Chinese Virus Part 8
December 29, 2021
- The inevitable.. we go the COVID. My wife had a sore throat first and then the fever and aches and pains. I had a runny nose for several days. At the same time, I had a piece of steel in my eye, that I thought at least contributed to if not caused the runny nose. It was the right eye and predominately the right nostril that was running.
The wife took a DYI test at home on Christmas eve and it was negative. When I came down with a fever and loss of taste on the 27th we both took a home test and tested positive.
So the point here is that it's not easy to know with any certainty when you're having symptoms until you get hammered with the fever. And I was hammered. My fever was over 103 most of yesterday. I ached pretty much everywhere in body. At one point I was sure I could get out of bed and walk (I did, very slowly).
A good friend provided some Ivermectin at 8PM last night. I took 12 mg and two vitamin C capsules and by 11 PM, my fever was nearly gone. It was amazing how quickly it ended, and I'm very glad for it!
Now I continue with the Ivermctin, and hope that it doesn't go into the lungs.
I called my doctor's office, and explained my situation. The nurse called back and said there was no monoclonal antibodies available, nor the new pill from Pfizer. She said, if you have trouble breathing, go to the emergency room. That was the sum total of the medical advice.
Here's the thing... there are vitamins etc, that can help. Maybe they don't help much, but if it's a 3% difference that keeps you out of the hospital, isn't that worth pursuing? Why does the medical community discount, actually ignore over the counter treatments that can help. And I'm just talking about vitamins, etc. not even getting into the squabble over Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
If those things help only 10% of the people, only 5%, why not provide them? They are very low risk.
The medical community in the US seems to have this mind set that if it's not something they administer, then it's not a legitimate consideration.
The question you are left with when you get the COVID.. who did I get this from? Why now? There is only one person that I can think of. A nurse came to church caughing and hacking, wearing a mask ans saying, "I'm not contagious." Maybe she wasn't contageous, but it made me nervous then. I wonder if anyone in the group contracted it.
If not there, then where? I can't think of any other places that I'd been.
I've titled these pages "Chinese Virus" partly as a spoof on the liberal media, and how they found Trump to be despicable when he used that phrase. Well, I am actually convinced that the virus was developed in the Wuhan lab, at least partly funded with US dollars, and it escaped. This is a man made pandemic, no doubt.
January 2, 2021 - I still have some symptoms from the virus. Head congestion is the most prominent, although loss of smell (and taste) is a pain too. I also have some hives on my back. These aren't bad, but it's a constant mild itching. Of course no idea when these might completely clear up. I also seemed a bit short of breath when I came up the steps just now. Maybe that's just a function of the head cold, I don't know.
There's no way for me to know if this was the Omicron varient, or Delta, or whatever. I guess it does't matter.
A week ago, the news was saying that the CDC said that over 70% of the cases in the US were Omicron. The past few days, they've been reporting that the CDC as changed that to about 20%. I think the fact is they don't know and have no way to know, so why were they putting out numbers in the first place? It's more about some angle... the news is trying to get more viewers (sensationalize anything they can), the CDC always is trying to control people's actions, rather thay simply provide accurate information.
The administration is always trynig to make themselves look good, look like they are leading, etc, when in fact they have no idea what they are doing.
I do really feel sorry for folks who end up in the hospital and spend weeks there. That would be very difficult.
January 3, 2021 - News article: "Nearly two-thirds of the staff based at the Princess Elisabeth Polar Station in Antarctica have been infected with COVID-19 despite having strict health protocols in place to try to stop the spread of the respiratory disease.
Since Dec. 14, at least 16 of the 25 workers at the Princess Elisabeth Polar Station have caught the coronavirus. The first case was a researcher who had arrived at the base seven days earlier.
The infected researchers were put into quarantine following the positive test. There are two emergency doctors at the Princess Elisabeth Polar Station treating the COVID-positive researchers.
The spread of COVID-19 was surprising for many since all of the researchers were fully vaccinated. The scientists also had to take several PCR tests and quarantine before traveling to the polar station.
