What doctors have to say about ‘deliberately’ catching COVID-19

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - New data cited by the CDC from Kaiser Permanente says the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is 91 percent less likely to kill those infected, compared to Delta. And this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert said it's likely almost everyone is going to get Omicron.

That statistic and prediction from Dr. Fauci has some people wondering: should they try to catch highly-transmissible Omicron to get being infected over with? Doctors say, not so fast.

"Is it a good idea to try to get Omicron to get over this pandemic and get back to a normal life? The answer is unequivocally, no, it's not a good idea,” said Dr. Chris Thomson, Vice President & Physician Executive at Centura Health.

One of the reasons you shouldn't take that gamble is because you have no idea what variant you might catch, and there's never any guarantee about how your body will react to any virus.

"Every once in a while someone that -- and this has happened with Omicron as well -- might be younger, that might have no medical problems, becomes critically ill and even might die,” said Dr. Thomson.

Plus, we still don’t know what having Covid now could mean for our health in the future.

"I think intentionally trying to get Covid, worries me for the individual in their own health and potential risk, not only now, but perhaps down the road with illnesses or problems that we might not even be aware of yet," said Dr. Thomson. "It also would probably lend to extending this current wave"

Even though Omicron seems to be milder, it's still highly transmissible and could pose an unnecessary strain on hospitals and their staff.

"Let's say, even if it causes half of the hospitalizations from those who get infected, but it infects twice the number of people, we're still talking about the same number of individuals potentially coming into the hospital, even if we call it a milder illness," said Dr. Thomson. "So overwhelming or straining our resources at the population level for our health care systems or hospitals is definitely a concern."

New hospital admissions in the United States for December 28, 2021 to January 4, 2022 totaled 16,458. This is a 60.2 percent increase from the prior seven-day average.

"The sudden and steep rise in cases due to overcrowding, is resulting in unprecedented daily case counts, sickness, absenteeism, and strains on our healthcare system," said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC Director.

Dr. Thomson says right now one in 10 people in Colorado has Covid, and stats show nearly 100 percent of cases in our state are Omicron.

He says while masking, vaccines, and social distancing are not perfect tools, they all continue to give you the best chance to avoid the virus or have only mild illness.

  1. If everyone will inevitably be exposed, what then? Will it “normalize” COVID? The more people who experience COVID, and the more who fare relatively well because of vaccination, the more people will become resigned to simply living with the virus and increasingly weary of — and increasingly vocal about expressing their displeasure with — social restrictions, some observers say. One eminent group of scientists is already calling for the focus to shift to “the ‘new normal’ of life with COVID,” a life that doesn’t include eradication or a “zero COVID” strategy, but one that sees COVID monitored along with the flu and other respiratory viruses, and a “peak week threshold” for hospitalizations and deaths established that, if crossed, would trigger the emergency use of measures to slow the spread.”

    Omicron is unlikely to be the last variant of concern and current vaccines may need updating, a World Health Organization technical advisory group said Tuesday . Although today’s vaccines aren’t stopping all transmission — they don’t provide sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 — and are less protective against infection with Omicron, they are helping protect people from having “really bad consequences if they do get infected,” Goel said.” This is their agenda in a nutshell! I’ve said from the beginning; two things: They would continue this psyops for as long as they can get away with it; and – the coronavirus is nothing more than the common cold; and there has never been a “cure” for the common cold! Both “Fact Checked” by me! Also; attempting to “eradicate” viruses, is as idiotic and insane as it gets! If you are living in fear of a cold virus…you need to STOP; right now!

    1. These ‘shots’ aren’t “vaccines” in the same vein as for Polio or Small Pox ARE. Were these ‘shots’ so, they’d Stop the virus. Only ‘changing the meanings as the Left is wont to do, is sowing confusion!

      1. Yes they are vaccines, just like Polio and Smallpox vaccines, which also didn’t prevent everyone from becoming infected. There are young people around who were vaccinated and still suffer from the effects of polio. The good news is that we all reached “herd immunity” quickly because people didn’t argue about getting vaccinated in those cases. It was mandated, and no one complained. That’s the big difference today.

      2. The CDC has changed its definition of a “vaccine”,
        so now the failing “covid shot” can still be cla ssified as “a vaccine”.
        Even then only Pfizer is FDA approved, Moderna and J&J are still EUA, as is THE PCR TEST-is still EUA and you are going to see it disappear
        just keep moving those goalposts -the USG felt a huge jump of compliance that was obtained by fear and will continue to change definitions in order to keep any grasp on social Control

  2. And…When are we going to stop perpetuating the myth of variants? These “variants” are nothing more than computer generated gene sequences. They have no basis in reality. The previlance of a scariant is based on models. There is no test for Delta or Omicron. The PCR is not a diagnostic tool. The original virus was never isolated by the Chinese,just paid for by Fraudci, so all we have is a media promoted scam. As long as COVID ilk keep pushing science that fosters the narrative of a viral infectious disease we will never come out of this nonsense. No one has ever proven that SarsCov2 is the cause for Covid19. No one has adequately defined Covid19. It can be just about any symptom related to any upper respiratory infection or a hangover! Let’s stop the germ theory nonsense already! It only serves Big Pharma and the Globalists.

    1. Then they go and find out stuff like…… CBD actually prevents infection and can block the spike proteins on the virus rendering it inert. Hmmm. Hemp is the savior of covid…… who would of thought. Think I am crazy look it up. Oregon State University. Its on KKTV’s web also

        1. Many things will kill Covid viruses in the lab, if you treat them with enough of it. Just ask Trump about bleach . . .

          1. Please, point out THAT EXACT STATEMENT! I read it, couldn’t FIND IT. So, if I missed it, cite the time stamp.

      1. I also came across that same information, from another outlet, that wrote of that. I’m going to skip that means and be certain to drink Cow’s Milk, and If feeling ill, add Benadryl; but am already on a virus-killing regimen, and have conditions that Inhibit This Virus, according to the various studies, reporting on them.

  3. So is there a facebook page that you can find someone who tested positive and go to their house for an exposure? Or how is there an alarming uptick in people purposely exposing themselves to covid? Sounds like more fear mongering

  4. I say just allow everyone who wants to expose themselves to do so. By the time the statistics become available, the number of those who keep complaining will be less than before.
    .
    It never ceases to amaze me how some people will go to such lengths to deliberately become infected with a virus of known high risk of fatality, when free vaccines with known lower risks all around are available to almost everyone. Some people have no concept of risk âssessment.

    1. The high risk of fatality? Come on Check…you know the real numbers…Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.” Initial estimate was 2% Initially, the World Health Organization (WHO) had mentioned 2% as a mortality rate estimate in a press conference on Wednesday, January 29 and again on February 10. (last year)…hasn’t changed much…in fact lower
      The COVID Survival Rates With/Without Vaccine – No Differences – Wim’s Blog Young people up to the age of 19, have 0.0027% chance to die from COVID-19. For people between the age of 20-29, they have 0.0140% change to die, etc. The highest risk group on earth are those between 60-69 with a risk of 0.5900% to die. Give it a break!

        1. Been there done that Checksters…although not purposely. Floated the “virus” with ease and all the made up variants. No vaccine…the omicron p@ssed me by like a northbound late train. I do not fear this as you do…and I can proudly say…I am healthier than I have been in 33 years. Oh…and I didn’t have to use the prescriptions of ivermectin…hydrochloriquine…or bleach…silly me. Supplements…good diet…exercise…good doses of Vitamin D…unlike you who hid behind your mask and a vaccine…probably a few boosters too. Plus living in your head has given me peace…safety…solitude and a safe haven from this “nasty” virus!

    2. This covid-sars2 virus is More Than 97% SURVIVABLE,and ISN’T “high risk of fatality”. Thee ‘shots’ Aren’t virus-killers, like the Vaccines for Polio and Small Pox.

  5. RichieDik! He loves him some CoVID news…Don’t he! Doctor Richie strikes again! Gravity is up with this one.

    1. And there he is again…the wordsmith…name caller…must be some sort of dysfunction cwa…get some help! How old are you 12?

  6. Study found that chemicals in this combination, Benadryl with Cow’s Milk ” inhibit the virus that causes COVID-19, according to University of Florida health researchers.The effective ingredients are diphenhydramine, the antihistamine marketed under the label Benadryl, and lactoferrin, the protein found in milk.”

  7. I love Darwin. The conversations on the virus especially in Red States and Counties prove Darwin does exist. It is sad watching all the uneducated idiots killing themselves. But hey, soon we won’t have to put up with.

    1. Or The Stronger Immune Systems of those not taking those pseudo-vaccine-Shots, will actually fight off the next, Real illness, and be caring for those who did.!

    2. “…especially in Red States and Counties prove Darwin does exist.”
      You are absolutely correct. They prove the the fittest survive. I guess you are referring to the survival of the fittest. Colorado Springs and El Paso county are conservative places and has been voted the most active and fittest area in the nation sometimes. So we are fit and we live. Poor blue areas, like new york, they have been hit the worst.

    3. Do you and cwa get together to think up your nonsense? Like I said to cwa…grow up WhoDat! Your comments have no substance whatsoever!

  8. It has been fairly quiet here in Colorado and in America for a while. One must ask whether this is the quiet before the storm. Part of the reason is because people are tired of being “talked at” and “talked down to”. Patriots are no longer listening. As the saying goes, they are busy reloading and battening down the hatches. Coercion will ultimately backfire big time, but there will be a lot of suffering first. Let me remind you… “They tried to bury us, but they forgot we are seeds.” –Alexandra Boutopoulou

    Every day they try to push us further. Even those who once lined up to be jabbed now have buyer’s remorse. This is not going to end well for the elites. They will be brought to justice. It is not going to even take a majority of the population to rebel. A few people really can change the world. It only took 3% to form America. They forget, we are numerous and they are surrounded. It would be wonderful if 100% of the people stood up and refused to comply. I am a realist. I know this will never happen. I do know we have some very brave people in strategic positions who could, within their professions and networks, bring this mania to a screeching halt. It would not take all of them, just enough of them.

    I am encountering a mult itude of people driven by fear. Now, the numbers are shifting to those who are angry. When the status quo is no longer a safe and comfortable place to be, people are willing to risk change. There is a lesson here. There is no escape, no place to run to and no place to hide. When your back is against the wall, you only have one option left if you want to survive. You must fight like your life depends upon it, because it does. Our Creator in His wisdom, made us all wonderfully unique–which is another reason why we must retain our DNA and our humanity. We have each been given special talents and skills–all useful and none too humble. We are given these gifts to use–there is no other reason for us to have them. Be useful, be kind and be wise.

  9. Oh…and some more truth about your science cwa…
    Here is Kaufman and Cowan’s statement on their arguments and conclusions regarding the existence and pathogenicity of viruses, in as succinct form as possible. andrewkaufmanmd.com/wp-co It is in two parts, first explaining the steps one would logically take to go about finding an alleged virus, as was done for bacteriophages, then the second part is summarized with this: “None of these steps has even been attempted with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, nor have all these steps been successfully performed for any so-called pathogenic virus. Our research indicates that a single study showing these steps does not exist in the medical literature. Instead, since 1954, virologists have taken unpurified samples from a relatively few people, often less than ten, with a similar disease.

    They then minimally process this sample and inoculate this unpurified sample onto tissue culture containing usually four to six other types of material — all of which contain identical genetic material as to what is called a “virus.” The tissue culture is starved and poisoned and naturally disintegrates into many types of particles, some of which contain genetic material. Against all common sense, logic, use of the English language and scientific integrity, this process is called “virus isolation.” This brew containing fragments of genetic material from many sources is then subjected to genetic @nalysis, which then creates in a computer-simulation process the alleged sequence of the alleged virus, a so called in silico genome. At no time is an actual virus confirmed by electron microscopy. At no time is a genome extracted and sequenced from an actual virus.

    This is scientific fraud.”
