Point of interest: 1 in 3 young adults vulnerable to severe Covid-19 — and smoking plays a big part, research finds
“One in three young adults is at risk of severe Covid-19, and smoking plays a big part in that risk, according to new research published Monday in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, looked at more than 8,000 participants ages 18 to 25 who had participated in the National Health Interview Survey to see what their medical vulnerability to severe Covid-19 was in relation to risk indicators that had been set out by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including health conditions and smoking habits.
The researchers found 32% of the total study population were medically vulnerable for severe Covid-19. However, when the group of participants who smoked cigarettes or e-cigarettes were taken out of the analysis, the medically vulnerable percentage decreased by half, to 16%.
“The difference between estimates is driven largely by the sizeable portion of young adults who reported that they engaged in past 30-day smoking (1 in 10) and past 30-day e-cigarette use (1 in 14),” the report said. “By contrast, relatively fewer young adults reported medical conditions identified by the CDC as conferring severe illness risk.””
Point of Interest
Donald Trump “If you know that Biden and Obama stopped thier testing, they just stopped it, you probably know that, I’m sure you don’t want to report it.”
WTF fuck testing is he talking about?
Surviving Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was discovered for the very first time on Trump’s watch in 2019, hence the Covid-19 tag. SO he cannot mean that, but the left will spin it that way. Therefore he must mean testing during Obama’s term, and Obama did stop testing once the infection was over, for Ebola, For SARs 1, for MER, all caught, tested for, traced, locked down and exterminated. That is when the Obama administration stopped testing.
A virus is not political, you do not react to it by stopping testing because Obama stopped testing when the epidemic was over while you’re in a goddamn viral bloom nationwide!
WTF is wrong with this human?
To me that is like saying, during a raging wildfire, that California stopped fighting their wildfire last fall. (When the fire season ended, and it had burned out) and since they did that I am justified in stopping too, while it is raging.

Magical thinking is far too accepted in America, Trump is a primary example. Gov Cumo has done so well compared to Trump or other Governors who followed the politics and not the science. Even so he published some art inspired by the Pandemic commemorating the efforts of New Yorkers in this time of crisis.
A nice sentiment, but commemorations are for after an event, not the middle of one. Since NY bent the curve they were successful, for now. Many other states, 37 of them, are in bloom now. The blooms can very easily return to NY as they went from NY to TX, the virus knows no boundaries.
Hate to tell you Governor Cumo, but this is the beginning of this outbreak, not the end of it. Bending the curve for NY only works if the globe does the same, otherwise you’re South Korea, having bent the curve and endlessly dealing with new outbreaks via commerce and travelers.
The Art itself is worth a look . . . E Pluribus Unam
