Während der Pandemie haben wir uns an die Vorstellung gewöhnt, dass die meisten #COVID-Fälle „#milde #Verläufe sind.
Zb die #CDC sagt, dass 80 % der symptomatischen #SARSCov2 Infektionen einen "milden Verlauf" haben.
Manche denken: dann #kein Grund zur Sorge. Zurecht?

Im #allgemeinen #Sprachgebrauch beschreibt das Wort #mild idR etwas von #untergeordneter #Bedeutung.
Zum Beispiel wird #Erkältung oft als "#milde #Viruserkrankung" bezeichnet.
#Mild bedeutet also "durchaus evtl  unangenehm aber nicht weiter
von Bedeutung, keine große Sache"

Betrachten wir das Attribut "#mild" im Zusammenhang mit #Covid zeigt sich : #Allgemeiner #Sprachgebrauch und die #medizinische #Definition unterscheiden sich hier #signifikant, werden aber @vermischt, was zu #Verwirrung in der Kommunikation über den wahren Sachverhalt führt.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.

Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
