Are covid 19 deaths becoming the new norm?

Dear readers its Thursday yet again, I want to thank you all for reading and sharing my blog. By doing this you are helping to get the truth out there. You really are making a difference.

Last week I updated my blog saying that I was feeling much better. Sadly it didn’t last long though. I’ve relapsed again and I’ve now started another course of antibiotics. The liquid supplement that I’m taking is helping me, Ive got no doubt that I’d be much worse without it.

I’m really sorry to keep writing about this, but it’s my life at the moment. Depressing I know but its the truth and I really hope that I’m back to normal very soon.

To say that I have concerns about the lockdown being lifted again is a vast understatement. The death rates are still rising and I also suspect that the actual number of people infected has as well.

It’s easy to just go off the official figures and say that the infection rates are lowering, I get that, but I really do think that we could effectively double that amount because not everyone is tested.

The way that Covid 19 shows itself to individuals varies from person to person. Someone might have a cough, another doesn’t have a cough. Some people have a high temperature, others just have a slightly raised temperature. Some people have a bad headache, others don’t although they might have other symptoms such as being sick, having a sore throat and shortness of breath.

Because of these variations I’m sure that thousands of people don’t realise that they’re infected, this is probably because the government has been less than vague about sharing Covid 19 symptoms. As a result they’re still going out and spreading it in their local area. You can guarantee that the transmission figures are much higher than the official figures.

This weekend people will be able to go into their local pub again, whilst this is very good news for the pub licensee it isn’t for the customers. It’s going to be hard keeping to the new rules. Effectively the potential for people catching Covid 19 there is high.

However, the government doesn’t care though, what else should we expect. They’ve stopped televising the death rates in an attempt to brush Covid 19 under the carpet. Luckily people like myself haven’t forgotten and nor will we. It’s up to us to keep reminding them.

I have noticed something this week that concerns me deeply. Whilst talking to people and noticing comments online, the deaths of people due to Covid 19 related illnesses are quickly becoming normalised.

I’ll never understand how anyone can normalise death and suffering, especially large amounts of deaths like we are seeing now.

Is it a case of the its ok because it hasn’t affected me that runs rampant through society?

Are people scared so they become oblivious to it, trying to hide the fact that this is happening because its easier to deal with this way?

Is this happening because we’ve already been experiencing the deaths of thousands of people due to the benefit reforms, ESA and PIP assessments and reviews and Universal Credit related deaths?

Have we as a society become that used to death that it doesn’t matter anymore?

I’m not saying that everyone is like this though, thousands of people are angered by it just like I am, we are all pushing for change and recognition.

To be honest I find the normalising of death scary in itself because it devalues a human life. It’s easier for the government to not recognise each and every human life because it makes their job a lot easier.

Personally, like I’ve said before I do believe that the government are still pushing on with their herd immunity plans. We don’t mean anything to them, they see us as a burden upon society and expendable for their use.

So what do we do now?

We need to still continue to keep safe and follow the social distancing rules. If you need to go out, take precautions and do your own risk assessment. Don’t rely on the government or local government to do this for you. Both want commerce to begin asap.

We need to keep sharing the death stats. Whilst in reality they’re probably much higher than the official statistics its still important to share them. By doing this we are continuing to make people aware that its still happening.

We also need to share the stories of long term sufferers like myself. For some people the Covid 19 virus leaves the body after a few weeks with fatigue. This is awful in itself but for many of us it continues for months after the virus has left the body.

Personally I’m suffering from fatigue and stabbing pains in my lungs and other parts of my body. It hurts and no one can help you with it. I’ve been told that a hot water bottle might help but I don’t have one.

Other long term symptoms can be heart palpitations, brain fog, unexplained fatigue, nightmares, insomnia etc. This list isn’t exclusive though because so many people have so many other Covid 19 related health issues after contracting it.

I’ll leave this blog now with this. Be kind to each other, remember just because you might not have had a certain symptom doesn’t mean that someone else doesn’t have it.

We’ve got to remember that some people actually do believe the governments lies and deception. The blame for all of this falls heavily on the governments feet and its up to us to keep reminding them of this.

I’m sure that you agree with me that one death is a death too many.

Please keep safe.

Please read, share, tweet and email my blog. A huge thank you to everyone that already does this.

I run this blog on next to nothing, even more so now that I’m recovering from Covid 19.

For anyone who would like to donate there’s a paypal button at the top and side of this blog.

A huge thank you to everyone that has and does support my blog and campaign.

  1. Keep writing about your experience of Covid19. It’s Good to get the perspective of someone with the virus who is, like so many, dealing with it whilst being forced to live in poverty. Hang in there and keep up the good work.
