The thread wasn’t political until a few decided to talk about masks and vaccinations. You (Royal You) choose what to post. You choose to respond. You choose what you say. You can also choose to ignore a post or to respond in a positive manner.

Once someone had COVID, no finger pointing or disagreeing about masks and vaccines will get rid of it.

Yep, I think a healthy dose of tolerance and kindness applies to all .
Prayers being sent for your Mom and yours.

So sorry about your mom --this happened to my family member as well. She became briefly ill with the first shot then deathly ill with the second. She pulled through but still deals with some side effects and has to take meds daily now. Hopefully it will continue to get better with time. Prayers and well wishes to your family!

All I'm going to say on this topic is the source of the infection was proven through contact tracing. Many people became ill with Covid in her building, including her daughter (who survived) and many passed away after having contact with these workers.

Can’t we reign it in?

Thoughts and prayers for Bill Phillips and his family.
You are so right!

There are risks and benefits with all our health decisions. Be kind.
Jackie - I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she recovers completely and soon. It gets so much harder as we get older.

A cloth mask only helps if one sneezes or coughs into the mask to stop the water droplets from spraying directly onto others. Most people probably pull the mask down when they cough or sneeze because they don't want to wear a wet mask.

We don't know what type of medical treatment Bill has received, many liberal doctors refuse to provide treatments based primarily on their political beliefs. Best practice is for each of us to do the research on available treatments and discuss treatment options with our doctors before getting the virus.

We also don't know if Bill had any types of deficiencies. Many people are low in zinc and D3. These have been proven through testing to help reduce symptoms of Covid. We don't know what precautionary measures (if any) he took to build up his immune system.

Sadly, I will probably get some negative feedback from my post and there will probably be people that no longer want to associate with me. However, I am going to speak the truth as I see it.

I've read posts here in this forum where pro-maskers have wanted to inflict violence by slapping people that don't wear masks. Many in this group do not believe in allowing others to have a differing opinion. There is no free discourse. That's another reason to stay away from posting threads about Covid. It creates too much disharmony. Instead of building up relationships, it tears people apart.
Probably because your "truth" is some regurgitated nonsense spouted by an ignorant faction of the population who blatantly disregard actual. scientific. evidence.

But please, do go on...
