I have a confession to make as a retired virology researcher. It has taken me more than a year to “catch up” to the science of covid-19. The speed today in making progress in scientific knowledge in this field is dizzying to say the least.
And the mainstream media is about at helpful as a farm full of headless chickens with their attempts to “educate” the public with minute to minute often conflicting announcements on every aspect. And government authorities aren’t much better at doing this job.
It’s obvious that covid itself is in charge due to its ability to mutate into more infectious and deadly forms. This is not a new phenomenon. This is how infectious organisms work. The role of these processes is now showing itself with breakthrough infections in vaccinated people. Some vaccines are better than others. Consider the history of annual flu shots. Some years are more effective than others. Same phenomena.
Vaccination is the only proven medical technology to fight viruses. We have eradicated smallpox and are close to eradicating polio.
So I am pleading with everyone to get vaccinated for covid. It’s the only way we can control this pandemic worldwide.
