I did the research about this new Coronavirus at least 3 weeks ago, well before these crazy conspiracy theories were polluting the headlines. My inspiration came from a deep desire to question everything we were reading and hearing in those early days. I was then and am today even more skeptical about where this insidious virus originated.
I will give you the facts that I discovered and links to the TRUE information upon which I have based my thoughts, and then you can decide for yourself what YOU think is a reasonable explanation about the origin. What was my motivation for doing the research? It was not for altruistic reasons, I’ll admit – but for more selfish reasons. These play into my zeal to understand Covid-19.
Why I’ve Been Driven to Get the Facts About The “New” Coronavirus: No Spleen – I Die
I had an accident several years ago that resulted in an “emergency trauma splenectomy”. You win one of these nifty operations if your spleen gets ruptured. The ER surgeon must get to your spleen which has been ripped from under your heart and is near your spine. He moves your intestines and other various organs aside so that he can remove the spleen and reattach the splenic arteries. Non-traumatic splenectomies can be much less invasive, but a trauma splenectomy aorta off the heartand sew that may be in his way in order to remove the spleenget to your heart to sew everything back together (sans spleen, obviously). They lost me twice on the operating table, and pumped 9 litres of blood into me to “stabilize’ my inner cavity in order to operate.
The spleen filters your blood and importantly it regenerates red-blood cells when you are fighting an infection or disease, etc. It is by far the organ recognized as our front line of defense against cases of pneumonia, upper respiratory infections, and meningitis. Without a spleen, I am vaccinated to protect me from 23 strains of pneumonia, and I am 4 times more likely to develop a Septic infection than you . My primary doctor warned me quite early – while the virus was sweeping China – that my age, diabetes, and no spleen, resulted in a potential 90% mortality rate should I get infected. That happy news would inspire anyone, I think, to want to know all they could about this Covid-19.
This virus did not act like most others due to the insidious way it could infect hosts who may not present symptoms, and thus result in carriers who could infect countless others unwittingly. This stealth aspect of the virus and other qualities about it certainly seemed unusual and different than previous coronaviruses.
Early rumors related to the virus having been engineered, and these were quickly dispelled by scientists. Was China even capable of advanced experimentation with such a deadly virus, I wondered? Here is what I discovered about Research and Experimental Labs – which I found quite unbelievable.
