Rightfully so, what a tragedy. These deaths are all so needless.

We wouldn't be in a global pandemic if COVID-19 were "just a flu". Think about that for a moment, the idea of claiming that the whole world shut down due to "just a flu". Saying it's "just a flu" dangerously minimizes the seriousness of the situation.

This is a view I hear a lot from people who frequent certain rabbit holes that can't be discussed here. But rest assured, COVID-19 is much more serious and deadly than any normal flu. Just pop out of the rabbit hole for a minute and do a quick google and look at the various reports on death and severe disease, then compare that to a regular flu... and please report back with your findings!

There's far too much out there to hold the opinion that this is "just the flu".

Buddy I used to work with caught it. Unvaxxed. Hospitalized for over a week, put on oxygen after he developed pneumonia and his lungs were ravaged. Slowly recovered, and it's been ~2 weeks since he got out of the hospital - he gets exhausted just from walking down the street.

He had all the opportunity in the world to get vaccinated. Took advice from the wrong people and he almost left his wife and three kids (one just an infant) without a father or main income.

Definitely not "just the flu". He's like 31 years old.

I don't know how, after over 19 months of this crap, someone can still think it's "just a flu" or even "like a strong flu..." It's so much more than that. I wish people would give the COVID pandemic the seriousness it deserves.

Lots of people live in denial, that this is a made up issue by "the libs " and it's up to them to resist and preserve their "rights".

Many have died because of this and will continue to.

If they still think its just the flu, they can catch it and beat it just like the flu.
If they can even beat it.

When this whole thing started i thought it was just the flu too (i think alot of people did).
But as the cases went up, and the severity of this was starting to manifest, it didn't take long to realize it is more than "just the flu".

Unfortunately a ton of people are still stuck in that first gear of "just the flu" and its gonna bite them in the butt one way or another.
And we all pay the consequences as a result.

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back." - Carl Sagan

Quote:
One in three people who survived COVID-19 suffered from long COVID, according to a study of Long Beach residents published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday.

The study found that these long COVID patients reported at least one symptom of COVID-19 two months after first testing positive for the coronavirus.
...
The study found that 35% of survey responders reported at least one ongoing symptom of COVID-19 two months after the initial positive test.

Fatigue was reported by 17% of those long COVID patients; difficulty breathing and loss of taste or smell were reported by 13%; and muscle or joint pain was reported by 11%.
...
Experts say that vaccination not only reduces the chance of falling ill with COVID-19, but it probably also reduces the chance of enduring long COVID should a vaccinated person contract a breakthrough infection.

Methinks a lot of people on this forum have serious reading comprehension problems or just don't use their brains for critical thinking much.

I NEVER SAID IT WAS "JUST A FLU"...get that through your thick skulls for a moment

I said for the people who do think that way it'll likely always be that way because the vast majority of people don't die from covid or suffer massive problems from it...yes, millions of people have died but a huge number more people have completely recovered from it. Several people at my work have got it and out of those 75% of them had basic cold or flu symptoms and nothing more...a couple more have long lingering health problems so obviously it's still serious business. It's a strange virus to be sure as some people barely get symptoms and others (who don't die) are given a serious physical beating.

I just have no patience for people on here who read like one thing out of context and then shoot their mouths off like triggered children. I think I'm done with this thread

The problem is that you are unclear on what you originally wrote. I understand that you are saying that in the first bolded part of "To most people..." you're saying that the opinion of these people is that it is just a flu. However, English being the way it is, the second reading of that, even in the context of everything you wrote, can also come off as not being about the opinion of other people about covid, but rather how for some people who are infected with Covid it is "just a flu" to them. Once infected, they only suffer symptoms that are like the seasonal flu. I mean, you literally go on in the most recent post to say this exact thing, so.... are we confused, or are you?

The only triggered child I see is the mod who should know better to insinuate about cognitive abilities and reading comprehension or popping off every time that their opinion is rebutted.

And don't even get me started on why your statements belie the fact that whatever 'research' or 'news' you watch undermine every ounce of credibility or credence one may put towards you... No matter how many (likely) you put in something, no matter how much you want to make it so, there has been no conclusive evidence towards it being engineered in a lab. Those additions to the OP just make it even easier for others to assume what your intent was in the first place as it stems from a mindset that seeks to often deny reality because of their political leaning and preferred "news" sources, many of which still parrot the "just a flu" esque narrative to downplay what has taken too god damned many lives.

And don't even get me started on why your statements belie the fact that whatever 'research' or 'news' you watch undermine every ounce of credibility or credence one may put towards you... No matter how many (likely) you put in something, no matter how much you want to make it so, there has been no conclusive evidence towards it being engineered in a lab. Those additions to the OP just make it even easier for others to assume what your intent was in the first place as it stems from a mindset that seeks to often deny reality because of their political leaning and preferred "news" sources, many of which still parrot the "just a flu" esque narrative to downplay what has taken too god damned many lives.
Agreed.

The way MyTMouse's post was written, it was unclear that he was stating others' opinions rather than his own, minimizing the severity of the pandemic. Then he went on about a lab conspiracy theory, which gave further evidence that his own view comes from a deep (and largely political) rabbit hole of denial and misinformation. The wording and narrative tone in his posts are all-too-familiar, betraying the contaminated ideological well from which they came.

FWIW, I used critical thinking to come to this view...

thanks again guys

been a bad year for us my mom died June 6th non Covid
then my dad bringing home Covid from kidney dialysis and spending 27 days in 3 trips to the hospital
giving it to me 4 or 5 days later wasn't a big deal I and the VA's monoclonal antibodies shock it off fast

now my uncle dies with Covid but nor sure it was from Covid as he had no Covid symptoms it was mostly his kidneys had shut down they say
and waking up confused with dementia and pulling his IV out and doing a lot of damage doing it I think
he lost a lot of blood and they couldn't get another iv in


my dad is slowly getting better but I have to drive to Sheridan Wyoming to sign lots of crap and pack up his papers and some of his stuff and be the only family one at the funeral
my dad is not well enough to go and his own kidney dialysis almost bars all travel and my sister can come over and visit but is too disabled to take care of him so I just spent 3k+ on a live in nurse for 7 days

and I have to take the dogs as the nurse won't take care of them and some fear dogs, don't know if I would pass a covid test to fly anyway but taking the dogs is driving only as I won't put my dogs in cargo

it will be almost 5 weeks by then since I popped positive but dad was still showed positive the last time he was in the hospital even if they took him off of quarantine and he is back to hid normal kidney dialysis center
they say he may test positive for months but not be contagious
