Told you!!

Looking at the massive increase in cases in the SE of the UK and London, this is a very infectious version of the virus.  Let's hope that's the only negative and that the virus doesn't become more dangerous or resistant to vaccines.

Have just heard a scientist explain why this virus is more infectious. He says that the typical swab from cases of this mutation contain anything up to 100x the viruses of a normal Covid swab. The assumption is that people with the new version are shedding viruses at a vastly higher rate and that's why it's spreading so quickly.

Not good news, I'm afraid.

So the Apex Predator on Earth is a microscopic organism.

Probably always has been, but humans are too arrogant to see it.

Since humans can kill viruses doesn't that rather confuse the issue?

Stupid is as Stupid does...the Founders knew and accepted 'Stupid' - to the point where they didn't delineate when it came to Who should B able to run for elections in America.

I guess the Founders assumed that the people would never vote for someone who was clearly 'stupid' even if  a political party supported the nomination.

And yet the fatality rate is less than 1 percent.  Y is it that the mainstream media never talks about this?

U say that We humans R too arrogant to acknowledge this 'predator.  Really?  I disagree.  WE know 'its' out there.  We prefer to go about our business just like our ancestors did with the viruses of their day.  What's the alternative?  Shall we crawl into a cave somewhere?  Wait!  We have crawled into a 'cave' - it's called a lockdown.  More and more legal minds R asking the likes of our prison wardens:  WHAT'S YOUR EVIDENCE THAT LOCKDOWN/MASKS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH STOPPING COVID?

I would suggest that the Arrogants among us R those making the rules...rules that have no basis in fact.

The Press do talk about it, but it really is irrelevant.

What is more relevant is the rate at which covid will kill our sick and elderly relatives. We're talking a 10 to 20% CFR.

Perhaps you have no-one vulnerable in your own family, but most of us do which is why we should take every precaution not to kill them.

Alas I M one of the vulnerable.  My name is on The List for a vaccine.

Yes U R correct it's the elderly who R dying from this virus...more than any other group.  

So then THAT is where the attention should go NOT to the entire population right now.  

America must Open up just like our ancestors did with their pandemics.  Between 20-50 Million died worldwide from the Spanish Flu in 1918...675K in the USA.  What makes us think that somehow COVID is that much different from the previous pandemics?  It strikes where it wants and we have to live and die with that reality.
