    I have been looking up on this Covid thing for sometime, trying not to get into all the political hype and agenda's surrounding it but, I know they are there.. 1st off several arrests have been recently made involving Chinese Nationals, and yes even our own citizens (as in laboratory professors) In cohorts with China they are considering the possibility that this was a direct attack on our economy in revenge for tariffs etc... and things that cost China economically, the last 4 years.

    Anyway enough of that, this article explains the use of Inhaled Corticosteroids as a front line treatment for Covid. and also goes into detail that those with Chronic lung conditions may not be at as much risk as originally thought. I've mainly been looking into this because I have COPD and Sleep Apnea and therefore the mask wearing is a huge concern for me, and also I thought that I would be at a greater risk of actually not only contracting this thing, but also fair much worse than others if I did. This may not be the case.. "And please note that I said may not be" But, evidence coming out and studies being done do suggest that those with these kinds of problems may not be at anymore risk of contracting or having a severe onset then anyone else. That in most cases of deaths there were other cormorbidities present which may of contributed to the cause of the severity of the illness/disease.. I just find this interesting.

    Also there are some claims by a doctor of 28 years that says he has been treating his patients with a ICS called Budesomide and has had great results, he sights that Taiwan, Singapore, and also Japan have had very few deaths associated with Covid.. So why are so many people dying here in the United States. The facts he states cannot be refuted as far as the amount of deaths, what are they (Japan etc..) doing differently then we are? I would suggest that whatever it is our government should get off their proverbial @$$E$ and find out and start doing it here in the States.

    Why are there only 1, 7, and 1000 deaths within much more densely populated areas, also Africa is another place with few deaths associated with Covid. Why are they pushing us toward a vaccine to return to normal life? Here is that article and there are references to several other articles within it. Please read and post your thoughts. I will add a thread containing the information also provided by the Doctor concerning treatment with ICS.. (Inhaled Corticosteroids).

    The biggest reason for the infection and death rate here in the US is that it is an election year

    In early Spring, my wife was sent to a respiratory specialist. That doctor started her on a BREO Inhaler. It seems to have helped.

    Yep, got COPD too Steve. I am incredibly careful about things and yes I wear a 95 mask. Luckily had a box of them in my shop.

    But, like the article says we may be no more susceptible to contracting it or having it get severe as the uncompromised folk do.

    I'll believe that when the Pope goes to Syria, converts to Islam and joins ISIS.

    I have a friend in CA who got it, beat it but will always have residual Cardio Pulmanary problems.

    They guy who owns the TRW M-21 I load, work on and shoot occasionally is an ER Doctor. I believe him far more than opinion. He's seen it, he's taking it very seriously.

    Steve Pandemics are real, so is Covid. There's a lot we still have to learn about it, because the new discoveries are coming day by day.

    BTW it's already mutating. Take it seriously, the alternative can be devastating. BUT... that choice is up to you.

    Interesting info and thanks for sharing. The name of that steroid (Budesomide) is actually Budesonide (with an "n") is case anyone is searching out more info on it.

    I actually take a generic form of Budesonide for my nasal allergies, as recommended by my ENT doc. It's supposedly safer (and less expensive) for long-term use than similar nasal steroids (Flonase, Nasalcort, etc). Anyway, just wanted to correct the spelling of the name.

    Lastly, Budesonide is not only used as a nasal spray. From online sources, Budesonide, sold under the brand name Pulmicort among others, is a medication of the corticosteroid type. It is available as an inhaler, pill, nasal spray, and rectal forms. The inhaled form is used in the long-term management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    Steve I’m lined up with Uncle Bob. Take this stuff seriously and don’t tempt fate. Too many years of Cowboys Killers and roll your owns for me. Heart failure, and I guess I always had asthma from allergies but I also have COPD and a little emphysema. My pulmonologist has had me on flovent and spireva for several years now. It’s really helped me. Gotta gargle after use so you don’t get thrush. Best to you, and for cryin out loud stay as far away as possible from whatever the hell bit Scaramouche!
