Time for homeopaths to join fight against corona Virus to show that Nosodes works

It’s the time for the homeopaths all over the world to join fight against corona virus and show that the concept of nosode works.
Modern Medicine use vaccines for prevention and they have none for the current corona virus. A “Vaccine” is any substance used in active immunization. “Active immunization” is the inoculation, usually by injection of a special antigen to promote antibody production. These may be dead bacteria (e.g. Typhoid), dead viruses (e.g. Salk polio), live viruses (e.g. Sabin’s polio), or toxoids (e.g. Tetanus or Diphtheria).
Homoeopathy had its own theory regarding vaccination. It never introduces pathogenic microorganisms into the body, so its medicine cannot strictly be called vaccines. The equivalent are Nosodes, which have a prophylactic or preventative effect. They are always taken orally. These Nosodes are prepared by a process of diluting and succession, called potentization, so that there is no trace of the original pathogen remaining.
A nosode (from nosos, the Greek word meaning disease) is a homeopathic preparation made from matter from a sick animal or person. Substances such as respiratory discharges or diseased tissues are used. The preparation, using alcohol, as well as the repeated dilution and succession, essentially renders the substances harmless, while producing a powerful remedy.
Homeopathy is a science where the matter is converted into nonmatter before it is used in the clinical practice.
During the 200-year history of Homoeopathy, this form of medicine has proved to be extraordinarily effective in preventing and curing epidemic disease. Dr Samuel Hahnemann had great success in treating epidemics of scarlet fever. Villages treated with his prophylactics entirely escaped dreaded epidemics, including the Plague.
"The Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy, May 1921, had a long article about the use of homeopathy in the flu epidemic. Dr. T A McCann, from Dayton, Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05%.
This last figure was supported by Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia (Hahnemann College) who collected 26,795 cases of flu treated with homeopathy with the above result. Dr. Herbert A. Roberts from Derby, CT, said that 30 physicians in Connecticut responded to his request for data. They reported 6,602 cases with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%. Dr. Roberts was working as a physician on a troop ship during WWI. He had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe. He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way."---Julian Winston
Nosodes have been used in prophylaxis. Examples would be the use of Influenzinum in flu prophylaxis or Morbillinum in a measles epidemic. Closely related to this would be the use of the sarcode Anas barbare hepatis et cardus extractum (liver and heart of the Barbary duck) for 'flu. Derived from tissues of the native host of influenza, this remedy is prepared from tissue containing and reacting to the influenza virus.
For preparing Nosodes specific perpetrations are used in the prevention of corresponding diseases. e.g. - Morbillinum - Measles, Variolinum - Smallpox, Influenzinum - Influenza, Diphtherinum - Diphtheria
Dr. H.C. Allen notes about the use of Diphtherinum, "The author has used it for twenty-five years as a prophylactic and has never known a second case of diphtheria to occur in a family after it had been administered".
Homeopathic preparations have not been shown to raise antibody levels. Smits tested the titer of antibodies to diphtheria, polio and tetanus in ten children before and one month after giving homeopathic preparations of these three vaccines (DTPol 30K and 200K). He found no rise in antibody levels (Smits, 1995). He speculates that protection afforded by a homeopathic remedy acts on a "deeper" level than that of antibodies.
Homoeopathic remedies reduce the patient's sensitivity to the dynamic stimulus of the virus or bacteria, thus lessening the patient's predisposition to being overcome by this stimulus" (Golden, 1994).
If homeopathic remedies do not produce an increase in antibody levels, then the only way to measure the effectiveness of homeopathic prophylaxis is through clinical results.
In modern medicine a similar concept has been used in making a lung cancer nosode equivalent by repeatedly radiating the lung cancer tissue. I personally has seen many anecdote cases that nosode works.
