Not really sure, I haven’t really seen/heard much yet about instances when people who are vaccinated are under less restrictions. Except for international travel and associated quarantines it seems. Otherwise, honor system is all I see. In regard to prior infections without a vaccine, I suppose they should possibly be awarded with some sort of card showing proof tooi believe it exists because i had it....
so, ricky do you think that people who have had covid should be exempted from any restriction place on non-vaccinated people?
The overweight (and often not all that much) are certainly the majority of our patients. It would have been, and still would be an opportune time to make lifestyle changes!People had a year and a half to wake up and make lifestyle changes in order to prepare their bodies for the potential of a long term exposure to the CCP-Virus, instead I keep seeing obese people on CiaNN on breathing machines saying they wish they took the shot.
I lost 60 lbs in a year and a half, so could they…instead we end up with a fatter nation than ever.
I don’t know about the air pollution thing, and I’m not much of an environmentalist. Seems like it would be hard to quantify air pollution deaths. Not quite sure what their diagnostics are?Outdoor air pollution accounts for 4.2 million deaths a year globally, more than that entire list of total combined including the CCP-Virus.
Why are people going apeshyt shuting stuff down over CCP-Virus but not air pollution? If anything Im willing to bet the shutdowns last year saved more people from air pollution than the CCP-Virus. I think those two are most comparable (compared to eating, and individual choice) because you get it from the air you breath, they are "contagious" (I know the difference lol) in similar ways as its not a choice if you get sick or not if exposed.
Now they opened everything back up and killing people all over again.
Air pollution kills an estimated seven million people worldwide every year. WHO data shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. WHO is working with countries to monitor air pollution and improve air quality.www.who.int
Yeah, most people that have one of those chronic illnesses have many of those chronic illnesses. However, I don’t really understand how some people argue that when someone with a CHF and COPD history dies of COVID pneumonia, that it shouldn’t be considered a China virus death.i would say the vast majority of people requiring hospitalization or dying from covid were suffering from at least 1 chronic ailment listed on that chart.
and death from covid includes people in hospice care who were already close to death--in 2018 1.55 million patients were in hospice care. people in hospice care and close to death could die from catching a cold as easily as from covid.
1.55 million in hospice care every year..and at the onset of covid-19 no protection was in place to protect them or the 1,290,000 vulnerable people living in nursing homes.
so when you have 345,000 dying with covid it seems a miracle the number isn't much higher.
As far as people on hospice care, I also think that if a COVID pneumonia is the straw that broke the camel’s back, it is only right to quantify it as a China virus death. Just like if the same said person on hospice care with or without the China virus decides to go out for a walk in the woods and a tree falls on them, it should qualify as an unintentional injury. As otherwise, they more than likely would have still been alive at the end of the day.
Essentially, I just need to get my ass out of this mess my job has turned into. It’s never going to end and its mentally and physically toxic.
