How Much Would You Pay To Cure An Illness?
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
Imagine that you could browse the pharmacy aisles . . . for CURES. How much would you pay to be done with a nagging health problem . . . forever?
A new survey asked people what they’d give up to never have to worry about various ailments, including COVID-19.
On average, Americans would pay more than $13,500 to be cured of Covid forever. But there are two conditions that we’d pay MORE to be rid of.
1. Insomnia. On average, we’d pay $27,400 to never deal with insomnia again.
2. Allergies . . . $13,900
3. Covid . . . $13,500
4. Stomach aches and cramps . . . $12,100
5. Acne and pimples . . . $11,200
6. Throwing up . . . $10,300
7. Migraines and other intense headaches . . . $9,300
8. Hangovers . . . $3,200
The responses varied from state to state. For example, people in Mississippi would shell out $69,000 to be permanently immune to Covid. More than five times the national average. People in Massachusetts would pay $65,000.
But people in Connecticut . . . literally next door to Massachusetts . . . would only pay $591 for a Covid cure. It’s also worth less than $1,000 for people in North Carolina, Idaho, Rhode Island, and Arizona.
In a separate question, people were asked what they’d give up for permanent immunity to Covid.
78% said they’d give up “brunch” . . . 60% would give up coffee . . . 35% would give up the internet . . . 29% could go without desserts . . . 17% said they’d give up sex . . . 5% would give up their partner altogether . . .
And 4.2% would give up “working out.”
