I wouldnt accepts this as accurate just yet

They looked at 100 patients and other then age we dont know much about these patients

preexisting conditions etc and how sick did they get and was there any followup to see id the damage remained

not saying the virus doesnt harm your heart but we should wait for more info before we say 75% of virus patients have damaged hearts
100% of the people I know that have had a positive test have had no lingering affects at all.  Of course not one of them was even close to being hospitalized.  Very mild cases.

I dont know either but if he had chemo it trashes your immune system so either way he would be at a higher risk
The thing that's never been made clear is what percent of the population is at higher risk.

It's spoken about as a relative minority, but are we talking 1 in 100? 1 in 10? 1 in 6?

CW I dont think Mdot meant it the way it sounded at least I hope not

Nobody is expendable and its a shame he passed
Based on his past posts, it seems the olds and fats/uglies should lock themselves in their houses so the young and skinny people can just get on with their lives. 

I hope that's merely hyperbole...

My inlaws sure as shit should have stayed locked in their house.  They engaged in risky behavior, and unsurprisingly, they caught it.  I think they'd definitely choose a different path if they had to do it again.  I'm using it as a cautionary tale for my own parents, but they've been less risky all along so I'm not as worried about them.

I didn’t take Mdots post that way. 

I think he was pointing out, as he has in the past, that counting somebody with stage four cancer who is on their way to death pretty quickly anyway.  

The Covid death count is probably exaggerated if you take that point of view

Ideally you should ensure your staff isn't sending out BS conspiracy theories about something less than 24 hours before it kills you

School boards are in a pickle, I think.  They are elected officials, so they are at least somewhat responsive to public opinion. And they've got some parents saying they'll be damned if they'll let their kids wear masks and other parents saying that they don't want their kids in school (a.k.a. Coronavirus Heaven) until the pandemic is over.
As I think I posted upthread, I don't see how we go for very long--like less than a month--before we start getting a few positives and contract tracing demonstrates that nearly everyone in the building has been exposed.
What then?
In Chicago, the entire school board is appointed by the mayor.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Hmm. I didn’t really take that as conspiracy theory BS.  It was just a poll of Americans who would be willing to be first in line for a COVID vaccine.  I’m not sure I’d be at the front of that line myself.  And I’m not anti-vaccine and I know COVID isn’t some made up hoax.  I’d just like to see how people respond to it long term before I roll up my sleeve.

So apparently Fauci suggested wearing goggles wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Look, I’ve been a good sport about the masks. I ain’t wearing f***ing goggles.
