Most of the people that I know who have tested positive for COVID-19 this Summer haven’t had any symptoms. Or, they have had only one or two minor symptoms, including a low fever. I’m going to share a few COVID-19 thoughts.
Much like the common cold, I doubt this virus can be stopped or eliminated. I believe the best we can hope for is taking place right now. Thousands of people testing positive and surviving the virus. Here is this hemisphere, we are coming to the end of Summer. Here in Denver, we have been dealing with a heatwave. Temperatures in the high 90’s have been a daily occurrence. Can this be the reason for so many asymptomatic individuals? After all, coronaviruses thrive during cold temperatures, not Summer. This is how the common cold arrived at its name in the first place.
I theorize this. By catching COVID-19 during the Summer, immunity can be achieved before the cold and flu season. Thereby possibly saving entire households. And if that’s true, wearing masks during the Summer is not wisdom. Of course, pre-existing conditions can change everything.
Eventually, everyone will catch this virus. Better to catch it during the Summer. Nature tends to thin the herd, particularly during the cold of Winter.
