  1. And then you’ve got folks threatening others not wearing masks, not social distancing, standing with guns to make sure they can get a tattoo and their hair and nails done. It all makes me sick…

      @Efa Lump It’s not liberty that will be your down fall plenty of other countries are as free or more than the U.S. It’s idiocy

    • @Luis D. Dying from Covid-19 trumps it all…

    • They’re probably more scared than the ones that are taking it seriously… they’ve never known life like this and it’s scary for them… but I know what you mean. Totally agree with you. ❤️🇦🇺🙏

    • The ignorant are not a disease-threat to the knowledgeable. Body pH levels are the key. But the U.S. medical/teaching establishment was taken over by John D. Rockefeller and the love of money (the root of all evil) at the turn of the 20th century. So, your Rockefeller medical establishment-trained doctor doesn’t know that. Therefore, he can’t help you with the coronavirus. But you can help YOURSELF if you are wise enough to seek Truth. The answer to the coronavirus is on my YouTube channel, just a ‘click” away….

    • They want to make sure they look their best in their coffin …

Trump said “Stock Market is still strong “ = reality check Trump tried to save the economy and Stock Market first and foremost instead of Americans health first and foremost = conned by a Known Conman WTH yes a Known Conman = Americans deserve Trump let that sink in!
      Go MAGA

    A broken, stingy health care system.

    • Yep.

    • Bill Whitis | May 18, 2020 at 1:54 PM | Reply

      Broken, yes. Stingy? Not so much. The US spends far and away more per capita on what passes for a medical system. For all that money, the US has one of the poorest overall health outcomes in the world.

      Uncle Ed Republicans actually want the ACÁ repealed, without it insurance/pharmaceutical companies would be even worse

    • Virus a side,

      Single payer / Universal or M4A, whatever the name you want to use to call it is about primary preventative care.

      Going to the doctor on a regular basis or when you first notice an irregularity is key to:
      a) getting a head start before an illness becomes critical
      b) keeping healthcare costs down.

      It’s better and cheaper to act while it’s just a pill or a change in diet or routine you need vs an operation.

      Costs per person
      Canada = 5000/person annually
      USA = 11000/person annually

      But we cover every citizen,

      That’s our tax dallars at work.

  4. Good , keep improving.

  5. GET WELL MARRA!🌻🎗🌾✌

  6. Germany has mobile medical teams that go to your home and treat you there- wow.

      @Barbara Hansen facepalm, you are so right forgot to add that in my remark.. thanks for pointing it out to him

    • @Oppressive Ignorant person. Doesn’t know or understand the difference from Communism and Socialism.

    • Germany and France.

      Well in France pre virus you could always have a mobile doctor make a house call.

      Personal I think it’s a great idea and I wish they would implement it here in Canada.

      It makes no sense to have sick people driving to an ER or clinic only to infect the poor kid who’s in for a broken arm.

      @Ian G you can add the netherlands to that list, as well for quarantined people with corona to check up if the really don’t need to be taken to the hospital

      Here the quack doctors want to talk to you on a phone but still charge you regular rates.

  7. beautiful woman, glad she made it

    • David Willis | May 18, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

      @G Your vote is part of the tally to determine the popular vote. Since you are involved it probably is for losers.

    • @David Willis you should learn about the electoral vote .crooked Hillary was too stupid to understand as well….

    • David Willis | May 18, 2020 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      @G I know all about the fraudulent electoral vote. Those votes are suppose to be cast for the most popular candidate in that given state. That is not being done so the Supreme Court just had hearings on it and will fix that.

    • @G By your logic, Americans like us including you don’t matter? We don’t have any right in choosing our own leader? And by what you said, all of us are losers including you. You don’t have to vote this year because your vote doesn’t matter.

    • @miyako1909 you don’t understand the system …..

  8. Recovering from nornal pneumonia can take a long time as it is.

      She will not be winning any races and can’t join the Military.

    • @Time to get huge! 90k deaths and you say common cold lmao

    • @Lala1212 1 fake numbers when you count everything as covid now she has an excuse for not winning. Okay.

    • @teaparty62 Except there were 69k-92k deaths over the seasonal normal this year by 5/2 according to the CDC. On 5/2, the official COVID-19 death toll was 67k. Please explain how marking deaths that would have died even without COVID-19 somehow produced more excess deaths than even COVID-19 can account for. Keep in mind that the seasonal normal takes into account the normal amount of deaths in a particular month from things like heart disease, cancer, and the flu.

    • teaparty62 are you freakin nuts?

  10. Get your Vitamin A and zinc status up. Fighting a virus can rapidly deplete your A levels. The body requires vitamin A for stem cells to be able to differentiate into WBC (immune cells) and Red Blood Cells. Zinc helps the body utilize vitamin A. Drink 2 cups of carrot juice over the day with healthy meals containing healthy fat and quality protein. Do this until your body has fully recovered. This was the advice I was given years ago by Dr. Jerry Mitton when I caught a virus in Africa and was struggling to recover. That doctor saved my life.

    • @Sylvia King Okay,not so much misinformation as to the science of what you’re trying to get across….You just sent me a lot of info that doesn’t mention what is can do for the corona virus–….This IS what the thread is about….It’s misinformation if you want us to believe all of this jargon is an end-all for Covid-19….Again,that’s all I’m saying.

      You don’t need Vitiam D in the summer! Also if you eat a well balanced diet you shouldn’t need any vitiams! All sugar pills and crap in them anyway!

      @Nicole Cordova
      Vitamin D DOES NOT WORK without MAGNESIUM !
      Magnesium is needed to activate vitamin D.
      Make sure your magnesium intake is adequate if you want your vitamin D to work. Over 60 % of Americans are deficient in magnesium.

    • Councilman Les Wynan | May 18, 2020 at 5:16 PM | Reply

      Eat carrots for vitamin A, and Hemp seeds for Zinc & Magnesium.

  11. In the US even people with health insurance still cannot afford to go to the hospital.

  12. For Profit Healthcare Kills
    No way to handle a pandemic

    • You would think by definition in a pandemic there wouldn’t be empty hospitals.

    • J Bell, there might be a few hospitals in the US where the number of patients is down, but in the civilized world sick people aren’t afraid to go to the hospital for fear of bankruptcy

    I hope she gets better and hopefully this is a warning for anti quarantine people.

      When your mom and dad provides for you still it’s easy to say this. I guarantee you dont even take care of yourself or have anyone depending on you to put food on your table…. Get a job and quit being a parasite. Also its easy for you to stay home because you probably do that anyways in mommy and daddys basement.

    The medical system in the US indeed is a tragedy.

    • That’s because the U.S. medical/teaching establishment was taken over by John D. Rockefeller and the love of money (the root of all evil) at the turn of the 20th century. Body pH levels are the key. But your Rockefeller medical establishment-trained doctor doesn’t know that. So, he can’t help you with the coronavirus.
