What speculation? My topic is 4 days old and I have not seen yet any report from any beekeeper that hes`got covid-19.

It`s not fake. It`s solid fact...so far ;^)
Honey`s oxygen peroxide works nice, soft and fine methink :^) Plus it`s essential oils, enzimes, vitamins, and a whole lot of good staff in it, scientifically detected and approved :^)
They are incapable of replying when in a ventilator - or a coffin.

Ok, Dani was right in that you are attributing the honey to preventing the disease. The report Richard Elder was referring to seems to make suggestions about beekeepers' immune systems (being altered by the sting venom-not from eating honey) being somehow involved. Don't forget, not all beekeepers eat honey....take R.O.B. Manley for instance.

Sadly, an elderly couple who were keen bee keepers for many years died of Covid-19 in Southampton https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-52472481
And at least one middle aged member of our association was seriously ill with it earlier in the year but is fortunately now out of danger. So yes, bee keepers are susceptible to Covid-19.
