That is pretty idiotic. I think stuff like this could've been midigated if the their hadn't been such a pearl clunching attitude and unreasonable demands of some of the lockdown areas that ignore humanity. Sure, we need to do a lockdown but don't act like it's easy matter.

Like Governor Cuomo I suppose there is a question of what's worse; not doing anything or doing a variety of things that are sometimes mixed and with glaring hypocrisies on a large scale. All and all though, sans a few governors(and sadly the ones that aren't getting the praise for it) the USA response was problematic on all levels.

I am so angry today because I cannot go to my favourite shopping mall. I hate God and am very angry with China for making the Covid virus. I think God wants to use the virus to force us to worship Him and suffer by losing everything!

I am also angry at the stupid people of my country for causing more infections and the lockdown. Will this stupid virus go on forever?

Unless it crosses the blood-brain-barrier by selectively navigating the olfactory bulb, at that point all the vitamins in the world is just piss in the wind.


Or if it starts attacking ACE2 receptors in the testes of male patients, leading to likely permanent reductions in sperm counts and possible sterility.


Or the numerous people who have an increase in clotting factor leading to strokes and heart attacks. Or the multiple organ failure once again traced to the ACE2 receptors.

Or if they have Lupis, or HIV. Or are overweight, or have diabetes, or high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.



The smoothest way to sail with this virus is to not get it in the first place.

You do realize that both it and the Moderna vaccine use an almost functionally identical system?

The key differences are in the stabilizing agents, some of the additives, and the production and storage methods.

All the data I've seen would indicate that their efficacy rates are nearly identical, only varying by at most 2% between them. Both are on average over 90% effective, and both have their pros and cons. Moderna can be stored at higher temperatures and remain stable longer, pfizer's has more restrictive storage but the time between injections is much shorter and the doses are lower.


As for the allergic reactions to it, a report from December found 21 confirmed cases of anaphylaxis from the Pfizer vaccine, out of over 1.8 million initial doses. With the likely factor being one of the stabilizing additives. Moderna has had confirmed reactions as well, most notably a doctor from Boston. And while less than Pfizer, there have also been less shots in the arm of Moderna, so that number is likely to increase.


I know you are desperate to confirm your biases, I get that, but this is just nonsense.


Both vaccines are safe and effective, and both of them in tandem will help get us through this nightmare. Drop the false narratives and accept reality.

Ollo crew rejoice!

Yeah from my understanding they’re both perfectly functional and safe vaccines. Same goes for the Oxford one and even Sputnik V, despite the latter’s rushed deployment.

No one can say that with any real certainty. There’s a reason why these things usually take years of testing. I’m gonna be waiting a bit to see what the long term side effects are. No shame in that.

Not so funny fact:

The notoriety and popularity of Jens Spahn increased in the spring of 2020 with the outbreak of the coronavirus in Germany. In representative voter polls, the CDU politician from Münsterland was at times even ahead of Chancellor Angela Merkel, making him the most respected politician in the Republic.

The 40 years old, gay Federal Health Minister also received a lot of encouragement from the ranks of the opposition in the Bundestag in Berlin. But the failed Corona vaccination start could now be his undoing. So much so that, despite his original popularity, he probably won't even stand for election as the next Chancellor.

U mad?
If the new ones are more contagious, by the time the vaccine is fully distributed it may be too late to have an impact.
