And some, I assume, are good viruses.

That woman from Texas that died early on, after she had just weeks before posted the "Hoax" thing, etc...died from COVID-19...kidney failure is what took her out.

I can't remember her name, sadly.

Yep. Blood clotting is causing most of the various organ failures

Sounds like we should keep reopening. And ban masks in case we get any second thoughts.

At least it leaves my genitals alone.

And this is what scares the sh*t out of me. I have a comprised immune system due to a major liver disease. My red cell, white cell and platelet counts are really low. If it attacks the organs, my body would really struggle to fight it off.
Just wear a mask people. Please.

I know it's tinfoil hat-y to say this, but something this horrifying and multi-targeting of various critical organs just could not have developed on it's own in nature. Evolution just doesn't work that quickly. This HellVirus HAD to have escaped from a bio-warfare lab!

Yeah so the big problem when people dismiss the severity, they seem to forget that viruses like HIV and chicken pox create decades delay of re-emerging in different attacks in the body. I would not trust COVID to be a passing illness.

Ringshadow's article makes more sense than the fairly well disproven lab-grown/bioweapon angle.  There is a unifying theory somewhere and that may be it.

Guess there's nothing left to do but cancel civilization. Or continue with the masks and social distancing.

Ok. Stick with me. I will try to be optimistic for a second.

Maybe...just maybe...this will lead to a massive amount of research on viruses that will catapult humanity in a way that we didn't foresee because we would not have just put money into research otherwise.

SARS-CoV-2 is not a retrovirus, so it can't work like HIV at all. There's no reason to think it will work like chicken pox, either. What it can do is cause lasting damage to your organs and fark with your immune system so that it attacks you.

That's not better than what you said, but it is different.

I follow this doc regularly on Twitter and I recommend doing the same. He is an absolute ocean of educated insight and research. Plus, if you're into statistical analysis and epidemiology--he's your guy.

At this point I'm not sure it really matters whether it is a natural mutation or a lab created one, it's seriously nasty.

Also currently the world is full of facebook fans who can't or wont take it seriously, which is in itself a huge problem. If the virus only infected the chronically stupid I'd be fine with it, but these a-holes will just as likely end up being one of the asymptomatic who spread it and eventually infect someone doing their best to look after themselves.

Wonder when movies will start being set in the covid era.  Thinking a buddy cop movie where the precinct is defunded and the leads are mask-shamed and arrested for BLM infractions.  But funny...like Simon Pegg or something.  Oh this thing is writing itself..

Wash my hands?  WASH MY HANDS?!  Fark you, don't tell me what to do.

Where's the evidence that handwashing has any impact on transmission?

That's right, I thought so.  Enjoy your chocolate pretzel.

I'm in a group that's tracking the disease across the country using models. A lot of deaths are not being reported correctly. The data that we're getting from several states is obviously flawed. Just when comparing causes of death from last year.

My daughter did a science fair project in 1st freaking grade on hand washing. For Christ's sake wash your damned hands.

There's actually far more out there in the real world, since here on fark we will mock them. Then they go to f/book or twitter to be with other absolutely hopeless morons.

The farking virus binds to ACE2 receptors.

Practically everything in the body has ACE2 receptors.

The problem is that they're not marking deaths as COVID-19. They're marking them as pneumonia. Or something else unrelated. Because there's no evidence because of no testing that people had COVID-19
