    They probably also had other serious/chronic health concerns.

    Italy showed that 99.2% had at least one other serious health problem.

    Deaths
    Influenza Comparison - not COVID19

    In Australia, influenza on average causes 1,500 to 3,000 deaths, about 18,000 hospitalisations and 300,000 GP consultations1 each year.

    Note:
    Deaths calculated by estimating the rate of mortality caused by influenza among those aged 50-64 years (1.3% of all deaths) and those 65 and over (2.8 % of all deaths)2; and applying this to the most recent Australian mortality data, whereby it is estimated that 132,662 Australians (16,964 aged 50-64; 115,698 aged 65 and over)4 within this age group died in 2008.

    Interesting. The NORMAL influenza for 50-64 year-olds has the same 1.3% death rate as the Coronavirus does for 50-59 year-olds:

    reports out of china, the true death numbers being around 44000.
    Truck loads of Urns have been seen delivered to funeral parlors with tens of thousands of People in china collecting ashes from funeral homes in wuhan.
    cant trust bloody communists.
    A number of countries Including the US are looking at tough trading restrictions with China as retaliation after this blows over.

    It is really horrible... Do you think some supplements or maybe vitamins may help improve your health and resist it? I have found some interesting and helpful things for it here, and maybe you can recommend something to me. What do you think?

    Save your money.
    Free sunshine for your Vitamin D needs.
    Eat vegetables (Not Fruit) high in Vitamin C (Broccoli etc)


    Please consider that we have a Northern and Southern flu season (For A Reason) which is directly related to the amount of UVB available to the body.
    When the sun angle is low (Winter) the body lacks Vitamin D.
    When the sun angle is high (Summer) the body does not lack Vitamin D.
