This was picked up on Arab News. I don't know what USA MSM is running today. Title shortened to fit

True, False or Indifferent here it comes. We may say its FAKE, has no effects on the death toll and on and on but we do not run the show. They do and its not going to stop anytime soon.

This is how the first wave came over. It actually went from China to Iran then spread among those other West Asia countries, then here.

So son of a beach just in time to ruin our summer.

This really sucks.

Coronavirus likely to keep mutating: Scientists


LONDON: Humanity is engaged in an “arms race” with the coronavirus Sars-CoV-2, and its capacity to adapt and evolve remains unknown and should not be underestimated, scientists have warned. “I think it’d be a brave person to say that the virus is nearing the end of its evolutionary route and can’t go any further,” Prof. Deenan Pillay, a virologist at University College London, told The Independent. “We’re still early on in the lifetime of this virus as a human pathogen. It normally takes many years for viruses, once they cross the species barrier, to really optimize themselves to be able to replicate well within humans.”


India in crisis as hospitals run out of beds and oxygen for COVID-19 patients


Third coronavirus wave hits Egypt


CAIRO: Egypt is witnessing a third coronavirus wave, a top official has said. Ashraf Hatem, head of the health affairs committee in the Egyptian Parliament and a member of the supreme committee for respiratory viruses of the Ministry of Higher Education, indicated that the number of coronavirus cases at university hospitals is once again increasing daily. He said that citizens must adhere to precautionary measures, respect the rules of social distancing and wear their protective face masks, as well as avoiding family visits.

I’m so sick of the doom porn on this virus.

Yes, we have a new form of the flu.

You can die from anything - today, in fact.

Live and enjoy your life. That’s all we can do, until it’s time to pay the piper.

Yes, but they pull the strings. So I guess I will get back on my wheel in the Hamster cage again. Jeesh

Then again there may be hope. This originated in the UK and was picked up by Arab News. It is a big deal in India and Egypt is sounding the alarm. I wonder if the US MSM now heels. It depends.

So who do you believe? The msm or the Qanon cult.

No mask, no social distancing....does that put other people at risk, especially the aged and compromised individuals?

Is there social responsibility or just F+**em....Let God sort em out?

Why did you call me Jesus?

Would you allow an infected person to help you clean those toilets? Or kiss your kids or wife or mother?

Weren't you the one who was "come to Trump; he's the savior" not so long ago?

Shouldn't we be calling you some kind of prophet, false maybe, but prophet nonetheless.


Btw, your sarcasm was always duly noted.

So let's see ...

There are already seasonal coronaviruses running wild. We call them the cold along with other minor ailments like rhinoviruses. And do you know why we always seem to be getting them year after year?

... shhhhh, it's a secret ...














BECAUSE THEY FREAKIN' MUTATE! It's what they do and how they survive. Now here comes their cousin COVID, another coronavirus. I'm not sure why anyone expects it to behave any differently. It will mutate, and we'll get it year after year. That's just how these things work, but for some reason, we have to live in eternal fear of this one strain ...

Call me anything you please. Don't you think that after being an ATS member for almost 10 years, my second incarnation, and being a "people like you" that my skin as thick as hell. Thanks to a Mod that made the suggestion to grow a thicker skin.

Occasionally I'm interested in why some people chose the insults they do. Some are quite clever actually!!

People hear mutate and freak out

They all do mutate and guess what they sometimes mutate and go out of existence totally, or become relegated to the absolute plethora of other minor viruses blowing around in the world.

It's why some biologists believe it's better to leave it alone instead of introducing vaccines that can trigger mutations.

A Dr in our Family said the virus is mutating every 10 hrs and the only way to deal with it is a strong immune system, and response. What they used to tell us we need "herd immunity" not drugs and who knows what.

What are the numbers in open states versus locked down states again?

You do know at its height Typhoid killed 20% of those infected, it killed across all demographics and age groups. While it's difficult to guess its transmission rate it's probably safe to assume it was significantly higher than COVID and sustain that higher transmission rate for a much longer period of time.

Covid maxed out for about 3 weeks and settled into that 1.4-1.3 range nationally. Right now COVID is pulling a 0.92.

The basic interpretation of this number is as follows

If R is below 1, the epidemic is shrinking.
If R is around and slightly above 1, the epidemic could be either shrinking or growing, but slowly.
If R is larger than 2 the the mitigation is insufficient to keep the epidemic under control, and the growth is rapid.

Apathy FTW!



/sarcasm


Genuinely thankful there are enough people overall that have a substantial enough emotional IQ to make those who fall short, the minority. What an incredibly immature and whole-heartedly selfish line of thinking.

How do you think they can trace it back through different family clusters? It doesn't replicate perfectly.

The entire genome doesn't change at once. All the genes that don't change provide the connection. Sort of like tracing our neanderthal heritage.

Not all the changes will have have much of an effect. Some do.

and the ones that do have to sustain being spread through hosts more efficiently than other variants to gain any traction... and as you say, a lot of changes can happen without much effect vs. the immunity people are building via infection or vaccination... certainly not on an order of EVERY TEN HOURS.
