Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 Covid-19

A new KFC-like fast food restaurant open yesterday :hugs:. No sit-in.

Yeah it means quarantining old sick people. Their own space not in an institution. They will die and the rest of us won’t if exposed to covid19.

In fact to get herd immunity 60% of the healthy need to be exposed. This SiP crap for the healthy just delays the inevitable.
There is no vaccine and there won’t be an effective one in 4 years maybe.
Everyone needs to be exposed. Quarantine the sick and vulnerable. The rest will be exposed. It is going to happen even if all those hoping for a vaccine hold their breath and hide at home for the next 4 years.

Stanford professor says lockdown saved no lives and likely cost some.
This is of course obvious and many here have been saying it for months. But some folks just don’t accept anything unless it’s from the mouth of a PhD.

Study: Texas leads the country at coronavirus spread

HK sucks.

The virology lab in Wuhan, the city at the heart of the outbreak, was working on three live strains of bat coronavirus, but none of them match the one that has caused the Covid-19 pandemic, its director has said.

Wang Yanyi, the director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, told Chinese state broadcaster CGTN that the closest genetic match to the virus spreading around the world was only 79.8%

Trump has previously said the US would see fewer than 100,000 deaths, a claim in contrast to 12 models the CDC uses. Deborah Birx of the White House coronavirus task force has repeatedly asserted the number of deaths by 1 June will be between 100,000 and 240,000 – if mitigation strategies continue.

Contrary to beliefs of Trump and certain bloggers, Birx’s model is fairly accurate :sneezing_face:

The first model said 2.5M. That’s what created all the fear to justify SIP. We aren’t overwhelming the healthcare system, so why is SIP needed?

I have no opinion on such judgment call decision. SIP, testing and how to quarantine are interrelated. Is up to political leaders to decide the mix. Effectiveness depends on culture and healthcare infrastructure, best leave to political leaders.

This is a good thing, but skip the sunscreen and don’t stay long enough to burn. The Vitamin D will help with the CV19.

People can get all the sun they want in their own backyard. Healthier than frying your skin off on a beach too.
