Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Scientists have confirmed the first case of coronavirus reinfection in the United States: a 25-year-old Nevada man whose second round of the virus was more severe than the first. The findings were published Monday in the medical journal The Lancet. The researchers sequenced the RNA from both virus samples and found they were two different strains, making it a true reinfection.

The man, who remains unnamed, first tested positive in April before recovering and testing negative in May. Then in June, he tested positive for the virus again, developing symptoms of COVID-19 a second time.

Scientists have not concluded why someone might contract the virus twice or if some people are more predisposed to reinfection. The Nevada case marks the fifth case globally of reinfection, and scientists say so far that such instances are rare.

I'll leave it for our resident scientists to opine on the facts of this case, but perhaps someone should inform our current President that there is at least a chance that he is not "immune" after all.

But Dunce Trump claims he's immune. You can't teach Republicans because they think they can bend science to their will. Sorry dumbasses, it just doesn't work that way.

I doubt Lyin Donny the Immune will visit COVID patients to prove his immunity.

I am beginning to doubt he even had it.

I can't find an article verifying it, but apparently there are five people in the US who are confirmed to have contracted COVID twice. Tim Farley was talking about it on XM POTUS this afternoon.

The accurate information is right above your post. There are 5 confirmed global cases of reinfection.

The case study was first sent to The Lancet in August, but it was officially published and the case was confirmed as the first U.S. reinfection this week.

Me too. He probably had some cold symptoms and didn't want to test with the nasal swab so they gave him a "positive" due to contact with Hope Hicks. It would explain why his Dr has always been so vague.

That thought has occurred to many of us. The fact that his doctors all had to sign non-disclosure agreements sort of adds to the theory. But hey, we sure stopped talking about his tax returns so it worked.

Trump's visible symptoms of Trump's labored breath and coughing pretty much confirmed that he has Covid, as did the disclosure of the drug cocktail he was given. Doctors would lose their licenses for fabricating medical information about non-existent treatment, not to mention we have the independent confirmation of all the other covid infections that happened in and around Trump.

Sometimes things are exactly as they appear to be.

An obese 74 year old out of breath after climbing more stairs in one shot than the past four years would have no other explanation than COVID.

I'm not saying they dont exist. There are alot of people who want act like they are the opposite gender.

Hey Boaz.

Don't be a POS.

Transgender people exist. They don't require your acceptance, approval or acknowledgment. They don't need anything from you.

You need to stop going out of your way in attempts to make other people's lives miserable.

Transgender Americans are extremely brave people for accepting the challenge of loving themselves and living their best lives.

Don't be a POS.

I don't understand the premise - didn't most people who were infected in December already develop antibodies that don't work on new strains? Isn't that how this has been developing?!

No, it doesn't confirm anything.

On the balcony, a 74 year old fat man had just walked from the helicopter and climbed a couple of flights of stairs. I hope you're doing so well when you are 74. This is of course anecdotal, but I personally have a chronic dry cough as a side effect of certain medication. I know a lot of people who suffer a variety of allergies. A cough by itself is meaningless.

Anything else, Dr. Tony?

I don't know. I assume it's due to anger, misinformation and frustration.

and say a man is a woman,

You're not saying a man is a woman. You're respecting someone else. By accepting them for who they tell you they are.

when we know that's not the case?

Boaz. You don't know. The human brain is more complicated that a computer program. We're not 1s and 0s.

During development in the uterus a lot of things can happen due to hormones and genetics.

Mutations are ever present in our DNA. Blue eyes, left handedness, homosexuality, hermaphroditism, autism, etc... are all genetic mutations in our genes.

It's completely acceptable and believable that one such genetic mutation is one in which the person is born one gender but is mentally the opposite gender.

It's completely within the realm of reasonable possibilities.

This isn't something that requires anyone else's approval. This isn't a liberal agenda. This is me saying, be a good person and accept the fact that there's a lot we don't know. This is me saying, treat others the way you'd want them to treat you.

It doesn't take any effort on your part to allow others to live their lives.

It takes a lot of energy to be angry and hate.

How are you spending your energy?

To an extent I agree Clown, however there is no possible way that 60% of my kids school mates are gay or trans. It is the new *in* thing to be "pansexual" around here and I dont understand it. If you are attracted to the same sex - fine, and great that you can come out and admit who you are, I will support that. But these 14 year olds around here are seemingly doing it for the attention. Do you think it is possible that in a middle school of just over 500 kids there would be hundreds of students that identify as LGBT+? I'm open minded but that seems like a really high rate. Also, what is the difference being pansexual or bisexual?

You saying I hate is just an easy way for trans people to try and bully acceptance.

Boaz, you are the most hateful person on this site anymore. Why does it matter to you if it is a lie? It has absolutely no bearing on your life unless it is because Trump is just attracted to beautiful right? He is just drawn to it like a magnet, he just starts kissing, and how would you know it is a man until you grab the p***y?

What's there to accept?

We're not talking about Santa Claus or the Illuminati.

We're talking about hundreds of thousands of people, across the planet, who are saying they all are experiencing the same thing.

That their physical self and their mental self do not align.

Their existence doesn't affect your life.

Don't use your life to make their existence worse.

#22 - Even seeing first hand the natural state you refuse it. Partnerships have always been based mainly on groupings. From what I read sexuality doesn't really change much, but the pairing opportunities are more and more available.

And yes, maybe to spite your generation, but it's probably more about bonding than the gender assignment.

On topic - is Covid "one" infection or does this activate as a secondary organism upon prior infectious data - like how Pokeman "evolve" into more dangerous variations? Healthcare workers are probably the most dangerous points of contact imaginable for accessing all kinds of infectious people, I wonder if they have already "caught them all" and once the right variant finds them can evolve into MegaRona?

I've said that, Clown.

They want to be the other sex. I understand that. But they arent the other sex..ok, I get it..

But then, they play dress up. Ok.. Fine.

But it still doesnt change the FACT of what they were when they were born.

That will NEVER change, that truth will NEVER change, no matter how many drugs or body modifications they do..

#27 - playing dress-up!? Dude, you have no idea what gender identity is - literally. You must watch a season - yes, the entire season twelve of RuPaul's Drag Race. Hate it. Go ahead. How are those contestants not women during the competition?

Sexuality aside it's the gender identity that is flourishing. Womanhood isn't just ovaries - it's also about feminine empowerment for any gender. TRUTH.

Because they still have penises.

They are men over exaggerating female characteristics.

They are gay men. Period.

Wow. So you are trying to diminish the one singular thing women have over men that separates the sexes, the ability to bear life...

Wow...

A man can never be a woman. Never.

And vice versa..

No doubt. What percentage of yourself would you consider feminine versus masculine?

Why does a male possess any femininity whatsoever? Is gender specific to that quality?

BOAZ should be more concerned with the topic of this thread:

A 25 year old man caught COVID again and experienced more severe symptoms.

Anything not to talk about Trump and what an egregious, horrible, death-causing job he's done and continues to do. Still holding large rallies where mask wearing and social distancing isn't mandatory.

Did BOAZ have a "The Crying Game" experience? Something stinks about his incessant need to pound on this subject.

It's Augmented reality. The Reality of your body can be changed. Does that make all those people mentality ill?

We can actually change reality. Like it or not.

That is the new reality we all live with now.

Time to grow up now bozo and be one a real human boy in the new reality that we are all creating everyday.

Maybe you will figure it all out someday. Just before you die.
