Covid-19: The Random Death Sentence


Covid-19 is a random death sentence. Approximately 20 percent of people who develop symptoms will require medical care, with between 5 and 10 percent of people requiring intensive care.

But the real question is "recovery"? What does recovery from Covid-19 look like?

Increasingly, it is becoming apparent that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, infiltrates many organs in the body SILENTLY causing potentially life-threatening damage, even among asymptomatic individuals.

In late January some whistleblowers described Covid-19 as akin to "airborne aids." Covid-19 doesn't replicate like HIV but it may down-regulate T cells effectively enough to avoid detection in colonized cells.

One of the most concerning impacts of Covid-19 is lasting heart damage. Athletes may be at risk for sudden cardiac events:

Charean Williams (2020, August 10). Report: Heart condition possibly linked to COVID fueling Power 5 concerns. ProFootball Talk on NBC Sports. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/report-heart-condition-possibly-linked-222452145.html

The Big Ten announced a conference-only schedule last week. Only a few days later came word the conference was moving toward a cancellation of football for 2020.
 
So what changed?
 
ESPN reports that doctors have diagnosed at least five Big Ten athletes — as well as athletes in other conferences — with a rare heart condition that could have a link to COVID-19.
 
Myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle, is usually caused by a viral infection. Left undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause heart damage and cardiac arrest. 

Covid-19 is a random death sentence. We must adopt a precautionary approach in our institutions - especially our schools and universities - or many hapless people will die after winning the covid-19 lottery.

Abstract: COVID-19 is a systemic infection with a significant impact on the hematopoietic system and hemostasis.

Lymphopenia may be considered as a cardinal laboratory finding, with prognostic potential. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio and peak platelet/lymphocyte ratio may also have prognostic value in determining severe cases.

During the disease course, longitudinal evaluation of lymphocyte count dynamics and inflammatory indices, including LDH, CRP and IL-6 may help to identify cases with dismal prognosis and prompt intervention in order to improve outcomes. Biomarkers, such high serum procalcitonin and ferritin have also emerged as poor prognostic factors. Furthermore, blood hypercoagulability is common among hospitalized COVID-19 patients.... 
So, COVID-19 infected patients, whether hospitalized or ambulatory, are at high risk for venous thromboembolism, and an early and prolonged pharmacological thromboprophylaxis with low molecular weight heparin is highly recommended. Last but not least, the need for assuring blood donations during the pandemic is also highlighted.

  1. There are few places on the internet or in medical journals, where one can find this quality and depth of information about covid19. How ironic, post Fukushima.
    "At risk for sudden cardiac events," after covid infection.
    There is also increased risk of heart damage from Cesium 137. Cesium 137 in so many places, from things like Fukushima. Cesium 137 causes cardiac damage, with trace amount exposure

    2. Covid19 is a bioengineered virus. It is created and used jointly, by the billionaire elites of the USA, China, Russia, and Europe to create economic chaos that benefits them.

  2. Of course one could resort to hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin in the early stage. But that would require a certain amount of independence.

  4. Here we are again. Despite so many Democrats in academia with so many books and bespectacled intellectuals, the issue of natural born citizen vs citizen is still unresolved. Now to those of us not unfamiliar with various books natural born citizen has always meant a persons born of citizen parents in the USA.

    Obama lacked this qualification but was black, so the qualification was waved I guess. He may have had one citizen parent and been born in the USA, but his whole natal story is obscure.

    Kamala Harris at least was born in the USA-- to two non-citizens. So she is a citizen, an anchor baby. But not a natural born citizen. Shall we wave away that requirement again since she is a woman?

    Anyone who brings the subject up is a sexist, racist pig no doubt. Today's essay question: why have such an outlandish requirement?

  6. I told the vaccine nurse about my hypothesis of when a virus hits 10% to 20% of the population that an important event can occur.

    Traditional "herd immunity" espouses that 60% to 80% of the "herd" needs immunity before you get herd immunity. But then why do corona viruses just "go away" when population wide exposure never gets above 20%.

    The collective unconscious programs the production of the needed T-cells. She was unfamiliar with Carl Jung, who I brought up as a good source of the pyschology aspect. But I could tell she really like and was interested in the concept and she said she would research it.

    I mentioned that she wouldn't find much, since I just recently came up with the hypothesis, but to read some Jung.

  8. Sweden has a higher COVID death rate (574 per MM) than the US (530 per MM), which is really saying something...

    Quit saying Sweden's no-lockdown strategy worked. It did not. They have double Norway's population but 20 times more COVID deaths. Norway's economy also fared better. In fact, all other Nordic economies were better off than Sweden in the 2nd quarter. https://businessinsider.com/coronavirus-sweden-gdp-falls-8pc-in-q2-worse-nordic-neighbors-2020-8
