The New York Times has an article up entitled, “A Student Dies, and a Campus Gets Serious About Coronavirus,” about a college student allegedly dying of coronavirus at Appalachian State in North Carolina.
For 17 paragraphs, we get lectured about how young people are not immune, how we have to lock everything down, how life cannot ever be normal because actually, many young people are going to die from this virus.
But then we hit paragraph 18:
Relatives said that though he had recovered from the respiratory symptoms of COVID-19, the virus had also attacked his brain, possibly triggering a previously undetected case of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare disorder in which the body’s nerves are attacked by its immune system.
What is Guillain–Barré syndrome, asks ye?
Well, it’s a rapid-onset autoimmune disease that kills about 7.5% of people who get it.
Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system. The initial symptoms are typically changes in sensation or pain often in the back along with muscle weakness, beginning in the feet and hands, often spreading to the arms and upper body, with both sides being involved. The symptoms may develop over hours to a few weeks. During the acute phase, the disorder can be life-threatening, with about 15 percent of people developing weakness of the breathing muscles and, therefore, requiring mechanical ventilation. Some are affected by changes in the function of the autonomic nervous system, which can lead to dangerous abnormalities in heart rate and blood pressure.
Although the cause is unknown, the underlying mechanism involves an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nerves and damages their myelin insulation. Sometimes this immune dysfunction is triggered by an infection or, less commonly by surgery and rarely by vaccination. The diagnosis is usually made based on the signs and symptoms, through the exclusion of alternative causes, and supported by tests such as nerve conduction studies and examination of the cerebrospinal fluid. There are a number of subtypes based on the areas of weakness, results of nerve conduction studies and the presence of certain antibodies. It is classified as an acute polyneuropathy.
In those with severe weakness, prompt treatment with intravenous immunoglobulins or plasmapheresis, together with supportive care, will lead to good recovery in the majority of people. Recovery may take weeks to years, with about a third having some permanent weakness. Globally, death occurs in about 7.5% of those affected
They haven’t done an autopsy yet, but at time of publishing this article, the New York Times is literally admitting – in paragraph 18 – that he appears to have actually died of a completely different disease, which may or may not have been triggered by the coronavirus.
But that’s not what the headline says.
That’s not what the first 17 paragraphs say.
Do you see how this works?
Do you understand what is going on here?
Anyone who ever tests positive for coronavirus, then dies for any reason, is recorded as having died from coronavirus.
The CDC admits this.
Madam Birx admits this.
That clip is five months old. They’re just doing this same hoax that they started out with. It never ends.
This is all a gigantic hoax! Every aspect of this is a hoax! I have yet to see one person who actually died “from COVID-19.” It’s always a headline that says the person died of this virus, then you read on, and find that actually, they died of something totally different and the media is just falsely claiming they died of coronavirus.
This situation is completely insane.
This is what people mean when they say it’s a hoax. They don’t mean that there is literally no virus. They mean that the media is totally and completely lying about all of it.
Occasionally, young people do die in freak events, like when they get Guillain–Barré syndrome. This is sad, but it happens. It has always happened. It has nothing to do with this new virus we’re all supposed to be scared to death of.
Part of life is that people die. It happens to everyone. You cannot stop it from happening by doing all of these bizarre measures.
The people have to face reality, they have to man up, we have to be allowed to move on with our lives. We can open the country back up, and then of course, anyone who prefers to lock themselves inside has the option of doing that, for as long as they want to do that. But the government has no right to make these decisions for us.
We are adults, we are human beings, we have a right to make decisions about how we live our lives.
By the way, I just want to say: Appalachian State is a beautiful campus.
It’s like something out of a fairy tale.
I wish I could go be a professor there, and teach Semitic Studies and Theology.
Maybe some day the world will be fixed, and I’ll be able to.
