Okay, subby. Which part of that is asinine?  Please show your work.

Can we wait until he develops and releases Vaccine XP first?

Asinine? Really?

Also, if antibodies only protect for a couple of months as they think, a vaccine ain't gonna help that much.

The "antibodies are only good for a couple months" thing is based on a single, small sample size, non peer reviewed study from China.

Yeah but then we'll soon have Vaccine Vista... God forbid.

No more over seas vacations at all.  There will be another virus that becomes a pandemic.  Not just covid19.  So, to save lives, we must demand all people stay home.  We can exchange information over the internet.  Allow a small contingent of randomized people to travel abroad for genetic diversity.  Or we just ship gametes to other countries for genetic diversity.  problem solved.

Pffft. We all know that they've had a covid-19 vaccine for months. They haven't released it because their scientists haven't figured out how to make it cause autism yet.

Thankfully, he's only making factories that produce it, not actually developing it. I don't want my immune system to bluescreen.

What Bill Gates vaccine?  He's the one who has been readying for mass production once some third party comes up with the vaccine.  What the fark is wrong with that?

Subby is a mouth breather.

"Some people almost feel like it's a political thing which is unfortunate," he added, something he says he didn't expect in America.

What country has Gates been living in the past 4 decades?

Anything and everything gets turned into a farking political/culture war issue.

So about the same protection as the flu vaccine.

Some people just want a boogie-man?

Personally I dispise Windows as much as any other developer, but I just choose not to use it.

As for the rest, yup, shiat will be in some form of lockdown until there is a vacine, or a lot of people are going to die.  Hell, Europe is considering a travel ban to the US because you've farked the pony so hard.

I mean it's possible. But every green we've had about it on Fark, which seems to happen a couple times a week, all go back to the same unreliable study.

It's definitely possible there's been an actual study that just hasn't shown up here yet.

I know the other R word is verboten on FARK, but how about reQard? Is that OK?

Do your research, man.  The vaccine implants a nanochip that receives control signals over 5G.  It's powered from a mixture of blood glucose and traces of exotic molecules from GMOs and chemtrails.

WTF does software choice have to do with eradicating Covid-19?  He's not even a board member at MSFT anymore.

I know misleading and trolly headlines are a proud Fark tradition -- I've been here a very, VERY long time now -- but this one is pretty irresponsible, given the situation.

Thumbs down, man. Thumbs down.

It's not *his* vaccine, it's *a* vaccine he's behind.

And nowhere in the article dies it say what the headline implies.

And if it did it wouldn't be worse than accepting millions of deaths.

In short... Amazing. Everything word just said is... WRONG.

No, we could wipe out a disease like this with a vaccine that lasts a couple months. We'd just need to have a plan, and coordinate our efforts.

Plan to get everyone vaccinated in those few months. Even if you can't do it at once, roll it out in big blocks, region by region. It only lives outside the body for a few days. With everyone masked up to reduce transmissability, and a high % of the population immune for months, you can isolate and treat as many sick as you can while it burns itself out with nowhere to go.

Except "they" don't think that.

There was one farking study of 37 people that showed this. Multiple other studies of greater than 500 did not show that. Don't spout lies (at worst) or misinformation (at best). Also, antibodies solely aren't tied to efficacy. There these things called T-cells that are kind of "memory" to allow our immune system to respond.

It also appeared in legit journals since March-ish. they've bene consistently reporting on re-infection since Feb. It's just that nobody has figured out why, or how, or who. There are lots of unknowns. I mean, the virus disappears and then comes back 7 days later in the eyeballs, but only the eyeballs, in enough of a viral load to be contagious. When weird shiat like that is involved, the legit journals don't even know what to say.

Glad someone beat me to it. I have read a few other sources that suggest the same.

COVID-19 isois going to stop when we stop sharing it.

Wear your farking masks and wash your farking hands!
