Re: COVID-19

@Bankai: Yes, I am leaning towards that perspective. Are there counterpoints or data that shows the other side? I would be interested in learning more about them. No one wants more people to die, but even just the cancelling of medical services and early screening feel like they will cause a lot of ...

Re: COVID-19

Has anyone been keeping track of how the virus is mutating? I recall we already have at least one severe and one less severe strain. The spanish flu ended not from any human action but from the virus mutating to a less lethal version and people living with it. Anyone know how long it took before tha...

Re: COVID-19

John Yewdell from NIH was on the TWiV podcast discussing the basic immunology of Covid-19. Highly recommended. In it he spends a good bit of time discussing the innate and adaptive immune response and the importance of the microbiome in calibrating those responses. It may be a good time to think ab...

Re: COVID-19

I am seeing more articles talk about or at least mention Viral Load. I think it needs to be looked into more then it is.

Re: Business ideas for the upcoming depression?

This is an interesting question I have thought about it in the past. I don't think there is anything that completely disassociates time spent with money earned, but you can probably minimize it. Opening a businss and regulating yourself to managing the employees/contractors is one way. Things like U...

Re: What is going on with Joe Biden? (losing his mind?)

Hillary's loss was MUCH more due to the strategy problems you mentioned then misogeny and russian intereference. That and there was a LOT of hatred for her in the midwest, rightfully or due to republican propaganda. Biden does not have that problem currently at least. How exactly is Sanders handing ...

Re: What is going on with Joe Biden? (losing his mind?)

I agree with most of what Jacob said, apart from the point about a vote for Biden being a vote against Sanders. While true for a segment of the democratic party (and certainly for most of the media), the polls show people are voting for Biden due to electiibiliy. Polls found Sanders as the most popu...

Re: What is going on with Joe Biden? (losing his mind?)

No offense Jacob, but you yourself just sounded like a low-information voter. Anyone paying attention to the democratic race will know that BIden has had these issues since the beginning and that it grew worse throughout the race. This is not an out of context example, even in just the last few week...

Re: COVID-19

An interesting question was asked in the other group I am part of, does viral load affect the severity of this virus? Has there been any information on this, even anecdotally? Influenza severity, for example, has been shown to be affected by viral load. I don't think much can be done to prevent the ...

Side-gigs in a post COVID world

The worst has passed and life has returned to some semblance of normalcy. The "shelter in place" orders are gone, non-esssential businesses are open, and the quarantines are no longer in place. The economy, however. has taken a huge hit with many people having lost their jobs. The United S...

Latest information on transmission. Three hours in the air is not good.

Re: COVID-19

Do we know anything more about coronavirus and surface tempature? My understanding is that cooking will likely kill it, but do we know at what tempature and how long it takes? Also relevant if you are ordering delivery, the virus could be killed after cooking, but if it can survive a "hot"...

CDC has updated their recommendations. It looks like they are admitting that they can not control the spread and to prepare for a lot of people to get infected. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/03/09/many-americans-will-be-exposed-to-coronavirus-through-2021-cdc-says.html?fbclid=IwAR2U-3YtAYsxeZN51jpEp...

No, I don't know and I'm having trouble finding the original paper. At least from images I've seen it appears most in Chinese wear the surgical masks but it is my understanding that these aren't sufficient. Yes, that was my understanding as well. The footage was from before it was declared an emerg...

Re: COVID-19

@Den18- The authors of the paper concluded that they think it could travel in an enclosed space like a building with air conditioning. So it seems like as long as there is air movement, the virus can travel over a relatively extended (30 min) period of time. They did conclude that it was not only i...

Re: COVID-19

Lab finds that virus can travel further than safe distance advised by health agencies and can stay in air for up to 30 min. https://www.scmp.com/news/china/science/article/3074351/coronavirus-can-travel-twice-far-official-safe-distance-and-stay https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49640989198_9982d6...
