What's the best way to tell your friend you don't want to meet because you're scared of Corona?


There are cases of permanent lung scarring from the flu every year you’ve been alive. All viral infections cause organ damage (heart, kidney, lung, etc) in some cases ... not most, but some.

We know about viral infections and coronaviruses. We know about respiratory illnesses.

There is zero evidence that the “damage” occurring with covid is anything different than what we sometimes normally see with viral infections. There is zero evidence that this “damage” is occurring more frequently with covid than it does with other infections.

So what we know so far is that it’s just like every virus ever.

The difference?

You’ve never read a news headline about the guy who got the flu or other virus and wound up with fucked up kidneys ... even though it’s happened every year ever.
