Everyone gets it but the American public.

Long Covid Disables Millions Worldwide, Even as Rates Ease, Study Shows. 

"The study, published Monday in the journal JAMA, helps explain why as many as 4 million Americans have dropped out of the workforce in the wake of the pandemic and why long Covid may cost $3.7 trillion in the US alone. More than 94 million cases and 1 million Covid deaths have been reported in the US, where the coronavirus infected almost 42,000 people a day on average in September. " 

The article goes on to say....

"The research is based on data from 1.2 million Covid patients in 22 countries gathered from 54 studies and two medical record databases, including from the US Veterans Affairs health system. More than 200 ailments have been linked to long Covid, but the study in JAMA collated information on three common clusters of symptoms. "

"It found that three months after a coronavirus infection, 3.7% of patients had ongoing respiratory problems, 3.2% had persistent fatigue with bodily pain or mood swings and 2.2% had cognitive problems, after adjusting for their health status before Covid."

“The pandemic will raise the baseline risk of disease and disability to a new level,” said co-author Ziyad Al-Aly, chief of research and development at the Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care System.

Even further down the article.

Long haul symptoms aren’t the only health threat to Covid survivors. Diabetes and life-threatening conditions including heart attacks, stroke and kidney damage are more common in Covid patients than those who avoided the pandemic disease. 

The Fed is raising rates for things they can not fix. Most of this inflation is from labor shortages and energy. But, raising rates is the only tool the FED has - so.. that's what they will do.

People think the Great Resignation is because people don't want to work. It's REALLY because the public treated workers like garbage and expendable. People ground them to the nubs. Why would they ever work in a public forward facing job again? In short - Why would they put their lives on the line for you?


  1. That last paragraph seems so simple to understand (my entire career has involved public interaction), but for some reason people that have never had to do it just can't get it.

  2. Wow.

    The world breaks my heart right now
