Corona Virus Disease/(SARS-CoV-2) II

My grandson, 19 years old, barely knew he had the virus. The only reason he is pretty sure he got it is losing smell and taste and feeling somewhat bad for 3 days. This was a few weeks after going to college. My limited understanding of Covid is that losing smell and taste is a good sign you have it. He said it was prevalent at college for a few weeks after opening and was pretty much gone now. My best friend, 70 years old and in good health, died a few days after getting the virus. Old cars die more often then newer cars. Too many parts with too many miles on them. Seniors need to be extremely careful. 

Autopsies have been done on the covid19 dead. What has been found is vascular damage at the capillary level, microbleeds. These have been found in most organ systems and has been associated with the sensory losses of taste and smell. Survivors have been studied and internal damages/scars have been identified.

 

Older people die because they essentially have used up their bodies. If during their lives they abused their bodies they tend to die sooner. Smokers die sooner. Alcoholics die sooner. Diabetics, drug addicts, etc and so on........  all expire sooner because those conditions imperil/impact healthy aging. 
 

Now medical science is uncertain exactly how covid19 survivors will be impacted in the long term from their infections. My message is that if you take good care of your ‘young car’ it will last a lot longer than if you do not. So I somewhat disagree with the statement that “seniors need to be extremely careful.” EVERYONE needs to be extremely careful. Everyone needs to deploy every measure that is known to halt the spread of covid19. Everyone should fear covid19 as if they were 80 years old.

These changes have also been found in the retinal microvasculature.  It is important to have a comprehensive eye exam post recovery, especially if there are known retinal vascular issues.

So here’s the reality. We have watched covid19 rampage through countries and our own cities. Right now it is burying the healthcare systems in Southern California. I know those places personally. It is terrifying and incomprehensible to understand what is happening. Now is the time to knuckle down and hammer the message to everyone. Already we have covid mutations evolving. One wrong mutation and this starts all over again. One new strain of covid19 and all previous immunities to the ‘old’ covid19 can be wiped out and the new vaccines rendered useless. Everyone who had covid19 can get it again....  and it could be insanely more virulent. It is time for that whatever version of ‘come to Jesus’ discussions can be had to get the younger population as determined as anyone to corral up covid19. This is history making and I’d rather the future not denote this time as they great die-off when 2/3rds of humanity succumbed for not taking the baby steps needed to intelligently control an otherwise manageable pathogen.

 

Sorry to sound so deeply ‘determined’ here. But in So. California they are setting up 80 refrigerated morgue trucks. The wheels are coming off their axles. It is insane.

I'll take the vaccine first day it's offered to me.  Getting the protection without the illness is the smart way to go.  Getting antibodies after you've had the illness is like buying a car in pieces and you have to put it together yourself. 

👍
Months after infection with SARS-CoV-2, some people are still battling crushing fatigue, lung damage and other symptoms of ‘long COVID’.

Well , at least we know that our G-kids have some natural form of  resistance , to the Virus , I think our younger generations  must be the 1st to get the vaccines , since any weakness in the lower ages group would be far worse to their elders    -

I don't know the ins & outs of this process; but I'm finding this slow vaccination to be exceedingly disappointing. It's not like we didn't see a vaccine on the horizon, shouldn't they have planned this better?  back in my military days, we had plans and exercises for all kinds of different scenarios ... so if they really happened, we weren't at square one in our response. 

I don't know where the fault ultimately belongs; but you'd think the powers to be would have known all the particulars and planned accordingly.

The hiccups should become better now going forward. Your local health department may have some info as well as Walgreens and CVS, also Rite Aid.

I'll answer that later Richie ... I'm trying to find out when replacing the toilet paper in the castle, does the queen use the paper OVER the roll method or let it hang below the roll?  the way she does it could end this pandemic.

Should have said, thinking some National guard personnel may indeed help out. Saw some with our governor recently. Good move I would say... @BigStewMan

I seriously doubt she is aware. I’m sure she has a Royal butt wiper sufficiently trained in all manner of wiping, digging, patting, rubbing, swabbing, etc. The over or under is at the desire of the wiper, not the wipee—

So she received “the best” as probably did our esteemed government officials. What makes you think you’ll receive the same? Like most of us you will get what your given, and like it —
