They are BIG and STRONG when they're in a group. Pathetic and scared when the police get them individually.

If he is not careful, he will lose control over the plant inside China when the CCP decides his free ride is over.

@BB. What?

So Pompeo is working his way down Trump's final list, including auctioning off the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and you reckon there is something below Cuba?

HOCl Hypochlorous acid is a far more effective anti-microbial/viral than bleach.

Gaijinland quote: “I stopped wearing a mask because it’s so uncomfortable and apparently doesn’t do anything to protect against covid.”

This is wrong on so many levels that I do not know where to start. Where do you get your ‘scientific’ information from?

Desert Tortoise, do you not mean 2019?

I have heard the Italy outbreak version, but there is a large Chinese community there involved in the clothing trade, apparently. Chicken or egg?

To my mind this is a bat virus that has has been artificially tweaked, and probably escaped somehow (probably not intentionally, but that in itself is a scary thought) into the community, through other wildlife. The Brit, Connor Reed who had it back in November 2019 in Wuhan, said that his cat had the same thing and died of it.

I suspect the Chinese are foot-dragging because they already know how it started, and to them there is no benefit to allowing the world to discover the true facts.

SARS, MERS, WURS, simple.

Slickdrifter, your 12:07 pm post above brought tears to my eyes. "I don't even want to read the article."

Thank you for your obviously painful honesty in deciding which way to walk. A really tough time for all.

Troy, that was the Pfizer vaccine the good Miami doctor took, not this Moderna one under discussion.

Yes, allow millions of volunteers, at their own responsibility, to take it first, during this lo.o.o.o.ng interlude.

Why not? That would save two birds with one shot.

Maybe Trump is holding on to claim ‘his’ Nobel Prize and get the last laugh on China et al. Or maybe he’s still got a button to press.

There is a third way. A smooth transition.

These people are special to Trump as long as they express love and warmth to him, something he doesn't normally get, and he reflects it back to them.

Saddam Hussein was like that, but at the smallest suspicion of disloyalty, he could turn on his supporters with super coldness and disdain.

I agree with presto 345. They are afraid because they are hiding something.

Non-cooperation is the name of the game.

the WHO can speak for the CCP, but not against them.

PS If you didn't read the article, he was confirmed to have had the virus.

Quote: Day 52: "A notification from the hospital informs me that I was infected with the Wuhan coronavirus. I suppose I should be pleased that I can’t catch it again — I’m immune now."

Remember the Brit, Connor Reed, who caught it in Wuhan in November 2019?

Anyhow, I think hospitals are probably doing their best, and of not, perhaps there should be special-budget designated hospitals for vaccinations.

Or, majority US and world view: Trump is wrong. The election results are valid. MSM and multiple agencies looked at both sides of the issue out of an abundance of caution, just to be sure.

Take your pick.

There you go. Much easier to remember by place name. Everyone is doing it. The 'UK version' is where they spotted it. The 'South African' variant is where it was spotted. And no-one is whining about the nomenclature.

And China is where it started, even if the WHO proposes a totally unrelated and unmemorable name for it.

The 7th corona virus, so it could have been Covid-7. It wiped out 2020, so Covid-20 might have been possible. I'll follow SARS and MERS though, and stick with WURS, thank you.

Really neat.

I used to live at the foot of Rokko. It was much cooler up top in summer, but pretty damn cold at this time of year, I should imagine. A nice place for a drive and some fresh air.

If no-one speaks out this kind of thing will continue. There is no justifying actions like this. Morally wrong, however anyone may try to justify it.
