Attorney Who Believed COVID Was Nothing To Be Afraid Of Dies From Disease
October 4, 2022
Nearly 50 years after the first reported cases, the COVID virus, which was thought to be nothing more than folklore, has claimed another victim. On Tuesday, 60-year-old attorney George Washington passed away from multiple organ failure caused by the disease. Although Washington’s life was lost before he could pass on his wisdom to future generations of attorneys, it’s safe to say that he will be remembered as one of the most highly regarded lawyers in history and a legend among his colleagues and clients.
The following is a recent news report on the topic: A man who worked as an attorney for Campbellsville Law Associates, P.L., said he was not afraid of contracting the chickenpox-like disease called shingles or chickenpox (COVID). William Borst worked as an associate and a solo practitioner for about 15 years.
Borst told Channel 3 News in an interview Friday morning that chickenpox is nothing to be afraid of and joked about how much safer we are now than when he was growing up because there were no vaccinations. When asked if anyone in his law firm had contracted COVID, Borst said that no one has been infected yet but people can be exposed to the virus any time they go out in public.
Facts about the disease
Covid. There is no direct treatment or cure for Covid, which attacks the central nervous system and often includes symptoms such as headaches, nausea, disorientation, muscle spasms and ataxia.
COVID is a type of disease that doesn’t discriminate based on age or income. One in four people exposed to the virus will get sick. Symptoms can come on quickly and get worse quickly, sometimes resulting in death.
It takes only one human bite from an infected person to transmit the disease from human to human.
How someone contracted it
At a press conference, health officials in Washington state confirmed that one of their attorneys died from the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (COJV).
The attorney believed COJV was nothing to be afraid of and still maintained her work at the law firm. She argued she could not have contracted it from any of her work, so it must have come from tainted meat. Nevertheless, officials say they are certain she had been living with COJV for six months before her death.
The outbreak in San Francisco
An outbreak of a new type of influenza has hit San Francisco, California. This strain is different than the H1N1 virus and the flu season, experts say, is peaking right now. The symptoms to watch for are respiratory illness that gets worse quickly and fever or chills.
Experts say pregnant women should be especially vigilant because this new flu could impact newborns too. This winter has seen much more serious illnesses in comparison to previous years and it’s unclear what that means for those of us who get sick often–most likely we’re living in an increasingly immune-suppressed society.
What is being done to find a cure
The Center for Health and Infectious Diseases (CHID) have been investigating various treatments that have shown some promise in studies in lab mice. Researchers at CHID will be studying the effects of a new drug, ribavirin, on their small group of study subjects to see if it is effective in treating people with the virus. In addition to this treatment, current human trials are testing various combinations of three
FDA-approved drugs that have so far proven safe and effective when used together: acyclovir (Zovirax), valacyclovir (Valtrex) and famciclovir (Famvir). But these treatments are only helping about 20% of those infected.
Possible long-term effects of this disease
COVID is a virus that doesn’t show any symptoms until it’s too late and has completely destroyed the body. So while nothing seems to be wrong in the beginning, it spreads slowly and gradually through a person’s system as they go about their day. While some people are carriers of the virus but don’t show any symptoms, anyone exposed is liable for infection.
It can affect anyone at any time because there isn’t one way to contract it other than by coming into contact with an infected person or through infected particles from coughing and sneezing. A family member can pass it on without realizing they have COVID just by touching them or giving them a hug, so there’s no avoiding this disease if someone around you is carrying it.
What we know so far about the new virus (new symptoms, how it spreads, etc.)
COVID (short for Coughing and Vomiting-Inducing Virus) is a new virus that has begun to spread around the country. This virus causes strong bouts of vomiting and coughing, which has led to the death of many who catch it
