This morning I heard a speaker say we are closing in on 200,000 covid deaths.
but what does that mean? It would mean one Covid death for each 1650 Americans. Now also remember that some states do not require
a Covid test to list Covid as the cause of death, only the symptoms. Also remember there are in place financial incentives for Covid deaths.
Also remember that deaths due to heart attacks and other causes have decreased in the past months. The average Covid death has 2.6 other medical conditions.
These are simply my observations on the pandemic.
Close friend was diagnosed positive this past Friday. Says he's been weak and sluggish but otherwise fine. He's 60, a little overweight and takes baby aspirin as a blood thinner. His wife has it as well. She's had the cough in addition to the fatigue.
If their condition worsens I'll update this thread but thus far the hype hasn't matched real life in their case.
Amazing how the intensity of the illness can vary so much. The young man that was in a coma for over a week had a wife and two sons who were also diagnosed with it but had very very minimal symptoms, aches and pains.
