    Re: Covid-19 Part XII

    I'm glad the CDC is finally coming around to what I've been saying for months. I don't need their permission but it does look like this will open up more areas such as the Reds games where we can do away with the masks. Politics aside, they should have done this a long time ago for the simple reason as to encourage more people to get vaccinated.

    The pandemic is over folks. We won. Enjoy life.

    What are the restrictions in Ohio right now? A friend and I are thinking of making a trip there in late June, but not if there are a lot of restrictions.

    New COVID Variant Found in Florida As State Reports Over 10,000 'Variant of Concern' Cases

    A new COVID variant of concern (VOC) has been detected in Florida, according to the state's Department of Health.

    The VOC—dubbed P2 or P.1.1—is a mutation of the variant first detected in Brazil called P1 that is more transmissible and appears to have a higher risk of reinfecting people that have already contracted the original virus.

    Officials have so far identified two cases of the P2 variant in Florida—a 74-year-old man in Broward County and a 51-year-old woman in Duval County.

    I assume this should say scientists are NOT ruling out the lab leak theory.

    Scientists Were Hunting for the Next Ebola. Now the U.S. Has Cut Off Their Funding.

    Oct. 25, 2019

    In a move that worries many public health experts, the federal government is quietly shutting down a surveillance program for dangerous animal viruses that someday may infect humans.

    The United Nations Environment Program estimates that a new animal disease that can also infect humans is discovered every four months. Ending the program, experts fear, will leave the world more vulnerable to lethal pathogens like Ebola and MERS that emerge from unexpected places, such as bat-filled trees, gorilla carcasses and camel barns.

    The program, known as Predict and run by the United States Agency for International Development, was inspired by the 2005 H5N1 bird flu scare. Launched 10 years ago, the project has cost about $207 million.

    The initiative has collected over 140,000 biological samples from animals and found over 1,000 new viruses, including a new strain of Ebola. Predict also trained about 5,000 people in 30 African and Asian countries, and has built or strengthened 60 medical research laboratories, mostly in poor countries.
    The goal of Predict was to speed up and organize the previously haphazard hunt for zoonotic diseases — those that may jump from animals to humans. In recent years, scientists have discovered many lethal viruses lurking in wild and domestic animals.

    It has long been known, of course, that AIDS originated in chimpanzees and probably was first contracted by bushmeat hunters. Ebola circulates in bats and apes, while SARS was found in captive civet cats in China.
    These discoveries led to new ways of preventing spillovers of infections into human populations: closing markets where wildlife is butchered for food,; putting bamboo skirts on sap-collection jars to keep bats out; or penning pigs and camels in places where they cannot eat fruit that bats have gnawed.
    BTW, I purposely chose an article prior to the pandemic to illustrate this point. It's almost like experts knew exactly what was wrong with this policy.

    Went to the bank and Panera today. Only people wearing masks were the Panera employees.

    Vegas hotels and casinos are eliminating all social distancing and masking requirements for fully vaccinated people as of today. There is no verification requirment/need to provide proof. That's going to be ground zero for proving how effective vaccines are.
