Sorry I misunderstood, but I guess you didn't remember the OTHER article you'd quoted.

Carry on ...

My entire family has had it as well as my wife's boss and none of us ended up in the hospital or with lung damage. I'm a triathlete and my times are on par to last year. My son had it the worst and he lost 15 lbs. I was just extremely tired for a week.

The fact that it has almost paralyzed the planet might have something to do with it.

There is a blood type theory that says type A will get hit harder and type O will be least affected. Would love to see more data on that. I’m type A and was hit hard by the virus. Had it for 3.5 months, lost 15% of body weight, lost so much hair that I had to buy a wig! Have recovered but still not 100 percent. This year’s allergy season has been the worst so far for me and I can’t help but think it’s after effects of the virus. My husband (type AB) has actually gone into adult-onset asthma from the virus and now uses an inhaler. We are in our late 40’s. This virus is no joke. I actually said at my sickest point that if I was 15+ years older I might die. Our kids fared much better and don’t seem to have any after effects. I’m no expert, but based on my reading so far into current vaccine development and the history of vaccine development for these type of viruses, not sure we have hope for CV-19 vaccine any time soon.

1st, I am very glad to hear your family had a relatively "easy" time with it. Seriously.

2nd, there is a logical fallacy here and I have "had too much day" to remember which one it is.

Just thinking about your words and I never get sick, no colds no flu and no vaccines...

So over the months I've heard so many opinions on why people get this and I've heard more than a couple times it may be hitting those more who continually get the flu vaccines every year....kinda makes some sense to me, as hitting the body with all the toxins in them certainly cannot strengthen the immune system....

And it hits their respiratory systems and hence the breathing and ventilators.

So could be MOST that have died early on did have a highly compromised immune system from years of vaccines...and that would mean nursing home people, the elderly and my thinking they've all gone for the vaccines...unless they have other thinking on keeping healthy during the flu seasons.

My daughter believes since her children now 23 and 20 had way too many vaccine as babies and that they are hit with more health issues over the last 15 yrs or so.

My theory on it all.

Well, I just looked up this theory and there is a lot of info that says YES.....

And I'm not starting a topic that is not allowed here, but it's something to THINK ABOUT.


Interested check out doctormurray.com

I'm about to send this info to my daughter who is very very into all this Prevention support on the covid and all health aspects.

I pray that your lungs and heart stay healthy for the rest of your life.


From my teleconference, this is the major concern of all the internal med specialists, cardiologists and pulmonologists

Just wondering, did you and your family always go for the annual jabs for seasonal flu?

Did you all also work with supplements to keep your immune systems stronger?

"Note that clinical laboratories should NOT attempt viral isolation from specimens collected from known or suspected COVID-19 cases."

Could you please quote where it supports your statement that, "According to what I've been told... lung inflamation does not show covid-19 when cultured."
