Who is this virus killing?
An Edmonton woman is celebrating her 109th birthday — just days after beating COVID-19.
Katie Bunio, born Oct. 30, 1911, is living through her second pandemic.
The great-great-grandmother was joined by family members from all over Canada for a virtual birthday party on Friday.
She’s a resident of the Shepherd’s Care Foundation’s Mill Woods long-term care facility, currently experiencing a coronavirus outbreak that has been connected to more than 100 infections. Bunio was declared recovered from a bout with the disease three days ago.
When asked how she feels at 109, Bunio had her answer ready.
“The same as nine.”
Deanna Emond said it’s an amazing feat her grandmother has lived as long as she has.
“Not just that, to be in the condition that she’s in,” Emond said, adding that Bunio still loves to play cards and do puzzles or word searches.
“And if you could still put some dough in her hand, she’d be making perogies.”
Bunio was born and raised on Alberta homestead, living and working on a farm near Redwater before retiring to the small town itself. Emond remembers whenever the grandkids would visit the farm, Bunio would have something baking in the oven.
“She took time with us kids to really make us feel special.”
The importance of family is a lesson Bunio has passed on to her loved ones — and there are a lot of them: four daughters, 13 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren.
They can say whatever they want: I’m not going to be bullied.
Until they actually prove to me that someone who was perfectly healthy got coronavirus and died from coronavirus, I am not going to accept that this disease is deadly, at all.
Maybe it is – I’m not saying it’s not.
I’m saying: for me personally, I have seen zero evidence that people without extreme existing conditions die from this virus.
People who are 109 survive.
Meanwhile, everyone who dies has heart disease, cancer, gets in a car crash, gets shot, falls down and gets a serious head injury – and so on.
The numbers they give are totally and completely fake, and the CDC admits that only 6% of deaths were from “coronavirus alone.”
On their own website, the CDC reported:
Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.
That’s them saying that – not me.
However, frankly, with the way they are lying, I don’t believe that 6%.
Why on earth would I believe anything these people are saying at this point? You would have to be mentally ill to believe a word that comes out of the mouth of any single person who works at the CDC or in any virus or epidemiology department of anything at all.
