But, did HIV/AIDS and Norovirus vaccines ever make it to trials?   If so, trials that were going well?   As well as a lot of people don't seem to understand they're not looking for a cure.  They're looking to get the immune response that will greatly reduce the symptoms so it's more like a common cold.

For many people, and apparently, hundreds of college kids, it is already less than a common cold without a vaccine.

K-12, college, and healthy people you mean*

Yes, I specifically mentioned colleges as they seem to have an infestation of infected people with zero symptoms. I can't help but wonder how many false positive tests are in the mix, too.

CDC guesses 11 asymptomatic to every 1 positive test result.

4th box of table 2

 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html

 

13% - 51% of population w/ best guess 23% - 73,000,000ish people.
 

They tell me to listen to the scientists - so there it is.  


Don’t think they talk about this on prime time programming - they are more into microdrama stuff.  
 

 

Regarding false positives - I’ve read from 15%-55% with PCR tests.  Harder to get concrete data on this through because of the massive failure of running too sensitive of a test.

Two down- suspension extension next I hope😇

 

Yup, I believe it is forthcoming.  The last no-sail extension was announced on a Thursday, right after the stock market closed.  Tomorrow is a Thursday and six days before the expiration on September 30th.  My money is on tomorrow at 4pm for the announcement.
