    That world a world be argument was the most asinine stupid ignorant example I've ever heard. To start with both worlds had 10% not 1% & 10% 1 person out of 10, and 10 ppl of 100 are both the same percentage.... That's just elementary mathematics... 2 grade shit

    Medical studies, and epidemiological evidence has consistently shown (not in the USofA) that Vit D levels are negatively correlated with Covid severity. At the highest Vit D levels, virtually no deaths. And those with low levels have the highest risk of death. I was high risk when I got it, 73 yrs, 45 lb overweight and with a lung infection:but high Vit D level, 60 ng/ml. Didn't even consider going to ER, though it was worst Flu by far in my whole life. BTW 45 years as a Biomedical Engineer.

    Dr.; "We have some sense of some of the reasons it varies", then doesn't explain any of them, but then gives a crap analogy. World A and World B are not the same. World A has 100% infection, World B has 10% infection. If he wanted to make his point he should have stated both worlds had 1000 people, one world had 100 infected the other had 10; the one world with the 100 had 10 serious cases with one dead while the other had 10 with one dead. In his example World A would have 100% infection rate, 10% dead of infected dead; while World B would have 10% infection rate, 1% of infected dead. End effect on both worlds B: 1000-1=999 people still alive, World A: 10-1=9 people alive. 99.9% and 90%, not quite the same. So I'll take World B and be considered in this Doctor's reasoning, a not a "right" thinking person. And while I get the point he tried to make, he failed at both his analogy and answering Joe's question.

    This guys logic is flawed, he seems to be confusing infection rate and possibility of death when infected. ''world b is the same as world a but 90 people got infected and survived with mild illness" Does that not mean if you get the virus you are less likely to die from it? If you dont get it it has no effect at all. What am I missing here? And no he didn't answer the question! Reminds me of that classic line in Annie Hall, "you can be absolutely brilliant and still have no idea what's going on."

    Let me do the math for all of you: - You have Monsanto secretaries - Most cities have not one single greenhouse - Nobody drinks from the rain or rivers anymore - 90% of the grocery store is sugar, addiction sells - A few midwestern states are devoted to gmo crops - The Amazon rainforest is turning into a factory farm - Tons of people still eat fast food, while wearing masks - Pills kill more people than hardcore illegal drugs, per year - The ingredients of vaccines are on the poison toxic control list - Billionaires who have no medical background, promote vaccines (I would list more, but I'm out of juice.) Ultimately if you read all that & still believe anything " big business " says about health. At this point, your retarded.

    Alot of people also get the rapid test which isnt right. My wife went in for the 2 day results test which was almost 100 percent accurate. And then since she had kids they also decided to give her the rapid test. Well the rapid test came back positive. We thought for sure she had it but then when the other test came back it was negative. My question is are people getting the rapid test only in some cases and goin around saying they only had a slight cough for a day or so but dont really have it? After my wifes rapid test came back positive i was doubting how i was feeling as if i was mentally thinking my slight cough could be covid. Im hopeing that when people get the rapid test that if it comes up positive they should automatically get the more accurate one to make sure like my wife. The rapid test also looks for other viruses to so it looks for the older covid virus. How many of these false cases are being reported as real? Are people just getting the rapid test? And then excepting it and telling people they only had slight symptoms? Spreading false hope? Or false positivity? And like my wife got 3 test in 3 or 4 weeks. I do take the virus seriously tho. Id rather be prepared and wrong than not prepared and dead wrong. We have 5 kids so for that day or so that we waited for the better test she had to take precautions around the house like wearing a mask and it was my twins 1st bday the day she thought she had it so it put a dark cloud over that day. Its messed up.

    Well alternative theory which I'm just saying is that that viruses are a natural part of our biome.They possible are created by the body to help release or repair damage/ toxic cells.That might explain the severity depending on each persons own health.Meaning the more unhealthy you are the worse it may be.They act as solvents.Science can't decide whether they are alive or not as they can't exist outside the body.Bacteria is different which is why antibiotics work on them. It's more complex but worth looking into.

    This virus mutates very, very rapidly, which also makes it difficult to get a vaccine for long term immunity. It is more likely, in my opinion, (although not certain) that an annual vaccine will be manufactured, similar to what we do for the flu (a bunch of people meet up and discuss what they think the virus will look like for the coming season. Sometimes it is effective sometimes it is not, depends on if those people who made the vaccine were correct in what they thought the flu would be for that particular year). As for severity of cases, no one really knows; it may be years before we have a definitive and positive answer for that. Some theories being tested are even based on blood type (although I doubt this is it, that is just to illustrate how desperately people are looking into it, hence it is still a theory). It could be as simple (or much more complicated, again no one knows) as individuals being better to handle the virus and fight it off, or certain hosts not spreading large amounts of the virus meaning that when a small amount is introduced to a new host while the virus reproduces (similar to a phosphorylation cascade), because of a smaller amount of droplets that infected the host, it would be comparable better than having a large amount that would get you ill quicker and give your body less time to catch up and try and make antibodies. This could make sense for people that are spreading the virus while being asymptomatic themselves. Hope that makes sense, and stay safe everyone!! (if you are wondering, I am a student and this is in my area of study. I have even been working on post-infection effects for people that are on the transplant list)

    The so-called "comorbidities" for the most serious covid-19 cases, like obesity, diabetes, heart and kidney disease -- are each and all cultivated by the same condition that also damages our immune response and even makes us prone to autoimmune diseases. That primary condition is inflammatory cell damage, often due to hyperinsulinemia. Over half of all American adults are affected, many of them with no clinical symptoms. These same medical experts who have failed to learn the extent of this -- the real pandemic -- are nearly ready to bless us with a fresh assault on our beleagered immune systems, the various forthcoming vaccines. Usually an oxymoron is composed of two words, but I believe "healthcare" qualifies all by itself . . .

    ANSWER: Vitamin D3. The reason darker skinned people get it worse is because they filter out the sun easier and create a lot less vitamin d in less sunnier places. If you have a high vitamin d diet or are taking D3 the effects of Covid are so much less. 24 people in covid ward 12 where given D3, 12 went home within 1 week. love u all, stay safe. #StrengthAndHonour

    No one knows. I know several people who've had Covid. One friend of mine, a 45 year old man, had just a fever for 3 days. His 16 year old daughter on the other hand was in the ICU with it because it gave her really bad pneumonia. One woman I know had it and had to be hospitalized for dehydration with it, but her husband and kids never even got it. One guy who works with my husband got it and nearly died from it because his lungs collasped. He's 40 and has no health issues. He doesn't drink, smoke, he's not asthmatic, but his blood type is A positive. A doctor at the hospital told him that some blood types are hit harder by it, and people with A positive are one of the hardest hit. Meanwhile his wife only lost her sense of smell and taste and his kids had no symptoms at all. I think its affects and symptoms are all over the place because it was made in a lab. Its not a natural virus or disease. That's why its so strange.
