Does the coronavirus merit investment, or personal, concern or consideration?

For blockheads like me, who fit part of that description, the question is not very easy at all. I’ve known 5 people who were visited by Wuhan. Three of them were elderly or not in the best of health. All five recovered within 3 days and experienced mild flu-like symptoms.

Yes, I know it’s anecdotal, but it’s hard to fly in the face of what you know. After looking at all of the “sky is falling” reports and all of the do as I say and not as I do actions of maskers, my thoughts are to not get the vaccine. Actually, my preference is to not take anything developed in the past 8 - 10 years. Thus, I may trust the vaccine marketed today in 2028, if it hasn’t been proved to be a fraud (both threat and cure). :wink:

““If you’re asking me when is it going to be generally available to the American public so we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we’re probably looking at third … late second quarter, third quarter 2021,” he told the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies.”

South Park is returning with a Covid19-focused 1 hour special, airing in a couple weeks.

I’m looking forward to finally getting some straight information on this whole fiasco. :slight_smile:

Happy days!

I hope we hear the best news going. We are ready… Even if they tell us early or middle of 2021 the vaccine will be out & about.

By that time, we’ll have our great President Trump in the White House. We’ll all be back out on the streets. (I hope)

Should someone tell her? I mean that comment makes absolutely zero sense…
Can’t be me, we’re not on speaking terms :slight_smile:

Also I predict someone is gonna die and I hope it’s Kenny. By COVID or maybe by an endotracheal tube or some other medical malfeasance, run over by an ambulance, or maybe even something unrelated, like self-strangulation from being bored in quarantine. I’ve missed this bit from the early seasons.

1-hr isn’t gonna be enough, they need to create a whole season based on our reality, as they often do :smiley:

…as long as it isn’t pre-empted for a Terrance and Phillip special.

Kenny will survive Covid, the ICU, an ambulance accident, being torched by rioters, an injection of bleach, and probably a couple police raids. Only to be taken out by a murder hornet.

Trump mistakenly tells weeping voter her mother died of coronavirus, not cancer

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-mistakenly-tells-weeping-voter-213012555.html

Well that’s just blatantly false.

“I mean as far as your situation with your mother, that is just devastating because I can imagine how you feel and it sounds like a great woman,” Mr Trump began. “The love that you have for your mother, I can see that, it’s hard. And so many people and they die alone. They die alone because this is such a vicious thing. You can’t go there and hold their hand. You can’t give them a kiss good night. It’s a terrible, terrible thing. And hopefully the vaccines are going to be very soon, hopefully. Did you have Covid? You didn’t have it right?”

Lots and lots of people have died alone because of this virus, who never had the virus. It’s been a pretty consistent story line all along, the isolation the terminal ill have been sentenced to in their final days. People nearing death without having Covid, with family member unexposed to Covid, yet being forbidden from being together despite their dire circumstances.

He didnt tell her her mother died of coronavirus. He was talking about her being unable to be with her mother while her mother was dying, because of coronavirus.

The way I see it, President Trump was the comforter in this situation. He was kind, considerate, nice & almost loving. A person talking to someone that is grieving for her dead mother, I belive would appreciate the act.

I don’t understand any reason Argyll would post this. I know he wasn’t meaning any kindness to Trump & surly could care less about the grieving women.

Quite sad, in my opinion.

Trump’s Coronavirus ‘Herd Mentality’ Claim

““You’ll develop like a herd mentality,” Trump explained. “It’s gonna be herd-developed and that’s gonna happen.””

Observers were stunned by both Trump’s inability to tell the difference as well as the idea that the president may be entertaining herd immunity as a public health strategy:

Estimates are that, if herd immunity is possible, at least 3 million Americans would die without a vaccine." Not to mention the chronic long term problems that millions of people would have, like heart and organ weakness, lung weakness, cognitive problems.

“If you’re asking me when it is going to be generally available to the American public so we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we’re probably looking at late second quarter, third quarter 2020,” Redfield said.

So within the next two weeks…

Assuming that’s just a Yahoo typo… Common sense says that the only way it takes another full year, is if today’s leading vaccine contenders all fail. That’s the whole purpose of Operation Warp Speed - the top candidates are already in production, with the goal of having 300 million doses distributed by this January. Failure to approve any of the options is the only thing that will drag this out past this winter.

Approval poses a significant risk, so no, it’s not guaranteed. But all these extended timelines are being based on production and distribution requirements, not approval. Which does make no sense.

PFE saying there’s a good chance they will have proof their vaccine works by late Oct. then it’s however long the FDA wants to take for approval or EUA, as production is already underway.

They already have 30k people in it, and are expanding to 44k or something. And unlike the AZN trial, I haven’t heard any reports of adverse events either which bodes well in its absence.

A Chinese virologist claimed the coronavirus was ‘intentionally’ released. Turns out, she works for a group led by Steve Bannon.

Instead of going to the CDC, WHO, UN, or other governments and agencies, she goes to Steve Bannon, and then on Tucker Carlson’s show, a known non-expert on viruses.

(Ownership responsibility for the failure results and size of the death count)

Canceling this (along with other discouragement of using the most powerful tool we have/ had) must of been part of the “up-playing” the virus.
