Kazakhstan Pneumonia

The unknown pneumonia in Kazakhstan caused 1,772 deaths in the first six months of the year, including 628 people in June alone, including Chinese citizens, the embassy said in a statement on its WeChat platform on Thursday, citing Kazakh media reports.

The fatality rate of the disease is much higher than COVID-19, and organizations including Kazakhstan's health department are studying the "virus of this pneumonia," the embassy quoted media.


Prima facie it is just undiagnosed Covid, as Kazakhstan has a ~25% positivity rate

Are there any more reliable reports?

Where's Sacha Baron Cohen to speak up on this defamation?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not to fearmonger, but any chance this is a mutation?

It's been mentioned. There don't seem to be any reliable reports though.

It's Kazakhstan. You'll know before they do.

Posted on Reddit, so take it for what it is. The poster is in FL.

If you were one of the ones who had "mystery pneumonia" March-May: get your lungs checked - I now have lung damage.

I was posting a bit on here trying to find answers about my mystery pneumonia case since early May. I did get some responses about people dealing with the same thing and also prescribed zpacks.

My doctor really says pneumonia should have been gone by now since I've been on a zpack for maybe about 5 weeks or so now. I recently got a chest xray which showed that I had "bad pneumonia" of some sort and have scarring and thickening in my lungs. I had severe flu symptoms all May and June and now in July I'm dealing with moderate to bad breathing problems, chest and lung pain, still a severe headache that pops up randomly sometimes, fatigue, bad shortness of breath.

It's not pneumonia.

I don't know where to go from here. I had 2 negative mouth swabs and 1 negative nose swab. Going for the antibody blood draw tomorrow.



My doc put me on NAC a few days ago which supposedly helps with breaking up any blood clots so I feel a bit safer now taking it, hopefully. 600mg in the AM and PM. He has me on a BUNCH of supplements/meds that are COVID related but he won't say that its COVID since I didn't get a positive test. I'm calling a doctor in NY tomorrow for telemedicine because honestly I think Florida doctors are pretty bad. I've so far dropped $1k out of pocket to figure out whats wrong with me between doctor visits, chest Xray, meds, blood work :/

This is stupid and why people are being marked as pneumonia deaths.
