    My understanding is this a new vaccine that instructs the body's muscle cells to replicated key pieces of the virus but without the genetic payload it carries. Maybe parts of the Spike Protein or other parts of it. The body will then create antibodies that attack these pieces which also attack the same parts of the virus. At some point the body may produce full antibodies that attack the whole virus instead of all kinds of small ones, but this would happen after encountering the regular Sars-Cov-2 and being infected, though the virus will be slowed down by the antibodies attacking parts of it. But fair point, maybe such a person will briefly be an asymptomatic spreader during an unknown time window. However if the concern is for travel and everyone boarding has this vaccine, it might work.

    Well, I don't think these are scenes of constant chaos and if there is a ward of Covid19 patients, I doubt their accessible to the curious public walking by. So, I will say I do see a failure of reporting to convey what is happening. It's like the Covid19 ward exists in a big black box somewhere out of site so people don't believe it. We see trucks backing up and an interview with a doctor outside. Also, I don't think these spikes are happening everywhere at once. As for my area, I was at a medical center recently for a CT for unrelated issue recently. There is a Covid19 alert, but I didn't see a waiting room full of deathly ill Covid patients or anything. Does this mean it's not happening here or the Covid patients are away from the public area because they're contagious? They do have a helicopter so I don't know if they move the worst cases over to Mobile AL across the bay from where I live. Oh well, I'm just a lay person here and the mask thing doesn't bother me if it slows the spread of this new virus. It seems like a thing where it's lethality is usually low, but I just wonder if the spikes come from the environment it's in such as high rise buildings or those outbreaks meat plants with people working shoulder to shoulder. I think if NYC and Houston and if this virus can hang around in high rise building elevators waiting to be filled up with people. I'm also curious about how this plays out in other countries like Japan posted above. I think Germany also tends to favor window ventilation

    Well, I've had to wear PPE in my job and didn't feel I was being unreasonably controlled or muzzled or something by my company or the customer site. I guess I don't get why people are so mad about mask wearing. I mean should I throw a fit and refuse to deliver when the customer requires me to wear extra gear which I don't think I even need? I'm a driver, why do I need a hardhat?

    In a slightly different way, I probably do have some comments on even the previous cases of Flu. I have often thought it absurd how American work culture seems to want people showing up to work sick and spreading the sickness in the office only staying home once they have a high fever and/or throwing up. So yeah, maybe they should be home 'social distancing'. My view depends on a lot of things though; the other side that we can't all be in hermetic isolation is also valid and hiding from germs probably has it's own consequences on the immune system. Trying to come up with an analogy here, but we can consider Sunlight. To much you get sunburns or potentially skin cancer or even just look like you're aging prematurely, yet it's understood some Sunlight exposure is beneficial so avoiding Sunshine is also bad ( I think work culture is another issue here keeping so many indoors all the time. What if during Covid we're low on Vitamin D? ) it's not an all or nothing issue. I have sometimes considered how other cultures respond to these things. Japan in particular has widely used masks for allergies, flu, and the common cold prior to Covid19. It looks like they are still experiencing a wide Covid19 infection case rate, but lower hospitalizations and deaths. I have wondered the masks are not 100% effective, but causing a lower viral load so they can more easily beat it. I think Japan also favors open air ventilation and less central air or heating ( I think this is the case in Germany to )

    Okay I'm seeing reports of El Paso now having trouble with the hospitalization and fatality load. Are they just a shitty hospital or is this an outlier? Or do I believe all these stories are staged theater? If I happened to live in El Paso and drove to this hospital would I see total chaos? Or is this kind of thing apart of the public facing side of the hospital? I mean the morgue or morgue overflow is probably setup out of sight of the public. Anyway the way it seems to me for now is mortality probably is going down for a variety of reasons. Maybe a significant amount of the most vulnerable have already died, but also over time our therapeutic treatments are getting better. I'm just concerned that high hospitalizations could overwhelm hospital capacity. Also, I do not think all hospitals everywhere I like this. It seems to spike regionally while other locations maybe be fine or have low hospitalizations.

    Dr. Judy Mikovits Sars1 work seems to have very little to do with this Novel Vaccine. https://theconversation.com/how-mrna-vaccines-from-pfizer-and-moderna-work-why-theyre-a-breakthrough-and-why-they-need-to-be-kept-so-cold-150238 How does mRNA vaccine work? Vaccines train the immune system to recognize the disease-causing part of a virus. Vaccines traditionally contain either weakened viruses or purified signature proteins of the virus. But an mRNA vaccine is different, because rather than having the viral protein injected, a person receives genetic material – mRNA – that encodes the viral protein. When these genetic instructions are injected into the upper arm, the muscle cells translate them to make the viral protein directly in the body.

    Why do people want to spread a very contagious illness regardless of the mortality rate? Isn't this a drag on the economy and medical staff who have to deal with the spikes in hospitalizations?

    Republican Governor of Utah declaring a state of emergency and mask mandate for the state. It might be that the risk of death has gone down from the virus alone, but sudden surges in hospitilization are going to put stress on the system. https://www.foxnews.com/us/utah-governor-orders-statewide-mask-mandates-other-coronavirus-restrictions

    Well, I don't have much more to add except to say some of this probably is over reaction or not finding a balance between the expected Covid patients and still dealing with the more typical medical care.

    Well, I thought part of the idea to flatten the curve was to not overwhelm hospitals. Not that all of them are overwhelmed, but there seems to be regional spikes in hospitalizations. If Covid hospitalization come in at a managable rate then the regular surgeries or procedures and go back to normal. When I say long term, I refere to stories I've heard of people months after 'recovery' still getting winded from short walks or stairs. When looking at the scarring or whatever the issue is, it's evaluated as being likely a long term problem.

    I'm a little concerned that Trump seems eager to sell weapons and where those could wind up. But otherwise, credit for not escalating current conflicts or starting new ones.

    Is it just about the deaths? Aren't there spikes in hospitalizations? Why overburden the health system and medical staff if it can be avoided? Also previously healthy people that pull out of it but with long term lung damage?
