I won't run again, but I've never liked running anyway!

I had a really bad case of Pneumonia when I was 10 years old. Our family
doctor wanted to put me in the hospital, that day. I didn't want to be in the
hospital, and I didn't want to get behind at school. That was a Friday, after
school. I was told that like it or not, I would go, if it hadn't started to
clear up by Monday. My doctors was very confused on Monday. I had forced all
the fluids out of my lungs over the weekend and he didn't know what to say. I
still had to sit in the bleachers for a month, in Gym class because of it.


How did you force the fluid out?

I've idly wondered whether "vampire boots" used for
spinal "inversion therapy" would help with draining
the lungs w.r.t. covid, not that I've got any!

I hack and gack every day when I wake up. You cilia in your lungs
moves mucus UP the bronchials and usually in the morning, I have a
huge slug-o-phlegm to expectorate.

But my deep, deep cough it up grunts come when I take a nice big
take on cannabis. I feel better because it is the most benign
inebriant knawn to man, so I get a small, relaxing buzz, but the toke
makes me cough, and I can hack up a good one. Anyway, I am able to
fill quart bottles with it and when I dump one out, I always look at
it and say "better out than in...".

I ride a bike and have 15-20 minute allergies every morning and my
sinuses run clean and clear.

I think some of these victima are dying because the mucus is so
much it blocks lung surface from getting new/exchanging old air.
Maybe a perfluorocarbon rinse would do it. It would probably feel
like drowning, but I'll bet the congestion does too.

Cannabis for coughing.

I was laying face down on my bed, with my head and part of my chest hanging over a trash can as I coughed up gobs of the infection. I was quite sore for about two weeks afterwards. The coughing moved it, and the pressure from the mattress reduced the pain.

All I know is that it was a huge help for me, in 1962.

Oh, I've already thought of that, and have told

I prefer sleeping on my stomach, but over Christmas I
got a stiff neck and had to find a way to keep my neck
straighter. That means lying on side or back.

So that's a good excuse to revert!

Yeah, but you've wildly exaggerated the odds. And your belief in an
alternative is riddled with magical thinking. When we all come out
of our hidey-holes, the virus will be there ready for business. There
are tens of millions of human carriers spread in every country on
every continent all around the globe, and even if you could test every
human and bat and zoo animal on the planet -- which you can't -- the
test still misses 10% of the silent cases.

money and laying off staff.

This would like a poor time to dismantle our health care system by

So do I: my mother yesterday.

Doctor said she should go to A&E, and within an hour
she was there.

The A&E waiting room was sparsely packed.

She's home now; I hope she hasn't picked up something

check soon.


I hope your mum's okay.

Our emergency rooms are still open, even empty, but an E.R. isn't

You keep saying things like that, but you have no idea how people can avoid the virus completely. Medical facilities are constantly dealing with the patients and staff becoming infected. Nursing homes and elder care facilities become death camps with infections raging through.

The only way we can stop this disease is to clear it from the general population by eliminating the spread. However, unlike other countries where it works, in the US we seem to have too much of the cowboy spirit to actually stay at home and not spread this disease into the vulnerable population.

Why can't you understand that your idea is not workable and would result in huge fatality rates?

No, the virus does not live in the ground like Anthrax. It does not have a reservoir in other animals like pigs. It lives no more than 72 hours outside of a human host.

The number of active infections needs to be reduced to a point where every infection can be tracked and everyone exposed isolated. Then the disease can be eradicated. OTHER COUNTRIES ARE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO DOING THIS. The US however, seems to be unable to enforce a lock down resulting in a prolonged, slow spread through the population giving us both high infection counts and economic harm.

We don't need to worry about other countries. We need to worry about what is happening inside our borders.

This has all been said before. You just refuse to acknowledge the truth.

You over state the medical situation. The biggest problem the medical facilities have is a lack of PPE.

why isn't 4% of the Bronx dead?


Tests in the Bronx are coming back with the suggestions that the antibody test being used gives positive results for corona virus infections other than Covid-19. James Arthur likes the results because they support his idiotic idea that Covid-19 isn't all that lethal, and he's happy to ignore all the evidence that doesn't lime up with it (as he always is).

Quote:
AFAICT the fatality rate per infection looks to be about 0.3%, highly
concentrated in people who were already unwell.


And nobody can tell James Arthur that the antibody tests are throwing up far more false positives than are remotely plausible. If he could think about what he posted he wouldn't be much use as a political propagandist.

Quote:
Obviously, those people
should wait out the storm while the rest of us steer the ship.


And die of Covid-19 from time to time.

Quote:
It's insane to play a game with that kind of odds.

Yeah, but you've wildly exaggerated the odds.


James Arthur wants to wildly minimise the odds. He wants the working population out there working to generate his dividends, and he is confident that the couple of percent who will die in consequence can be replaced.

Quote:
And your belief in an
alternative is riddled with magical thinking. When we all come out
of our hidey-holes, the virus will be there ready for business.


Not if you spend enough on lock-down and contact tracing to eliminate the virus within the community locked down.

Quote:
There are tens of millions of human carriers spread in every country on
every continent all around the globe, and even if you could test every
human and bat and zoo animal on the planet -- which you can't -- the
test still misses 10% of the silent cases.


But the immune systems of the carriers doesn't. There's no viral equivalent of Typhoid Mary. Silent cases don't stay infectious for as long as visible cases - they'd have developed into symptomatic cases if they did.

The Australian contact tracing efforts are currently finding that only a third of detected cases can't be traced back to a known infection, which mean that no more than one third of Covid-19 infections can be asymptomatic.

Sampling Brisbane's sewage for Covid-19 suggested that the Australian monitoring is picking up pretty much everybody who has the disease.
Quote:

If you can afford to dodge the bullet, do so.

The 'Dept. of Health' has a pretty good idea that a fast spreading disease
can overwhelm the local facilities, , did you find a graphic on that, too?

Duh. But we're nowhere close. Hospitals sufficiently distant from
New York's mass virus-distribution system are deserted, hemorrhaging
money and laying off staff.

This would like a poor time to dismantle our health care system by
trying to hide from something that isn't going away.


No sensible health care system would start dismantling itself in the middle of an epidemic. The US health system is sensible of its need keep on making money, and insensitive to any other consideration.

James Arthur is always happy to let ideological considerations trump common sense.

If there's any US left after Covid-19 has demonstrated that the US system for running the country is lethally inadequate, there may be a few Covid-19 war trials where people like him might be obliged to try justify their lethally silly ideas.

Straw man argument; I didn't estimate the odds, I just pointed out
that Russian roulette wasn't any kind of minimum threshold for insanity.

A breakdown of health care would hurt all persons badly, even if there
weren't deaths involved. Odds of nonsurvival aren't the only important measure
of a disease.
