She is healthy, except obesity which is one of the high risk factor for young people who is considered healthy. I see a lot of these cases in the hospital.
I've only gone to work and back for months. Order in everything. My Son has gone to the Dr. for a couple of various reasons and all performed in a safe manner. I cannot fathom why folks can't just chill for awhile and not live life to the fullest so to speak. Buddy of mine already bought hotel etc...in Vegas for Christmas, can't understand the reasoning behind that either. Everybody needs to just workout and work and chill at home for an extended period. I wear a mask always wherever I am and am more patriotic and conservative than perhaps I get credit for sometimes. What's wrong with folks. We need to fear the unknown and be skeptical of folks telling us this and that but also we need to make rational choices about right vs. wrong like we do in many other facets of our modern life.
It usually takes about two minutes of conversation with somebody that's been "very careful" to realize that they aren't.
On a brighter note. We had the first day with all states having 50 or less deaths in one day since March (even sunday). That could change, but hey
Obesity is a known condition for Covid to become severe. Cytokine storm ramps up and organ damage ensues.
Healthy? I don't think people understand that word anymore. 100lbs overweight is not healthy. I don't care if that is who you are and I am not trying to body shame anyone but that is not "healthy"
Sorry, being overweight is not healthy. Just because your younger with no issues yet doesn’t mean your body is healthy
I still find the death rates puzzling in the US. Was 285 yesterday, Its down over 90% from a peak and keeps going down. It down 75% from June 1. Sure there is a delay between a new case and fatality but its been 4 weeks since the new case trend startup up. The death rate trend down continues as it has been since April.
In Texas we just had a major dust storm over the weekend from Africa, causing respiratory issues. That explains a big hike in hospital visits. There was an emergency alert that said hospitals are filling up due to COVID but a lot more cake due to asthma and other flare ups from the dust.
“And I’m healthy. I don’t understand how I got this bad.”
people are still not educated enough or they choose to ignore facts.
If you went to a public restaurant, you let your guard down and exposed yourself to the virus or you just made the story up to hide that you really went to the beach, public gathering, and thought you could not possibly catch the disease.
Cases are going to increase no matter when we open. ICU's are NOT being overwhelmed. In fact the 4 major medical centers had to issue a statement saying initial reports were taken out of context and they have the ability to increase capacity at a moment's notice. Also, the death rate it NOT increasing in the same proportions. 30 people dying a day in a state of 29,000,000 people is hardly end times catastrophic.
