The Truth About Covid

What’s the truth about the Covid virus? There are so many conflicting “facts,” it’s hard to know who to believe. The only thing that’s certain is the information changes every day. I checked the World Health Organization website for information, but lost confidence in it. The home page states “These materials are regularly updated based on new scientific findings as the epidemic evolves. Last updated 29 April 2020.” Really? April 29? That’s over two months ago!

The Centers for Disease Control website is updated daily.

After exploring the options, I decided the most trustworthy source of information is the CDC website. It’s the best place to get the facts about symptoms, who’s at risk, how to protect yourself, what to do if you’re sick and testing. The site also provides the latest number of cases in the country, your state and county. To sign up for email updates on the latest news, click on “More,” then click “Guidance Documents.”

Learn the latest Covid developments. The doctors are in.

If knowing about the virus itself isn’t enough, check out Brief 19.com. It’s a daily review of the latest Covid-19 research and policy written by several doctors, including editor-in-chief Jeremy Samuel Faust, MD.. Dr. Faust is an instructor at Harvard Medical School and an emergency physician. He has appeared on major networks and has many academic writing credits to his name.

    I will share the information I have about the virus. My information is from a very reliable, involved, source but it is what I was told. Use my information as you wish. The Covid-19 virus is a run-of-the-mill SARS virus like the Hong Kong Flu, the bird flu and several others we have seen over the past few years, with one exception. Covid-19 operates on a genetic level. If your DNA has a certain gene active then the virus can be deadly, if not you will experience a mild flu. I don’t know which gene, it’s name or location in the genome. It seems that certain group are more prone to having this gene active than others, much like sickle-cell-anemia. This is what lead Dr. Fauci to call Covid-19 racist. At this time my source knew of no test to see if an individual had the magic gene active. Do what you will with this information, I will not live my life in fear.

      Thanks for your comment. Personally, I wouldn’t call the virus run-of-the-mill even if only based on how contagious it is. I hadn’t heard the rest of what your source told you. Not knowing his or her credentials, I’m somewhat skeptical. It would be interesting to see what Dr. Faust and his group thinks.
