Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The "dose" of the virus you receive might make the difference between being asymptomatic, getting mildly sick or becoming critically ill -- may be helpful when thinking about protection against Covid-19 as the colder temperatures arrive and cases spike.

[Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease doctor and professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco] noted that in places and situations that had adopted universal masking -- such as on an Argentine cruise ship and at several US food-processing plants -- the asymptomatic infection rate, at above 80%, was more than double the CDC's estimated asymptomatic infection rate of approximately 40%. The mask appears to lower the dose by filtering out some of the viral particles.

Gee, reminds me of parents claiming their childrens autism begun immediately and visibly after a series of vaccinations.

But, as medical community claims that's not possible, so I highly doubt the nature of this articles findings.

I don't follow the comment RedLight. My Doctor had been talking to a group of other doctors including Epidemiologists across the country for a while when I talked to her in Late August. (She is actually more connected in the medical community than I realized.) Anyhow their working theory was that the infection was at least partially exposure driven - the more you got the worse it ends up. During that conversation she said they were still getting severe cases but not at the rate they saw in the late winter / early spring.

Another study out there found that a particular gene was likely to give you a worse case. I believe that research was posted here. That wasn't a 100% thing but it was pretty interesting link.

So much to learn and most people fail to understand that in our instant gratification world.

What I am saying is that the vaccine will kill a percentage of those "inoculated".

I wrote about my very first flu shot to keep my job - how horrible that was for me even months afterwards.

Maybe this implies that there are levels or plateaus of exposure, but when the entire spectrum of immune response is overwhelmed, such as children series vaccinations the result is long-term damage seen immediately. Not so gratifying to anyone, imo.

Imo, it could be that the organs specifically impacted are related to where in your immune cycle you are when first infected and then imitates part of the cellular replication process, beginning with immune differentiation. I believe that means people would be potentially infected from any kind of disease they are exposed to as their immune response is overridden. What are the percentages of co-morbidity and specifically what is the cause of death might even give an idea as to when a person was infected.

Regulating the immune differentiation cycle may also predict potential co-morbidity, allowing a more specific vaccine.
