Default A COVID Story.

My brother that was two years older than me passed away in January from COVID. Diagnosis and dead within two weeks. Family was shocked due to the fact that he was healthy with no underlying conditions. Found out today that he had been taking antibiotics for a condition he had for several years. His gut was basically very weak from the antibiotics, and his immune system was compromised. Nobody knew this, as he was quiet about it. As good as antibiotics are, they can be abused, and your immune system will be weakened. Just an FYI.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Long term antibiotics and steroids can leave you with a lot of issues.

No underlying conditions, but taking long term antibiotics for a condition he had for several years?

Seems to be contradicting statements

I think the people with health issues make up most of the country. More than 73% of Americans over 20 are overweight.... One on 13 Americans have asthma.. There are far more people with health at least one health issue than without.
