So one year after Australia recorded it's first case the word ticks over 100 million
People recover because they can be treated in hospital if required. It's been clearly demonstrated that if there are no lock down measures then everyone gets sick at once and the hospitals get overwhelmed. If the hospitals get overwhelmed then the death rate is higher, not only from corona virus, but from anything else life threatening. Hospitals that are overwhelmed cause serious risk to the medical staff working in them. This thing is like the year 2000 bug where software was going to fail when the year ticked over to the new century because all the software was only using the last to digits of the year. It was going to cause chaos and planes could drop out of the sky. However, a massive effort was made to rewrite the software world wide, the year ticked over and nothing happened. Then ignorant people said "what was all the fuss about? It was a false alarm". A massive effort has been made to stop the spread of this thing. The balance of those numbers could have been vastly different if the circumstances were different.
Wasting your time with facts. Until one of their close family members dies as a result of the virus or they have lifelong complications...you,ll never fix stupid!!!
You know things are extremely serious when a Liberal government hands out a crap tonne of money. They had tears in their eyes, they even gave double to job seeker....that's almost apocalyptic level serious. They are very upset that they couldnt just target their marginal seats..
My gut feel is the vaccines will be a bit of a dud and lose their effectiveness in the same way the flu shot does. Trying to vaccinate billions of people yearly and trying to keep up with any new mutations seems insurmountable to me. I can see the drug companies rubbing their hands together at the prospect of a guaranteed yearly goldmine for the foreseeable future. Corona virus in cats is controlled by a drug that just stops the virus replicating, it doesn't kill it or produce antibodies to it. I think we need a pill to take that eases the symptoms so that a hospital visit isn't required. It would probably be our best shot at normality. What do my learned colleagues who also drive off road trucks think? .
I'm noticing that a lot of people have impacted cognitive function these days. I think it's just as contagious as the virus.Statistics speak not only of frequent neurological disorders but also an increase in the incidence of thrombosis in adults and children. By the way, this can have an impact on cognitive function if it blocks important vessels.
