I take my hat off to anyone that gets to 92 without pre-existing conditions.

Yeah it was almost rude to mention it. Old age itself is a risk factor for dying of Covid-19.

"As of Friday, there have been a total of 1,075 cases in the province, with 658 having made a full recovery, while 414 patients are still receiving treatment. "

 

So whats happened to the other 3 ?

658 + 414 = 1072

Numbers dont add up, seems to be a common trait.

658 ÷ 414 = 1072

Maybe they died?

 Some Covid info' from the Mayo Clinic:

"Treating COVID-19 at home: Care tips for you and others"

"Most people who become sick with COVID-19 will only experience mild illness and can recover at home. Symptoms might last a few days, and people who have the virus might feel better in about a week. Treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms and includes rest, fluid intake and pain relievers.

 

However, older adults and people of any age with existing medical conditions should call their doctor as soon as symptoms start. These factors put people at greater risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19."

Plus let us not forget all the lasting damage to lungs and so on. Quite a lot of people who recover have months and months of revalidation some never get back to normal. So please stop acting like its nothing. Yes MOST have no problem. But a lot do. Those people are never put in the stats just the dying so the deniers feel safer.

 

Early in 2021, researchers in Wuhan, China, reported that 76% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients had at least one symptom that persisted 6 months after acute infection, mostly fatigue or muscle weakness. "Studies of non-hospitalized patients have shown that anywhere from 35% to 50% of non-hospitalized patients had symptoms 2 to 4 months later," Navis noted.

Yes, obviously, particularly if you make it over 80. But in reality it's probably rare to literally die of old age. Old age makes a person more vulnerable but usually it's something like heart disease, cancer, Alzheimers, stroke, or in this case Covid-19.

How about lets not forget all the people who have caught the virus but have no symptoms...and also those that have it and have not been tested so also not in the figures.

That is for sure, lot we don't know. But people keep acting like covid is nothing and it only counts when someone dies. I know a few people who caught it and it took months for them to recover. I also know of people who recovered fast. But the constant pointing out of the deniers to death rates but forgetting that there are other consequences then just death is just sad.

 

This is not something you want to catch you might be lucky but quite a lot are not lucky (and im not talking about deaths) but long hospital stay and revalidation. Never getting back to normal. They should tally those people too. To show that this is serious. Too many people seem to want to make it look a lot less then it is because they hate it that bars are closed and they can't go out.

 

I am certainly not too worried because of with my health i should be ok. But its no guarantee some healthy people end up badly too.

Died of Covid-19, or with Covid-19?

There are many variables, made more confusing and misleading by the media and government. Pnuemonia, a major cause of death in the elderly, gets little notice, even when acquired in hospital after admission for an unrelated reason. Who knows the truth behind any of this? Death comes to us all... that is for certain.

Probably other areas of Thailand - Thai family members. This is very common - younger relatives bring home  covid to their elderly relatives, and having them die.

Of course death comes to us all sooner or later, but would his death have been later had his relatives possibly no transmitted Covid to him from their travels.  The world will never know.

At 87 that's cheered me up. Old age? I'm not looking forward to it..😁

I knew the guy who passed away, and got covid from him as well, but the worst is that his son knew he was not well for a few days, but refused to bring him to hospital!

Maybe he was frightened of the expence. At 92 he certainly would not have health insurance.

Wow, I guess Hua Hin has gone really downhill since I was last there, if it's better to be dead than go to Hua Hin...
