There is NO evidence whatsoever COVID-19 originated from bat soup.

bats are a high probability, they have a much better immune systems  than us making the virus work harder and adapt mutate, humans however have a weaker immune system,  wether its  be direct or secondary though another animal eating something containing bat  poop, which is then infected and consumed by humans who knows, it's Nature or as some say Gods will, maybe the conspiracy theorists will say State induced or maybe its those corporate  Bog Roll sellers.

 

on the whole not too bothered about it.

Trump's been trying to get the US exclusive access to a German developed coronavirus vaccine.

 

Germany tries to stop U.S. from luring away firm seeking coronavirus vaccine

 

Trump offers 'large sums' for exclusive access to coronavirus vaccine

The rising US death toll is of no concern for Trump.  The only index he's interested in is the Dow Jones.

I'm sure he sees fat profits, and hence lots of tax revenue for the US government, from charging the rest of the world US style prices for the vaccine.

Do you think when the dust has settled we'll see a universal income put into place?

What is happening in the evolution of viruses? HIV overthrew the orthodoxy of immunology .eg antibodies conferring immunity.

Apparently having  Covid19 and recovering doesn't give you immunity.

That means viral infection just goes on and on-never ending .

I doubt it, he’s only interested in lining his own pocket.

HIV did nothing of the sort.

 

Currently, no one knows if Covid-19 infection confers immunity for a period or not. Infection with some viruses do, plenty do not.

I love the 'apparently' bit - apparently, it came from outer space or was caused by 5G.

 

Sorry, but we don't have enough evidence yet.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said emergency powers would be passed into law this week.

Asked if the laws could involve police or army personnel on the streets, closing borders or arresting people who refuse to stay in quarantine, he confirmed it could.

"We are going to take the powers to make sure that we can quarantine people if they are a risk to public health," he said.

"I doubt we will need to use it very much because people are being very responsible and people need to be responsible."

 

How are they going to enforce this when the police don't even bother to turn up for certain crimes due to being undermanned and what are they going to do with the people they arrest?

 
 
 
 
 
 

Had been wondering about this with the potential new "emergency" legislation just announced.

Prevention measures, caution and  isolation are all well and good up to a point,....but police and military apprehension seems just Draconian.

It's a serious pandemic that needs to be lived through and, if it can be, controlled, but the Governments and authorities(and Media) DO seem to be making more of a Mountain out of it.

 

Sure it is NOT a Mole hill, but these same Government's/authorities, certainly ours in the UK, could have spent some more of their time and OUR money in years gone by.....in building hospitals, care homes, PROVIDING Beds for ill and sick and needy people, because they are ill and sick and needy....or, in case a VIRUS  Outbreak or an emergency comes along some day, that they are not prepared for and able to cope with......but they Politically and personally chose NOT TO....and they have Failed now that the time has come. Asking Car manufacturers,J.C.B.!, etc,etc, to manufacture more Ventilators A.S.A.P.  I ask you!!

 

Yes, they will, sadly and urgently BE Needed, but, WHY were there NOT enough of them in the first place?.....and so it goes on...Unchallenged. NOT IN MY NAME.
