Have you lost a good friend or relative to COVID-19?

Sorry for the doom and gloom question today, folks, but we’d like to know.

COVID-19 has taken the lives of more than 2.3 million people across our beautiful globe. Remember when there was just one case in the United States? I don’t think that’s something we’ll ever forget…

You can keep track of state-by-state infections, deaths and recoveries here.

❤

Have you lost a good friend or relative to this virus? Please tell us by voting in the poll below. If you or someone you know is currently hospitalized or sick, we’ll keep them in our thoughts.

1 cousin died, 1 cousin and 2 friends hospitalized, acquaintances father died, neighbor died. The 3 who died were early 60’s, living independently, 1 very healthy, other 2 with no severe health issues, all ended up on respirators. Multiple positives among acquaintances. Its very real to me.

Background: I have roughly 100 friends, family, and coworkers who have now had it (and of course, we ALL will eventually, duh?). I had it myself about as bad as possible short of dying and still feel some effects, and Gary Bunzer on here is the only person I “know” who has died of it. But one’s subjective experience/sampling means nothing in the big picture.

Conclusion: I am still in the no-mask camp, will not get the vaccine myself until held down by force, and DO absolutely know it’s a “false flag” political scam to destroy Constitutional rights. I’m not crazy — I’m watching the hard science. Flu has literally disappeared this year, which isn’t medically possible. Many people have died — but no more than normal, which is a clear mis-labelling of cause. “Died with” is NOT “died from” even if some DO “die from.”

I’ve worked up close with domestic abuse, fostercare, and mental health providers — all of which cases are EXPLODING *far* in excess of C19 mortality while this forced quarantine continues. The “cure” is harming and killing more than the disease. Yep, it’s a nasty bug, no doubt, but we’re handling it DEAD wrong in the big picture. I spit up pieces of lung MYSELF, and still say this is wrong.

Masks: Proven over and over to be a scam. Viral rates are IDENTICAL with and without, so just stop the feelgood BS.

Vaccines: probably worthwhile if you’re high-risk, but proven pointless if you’re young or already had it. Seriously, understand how virii work before you lose your mind for PR stunts. If you’re low-risk, abstain so high-risk folks can get it sooner.

More philosophically, do you want to “live” in a jailcell? Many older friends are afraid to spend time with their families (yes, medically advisable for short periods). Time to live is literally running out while they wait to live worthwhile lives. At some point, *I* believe the risk is worthwhile — but right now, young and no-risk or older and risk-tolerant, YOU DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR SELF. That’s wrong. I’ll say it.

Since I can’t be polite or respectful of your rant, I choose to just move on.

Younger brother had it. Thought he had a slight cold until he lost his sense of smell. My 93 year old father spent 10 days in the hospital and will be coming home from rehab tomorrow.

wife and I both had it – no worse than a light case of flu for 2 days. Course regular dosing of Vit D3, Vit K2 , Zinc , Quercitin no doubt helped. For just a very few Covid was quite nasty but remember 99.7% recover completely and would I take the shot – no way, I like Merck’s philosophy ” Best to Let your immune system fight this Illness “

No, but it was close with our 33-year-old daughter-in-law and she’s a “long-hauler” with serious side effects (heart, lungs, brain) for several months since her discharge from the hospital.

My daughter also. Ongoing heart inflammation, and loss of smell. She got it a year ago in Feb. Emergency room doctors in Brooklyn couldn’t figure out what was wrong other than they suspected a virus.

Lost an aunt and a cousin/brother in law who was married to two of my sister In laws(not at the same time)

Lost two friends and have three who are now deemed ‘Long Haulers’ due to ongoing issues over six month after they were in the hospital. Had a coworker who was in the hospital for six weeks with it, and still refuses to wear a mask, thinking the whole thing is a ‘false-flag operation’. Yeah, he’s gone DEEP down the misinformation rabbit-hole.

I don’t know anyone who has even had the SARS2 virus.

I was able to say that for a long time, but not anymore. I know at least one who died, and a handful of people who were infected and sick.

Not until recently, an elderly lady friend of ours, who had a laundry list of ailments passed on a week after we saw her. We had hugged her and held her hands on that occasion but the wife and I had no symptoms or sickness from the contact.
We had known this person for a very long time… we will miss her sweet nature and bright loving smile…

Perhaps a third choice of “not yet” would be appropriate.

Yes, the poll is shown as closed. No, I have not lost any friends or relatives to the virus. My wife did lose one of her high school classmates, a nurse in a nursing home, but she, too, has not lost any relatives or friends. We both know a few people who have recovered from the virus.

Yes, I lost my older brother (3 years older at age 67) at the very beginning of Covid, March 21st. You can see it was during the very first spike. He had no underlying conditions that anyone knew of. I never thought I would be without my brother. I just never imagined it. This virus is a crap shoot. It affects some and not others.
