Death count for corona virus artificially high
Good news about the Corona Virus. I know it is tiring to keep hearing about it. When is it going to end? Well, bear with me a minute. The news I wanted to share is from a video of some of the officials from the State of Illinois at a press conference. So what? Well, they in plain English explained that if anyone dies from anything at all and they have the Corona Virus at the same time, their death is counted as a Corona death. So, for example, if you fall off a cliff and die but you had the Corona virus and no symptoms (as most cases are)- you get counted as reason for death as Corona virus. So the same goes for cancer, for dying of complications from diabetes... anything. Everything gets counted as a death count number for Corona virus if you die... regardless of why you died.
So, what does that mean? That means that the numbers of true deaths from Corona Virus are way, way, way too high. Most people have no symptoms at all. The virus is so weak for most people they don't even notice it at all. And others may have a cough. It is actually the rare person that gets serious side-effects and even more rare is the person who dies from this virus being the only cause... I bet it is almost never the only cause.
I just wanted to share that good news with you. Here is a link to the Illinois public officials answering questions at a press conference if you are interested: https://www.facebook.com/lesa.fisherpatten/videos/3151129788277372
As always, I am here to help and continuing to help with usual stuff... flus and allergies, aches and pains, hormones and weight-loss, rashes and stomach problems, pregnancy, tiredness, and various other non-covid things. I want the office here to be a safe place to come and get care, to share a laugh or two, and to leave with some sane things to try for improving your health.
