Covid-19 Was The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me

It’s been nearly a year now since I contracted Covid-19. It took me apart right good — nearly killed me. It took about 8 months to completely recover. It’s hard to believe, but now I have the body of a younger self, and a mind that is inexplicably powerful, with photographic memory.

The few competent coronavirus experts I know aren’t surprised by these claims of mine. Nothing about Covid surprises them. But non-scientists, like many of my readers on Medium, get really angry when I seem to be promoting Covid-19 (which I’m not).

The Covid came back two months ago. I got really sick — for two days. Then it was gone. Weird — it was really strange how it went away on one afternoon.

Why is the lay public so deeply invested in the horror of Covid-19? How can they be choosing to live in mortal terror . . . afraid of dying, of all things? That was always guaranteed.

Scientific justification for my arguments:

Listen to this — and remember, it’s coming from Scientific American:

“Biologists estimate that 380 trillion viruses are living on and inside your body right now — 10 times the number of bacteria . . . Scientists’ rapidly expanding knowledge makes it clear that we are not made up primarily of “human” cells that are occasionally invaded by microbes; our body is really a superorganism of cohabitating cells, bacteria, fungi and most numerous of all: viruses. The latest counts indicate that as much as half of all the biological matter in your body is not human.” *-(👽)-*
