On the fence about the whole truth about Covid-19

    God said,
    Isaiah 41:10
    Fear not, for I am with you;
    Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you,
    Yes, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

    If the virus is so hazardous where's all the Biohazard disposal bins for all the billions of masks & gloves we dispose of? Saw a bin overflowing in a parking lot with some gloves blowing around. Trash always finds it way into our waterways and oceans.

    The media & the Governments declare that we must wear masks, gloves, etc. They're so "concerned about us & our wellbeing". I feel like we're all magically numb and so trusting. Maybe we're socially conditioned to just believe everything we're fed about the true current world's status. Junk food, crops sprayed with harmful chemicals, alcohol, and cigarettes kill millions per year, yet it's legal. That's ok? I can put all that in my mouth and 'swallow' it, but I must cover my face with a mask for my protection.

    One of the countless head-spinning mysteries of this whole Corona Situation has been the advent of famous people, from Tom Hanks and his wife, Sophie Trudeau & Prince Charles announcing they had “tested positive” for COVID-19 and were self-quarantining. The British Royals, especially, seemed to contradict their ethos of secrecy in this case. So what did it mean? It signaled, if anything, that COVID-19 is not all that deadly. That the virus can be present without causing the disease. In all these famous people cases, the symptoms were either non-existent or mild. What does it mean to test positive? What if we're being duped by the media. Is this socially created to so how obedient we are?

    Globalists love to weaponize words and make spells out of them. Hypnotics. To this end, they invent new words and force you to use them and live them. Words like “Corona Virus,” and “Social Distancing.” “COVID-19.” “Tested Positive.” It all feels like brainwashing and training.

    Fortunately for the garbage flying around, a virus only lives days when it is away from a nourishing breathing host, before returning to that great test lab in the sky where grandma and grampa virus stand by the cottage fence waving their hankies as their deceased spawn return to them..

    In case you're reaching into the trash to touch the discarded masks, it's fine. The virus will eventually die on exposed surfaces.

    I guess they weren't old or in fragile health. On a brighter note at around 500,000 deaths globally, we still haven't caught up to the 600,000 deaths from the flu globally last year.

    Ugh, don't say that too loud. It will become the obnoxious next anti-mask antic.

    I rubbed my face with used COVID PPE and I didn't catch it! Checkmate, somebody.

    I have some neighbors who had Covid-19. For the mother, I believe it was similar to a bad cold. The daughter didn't have any symptoms at all, if I recall. The father, however, ended up on a ventilator for a full month. He's fortunately one of the lucky ones who survived, but he was in the hospital and the rehabilitation for about 3.5 months in total.

    Statistically speaking, if you're healthy, you're unlikely to have serious issues with the virus (though you could still be one of the unlucky ones, end up with a cytokine storm, and die). Masks are largely meant to protect other people from you if you unknowingly have it, since the more it spreads, the more people are going to end up in the ICU with it.

    Please take this thing seriously. If you're not going to trust the media, at least trust people who were in the early epicenters: it's very much real.

    Therein lies the problem, especially for those with ME/CFS or aids, where ventilators will kill them faster than the virus.

    OED: The coronaviruses themselves (so-called because they resemble the solar corona) were first described as long ago as 1968 in a paper in Nature, but before 2020 few people had heard of the term beyond the scientists studying them.

    I would like to know if its true that the coronavirus is causing permanent lung damage even to young, healthy people

    Theres so much information out there i feel its impossible to be sure about anything in regards to the virus

    I think there's a thin line between globalizing, or weaponizing the virus, and reality

    There are alot of things that dont make sense but i would personally recommend staying on the cautious side because it does seem to effect the elderly the most and it would cause me great pain knowing my carelessness resulted in the death of someones grand parent

    Just my two cents. I see the bible and politics as being opposites. I cant fully believe anything the republicans or democrats tell me about the virus

    But Gods word is as solid as a rock. So at least we as Christians have that

    Can't we just carry a sign that reads "UNCLEAN"?
    I don't know which is more dehumanizing, a mask or such a sign.

    Why not err on the side of caution? I would rather wear a mask, social distance, wash my hands, and refrain from picking my nose even though it might not be as bad as most say, than ignore the precautions and fatally infect someone I love (or perhaps, someone I don't even know) simply because I was careless, or had doubts, or didn't want my freedoms infringed upon.

    We have this opportunity to love our neighbours as ourselves in a very concrete way, and yet we want to refrain just in case we're being duped. Yes, there is a lot of conflicting information out there, which means making a decision and acting on it is a risk. I say, err on the side of love. You can't be faulted for love, even if it was more than was needed.

    No tangible scientific evidence that mask protect those who are vulnerable. A reduction is the best they have and what seems to have captivated everyone, a reduction. Turns out one Dr pointed out yesterday a mask makes it a living hazard for the healthy who may be reintroducing C-19 droplets into those vulnerable nasal passageways just by wearing a mask.

    Why do you view a mask as dehumanizing?

    I understand that it's not part of our culture to wear masks, so it's tricky to get used to them. I wasn't thrilled about it at first, but here it's basically just turned into a fashion accessory.

    Yer sure about that? For a time, then a flood of studies brought a whole new approach to driving. Unless your citing spikes when they lift the ordinance for wearing them?

    A friend of mine, in his late 30s, was hospitalised with COVID-19 in April. He spent eight days on a ventilator and nearly 20 days in hospital total.

    He now has scarring on his lungs and may have permanent shortness of breath.

    This was a very fit man with no prior medical issues. Before the onset of the virus, we were both training for a marathon in early July (now cancelled).
