re: St Louis first covid death: 31 year old with "zero health issues"
OP nobody said people under 65 couldn't die from the virus, its just more of one offs. What we do know is that 99.1% have more or more pre-existing conditions. This girl looks like she is way past the obese stage, she probably couldn't walk up 10 flights of stairs. This thing attacks the lungs and if one does not have the lung capacity it certainly is possible to die.

I feel like you were attempting to setup a strawman.

Oh by the way... people die every day.

So a 31 year old as obese as her has no other conditions?

How about obesity to start with? High blood pressure? Heart problems? Thyroid? She looks like a potential parasite haven doesn’t she?

I am not a doctor but I know that when you have a poor diet or you smoke or drink heavily or otherwise just practice a crappy lifestyle that your body is in a state of inflammation due to toxins and preservatives and excess salt and minerals being filtered from your body. It is no secret then that when your body is in a position where it has to fight a invasive Virus that it fails

Not to be insensitive, but most ambulatory surgery centers wouldn't deliver general anesthesia to her because of her BMI. Too much risk.

- 99.1% of the people dying have at least one pre-existing condition
- I believe I saw 70% of the people actually had two or more pre-existing conditions (although I can't find the stats on that one right this second)
- males are more likely to die than females, probably due to heart disease and shorter life expectancy i.e. old age
- 95% of the people put on vents in China died right there in the hospital, never made it out (probably unlikely many will make it to 1 year)
- smoking is very likely to be a factor but I haven't seen any stats on that i.e. reduced lung capacity

If you're a fat frick, and you can't walk up the stairs without breathing heavy. Chances are you could be more impacted by this at even a younger age - for the most part though, this is a elderly sick and probably obese virus.

Lung capacity.

From someone close to me in the medical field, this is a lot of the cases for the young ones dying. Smokers that are obese are having a hard time with this virus, regardless of age.

Doesn't matter if your case is one where it causes bilateral pneumonia and your immune response worsens that.

I know many are clinging to the obese angle, but this will kill some healthy people.

Sorry? Based on the picture, "no known health issues" except being obese?

Close.

This is clearly a elderly sick bug, just because someone might get the bug and die as a young person or one in which a pre-existing condition is not known... doesn't make it something its not.

99.1% of the people had at least one pre-existing condition, what are the chances the .9% didn't know they had one?

If one can't walk up 10 flight of stairs without heavy breathing than you're in the danger zone... she clearly was not healthy and probably have multiple pre-existing conditions. There can be one offs but there is plenty of data on this.

Lung capacity or lack of.

If Barry was still in office, this probably wouldn't even be on the news.

The majority of people dying have 3 commodities. 97% of deaths come by way of ARDS (Acute respiratory distress syndrome).
quote:

fluid builds up in the tiny, elastic air sacs (alveoli) in your lungs. The fluid keeps your lungs from filling with enough air, which means less oxygen reaches your bloodstream. This deprives your organs of the oxygen they need to function.

ARDS typically occurs in people who are already critically ill or who have significant injuries. Severe shortness of breath — the main symptom of ARDS — usually develops within a few hours to a few days after the precipitating injury or infection.

The quickness of her death means she developed ARDS. Her obesity kept her from getting the oxygen her organs required to help her fight off the infection.

You’re probably correct. However, the study I linked in my post above indicates of those (in the study) who were hospitalized for treatment of Covid-19, 85% of them had never smoked.

And 55% of the patients were in the 15-49 age bracket (that’s their bracket, not mine). IOW, over half of those hospitalized (a sample size of over 1,000 patients) were under 50.

There are many more people below 50 than over 50 in this country, which is why the numbers are skewed for hospitalizations. At the end of the day, this is a sick elderly virus, meaning deaths.

My guess, once we have anti-body testing, we'll find out this virus has a death rate lower than the flu or similar. I would probably bet a large sum of money I already had it.

Obese people generally have no idea just how sick they really are.

A modern, mechanically assisted, sedentary and at the same time, happy life insulates them from the natural feedback of the degree of their illness.
