Surprise: People Who Exercise Are At Much Lower Risk From COVID Death

I’m rather shocked that the Washington Post allowed this to be published, after supporting all the lockdowns of gyms, skate parks, people being outside exercising

I love the photo. Outside with no one anywhere close? Check. Heck, no one even in the photo? Check. Wearing a (completely worthless) mask? Check. Woman of color? Check. From the link

Men and women who worked out at least 30 minutes most days were about four times more likely to survive covid-19 than inactive people, according to an eye-opening study of exercise and coronavirus outcomes among almost 200,000 adults in Southern California.

Eye opening? To whom? We knew early on that people who were in better shape and got exercise were much less likely to get a bad case of Wuhan Flu or die. We knew it was mostly getting the infirm, people with pre-existing conditions, were in bad shape.

The study found that exercise, in almost any amount, reduced people’s risks for a severe coronavirus infection. Even people who worked out for as little as 11 minutes a week — yes, a week — experienced lower risks of hospitalization or death from covid than those who moved about less.

“It turns out exercise is even more powerful than we thought” at protecting people from severe covid, said Robert Sallis, a clinical professor at Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine in Los Angeles and senior author of the new study.

The findings add to mounting evidence that any amount of exercise helps lower the ferocity of coronavirus infections, a message with particular relevance now, as holiday travel and gatherings ramp up and covid cases continue to rise.

Science already offers copious support for the idea that regular, moderate exercise increases our immune response and generally helps us avoid respiratory infections or recover more rapidly if we do catch a bug. In a 2011 study, adults who worked out regularly were almost half as likely to develop colds or similar infections as inactive people and also about 40 percent less likely to report their illnesses as lingering.

Like with everything else through 2020, it was all based on “ZOMG, we have to Do Something!!!!!!! Everybody Panic!” rather than established science being applied to a novel coronavirus.

    Surprise !!! Red states may have per Capita death rates up to 300% higher than blue states.

    • CarolAnn says:

      Do you think that’s because of vaccines that don’t stop Wuhan or from not wearing masks which almost no one even in blue states does any more?

      I would suggest since the vaccine doesn’t work and people aren’t wearing masks it may, just may be because of some other reason. Or is it beyond your intelligence to explore that idea?
      You just swallow all the bullshit the government feeds you and swallow like you do for pedos dick?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        You raise a good point. Mortality rates are higher in red states for reasons in addition to just vaccine ignorance/resistance. Obesity, drug use, poor healthcare infrastructure, lower education levels, more rural population, poverty, higher homicide rates, more Republicans… are all characteristic of red states.

        CarolAnn, you just swallow all the bullshit that FOX feeds you like you do PeDon trump’s dick.

        The top ten states for excess deaths/1 million population for 2020-2021 are dominated by red states:

        Mississippi (most excess deaths)
        New York
        South Carolina
        New Jersey
        South Dakota

        None of this proves that the reason red states have higher death rates is because they have lower vaccination rates, since red states have a laundry list of problems.

    Teach criticized the photo for having a black person wearing a surgical/medical mask with no one around!

    He might consider that the photo was staged.

    Any mask is more effective than no mask. The subject appears to be wearing a surgical/medical mask, and while not nearly as effective as a well-fitting N95 mask, is still better than nothing.

    Teach refers to the subject as “she”, but it’s possible “she” was born a male and identifies now as a female!! Did the WaPo screw up and NOT use a black trans person for the photo?

    Is Teach suggesting that only white people should be photographed??

          Are you and your company being audited by the IRS after pissing away over $200M of investors money?
          Where did all that money go?

            Lil ShitLips triggered again! LOL.

            You’re such a whiny little cowardly chickenshit. Pussy. Yellabelly. Chicken. Turncoat. LOL

            You should contact the IRS after you contact the local police here! LOL

    Johnny Carbon-is 1100 300% of 750?
    Or do you suck at math and/or reading?

    Seems the only people still scared of Covid are the ones vaccinated against it….

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      We thank the connies for their sacrifices. The unvaccinated are at least 3-fold more likely to die from Covid – especially old obese connies in those red states famous for poor healthcare resources.

      By all means keep preaching that the vaccines will kill them. The more you schleps preach the fewer trump voters available.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      • Jl says:

        ….or the ones driving alone in their car with their masks on. When they do this, if helps to tell them that they can take their “Biden-Harris” sticker off their bumper because we already know who they voted for…
        Remember, my vaccine only works if you have yours…..

        Dear Elwoood:

        What I said to H.

  5. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    Since when art red states “famous” for poor health care and if they are wouldn’t that mean the rich enlightened compassionate blue states are killing people? Why don’t they help?

    Where do you get this nonsense? You sound like a deranged Jim Jones follower when you start slicing and dicing Americans because you don’t like millions of them. A real asshole.

    If you’re not for Ye in ’24 you’re a fuckin racist!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Lascivious Goomba,

      Blue states try to help red states by sending them money. But red state politicos vote against what’s best for their citizens. Blue states try to persuade red states to get vaccinated, invest in rural hospitals, reduce homicides, reduce poverty, etc.

    Dear H:

    Actually, using numbers without looking at the total picture is very misleading.

    If we looked only deaths as the result of homicide for Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Chicago, Detroit, LA, etc., we might draw the conclusion black youths, as a nationwide group per thousand are very dangerous when the actual cause is the education system, or lack thereof, poor policing, etc., etc.

    In the case of Covid, the death rate is around 33% for the elderly. Therefore, clusters of the elderly, as Governor Cuomo, along with several of his Democratic peers showed, is a deadly situation.

    Red states, have a higher number of the elderly because you don’t retire to such places as Michigan. Having more elderly should naturally result in a higher death rate.

    Interestingly enough, the death rate between New York with its rigid lockdown and Florida with its refusal to shut down is almost identical. And Washington, with its cloudy rainy climate which drives people in where people are supposed to catch Covid has 1969 deaths per million death rate. And then Mormon Utah, with its ban on alcohol, caffeine, nicotine leads the pack with around 1600.

    Confusing, eh? Think maybe we should leave politics out of it?
