When you get really old, there are a lot of infectious diseases that can kill you. If you take pneumonia from a common cold it can kill you. The thing is to take it seriously and take precautions. Trump went at the very beginning and got treatment, the same treatments that are available to anyone catching the sars-cov-2 virus. One thing the idiots on the news channel is trying to say is that Trump got special treatments that you and I can't; that is nonsense. 200,000+ people have not died from covid-19; they will count a covid-19 death if the person tested positive 30 days, and in some states, 60 days prior to what actually killed the person. This has been a political stunt since day one and the CDC director and the WHO directors are political hacks. This whole mask thing is nonsense, masks won't stop the spread of viruses. If they did, then why did those constantly wearing masks in states with mandatory mask mandates still get sick? The mask BS came about because Trump didn't wear one so the left thought they could use it as a tool against the right. The truth is that the sars-cov-2 virus is less dangerous than the seasonal flu; already hospitalisations are flat-lining along with deaths. Remember that 70+ have a survival rate of 94.2%. If you are in the older range and have symptoms, immediately go to your doctor; it could be covid, it could be the flu, it could be a common cold virus. By the way, there are coronaviruses that cause the common cold.
Now, the PCR tests are crap, designed to have "cases" increasing. Now, in the past a case of an illness meant the person was sick. Now it means there was a positive test but the person may not be sick. They are running high cycles, some up to 40 cycles, in the PCR tests in order to drive positive results; part of the fear porn they are dishing out. If you do 60 cycles, you are 100% sure to get a positive test. Now, the PCR tests are looking at RNA fragments of viruses; maybe not even the sars-cov-2 virus. If there is a coronavirus from a past illness; remember there are coronaviruses that cause the common cold, then it will probably give a false positive. So we don't really know how many people have come in contact with the sars-cov-2 virus just like we don't really know how many deaths. The purpose is to drive the mask mandates and lockdowns that they crave in order to try and manipulate the election.
