Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Autopsies on 27 people with COVID-19 have found the coronavirus not only in the lungs, but also in the kidneys, liver, heart, brain and blood. By scrutinizing databases of genetic activity, researchers also found that three genes known to encourage SARS-CoV-2 infection are highly active in kidney cells. Additional analysis of six people detected virus in all examined kidney compartments, which helps to explain the kidney damage seen in some people with the illness.

As we discussed in a previous post, even if Covid doesnt kill you, you can come out of it disabled for the rest of your life.

Most media outlets suggest die, or recover. Oh no, Mouskateers, it aint like that at all. Many 'survivors' will be permantly disabled.

Roll the dice on a premature 'Open' if you like. But who will take care of you when you are not able to work?

How's that Republican Health Insurance lookin to you? You know, the one that isnt even on the drawing board while Trump agressively works to destroy the ACA.

This bug is a bad emeffer.

They don't care. They want their freedumb. Haircuts,working out,hookin'up. Dumb stuff compared to death or permanent disability with bad or no, health care.

America is so dumb, we deserve what we get.

Sheep led by TV shows and slogans screaming about our freeeeddomm.

Most Americans don't even know what that really is.

@#2 ... This bug is a bad emeffer. ...

Yes, it is.

For the past couple of weeks in the New York City area, I've seen on the local news that the virus is doing something to children.

COVID-19 and a serious inflammatory syndrome in children: Unpacking recent warnings
discoveries.childrenshospital.org

...On April 27, an alert circulated from the U.K. about multi-system inflammatory disease in children with COVID-19, based on a small rise in the number of critically ill children with this illness in England. Picked up by multiple media outlets, the alert cited features of toxic shock syndrome and incomplete Kawasaki disease, with some children experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms and cardiac inflammation. The New York City health department soon followed with its own alert.

The CDC is now calling this emerging syndrome "multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C)." On May 2, the International PICU-COVID-19 Collaboration, coordinated by Jeffrey Burns, MD, MPH, chief of Critical Care Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital, convened a Zoom conference to compare notes. Pediatric experts in intensive care, cardiology, rheumatology, infectious disease, and Kawasaki disease reviewed data from several dozen cases in Europe and the U.S., offered guidance for clinicians, and laid out an agenda for research....

Scarecrow and Tin Man are screwed I guess.
On the other hand, Lion should be fine.
He's merely a coward, just like our President.

Without reading the entire story, Covid has also shown up in the gastrointestinal system as well. The above pathologies are one of the reasons why we should really be reporting the number of deaths over average (as measured year-to-year) instead of just confirmed Covid-tested positive deaths.

Many heart attacks, pneumonias, kidney failures and sundry other fatal ailments listed on death certificates may very well have been exacerbated by the Covid virus.

As one expert said today, right now we're only in the 2nd inning. Gonna be a long game, too bad many people aren't taking it as seriously as they should.

Reports about the seriousness of this virus continue to worsen.

I can't help but think this country is in for learning its lessons with this pandemic the hard way, what with so many people refusing to wear masks and businesses afraid of requiring them for fear of offending some while alienating customers who'd shop if they felt safe.

And if I'm wrong about the tough road ahead due to COVID-19, I will never be so happy to be wrong.

Among recently release data is that 35% of people so far who've tested positive for COVID-19 have been asymptomatic.

We've only administered a number of tests equal to 4% of the U.S. population (12m). 600,000 who've tested positive were asymptomatic. Extrapolate that among the wider U.S. population and it's pretty clear there are millions of COVID-19 carriers out there who are completely unaware they're passing it on.

How does it make sense to be opening anywhere crowds will gather?

Especially 'pro-life' evangelical churches?

Oh, so it's just like the flu. Thanks for that breakthrough research that many scientists have already proven a month ago. Good job!

Umm, since that's pretty much the exact opposite of what the article says, you are either a) a liar or b) stupid.
