    "Solutions", i.e. pie-in-the-sky wish list with arbitrary numbers:
    1. Stop gain-of-function research until it can be properly regulated. Any research facility should be isolated (not in a city like Wuhan with a population > 10 million people, this is ludicrous) and staff coming out of the facility should need to quarantine for 3 weeks before rejoining "society". If an outbreak occurs then that country gets trade and travel restricted for 6 months or longer.

    2. Outlaw mandatory vaccines, health passports, etc. None of this is going to do anything except for further hurt the economy and empower totalitarian leaders. Likely it's part of a scheme to roll out digital currencies anyway. Watch what happens in Europe which is the epicenter of this Build Back Better bullshit and the Klaus Schwab circus. It's no coincidence all of the more draconian policies are coming from those who were part of his World Economic Forum "junior leaders" program. Same with Tedros at the WHO, european central bankers, etc.

    Good luck everyone!
    I can't imagine having this bad of a word view. Good luck with all that!

    More importantly, we're all losing sight of the totalitarian leaders wanting to rollout untraceable, uncontrollable digital currency for some reason. That's why the entire world is doing this - not practical mitigations during a collective health crisis. It's about da bitcoin. JFC... dummies with brain worms.

    The rest of us were smart enough to either use the ignore function or just plain let it go because we understand that no one believes this shtick any more.

    Austin/Cono etc are not worth your time.

    Only on TGR, is the PRC, in a discussion on Covid, a protected entity. Wow.

    Back on topic, and based on this news, we will be getting jabbed for the rest of our lives.

    Pretty sure Small Pox was a respiratory illness pretty much eradicated by vaccines. If anyone thinks vaccines haven't GREATLY reduced the risk and carnage of those threats listed you are beyond hope..

    Flu is the closest thing (respiratory virus) and probably won't ever be eradicated.
    And the moron doubles down on the dumbfuckery.

    god damn, fucking street people in India look at you morons and say “what the fuck?”

    To date, only one infectious disease that affects humans has been eradicated.* In 1980, after decades of efforts by the World Health Organization, the World Health Assembly endorsed a statement declaring smallpox eradicated. Coordinated efforts rid the world of a disease that had once killed up to 35% of its victims and left others scarred or blind.

    https://www.historyofvaccines.org/co...se-eradication

    The point raised is stupid by virtue of it raising an issue for which there is an example of measure zero.

    Or maybe because virtually no diseases have ever been eradicated, we should just give up.

    Fucking stupid argument, fractional stack.

    I can see you are an expert on many things. My question for you is: Are you interested in buying some commemorative gold bullion coins? It's the currency totalitarian despots don't want you to know about! Own the libs with your purchase - PM Rontele for more info.

    Awesome. Consider this a pyrrhic victory for you. If total eradication is the only measure of success then you are probably correct. Most of us would consider vaccines to still be considered effective if they keep disease at bay.

    Who said eradication? Most vaccine preventable illnesses have not been eradicated. Only Smallpox. Potential for eradication is not the reason we have vaccines. But it is a good thing because then you don't need the vaccine anymore.

    Vaccines reduce transmission, morbidity, and mortality.

    I think a lot of us would settle for Covid not killing a few million people per year worldwide.

    Yes, the stupid is strong.
    It doesn't help to hold up eradication as a rationale.

    I don't think anyone who's been paying attention to anything other than Fox would think so. Virtually every other news source and the government stressed simply trying to buffer the effect so the strain on the health system is spread out. I don't think there's been any other serious argument.

    Lots of the stupid though.

    Dumb dad should be banned. Why isn’t his post count going up? He’s only here to sow mistrust and spread misinformation.

    yeah (yes), I will give him credit for the (subtle) troll...

    drop in a couple of terms like 'eradicate' and 'prophylactic' , and then
    backpedal, claiming he wasn't claiming vaccination requires eradication...

    well, there have been half a dozen earlier who have claimed w/o similar effectiveness, ...


    as above,
    Reduced morbidity, Reduced mortality ( And reduced transmission ) --

    so the proverbial pot gets stirred...


    I do admire the restraint several of you show in responding to so many of these posts - Thank you. ! MUnicorn, LSL, Multi- ( you, too, Summit )


    with Respect. tj
