Up until today, i had not known anyone personally who had Covid.  Just friends of friends, etc.

I spoke to my former bowling teammate who told me he was in the hospital for 13 days with Covid.  Said he ran a mild fever, muscles ached like someone hit him with a mack truck, and had hallucinations, and of course a horrendous cough.  He was bad enough that they wanted to put him on a ventalator, but he said no, that he would fight through it.  He thought once he was on a vent, it would kill him.  He has been home for 5 days now, and thankfully he is doing and feels much better.  His wife was also diagnosed with Covid, her symptoms were mild, and did not require hospitalization.  When he left the hospital, all the medical staff lined up the halls and were cheering for him, (just like you see on tv), he said it was very touching.  He is 71 years of age, and do not believe him to have any underlying conditions.  He does smoke cigars.  He is a podiatrist and treats patients at their homes, mainly in the inner city of Detroit where it was a national hotspot, so him coming down with it did not surprise me.

Keith, I think there's a lot of layers to this. Something I don't hear anyone talking about is the World Bank Pandemic Bonds set to mature July 15th 2020.. I'll post a link below straight from the world banks own site. also I have some documents that are from the Rockefeller foundation that you might find interesting

I had a customer on my route pass away from the virus at age 50. A really wonderful woman who was loved by everyone she met. Left behind a husband and children. She will be VERY sorely missed.

Just talked to a friend of mine who recovered from Covid. 62 years old. He had some relatively nasty symptoms but didnt require hospitalization. He believes his wife also had it but no symptoms. They are getting tested next week to see if they could potentially donate plasma.

We lost a bowler to Covid.  His funeral was yesterday.  Great guy who bowled in the same league for 35 years.
