Re: The Sociological Implications Of Corvid-19
COVID-19 and Religion?

First, wash your goddamn hands ... often.

Second, for heaven sake keep your friggin fingers out of your friggin nose.

Third, if you're sick (COVID or not) stay the hell home and don't sneeze on anything!

The new name is MRV.

Hand Sanitizers
Coragyps, Your gin may or may not work.

Hot button ... hand sanitizers.

There are two kinds in the popular vernacular. One works on COVID-19, the other doesn't. And sooo many people get the two confused and refuse to recognize the difference.

One type of hand sanitizer is antibacterial, the other is alcohol-based.

COVID-19 is a virus. Antibacterial hand sanitizers WILL NOT work on viruses. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers WILL work on both bacterias and viruses.

The antibacterials popular on the US market today usually contain Benzalkonium Chloride. It is an antibiotic that breaks down the cell wall (peptidoglycan) of a bacterium but HAS NO effect on the protein shell of a virus.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are usually Ethyl Alcohol and dissolve both the peptidoglycan of bacterium and the protein shell of a virus IF the alcohol concentration is 70% or better.

If your fight against COVID-19 involves an antibacterial you are wasting your money.

*** Having said that ... just the act of washing your hands (with or without an antibacterial) IS effective against viruses and bacteria as it, if done properly, will get most of the bugs off your hands. Just any old soap and plenty of water will do. When you can't wash you hands an alcohol-based sanitizer is next best. Antibacterials are just a waste and are friggin dangerous.

Wash your hands, people! And keep your fingers out of your nose!

BTW, a 100% alcohol base IS LESS effective than a 70% alcohol solution because the presence of water serves to increase the dissolving power of the alcohol against the proteins and peptides of both bacteria and virus.

So, Coragyps, check you gin for alcohol-by-volume. If it's not 70% or better then it is best to drink the gin before/after/while you wash your hands. Much better outcome for both your hands and your head.

BTW2, antibacterial cleaning products are damn dangerous and should be banned the world over. Bacteria are smarter than we are and have evolved, and will continue to evolve, defenses against ANY type of antibiotic we throw at them. The ubiquitous use of antibacterials in daily cleaning products just serves to hasten the evolution of the super-bugs that we are now seeing around the world.

Let your doctor handle the antibiotics. Keep them out of your soaps and wipes and in their prescription-pill bottles where they belong.

Nitpick is good when it is accurate. Nitpick away, my man.

The Man is Fucking Evil!
Germany tries to stop US from luring away firm seeking coronavirus vaccine

quote:
Berlin is trying to stop Washington from persuading a German company seeking a coronavirus vaccine to move its research to the United States, prompting German politicians to insist no country should have a monopoly on any future vaccine.

Welt am Sonntag quoted an unidentified German government source as saying Trump was trying to secure the scientists’ work exclusively, and would do anything to get a vaccine for the United States, “but only for the United States.”

Re: The Man is Fucking Evil!
The German government is not known to be like the Russian Internet Research Agency spreading intellectual disease and poisonous disinformation across the globe. When the Germans say the Trump administration tried to hijack a biotech firm with a $billion scheme to move the firm to the US with an eye to securing exclusive rights to the firms possible COVID-19 vaccine they cannot be so easily dismissed.

U.S. Offered ‘Large Sum’ to German Company for Access to Coronavirus Vaccine Research, German Officials Say

We all know the Germans have no respect for the Trump administration. They find him to be an incompetent megalomaniacal narcissistic buffoon, just like the rest of the world. But there is no reason, no need and no desire, for them to lie or exaggerate such a claim. Despite what the Trumperiesttas may try to justify or how hard they try to deflect there can be no doubt that Trump attempted to do just that.

To even consider such an scheme, let alone act on it, is proof of this administration’s callous disregard for the rest of the world community and Trump’s insensitive, indeed hostile, perspective of humanity.

The man is fucking evil.
