    Small offtopic comment: you use JPG format for photos. For charts containing few colors and sharp edges you use PNG, better quality that way.


    P.S. Next time I'm here, I'll make a respectful post about this silly feud, not for PhaelixWW's case but for others.

    Seems we will pass 32 M mark of reported cases any minute now.
    I also noticed that India and the world seemed to have gone down a tiny bit in reported cases the last couple of days.

    Unfortunately, it seems the explanation is that testing has slightly decreased in India, while the positive rate has gone up a bit, so it's due to a lack of testing (which could be temporary due to the monsoon).

    Man, Fauci seems like he's getting pretty fed up with idiots like Rand Paul constantly lying and intentionally misconstruing data for political purposes.

    Seriously, fuck Rand Paul.
    One thing - he should have been pissed, publicly, long time ago. But better late than never.

    Don’t worry India is opening all the way soon. Totally won’t cause any issues.

    Hmm to be honest: I have heard the "cross immune response" argument before and I agree that it might explain the high %age of asymptomatic/mild cases.
    We do not have antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, so our immune system cannot prevent an infection altogether but our T-Cells recognize infected cells and kill them off. Depending on the quality of said recognition, the Virus may not get much further than an initial foothold.

    IIRC, this has been demonstrated in a study using old blood samples from pre-C19 years.

    Nevertheless, him basically saying "measures do not matter" is flat out wrong. Tons of countries have demonstrated that they do make a difference.

    Watching you squirm like this sure is fun.

    Sure but when he all had dial-up, I doubt many people would have liked large png images.

    Umm, speaking of covid vaccine research and development: "Study of over 50,000 volunteers in China shows Coronavac safety"

    resumo em 3 tópicos
    Pesquisa com 50.027 voluntários na China demonstra que a vacina Coronavac não apresentou reações adversas significativas
    Entre as pessoas com mais de 60 anos (422 voluntários), os resultados apontaram 97% de eficácia
    No Brasil a vacina foi aplicada em quase 5,6 mil voluntários sem nenhum registro de reação adversa grave

    (english) Instituto Butantan conducts clinical trials of the coronavirus vaccine in phase 3 in Brazil, carried out on almost 6,000 volunteers.
    Research with 50,027 volunteers in China shows that the Coronavac vaccine did not show significant adverse reactions
    Among people over 60 (422 volunteers), the results showed 97% effectiveness
    In Brazil, the vaccine was applied to almost 5,600 volunteers with no record of serious adverse reaction
    https://www.saopaulo.sp.gov.br/notic...-da-coronavac/

    So, it seems that we have a success. Good news is, China is willing to supply MASSIVE amounts of doses to Africa/Asia/Latin America (where i live, yay). Bad news is... well, i dont see the Chinese being so keen on giving the vaccine to the US.
    Forgive my english, as i'm not a native speaker

    Given the quality of the last lot of medical equipment China shipped out early in the pandemic and the CCP's propensity to fudge any and all numbers, I'd be very dubious about taking anything out of China until it was independently verified.

    Hes not just anti-mask mandate. Hes anti-doing anything to stop the pandemic! He left it up to the counties to do something as the cases spiked. He then put in a "stay at home" mandate that amount to literally nothing. As much as I hate to say it, our state hasn't really ever shut down. Most of the counties did a poor mandate themselves that also amounted to nothing. Only St Louis and Kansas City really took it seriously. Even as other hot spots began to emerge.

    I hate to say it, but anytime these people who are so anti-mask and anti-lockdown get sick, it just makes them grow more against any mandates when they get over it. Then their like "See! Its nothing. Now I know we can ignore it for sure!"

    You two are just embroiled in a pointless argument that isn't actually proving or disproving anything.

    "Nu uh, you needs to not exclude so much!" "Nu-uh, your date was 2 days out"

    What a joke.

    On a practical note, I can't imagine Americans would take too kindly to getting Chinese vaccines. It just would not happen.

    I can't imagine anyone from the West would take kindly to shoddy and shady Chinese vaccines. If they engineered their COVID-19 numbers, you can bet they also would engineer data for this too to make it look far more reliable than it might actually be.

    Aye, I trust a Chinese made vaccine about as far as I could throw your average Chinese citizen.

    If it passes independent reviews and verified data shows it works, why not?

    I mean, not everyone is a rampant xenophobe. China is fucked up in a lotta ways, but I mean, are we gonna start throwing away everything made in China?
