  1. Do remember you said the number was 300,000 in the headlines. Which was false. Argue about what "nearly" means to you, all you want. The fact is the word "nearly" appears on both headlines, and you are the only person that is mislead about it.
  2. link to a story on webmd Story is from July of 202 July 30, 2020 -- A large number of patients who recover from the coronavirus may have heart damage weeks or months after they feel better, according to two new studies in JAMA Cardiology. Released Monday, the studies reinforce the idea that COVID-19 attacks more than the lungs — it can damage other organs, too, even in people who were healthy before they contracted the virus. In one study, researchers [SM1] from Germany analyzed MRI scans in 100 people between ages 45 to 53 who recovered from the coronavirus. Compared to scans of similar patients who didn’t have the virus, 78 had lingering heart damage and structural changes to their hearts. In addition, 76 of those patients had a biomarker usually found in heart attack patients, and 60 had heart inflammation. Of the 100 patients recently recovered from COVID-19, 67 (67%) recovered at home, while 33 (33%) required hospitalization. None of the patients had heart problems before the virus or experienced heart symptoms while they had COVID-19. They were “mostly healthy” before they got sick, the researchers said. “The patients and ourselves were both surprised by the intensity and prevalence of these findings, and that they were still very pronounced even though the original illness had been by then already a few weeks away,” Valentina Puntmann, MD, a cardiologist at the University Hospital Frankfurt and a co-author of the study, told UPI. “We found evidence of ongoing inflammation within the heart muscle, as well as of the heart’s lining in a considerable majority of patients,” she said. In the other study, another team of researchers from Germany analyzed autopsy reports for 39 people between ages 78 to 89 who died from COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic. They found that the virus infected the heart in 16 -- or 41% -- of the patients. “We see signs of viral replication in those that are heavily infected,” Dirk Westermann, MD, a cardiologist at the University Heart and Vascular Centre in Hamburg and a co-author of the study, told STAT. “We don’t know the long-term consequences of the changes in gene expression yet,” he said. “I know from other diseases that it’s obviously not good to have that increased level of inflammation.” Doctors have documented heart damage among COVID-19 patients worldwide. Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez announced on Sunday that he wouldn’t start the season because he’s dealing with heart inflammation after contracting the coronavirus. He’s waiting for additional MRI results to determine whether he can play, according to WEEI. “Back when I got COVID, I felt it all. I felt all the symptoms and everything,” he told the radio station. “Right now, I don’t feel all the symptoms. I got surprised when I got that from my heart because I don’t feel any symptoms from that. I didn’t feel anything from my chest. Of the 100 patients recently recovered from COVID-19, 67 (67%) recovered at home, while 33 (33%) required hospitalization.
  3. Honestly I don't care that you feel strongly about this or not. That is completely irrelevant to the facts, that 285 is nearly 300, and the headlines both said "nearly"
  4. The federal government is the peoples representative, so the people do have rights. That said. The Mi'kmaw are doing nothing illegal and the RCMP and the government should enforce those rights. "All that evil needs is for good people to do nothing" some wise person said something like that.
  5. I'd suggest you switch to de-caffeinated coffee, it would make your post more readable. Just what are you trying to say here?
  6. do you have a link to the FBI saying it has the computer? Or a lot more likely, just links to stories saying the fbi has the computer?
  7. Again, you double down and are wrong still. Both of those headlines say "NEARLY" 300,000. 'the difference between 15 and 15000k people is huge" Thanks, but I already knew that.
  8. Just sent an email to bccdc asking for data on covid related illnesses. Will post what they reply.
  9. Maybe a lot of those people don't have health care, it is the U.S. after all. No money, no health care?
  10. I'm sorry, is this the thread I'm not supposed to believe everything I read on the web or is that some other thread? But seriously I'd like to see better reporting on the lingering illnesses, than has been posted here. At this point those numbers are all I've found, anyone got any better?
  11. 285 is 95% of 300. That is nearly in my books. And you are the poster that stated it was "300" in the headline. So you are now wrong twice.
  12. Not sure if that is condescension or just flat out rain.
  13. You see it as you see, just as every one sees it as they see it.
