This post derives from an inspiration from a family member.
Some people have strenuously objected to vaccination and a number of these “anti-vaxxers” have perished from COVID 19. There is a strong consistency among them. See if you figure out what it is.
Curt Carpenter, 28
The family of a 28-year-old anti-vaxxer who died from Covid have revealed how he regretted not getting vaccinated in his final days in an ICU unit, and admitted that it was “not a hoax”.
Stephen Harmon, 34
A man who joked about not having the Covid vaccine has died after a month-long battle with the virus.
Stephen Harmon, a member of the Hillsong megachurch, passed away on Wednesday at the Corona Regional Medical Center outside Los Angeles.
The 34-year-old was being treated for Covid and pneumonia and had been a vocal opponent of coronavirus vaccines. In June, he tweeted: “If you’re having email problems, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one.”
Dick Farrel, 65
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former South Florida talk show host Dick Farrel, known and beloved by fans for his over-the-top right-wing opinions, has died from complications from COVID-19.
On Facebook, Farrel advocated against getting the coronavirus vaccine and was skeptical of Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and his recommendations concerning the coronavirus. Friends said after contracting the virus he changed his point of view.
Daniel Trujillo, 33
A 33-year-old Colorado sheriff’s deputy who publicly criticized the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines died from COVID-19 complications. Daniel Trujillo, a married father of two, died on Wednesday, the Denver Sheriff’s Department said.
“It is with great sadness that we share 33-year-old Denver Sheriff Deputy Daniel “Duke” Trujillo passed away last evening from COVID-19 complications,” the department wrote on Facebook Thursday morning.
H. Scott Apley, 45
A local Texas politician who appeared skeptical on social media of mask use and Covid-19 vaccines died this week from complications of the coronavirus, the mayor of his community said Friday.
Dickinson Councilman H. Scott Apley’s death was first announced Wednesday on the Texas Republican Party’s page, which did not detail the cause, but posts on social media about how he had been hospitalized with Covid have underscored a sharp political divide during the pandemic.
These unfortunate people had something in common. They were all vaccine skeptics. They were all overweight and/or obese. They all became deathbed converts.
Obesity is a major comorbidity in COVID 19.
To summarize, numerous studies indicate that obesity is associated with increased disease severity and mortality in COVID-19.
Obesity is a common, serious, and costly chronic disease. Having obesity puts people at risk for many other serious chronic diseases and increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in turning the tide against obesity and its disproportionate impact on racial and ethnic minority groups.
If you are overweight, vaccination is highly recommended.
If you are obese, it is imperative that you be vaccinated.
If you know someone like this, please urge them to get vaccinated. The risk from the vaccine is far less than the risk of COVID in this population.
That is all.
Obesity does make covid worse, BUT there have been people killed (of covid) inside hospitals when doctors falsely claimed that there was nothing that could be done for them.
“The disease just has to run its course,” one doctor is quoted as saying as a 27 year old man (not obese) died slowly of covid.
There are treatments that should be available but are held back by politics.
HCQ and Ivermectin are only two of them that are unavailable but that work wonders.
Doctors in hospitals have access to these but CHOOSE to watch people die instead of saving them.
Do what you will, but know what you’re doing.
Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19 — https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/why-you-should-not-use-ivermectin-treat-or-prevent-covid-19
Than an HCQ have been used with great success.
You could sleep with a rabbit’s foot under your pillow and receive the same protective or curative benefit, without the risk of potentially serious side effects.
If hydroxychloroquine were effective in the prevention or treatment of COVID illness, it would be widely used for that. There’s not a global conspiracy among medical professionals to deprive their patients of a readily available medication that could prevent or help them recover from COVID.
There DOES seem to be widespread susceptibility to all sorts of conspiracy theories.
It IS widely used, as I have shown before. You are aware that DOCTORS prescribe and administer it, right? People aren’t allowed to just go buy themselves some hydroxychloroquine and use all they want. But the left doesn’t want a cheap and effective treatment. They want fear and dependency.
It isn’t being widely prescribed by doctors to prevent or treat COVID.
There’s a very good reason why people aren’t allowed to buy and use prescription medications however they want.
Well… DUH. Who said they should? The left denounced HCQ as if people were self-medicating with it when, in fact, it isn’t even available without a prescription. However, is was proven effective in treating early symptoms and keeping people out of hospitals: saving lives.
Democrats don’t care about lives. They care about power.
Nope. Sorry. That’s horse manure. It WAS NOT proven to be effective against COVID at any point.
There were only questionable claims by several doctors—who seemed to like the spotlight—anecdotal reports, and a couple of small, early, and flawed studies.
On the weight of that and Trump’s repeated public endorsement of the drug—and given the understandable desperation of doctors and their seriously ill patients, who argued they had little to lose by trying it—the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization. The EUA was subsequently REVOKED as multiple controlled studies and statistical reports came in, indicating that hydroxychloroquine was INEFFECTIVE in both the treatment and prevention of COVID illness.
In the FDA’s view, ineffectiveness PLUS a well-documented risk of potential negative side effects equals WORSE THAN USELESS, when considering treatment options for the specific condition under consideration.
I happen to know it was. I happen to know of actual cases where it was used. I also happen to have read studies and reports of its use and effectiveness. Therefore, I know that Democrats opposed its use solely because Trump mentioned its effectiveness, much like the denounced the vaccines, preferring for people to suffer and die (and become fodder for their campaign of lies) than see them recover.
You expose your stupidity on the topic; it’s not used for the seriously ill. It’s used to prevent patients from becoming seriously ill. Without it, many cases progressed to the serious stage, which the Democrats loved.
Why don’t you just stick to the topics you know something about? Then you would show up here far, far less.
It was used by many people WHO WOULD HAVE RECOVERED WITHOUT IT. Which proves NOTHING.
You might as well conclude that anyone who took it and then died was killed by the stuff–which makes no more sense.
If that’s what sells ignorance in your head, go right ahead. Anyone that voted for that massive pile of stupid Biden would think nothing different. But, facts are facts and indeed, HCQ is an effective treatment. Proven overwhelmingly. Just as idiot Biden being an idiot is proven time and time again.
@ Greg, why did Fauchi in an email tell a relative to get HCQ for covid?Those emails that your propaganda outlets ignore.
I understand how stupid you feel taking a totally useless jab with unknown long term side effects.
“There’s a very good reason why people aren’t allowed to buy and use prescription medications however they want.”
Because then the Billionaire Pharmaceutical companies couldn’t make the billions it takes to install their preferred, and most profitable, candidates.
HCQ worked against Covid. It’s fact. It threatened profits from other companies who had a stake in making billions from a pandemic.
No, control is required because people would otherwise use powerful and often dangerous medications as they now do relatively benign nutritional substances, with widespread disastrous consequences. In the case of a great many relatively common prescription drugs, the area dividing useful or lifesaving and poisonous can be narrow.
Politics has clouded clarity of thought in many areas where it shouldn’t even be a consideration.
Like Floyd and his inventory of fentanyl.
@ Greg Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19 —
Perhaps you should watch the senate hearing on Ivermectin, the FDA and CDC have failed to provide consistant , reliable information. All day and night you see lawyers commercials on drugs approved. Heart inflamation and blood clots are just the two side effects from the jab that just began to charge 25% more for the
not effective poison.
Just learn to live with the kung flu just like colds and the seasonal flus. It isnt going away..ever.
We’re not talking about colds or seasonal flu. COVID has resulted in 617 thousand deaths in the United States in less than 20 months, and is once again on the rise.
@Greggie, 617K died with covid not from covid. Based on a test that is highly inaccurate for virus they havent isolated (a Canadian court finding) It is mutating like the flu and common cold and the vaccine doesnt keep you from getting the Kung Flu, doesnt even boost beyond natural immunity if you have recovered from it.
But the vax does cause clotting (Stroke) .
You lined right up and got your shot, good for you, lemming. You dont have any worries about catching anything. Just cause you jump off a bridge does not mean everyone should.
Vaccines are great, but I support the right of anyone to make their own decisions. Also, mandating vaccines regardless of personal status (already had the virus or too young) is idiotic. Of course, this totalitarian regime only cares about imposing their mandates, not public safety.
We still cannot trust any of the information put forth by this regime. THAT is possibly the greatest health threat itself.
Seems none were given cheap HCQ or Ivermectin treatments, while the drug companies are exempt from vaxx injury lawsuits.(1-800 bad jab?)
Why did obama promote a super spreader event?
Because he has enough influence in the Democrat party to be informed that all their fear mongering and control schemes is nothing but bullshit.
CDC Combines Multiple Days of Data into One to Make it Appear Florida is Reporting Record Number of New Daily Covid Cases
Mt. Vernon School Board Meeting – Dr. Dan Stock
Everything we are doing is wrong. Everything being recommended by the CDC is inconsistent with established Science and their own data. Masks are ineffective at preventing viral transmission, per the CDC’s and NIH’s own data.
We cannot make respiratory viruses disappear. They circulate all year, and they have animal reservoirs. Smallpox had no animal reservoirs.
Vaccination changes none of this. The current vaccine is causing anti-body mediated viral enhancement, which has happened for all coronaviruses.
Vaccines allow the virus to be come worse than it would with native infection.
75% of symptomatic COVID cases in Cape Cod were of fully-vaccinated individuals.
Therefore vaccinated and unvaccinated should be treated equally.
Vaccinated individuals are shedding virus. The vaccines don’t do exactly what you want them to do. These summer outbreaks are unusual, and being driven by the vaccinated. People who had COVID get no benefit at all from vaccination, and they get reactions to the vaccines at four to six times the previously uninfected.
Everything we are doing is wrong and unscientific.
