I wore masks for 18 hours straight on the flight from London to Guangzhou. Medical workers wear mask for 12 hours straight during their shift. Public service people (mostly) wear masks for the whole duration of their shift. And some crybabies can't. Why?

@Vivace
and the lies from US CDC in order to cover the fact of mask shortage at the very beginning
and severe lack of common sense. Surgical mask and normal N95 don't have that valve shit and thus block the flow on both directions. Therefore it not only blocks the wearer's germ from spitting out but also blocks foreign contamination from damaging their respiratory system. It's this simple.

2021's off to a great start

""New Covid variant found in UK may be more deadly than others

"We've been informed that in addition to spreading more quickly… there is some evidence that the new variant… may be more associated with a higher degree of mortality," Boris Johnson said at a news conference on Friday.

That's what I was afraid of, the pandemic's extension because COVID has ears, listening about the vaccines and now has been mutated.

Now the pandemic will be extended, more stuff will be delayed or cancelled, our family will be in debt, we'll be in lockdown again, filmmakers will go to war against streaming services, cancel culture will be stronger, and vaccines against the new variant will never destroy them. And I'll never find love ever again.

Oh great, now I am starting to sound like a doomer.

I didn't want it, but unfortunately I feared the worst will come since last year just… you know. I'm glad me and my family survived this pandemic, but I feel like it's gonna be a sequel or rerun of 2020. COVID-19 might be the highlight of the worst.

If COVID-19 didn't have any ears, the vaccines could have ended the pandemic real quick.

A relative of mine officially knows 3 people that died of corona… All friends or former co-workers, cousins mom is still extremely ill.

Also apparently my great aunt and her daughter have it. Not sure how sick they are.

The South African covid mutation ignores antibodies from previous infections

A mutant strain of the novel coronavirus discovered in South Africa appears to be able to ward off antibodies from individuals who had previously recovered from COVID-19 — meaning if the new strain becomes widespread, we may see more people getting infected multiple times.
Not only could this interfere with the human population's ability to develop natural immunity, it could also hamper the efficacy of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Both companies are distributing mRNA vaccines, which are different from traditional vaccines that train the immune system to develop antibodies against pathogens by injecting weakened or dead versions of the disease-causing agents into the body.
The South African strain is not the only one raising concern. There is a new strain in Brazil that the scientists argue "also has changes at key positions" in ways that could impair antibodies' effectiveness against the disease. Then there is a strain in the United Kingdom known as B117 that, though not deadlier than previous strains, is more transmissible.

What else are we supposed to do if the pandemic will be extended through 2022 with lockdowns, closures, cancellations and delays? Especially with the new strain and new variant?

The theatres vs. streaming civil war will add fuel to the fire because of monetary reasons. Not to mention Christopher Nolan and Denis Villeneuve are being crybabies about it because WB and HBO Max are doing simultaneous releases for their tentpole films. And vaccines will never work, and it's all because the virus has ears.
