Bingo. But I would say that if you're not feeling good, avoid going out in public just like you'd do if you had the flu. Nobody gets out and runs errands when they've got the flu, just like nobody gets out and runs errands when they've got Hironovirus.

Well, I've been going to work everyday, doing normal shopping, heck even took a trip to Michigan and to Myrtle Beach. So far no COVID. I do wear a mask where it's required, and nowhere else. I don't personally know a single person who has admitted to having it. I'm not saying it's a hoax, I'm sure it's a real flu. If it weren't for the news and the shut down I would have no idea there was a pandemic going on.


Same here. My wife loves to shop at a certain Walmart (the only nice one within 4 Parishes) so I'll wear a mask inside and then take it off. Once inside, hardly anyone is seen wearing one. There's no outbreaks, and our numbers are very low. Like you, I'd have no idea this damn thing even existed if it weren't for the democrats trying to instill fear in Americans and blame it all on Trump, which - ironically - has backfired on them.

Fear causes the immune system to over react some times. That is why if a person is sick, having someone to take their mind off of their illness in the hospital is good therapy, a relative or friends visiting helps to reduce the risk of a very bad case of anything. But sometimes the person just needs rest, which also is good too.

I won't go to the hospital if I get Covid, I will just stay home and use some of the stuff I know that fights the disease. If it gets bad, then maybe I will talk to the doctor about one of the new medicines he recommends but will research the med before taking it. I know how my body works pretty much, I do not want to take a med that causes it to malfunction and I am intolerant to many meds long term, but very few of them used for up to a week. I understand all meds are toxic to some degree, and understand that all meds can have side effects. It is whether the side effect is worse than the condition you have that is my concern. I don't mind mild side effects or even a more severe one if trying to kick out a bad microbe if the med is only taken for a short period of time. But I won't take long term meds anymore, I have had horrible results with them causing major problems.

The riskiest activities are going to places where a bunch of people might be infected, like hospitals and doctors offices.
I have caught things from sitting in doctors offices with a bunch of sick people quite a few times over the years, I learned twenty years ago to stay out of those places. I would bring my mother to appointments she really didn't need and both of us would wind up sick. Bringing old people to the doctors is something I did quite a bit of before, not anymore, I want to stay as far away as I can from doctors offices if I can. Of course, I had to bring my grandkids and wife to the ER or doctors four times since covid got bad, but I will do it if I know it is necessary to do so.

Visiting small businesses is by far the most deadly, be sure to only buy your goods at big box stores and Amazon.

Exactly. Common sense.

Really, the riskiest behaviour is anything you wouldn't do during any other flu season. Licking door handles, snogging everyone you meet, picking your nose after you've touched someone's hand after they coughed in it.

Anything else ain't dangerous. I as a vulnerable person have not been wearing any masks, have been mingling with lots of family who are working in places with lots of other vulnerable people. None of our family has come down with anything, I haven't, I still don't know anyone who has, not even a friend of a friend or anyone of any of my online friends from around the world.

I agree with everyone here who said that the lockdown and the masks are the most dangerous things. Far more dangerous than the little corona virus [No.37 out of 36]. It is getting so bad that my sense of justice is exploding. How can people just accept this crap?
I hate it when family or friends are just shrugging their shoulders and keep saying things like "what can you do?" or "That's what we have to do" etc.
I already lost a best friend because of this. These are real worries, not getting ill or catching pneumonia [like every frigging year].

I humbly submit: if you test positive, stay away from 5g towers.

It is ATS, afterall, and I do believe 5g has something to do with it. In our neck of the woods, the bubble of deaths is closer to the towers.

Does pulling down your mask so you can cough into your hand count as risky behavior?

Is there any scientific consensus on which activities are riskiest when it comes to Covid transmission?

For example, do a lot of infections occur on the metro or other mass transit?

Is it more dangerous to be in the audience of a play than it is to eat in a restaurant?

Are you more likely to catch covid from friend visiting your home, or from a classmate in college?

How risky is shaking hands?

Are there at least some statistics to say that X percentage of covid can be linked to somebody doing Y?

Or are we still gathering the numbers and haven't figured any of this stuff out?

Serious answers only please, I'm not interested in our political opinions.


Some doctors in Europe have developed an opinion...

Lol ! Yurbad !
Not even a /sarc warning. LoL !

Some low risk activities for the whole family, include protesting and rioting, and hanging around elementary schools seems like a good idea suddenly...

You see, how do they know it was covid-19?
It could have been any other corona virus or pneumonia. If they fell ill, how do we know it was covid, when we can't even test for it yet?
Maybe they had a corona virus or maybe not. Maybe they just had a bad cold or some other viral infection?
I mean they can say to any pneumonia case or any flu or any other virus 'it's covid'. Did all other viruses suddenly disappear?

There usually something going round starting this season, that's what happens almost every year, normally it's called flu season. If from now on every flu symptom is specifically only covid-19, then we have found a cure for all the other corona viruses, because they sure must have been wiped from the Earth. yay!

A Lesson From the Spanish Flu: Sunshine and Fresh Air are Our Best Friends Right Now


Thank you for posting -- very interesting!

Records from the H1N1 “Spanish flu” pandemic of 1918-1919 suggest sunshine and fresh air were among the most helpful therapies in stopping the spread of the illness and reducing mortality rates of those who had it.

“Put simply, medics found that severely ill flu patients nursed outdoors recovered better than those treated indoors,” writes Dr. Richard Hobday, an infection control and public health researcher.


Open-air therapy remained popular until antibiotics replaced it in the 1950s.

In the 1960s, tests by Ministry of Defense scientists proved that fresh air is a natural disinfectant. “Something in it, which they called the Open Air Factor, is far more harmful to airborne viruses and bacteria than indoor air,” Hobday said.



So if you are wearing that face diaper outside while you are walking, you are making yourself weaker and doing yourself a disservice.

Yeah, pretty much. And that's whether you are infectious or not. You may not be a threat to anyone. But the mask is a threat to you.
