I totally agree with everything you've pointed out here gaffo.gaffo wrote: ↑Sat May 09, 2020 4:18 am lets look toward the future with science.
Corona's RNA is more complex than the Flues, but it is also more stable, so when we get a vaccine in 2 yrs it will work for future version of corona.
HOWEVER, that does not mean immunity for far future, just because the viri will not mutate as fast as the flue and make the vaccien useless.
the vaccine may be useless in and of itself even if the viri's RNA is stable.
look at Rabies, i had to be vacinated agianst this due to a cat bite - 12 shot in my face. 5 yrs ago, good for only 3 yrs, so if bit today by a rabid animal without re-vactination i would die.
same may be true ot the corona, in which case we will all have to re-vacineated every few years for many decades hence.
- we do not know enough about corona yet to know if it might be like rabies, but i may be like it and require repeated vacinations.
The really stark reality is staring us point blank between the eyes, and that is that this new novel virus is out there now - it's probably going to keep mutating - making it more and more difficult to contain - all vaccine attemps will just prove useless in the long run - and will be like bandaids upon a gushing gaping wound - In reality, the quaranteen / lockdown nonsense is not the answer - it's just putting off the inevitable - which realistically means that every living one of us is going to experience the effects from this virus eventually.
And so even if we do find a way of adapting to it just like we have done with past viruses and deadly diseases - does that mean it will stop there - I doubt it - another one will come along soon enough - that could even be a lot more deadly. And it's not just the virus that will cause problems, the impact will spread even wider striking at the very heart of how we make a living for ourselves - the economic knock-on effects will probably kill even more people that we dare to imagine.
It's not looking good for humanity to be honest - but it's probably for the best in that nature in her wisdom would be like any other sick body. There would be an automatic healing process set into motion in order to rid itself of any pollutions and poisons.
Doesn't look too good for the human immune system to be fair. The fight for survival may well become just too great for it to bare as the planet becomes more and more polluted by man made toxins....It seems that viruses are opportunists and a way to restore natures natural balance, who really knows for sure the ways of nature, I'm just guessing...and waffling on...
