The P&R Plague Thread (Covid-19)

Sadly, I think this is correct.

 

And I think we're going to see Trump wringing his hands in a few weeks talking about this terrible tragedy that's unfolding that we just couldn't do anything about.

Had not seen that mutation chart yet, thanks for sharing. I've been seeing a misconception out there that this is NOT mutating. The opposite seems to be true. Do viruses usually mutate this quickly, is this a normal thing? 

 

Edit: another question you may not have the answer to, but is it also possible some gene structures for mutated versions of COVID 19 could go undetected in a test? 

Research has showed it’s a very slow mutater, unlike the flu. And vaccines would be very effective.

That's kinda where I'm at with it. He can say what he wants but when the numbers keep going up and up there will be nothing he can do

Good to know though we are talking about a herd immunity approach. I'd assume slow mutation means better chance we can slowly build a herd immunity? Or is that not how it works and 1 mutation can throw everything off?

Here’s the discussion I found on it, no discussion on immunity, they focused on vaccine. But they seem to think it’s a double edged sword, low mutations is good for vaccine, but generally the virus would mutate to become less deadly, so less likely we get that.

Steph Curry is doing a livestream with Dr. Fauci today.

I do think my generation (Millennials) is taking this seriously for the most part, but stuff like that will help educate. 

 

I've experienced much more ignorance with the older generations. My (diabetic) dad in KC is out and about. My Omaha law firm partners that make the decisions still downplay it as a hoax and have all our staff (including a 90 year old receptionist) in every day, while me and most of my vintage attorneys are working from home.

Please tell me that have made it clear to her that she at least has the "option" to not come in....

Very interesting information, thank you for sharing! Hopefully slow mutating also means better chance of immunity at least for 12 months. That will be a helpful containment tool

Check out that subreddit when you have a minute. All research articles, they leave politics out of it. Great discussion

i think you are optimistic if you think he will say we couldn't do anything about it.  he will throw blame around like he always does IMO.   there can be no trace of any blame that can stick with him...it is someone else.....always   he did all he could...it's all the democrats fault. they derailed all his efforts.

Trump has already placed the blame where he thinks it should be.  The previous admin left us unprepared per his recent statements. 

Notwithstanding Trump has

1  been in office 3 years,

2  disbanded the pandemic response team,

3  shut down the office in China that Obama had established to monitor these very situations,

4   was slow to respond,

5  called it a hoax,

6  said it would be over in weeks

7  been the most useless 'leader' ever as a president in a major crisis

8 lives in a state of denial and invites his cult followers to follow him off the cliff

9 is exposing us to greater harm with his 'rosy forecast'  of opening up everything by Easter

10 etc and etc
