See, there is the dismissal-of-issue porn, so these other things as you posted are needed to balance it out.
First you need to prove there is an actual issue.... which has not been done to my satisfaction.

Yes it's real.... so is TB.... where are the TB lockdowns?

If they don't die of Covid, they will die if something else, eventually.

If TB was as infectious and quick acting... but I have never even known anyone who has had TB.

And yet from what I remember it is the biggest natural killer in SA..... it spreads the same way (aerosol) as C19.... kills in much the same way..... is actually basically just as infectious as C19 now that the droplets theory has finally been disproven.

C19 still only kills an extreme minority of infected..... and usually they die from things that would have killed them anyway.

Even if C19 kills more people than TB which I doubt.... it's not that much more that it becomes an existential threat.

Reinfections is a myth, you are more likely to get re-infected with TB than with C19.

Vaccines are not necessary, there are other treatments that if given early enough are more than effective..... and if your co-morbidity is advanced enough you would have died from a bad flu anyway.

This is not the crisis everyone wants it to be.... it's a repeat of the swine flu hoax.

You are aware that they vaccinate against TB?

Not a very good idea to call BS on Covid-19 and its vaccination whilst using TB, when at-risk countries vaccinate against TB.

I may have some feedback regarding this tomorrow, my fiancé has gone for a PCR test as we were exposed this last Sunday and she isn't feeling 100%, she had a positive PCR test last year July.

Just ping us when you get it so that you can give us a first hand account of what you think of it.

I have had a lot of diseases in my life, nothing has compared to this.

PCR tests do not prove infection.... they are abused by first over zooming and then inflating the results (I might remember the exact process wrong).... then any indication of any prior interaction with the virus is marked as current infection..... it's a scam.

Well if we don't have enough beds or oxygen. Just bring more in.
