I tested positive for Covid-19 last Thursday. I used a home test.

I think the first symptoms were last Monday.

After I took the test I called my GP's office and did a telemedicine session.

"Take Tylenol and Nyquil, she advised." I followed her instructions.

I've been self-quarantining, outside of making a curbside pickup of some edibles.

Today, I spent almost four hours at the hospital so I could get a treatment of Regeneron Monoclonal Antibodies.

While I was waiting, there were a lot of people in the ER who were not wearing masks, or only covering their mouths.

One guy sat about six feet from me. No mask. "You might want to put on your mask..." I started.

"I'm eating," he replied.

"...because I have covid." I finished. He put his mask on.

I looked around at the other people in the room with masks.

Stupid, stupid stupid, I thought.

I was tested again-- and it confirmed the home test.

And I was X-rayed. My chest.

The doctor came back and said there was a little bit of stuff in my lungs-- could be pneumonia.

Robb, if you don't have one, it would be good to have an oximeter on hand. They can give you an early warning if the Covid is surging. $10 to 15 at Walmart.

Yes, and zinc too, which helps vitamin D do its magic to kill the virus. They are synergistic.

Even if you don't quite believe it, take Airborne and extra vitamin D (not in Airborne). On a short-term basis it won't overload your body. My doctor recommends against taking Airborne long-term because too much zinc can actually harm you in other ways. But I've taken it whenever I had even the slightest hint of a cold coming on. This is pretty hard to duplicate in a clinical trial because there are false positives and earlier intervention than would be possible in most trials; i.e. doctors would have to be watching a patient every 6 hours or so to detect such early onset, or deliberately infecting them, but that would not duplicate real world conditions.

I believe you said you were practicing vegitarianism lately, and if so, that might be depriving you of necessary quantities of zinc - which, as we get older, are harder to absorb. Vitamin D deficiency is practically endemic, particularly in winter months when people have far less exposure to the sun. It's one reason there are so many colds and flu in the winter. Oh, I just got my flu shot yesterday. It's predicted to be a bad flu season. If you haven't gotten a flu shot yet, you should. It's possible to get both flu and Covid-19 and a flu shot has been shown to have some benefit even for Covid immunity, though the vaccine for that is much better.

Nothing is 100% protective, and the vaccine's efficacy diminishes over time, time which is still being determined with this new disease.

We are all part of an experiment now. But one thing is undeniable, even healthy people can get it, though your chances of recovery are FAR greater if you don't have co-morbidities. The CDC stopped defining age alone as a co-morbidity in the summer of 2020 and the death rates of people 70+ without co-morbidities is actually better than that for younger people with co-morbidities.

Another thing that is undeniable: that even with the vaccine and better treatments, there are enough unvaxed people, more contagious variants (99% of cases are Delta variant now), and people like yourself with breakthrough cases, etc., that hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19 during Biden's first year as president, ending 1/19/22, will equal or even exceed the hospitalizations and 400,000 deaths from Covid during the last year of Trump's presidency, which coincided almost exactly to the day with the earliest Covid cases.

Johns Hopkins is reporting ~713k Covid deaths now.

Take care of yourself.

So sorry Rob--that's got to be right frightening.

Many hospitalized with COVID have been found to be low in vitamin D. If you're not already doing so, you might consider supplementing with vitamin D3/K2, vitamin C, zinc, and quercetin.

Thanks for the suggestion.

It saddens me to read that you have COVID. I wish you speedy recovery.

You have done an excellent job to keep OEN running.

Good comments, especially are posted above. Take all the necessary vitamins.

COVID comes back in different forms. We need to fight it.

Stay strong, you have many good years ahead of you.

Rob, if you really do have covid and its not just another of the so many false positives, do yourself a favor and see if you can't get Ivermectin and/or Hydroxychloroquine. I have read and heard from so many highly credible sources that both Ivermectin and Hydroxycloroquine are extremely effective in treating covid. If I were in your situation, that is definitely what I would do. And there are many OEN readers and writers that would do the same. So don't fool around. This might be serious. Many highly accredited doctors and immunologists and virologists say Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are the absolute best way to go.

If you go with either Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine, I am positive you will be just fine.

Isn't it a shame the CDC does not approve, even bans, ivermectin and HCQ when they have proved to be effective in other nations? They have even demonized Ivermectin as a "horse medicine". They will, if they haven't already approved Merck's new "miracle" pill, Molnupiravir which was developed several years ago in the lab of Emory University as a horse treatment! The government has already given $1.7 Million to Merck for their "miracle". It costs Merck around $17 to manufacture a "course" (a 5 day treatment). Merck is charging the government $712.00 per course! Is this about health or profits?

Am sorry to hear this, Rob. I shall pray for your full and complete recovery. Some people in my greater family and friends circle who are older than you, and likely not as physically active, came down with it. They have all recovered at home after outpatient treatment. Only one had to admitted to ICU and he has bounced back.

God bless you.

Warmest regards,

Well, my first thought, Rob, is I hope you're okay.

My second thought, once I was assured you're okay, was that I hope this is not another pitch for funds, My social security (RIB) starts up in a week and I'll try to budget in some funding for OED. Us old geezers have to stick together. If things have seemed to you lately as frankly hallucinatory as they've been seeming to me, you know hat I mean about sticking together. (Have aliens arrived?)

The other thing is, I'm a Johns Hopkins certificated Contact Tracer (no thit), so I now have a few questions for you. In private, of course. Let's hope Zoom meetings can't transfer the virus.

Whoa! Did you see that?

Dear Rob

I hope you are feeling better , with time and the treatment of doctors you should be better by now and will be better with time.

I noticed a long list of friendly advise about medications.

Pleas just take what your doctor prescribes for you . They have seen enough patient during last two years , and they are not experimenting on patients any more.

please just follow up with your own doctors advice.

Just rest, rest ,rest

I am far from impressed with my primary care provider's support. I did two telemedicine sessions and both felt more scripted to cover the asses of the Hospital that bought the practice than helping me. They were clueless about me getting the monoclonal antibody treatment.

After ten days of symptoms and two days after getting the monoclonal antibodies I still have a chest cough that sounds nasty. I have more energy and people tell me I sound a lot better, but this is lingering and I'm still quarantined, which a real pain.

Dear Rob

I am really sorry you are feeling that bad. Some idiot screwed up something in China and got the virus out of the lab. Trump's incompetence and magical thinking caused more than 600,000 people to die and it is not over yet.

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer , you are old enough to know that in the past whoever was diagnosed with lung cancer was dead within a few month .

My sister who lives in Maryland got me hospitalized in John Hopkins Hospital . After two years of being Cut , Poisoned and Nuked , I survived the damn thing.

If your doctors are failing you , go to one of those reputable centers and get yourself proper treatment. Homeopathic medicine gives you just expensive urine.

I have lost too many family members to Covid in Iran , because of additional stupidity of Iranian government.

I hate seeing friend and family getting sick because of other peoples screw up.

Hey Rob,

Sorry to hear about your condition, but from reading your articles over the years, it's obvious that you're of strong mind and body. So I know you will be able to tough it out and be OK.

I assume you had been vaccinated. Did you have two or three shots? And were you around others who didn't have their shots?

Best of luck!

John

Had both Pfizer jabs. Was waiting to get a different vaccine for the booster. Probably Moderna.

And yes, I was around people who were not vaccinated-- though I've tried repeatedly to persuade them.

I too am sorry to hear Rob, or anyone gets ill, but am getting a little annoyed at those insinuating the non-vaxxed are transmitting this to the vaxxed. It is not only feeding the propaganda but is a tad silly to insinuate that someone who is unprotected should transmit something to someone who is protected. It might be the protection is not performing what it has been told us.

As more information comes out around the world of high vaccination rates and high rates of covid patients who have been vaccinated when will it begin to sink in these "vaccines" are not helping, in fact, maybe detrimental to one's health? They are proving to not protecting one from contracting covid, they are not preventing one from transmitting covid, and they do not appear to be lessening the symptoms of covid based on the number being hospitalized. Look at Israel where 96% of those hospitalized are vaxxed or Waterford, Ireland where 99.7% are vaxxed and it has the highest total hospitalized. One can also look at a recent review of a panel of the FDA where one of the panelists cited the vaccine caused more deaths than were saved. Regardless of these findings, it is still approved as being safe and pushed, nay forced, on people. Something is wrong here and someone who is concerned for the health of our people needs to do a thorough study to determine the effectiveness and safety of these vaccines as all indications are, presently, they are not either effective or safe.

Rob points out another matter that should concern all of us and that is our healthcare officials have approved no at-home treatment for this sickness even though several, ivermectin and HCQ, have been used successfully in other nations. It is almost as though hospitalization is the desired route our healthcare authorities are hoping for.

That said I pray for a speedy and full recovery for Rob.

I'm really f*cking glad that I was fully vaccinated when I came down with this. My story might be very different if I had not been vaccinated.

I'm glad that you had the right to choose and you made the decision you considered was right for you. It appears as though it is helping you. Others who took the jab were not so fortunate.

What I am concerned about is those who feel those who have decided to not take the jab for whatever reason are a detriment, even a domestic terrorist, to our society. Just as you had the opportunity to exercise your sovereign right to choose why aren't others?

I might add that our government is committing a crime against humanity by forcing people to have an experimental medical procedure injected in their body. Yes, it is still an experiment that we are all being a part of. You are a part of the experiment bodies and I am a part of the control group. Of course if they can eliminate the control group there will be no basis for determining the success or failure of the test.

Meanwhile, I hope you have a speedy recovery. Prayers are with you.

You say, "Others who took the jab were not so fortunate." Do you know how many people suffered allergic or deleterious effects who were vaccinated? Less than 1%. Do you know how many died? Far less than 1% (0.0018). Compare that to the hundreds of thousands of people who have died or suffered for weeks on end who were not vaccinated. Not even close! Just look at all the "proud" anti-vaxxers who recanted on their deathbeds and begged their friends and families to get vaccinated.

C'mon, use your common sense! Nothing is 100% safe, but we base our lives on probability, not possibility. And it's quite obvious that it is more probable that you will get sick or die if you don't get vaccinated.

You also say ""our government is committing a crime against humanity by forcing people to have an experimental medical procedure injected in their body." Wrong! The government has not made vaccines mandatory. As a result, you have millions of brainwashed ideologues running around spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories. And then using "freedom" as a justification. As if freedom is absolute and it's OK to yell fire in a crowded theater. But this has nothing to do with freedom and everything to do with common sense. We are in an emergency situation, pal. And in an emergency you proceed with the most probable course of action to solve the problem.

My concern is how the powers that be have driven a wedge between the people making those who have made the choice to not be vaxxed as some sort of villain. The way they are pushing so hard to get that experimental medical liquid into everybody should be alerting to all. Instead, it has those who have decided to be seduced turn against those who have not been. Talk about being brainwashed listening to against actually feeling the unvaxxed are transmitting the sickness to those who have been "protected" in reality is vacant of common sense. If the unprotected area problem against the protected the protected aren't very protected. In fact, studies have shown the protected are in reality the shedders and are more a problem.

The vaccine is nothing more than an experimental medical gene therapy treatment hence falls within the definition of a crime against humanity according the Rule 92 of the ICC.

"The government has not made vaccines mandatory." That statement is so absent reality I'm stunned and have no comment. As for your example of freedom vs common sense that, too, leaves one dumbfounded as suggesting taking the jab in order to have freedom is the common sense thing to do. First, common sense tells you that you chose accepting a bribe in order to have something you should have in the first place - freedom.

Second, common sense has been absent during this "pandemic" as the fears instilled by the MSM, a few bought and paid for "scientists", the CDC, our government heads, and others have blown an illness that has proved to have a 99% survival rate into something people should give up their sovereign rights in order to stay alive and should be willing to give up a quality of living standard as well as yet to be answered health issues.

Your interpretation of what I said is so illogical and convoluted it's not even worth commenting on. I assume you haven't been vaccinated, so I'll ask you just one question: If you get Covid and are dying from it, would you advise your friends and family to get vaccinated or not?

Dennis,

Thank you for speaking the "unspeakable:" that which is not to be said in "polite company."

Globalresearch.ca has a number of articles on these issues that are worth contemplating.
