Did the virus originate in a lab? Maybe.I don't believe for one second that the spread of this disease is either accidental or unintentional. It seems strangely coincidental with multiple countries collaborating to become trade independent from one particular country, where admittedly, the virus originated, as did every flu pandemic since the Spanish flu. Coincidence? I think not.
Earlier this week I was reading a 2015 study (in a legit medical journal) from the Wuhan Institute of Virology where they were intentionaly synthesizing and mutating SARS-Cov virii for cross-species transmission and higher infection rate (supposedly to study ways to prevent said transmission).Did the virus originate in a lab? Maybe.
Did China try to cover it up? Unquestionably.
Was the release deliberate? Highly unlikely.
I have more trouble with the MORON that walks up behind me in Home Depot with his mask at half-mast like a chin strap and stands close enough for me to smell his bad breath from rotten teeth. I nearly elbowed him when I reached to get my wallet out of my back pocket before I realized someone was standing that close. What happened to 6' feet social distancing? He was nearly 6' tall and grey haired, so he should be well aware of how far he can fall without hitting his head on me by now. He had a mask, so I'm pretty sure he knew why it was required. I don't like folks standing as close as he was WITHOUT the risk of contagion. Makes me feel they're moving in to pick my pockets or something. It's times like that I wish I had a really BAD smelling fart stored up. You know, the kind that make dogs howl and possums smile. That'll teach space invaders to keep their distance when nothing else will.I have trouble walking through wallyworld wearing a mask,,
Can you share the reference? I would love to read it too.Earlier this week I was reading a 2015 study (in a legit medical journal) from the Wuhan Institute of Virology where they were intentionaly synthesizing and mutating SARS-Cov virii for cross-species transmission and higher infection rate (supposedly to study ways to prevent said transmission).
The safety protocols in those labs leave a lot to be desired.
Seems like a recipe for some sort of disaster. Rather surprised it didn't happen sooner.
I THINK it was this one https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4797993/Can you share the reference? I would love to read it too.
I've worked in research labs. The safety protocols are good. Whether or not the weakest links (humans) follow them is another story.
My wife and a bunch of others got the Pfizer shots only one person out of the bunch said the second one was worse.somehow we were put on a "standby" list. Got a call last week that said there was an opening in a couple of days and could I fill it? Got the first shot...Pfizer....and never knew I had the shot. The wife got a call two days later and got hers the same day. Supposedly the second follow up shot has more side affects but we shall see in a couple of weeks.
Those shots react widely with different people. I was extremely worried about my wife after her second shot. She was almost catatonic when I came home. The Moderna shot kicked off the mother of all migraines in my wife.Friend got her second Moderna yesterday, no side effects so far. My second shot coming up Tuesday. No problem with first. Among the people I know personally that got the Pfizer vaccine, so far none saying they had a problem, including my 96 year old half sister.
When I was younger I got migraines at the drop of a hat as the expression goes. Pretty much anything would trigger one. Weather switches even. About the only good thing I can think of about old age is that they have subsided to rare minor headaches, but wouldn't be surprised if I have a reaction that it would involve a headache.Those shots react widely with different people.

Wife had never experienced a migraine before that so it scared the daylights out if her.
I got her to take some excedrin migraine. And after about an hour she started to perk up.
