Not only the old and fat are at risk (athlete got covid)

Recommended Posts

A 40-year-old man taking part in athletic competitions shared a “before and after” photo showing the shocking effect of the coronavirus on his body.

Ahmad Ayyad, who lives in Washington, D.C., felt the first flu-like symptoms on March 11. Only a few days later, after confirmation of the presence of coronavirus in his body, he was placed in John Hopkins Hospital.

He then became the first Covid-19 patient at the facility to be connected to a respiratory machine. Over the next 25 days, Ahmad was sedated and in a rather delirious state, losing more than 50 pounds.

According to the hospital, the athlete weighed 220lbs when he was first admitted, and almost a month later he woke up from an artificial coma and discovered that he weighed only 152 lbs.

I am not sure if he is a natural athlethe he is quite muscular. His belly seems to be still hold some fat. I would not say that there is anything that can cause that. The Idea that HGH can do that has been debunked already. I would wager that you can get this kind of body naturally. 

 

Having said that it does not mean he did not take anything., but it certainly had no influence on his belly.

Of course, but just saying that being in shape and healthy does not mean if you get infected it wont have some bad effects.

Tony Boselli is a prime example.  He recovered but it give you an idea what can happen.

 

From CBS:

 

Tony Boselli, one of the greatest offensive lineman of his era, recently spent five days in the hospital after he and his wife, Angie, tested positive for the coronavirus. While his wife never needed to be hospitalized and has made a full recovery, Boselli says that he is still in recovery after spending time in the ICU unit. 

Boselli, a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro during his seven seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, first felt ill when had a runny nose in mid-March, thinking he had a cold or sinus infection. But it turned bad in a hurry when he started to get flu-like symptoms and then found out he had been around somebody who tested positive for Covid-19. A day after that, Boselli got tested and he found out he had the Covid-19.

"When I first got sick, I thought it wasn't a big deal," Boselli told CBS Sports. "I was 47 and healthy. I thought I'd be back to myself. It went the wrong way quickly."

On his first night in ICU, getting oxygen pumped into him in an attempt to try to get levels up, the doctor told him if that didn't work, they would have to try something else. Like a machine – but Boselli wasn't sure if it was a ventilator they had in mind. He just knew it didn't sound good.

"In the back of my mind, since I was already in ICU and hooked up to oxygen, I wondered what if it goes wrong, (with the new treatment)" Boselli said. "Bad thoughts come into your head. I tried not to have them cross my mind, but they do. You lay there alone with your thoughts and nobody can see you. The scariest thing was not knowing what was next. I was anxious. I didn't want it to be the way it goes for me. I didn't want to die there. 

 

Boselli is back home now and is recovering, and plans to ride his bike soon on the advice of his doctors to get his lungs back in shape.

"I'm getting there," he said. "This was so much worse than I could have imagined."

His advice to those who aren't taking it seriously?

"It's real, and it's bad for some people," Boselli said. "Look at me. I didn't think it was a big deal at first, and look how it turned out for me. This is a bad virus and people have to take it seriously."

I read an article that 2 studies had show that approximately 70% of males that have died from covid 19 were bald or had male pattern baldness which is mostly related to high levels of androgens. Potentially indicating that it may make you more susceptible to severe covid 19 illness.

So to get a sixpack you got to be taking something?

Lower part of his six pack and hips look a bit strange. Some people say that HGH use gives an bigger belly (has been debunked). I thought the poster was referring to that.

You do know you can have a different interpretation on that one. 

 

Most bald people are older so it could be an age thing.

 

If it specifically talks about male pattern baldness sure it could be this way but there are other reasons for it not just androgen.

There are also reports of a blood relation.

Type A blood may be more susceptible to the virus.

 

So, if you are bald, old, with type A blood stay safe.

Yes, his obliques do look a bit strange, I have seen before with people doing heavy side raises. Looks like he is on something to be honest.
