    I can see that. But with the prevalence of Covid, the mild progression expected for <50yo and assuming good disclosure I could see people volunteering. Even if about 50% of the volunteers will...

    Well, I do have three FB accounts. One has no friends. The other two each have one (guess...). Other than that, uhm, is Disqus considered social media?

    No TDS here. I just recognize a bad president and administration when I see one.

    And yes, I am hopeful about the various serious vaccine projects out there, including those in the US. If the US...

    Well, I don't want to get this political but if it were a trial touted by Trump without sensible backing by science (yes, I am looking at you, hydroxychloroquine) then no. I voted yes just now but...

    Are these open to the public, I am rather interested.

    Isn't that somewhat comparable to Herpes? Over 50% is infected with it and never gets rid of it but "few" develop symptoms. Not sure about...

    Yes, being buff, or actually just rather big, is a requirement and in the books, it is indeed hard sometimes to be inconspicuous which he then has to deal with.

    Well, when I google for it I get...

    Even if we close up for three months, that does not "destroy" the "entire" economy. I prefer numbers, such as, it would lower GDP by x% in 2020, y% in 2019 etc.
