At least your username is appropriate for the quality of your sources.

Panic media non-sense...

Watch this link, calm yourself.

https://www.pscp.tv/w/1ynJOpPyZlqxR

Some quotes around 13:30-16:00

“Risk of dying from C19 right now is .00000012 for a given individual.”

“The H1N1 primarily killed 40-60-year-olds. That was the risk group: 40-60. Again, no one knows that; it killed 500,000 people and infected 1 billion, 1 billion, with a ‘b’!”

“People are confusing individual risk with systematic risk”.

Just being age 20 or 5 doesn’t make you immune magically. There is no more need to panic if someone healthy age 15 dies from C19 anymore than if a healthy individual dies from a heart attack or stroke. Extremely rare, we don’t know why these things happen, but they very rarely do.

The virus is not “attacking 30 year olds now”. It’s statistically “attacks” (detrimentally effects would be a less fear mongering word) older folks, and yes no age or health is 100% safe.

We are humans, we are mortal, things kill us, we aren’t guaranteed a certain age.

The panic is beyond ridiculous.

What do Dr Phil and Dr Oz have to say about this? Is there also a berry I can eat to kill the virus?

Maybe buy a pulse oximeter? They are pretty inexpensive.

Quote:
“They all have the same complaints. They’ve been home for a week, under the weather with flu. The flu is over, for two days they feel fine and then they arrive complaining of a dry cough and shortness of breath. When we measure their oxygen saturation (i.e. the amount of oxygen in their blood, we see particularly low oxygen saturations for their age.”

At that point doctors are alerted to the fact that these patients are in trouble. The people don’t realise it because at the time they don’t feel ill.: “They come walking in, but they have been dreadfully impacted by the virus. Dr Demeyer released lung scans of a corona patient.

On the photo left you see normal lungs. In the second photo lung air sacs (pulmonary alveolus) are filled with up to 25% infection fluid. The third photo shows the sacs filled to the tune of up to 90%.

Dr Ignace Demeyer: “These people can be cured, but these are life-threatening situations. These are non-smokers, with no underlying health complaints like diabetes or heart failure. They are young, sports-loving people.”

Still kinda scary. News gets worse everyday.

Quick primer on how the virus attacks the body:

Low grade click-bait. Nothing about this from the CDC.
