I'm Covid 19, I am
Covid 19, I am, I am.
I infected the widow next door
She infected seven people more
Everyone asymptomaticly
Didn't have a fever or a spasm
Wear a farking mask, I'm begging thee
Covid 19 I am.

I really don't understand how Europe and the United States account for 98% of the cases. It's not that I don't recognize the US's response as abysmal, I do. I just don't get how less developed countries with more people living in closer quarters with less social distancing and worse health infrastructure aren't getting hit harder.

Is it a lack of tracking? As in, there are probably tons of cases in those countries but they aren't being reported?

Depends on how it mutates.   If the part of the virus that the anti-bodies are trained for by the vaccine is the same, then it is fine.  If not, then problems.
That being said, the flu vaccine seems to help with covid.  So even a vaccine for a previous mutation should help.

Depends on how similar the strains are.  If we treat corona like the flu, which from what I've read we are, we're actually vaccinating against several strains that we believe to be dominant for that year hoping that about half of everyone will have resistance.  If corona keeps mutating, I imagine the vaccine will be similar to the flu vaccine to where we never get rid of corona but mute its affects enough to severely reduce morbidity and mortality.

A quick look shows 121k dead in India. It's not like things are going well there. After that, they probably just don't have the resources to test all the dead to see if covid killed them.

"Covid 20" was just a Fark headline. It's still the same disease and essentially the same virus. At some point it might mutate in a way which would require a multi-strain vaccine (as with polio or influenza) but it hasn't yet shown any signs of doing so.

Competent government.

Here's an example:

Vietnam

From the beginning of the pandemic, Vietnam's Government went in fast and hard against the virus.
After its first case was detected in January, flights to and from Wuhan were cancelled.
By late March, the nation's borders were virtually shut altogether.

Testing, aggressive contact tracing and a mass multi-faceted public health campaign were quickly mobilised.


Plus many of these countries have been through pandemics before so know what to do, and they don't have groups of people having a meltdown because they have to stay inside for a few days and not being able to go to a hairstylist or a restaurant.

This is what'shiatting us now too...the difference is that we're in a MUCH worse position than those other countries at the start of this wave, which means it's going to suck extremely hard.

This isn't a surprise, medical experts having been warning about this since the spring/summer...even while Trump continues to assure us that we're turning the corner, and this will all go away.  fark Trump, and fark any of you unbelievably dense farks who continue to support that reprehensible farce of a president.  No, seriously, F&CK YOU.

India has a very young population and Covid deaths are very strongly linked to age.

I still think India is drastically underreporting, not even intentionally necessarily, but even still, their infected count is pretty high. Their deaths are very low though.

Vietnam has a fraction of the border space and international travel as theUS and most European countries.

Even if you could trust the numbers they're giving (you can't) It's ruled by a totalitarian regime that can easily restrict the movement and freedoms of its people.

Don't wear a mask in the US? You might get shamed on fark.  Don't wear one in Vietnam? You'll probably get shot/disappeared.  It's situation is literally incomparable to anything happening in the free societies of the world.   Stop trying to do so.

121k dead is not what I'd consider 'low.' Maybe lower than expected, but I'm still in doubt about folk being magically resistant to it when there are slums that have populations greater than some US states. Population density alone means it's going to be hard to contain.

Anyway, we're all boned, so time to run into the hills and work on some recipes for long pork.

So I guess you're pretending to yourself that's had any effect on the disease at all?


I could easily make the argument the US and European media over hyping the virus has had just as much of a negative effect as anything Trump did.  Each point of view has pretty much the same amount of evidence supporting it.
