    To be honest, I'm sick of this kind of  scenario ..If any of what is described

    comes to pass:we will never be out of this damn pandemic- and all because some ar.. let a virus get out of the Lab.


    Just an aside. Tinkering about with deadly pathogens by "mad scientists" is taking place all over the world.However, I've  yet to find any written comments- emanating from the scientific community-

    desiring such "tinkering " to be banned.

    Hey Ho on we go.

    "Partly autobiographical ,mostly an explosive voiding rheum

    on the idiocies of contemporary science and culture. Mullis gives us 

    a piece of his magical mind".

    London Review of Books


    I bought it when it came out. I was interested in Mullis's ideas on the effectiveness of PCR in detecting  infection with HIV.

    I had my booster(Moderna) this morning.

    I enquired of the young women administering the vaccine,  "Do you aspirate the needle as part of the injection procedure"?

    She looked rather puzzled," I'll have to ask".

    She came back and said,"It's not necessary".

    I went ahead with the vaccination. I stuck my arm out and crossed my fingers.

    I think you made a good point about aspiration.

    Some good points you have made.


    Just a question for you. In your opinion,what is it that the authorities want to achieve by imposing vaccine passports and (possibly) compulsory vaccination?


    Apparently there has been one death today attributed to the Omicron Variant .

    I've put this link on the Forum  for the ethicists who have the patience 

    to read through it.

    For those people against "Compulsory Cov 19 Vaccination", the moral imperatives-in the article- supporting compulsion  are  what you will have  to engage with. The philosophy driving the proposition is the most repugnant 

    brand of Utilitarianism.  Utilitarianism is the last resort of scoundrels.


    I'm against compulsion.


    I attribute a greater degree of altruism  to people than the article credits people with.


    And good luck to everybody on the Forum, as you engage with the State :in the struggle to  have control over what medical interventions you may be compelled to undertake.


    Note: bodily autonomy trumps any obligations  to support the imperatives expressed  by government.


    Next ,it will be everybody has to give a kidney-or else!

    Or mandated vasectomy-aaarrrrg !


  6. This treatment looks promising.



    The pill is a Protease Inhibitor.


    A question for any Virologists contributing to this Thread. 


    Can what is known about antiretroviral medications;

    help in the discovery of  pharmaceutical for the  pre-symptoms treatment of Covid 19 ?

     If you can destroy the: Protease of a virus, stop it  getting into cells and making its Genome -you've got it  beat.

  7. quote from Wired


    Los Angeles and Chicago schools will require that all employees get vaccinated

    The Los Angeles and Chicago school districts announced that all educators and school staff will have to be fully vaccinated by October 15, a strong statement coming from the second- and third-largest districts in the country. In LA, employees will also be tested regularly, while in Chicago they’ll be tested weekly until the vaccine deadline. Both states are also mandating that everyone wear masks inside of schools. Leaders of the national teachers’ unions have said they favor vaccine mandates but that they need to be negotiated at the local level.

    Could this happen in the UK?

  8. To The_Daddy.

    I'd very much appreciate it if you could direct me to any scientific 

    evidence, that supports your scepticism as to the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines-thank you.


    I've dug out this link for you-which I think you will find interesting.




    My apology for the 404 error with the link. But I think you will be able to get to it through this link-fingers crossed. The link (Vac Hesitancy) is right at the bottom of the article.

    I do not necessarily agree with the points you have been making. But this kind of  language(BMJ) is an unfortunate polemic against any questioning of the experts.

    Tarring any questioning of the experts as "denalist","conspiracy" ,etc, is a polemic. The brandishing of ideology against any disagreement with them.


    We need to take a long hard and detailed look-marshalling all our intelligence and individual research- at what we are being told by the experts.



    Having two parallel reporting methods is unfortunate as it plays into the “What are they not telling us?” narrative of covid denialists, conspiracy theorists, and lockdown sceptics.4


  10. The vaccine probably activates your Debt Card and draws money out of you bank and pays it to Matt Hancock and his mates.

    That's what I'm telling my bank is the cause of my unauthorised overdraft. "It wasn't me governor. It was the vaccine".
