COVID Deaths (Facebook discussion)

Jess Mickelson
Covid is an invented problem and medical professionals are bribed to keep calling everything a Covid death. People who were going to die anyway are the ones that are hypothetically affected. At least you see one of the reasons I have been singularly against the facemasks, social distancing, shutdowns, protocols, communism, the ruination of businesses, increase in suicide rates, vaccinations, booster shots, inflation, etc. Healthy people of any age just get over it. An increase in Covid deaths has always been accompanied by a decrease in other forms of death.

    Jess Mickelson This pandemic has shown me who the crazy people are. Two of my close friends have sent me some really wild paranoid conspiracy theories, so that tells me something about their mental states.
    All your premises are wrong. Dead wrong. COVID deaths have NOT been inflated. There was a 22.9% excess death rate. Many otherwise healthy young people have died.
    I have family members with cancer who are immunocompromised due to therapy. Their lives matter too. They might not live as long as they would have otherwise, but treatment has prolonged their lives, and catching COVID would be an immediate death sentence. I have gone to extreme lengths to not catch COVID and spread it to family members.
    Older people with no underlying condition have a much higher rate of dying. Their lives matter too. I am in an age group, over 60, where the death rate is around 3 times higher.
    To quote one of my friends, "I don't want to accidentally cause the death of someone else." We all have the potential to catch and spread the disease. It takes a special kind of asshole to not care that he might catch the disease and then spread it to someone else who then might die.
    COVID can have serious long-term consequences for those who get it.
    Study after study has shown that masks are at least partially effective at stopping the spread of the disease.
    "Between March 1, 2020, and January 2, 2021, the US experienced 2 801 439 deaths, 22.9% more than expected, representing 522 368 excess deaths."
    COVID-19 also has led to serious illness and even death in younger and middle-aged adults who are otherwise healthy. While most children have mild or no symptoms, some have gotten severely ill. As with adults, even if children have no symptoms, they can spread the virus to others.
    While most people recover in a matter of weeks, some adults and children experience post-COVID conditions known as "long COVID," which can appear weeks after infection and can include a range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems. These range from fatigue and muscle pain to—in extreme cases—autoimmune conditions and multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a condition where different body parts become swollen. Even people who had mild symptoms or no symptoms at all when they were infected can have post-COVID conditions.
    Types of Post-COVID Conditions
    New or Ongoing Symptoms
    Some people experience a range of new or ongoing symptoms that can last weeks or months after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Unlike some of the other types of post-COVID conditions that tend only to occur in people who have had severe illness, these symptoms can happen to anyone who has had COVID-19, even if the illness was mild, or if they had no initial symptoms. People commonly report experiencing different combinations of the following symptoms:
    Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    Tiredness or fatigue
    Symptoms that get worse after physical or mental activities (also known as post-exertional malaise)
    Difficulty thinking or concentrating (sometimes referred to as "brain fog")
    Cough
    Chest or stomach pain
    Headache
    Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations)
    Joint or muscle pain
    Pins-and-needles feeling
    Diarrhea
    Sleep problems
    Fever
    Dizziness on standing (lightheadedness)
    Rash
    Mood changes
    Change in smell or taste
    Changes in menstrual period cycles
    Multiorgan Effects of COVID-19
    Some people who had severe illness with COVID-19 experience multiorgan effects or autoimmune conditions over a longer time with symptoms lasting weeks or months after COVID-19 illness. Multiorgan effects can affect many, if not all, body systems, including heart, lung, kidney, skin, and brain functions. Autoimmune conditions happen when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing inflammation (swelling) or tissue damage in the affected parts of the body.
    While it is very rare, some people, mostly children, experience multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) during or immediately after a COVID-19 infection. MIS is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed. MIS can lead to post-COVID conditions if a person continues to experience multiorgan effects or other symptoms.
