Pandemic Update for 2021-08-31: C.1.2 — 2 Comments

  1. Good news, while at the same time, depressing news. 🙁 I’m a Pollyanna. Not to encourage bad karma, but I can count on one hand the number of times I’m had the flu; colds only on a blue moon; and I successfully fight off bacteria always. I believe I have an immune system as strong as the Rock of Gibraltar. I just hurt for those families whose members are anti-vax. Sad times. Almost reminds me of medieval blood libel. I am, however, among those who see nefarious intent behind CPC work on viruses. I’ve read Mao Tse Tung. Khrushchev was pretty close to the mark when he said, “We will bury you!” What!? Me!? Paranoid!? Could you please change the channel to “American’s Got Talent”! 🤪

    • (Should “CPC” above read “CDC”?) Just listening to a podcast with Zeynep Tufecki [ https://is.gd/hPoWwY ] and she points out a subtlety: anyone who wants to develop a bioweapon is barking up the wrong (family) tree if they start with a coronavirus. They just are not that dangerous.
