I thought maybe we should start a new thread so that new important info isn’t buried in an old thread. My goal of this thread was to be a more informative thread. Let’s try and keep the garbage out of it. Let’s try to only post current information.
If you want to discuss the virus, form political opinions, blame governments, etc than please do that in one of the other threads. Let’s keep this one as an informative thread only.
**I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE MODS TO PLEASE KEEP THIS THREAD CLEAN OF GARBAGE. **
Here’s the good news…
I noticed that Michigan’s current death toll is less than 1%. To be honest it really is probably far less than that because so many people aren’t getting tested. The truth is that a very small percentage of cases are getting tested. If your not hospitalized then your probably not getting tested. We also know that 80% of the cases are mild too. There’s a good chance you’ve already been exposed. However that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take this seriously and take necessary precautions.
Also I heard on the radio that China has had two consecutive days with no new cases. If this is true than maybe this thing just needs to run its course.
Bad News …
I’ll be the first to admit that I have taken this thing too lightly. I still think we as a society are overreacting some but the truth is that many long term Den Family members are at serious risk. I am 50, I am diabetic and I have PV which is a blood disease classified as a mild form of cancer. I take NSAID’s too. All of these make me a high risk.
What’s an NSAID? it is an anti-inflammatory. Like Motrin, Asprin, Celebrex and Naproxen’s. Apparently NSAID’s put you at a higher risk. So I quit taking mine today because I only take mine for swelling.
Here’s a list of the virus tracking in Michigan. We have our first case in the UP today. This article has places to avoid. Please read it.
