Yes, Karl. Past outbreaks - H1N1, swine flu, etc. - all were more devasating in the elderly population and in the obese and folks with preconditions. And it is not ethically correct to say it was the virus alone that killed these folks. What galls me is that this was known and still nothing is being done now. Also, even the flu casuses organ damage in some folks, but the rare occassions with COVID-19 are being blown way out of proportion, as if this never happened before with anything else. And you posted from a doc (West Virginia?) about his institution's use of cheap anti-inflammatories and immunosuppressants, which is exactly what is needed in folks with a fuliminant infection, as it isn't the virus killing them, it's their immune system pumping out too many cytokines, causing a sepsis like condition. Ditto clotting, which also does happen in equally rare circumstances with the flu. Insanity. If you are in good shape, not obese, and exercise, even if over 75, you are going to be OK. And yes, I know from ongoing personal experience that it is the carbs. What surpirsed me was the effect of giving up two glasses of wine a night. And there is NOTHING like the runner's high, and I use an elleiptical and recumbent cycle. Keeps the muscles functional but not the same thing by a long shot. Right on, Karl. Keep up the good fight!
