18. Stu 2020.
1 459 564 Pregleda

The Good Doctor is one of the more intense medical dramas on TV, and this came out of the gate swinging on their new season with an episode centered around COVID-19. Dr. Shaun Murphy struggles with social distancing, masks, and the rapidly evolving early days of the coronavirus in Season 4 Episode 1 “Frontline Part 1”. I weigh in on subjects like how COVID affects asthma, PPE, and baking sourdough bread.
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • Not the good doctor proving vaccines do nothing. “Even if you get the flu shot doesn’t mean you can’t get the flu”. EVERY. VACCINE. IS. LIKE. THIS. Read the back of h the papers on every vaccine and do your own research! And remember that statement when you think about getting the covid vaccine when it’s released!

  • Hey Doc. Covid has survival rate of 99.7 and mainly effects babies, the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions, azma, HIV, ect. Do you think more emphasis should be on isolating this specific group of people instead of turning the world upside down? Why is so much effort being put into vaccines and not building up the immune system? After all, flu vaccines have proved to have their limitations... non monetary way. Pharmaceutical companies contribute over 60 % of funding to the medic journal and 75% of advertising to mainstream media.not to mention their influence in medical schools. Is there any need to be concerned over this? Thanks in advance for you reply...or maybe not.

  • Hi Doctor Mike I was curious whether you watch the whole episode I know you can show the whole episode for copyright issues but there was a part that you left out...after the clip you showed near the end...the guy with diverticulitis. Well, Spoiler alert, he didn't actually have diverticulitis and that was an interesting twist 2 and it turned into other people in the hospital being affected because he had COVID19 and people didn't know it... a hospital nurse actually died of covid-19 exposed to him. Which I'm sure you saw a lot of in real life in the beginning at least?!

  • I heard there is a vaccine coming to the U.S as early as December.. does anyone know if that’s confirmed or not? And if so , who gets it first ? My mom and I have asthma. My mom is a smoker. I am so afraid of covid. I lay awake thinking about it and I wake up thinking that this couldn’t happen to us .. but it is. It seems like something from a horror movie that you think about but doesn’t happen . I really just want the vaccine to come so people can stop dying from this disease . Thanksgiving was painful this year and soon is Christmas and other holidays. I am transgender as well I take hormone therapy and I’m wondering what would happen if I were to catch this disease. My hormones weaken my immune system .

Doctors do not order supplies, people like me, a Medical Service Aid, are the people who are responsible and it has been very hard. No gloves, no gowns, no swabs, etc. A lot of people are working and being exposed, especially housekeeping.

  • I had Covid-19 in March. At the time I was in such bad shape, but my doctor couldn't admit me to the hospital because they were full, and were only taking First Responders and Covid patients that were unable to walk or unconscious. My gosh the illness was terrible; it started with fatigue so bad I couldn't move, my joints hurt like someone was hitting them with a hammer, brutal migraine (and I never get headaches), and a brutally sore throat. Then 2 days later I could not breathe - it felt like someone was suffocating me with a pillow over my face. My chest hurt so bad like my lungs were filled with broken glass shards, and when the dry hacking cough started it felt like I was being stabbed in the middle of my chest. I collect minerals/gems/fossils as a hobby, which sometimes takes me to the mountains out west at high elevations. As such I had a few cases of cans of oxygen-enhanced O2 which I managed to dig out and use. I called my doctor then and begged her to admit me, but hospital rules wouldn't let her. She said, "Hannah, all I can do for you is to tell you to stay and home and take care of yourself so your immune system can fight this on its own". At the worst point in the illness I literally wanted to die I was so sick. The cough was dry and so severe then that it would nearly me me vomit. I couldn't breathe, couldn't sleep, etc. And people think this virus is just the flu! SMH... For me, never again. I am making sure I do not catch it again...
