Why are you still publishing haltruths and lies?
Yahoo posted a story titled 5 COVID Myths Busted by experts it under Yahoo life Canada Style.
First myth masks don't work no problem with that.
Second Myth the death rate id tiny
I don't have a problem with them trying to disprove this one but the arguments they make are rediculous. They use florida as an example that Florida has the highest death rate of this pandemic. Ok but what is the percentage? If it's less than 2 to 3 percent or near that I'm willing to take my chances. Secondly nearly everyone who is dying of covid now is unvaccinated. Well that may be a mostly true statement they do not distinguish between those unvaccinated and those that are unvaccinated but have had COVID and recovered. A study from israel suggests less than one percent of new covid cases were from people that had covid and then recovered.
Myth 3 its only dangerous for old people. I don't know many people actually saying that. Most people are pointing out it's most dangerous to people with comobidities. Which has the highest death rate in any demographic and that includes older americans.
Myth 4 its just like the flu. Yes this is the major Myth they try to debunk. However as in all these "Myths" Yahoo or the writer fails to include those people that have contracted COVID and showed no sign of being sick. Which the CDC has stated that could be as high as 40 percent so they aren't including that as a number or percentage in their "facts". At the start of this hospitals and coroners were labeling nearly every disease caused death as having a high significant contributing factor in the persons death. They even classified a motorcycle accident death as being caused by COVID.
Myth 5 Ivermectin cures COVID.
Lol prove it doesn't. There is enough anecdotal evidence that suggests it may in fact kill the virus.
Yahoo posts it isn't approved for treating viruses well vitamin C isnt approved to treat colds or flu. There are thousands of drugs that aren't approved to do this or that but they are still effective to treat other diseases off label. And then says taking large dosages can cause serious harm. Well hate to tell you folks drinking large amounts of WATER can cause serious harm also. Just as taking chemtherapy or radiation therapy. Large doses will kill you in the same way.
