  1. He is missng something when he chalks the illness up to being like a flu where you stay home with chicken siup and fever reducers. An unknown factor or factors–there is some research I saw last month about an individual’s interleukin pro- and anti-inflammaory markers as being significant–pushes the ordinary flu into a life threatening illness with blood clots that interfere with lung functioning. In addition, the virus disrupts the normal feedback that individuals have when breathless. So you can have an otherwise healthy 35-year old man walk into the ER with 72%O2 who is on the verge of organ failure. These are two illnesses, one benign, one horrendous. The media plays the awful one out, but ignores the mundane one. The Doctor needs to address both. In any event, chicken pox and polio get different outcomes, too, so this is not unique to COVID. We take for granted that we rarely see the severe forms, thanks to vaccines.

    • You’re arguing against “all or nothing”. Trivial or deadly. I am too, but we can’t be heard in the politicized cacophony. Caca stacked statistics, caca experts.

      This isn’t a professional medical forum. The real world – where our family-&-friends are making medical decisions all the time – that’s different. Outside that narrow context, no one’s listening to medical anything anymore.

      But VTB happens to be dead center on what counts: What’s defined this particular virus is politics, not science or medicine.

      Political weaponization has been far more devastating than the unnatural offspring of a horseshoe bat and a pangolin. The PRC’s BSL-4 was necessary but not sufficient. Not by a long shot.

      And that’s what’s interesting.

      Pronoun usage, sexual preferences, race, victim-parsing hierarchies are all political power plays. Wuhan coronavirus is another: It just happens to be the mother of all monster levers.

      The issue (CoV-19) is no longer the issue.
      We are reminded once again that for our enemy, the issue is never the issue.
