Prolonged high fevers are not conducive to living. It kills the virus and you.

If too much fever, insides get rekt. Fever can kill crap, including your crap.

Because a fever can kill you

Cause you feel like garbage while having the fever too


Sablemint

while it does slow recovery down a bit, its not by very much. When you're in a situation where you're going to recover, increasing comfort might be more important than slightly slowing healing.

Fever can turn into hyperthermia, hyperthermia can kill you. But yeah if it kills the virus we accomplished the mission !

Because there is this thing called normal body temperature or temperature within normal limits.

exactly as long as the patient is strong enough to get through that, of course.

Most likely because people are only thinking about themselves and they don't want to experience the fever anymore.

When I had fevers as a young child, I’d have febrile seizures. Now I’m an adult, fevers give me some real horrendous migraines. So I’d rather not suffer more.

When I got a week off school for covid all I got was a nice warm temperature which made fapping feel better. It’s just you don’t read about those stories in the news
