Coronavirus re-infection a distinct possibility.

Is possible and is even more dangerous the second time around since medications given to treat the patient the first time can damage heart tissue, which leads to an elevated risk of heart attack. In other news test kits have also not been 100% in diagnosing all incidences of the disease.

So much for herd-immunity.

How is that possible since the immune system is now primed?


Early signs from small animal experiments are reassuring. A team from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Beijing exposed four rhesus macaques to the virus. A week later, all four were ill with covid-19-like symptoms and had high virus loads. Two weeks later, the macaques had recovered and were confirmed to have antibodies to the virus in their bloodstream.

The daily dose of panic news.

I heard from Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN this morning that they have discovered that some patients even if they recover will have heart tissue damage!

Do you acknowledge that collective fear can be just as deadly, if not worse than the threat?

See WMD 2003

It is a FACT that there are signs of people becoming reinfected by COVID-19. WMD is a complete falsehood from top to bottom. Be careful with your false equivalencies.

There!

And just remember that because you share about 98% of the monkey Genome means that you're a full monkey!

An exaggeration or spurious extrapolation of fact is also a falsehood eh.

Now mind you, I am not saying amplifications or spurious projections are deliberately peddled falsehoods in this pandemic. However, unreasoned or measured responses based on catastrophizing can create danger through introduction of other inadvertent thrats.

Scarcity.

Panic attack.

Hysteria.
