  1. One positive side to this covid is that no one has died from cancer, heart attacks, pneumonia, flu, or old age this entire year.

      @Dream Wolf Wow, That is so sad to hear that. I heard about insurance companies not wanting to pay out too.

    • I’m only speaking for what I see going on around me not what news or somebody tells me

    • With what I have witnessed outside and around people this whole time there is nothing out of the ordinary but on TV besides the fact we’re all locked down with no freedom and treated like mentally disabled farm animals

      justmichelle71 hospitals get $13k per Covid case and $39k per Covid death…so they have a large incentive to list deaths as Covid. The CDC coding guidelines do not require a positive test even, it’s at the doctor’s discretion. You can read the guidelines on the CDC website. My cousin’s 2 children had fevers and coughs and their doctor insisted it was Covid, but their mother insisted on them being tested and it was not. I don’t necessarily believe that inflating the numbers is happening everywhere. The town I live in has only had about 18 cases and there was one death but it was an extremely elderly man in his 90s. None of this makes any sense. Dr. Burks openly said that anyone that dies with Covid is on the death list. So we have no idea how deadly this virus really is at all, none. It’s kind of infuriating. And insisting that people wear masks is ridiculous, masks do not protect from viruses, viruses are too tiny and masks cause people to touch their face more than they ever would without one. So the risk of exposure becomes much greater. I read an NIH study and a Live Sciece study and they both stated that masks really did not do any good at all. There have been lots of medical doctors and nurses making videos about this as well however YouTube has openly stated they are removing any videos that give information that conflicts with the WHO guidelines. Not even the CDC or the NIH, the WHO. All it does is make people feel a little more secure when actually it increases the risk of exposure. You also inhale more CO2 than normal while wearing a mask. I don’t understand why this whole thing has been so idiotic. I am sorry for your loss and the OP was being sarcastic because people that are dying from all of the things he listed are being listed as dying from Covid quite often. If I went into the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest and tested positive for Covid, Covid would be listed as my cause of death. That makes absolutely no sense. Again I believe it is at the doctor’s discretion so there probably are some doctors that would not list it as the cause of death in that situation because they have some morals. But I’m sure there are also a lot of hospital administration’s that want that $39,000 and amoral docs who happily oblige .

    • @Appable A relative of ours had a baby and Phoenix Arizona the hospital was empty a nurse told my mom in North Carolina the hospitals empty there I’m in Las Vegas the hospitals are empty here also over in Europe I’m only speaking with my personal experience that’s all

      Ozzman Osgood I agree with you on virus size. But the virus isn’t airborne “yet”. Which means it’s needs a mode of travel. Moisture droplets from sneezing, coughing, mucous in general. So a 95 mask will help but I wouldn’t wear but once because after the moisture dries out you could just be inhaling the virus

    I disagree with Dr. Vin Gupta about what we’re seeing on the “front lines”. I have been an ER Nurse for 22 years and traffic thru the ER has NEVER been do slow. Let me say it again, It has never been do slow in the ER. Half our hospital is shut down and ICU is mostly empty.
    He may be speaking the truth from his experience, but my experience is WAY different. Any other nurses out there want to weigh in? I’m curious to know what the experience of my colleagues across the country has been.

      @Play ForeverRN I have a feeling Gupta is a paid stooge, on MSNBC’s payroll.

    • Lauren Fingerson | May 26, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      No surprise that ER’s are slow. It’s doctor’s like this guy, going around and creating an atmosphere of fear. That make people think that if they walk into a hospital, their coming out of it with covid19.

    • Terry Melvin | May 26, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      @Lauren Fingerson But they can’t go in for anything but an emergency anyway, because the rest of the hospital is closed down do to unjustified and unwarranted fear.

  7. It’s so good to see people waking up and see truly purpose of TV ( tell a lie vision)

    • BW MadDog [retired] | May 26, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      It’s not that normal. TV refresh rate causes your mind state to slip to a hypnotic condition that opens your subconscious mind and allows unscrupulous networks to fill our subconscious with a desired world view. The mass mind-control experts in the CIA think it up, and send it to Gannett who “sells” it to the fake newsies including fox. All corporate news is wired to deceive us.

    • @BW MadDog [retired] ” TV refresh rate causes your mind state to slip to a hypnotic condition that opens your subconscious”
      The refresh rate on your computer monitor gives you covid. Or so I heard from somebody.

      Tony Smith China actually does do that. They’re known as the “50 Cent Army”, though I doubt any are here, because they’re characterized by poor English skills, constantly bashing on America even when it’s never mentioned, praising China for everything and refusing to acknowledge anything negative about China, and citing the same few Chinese puppets as legitimate sources like the WHO or some other horrible news outlets that lost all credibility 6 years ago

    These people never want to talk about exercise, vitamins, good nutrition, rest, good relationships. That should tell you everything you need to know about how so many “health experts” approach wellness.

      @Karl Irvin Right, your ilk needs a guiding authoritative hand for everything. Even the most fundamental basics of biology. A healthy organism is more likely to survive infection than a compromised one. Sorry that you won’t listen until a health “expert” goes on TV soon and says the same. Sheep.

    • L3giTxSniPE I’ll mark that down as a No.
