Masks cause Oxygen deprivation and permanent Neurological damage, especially in the developing brains of children.

I don't think its that confusing. The public won't see the members thread and members will be sure to post to the correct thread. I don't see masks as a medical treatment. I realize that some find masks a comforting sign of safety and others find them a useless authoritarian tool. I thought the mask opinion more of a general public information post.
The public comments don't get many posts and I thought it might invite public comment.

If masks really worked at stopping or even slowing respiratory illness, why weren't they used before Covid to minimize viral transmission?  

The airways are already filling up with public announcement messages urging everyone to get a Flu vaccine early this year because it's predicted to be another bad flu season.  Why, aren't masks and social distancing going to keep us safe?  

I've seen articles saying that we will still need to wear masks even after Covid vaccines become available, sometime in 2021.  Will that help a vaccine stop Covid from spreading?  

I don't think masks, social distancing, or vaccines will prevent at risk groups from ending up in ICU.  

Covid can be fatal and we must do something to protect the vulnerable.  Here's a suggestion that we should look at other factors, like diet to stay healthy.  


Now's the time to get healthy, urges ICU physician

Quote:Dr. Kyeremanteng was not the first ICU physician in the world to notice a disturbing trend: those with obesity, diabetes, hypertension, high blood glucose, insulin resistance and other markers of poor metabolic health have much higher risks of serious Covid-19 complications and ICU admissions.

Discovering the power of the low-carb diet to improve metabolic health has also led Dr. Kyeremanteng to start questioning the nutrition that is given to patients in the ICU. It is usually fed continuously through intravenous lines or feeding tubes. It is often very high in glucose and given non-stop, 24-hours-a-day.

I like that Doc and he's brave to be bringing up that small problem with hospital care, glucose.  My wife had been on a high fat, low carb diet and been steadily losing weight.  In a three day stay in ICU she gained 15 pounds back.  It was a mystery to us because she only had a cup of soup so it wasn't the hospital food.  Well, now I figure a good reason for masks might be to keep us from snacking so much.

Yes it is obvious that any test would need confirmation, at least repeating same test, but two distinct variants is what they found him infected with in succession, which makes sense in a virus that has the volume of replication needed for the ability to mutate successfully.

I think on an individual basis, one could catch it any number of ways, with or without a mask.

But I think it minimizes one of the most common ways to get it. Me spitting on someone else while speaking and even breathing.

The mask assumes the wearer is positive...

Jebus, welcome.

FYI birdie returned in spring from South America, made stories and families and left before fall.

He was 100% wild. Nested in The Tree. Asked for help with a red tail hawk once, but we are not friends. Just neighbors...

Thought it was cool and couldn't wait to share with you.

Cheers.

HHD, that is awesome. I remember the videos you made. Your kindness made an impression.

Code I agree, the rate is very low and time will show if some sort of antibody persistance is happening.
As the virus mutates through the population of hosts, lets hope it's success is passive.

Quote:If we take the intermediate death toll estimate—307,000 as of October 12—and consider that it represents 7 months of deaths, we must compare those 307,000 deaths in 7 months to 45,000 flu deaths annually on average. The upshot—2020 is 12 *years* of flu deaths in 12 *months*.

Hi all, it's been a tough week. I asked admin last week and said this was ok but I got lost in it all and didn't get to check back. My mom who taught me everything about kindness, love and respect for all things from the smallest to the grandest has passed away. It wasn't covid. Complications from emergency surgery. She died in the ICU... her heart stopped. My niece started a go fund me. We are trying to get her back to NY she has a burial plot there. It's been tough with restrictions, taking care of my dad and the cemetary is backed up and now hotspot shutdowns in the boroughs/queens. I understand things are not easy so no pressure..I just love my mom. Thank you all and be well... not sure when I will be around again.

Earthy, I love what your mom gave you, too.

As you know, this is a good place for old friends.

Come in often, now, especially.

Stay strong, warrior.

Data analysis identifies the 'mother' of all SARS-CoV-2 genomes

[Image: 2-sarscov2covi.jpg]


Quote:Altogether, they have identified seven major evolutionary lineages that arose after the pandemic began, some of which arose in Europe and North America after the genesis of the ancestral lineages in China.
"Asian strains founded the whole pandemic," said Kumar. "But over time, it is the sub-strain containing the epsilon mutation, that may have occurred outside of China (first observed in the middle east and Europe), is infecting Asia much more."
Their mutational-based analyses also established that North American coronaviruses harbor very different genome signatures than those prevalent in Europe and Asia.

Pitt Researchers Discover Llama ‘Nanobodies’ Are Powerful New Coronavirus Treatment

The researchers used a llama they have dubbed Wally.

Quote:Researchers say they immunized Wally “with a piece of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.” About two months later, they say Wally’s immune system produced these mature nanobodies against the virus.

The researchers then worked to identify the nanobodies in Wally’s blood that most strongly bind to SARS-CoV-2.

Danish Covid-19 mink variant could spark new pandemic, scientists warn

Mutations in mink herds and wildlife such as weasels, badgers, ferrets may pose risk to human health and vaccine development

Quote:“The worst-case scenario is that we would start off a new pandemic in Denmark. There’s a risk that this mutated virus is so different from the others that we’d have to put new things in a vaccine and therefore [the mutation] would slam us all in the whole world back to the start,” said Prof Kåre Mølbak, vaccine expert and director of infectious diseases at Denmark’s State Serum Institute (SSI).

I was unable to conclude, by the 17 million sacrificed mink article, that mink had infected human and not human infected mink... I surmised that the 5 mink infected were infected by one of the dozen humans infected...

It would seem such measures to control certain strains for future vaccine marketing would be futile.
