While I love biology, I'm only in 10th grade, so I don't quite understand this stuff. My question today is: how would you cure a deadly virus after the apocalypse? Background info: my story takes place 13 years after a virus, known as The Invasion's Deposit, begins to threaten humanity. There were also EMP waves, so there's little working technology and nothing like internet. The Invasion's Deposit, or TID, is still present and has not been cured, since so much of humanity was wiped out and maintaining the Bunkers stole much energy and time from the survivors. The disease has little to no effect on most other animals. A unsterilized lab is where the Cure is being developed. Out of the nine working on it, one is trained in tactically, and only one is a professional scientist. Every one of these people are infected with TID, and two are close to death. TID causes: sepsis, septic shock, and multiple/total organ failure. IDEA of the ingredients in the Cure: ginger extract, spinach extract, kiwi extract, cabbage juice, cranberry juice, apple juice, echinacea, citrus, kefir (fermented milk), garlic powder, turmeric. My questions: Do these ingredients work? How would a cure be developed? If there can't be a cure, how would the medicine be made? How would I give the cure/medicine its medical name? I know it's based on its chemical properties for medicine, is that the same for cures? How would I figure out the chemical properties? Thanks for reading this whole thing, I tried to make it short while keeping any details that may be relevant.
