Okay My husband and I are currently in day 7 of Coooviddd. Picked it up in either TX or New Orleans last week. We are late 60s, double vaxed and one with the booster. Not in the best shape of our lives. We are not in any way gonna be hospitalized or die from this virus. Symptoms like a mild flu. No fever. I’m thinking these reported deaths and hospitalizations are for people with other serious health issues but the country never gives you enough information of course. Maybe dying with Covid not from it. Stay well people and have no fear. 3 more days…..

Thoughts & prayers for a speedy recovery!

From? or with?

Died from a case of Covid-19, or died with a case of Covid-19. Perhaps Covid-19 was the last straw on the camel. What is the difference? Covid-19 contributed to the death.

Anyway, this is rapidly coming to a close. The greatest American mass death event with the runner up the civil war.

How regrettable to be one of the last to perish.

Tens of thousands of people are going to die every year from covid. It will never be over

Granted, if it’s your loved one, what difference does it make. I agree.

However, from a statistical and scientific point of view there is a difference. Especially when the historians write about this.

Why are there never separate totals, one for Died from Covid and one for Died with Covid?

STILL in denial about how serious this Covid-19 ‘hoax’ is? Really? Comes a point to when your no longer standing for “Principles” but are an absurdity, a joke.

They died from covid. They would all be alive right now if they hadn’t got covid. They are working thru over 15 more deaths to make sure they died from covid not with covid.

Would love to see deaths listed by political party affiliation.
