... we now have a new variant of the bug that is between 40 to 100 times more transmissible ...

While it is good to emulate the Japanese art of improving on other nation’s technologies, terminal Chinese pathogens is not the technology you should be improving.

Sorrow for your employee and family.

I think I just heard on the news that you Yanks are going to stick with the original plan?

Plan? What plan? This is still the Trump administration and the Biden transition team is still being effectively blocked.

Biden team says Trump OMB undermining budget process, COVID plans

Operation Warp Speed is stuck in neutral.

Re: United States Covid Efforts Among Worst in World
Was it really our efforts (policy adoptions) that were so poor or was it trying to implement those efforts in a society that largely didn't care all that much?

Re: Can vaccinated people be spreaders?
The government should have done whatever it took to flood the country with N95 masks a year ago.

Why? Bozo can't wear a simple cotton mask properly, or at all. Meet the needs of the medical community for N95s, but, I'm thinking your proposal is wasteful. Bozo really doesn't need an N95 sitting on his coat rack that he never uses. His simple cotton mask is adequate especially since he's not going to use it properly if at all.

But the point is taken. Gov't should have done much more to provide the needed mask for the Medicos when this whole thing started.

Re: Can vaccinated people be spreaders?
The N95s are most effective in environments where there is a higher viral load, is it not?

Most of society does not dwell in such an environment.

Other than the best, what would be adequate given most circumstances?

For ol' Joe Schmuk who wouldn't know a virus from an cephalopod the physics of the situation with particle size and mask seal is useless. Joe's a good guy. He'll do what we tell him. He's going to the grocery store and maybe a stop at Jack's Burger, Pizza, and Sushi stand for a take out. He is not partial to wearing a hazmat suit.

What do we tell him?

Re: The COVID Genocide Deserves a Name
Oh how I would love for the name Trump Virus, spoken with a hard edge of derision, to become the name used, but, the world has already anointed a name, covid or covid-19. The covid pandemic of 2020

It's already in world-wide use to describe not just the disease but the broad impact on world societies. Humans are rather stubborn when it comes to changing names, and right now this one is so embedded in world culture I don't see this changing anytime soon.

Unfortunately, only buried deep in the details of its history will the story be of the incompetence, the ego, the sheer stupidity, that allowed covid to run rampant over the world. But will not be recognized as genocide in the same league with the Armenian or the Rwandan actions.

The only legacy will be "just friggin' stupid".

Re: let them eat cake
This would not be a problem if we just shot ‘em. Serious. Just give it to them.

Send out well supplied parties, lasso the ornery scum, wrestle them to the ground and give ‘em the jab.

Unfortunately, with the mentality of stupid we are dealing with, so many of them would go home and cut off their own arms to stop the dreaded vaccine from getting to their heart and lodging the Gates Tracking Chip leaving severed arms dumped all across Trump land.

That would make it easier to id the Nazis, for sure (they need only the one arm to salute with anyway) but I don’t think the courts would go for it and the stench of all those discarded arms would not be good. Maybe we shouldn’t do that.

The evolution of antibiotics and the evolution of vaccines are indeed similar. They are both synthesised by humans in the lab. Now the bug that's the center of all that attention is the beneficiary of real natural selection and, with that superior force, always stands the high ground in the fight.

You do know antibiotics and vaccines are man-made, right?

But that's what riVerRat is going on about. We have to take flu vaccines every year because every time you get a flu shot the flu goes into evolution mode and changes inside your cells into a meaner badder virus that goes out into the world to infect people next year.

Since this can happen in about 0.01x10really big negative number of cases we gotta STOP the damage by not vaccinating the 99.99999+-∞% that will benefit by staying alive.

And you can't treat a virus with antibiotics because that makes the virus go into evolution mode too.

So the best thing one can do for a flu is to do the Trump thing and drink horse de-wormer and stick an ultra-violet bulb in your rectum.

His party has been all about protecting the rights of minorities... Now his attacking the rights of minority for nothing...
This is communism.

Poor Pork. A politician disagrees with his reich-wing bullshit and THAT is his definition of communism.

This alone is enough to ignore anything else he says.
