Get the vaccine.

I have the Coronavirus. My wife has it. My oldest son has it. My daughter-in-law has it.

We’ve been incredibly careful all year. And we still got it.

Get the vaccine.

The virus can have long-term effects on the heart and brain. Autopsies of COVID patients have shown that it can cause tiny blood clots in those major organs.

The actual symptoms we’ve had aren’t very severe. Low-grade fever that comes and goes, tightness in the chest, weariness, some coughing, body aches and skin sensitivity. My wife lost her sense of taste; I did not. She’s not hungry, I’ve been eating a lot.

We’re only in Day 3 of the infection but so far I’ve had cases of the flu that were much worse. Having said that, there’s a lot of uncertainty...and disturbing indications that COVID may have nasty surprises in the long-term.

Get the vaccine.

Oh, did I mention? Get the vaccine.

Of course it has when you count it as the cause of death in falls, shootings, car accidents , if the person had the virus even with no symptoms.
No use questioning that. The cdc admitted it on national television several times.
So, what are you implying, that Covid deaths are not a real issue?

I enjoy international travel so as soon as it's available to me I'll be getting vaccinated. Besides, I don't like getting sick and I sure as heck don't want to chance catching a virus that could potentially put my in the hospital.

If you have any breathing issues at all, or smoke, this will hit you hard. I quit 20 years ago, thank God, but if I still smoked I’m sure I’d be in the hospital now.

Imply nothing . Flat out stateing the CDC by its own admission have greatly inflated the numbers of deaths by the way they classify covid deaths.
Ok, so if not 300,000, how many, if any deaths do you estimate due to Covid?

I have to laugh when there is talk of calling a vaccine, the Trump vaccine. I can't see people queuing up to get some Trump injected into them. But of course no leader would be narcissistic enough to let that happen, would they.

Just guessing based on what thr CDC admitted probably less than half that number with most of them actually dieing of prexisting illness.

The thing has a 99.9 percent survival rate.
I haven't seen that, where did you get that figure from.

Why does that not suprize me.
Jhons Hopkins.
Even with the CDC inflating numbers covid

Has a 1.9 % mortality rate in the U.S. Admittedly my off the top of my head math was sightly off .
Still the stupid virus has been trurned into a political control tool.

...and just where did you get your medical degree?

I have family members that have had it also......half a dozen that I know of.....no deaths, some fevers, some loss of taste and smell, slight cough, some fatigue, NO know lasting effects. Heck, eating grape jelly may have last effects, but saying so doesn't make it so.

So you trust Johns Hopkins.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 vs. the Flu | Johns Hopkins Medicine

The COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly. Since this disease is caused by a new virus, the vast majority of people do not yet have immunity to it, and a vaccine may be many months away. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the mortality rate of COVID-19, but at present, it is thought to be substantially higher (possibly 10 times or more) than that of most strains of the flu.

Um hum. And the initail prodictions from the " experts" where what , 30 times as many dead in the U.S than actually occurred.
Its a handy socialist tool to get the people to respond like trained seals to gov orders no matter how ridiculous or harmful. Period.

To soon to know if they will have any lasting effects.

  • Heart. Imaging tests taken months after recovery from COVID-19 have shown lasting damage to the heart muscle,( even in people who experienced only mild COVID-19 symptoms.) This may increase the risk of heart failure or other heart complications in the future.
  • Lungs. The type of pneumonia often associated with COVID-19 can cause long-standing damage to the tiny air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. The resulting scar tissue can lead to long-term breathing problems.
  • Persistent health problems reported following acute COVID-19 disease include:
    • respiratory symptoms and conditions such as chronic cough, shortness of breath, lung inflammation and fibrosis, and pulmonary vascular disease
    • cardiovascular symptoms and disease such as chest tightness, acute myocarditis and heart failure
    • protracted loss or change of smell and taste
    • mental health problems including depression, anxiety and cognitive difficulties
    • inflammatory disorders such as myalgia, multisystem inflammatory syndrome, Guillain-Barre syndrome, or neuralgic amyotrophy
    • gastrointestinal disturbance with diarrhoea
    • continuing headaches
    • fatigue, weakness and sleeplessness
    • liver and kidney dysfunction
    • clotting disorders and thrombosis
    • lymphadenopathy
    • skin rashes.
