What COVID Does To The Body (First Edition, November 2022)
An Incomplete and Growing Resource
One of the more unhinged and deranged fantasies of many COVID denialists and minimizers is that being repeatedly infected with COVID is simply no big deal, especially in children, and we should all just quietly accept this “new normal” of being repeatedly infected with the virus SARS-CoV-2 and the vascular, multisystem disease it causes called COVID-19.
This is obviously obscene, especially as the virus has only been in circulation for a few years. As I explained in the Introduction to the Pandemic Accountability Index, it takes time to “do the science,” and going into year 4 of the pandemic, we now have an incredible mountain of research that explains just what COVID-19 does to the body and the permanent harm it can leave.
So you have to have one hell of a conspiracy theory complex to seriously suggest that everything listed here is somehow, all of it, elaborate works of fiction - and all of your favorite pro-COVID influencers insist that none of this exists, or matters, at least more than supposed delusions of “normalcy.”
Below is a list of the types of harm this disease can inflict upon you, organized and sourced for your convenience.
(Safety & Health Magazine) Study reveals high COVID-19 mortality rates among labor, retail and service workers - so working class people are much more likely to die.
(Scientific American) The Number of Children Orphaned by COVID Keeps Rising - from January 2020 to May 2022, over 10.5 million children worldwide lost primary or secondary caregivers to COVID.
(medRxiv) Estimating the number of breakthrough COVID-19 deaths in the United States - From April 04, 2022, an estimate of 80-100,000+ deaths from breakthrough infections in the vaccinated.
GENERAL DISABILITY & LONG COVID:
(medRxiv) Long COVID in Children and Adolescents: A Systematic Review and Meta-analyses - Prevalence of Long COVID in children/adolescents is 25.24%
(The BMJ) Parosmia—a common consequence of covid-19 - smell & taste loss, aka brain damage.
HEART & CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH:
PREGNANCY & REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH:
(Fortune) Long COVID could be leading to a wave of erectile dysfunction as the pandemic invades our sex lives - big “Children of Men” vibes
(Fatherly) COVID May Be Messing With Men’s Fertility, Study Suggests - Reduced sperm count
So this is what being infected with COVID-19 can do to your body, potentially permanently. Not a single pro-COVID influencer ever bothers to consider this mountain of evidence in their endless tweets, Youtube videos, Substack diatribes, or whatever else public decrees they make as they rally against basic pandemic measures such as PPE or quarantine.
As the Biden Administration has fully adopted the utterly deranged delusion of these maniacs and adopted a mass, repeated infection approach to America’s population, what we are seeing now is the slow crumbling of the nation’s health playing out in realtime.
Brain, heart, immune, kidney, and even skin damage, as well as chronic illness and disability is what millions of Americans have already had inflicted upon them, with plenty millions more primed to experience their health go out the window in the years to come.
As the Pandemic Accountability Index continues to roll out, this compilation will continue to expand, and is something to keep in mind as we dive into the depravity and delusions of those who chose to side with a virus instead of their communities.
