Dear potential fellow Coronists........

Dear potentional fellow Coronists,

 

Why follow the "findings" concernig the virus on the internet at 2 minute intervals? Most "findings" are speculative, mostly originating from some unqualified rumor mills.

All we can do is apply "common-sense" rules. Social-Distancing above everything else.
And wait for a vaccine.

 

Next problem: Assuming a vaccine becomes available. Take a country with a population of 80 Million. Even if you can vaccinate 100'000 people per day (a logistic masterpiece), it would take 800 days to vaccinate everybody!!!!!!!!!

But lo and behold: In spite of recent minor corrections, the international stock-markets are still signaling "everything will be fine and dandy". How assuring.
---------------------
The main thing is that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, with or without the virus. All is well.

Scientists warn of new coronavirus variant spreading across Europe

Genetic mutation that originated in Spain transmitted by returning holidaymakers, researchers find

A coronavirus variant that originated in Spanish farm workers has spread rapidly through much of Europe since the summer, and now accounts for the majority of new Covid-19 cases in several countries — and more than 80 per cent in the UK. An international team of scientists that has been tracking the virus through its genetic mutations has described the extraordinary spread of the variant, called 20A.EU1, in a research paper to be published on Thursday. Their work suggests that people returning from holiday in Spain played a key role in transmitting the virus across Europe, raising questions about whether the second wave that is sweeping the continent could have been reduced by improved screening at airports and other transport hubs. Because each variant has its own genetic signature, it can be traced back to the place it originated.

As the OP, I am afraid that this thread may elevate itself into the realms of mythology/fiction and "I have read it on Facebook". I hope that it is not going in that direction.
 
Yes, Viruses can mutate. Mutate from bad to worse (in our perception). Or mutate from bad to a little bit less bad (in our perception). Perfectly normal for a Virus. Same for humans, but it takes a lot longer for anything to mutate concerning humans.

 

To be sure, 2 weeks from now a new study will emerge that claims that the worst recent virus-variation has originated from Eastern-Timbuktu.

3 weeks later an other study will emerge, claiming that the "Timbuktu" Virus was imported to the UK by underemployed London-City-Bankers, holidaying in Eastern Timbuktu without the permission of Boris Johnson.

4 weeks later, an other study will emerge, claiming that the Timbuktu-Story can not be scientifically supported, soon to be replaced by another study more bizzare as the one before.

 

Before further "studies" emerge, claiming that old Romainian-Gypsies have found out that Garlick will cure any desease, as long as it is administered anally, I would kindly ask the moderators to close this thread.

 

Eventually this pandemic will be reighned in. By a vaccine, but mostly by a typical human trait that is called COMMON SENSE.

 

Animals and high ranking polititians seem to be uncapable of relating to Common-Sense. As their Common-Sense has been corrupted by "Economical-Interests". Long before Mr. Corona ever knocked on our doors.

No, just stick with the "meat pie" followers on facebook. You will feel much at home.
