    So far we have been blessed to escape the COVID. My concern is the people that get over the initial infection but may have a compromised lung function for months or even years. Out here in New Mexico you can still see evidence of the old sanitariums that treated sick people before WWII and antibiotics. Generally antibiotics don't function well against viruses. Sure wish I had a crystal ball to see the future.

    I don't think you really want to see the future.

    Heart damage found in coronavirus patients months after recovering from COVID-19, study says.

    Broken Heart Syndrome is on the rise, and doctors are blaming the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Two German studies, published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Cardiology, found heart abnormalities in COVID-19 patients months after they had already recovered from the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2.

    ka5siw: Sir; this crud has really mucked up lots.
    My experiences and household are disease free at the moment
    I’ve read “Rex in OTZ” references. Lives for years to come; will and are; forever changed. No winners.

    Bad dental hygiene can damage your heart. Do yourselves a favor and keep healthy, well balanced as practical. I’m not a shining example as I just finish up my toast with peanut butter and 3rd cup of coffee. But we try.
