I'm still always so surprised to see the large differences in anecdotal experience.

I still don't know anyone who's been hospitalized, much less died, from COVID.  And that includes my 80+ year-old in-laws who got it back in summer 2020.
As I reported on here awhile back unfortunately I lost my dad to Covid as well as my uncle.  Last time I counted there was about 18 people on my list that I know died from covid.  Most I didn't know well, but I knew them.  Some were young, most were older.  

I think I kinda got nosy after dad, starting asking about the why and what.

I started asking why people died.  Because often they were reluctant to tell when someone passed from COVID.  I started paying attention to the obituary's and asked around.

I still think we are mixing folks dying from covid with folks dying with covid

overall hospitalizations from covid remains low

additionally because folks are getting covid more then once the number of new cases is becoming meaningless
The thing that irked me about this thing is that years in, there’s been very little good messaging about the whole mechanics of cause of death and that whole process.

In most cases, if illness gets you, it’s a combo of things. Like, my grandma died with heart failure. She died of a massive confluence of health issues just causing system-wide failures, but that happens when your old. She also lived with heart failure long enough that the heart failure was old enough to vote and join the army (I can’t recall if it got old enough to drink).

That’s not to say some people aren’t being listed when they does with COVID. But it’s also probably not as drastic as is sometimes described by dedicated skeptics. I imagine it’s somewhere in between.

Still, folks haven’t messaged what most death certificates with illness look like. As I understand, a lot, when it comes to illness, they often include a cocktail of things. But there’s been poor discussion of that, for whatever reason. (Plus it’s mostly back of mind anyway these days, thankfully)

It’s interesting.

Off the top of my head, I know one friend who was in the hospital for like 3-4 weeks. He was not in optimum health, vaxxed, not boosted.

An associate of his, who I didn’t know, but a lot of friends did, died at age 34 with kid No. 1 on the way. Unknown if he got the jab, but was a real sad story.

Small study in Thailand, but the results were out of 202 boys age 13-18, 3 had chest pain and elevated troponins. 4 had no symptoms but elevated troponins indicating cardiac damage. 7/202 over 3%. This could’ve been investigated long ago here in the USA,  but wasn’t for... reasons, I guess.
