Who Is At Increased Risk for Severe COVID-19 Illness?


People Who Are at Increased Risk for Severe Illness


Everyone is at risk for getting COVID-19 if they are exposed to the virus. Some people are more likely than others to become severely ill, which means that they may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die. We learn more about COVID-19 every day, and as more information becomes available, CDC will continue to update and share information about risk for severe illness.

  1. Interesting work being done by Dr Lawrence Broxmeyer. Using data from all over the world, he has observed strong, but as yet non-peer reviewed studies, that Covid doesn’t exist but is looking more and more like tuberculosis, a mycobacterium and not a virus. Obviously, this could be a game changer in the battle against a currently tormenting disease entity. Countries mandating usage of Bacillus-Calmette-Guerin vaccines have vastly lower “Covid” populations. BCG is used against tuberculosis…….

  2. I would also submit that the average diet and leisure activities of Americans do not support a strong and healthy immune system.
