Judy you have to remember just because 1100 cases of infection does not mean that any of them were negatively affected you can have covid without any symptoms and normally a healthy individual will recover with no ill effects.
I am not familiar with the USS Theodore but will take a look as to how many died and if they were even hospitalized which most cases of covid are treated at home just like a mild case of flu.
I spent some time researching the USS Theodore situation and as expected not easy to get the answers to real questions other than generic basic answers but it seems we can conclude from the Navys updates that indeed it is not as serious as it is made out to be when you look into it based on the numbers which are.
2393 total infections
Currently 1,579 recovered with others recovering fast (this is in line with the 99.7% recovery rate being seen around the world.
2 people in Hospital
So there are still 800 +- still infected with Covid yet only 2 are in hospital and this proves that most cases are not serious and will not require any hospitalization and they will recover on their own without any treatment.
I wanted more information on the death since the wording says died of Covid complications which indicates there was some other condition also but no other information was available.
So concluding out of almost 2500 people just one death only 2 in hospital and all the others have either recovered or are on their way to full recovery.
This is not a serious virus unless you are old, sick or have some underlying condition that puts you at risk.omegle
Where the island is concerned if covid got hold then I expect there would be some casualties ie the old and those that are sick but the virus would sweep thru and it would be over.
It would be much smarter to isolate those at risk and let healthy people get back to work as these actions are going to decimate Belize.
Another saving grace for the island is the heat since this is a respiratory virus it works best in colder climates and this can be seen by very few cases in hot countries like Thailand, Vietnam Malaysia, Haiti and other hotter climates.
I am a massive skeptic and just cannot understand why all this is happening for a mild virus that 99% of people will recover from if it was a true pandemic like the one in 1918 when 50 Million people died the reality of Corona Virus is out of 7.9 Billion population just 360,000 total deaths which is far from a Pandemic.
The damage to Belize and many other countries will be DEVASTATING and long-lasting, it will take YEARS to recover to bring things back to where they were.
Very sad and I think this is far from over as the new favorite scaremongering words of the day are
2nd WAVE will be worse than the first.
