Yep, which is fantastic news :nod:


Yeah, i mean knock on wood with variants but we are getting closer and closer an endemic. MErc/Moderna already have over the counter and perscription pills to treat covid symptoms and prevent major issue.

This isnt the flu. it never was, but from a risk perspective, we are inching closer to that ballpark. (where its immunocompromized and elderly who are really at risk along with a super miniscule portion of the population)



Right, which is the best case scenario. We've got vaccines that will be consistently updated to counter new strains, and actual prescription drugs that are pretty much a shoe in for FDA approval to treat severe cases in hospitals and at home for mild cases.

Despite the gloom and doom, and horrific politicization of this thing, there is daylight ahead and we're actually going to return to normal life at some point. Yeah, we'll have to probably end up with yearly boosters, but that's a small price to pay.


The mRNA vaccine is brilliant in that it targets the protien for the spike container of the corona virus, making it highly likely to work against most/all strains. instead of other virus signatures that are more prone to change.

Yep that's why I got an mRNA for a booster. Honestly it's mindblowing stuff when you read about the research behind mRNA and what it can possibly do for the future of humanity.

We hitting red zone numbers again. It's not sustainable. Data proves that vaccine work, Kyrie and his followers should get vaccinated. They have no idea what type of diversity they creating. This inflation can/will get worse if proper action/decisions won't be made.

I heard same thing from a delegate that work at the front desk. They turned multiple visitors to local city hospitals. Private MC not enthusiastic to deal with unvaccinated to say least. Going to ask my mom how city hospitals deal with that. As a nurse she should know more.

US open being played in Queens. Some major financial hit will be taken. Hope he made enough money.
