My friends moms colleague died last week and her husband died on the weekend. The son who is 15 had to watch him pass on from the hospital window

Why would you believe that? Surely getting the flu shot doesn't keep you from infection with the flu, just lessens its effect (in most cases anyway).Now here is a thought. I wonder if there is a correlation between people who expose themselves yearly to a flu vaccine and the severity of Covid 19?
In other words those of us who have avoided flu vaccines have in general, a much better "natural immunity" to SARS COV 2 and can thus fight of this virus without being hospitalised and die?
I am almost tempted to go and get a test done to see if I and my wife have been infected with this virus, given that both of us have not had flu vaccines in many many years as a result of our allergic reaction to vaccines.
Eish, sterkte broer, sterkte.My Boertjie neighbour had to shoot down to The Cape to watch is old man kick the bucket last night from C19, his sister was taken off the Ventilator as there is nothing they can do for her, he is expecting her to go any moment....
We do indeed live in the darkest of times.
Another guy I know in town is stuck on a Ventilator at the local hospital and my neighbour across the road is still bedridden with nightly sweats going on two weeks now.....
I can go back to work on Saturday as I am well on the way to recovery..... The English HO is allowed back a day after me.....
Bring on those antibodies bitches!
This is what bothers me about this thing....so damn random.I lost another family member last night.
Sad thing is he was in his early 30's and had no comorbidities.
I'll read this but scanning the doc it is obvious that panda have a preferred view.This article by Marc Girardot takes a deep dive into the issue of natural immunity and Covid-19 vaccination, with evidence to back it up.www.biznews.com
My theory is some older people have a better prepared natural immunity to this thing than many younger people who probably have had flu vaccines.is there any data on variability of disease within families? i.e. if siblings get COVID, do they have similar responses to it or experience similar severity of disease? I guess the same would apply to 1 parent - like is there a genetic factor involved? You get the impression that there must be if people in there 20's are getting hit so hard, and others like my aunt who are well into their 70's just had a bit of a cold at home following a positive test.
For me this schit makes no sense.is there any data on variability of disease within families? i.e. if siblings get COVID, do they have similar responses to it or experience similar severity of disease?

I lost my mother in April due to complications from COVID. She had a triple bypass a few years ago so wee always knew she was extra high risk. My father who's a drunk is constantly roaming up and down going to friends daily and is too stubborn to wear a mask. He hasn't even had a single symptom to date. He also has diabetes.
My cousin (father's sister's son) who I posted about a few pages ago, was in his 30's and healthy as **** got his results back on Friday morning. By lunchtime he was rushed to ICU. By Friday night he was dead.
So yeah, it's like this virus is killing indiscriminately.
Underlying and undiagnosed co-morbidities. General young healthy people are unaware that something congenital is lurking, precisely because they are young and healthy. The lazy, fat, unhealthy bastards are well aware of what is wrong with them.Its so strange, but there must be a reason behind why it affects some people so badly. I've heard multiple stories of young, ultra-healthy people getting killed by COVID....
Curious: less people are dying now, according to the official numbers, than have died during previous waves, and we have more infections that ever.
That said, it looks like more people know of people who know of people who have died, compared to be before. I wonder why that is?
