    I wouldn't worry too much. Eric Feigl-Ding has a pretty long history of exaggerating data for maximum freak-out effect.

    We have multiple vaccines, we have effective treatments, and we have effective preventions.

    I'm glad you deleted and rewrote your post. I saw it and have no doubt it would have merited an instant swing of the ban hammer. Utterly shameful.

    Meanwhile all of the Governors who were recently locking everything down suddenly, and inexplicably, want to open their economies back up.

    I wonder why....

    He was one of the first to sound the alarm in January of last year. Evidence layed out here suggests the specific mutation in Brazil means the vaccines won't work, and neither will your immune system as it evades antibody detection, which warrants freaking out. We have treatments, but if the hospitals are overwhelmed, you won't get them. A virus that your immune system can't fight off and having no access to treatments would be a catastrophe.

    Just research the source a bit. All I'm asking.

    I researched his sources. They check out. I used his thread because it was the best distillation of all the data. Who he is, is irrelevant.

    They opened Indiana to 70 plus on Wednesday and was able to get a family friend signed up online. The people calling in on phones wait time was 10 hours and using app was able to get her signed up in less than an hour. She will get first shot next Saturday.

    For balance, here’s a slightly less breathless reportage on the same general stuff

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/15/braz...ow-so-far.html

    We always knew it would mutate, that’s what virii do and will always do. We adapt flu vaccines every year to what strains and mutations are presenting. This will, indeed, be an every year thing forevermore. We are not doomed, as we haven’t been doomed in the past.

    California is still on a lockdown and their cases are still very high.
