Iím not picking on you in particular, Edible, but I spent over 25 years in the medical field.
Well, God bless. Iím sure you served with distinction. 💖👍
My husband is a trained medical combat veteran who saw active duty on the front lines in the first Gulf war and was trained by medical doctors himself.
As a free-birthing mother whoís had all ten and soon my eleventh, at home, Iím well aware of how in standard practice there is very little evidence based practice. Youíll pardon me if I discard Internet conspiracies and tabloid sound bites over mine and my colleaguesí actual education and experience with infectious viruses.
I believe in facts as well. I think you would be surprised at how much Iíve educated myself and not in ďtabloid media medicine.Ē I was employed in the medical field when the initial SARS outbreak occurred, years ago. Losing a patient a week, watching them drown from the inside out, might give you a bit of a better perspective. Or maybe not.
Considering what youíve seen and the reports youíve seen on CNN that all paints a real picture. But itís a propaganda machine filled with misinformation as well.
Did you know fatality rates are now down by 85% thanks to new therapies?
Did you know the gross numbers you cite include stabbings, blunt trauma such as motorcycle accidents, and other serious complications? Georgie Floyd is one such associated death.
The actual numbers of Covid without serious comorbidity is MUCH SMALLER.
Like around 10,000. Not a serious number at all. https://www.medpagetoday.com/blogs/working-stiff/88141 When you throw out all the progress weíve made in the areas of scientific understanding, I suppose it leaves room to believe all kinds of theories that have no basis in reality.
Iím not one of those claiming that math and science are racist,so donít include me in that one! If you had that education or experience, you might understand why people who are actually working in ICUís right now have no time to take people comparing this virus to the flu seriously.
They are suffering massive moral burnout. Checkout this video https://youtu.be/z2VcMQgxg5M
Go to the 55 minutes for the bottom line... she was stabbed while healthy and then everything after was covid (code ; ignore until ventilated)
to understand my take on covid suffering. I believe that itís a more complicated story that SARS could have ever been. Suicides? Be my guest. If you donít want to be here anymore, then by all means, you have the right not to be. I believe in physical autonomy, except where it infringes on the rights of so many others, particularly where those ďothersĒ among you are the least able to defend themselves. All so you can what? Get that Starbucks? Consume ever more useless crap in a world of rapidly declining resources? Itís amazing to me how many throw out praises to ďGodĒ while worshipping that almighty dollar instead.
You didnít just say itís better to commit suicide If you cannot stand lockdown torture... as a granny ...than be with your grandkids? Wouldnít dying of covid be more sensible?
Shouldnít THAT be a option!? If you believe that 270K (and growing by the day) Americans are an acceptable loss so that this system based on unfettered consumption can continue on its merry way, then you have the right to your beliefs. Iím not here to change your mind. Iím only here to dispel the myth that this virus will only happen to those ďotherĒ people. Again, just a little basic scientific knowledge about the way viruses behave is enough for most of us to understand that in the end, it wonít just come for your weak and feeble.
Thatís not understanding my position but the above should clarify. I suppose in the end, it will all come down to the virusí will to adapt and survive vs our own.
The virus needs living hosts to be a success. It will attenuate like AIDS. And medicine is catching up. If thereís any conspiracy out there, Iíd agree that our education system is failing a lot of you at around the fifth grade level when it comes to math and science. Other than that, itís just watching a bunch of politicians with no real interests except their own power play roulette with millions of lives at stake.
Essential services are being cut off in New Mexico, ahem. People will die of untreated cancer because of Covid. As well as other sick people. We can agree the whole thing has been handled badly. How a medical pandemic became a political soapbox is astounding to have witnessed.
Personal health should never be political but thatís medical tyranny for you. 👍
