And? Look at the real numbers. Look at all the real numbers.

If you have underlying conditions worry. So few have actually died from the virus itself. We will never know the real truth about this issue.

Including DW and myself. We are both 68 and survived the virus in early July. Back to normal now.

What, the virus is only bad if you get it. If you do not get the virus, you are fine?

If you have underlying conditions and get the virus and die, it is still a virus death. You would have lived much longer if it was not for the virus. It is a virus death. You can't sway the numbers.

In November 2019, a group of my friends all had flu like symptoms, some worse that others. In country folks like fashion, they ate chicken soup, stayed in bed 4-5 days, and drank 'soothing elixer'. All said they got better in just a few days, but the effect lingered for a couple of months. When the hoopla started in Feb/Mar 2020, the descriptions matched their symptoms. They were not allowed to be tested then. So who knows what they really had.

Since the restrictions started, I have had 5 elderly friends die. All were labeled as "covid related". 2 had major heart issues for over 5 years. 2 more had cancer. And the oddest one was shot in an armed robbery, and yet was covid related. All people who I know personally, and know their families.

But I'm the cornspiracy nut!?! (misspelling is intentional)

Thread Reminder

This thread, as well as others in the COVID forum, generates a lot of varying opinions. I would remind everyone to read the "Read Me" sticky that governs all of the threads in this forum.
https://www.irv2.com/forums/f296/new...me-481656.html

Always remember the three rules of posting:

- Is it true?
- Is it helpful?
- Is it kind?

I posted this because some might be considering this area as part of their itinerary. It was not meant to be a political statement.

Oh well

Math doesn't lie. But the variable fed into the equation can lead to inaccurate results.

Interesting reply, quoting an opinion piece

Our Covid threads are scrutinized differently from the other Forum sections as they tend to be heated. We have removed a few posts as they didnít pass the true test. Please read this.

This is for information only and I hope it is left up. I live in Grayson county Texas and Bryan county Oklahoma is about a mile and a half away crow flies across Red river.
