Yes.. Mutations have happened and are expected to continue. All one has to do is take a look at www.nextstrain.org they have been documenting the
phylogeny from the start and have an amazing interface that visually puts the number of mutations already seen and documented, imo, in a very easy to
understand way. Coronaviruses specifically are known to mutate quite often in general even before this specific virus was discovered.
This isnt an attack on you OP specifically but... The idiots who seem to think tuis virus doesnt exist, who act like babies because they are too
indignant and selfish to wear a mask, who purposefully go out of their way NOT to follow the very simple and pointblank EASY ways to mitigate the
spread... Are a big part of the reason we still havent gotten this to a manageable level in the U.S.
Even if one is healthy, and statistically has very good odds of the virus running its course with no severe effects.... If thst person refuses to get
tested, refuses to wear some type of covering, refuses to stay to themselves, refuses to follow the extremely easy to umderstand science and instead
doubles down on the childishly immature behavior weve seen from a very speciric demographic.... They are aiding both the increased mutations and
extending the amount of time we will all be dealing with this. Not to mention in my personal opinion, directly in part responsible for the number of
deathd we have already in this country(U.S) theres a reason weve led the world with infections and deaths....and its that demographic of people and
those in charge with the same backwards mentality.
Its a virus. It doesnt care if you believe in it. It doesnt care if you cherry pick numbers to inflate one's own ego and ignore the obvious. It doesnt
care if you are so manipulated and indoctrinated that you would rather out yourself, your family , and community at risk because you think you know
better than the very professionals who have made it their lifes work studying virology and epidemiology... And insist vaccines are 'the devil' or
whatever other new BS propaganda youve been misled into regurgitating as your own thoughts. It. Doesnt. Care.
Its a virus. It will do exactly what it has done the entire time whether one believes in it or not.
There was the same mentality prevalent during the Spanish Flu aswell in a smiliar ignorant minority of the population....they refused masks and whined
it was tyrany and dug their heels into their own ignorance because- imo- deep down they were/are simply either too scared to believe in reality.. Or
too prideful to admit they were wrong. In the end they were but a footnote im history- the same will hold true (I hope) for the idiots with the same
The biggest difference?..... We should know better by now. The amount of infor amd verifiable science available to us now compared to in 1918 would be
incomprehensible to someone alive then. At least then it made a little sense to hold those views, they literally didnt know better.
Now....we do. We know better. We have better. Wr should be able to effortlessly do better.... And yet, here we are.
If someone doesnt want the vaccine , then dont get one but for the love of god shut up because no one cares to hear how proud you are in your
idiocracy. The reailty will NEVER change solely because someone refuses to acknowledge it. Thats not how it works. Reailty is reailty....whether an
adult throws a toddler-like temper tantrum and makes up some ridiculous and asinine argument about ' muh freedoms" or not.
One of the most disheartening amd saddening things ive witnessef over the last few years is how so many people who have genuinely good intentions,
and.open minds ( i mean... Its ats afterall lol one needs an open mind to even end up here) have willingly let themselves be so manipulated that they
now scream that the sky is green....even though deep down inside they know damn well its blue. Whether its covid or... Other topics in other
forums... Its that same pitiful group of people screeching ignorance scross the board.
I just will never understand how so many people willingly have turned their back on science, logic, and reality to the point where they genuinely are
ready to risk not only their lives but the lives around them.
As an immunocompromised person myself who has been following this virus since the 2nd week of December 2019, if someone suggested thst this far in we
would STILL have so many people abandoning their basic humanity .... I wouldnt have believed it. And im a pretty cynical person by default lol i
just.... Have never had so little faith in humanity left as I do now after the last few years but especially since this outbreak.
Again, the "you" isnt you personally OP just in general... I appreciate the info in your post and S+F. granted, it doesnt surprise me but confirms
other data released about this specific virus aswell as what is known in general.
I literally feel like im in the twilightzone at this point though with how people respond to ANY thread remotelt on this subject. Especially in
relation to the 'conspiracy' crowd- if anything we are the ones i wouldve expected to actually be 'on top' of this situation and the plethora of info
that is, and has been since very early on, available on SARScov2.
I almost need a new word that describes the mixture of anger, apathy, and pity i have at this point for those who still refuse to acknowledge the
reality of the situation. I just.... Dont even know anymore.
