Why Dengue is MORE lethal the second time and how it correlates to CoVid19

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related.

Who?

He had almost no views until this Corona shite, and seems to have ran with it, putting out 5 shite vids per week.

I'd not take anything of his seriously. He's just in it for views. Not a medical expert. Just a guy with a fluffed CV.

While Martenson calls himself a scientist in the video’s titles, his claim to the label is, according to him, based on a 1994 PhD from Duke’s Department of Pathology where he specialized in toxicology. While he published scientific research in the ’90s, for at least the last decade Martenson has focused on predicting stagflation and other large shifts in financial markets.

“He’s not a practicing physician, he’s just a guy with a science background who’s taken an interest in this virus,”

Do you take seriously this peer reviewed article?

Or, are you a medical scientist who can refute their research?

What does this have to do with the alarmist YouTube guy who has increased his reach by irresponsible reporting?

I am aware of dengue being very serious 2nd time around. Have been for years.

At the contrary, only a dumbass would watch such a YouTube video and take it seriously.

Let me know if we're supposed to be afraid so I can start biting my nails and whatnot.

Here's a real doctor, telling you NOT to do exactly what this guy does regarding tracking the virus' spread - go straight to the numbers. He's also just a hell of a lot more level-headed and informed, too...
