I’ve only known 1 person who tested positive for covid.His doctor sent him home to tough it out as his insurance wouldn’t cover hospital care .2 weeks of resting lots of water and soaking in his high chlorine pool and hot tub he’s back to 12 to 16 hours a day doing manual labor in 100 degree heat …294 people have died from covid in SLO county …population is 283,000 people. 1/10th of 1 percent has died from covid in SLO county .I know its a serious situation .But now doctors are starting to state it appears covid is worse in people that have underlying health problems or overweight and do not exercise or do strenuous physical activities or work …I don’t wish this sickness on anyone including myself …personally I haven’t had to place myself in contagious atmospheres since the beginning of covid and I’m thankful I haven’t had to be in public places on a regular basis

Your friend is an excellent sturdy individual. Still took him 2 weeks, glad all went well! There are some with underlying problems, risks and sometimes even the strong are just plain flat unlucky.

Think of this young man’s grandma.

Get yourself double vaxxed, normal precautions, out of this.

vaccination = freedom = much lower risk of spreading Covid = did your part as a responsible American

Cool story, bro. Be careful drawing conclusions from a sample size of one. I know a dude that chain smoked every day and lived to be 80, but I wouldn’t recommend people start smoking to improve their life from that one example.


Now regarding the 294 (now 299) deaths in this county from COVID. For comparison, ONE person died in a traffic accident on highway 101 a few years ago and there was a huge frenzy to spend big money to eliminate all left turn crossings from that stretch of the freeway and cause roadway delays. Almost 300 people die from COVID, and people can’t be bothered to wear a mask that costs at most 10 cents or get a free vaccine? If 300 people died from traffic accidents or God-forbid terrorism in the last few years in this county, you know people would move heaven and earth to prevent the carnage from continuing to happen. But when it is a slow drip of deaths that are invisible to most, people are fine burying their heads in the sand.
