Bad day at the construction site

It's looking like the only way to beat COVID-19 without a vaccine is going to be via herd immunity like how we beat the chicken pox before a vaccine was developed for that. Dr. Fauci says that it's probably going to be a seasonal thing, which sounds like just another flu shot for you folks to pester the anti-vaxxers into getting every year.

Quote
Coronavirus could become a seasonally recurring menace, the nationís top infectious-disease expert warned Sunday.

ďUnless we get this globally under control there is a very good chance that itíll assume a seasonal nature,Ē Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CBSís ďFace The Nation.Ē

Doubtful. Coronaviruses cause the common cold. The flu is influenza, which is a different virus altogether.

Just heard our Prime Minister is now in intensive care with Covid-19. A comedian who was big back in the '70s and '80s (part of a double act called Little and Large), died from it. The Scottish Chief Medical Officer has been more or less forced to step down after she was caught out breaking the don't travel to holiday homes two weekends in a row.

Me too. I had a bad bout of what were probably allergies just as the story was starting to gain momentum. People thought I was joking when I told them I hoped I had the virus, but I really wanted that sweet, sweet immunity.

rev, there's no gaurantee at all that recovering from the virus will mean immunity, i've read several stories about doctors worldwide thinking that some of the people they're treating for it now were re-infected.

You're right, there's no guarantee, but there is an excellent chance.

i'd say it's 50/50 it's possible if you get it and you live through it you won't get it again and there's another 50% that if you get it once and live thorough it you can get it again even easier. either way they have no idea or proof which one is right or hell even if my percentage is right or wrong

I think I may have had it in January.

ALSO

follow up to the controversial column I posted last week

https://www.takimag.com/article/wuhan-derangement-syndrome/

In this one, the author attempts to steer the wuhan origin story away from the "escaped from a lab" hypothesis to the wet market one, which is still the one most people know.

Quote
The science on SARS is uncontested, but thatís only because it didnít become a huge international plague. SARS conspiracy theories didnít drive web traffic, so the fantasists let it be. But with COVID, we want a mad scientist in a lab as the villain, not a billion arrogant, selfish, but ordinary a***oles who refuse to alter their gutter tastes in the name of saving lives.

I think I may have had it in January.

I had those same symptoms that they listed to look out for when I was last sick at the end of September. I just remember that it felt different from a regular cold because of how quick that it arrived, it stuck around for 5 days or so, and then the fever went away and other than losing my voice for a couple of days and coughing up a bunch of crap out of my lungs I felt just fine.

I know that September is outside the fringe of when it was first reported in November, but you can't trust any information that comes out of China anymore. As much as China had tried to "Chernobyl" this whole thing, it honestly wouldn't surprise me if we all had a touch of it throughout last year already before it had mutated into something much more contagious later in the year.

I constantly go in and out of the city and specifically the airport and haven't been sick since then. I'll never know I guess
