250k dead americans today. that number has more than doubled since pence proclaimed "mission accomplished" and media hysteria on june 16.
and now the virus is spreading exponentially across the U.S. in a couple of weeks 3k Americans will be dying daily
Well, I'm sure we will see an exponential improvement after January. No doubt as soon as we get rid of some people. Although, what is happening in Europe, where our people are not in charge? I think Europe is running about
320,000 new cases per day. I'm not sure what they might have done differently than us, maybe more masks? More shutdowns? Or less? Either way, seems about
as bad there as here. They had over 300K deaths a week or two back(don't know how that works out population adjusted)
But I have to just sigh. Because I also believe there have been, and continues to be, vastly more deaths than were necessary, and you guys know why I think that. And I'm right, according to the science. And I don't mean masks or distancing or even future vaccines, as helpful as all of those things might be. This has been like watching a Bizzarro world. Where the most obvious elephant in the room is continually ignored or down played.
But I did comment a couple of weeks ago about
how, alleluia, on local news, they were talking about
all of the studies indicating that adequate vitamin D status might be a big help. Then tonight, literally as I was typing this, I nearly fainted, as a report came on NBC nightly news about
ways to boost your immune system to help fight CV-19 and flu. First they mentioned the importance of vitamin C! Then zinc. Finally(they even brought on a doctor/MD to say these things) Vitamin D and how we could not get enough in our diet. And how unless we were getting plenty of daily southern sun, WE NEEDED TO SUPPLEMENT! Now maybe this had been on the news before and I just missed it? But I watch NBC nightly news most nights, and I have no memory of such. So God bless them for finally mentioning it. Then again, 6 months ago would have been nice, even before the Covid specific studies. Because they have known regarding flu and asthma for years. Which is why I was able to confidently bet that almost every one in ICU with CV-19 was low on vitamin D and close to zero on C. Though as far as I know, no one has yet checked on the blood C levels of Covid patients in ICU. But we sure as heck no about
So this is great news about
the vaccines. As well as the fact that they might hopefully help without bad SEs, they will also be accepted by most people and most doctors. So maybe life can get back closer to normal. But really, early public notice about
other things we could take that probably would help, would have been nice 6 months ago, and the huge numbers of deaths were unneccesary. Most, or many, probably could have been prevented. Fauci does not take 6000 IU/day of D for no reason. He is not stupid.
I wonder what the % of HWPC brothers is who have had Covid, or more importantly, had a bad case of it? I'm going to bet, even though we are a higher risk group, we are well below average for serious CV-19 cases. Mainly because we are well informed on all of the above.
