I've been hearing a lot of stories about people who are considered "recovered" from Covid-19 and yet are anything but. About the only positive thing that can be said is that they are alive and no longer contagious, but severe side effects and often very strange lingering debilitating symptoms continue. The fact is, no one seems to know why, what kind of issues these people might have in the future, and if these are issues that they will eventually recover from or just have to adjust their lives to.

With this strain of Coronavirus, we just don't know enough about it to make any generalizations. Some people are asymptomatic, others can die from contraction. One absolute fact is that it's a virus. You cannot kill viruses since they're never alive to begin with. All you can do is deactivate them. How this virus interacts with a person's body is dependent on the person. On symptomatic cases, it presents anything from flu-like symptoms to lack of taste to pain in the big toe on the left foot to extreme dislike of Polka music after drinking German beer. We're currently looking at 33-40% exposure rates and herd immunity starts at 50% so we're not even at that point yet. This will however change for the positive as we continue testing. More testing means more positive tests. What does drop however is the morbidity rate. Since the definition of what IS a covid-19 death is intentionally vague, we cannot establish what the actual morbidity rate is. So many MEs, coroners and states are reporting deaths as Covid-19 when there is no doubt that many of them are deaths of people WITH covid-19, not FROM Covid-19. Those are the numbers being reported along with false positives and even completely fabricated positive numbers. So no numerator and no denominators that can be trusted means the numbers don't mean squat.

Kinda like all the soldiers in Vietnam just died while in Vietnam.

The reality is that a covid-19 death has its own markers. Autopsies tell the tale: It doesn't look like death by other causes.

Provided they got autopsies. Most did not.

"Autopsies can help answer that question, but autopsy rates were low even pre-pandemic, Fowkes said. Even at Mount Sinai, a rare medical system that offers every family a chance to have their loved one autopsied for free, the rate of autopsy was only about 20% prior to the pandemic. According to NAME, there is an ongoing shortage of forensic pathologists working in the United States, with about 500 currently employed and a need for 1,200. Autopsies for COVID-19 can also be dangerous due to the infectious nature of the disease and ongoing shortages of personal protective equipment for pathologists. "

All are related to impaired lung function. Medical science has for a long time known what impaired lung functions cause. A lot of the problem is the free iron in your blood that Covid-19 strips out. Your body only has a few ways to deal with it. A lot of it gets deposited in the lungs. So now you have blood cells not working and lungs impaired.

The free iron is an oxidant that damages cell walls in your veins. This is where Zinc comes in, Zinc helps protect the cell walls. Vitamin C raises the acidic levels in the blood and helps break it down. Drugs like Hydroxychloroquine helps to protect the iron molecules from being stripped from the blood. None of this is a cure, it treats the symptoms and allows the body to keep up with the damage and possibly get ahead. The virus itself stays active until your own body can create an antibody

Now the debate on vitamins. So far to date, the best way for your body to get them is from natural sources. Pill type vitamins do not always work or get absorbed. Also, everybody's body doesn't react the same to pill type supplements.

After my motorcycle accident I was prescribed OsCal to help my bones mend, long story short, didn't work and milk was the other source and on it's own, wasn't doing the job. 5 months later, a dietician recommended Citracal D. Bone grown took of like a shot. So just how vitamins are formulated makes a difference for people.

Even when they come up with a vaccine, there are people who will not be able to take it due to allergies to egg. Egg is used to culture most vaccines.

I think a well-vitaminized body is the best. The body needs to get them from natural sources of the vitamin. Pill-like vitamins don't always work or get absorbed.

When my Mother, 93 years old, went to the hospital for unrelated problems and tested positive for COVID-19 she was asymptomatic. Two days ago she went back into the hospital, again for an unrelated problem, and while she now tested negative for the virus I was told that she had some pneumonia like lung issues that may have been a persistent side effect from the virus. This lung issue is something that never showed up while she was in the hospital the first time.

I think in a couple of years when this is all over and done with we'll be seeing a lot of people in their 30's and 40's walking around with the oxygen machines they market to seniors.

A lot of people who 'beat' Covid have permanently damaged respiratory systems and are going to be mainly sedentary for the rest of their lives.

I think you might very well be right. Just as there were thousands after the Civil War missing limbs, and thousands after Polio in leg braces, we could very well see a similar visually obvious impact to our society after this.
