Read Post #63. I gave the scientific rationale for the naming. It is correct.

The key word is REDUCES. It does not eliminate it. As to South Florida, what I have read is that social distancing was only a "suggestion" to many people plus the return of cruise ship passengers and international travel from Europe through MIA brought positive cases.

Once the virus is in your body, you are infected and the disease will run it's course regardless of body temp.

And according to the Italians, after conducting 50+ autopsies, this virus is not respiratory at all. It is a circulatory thrombosis (clotting) virus that we should be treating with antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and antu-coagulants. No degree of ventilating the lungs will eliminate blood clots forming in the lungs. So who do we believe?

I remember when we used to blindly trust every word from any journeyman on TV. (well, many of us)

Thank goodness! NOW we trust every word written as opinion on TotV. Any difference?

Honestly, if you don't want to be rabidly frustrated, now is the time to pull out of this awkward and sometimes bleak discussion format. imho

The genetic studies tracing the virus I've posted show that most of the infections in USA came from Europe to New York City, and from New York City to the rest of USA. Not direct from China.
1, Shame all over you for stating that ANYBODY with a head and heart would believe that Dr. Fauci is Jesus returning to us. That is a very dishonest and denigrating put down which I would not expect from a "veteran" poster. You've seen enough crap in TotV to know that put downs reflect on YOU rather than the poster you're responding to.
2. The Asian source, I think, came from China, through Asia, and to our west coast. Now, "veteran", what kind of garbage will you spew out about me?

Like many of us, I listened to about 90% of all TV appearances this year of Dr. Fauci. Two problems: there is no finesse in bringing back early, ignorant statements a person makes before experiencing a difference that makes one change one's mind.

Second problem: However, I never heard him or Dr. Birks say that it was of "little concern to us". Do you recall roughly what date he said that on? I recorded all those appearances.

Injecting the antibody eliminates the need for a vaccine to do the work. More testing needs to be done but it is promising.

Bottom line, American genius and American business are running at top speed to eliminate the threat. Things are looking up!
Could you supply some links to support your claims? You can post links on this site, contrary to another post. I have done it. If you don't supply links, your comment is just a bunch of crap.

The news articles such as the one I have posted below tend to go against what you are saying:

Moderna’s early coronavirus vaccine results lack crucial data – BGR

Once again, could you please post some links to back up what you posted?
