Capital and Covid 19 !
From the point of view of any worker with at least class consciousness , the crimes of capital and capitalist states throughout this hell aren´t covered in connection with the Covid-19 outbreak . The coronavirus is transmitted from person to person and accordingly , the community of people in an environment with any number of people is the most important factor in transmitting the virus and the epidemic spread of the disease . With reference to this basic characteristic of the virus on the one hand and the lack of any kind of cure for the disease on the other hand that is a clear explanation that the closure of labor and production centers should be at the forefront of all the solutions and ways of the Covid-19 challenge .Not only all governments around the world haven´t paid the slightest attention to this issue but have done exactly the opposite . An autopsy has shown the deaths from Covid-19 that the virus causes irreversible damage to the lungs and immune system . Even if the patient is treated , the damages to the lung tissues will remain with them forever and one of the possible complications is shortness of breath . The effect of Covid-19 on the human body is similar to a combination of acute viral respiratory infections because it damages both the lungs and the immune system . the changes to pulmonary fibrosis and wound tissue formation in the lungs that interfere with free breathing . Covid-19 infects insulin-producing cells in the pancreas and disrupts the organ´s function . the presence of symptoms of diabetes or worsening of glucose metabolism in diabetic patients is one of its consequences . According to research conducted in China , two-thirds of patients with severe coronary artery disease develop long-term complications such as muscle pain , fatigue and mental disorders within six months of coronavirus infection . One effect of this disease on the heart is cardiomyopathy , in which the heart muscle becomes stiff , thick or stretched . This condition affects the heart´s ability to pump blood , which can lead to low-intensity issues such as fatigue and high-intensity issues such as organ failure . Corona also has a strange effect on the blood , abnormal coagulationn and damage to the body´s capillary network and premature aging of the capillaries that carry oxygen and nutrients to the tissues . The patient´s kidneys can also be attacked that in this case , the risk of kidney infarction and as a result , the risk of irreversible damage to other organs will increase . Inflammation in the brain from the long-term effects of Covid-19 can cause a variety of psychological and neurological problems . In patients who experience long-term symptoms of Covid – 19 , things like depression , anxiety and sleep disorders can also occur . Even in people who have experienced the disease mildly , after recovery , brain dysfunction , stroke or severe meningitis develop . Covid – 19 virus can cause serious damage to the human brain and nervous system , these include causing the immune system to attack the nerves of the stroke , paralysis and memory loss which is usually diagnosed too late . A type of brain injury has been observed that can lead to long-term memory and concentration problems . this virus can affect the brain directly through the nasal cavities . Guillain-Barre syndrome is a disorder that causes the immune system to attack the nerves , resulting in paralysis and in five precent of cases is fatal . Such serious injuries can occur even to patients who have very mild symptoms of the disease , quite unusual but real . Biologically , anesthesia , weakness and memory loss after infection have similarities to multiple sclerosis (MS) . immune system attacks on other organs common in children and known as (MIS – C) “ multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with covid – 19 ” are complications of this disease . Covid – 19 causes blood clots , severe infections , high fever and severe stomach pain , dizziness , heart failure and even death . We all know the dimensions of Corona pandemic deaths around the world but the long-term effects (what is called the long Covid) of the survivors , especially the masses of millions but billions of workers , few have heard from the institutes of capital . Because the life of the worker is far less valuable for capitalism than to find a place in any calculation . For many , Covid – 19 disease is a mild illness but some people struggle for moths with symptoms such as extreme tiredness , constant pain and shortness of breath . the “Long Corona” has a debilitating effect on the lives of those who , after recovery , complain of extreme fatigue even with a short walk . The most common feature of the “long corona” is debilitating fatigue , other symptoms include shortness of breath , a cough than doesn´t go away , joint´s pain and muscles pain , hearing and vision problems , headache and loss of sense of smell and taste and as well as damage to the heart , lungs and kidneys and intestines . Mental health problems such as depression , anxiety and mental retardation have also been reported . it´s not just about the “long corona” that patients have to be admitted to the intensive care unit and rest at home for a while after discharge , even people with relatively mild infections may have long and severe problems . Commodity production and its most advanced form , capitalist production is the full-length mirror replaces the human relationship with relation between objects and commodities , that guarantees everything to be a commodity or capital and human becomes nothing . Not just worker´s health , not just human being health that the foundation of human existence in this system is merely a ridiculous function , without any will , objective and despicable and it´s completely subdued and passive of the needs of the value – added and profit – making cycle of capital .
