    Can't we just find a Dracenstein variant and be done with humanity?

    "Deltacron" discovered in Cyprus. When two different strains of a virus infect the same host, they can exchange genetic material to generate a new strain. This combo may have already developed independently in the US, given the high prevalence of both delta and omicron in December.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/08/cypr...and-delta.html
    A researcher in Cyprus has discovered a strain of the coronavirus that combines the delta and omicron variant, Bloomberg News reported on Saturday.

    Leondios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, called the strain “deltacron,” because of its omicron-like genetic signatures within the delta genomes, Bloomberg said.

    So far, Kostrikis and his team have found 25 cases of the virus, according to the report. It’s still too early to tell whether there are more cases of the strain or what impacts it could have.

    Daily COVID cases in the US are more than double the peak level reached in early 2021, but deaths are still far below the 2021 peak.

    If you haven't seen this, it's good history: Love the pics from the pamphlet published by a doctor who turned out to have been vaccinated!

    And I wish we'd do the same here, but it will never happen. This column got support and flak, with some people arguing we don't tell smokers or people with other unhealthy lifestyle habits to go to the back of the line. As a matter of fact, that's exactly what we're doing - if they are vaccinated and can't medical help for a cardiac issue because resources are now diverted to the unvaccinated. We are giving fools the king's food.

    Thanks. It doesn't come out nearly so verbose on here after all.

    Booster time frame dropped from 6 months to 5 months for Pfizer:

    https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2...r-Booster.html
    Today, CDC is updating our recommendation for when many people can receive a booster shot, shortening the interval from 6 months to 5 months for people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. This means that people can now receive an mRNA booster shot 5 months after completing their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series. The booster interval recommendation for people who received the J&J vaccine (2 months) or the Moderna vaccine (6 months), has not changed.

    There's little left to say about her. Some day, a young girl from Kansas with a bucket of water will ask her for an autograph.
