohol in the wine would then make harmless what ever might be lurking in the food..
But of course, leave it to a French man to justify drinking wine..
