    Please forward to the Governors of Texas and Mississippi.

  • Gustavo says:

    Increase testing effort to confirm that the virus is (still) there.

    Stop testing when you think that everything is under control.

    Does that make sense?

  • John Borstlap says:

    The more is tested, the more positive cases. It does not necessarily mean that it is spreading more.

    • Gustavo says:

      The more is screened, the more variation.

      This is why we’ve got a “British” mutant.

      Mankind is doing a very thorough job in characterising new viruses.

      Wonder what the future holds?

  • Birchley Poundbottom says:

    There is no such thing as a “weak” case of Covid-19. It is a serious virus that can affect people of all ages. This misinformation could be as deadly as wearing but a single mask, or openly discussing the heresy of the immune system. Stay safe out there everyone.

    So, nothing to worry about, then. What’s the point of this post?

  • Greg Bottini says:

    Nobody ever learns….

  • Karl says:

    Artists like this can’t work remotely. Put them high up on the list to get vaccinated. I got my vaccine because one a month my job requires me to handle covid specimens. If that gets me an early vaccine then musicians and dancers should get them too.
