First we have this from you from the CORONAVIRUS MATH thread:

Now we have this:


Refreshing to see someone point out contradicting EB posts. I think most others have given up out of frustration.

"In its latest Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, researchers at the U.S. Centers for Diseases Control (CDC) say that there were limited instances of COVID-19 in the U.S. during most of January, and that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease, didn’t start to spread widely until the end of the month and into February." -June 01, 2020

There Were Limited COVID-19 Cases in the U.S. During Most of January, Says New CDC Report

So, EvenBob claiming that he had Covid-19 in February is certainly possible.



You also have to believe it was in Michigan at that time then.

You'd also have to believe he was around his family, and didn't spread it nor kill any of them.

I would have killed people off, at that time, because I would have had no idea about social distancing.

LOLOL! Who gives a crap. What
happened happened. My doctor
keeps sending me reminders
to come in and get tested, screw
him. I hate doctors, they are just
there to suck the insurance
companies dry. Get this test,
get that test, it never ends.
I already had covid, what good
will the test do. So he can say,
yup, I knew it? Screw him.

Okay now we get to the bottom of it.

Your doctor said he assumed you had Covid-19 based on your symptoms but wanted to confirm it with a test.

You just assume you had it and refuse to confirm it.

So basically you don't really know. You are just guessing and won't let the doctor do his job.

This is why people on WOV are haranguing you about your claim to have had it

Weren't Doctors supposed to report all such cases to the Health Department?

He didn't assume anything!
He said I had it, then later
he wanted to confirm it
when testing was available.

ARGUHHHH! This is insane,
what do you people care
one frick if I had it or not???
I'm sick of the nonsense,
thread blocked. Good grief.

You are blocking the thread because you understand how you are losing this argument.

When a doctor says he needs to confirm you have something through testing the translation of that is he is making a best scenario guess and doesn't know for sure.

You know that very well.
.
But you may be conducting yourself in a fashion that endangers those around you. If you haven't had Covid-19 like you believe then you may become an asymptomatic carrier who nonchalantly spreads the virus thinking incorrectly that you have previously beaten it

Getting tested is truthfully the Least you can do in a pandemic but naturally you won't even do that.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but a quick update to my situation. Had another scan today and there is less inflammation. I kind of thought it might show that because I have been feeling better for about 4-5 days since the end of last week. The pressure in my chest is completely gone and I haven't been quite as fatigued as I have been for months. Still not sure if the fatigue is a result of the inflammation or something different. I forgot to ask that. Have another scan in 2 weeks, with any luck, it may be cleared up completely by then and I can stop the meds and hopefully finally get back to some sense of normalcy.

Glad to know you are feeling better!!! Hopefully on the road to permanent recovery!

I'm just catching up with this thread. I am curious why you are definitively linking your previous case of covid to the current inflammation issues? I'm not a medical professional, but I've got to think there are a number of reasons why one might experience inflammation that are not related to covid? Especially given your cardio medical history (2 valve replacements).

I see this virus in a much diminished light as compared to some. You indicated that people should not minimize the virus for political reasons, and that is true, but the same can be said of those who wish to maximize the hysteria and panic for political reasons.
