Can't believe people still think that this is the deadly plague the the media hyped up earlier in the year! For goodness sakes, look at the tiny death rate for anyone under 70 on the CDC site. Hardly anything to worry about. Are people seriously scared of contracting COVID if they're reasonably healthy and not above the average life expectancy age? I'm over hearing about it and I go about life as normal. Use some common sense people!
So nearly 300,000 dead Americans is just collateral? Just waiting to see the almost inevitable spike after thanksgiving.
The guy who doesn't wear a mask, doesn't practice social distancing, is surrounded by Covid-positive people and likes to wipe his snot all over his own face?
How could this possibly be?
I know, it's hard to understand, isn't it?
Yes but death occurs all the time and in every flu season, the rates differ depending on the severity of the strain.
According to the CDC's website, 359,000 Americans are estimated to have died of flu in the last 10 years. Covid-19 will easily beat that in one year. Yeah, it's just flu. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/in ... nce%202010
Please note, always remind: I am regular in contact with the main responsible hospitals in Germany, involved in treatment of the serious cases (so university hospitals).
I am also informed regarding some ongoing observational trials regarding long term sequelae of COVID patients. It is to early and results can be expected in years....as we are talking about long term...
It can/has to be feared that for one death there will be one patient in working age
, who regarding sequelae will stay handicapped and not any more able to work (or if, strongly handicapped).
COVID is different to all other known illnesses, ever seen, it is systemically attacking everything/all organs. It ages them, it harms them, it permanently destroys them. Heart, kidneys, lungs, skin, brain, hearing, visual system e.g. It can produces many small infarcts (by agglutinate of neutrophil Granulocytes, like small strokes, embolas, cardiac infarcts e.g.), to small, that they are recognized . But these parts behind the infarcts are destroyed. It is likely, that many, if not even all, who have been a serious COVID 19 case, will not get old. We are not talking about days or month, we are talking about several years or decades, someone will die earlier as regular to be expected.
But this is something, we will see in decades and not now.
