Not 'untold', about 30,000 a year in the USA.True but besides the vaccine the #1 thing someone can do to help reduce the effects of covid is to get in shape - aka exercise. Not one of the experts call for that. Not even the message board experts in this thread. Just my opinion but its so obvious.
The flu kills untold numbers every year. I know persons who have died from it. Yet I don't question if they got the flu shot or not. I get it every year. I also got the shingrex (shingles) vax's but I know people who have not. I don't get uptight about it but rather consult with my doctor and make my own decisions.
We have discussed how fitness plays an important role in health including our immune systems many times in this thread (maybe before you joined?). Nomad and I don't agree on much, but that is one thing in the 287 pages of this thread that we have agreed on several times.
