The latest news is that in the US, 124 million doses have been given. This is de facto testing, not counting the testing done before EUA was given. And not counting doses given in other countries.
I was there, you know.

Orange groves, far as the eye could see.
+30 to dodge.

A rather good take this: https://www.brighteon.com/d5e8a434-2d8c-...82adc6a4f9
I'm much more of a visual learner.  Just audio tends to put me to sleep.  Does he say what his sources are for the info he gives?  Are they verifiable?

Here's something about the variants (mutations) from https://swprs.org/coronavirus-mutations-update/:

Updated: March 10, 2021

 A brief update on the new coronavirus mutations, including the ‘British’, ‘South African’ and ‘Brazilian’ variants (i.e. N501Y.V1-V3), and evidence of their properties:
  1. There is clear evidence that the new variants are currently about 50% more transmissible, although suspected higher viral loads have not been confirmed. However, this relative advantage in transmissibility may decrease over time, as more people get infected.
  2. New coronavirus variants do not produce any different symptoms, and the evidence that they might be more virulent or lethal remains rather weak. In general, covid may be more severe in winter than in spring and summer (e.g. due to lower vitamin D levels).
  3. There is currently no evidence that new variants preferentially infect children.
  4. There is also no evidence that measures such as lockdowns or face masks work any better or any worse against new variants. Many places affected by new variants have seen a decrease in cases (e.g. Denmark, Portugal, the Netherlands, South Africa and the UK).
  5. There is some evidence of partial immune evasion by new variants, which is well known from influenza viruses and from other coronaviruses, and which may enable reinfections – with or without symptoms – in some people, and first infections in more people.
  6. There is also clear evidence that some of the current vaccines are less protective against some of the new variants. These vaccines may require regular updates or boosters.
  7. But there is no evidence that early and prophylactic treatment is any less effective against new variants, as it targets virus replication, cell entry, or disease progression.

And your point is.......
My point is that you are missing the point.

Oy vey!  What I'm missing is whatever point you are trying to make in that post.

Quote:How Worried Should We Be About the New Variants?


Dr Mike Yeadon is back! Today we’re publishing an original piece original piece he has co-authored with a colleague from PANDA (Pandemics – Data and Analytics), a multidisciplinary group seeking to inform policy responses to the pandemic. Its scientific advisory board includes the three signatories of the Great Barrington Declaration. Dr Yeadon, along with Marc Girardot, looks at the new variants and asks: Are they likely to evade our existing immune responses, whether that immunity was acquired via infection or vaccination? Their conclusion is that the recent downward trends in cases and hospitalisations across the globe indicate that the virus has probably not mutated in a way that makes it much more dangerous and that a healthy immune system is very capable of dealing with these new forms of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Here’s an extract:



    SARS-CoV-2 is a large virus with approximately 30,000 RNA bases (10,000 amino acids). Currently, the greatest difference between any ‘mutant variant’ and the original Wuhan sequence is limited to 26 nucleotide mutations. The genomic diversity of SARS-CoV-2 in circulation on different continents is fairly uniform. We know that the mutation rate in SARS-CoV-2 is slower than other RNA viruses because it benefits from a proofreading enzyme which limits potentially lethal copying errors. To date, these mutations have caused changes in less than 0.3% of the entire virus sequence. All variants are therefore currently 99.7% similar to the original Wuhan viral sequence.



    To date, no robust scientific evidence proves that any of the variants identified are more transmissible or deadly than the original. By definition, variants are clinically identical. Once there is a clinical difference then a new ‘strain’ of virus has emerged. Prior knowledge of viral mutation shows they usually evolve to become less deadly and more transmissible. This optimises their chance of spreading, as dead hosts tend not to spread viruses, and very ill hosts have reduced mobility and thus limit contact with others.



This is very well-researched piece that deals with one of the main arguments for perpetuating the lockdown. Worth reading in full. Worth reading in full.



Stop Press: Cases and hospitalisations continue to plunge in Florida, in spite of the state having the largest number of confirmed cases of the B117 variant of any US state. The Daily Mail has more https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...riant.html.


That very last sentence is quite interesting!

+10 to dodge. Sorry, but you appear to be about two levels of experience below ChairmanJoe.

Could it have to do with the fact that all current vaccines are 100% against hospitalization?
