Thanks Vladimir for your input. Your use of 'oligarch' and 'communist' was a 'tell.' Classic projection. 

For 40 years your government has stroked Donald Trump so he could do your bidding when the time was right.

Covid 19 was NOT just an unlucky twist of fate for the human race when the timing of it fits so perfect with the Trump re-election scenario, race riots, ridiculous campaigning mass spreader events, and everything else Trump could think up to get more people infected. Including pretending he contracted it and making it look like an old unhealthy fat slob like him could get over it no problem.

Covid 19 has been lazy until we fight back and then it mutates into something worse.

It's in it's 4th cycle mutation now, gradually getting more contagious and deadly. 

That's what it takes to totally take down a species.

If it was very bad right off the bat it would have killed all the hosts and it couldn't spread. At one point it was just like a flu. The little fooler. The wolf in sheep's clothing. The grim reaper with a smiley face mask. 

So it plays us all as fools, gets itself spread far and wide THEN makes it's final moves to kill the maximum humans. 

Every time a human takes their chances with the virus, catches it, they are rolling the dice for all of us. 

When the roll comes up snake eyes you have a brand new killer that gets to use your body to incubate. 

Personally, I figure we will get what we deserve and what the universe has in mind for us.

We could be easily kicked to the curb just like the dinosaurs were. 

At this point I doubt we really have much say in the matter.

My goal is the least amount of suffering on the way out. 

That means wearing a mask and watching others suffer.

It's the lessor of the evils.

This sounds like some fake news. During this pandemic period, I have heard so much fake news about coronavirus that I don't know which to believe. Also, the opinions of doctors always are different and changing so fast about this new disease. In my opinion, we can't say at the moment how the vaccine will behave, because not so many people were vaccinated. For not getting fake news I use kisspr news service. I like this site because it has a lot of articles from different categories, including medicine and they are renewing their articles every day and you always have what to read.

I get my news from CNN. It's always checked and double checked. It stands the test of time. 

The link you provided is to what is most likely fake news because it's a small isolated outlet where they get you in a corner and treat you like a mushroom; kept in the dark and fed crap.

ABC NEWS is fine also;

 

South African COVID variant can chip away at vaccine efficacy -- but the vaccine can still save your life

The current vaccines will still prevent severe illness and hospitalization.

Dr. Fauci: Next 6 weeks are critical in battle against new COVID-19 variants

The chief medical adviser to the president discusses what the country needs to do, from the natio...Read More

Since the emergence of several new COVID-19 variants across the globe, scientists have been racing to understand their impact on vaccines.

Early laboratory experiments showed worrying signs that one variant -- the one that originated in South Africa -- could become a big problem. And now, two large experiments in thousands of people have confirmed that our current approach to vaccines is unlikely to be as effective against this particular variant.

But it's not all bad news, scientists say. Up against the South African variant, also known as B1.351, an excellent vaccine boasting more than 90% efficacy against disease is still a very good vaccine that can save your life.

The first jolt of potentially worrying news came from Moderna and Pfizer -- both of which have COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration. Working in a laboratory, these companies found clues that their vaccines might not work quite as well against the mutations in the South African variant. Still, these lab studies were difficult to discern, their full impact unclear.

But then came more concrete data from studies in people. One large study from the pharmaceutical company Novavax -- one of the six Operation Warp Speed companies which has yet to win FDA authorization -- showed the vaccine was roughly 90% effective when tested in the U.K. but only 50% effective when tested in South Africa, where the B1.351 variant is dominant.

These results -- the first large study in people -- weighed heavily on some scientists. Almost all the vaccines that have been authorized or are in late-stage development target the original virus's spike protein. The South African variant contains mutations within that crucial target.

"I believe the data imply that other vaccines that use the wild type spike protein or its sequence will be reduced for efficacy against the South African variant," said Akiko Iwasaki, Ph.D., a Yale University immunologist.

 

"It's fair to assume [Novovax's results] would be similar for all the vaccines because they all target spike, but we should also not freak out," said Angela Rasmussen, Ph.D., a virologist at the Georgetown Center for Global Health Science and Security in Washington, D.C.

The next day, pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson -- testing its own still-experimental one-shot vaccine -- found similar results. Their vaccine was 72% effective in the United States but only 57% in South Africa.

"It is likely that all vaccines will show substantially lower efficacy against the strain that originated in South Africa," said Dr. Dan Barouch, Ph.D., director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston.

Major vaccine makers have announced plans to develop an updated version of their vaccines -- tweaked to address the specific mutations found in the South African variant.

"All the vaccine manufacturers are doing what they should be: getting to work testing reformulated vaccines that should work against the variants," said Rasmussen.

"The best way to combat this variant is to use the spike proteins from the variant as the antigen," said Akiko.

But experts say that although less effective against the South African variant, the current vaccines are likely to save your life if you become infected with it.

In a recent trial, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, for example, was 85% effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalization -- no matter the variant.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, said the average American should focus on how effective the vaccines are against severe illness, despite the inclination to want to know if a vaccine will prevent you from getting sick at all.

On a call with reporters, he said the most important thing "is to keep people out of the hospital and prevent them from getting severe illness."

Other experts agree that we should focus more on preventing hospitalizations and death, and less on mild infections.

"Obviously it's no fun having mild illness," said Dr. Paul Offit, a member of the FDA's advisory committee, director of the Vaccine Education Center and professor of pediatrics in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

"But the real question is, how effective was it at keeping people out of the hospital?" Offit said. "From the standpoint of making a vaccine for this pandemic, your goal is keeping people out of the hospital and out of the morgue."

ABC News' Stephanie Ebbs contributed to this report.

I hear people saying that Covid - 19 is no more than a common cold or had hangover worse than Covid. 

I have to call BS on these theories. 

I had Covid and still have a few symptoms after4 months.

Lost 10 pound in a weeks time, high fever, sweats, congestion in lungs, hallucinating, and no energy.

I've been told to hold off on the shot since I still have some of the systems.

So in closing, Covid is real and I do wear a mask who going out. Trying to help protect others.

I hear you. My neighbor who loves everything Trump says it's just the flu. Says everything else to the contrary is fake news. He was radicalized by the small news sites.

I've known one person who died from the flu in 65 years. I've known eight who have died from Covid in the last year.

      Imagine your child is sick…and then you discover that there is something that can bring them relief…BUT you must break the law in order to access that it, and risk the wrath of law enforcement, and worse yet, the threat of Child Protective Services knocking on your door one day and taking your child from you. Would you take the risk to help your child? The new documentary “Weediatrics”, explores stories of families at the heart of this issue. These brave parents went on camera to tell their stories, in hope of creating a greater understanding and empathy for desperate families across the country in similar situations. On this episode of Let’s Be Blunt, Montel explores this topic with the films producer, Erin O’Hearn.

      In this Special Edition episode of Let's Be Blunt, Montel Williams and fellow veterans speak out in support of medical cannabis in a virtual press conference organized by MPP in hopes of furthering the Compassionate Cares Act introduced by lawmakers earlier this year in South Carolina. According to the Veterans Affairs National website, veterans will not lose access to benefits if they use medical cannabis through a state sanctioned program, but they cannot allow use or possession at any VA facility due to federal laws, “Veteran participation in state marijuana programs does not affect eligibility for VA care and services. VA providers can and do discuss marijuana use with Veterans as part of comprehensive care planning, and adjust treatment plans as necessary.”
