    Why does "A Hutch"  think anyone cares about his opinion on covid when he could not even pass a chem 1 level college class?

    A Hutch is a retarded, delusional redneck with a god complex who works at Walmart and spends hours a day telling people about covid , vaccines and masks. 

    He thinks he knows more than ACTUAL infectious disease doctors with 8 years of education and decades of training and experience from a few hours of google

    If he and all the other retarded rednecks with god complexes knew more than actual infectious disease doctors about covid, vaccines and masks they would just become infectious disease MDs and earn over 400,000 while getting 10X the respect than they do now.

    What's worse: the Spanish flu pandemic or the COVID-19 pandemic?

    I think, at this point, people are beginning to understand that having a healthy lifestyle will not save you from the virus, but will only strengthen the immune system and lessen the severity of producing symptoms. I'm just wondering if the Spanish flu was much worse than COVID-19 because, back then, there were no medical treatments aside from vaccines. I don't understand why the current pace of vaccinations are very slow, but it couldn't have been bad as compared back then, right? I've following the news ever since the pandemic started, and a lot of antiviral drugs were recommended, like hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir, dexamethasone, and then ivermectin. Do you think this pandemic is worse, as compared back then when there were no drugs to treat patients? Again, I'm talking about medical treatments, not vaccines, just to put things into perspective.

    I am sick. Whole household tested positive for covid on rapid test but I tested negative on rapid test?

    We are also waiting on the PCR tests. Is there still a good chance I could test positive on the PCR test if they all tested positive on the rapid test and I’m just as sick as they are?

    With so many people vaccinated why are we still closing places down and starting a 4th surge ?

    Favorite Answer:

    Yes, but the Supreme Court has ruled that churches can open if other places can.

    Why are we still closing places down?  The government officials don't understand illness and contagion, and they just want to look like they are doing something so that they can justify their salaries.

    If Trump supporters know so much more about infectious disease than actual doctors, why not become a infectious disease doctor? ?

    Since you are so much more intelligent and knowledgeable than actual doctors and scientists, get off your ***, go to college and then medical school and actually become an Infectious Disease doctor. Then tell your fellow Infectious Disease doctors and top scientists how to do their job and revolutionize the medical and vaccine research systems with your wealth of knowledge. You can get a $400,000 salary and get great benefits and tons of respect. 

    For REAL tho: Just because you barely passed H.S in rural Kansas, does not mean you know more than actual infectious disease doctors.

    Is taking vaccine the only option to prevent corona virus? ?

    Favorite Answer:

    No. Vaccine is for a long term prevention. It can't be the only option to prevent covid-19. Awareness may play a vital role here.

    Is my dad right about this pandemic?

    He is a physician specializing in infectious diseases. He has worked on the COVID vaccine and says that despite what you hear in the media the current vaccines only offer protection for 1-2 months. He says the virus just keeps mutating and getting stronger, and this pandemic is going to play out very similarly to the Black Death pandemic of the 14th century, and we will have over a billion deaths within the next 5 years. He spends a lot of time alone now, and cries a lot, and I can tell he is really wearing down. I'm so worried about both him and this world.

    Should I still get vaccinated for Covid if i’m young and healthy?

    I do go to school in person and I work in a very crowded essential place, so I’m exposed to plenty of people almost every single day. but i’m only 18 so even with No vaccine my odds of going to the hospital/dying are very close to zero. Should I still get the vaccine?

    How to relax during the pandemic?

    I keep on freaking out, my anxiety has heightened, and now I'm so paranoid. I've recently tested negative for COVID-19, but I'm still concerned because I know that you can still be infected if you've been exposed to someone who has it. I'm just mentally exhausted of the news, and I just wish this era of medical misinformation would end. I've recently done telemedicine because there was blood in my stools, and that alone made me paranoid that, maybe, I have COVID-19.

    How can I relax amid all this mass hysteria? Should I do meditation? How can I relax during this pandemic and all the medical misinformation? I'm just really tired, and the fear of not knowing is so great in me. Even getting a fever freaks me out because the news keeps on repeating that every little symptom means that you have COVID-19.
