Yes and no. Yes, of course, nobody wants blood clots. But no, unless you have been worried about blood clots forever. Blood clots are manifest in many diseases humans have lived with daily forever.
That includes the flu.
But when did you hear that fact sensationalized during any of the past flu seasons? Never.
Facts don't matter to a media and politicians thriving on scaring people, apparently no matter how much destruction to society results.
People who are terrified of COVID-19 must get perspective based upon facts. For example:
>The CDC, 5-1-20, states:
•"For people 65 years and older, current COVID-19 hospitalization rates are similar to those observed during comparable time points during recent high severity influenza seasons." (Since the flu targets the young primarily, that means it must be far worse than COVID-19 in terms of hospitalization rates.)
•"For children (0-17 years), COVID-19 hospitalization rates are much lower than influenza hospitalization rates during recent influenza seasons." (That means the flu must be far worse than COVID-19 in terms of hospitalization rates.) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covidview/index.html
>Important caveat: All mortality figures are suspect. C-19 mortality figures are inflated. That's because the directive from the CDC permits almost any death to be put in the UO7.1 COVID-19 column. https://cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/coronavirus/Alert-2-New-ICD-code-introduced-for-COVID-19-deaths.pdf Hospitals and doctors are incentivized to do this since they are reimbursed by the government for doing so. Flu and pneumonia deaths, in particular, are being attributed to COVIC-19 to fuel the flames of hysteria.
> As of 5-2-20, 238,950 people globally are reported to have died from COVID-19. Compare that to the bubonic plague which killed an estimated 200 million, and the Spanish flu which killed an estimated 50 million.
> Based on today's global population of 7.8 billion, COVID-19 deaths are 0.003% of the global population. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/; Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center
> Seasonal flu kills about 646,000 people worldwide each year. This is far more than even the inflated reported deaths from C-19. https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=208914
> Original predictions were that C-19 would kill over two million Americans. Even with calling deaths C-19 that are not due to it, mortality figures are way less than those projections that sent panic through the world.
> 96% of the cases are mild. Many show no symptoms at all. Children without co-morbidities seem to be largely unaffected.
It is the unjustified reaction to this disease that should be the cause for alarm. It will, eventually, result in far more death and human misery than the disease itself. That is what we all should be paying attention to and deciphering the real agenda behind this debacle.
And no, the government overreach is not about saving lives. Otherwise, their unprecedented actions would have been taken long ago against killers we face every day that make C-19 seem inconsequential. https://www.asifthinkingmatters.com/blog/will-the-government-be-the-solution-to-covid-19;
So far his year in the world:
Over 21 million have died
4.7 million died of communicable diseases
175,000 of seasonal flu (is really much higher since many are now reported as C-19)
605,000 from HIV/AIDS
353,000 from malaria
386,000 suicides (and bound to escalate from current government actions)
486,000 auto-related https://www.worldometers.info
This is not to mention that since 2000, over 64 million have died and far more than that have been maimed and suffered due to medical intervention. https://pharmadeathclock.com
If you are terrified by C-19, hopefully, the above facts will help. If you insist on being terrified of it, this will help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcUAG6t5aN
