We live in a world where nothing can be trusted, and it has been proven beyond a doubt that we especially cannot trust the MSM. Even if we had solid statistics for Covid-19, which we don't yet have, it's extremely easy to manipulate any numbers to ones own advantage. That is why I think it's very important to use our own eyes and our own experience to judge facts for ourselves. The MSM fearmongering is convincing some people that Covid-19 is comparable to the Spanish flu and there's a very high chance of fatality if you get it.

I'm fairly surprised no one has created a thread like this yet so I decided to do it myself. What I did was search for videos of people describing their symptoms, and in nearly every video I watched they described it as comparable to a common flu. There are even some quite old people in their 70's who had very mild symptoms. Some people didn't have any symptoms at all and didn't even realize they had it until they were tested. The first quote by Chris Cuomo isn't altered or cut together in any way, that is literally the string of words that came out of his mouth. He's fine but trust him you don't want it.


Chris Cuomo:
"Now look, I feel fine, I'm able to do the show. You do not want this."


Dr Marta Dell'Aringa:
"It's mild in 80% of cases and people shouldn't be panicking about it ... I just felt exhausted, as if I was developing the flu."


Elizabeth Schneider:
"I thought it was a flu honestly ... several of my friends who fell sick went to their doctors. Their doctors thought they just had the flu."


Rand Paul (reporter speaking):
"He's also considered higher risk because of that lung injury stemming from the attack by his former neighbor. Rand Paul said he hasn't had any symptoms of the illness."


Miami Mayor Francis Suarez:
"I actually feel well, having some mild symptoms, cold-like symptoms, but otherwise feeling very well, very healthy. Been working pretty much all day."


UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock:
"Fortunately for me the symptoms so far have been very mild so I've been able to carry on with the work driving forward the UK response."


Sheriff Armando B. Fontoura (reporter speaking):
"Fontoura who is 76 says his symptoms are mild but he's worried about his wife" (he says his wife has very serious health issues).


Bridget Wilkins:
"It felt like a bit of a con to be honest, we had to walk into hospital feeling fairly healthy yet everyone's in hazmat suits."


Idris Elba:
"I didn't have any symptoms. I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who had also tested positive."


Boris Johnson:
Doesn't really say anything about his symptoms but looks mostly fine apart from the hair, but I think that's normal lol.

Lastly, I don't think Tom Hanks made any videos about it but he posted this on social media: "We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too."

I called it as soon as I heard the news. There is/was no way the machine was ever going to NOT use Chris Cuomo's illness for "reasons" and ratings. It will be used to rally the troops, for better and worse.

May the golden apple give us the strength to know the difference.

Doesn’t seem the cv virus caused anyone to require excessive amounts of toilet paper as assumed
I bet toilet paper will be pretty cheap in the coming months ahead as oversupply is used up

No diarrhoea to mention, funny that

Biggest symptom that could be eliminated easily is ban celebrities from making pity party videos about all their mild symptoms.

i live in new jersey and have a very different experience. i know at least 10 people close to me that are sick. Only one was able to get the test due to the limited availability. He tested positive and is currently in the hospital and may die. He is on a ventilator. My husband has been sick for over 2 weeks. Cannot get test because he doesn't have a fever. Symptoms are very different than the flu or a cold. Extreme weakness, dry cough, on and off chills, no appetite, lack of taste and smell, rapid weight loss and extreme shortness of breath. The biggest difference from the cold or flu is that you dont feel better after a few days. It seems to take 2-3 weeks. You also do not have any congestion with this virus. I believe the numbers are way under reported in our area due to limited availability of testing kits. My aunt and 3 sister in laws all have similar symptoms and are not able to get tested either. The doctors tell them to stay home till you feel better and keep hydrated. that is the only advise we are getting a reply to: ChaoticOrder

Even if we had solid statistics for Covid-19, which we don't yet have


...and we'll probably NEVER know the true statistics, because we will NEVER know how many thousands of people, back in December, January and February, who caught this virus and recovered from it with no or very mild symptoms. People who never were even tested, because they all thought they had the seasonal flu, or a bad cold.

The scientists and media are reporting statistics based on those who were tested, similar to the data included in this article:


in a report from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention that included approximately 44,500 confirmed infections with an estimation of disease severity [43]: Mild (no or mild pneumonia) was reported in 81 percent.

www.uptodate.com...

The percentage stated in the above article could even be higher, if we tested everyone who came down with this virus and that simply can't be done.

My wife and both of my college aged kids came down with sore throats and a bad cough back in early February. We thought our son had bronchitis, because you could hear that he had mucus in his lungs every time he coughed. After several weeks he eventually got better, as did my wife and daughter. Could this have been Covid-19? Who knows, but if it was, this data will never be included in any clinical study on COVID-19. How many thousands of cases worldwide were never documented?

Extreme weakness, dry cough, on and off chills, no appetite, lack of taste and smell, rapid weight loss and extreme shortness of breath.

If you don't mind me asking how old is the guy in hospital and how old is your husband, and do either of them have pre-existing conditions? It sounds like they were in the 20% who don't have mild symptoms, which is typically a result of pre-existing respiratory issues or other illnesses. Also, weakness, cough, chills, loss of appetite, and trouble breathing are all common symptoms of the flu. Not sure about the lack of taste and smell though, seems like a fairly unique symptom and not something other Covid-19 patients are describing.

As for the recovery time, some of these people recovered in two days, others took nearly two weeks to be fully recovered. But not being better after 2 weeks seems fairly concerning to me, your husband should probably be taken to the hospital at this point if he's still not better, especially if he doesn't just have mild symptoms. I doubt they would turn you away if you explain the situation. The lack of tests available is really concerning, and it's making any statistical analysis virtually impossible. Considering that some people have no symptoms and many others just think they have the flu, there is likely to be a massive number of undiagnosed cases.

my friend, who was hospitalized. is 85. I know your point, he is old. But a healthy 85 before he got sick. My husband is 59 and very healthy no preexisting. My husband said he has never felt this sick in his life and he said it feels totally different then the flu. My aunt and sister in laws said they all have the same symptoms. Loss of taste is prevalent. My doctor said it is pretty typical for corona to last weeks and there really is no treatment unless you are dying so it is best to stay home. i agree with you, i feel a lot of people are probably positive with no symptoms. I am probably one of them since there is no way i didnt get infected with all the germs flying around in my house a reply to: ChaoticOrder

A lack of testing and people with no symptoms does make the statistics look more frightening, and those aren't the only problems. The way the numbers are reported and recorded for CV19 are also different to most other common viruses like the flu, which makes comparisons very difficult. When a person dies with the flu but has a serious pre-existing condition they typically aren't recorded as having died from the flu, at least not in the US according to the CDC. Despite the average fatality age of Covid-19 being around 70 or 80 and the vast majority of victims having pre-existing conditions, every single person who dies with Covid-19 is recorded as part of the Covid-19 death statistics, regardless of what underlying condition really killed them.


But in line with other studies, the researchers found that the majority of fatalities are among adults who were age 80 or older.

“There might be outlying cases that get a lot of media attention, but our analysis very clearly shows that at aged 50 and over, hospitalization is much more likely than in those under 50, and a greater proportion of cases are likely to be fatal,” Azra Ghani, a professor at Imperial College London and an author of the study, said in a statement.

Coronavirus death rate much lower than previously reported, study says

I'm not really trying to make a point, just want to get down the facts of the situation. Obviously older people are going to be hit the hardest, and that's why I've been saying older people certainly should self-isolate, but we cannot risk a global economic collapse over something that barely affects the majority of younger people. 99% of the time when I hear about another CV19 death it's someone over 70, and while it is sad for anyone to die regardless of their age, it's dangerous to let our emotions override all sense of rationality in a situation like this. Fearmongering and over-hyping the threat doesn't help anyone, and many more old people will die if the economy collapses or people start fighting over basic necessities.


My doctor said it is pretty typical for corona to last weeks and there really is no treatment unless you are dying so it is best to stay home.

6 to 10 days seems fairly typical from reports I've seen, any more than 2 weeks seems a bit concerning. If he's still sick in a few days you should definitely do something, at least the hospital will be able to closely monitor his situation and take good care of him if things get any worse. He definitely should not be that sick for that long if he was healthy and had no pre-existing conditions.

Talk about an uninformed doctor.
If I was that sick I would demand high dose zinc sulfate, hydroxychloroquine and azithromysin (sp). Better than suddenly dropping dead after 2 weeks.

Does no one not remember what Tdawg posted about the 2 different viruses? You know the one that was a bioweapon and the one that was sent out to cover it up? Everything he had said has came true, so why would anyone think this is not true? People will have different symptoms from one another, especially with one being a bioweapon, correct?

I realize that we don't really know the stats yet for Covid19 but we know that the severity of Covid19 illness is very dependant on the initial viral load.

We need to hear more stories about the survivors. We also need an antibody test because I'm sure there are many of who have had it and didn't even realize. That will go a long way to figuring out the actual mortality rate.

Also, side tangent: the high death rates from Spanish Flu are now believed to be from the subsequent opportunistic bacterial pneumonia people caught once their immune system was down from the influenza.

So even today if the Spanish Flu arrived it wouldn't be anywhere near as deadly because we have antibiotics.

This fear is why many that have a bad case of Covid19 are given azithromycin when this isn't a bacterial infection.

That is why the antibody test is going to be crucial. It will tell us who has had it and recovered.

I'm requesting nebulized Heparin and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) along with Leronlimab should that not work.

I plan on being as demanding as my lungs allow.

Actually, this is now defined as a new symptom that many even most are experiencing, they apparently just didn't notice or report it...

Absence of symptoms does not equal healthy.

Most people are just over the border of experiencing symptoms. Meaning, very unhealthy, just can't tell.

Major deficiencies in D/K, Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, Potassium are the reason most people that get hit hard are getting hit hard.

If I were to get hit hard, I'd be demanding (not requesting - Right to Try law) high dose IV Vitamin C. I'll also be taking my supplements.

But since I've been supplementing extra (especially with C) for many weeks now, I'm not worried about getting it - although I am worried about being a carrier and giving it to my parents (so we've basically stopped visiting for the time being). They hate not being able to see the kids.

Yes, good point. IV of Vitamin C while nebulizing. I'm putting that on my doctor's orders.

I'm with you. I've been self isolating since the 3rd of March when I went out to get my last few supplies and fill up all my vehicles just in case. Now I'm probably looking at another 3 weeks at least. Fun! I'm hoping by the time I get this they have a better protocol so we don't have demand things that appear to be working and at the very least aren't going to kill you even if they aren't working. Besides it's cheap! What are they waiting for?
