    Basically zinc and Schweppe's tonic water. He does say the HCQ is valuable.

    Some of his rants are about how the media is lying -- example is the newborn in Louisiana born and died from Covid-19. The baby was preterm, and born at 22-weeks.

    I had the video on in the background while at work. I tuned out some of the rants, but listened to when he'd give "suggestions" on what helps.

    No idea what zinc and Schweppes means.

    That video was all over my hometown FB friend feeds.

    Pretty sure he's just a batshit chiropractor.

    Saw a French doc said he thinks it's worse for the obese.

    That seems like a pretty vanilla thought.

    More likely diabetic, breathing issues heart probs etc

    you're giving people too much credit

    Yes, I agree. I should say “wishing” or “hoping”.

    Take zinc and drink Scweppe's tonic water. It helps.

    I'm sure you've seen this floating around. Maybe I should buy stock in Schweppe's?

    Yep.  He's lying about his name (using some low-level actor's name as a stage name).  His real name is Eric Napute, and he has an undergrad degree from Logan College of Chiropractic.  Homie's not a doctor at all.

    Also, checking out his website, he's a fucking wackadoo.

    This about page has me LOLing pretty hard.  Talks about a shoulder injury causing him to miss out on his football career like he's Uncle Rico, all the while taking shots at "traditional medicine."  Says his outlook on medicine was changed when he met an unnamed chiropractor who "was able to put the shoulder into a state where it could heal itself."

    LOL  This guy is loony.

    Rush must be back from his cancer treatments - giving instructions to True Believers. 

     

    I'll stick with Dr Fauci'a opinion over the experts at Fox. 

     

     

     

    Be my guest.  Every number the government has given us has been wildly wrong.

    I stopped reading after this:

    In the face of a broadening consensus on both the left and the libertarian right that sees marijuana as mostly healthy and even a positive in some circumstances, Berenson argued that the evidence instead shows a link between the drug and serious mental illness and an epidemic of violence.

    I will wait until this subsides and see what the statistics are then. So far, Fox News has not been impressive with it's characterizing of this thing.  This article doesn't have a lot of credibility.

    Just had a video interview this morning with a guy who was released from the hospital a few days ago after having had it.  He lives close to New Rochelle, so it's no surprise he got it.

    Friend of mine had a nephew who was a college baseball player who caught it.  He was in great shape and in his early 20s.  Basically, he was physically pretty much exactly what you'd want to be for good odds at beating it.  Just passed away from it two days ago.

    Montgomery country health commissioner said today that the parades for celebrations (like seeing people celebrating birthdays) don’t fall into stay at home guidelines and need to be stopped immediately. The reaction online wasn’t pleasant.

    I guess our definition is going to be rewritten after this fucking thing is gone.  Healthy will just be defined as whether your immune system can take a beating without killing you.

    Coronavirus Pandemic: 5,512 cases in Ohio, 213 deaths

    About halfway down:

    • STOP THE PARADES: Such events that feature a line of vehicles filing past a child celebrating a birthday, for example, need to remain in line with the governor’s stay-at-home order, which states (among other things) that people should leave home only for essential activities. County Health Commissioner Jeff Cooper said “parades do not meet the intention of the order. They need to be discontinued. It’s not fun to say, but that’s the reality of where we are right now.”
