A broad class of pharmaceutical drugs called "Immunosuppressants" do exactly that - suppress your immune system. Your resilience to fight a viral infection is determined by the health of your immune system. In my last blog I showed how the flu vaccine is only 58% effective this year (reproduced below). Therefore you must rely on your immune system to keep your healthy - or in the case of COVID-19, alive.
Consider taking this short risk assessment for the disease - COVID-19, which includes information on drugs that lower your ability to fight the coronavirus.
Here is a video from Dr. Carter and myself that also provides information on the virus in general and immune suppressing drugs.
The following article indicates that the vaccine for the flu isn't very effective this year. https://www.health.com/condition/cold-flu-sinus/flu-shot-mix-up-not-effective

The biggest takeaway here is that this year's flu shot isn't a great match for the leading virus out there right now: B/Victoria. According to a colleague who just went to a conference in Memphis stated, "the only 3 people in my session who were sick all had the flu shot."
Your key to surviving and thriving is NOT some marginal or untested drug. Your best defense is your natural defensive system. But you need to know how good it is and what you can do to arm it with more and better weapons against virus.
Here is an excerpt from an educational paper that myself and Dr. Mikhail Artamonov wrote for one of the organizations for which he is Chief Medical Officer.
Preventive measures are the same as for rhinovirus infections, which consist of handwashing and the careful disposal of materials infected with nasal secretions. The use of surface disinfectants is also an important issue in infection control, since coronaviruses appear to survive for one or more days after drying on surfaces such as stainless steel, plastic, or cloth . More detailed information on prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), and SARS-CoV is discussed separately.
