I am no doctor, and this is not medical opinion;
Is your boomer mom scared of an engineered bioweapon of 6-36 times faster mutation rate than the fastest RNA virus out there and a projected Ro of 18? Does your boomer mom understand what it means to have a completely engineered Receptor Binding domain in the Spike protein which interacts with the plasma membrane of macrophages and CD+4 Tcells to completely destroy them so that your immune system cannot fight the "it's just the flu bruh"? Does your boomer mom understand that with such a spike protein which is completely unique in the whole microbial world, your immune system does not have any antibodies to recognize it and if it does, macrophages and tcells are killed instantly, so it replicates incessantly until you die of a cytokine storm drowing in your own lung blood? Does your boomer mom understand that virions can stay functional on surfaces up to 28 days? Does your boomer mom understand that with Xeno DNA or RNA theoretically we can hijack bacteriophage and mycovirus mechanisms to produce viruses that can create spores in your sudoriferous glands, so that you literally sweat corona chan containing spores that will infect even the best protected medic around you in ways they don't even suspect yet?
If she does, then give her the Nobel prize already.
You know those videos of people having seizures? Just dropping dead?
Well, I think it's a febrile seizure, a convulsion that occurs within the human body following a high temperature fever. It usually happens in children around the ages of 6, but can sometimes happen in adults, and possibly is what makes NCOV-19 so presumably lethal. If this virus is going around giving people respiratory issues (bronchitis symptoms, fluid in lungs, pneumonia) and seizures, it's no small wonder people are dying especially the elderly. The febrile seizure theory matches up entirely with the symptoms presented in these videos: the limbs go stiff and they start shaking. Death likely occurs because of a combination of respiratory symptoms and foaming at the mouth from the seizure prevents oxygen from entering the lungs. In short you pass out, have a seizure and suffocate.
My theory is that the virus cannot reach this final stage in its host within certain cold environs (i.e. western nations). It is only within countries with very hot or humid conditions that people have been spotted getting this seizure, and indeed hotter countries are the ones most in peril right now.
