Infectious diseases don't spread randomly. I'm glad that a lot of you don't know anyone with a COVID infection, or know someone who only had mild symptoms, but that doesn't mean everyone was similarly lucky. It is known that NYC had one of the highest amount of COVID cases and COVID deaths anywhere in the world, so it's not like it's some random American city. It's by far the most densely populated American city, has some of the highest reliance on public transportation, and is among the highest amount of foreign-born population. There's a number of reasons why NYC may have been hit harder.
And I mentioned this extensively a while back, although Excalibur seems to have been quicker to reply (and is completely on point as well), but those patients placed on ventilators are also not random selected among COVID patients but only those who are the sickest and already at the highest risk of dying. Intubating someone and connecting them to a ventilator includes putting a plastic tube down a person's throat, between their vocal cords, and into their windpipe (which is done most often by direct visualization). It has got to be about the highest risk procedure a healthcare provider can do in terms of exposing themselves to COVID, and one not done lightly.
And Roosh, I never said that you personally claimed it was a hoax, but "many people seem to think that COVID is a hoax," or are at least minimizing it's significance. I'm not sure exactly what about my prior post you think is emotional, and I can certainly understand a bit of skepticism towards anyone online claiming they are a doctor, but I'm also not going to dox myself, so it is what it is I guess.
No one has said the existence of the virus is a hoax.
But the coordinated mass global panic orchestrated by mass media and governments as an exceedingly needless disproportionate response was and still is seemingly without a doubt the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on humanity.
