COVID-19 coronavirus

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Pfizer claims to have a vaccine that is 90% effective. We’ll see.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

The same over here at Biontech, their partner company in Germany ... their currently running study looks very promising
and an application for drug approval in the US is envisaged for the coming weeks, but it is very unlikely that vaccinations
are available before spring next year.

Yes, spring next year strikes me as wildly optimistic. I just got this in my email from Johns Hopkins: https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/11/11/pfizer-v ... 37eaf299d9

I think the first period of not being able to go anywhere in the evening (can't call it lockdown as it's not) exhausted all the good films to watch

Have just taken a care parcel (slippers, jim jams, magazines, phone charger, snacks) to the wife of an elderly neighbour who's in hospital in Veszprem with a blood clot on the brain.
Really impressed with the setup at the door to take packages for patients seeing as it's not allowed to visit anyone right now. 3 nurses in full head to toe PPE & they even squirted my hands with stuff before I left. Which was nice :)
All very efficient, but a lot of really worried looking people there realising they can't visit their rellies.
Cheers.
