At 15 minutes in this fast-talking vitamin salesman with an MS gets mixed up about the total deaths versus the number of Covid-19 patients considered in this paper. This data is from a database of some hospitalized patients, 11% of which were hospitalized for Covid-19. Nowhere did anybody claim all patients in the database died from Covid-19, or that the database contained everybody in the US who got sick. All this number tells you is that their study looked at 540,667 patient records. The hospitalized total so far is 2,317,457, according to the CDC. Then the paper talks about the presence of co-morbidities and their risk ratio. We have known all this for over a year!
Then he talks about anxiety being a huge co-morbidity. But it's actually lack of restorative sleep that is a huge comorbidity, and that is a common side effect of anxiety disorders. That's exactly why many doctors have been recommending the use of Melatonin so you get enough sleep during the pandemic, not ignoring health information on the internet.
At about 16 minutes in he pulls a whopper out of his butt: He says all sorts of Covid comorbidities are because people are not living a healthy lifestyle of exercise, good nutrition, and of course buying all his vitamins. Nobody had to die, if they just did X, Y, and Z. Well most of those who died were old, and they had the usual sort of health conditions that do not go away because they decide to jog around the block and take some vitamins. Not to mention that lots of them were already doing things to control their health problems like taking high blood pressure meds or statins.
He really loves the idea of exercise and nutrition preventing illness, but researchers have found over 40% of young otherwise healthy Covid-19 victims who had recovered from mild or asymptomatic cases had signs of cardiomyopathy. Exercise is the LAST thing these people should do! Doctors recommend you take it easy and refrain from exercise for a few months following Covid-19 to give your heart a chance to heal.
The myth that most of the deaths were not caused by Covid-19 is because of people not understanding how death certificates are supposed to be filled in. Doctors are supposed to list everything. For example, if somebody dies from drowning, they list respiratory arrest or cardiac arrest. That was the immediate cause of death, but being underwater for 20 minutes was the main cause! When people died from Covid-19, almost nobody actually died from the viral infection. By the time symptoms showed up, their immune system had killed most of the virus. They died from immune system over-reaction that caused cytokine storm, endothelial damage, pneumonia, heart and lung damage, and clotting leading to all sorts of organ failure. But none of that would have happened without Covid-19.
