    Is there going to be any post Covid anyway? Seems like it will be here forever.

    So what is the future gentlemen?

    What is going to be like in the years to come?
    Will everybody get the virus as the time goes by?
    Will it become dormant or it will mutate and will never end?

    What are your thoughts?

    I'm hungry. I can't decide if I should order something or eat what I have even though it's not exactly my favorite.
    As to what will happen with covid 19, if enough people get the vaccine then the virus will die out as a threat as it happened with other threats in the past. If not enough people get the vaccine, then we will have it for the rest of our lives.

    Mom has received her first SinoPharm shot this morning. She has just called, says that she's feeling fine, there's nothing even the spot where she got the jab ("Hey, they gave me some water!" :D ) So, that's good news. :)

    I got an automated phone call last week...

    It said it was a "red alert"... Those 75 and older could go someplace or other to get a shot, but it was first come first served because of limited supply and you had to have signed up in advance the day before this phone call...

    I'm guessing only those 75 year olds with a time machine were able to get vaccinated... At this rate Ohio will be dead in a year and a half.

    Ugh! Hopefully they realize what they did. For the people who are in some kind of a priority group, things seem to be going relatively smoothly here, for now. The vast majority of people aren't, though, and for us it's a complete mess.

    A quick search finds some info on the SinoPharm vaccine about a 50% effectiveness. Is that true?

    Nah... These are the same people that have been calling it a hoax for 10 months.

    Should be around 80, the Chinese themselves claim 79%, the UAE say that there it has turned out to be 86% efficient. One potentially good side of this vaccine is that it uses the entire virus, which may possibly, perhaps make it slightly more future-proof as the virus mutates (i.e. if one particular bit of the virus mutates, the immune system will still recognize it by its other bits).

    We'll see. The more you read (even from reputable sources), the less sure you are of a lot of things. Except that getting some vaccine is generally better than getting none.

    As soon as those hit the market people will mix them up with the regular ones... You know this, right?

    I'm tired of this coronavirus situation. I want it to end as soon as possible. Because of the pandemic, I lost my job because the company could not withstand this crisis and closed. I started looking for another job, but it was not easy to do because of the situation in the world. I found a part-time job, it's good that at least there is one. The situation with money was not the best. Until recently, I was thinking where I would get money for gifts to relatives, fortunately LINK REMOVED BY STAFF helped to earn. Also now there I can earn money for a living. I hope in 2021 the situation will be better.
