You really don't listen to your own voice, do you? You said there is validity in what I said, okay. Now take into account there is no cure or treatment as you say. Now look at the fact of this on par to influenza again.david63 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 8:56 amWhilst there is some validity in that statement the difference is that there are treatments and vaccines for influenza which go some way towards mitigating the problems. Until such time treatments/vaccines are available for Covid-19 then it remains a serious threat to life.
There are things that can be done for the treatment of COVID-19. One of which is hydroxychloroquine which my own sister was given and spared the fate of a ventilator. As were many thousands of people given it. The FDA's assessment is just sure stupidity and an overreaction. And it doesn't surprise me being a government clown agency that wouldn't even approve of possible life saving cancer medications that I have signed petition after petition on for one's right to take it. Thankfully Trump signed into law the Right To Try act which puts all that FDA crap back on their BS bureaucrat desk's.
There are other medications that can be given for the treatment of COVID-19 as well such as antibiotics and prednisone. But I'm not a doctor, so that's a doctor patient decision.
Addendum: While there is a "vaccine" for influenza it doesn't cover all the bases. You could end up with a different strain that the vaccine never covered. In my opinion, and I'm not a doctor, is that a vaccine nullifies the virus threat like polio.
And the threat is not "serious" to most people unless you fulfill certain criteria. And if I was a politician like a governor my orders would be based on those criteria. If your a smoker, morbid obese, dealing with a cancer, are over the age 60, etc, etc, then you are to stay home as long as possible. For the rest, live long a prosper, and do prosper because poverty will kill us all!
