My sister and her husband are 7 days into their quarantine. Now, my cousin and her husband have both tested positive with my brother-in-law’s sister being added to the outbreak. There have been two community deaths due to the virus on top of our cases. At least three of the people infected in my family at this time, are members of the education community.
This is a sad situation. I wish Trump the best, but part of me is so angry right now. Opening up schools was such a bad move. If he gets better he needs to rethink the steps he has taken to thrust COVID back into the mainstream. It is one thing to get COVID from going to a party, but another thing completely to get it from working. Keep in mind, Texas schools are not closing when they get cases. Cases are rising again and nobody seems to have the strength to say it’s time to back up.
A lot of people keep chanting about mild cases of COVID as if mild cases are a walk in the park. These so called mild cases can come with 101 to 104 fevers that last for days. My sister and her husband are still having fever and they are on day 7 or 8. Tell me what flu ever made you have fever for longer than a few days with medication? That is the difference. My family has pneumonia brought on my the COVID which is due to the inflammation inside their body. When people talk about about COVID 19 being the cause of death and then things like pneumonia being the real reason, they do not understand that COVID causes the pneumonia. If you would picture a bite from a venomous snake and think about how the venom attacks the body, you would understand how COVID attacks the body.
As always be safe, and thank you for caring about my family. Remember you owe it to your family to stay healthy. Political wars are not the issue, the issue is surviving this virus.
It was bound to happen at some point, due to the lackadaisical attitude regarding COVID-19, President Donald Trump and his wife are now positive for the virus. There are a lot of feeling flooding the country tonight. Some of the feelings are of fear and sorrow, while others are unremorsefully pleased with finding out the President has now contracted COVID-19.
Some of us fall into the next category, which wants to see him live to learn from his past mistakes. Having a family member with COVID-19 is hard. You count days until their quarantine ends because you want to make sure they make it out alive. I find myself thinking about my sister all of the time and calling or texting every day. While it is understandable why some people would feel conflicted about their feelings regarding Trump’s fight with COVID, we still must not forget that he is someone’s father.
I hope this is a lesson for the people who blindly follow Trump. One of his downfalls was not wearing a mask often enough. He made fun of Biden on Tuesday night about always wearing a mask. Well, that mask is the one chance you have at slowing the spread of COVID-19. I cannot say it will end it, but it will limit the number of cases.
While a lot of us are thinking about Trump, I cannot help but think about the people at the rallies. Someone had COVID at one of the events that Trump visited, and we know that someone managed to spread it within the White House. How many others caught the virus? As a typical member of society, we do not have money or power to get us the best medical attention for this virus. However, some of us are still flirting with the chance of getting sick by going to a large gathering.
We are living in a difficult time. Our circle of trusted leaders is at an all-time low. At this point, the only thing we can do is listen to the person who seems to care about our wellbeing the most. I saw tweets from Trump tonight that included a seriousness in his stance on COVID, which has been absent in prior months.
I am glad to see he is taking it seriously, but part of me wonders if it is serious because now he is infected. Nevertheless, he is the leader of our nation, and I will pray for him tonight. He needs to get better so he can witness the fear and sadness of being separated from his loved ones. Perhaps then he will understand why COVID-19 is an issue that still needs attention.
New developments that need studying by the government would be traces of COVID-19 turning up in bodies of water. Another needed answer would be to understand the mutation that makes it more contagious. These are just two things that our government should be looking at today and over the next few months. https://www.foxnews.com/health/traces-coronavirus-lake-superior-water
So, he needs to get better and trace this virus. We need a real reaction to help us understand the steps we need to take to stay safe.
If you have been wondering why America has an anger problem, look no further than our leader President Trump. Trump’s debate performance last night cleared up so many questions regarding the recent chaotic atmosphere in states across America. Trump’s telling the Proud Boys to “Stand Back and Stand By” showcased an allegiance with the group, which is known to cause as many incidents as their rivals. With his link now reinforced by those little four words, people can no longer defend the President against causing some of the unrest.
Biden was annoyed by the tactics of President Trump. While he might have said some out of character things here or there, he still managed to talk policy. People watched the debate because they wanted hear about policies that would help move the country past COVID-19. Instead we got a one-sided show. One person was trying to talk policy and the future of America, while the other was trying to talk about anything other than policy.
The 90 minute debate felt like 180 minutes by the time it was over. Trump was an absolute mess. If he wasn’t responding like a ten year old, he was giving Biden grief about his son being a drug addict. There are numerous people in America with mental health issues, and substance abuse issues. To hear a president talk down on a population of people by judging them at their lowest moments shows just how uncaring he is about his citizens. Not only is it disrespectful to bring that type of hardship into a conversation, but it speaks loudly about the mindset of the person doing the talking.
America has a problem and the only way to solve it is to replace Trump as President. The people of this country deserve better and America cannot stand four more years of this sort of leadership.
As for my own struggle with COVID-19. My sister and her husband are now on day 5 of their quarantine and her husband’s sister has now also tested positive for COVID-19. These are the issues we needed to hear Trump address. The country needed to understand why he opened schools, only to turn around and see many of them come back with cases of COVID. Trump has no defense and this is why we are seeing him push attention to anything other than the failures, he has helped to bring to our country.
Listen to the podcast for more information.
This is kind of a hard time for us, but I want to keep you updated. My sister and her husband are on day three of their 14 day quarantine. So far nobody needs to be hospitalized, so that is a good thing. As for anything else, it is not like the flu. It is setting up inflammation inside their entire body. COVID is a beast, any prayers you wish to throw their way would be welcomed. We will keep it positive with positive thoughts flowing,
The only thing I want to focus on right now is removing Trump from office before this happens to more families. No family should have to go through something so stressful without the ability to see and comfort their loved ones. It sucks.
