:study: Re: https://thenationalpulse.com/news/un-ex ... bioweapon/

"Given the many mutations of COVID-19, it is extremely unlikely that a single vaccine that blocks the virus will be found. At the moment 11 different strains have been identified: the A2a genetic line which developed in Europe and the B1 genetic line which took root in North America are more contagious than the 0 strain originating in Wuhan. I therefore believe that, at the most, a multivalent vaccine can be found effective on 4-5 strains and thus able to cover 70-75% of the world’s population."

:idea: What to hope for in a good vaccine, apparently. And "book contends that China conducted bioengineering experiments with financial and personnel assistance from France and the U.S." may explain why no country wants to publicly identify the real source of the coronavirus. :roll:

"Schools that reopened fully and early are seeing hundreds of students, staff and teachers put into quarantine as Covid-19 spreads.
Some are closing buildings opened just days ago. Others are frantically looking for workarounds"

:roll: Not surprising, given such a unique, lab-created(?) coronavirus! However, creative "workarounds" may still permit reopened schools, especially when air transmission is given more attention. Of course, getting to and from the classroom (and those adults) also requires creative solutions and serious participation in prevention.

Apparent trend: Safe 'n effective vaccines (and that participation) will be the realistic solution. ;)

"government scientists have begun efforts to manufacture a strain of the novel coronavirus that could be used in human challenge trials of vaccines, a controversial type of study in which healthy volunteers would be vaccinated and then intentionally infected with the virus"

:duh Obviously, when science gets a bit too confident (create the disease to test a vaccine).
And wasn't this the conjecture about Wuhan (creating a coronavirus to test vaccines). :roll:

:study: Re: https://science.sciencemag.org/content/369/6505/756

"Marina Pollán of the Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid, who led Spain's antibody survey, says Africa's youthfulness may protect it. Spain's median age is 45; in Kenya and Malawi, it's 20 and 18, respectively. Young people around the world are far less likely to get severely ill or die from the virus. And the population in Kenya's cities, where the pandemic first took hold, skews even younger than the country as a whole, says Thumbi Mwangi, an epidemiologist at the University of Nairobi." :o

:study: Re: https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/14/health/u ... index.html

" 'If the United States allowed coronavirus infections to run rampant to achieve possible herd immunity, the death toll would be massive, especially among vulnerable people,' the nation's top infectious doctor said. 'With the number of people with hypertension. With the number of people with diabetes. If everyone got infected, the death toll would be enormous and totally unacceptable,' Fauci said." :roll:

:idea: Interesting correlation: A country with a very low median age and few elderly (and few vulnerable adults) might be able to create herd immunity by letting the virus "run rampant". This suggests why Western countries have to control the spread of this coronavirus or else risk creating a country with few elderly and few vulnerable adults. Currently, this very large group would not vote for such societal policy. ;)

"Russian developer of world's first Covid-19 vaccine says it will protect against killer virus for at least TWO YEARS"
"At first, formula is only being offered to the especially vulnerable, such as front-line medical workers and teachers."
"there's still over four months of trials to go before it is offered to the wider public."

:idea: Apparently, "TWO YEARS" is a scientific estimate ... since trials are still ongoing!
This might be like a car battery warranty (discount for next vaccine if first doesn't last 2 years). :roll:

:study: Re: https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/t ... ll-resumes

"It’s not clear why testing has fallen off, even as many areas of the country are still experiencing serious outbreaks. Health experts suspect some Americans, jaded by images of long testing lines and the possibility of results taking a week or longer, are deciding not to bother unless they’re ill. Others have suggested that mixed messages about the disease ... could deter people from seeking tests."

:scratch: Best guess: Everyone has decided what "facts" they're going to believe and behave accordingly. The coronavirus will probably spread about the same for weeks longer, but might increase when people stay indoors more for colder weather. Achoo! (colds and flu season is approaching) ;)

Tips: 1) A good immune system is always worth the effort :!:
2) "unless they're ill" suggests that asymptomatics are not ill. :roll:
3) Some people die - most live; try not to be "at risk". :finger:

"With so much information available about the severity of the coronavirus and the need to follow guidelines, some people still refuse to accept reality. The denial manifests itself in many ways, whether that be refusing to wear a mask or attending large gatherings. Using denial as a coping mechanism is not always a bad choice. Short-term, it gives someone the time to adjust to a situation." 8)

:idea: Actually, more complicated than this, with some experts (and government leaders) not accepting the reality (e.g., mass graves suddenly needed in some countries and ICUs/mortuaries being overwhelmed in many cities - worldwide). On the other hand, the virus is much better understood now and can be managed when asymptomatics (especially) stop spreading it ... apparently. :roll:

"FLU has killed more people in the UK than coronavirus for seven weeks in a row, new stats reveal today. Almost five times as many people
are now dying of influenza or pneumonia than Covid-19, according to the latest data from the Office for National Statistics." :o

:idea: Makes good news, but science has proven (for months) that seasonal influenza and this new coronavirus are not the same disease,
with the virus requiring different management and solutions. Besides, "herd immunity" exists for the flu (at least for many people)
but no significant immunity existed for this coronavirus when it first started spreading in late 2019. :roll:

:roll Fortunately, various vaccines are now being tested - worldwide - and countries are learning that lockdowns are not necessary
when populations seriously participate in pandemic prevention. ;)

"university heads have re-structured the entire fall semester hoping to avoid outbreaks and a second shutdown. Institutions that opted not to start classes solely online have adopted new features for move-in, including temperature checks, coronavirus testing, mandatory quarantines, plexiglass dividers and other additions meant to minimize contact between students and staff." :finger:

:idea: This also highlights a reason why asymptomatics would not want to get tested:
they will be forced to quarantine even if they think they can manage the infection.
(if infection is suspected, it's wise to plan for quarantine before the test) ;)

"He has called it a 'good thing' for younger, healthy people to be exposed to the virus ...
bemoaned that lockdowns may have prevented the development of 'natural herd immunity'.” 8)

"In the absence of immunization, society needs circulation of the virus, assuming high-risk people can be isolated"

:idea: Quite a challenge to isolate, considering that high-risk people (those with diabetes, heart disease, obese, and/or other illness) are also less than 65 and include children! But if true about facilitating herd immunity, then coronavirus parties (contests to be the first to contract it) are not unreasonable! Those at risk not invited but may participate since some "at risk" may have immunity to this virus ... apparently. :finger:

immune responses to the virus for months now, believe the recent findings are encouraging signs." :roll

But human immune response to lab-created vaccines is a different matter. :roll:

"Oleandrin is the chemical that causes the plant’s lethal toxicity. It is known by scientists as a cardiac glycoside, a class of organic compounds with a common feature: They exhibit powerful effects on heart tissue, often with deadly consequences.

A pre-print article – that is, an article not peer-reviewed by other scientists – is now online. It reports how, in a test tube, oleandrin reduces production of the virus responsible for COVID-19. But this does not take into account the well-known cardiac toxicity of the chemical when consumed by an animal or human."

:bana: A chemical that "reduces production of the virus responsible for COVID-19" might seem a candidate for a COVID-19 cure, but it's not proven yet! There must be hundreds of chemicals that seem a cure ... in a test tube or according to hundreds - even thousands - of anecdotes. :roll:

:duh After months of such news about "cures", there are still none! However, there are drugs and procedures that minimize complications of the disease (and prevent deaths), but the human immune system is still what "cures". ;)

... and this is why vaccines are being rushed to market :!:
