The media/government system is officially transforming coronavirus into something new, where it’s a virus that you get and it gives you the sniffles but then it goes away – but it doesn’t really go away!
They can say whatever they want, because it’s officially a bannable offense to question anything that anyone says about coronavirus.
Scientists are only starting to grasp the vast array of health problems caused by the novel coronavirus, some of which may have lingering effects on patients and health systems for years to come, according to doctors and infectious disease experts.
Besides the respiratory issues that leave patients gasping for breath, the virus that causes COVID-19 attacks many organ systems, in some cases causing catastrophic damage.
“We thought this was only a respiratory virus. Turns out, it goes after the pancreas. It goes after the heart. It goes after the liver, the brain, the kidney and other organs. We didn’t appreciate that in the beginning,” said Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California.
In addition to respiratory distress, patients with COVID-19 can experience blood clotting disorders that can lead to strokes, and extreme inflammation that attacks multiple organ systems. The virus can also cause neurological complications that range from headache, dizziness and loss of taste or smell to seizures and confusion.
And recovery can be slow, incomplete and costly, with a huge impact on quality of life.
All of that can come from the flu, too. I don’t know if this is even real, but if it is, it is outlier cases.
All kinds of weird things can happen to anyone in any situation. But the fact remains that most people who get infected with coronavirus experience a mild flu or no symptoms at all and it goes away and they’re fine.
The broad and diverse manifestations of COVID-19 are somewhat unique, said Dr. Sadiya Khan, a cardiologist at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago.
With influenza, people with underlying heart conditions are also at higher risk of complications, Khan said. What is surprising about this virus is the extent of the complications occurring outside the lungs.
Kahn believes there will be a huge healthcare expenditure and burden for individuals who have survived COVID-19.
While much of the focus has been on the minority of patients who experience severe disease, doctors increasingly are looking to the needs of patients who were not sick enough to require hospitalization, but are still suffering months after first becoming infected.
Studies are just getting underway to understand the long-term effects of infection, Jay Butler, deputy director of infectious diseases at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters in a telephone briefing on Thursday.
“We hear anecdotal reports of people who have persistent fatigue, shortness of breath,” Butler said. “How long that will last is hard to say.”
While coronavirus symptoms typically resolve in two or three weeks, an estimated 1 in 10 experience prolonged symptoms, Dr. Helen Salisbury of the University of Oxford wrote in the British Medical Journal on Tuesday.
Salisbury said many of her patients have normal chest X-rays and no sign of inflammation, but they are still not back to normal.
“If you previously ran 5k three times a week and now feel breathless after a single flight of stairs, or if you cough incessantly and are too exhausted to return to work, then the fear that you may never regain your previous health is very real,” she wrote.
Some people take longer to get over an illness, some people feel okay and think they’ve fought off a bug and it comes back. This is life. This virus is not a big deal, as we see now that they’re claiming all these huge numbers of people have it and yet no one is dying.
But they are going to do their best to change it into something else, so they can keep pushing these bizarre restrictions on us indefinitely. This “oh but what if there are secret effects” nonsense is just part of that agenda.
Will it be successful?
Almost certainly, based on how insane people went over the initial hoax. There is literally zero reason to believe that the public is ever going to be able to rationally analyze this situation.
Yes, more and more people are saying it’s a hoax, people who were diehard believers are now saying things like, “I just don’t know anymore.” But enough people are still willing to go along with whatever goofy crap they come up with that a second lockdown is absolutely possible when the weather starts to get cold again and infections rise.
This insanity with the virus has been setup to serve as a backdrop for all of these other revolutions, and they’re going to keep it going as long as they need to keep it going.
