You mean black fungus?

that's what i am thinking of. something about the way it's been reported as a massive issue in india (and some other places) as resulting from compromised or weakened immune systems which would normally tackle it. being vulnerable to other things as a result, rather than just another in the catalogue of symptoms. i am not sure the issue is far along enough in the studies. i am interested in it, but the way it's spoken of feels a little detached or as though relatively minor cases that are enough to cause hospitalisation might then pick up black fungus as a bigger issue. after all, i hear covid 19 causes multiple organ failure, so there's lots of things within or connected to this umbrella term?

heard a story on NPR about doctors and nurses being attacked in india. has happened many times over the last year or so. family of patient who died from covid gets upset and blames doctor for the death of the patient. one attack they beat the doctor w/a kind o fbat.. dragged him out of the hospital and bloodied him up before he escaped. 

apparently it's happening often enough that people are being charged and there's a 'crack down' on beating up doctors.

Hot take: This plague has brought out the worst in humanity. There were those first few optimistic months where we were "all in this together" and since then it has just been a constant magnifying glass to people's selfishness, shortsightedness and willful ignorance. Some people have said they feel LESS empathetic now. I mean goddamn. That's pretty fucking sad don't you think? But seems to represent pretty well the fundamental problem with humanity that made things get as bad as they did (and still are for a lot of the world that's "out of sight, out of mind" for us). This problem is snowballing as we look around at the assholes who have handled the pandemic so carelessly, selfishly, even aggressively, and think "well fuck humanity then, it really is every man for himself". 
When the next virus comes along that's more deadly, we're not gonna make it.

yeah if the next one is 100% airborne, causes you to bleed out your pores so everyone knows you're infected, and you die within hours of contracting the virus, then yes, I think it will be far worse than the covid. that's essentially the zombiepocalypse, right?

if anything, this whole pandemic has made me realize I need to sharpen up the ol' survival skills. if it ever does get to a point like that, then we won't be able to calmly waddle into a grocery store to get our food with a mask on, because everyone will be scared shitless and everything will all be completely closed. more of us need to learn to live off the land. grow your own veggies. raise chickens. shit like that.

If the time from contagion to death is so short, it's easier to stop the spread because the infected die so quickly. To get something that's really dangerous it needs to have a longer asymptomatic incubation period so the infection spreads abundantly before killing the host. It's easy to recognize and avoid hosts with aggressive symptoms - a real killer would be something with a long incubation period, then a short period of light symptoms one can't tell are symptoms, then remission and then a fast burst of deadly things that leave the corpses infectious if not incinerated - oh and  not safely done, burning the corpses could produce smoke containing microparticles of soot carrying the disease, spreading it even further as the aerosols get pulled up in the atmosphere.

One thing that bugs (LOL) me about zombie things is that in reality there are a lot of insects both crawling and flying that would have an absolute feast if rotting flesh was available in zombie apocalypse quantities - carrion crawler populations would explode and dispose of the zombies, then the populations would crash - and those still alive could just wait for that to happen. With a disease that would use insects as asymptomatic hosts alongside the disease being airborne, we would be royally fucked. Getting bit by a mosquito that had already sucked blood off a sick host... malaria would be the least of our problems.

J&J looking like a stronger option, although with limited data at the moment.

2 jabs of pfizer is good against all variants so far. though they're working on a booster shot that adds protection for the new variants. 

also, there's a new variant they're calling Lambda.

Was supposed to get my first shot yesterday but was forced to reschedule due to an allergy attack that had me involuntarily dispensing snot to my surroundings. Luckily it only amounts to a slight delay but a bit miffed anyway.

As the OP you have the ability to do that, but if I were you, I would not. You might not like what's going on in the thread, but at 250+ pages it's not really "yours" anymore and besides, you're not responsible for anyone else's posts. Just ignore the topic.

We're not sharing and/or accepting the right kind of information and/or not acting in a proper way when presented with it?
