The vaccine manufacturers have to guess several months ago which flu strains will be circulating this fall, place the orders and start incubating the eggs and making the vaccines. Sometimes the guess is spot on and other times not so much.

Yep, I knew that, hence my hoping it works on this year's variant.

Based on the purchase history of lab testing materials, COVID may have been present in Wuhan for some months before the PRC reported it in December 2019.

Given the amount of travel, does that mean it was already spread to a lot of places around the world before it was ever publicly reported on?  I recall many wondering why California didn't see a spike in cases early on.  Maybe they did, but before anyone knew there was something new.  I remember the people who went to SHOT show 2020 talking about catching the usual bug there and getting hit pretty hard.  I guess that is all speculation.

There was a lot of evidence of "early covid", last year already, that was heavily repressed by big tech.

I had a really nasty in December of 2019. Basically, the inside of my head felt like I was undergoing an extended session of CS gas training. My sinuses gushed for 2-3 solid days. I slept face down with my forehead on a chair by the bed, dripping onto a towel I threw away. Back at work (because work...) the next day, I passed it on, and it damn near kilt a cow orker. I think it was here. Lots of similar reports out there. JR got an antibody test in early 2020, when they became available, and tested positive, and he was sick about the same time.

Only hardline lefties aren't surprised by these revelations.  But then, they won't accept the mounting evidence either.  :rofl:

Or gee... Would they engineer a pandemic to cover up something else? They were having problems with Hong Kong dissidents earlier in 2019.

And so it begins:

https://www.foxnews.com/us/colorado-health-system-denies-kidney-transplant-unvaccinated

Quote
A Colorado woman with stage 5 renal failure is scrambling to find a new hospital to perform a kidney transplant after a health system in the state denied the transplant due to her and her donor being unvaccinated against the coronavirus. 

"Here I am, willing to be a direct donor to her. It does not affect any other patient on the transplant list," Jaimee Fougner, Leilani Lutali’s kidney donor, told CBS4. "How can I sit here and allow them to murder my friend when I’ve got a perfectly good kidney and can save her life?"

Lutali said she received a letter from Colorado health system UCHealth at the end of September explaining that she and Fougner have 30 days to begin the vaccine process. They would be removed from the kidney transplant list if they refuse the shots.

Of course they would.  But I don't think they did.

But they might try it if they thought (among other things) the PRC could reduce their "surplus population".  They might even have hoped that it would reduce those "ethnic minorities" that they are already trying to eradicate (the Uighurs).

May not quite work like they’d hope.

I finally heard a good reason for wearing a mask:
"Friends please put on a mask.  It saves lives.  Yesterday a friend of mine went out with his girlfriend and on the way passed by his wife and she did not recognize him.  The mask really saved his life."

I was thinking it would give them an excuse to disappear people. 

However, better to assume incompetence as the most likely reason in a good country.  In a communist system, incompetence is even more likely.

On one hand, this is good advice based on common sense — get your flu shot, which is even more important in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. On the other, though, CDC director Rochelle Walensky offers a contradiction in support of it. Thanks to the masking and social distancing imposed to stop the spread of COVID-19, she argues, the flu didn’t spread much last year, leaving the “herd” less immune this fall and winter. That puts us at greater risk of having both a bad flu and COVID-19 season this year.

That's a feature, not a bug. It means more lockdowns and masking, you know, doing the same thing and expecting a different result.

Wyoming high school student arrested for not wearing a mask at school:

Of course, the entire school was placed on lockdown as well.

I'm not sure what to make of this.

https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/8/more-americans-have-died-covid-under-biden-trump-j/

Apparently, by the John Hopkins numbers, there have been more Covid deaths under the Biden admin than from Mar. to Dec. of 2020. Haven't gone through the #s from the source material yet.

Is that a result of the pandemic going endemic, and most of the country going back to business as usual in many respects? Or is the vaccine just not worth it? Is the new administration to blame?

To be fair, the student in question said she was seeking an arrest to provide standing for a lawsuit, and she had already recieved a trespass citation, so the arrest isn't that surprising or even out of line.

The lockdown seems a bit much.  If I were a betting man, I'd  say the administration did it so there were no kids with cellphones filming the arrest, in case it went bad, but that's just a guess.

Aspirin may help with respiratory issues. The study was at George Washington University, but the Jerusalem Post had no links to the paper.
