    6 out of the 5 EITs I know, know everything. I really need to hang out with more EITs.

    Cool, thanks for that, I feel like thatís an important distinction that more people should be informed about (aka we should stop comparing the disease to something nearly irrelevant).

    Thatís probably the most interesting thing about COVID I have heard in months.
    I don't believe anybody has been trying to compare them on some type of genetic level. They're simply using the flu as a comparative to how we might be dealing with this. They think it's likely that Rona will just be a common infection we deal with as a species going forward.

    I'm sure one of two things occurred:

    - We're in a higher being's petri dish and someone spilled stuff all over our place
    - Aliens pass by, sees that we're essentially cockroaches that talk, and don't want the 'rona too

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Are people still actually scared of this virus who aren’t obese or unhealthy as fuck? Even the death numbers from the USA who has the most disgusting population in terms of health aren’t doing that bad.

    Seems like a big joke now that we have more information. The media really blew this one up into a shit show, shitty deal we couldn’t finish that once in a century snow pack up in the mountains to this crap.

    This whole shit show is because healthy people can carry the virus and give it to unhealthy people. Plus the whole overwhelm hospital thing with unhealthy obese whales. Haven’t seen any Tiktok vids from ERs lately so things seem to be returning to normal.

    I am more scared of COVID now than I was say 3-4 weeks ago. The more we learn about the disease the more we realize it isn't like a cold or flu that you get over and are back to normal. It's very common to have issues past the time that your body has eliminated the actual virus. Partly this is because it is becoming clear that the virus messes with the signalling in your immune system. I would prefer to not have inflammation in my heart tissues, and perhaps scarring in that and other organs.

    This assumes you don't have really nasty acute problems as well.

    So no, it is not worth being casual about this at all.

    We are also learning(or learned months ago), this isn't going away with masks, quarantines, lockdowns, etc. So worrying about something that is pretty much inevitable is a waste of emotional bandwidth. By all means, anyone that is worried should just take reasonable precautions of wearing a mask and maintaining distance, maybe you'll get lucky and be one of the 10% that doesn't get it.

    You go from "this isn't going away" to "let's ignore it" with nothing in between. Your reasoning isn't sound.

    The idea is to chip at the R0 (masks, social distancing, lockdowns, quarantines, superior testing methods) as much as we can, and then chip at the severity as much as we can (antivirals, steroids, other treatments).

    If the virus arrived in February, we're likely halfway or more to a workable vaccine.

    Come on man you are not allowed to say stuff like that on the forum. Negative reps for days. Think of the .04%

    I think dying may be actually a better outcome now then being forever wrecked internally and live.

    Next few Olympics are going to be interesting to watch as previous WRs may stand for a while.

    If this has a potential to go around every 12 weeks or so, eventually you'll be the .04% in round 2 or 3.

    This is a 180 for you, isn't it? Did your account get high-jacked? I thought I recalled a post from you indicating you were sleeping in a different room due to a healthcare worker in the house, or something?

    I mean they went from a place of massive uncertainty to us understanding more and more about the disease.

    It would be illogical to not change your reaction as you understand things more.

    He isnít wrong in that, while this definitely isnít the flu and affects the body in different ways, that for the overwhelming majority of the population contracting a severe covid outcome is somewhere up there with getting hit by a bus. Especially when the segment of the population who are susceptible to severe outcomes is hilariously predictable.

    Bad shit can still happen to everyone, with very very low probabilities, but nothing about that is really new.
