valvenator@tswrench "Rinderpest, a disease that infects cattle and other animals has also been eradicated by virus." I'm sure you meant vaccine not virus. My point about the common cold and flu is that we still carry on despite not having a cure and shouldn't put all our eggs in thinking we will ever find one for covid19.
tswrench@valvenator- Thanks--good catch! Although, there are viruses that provide co-immunity from other viruses, and wouldn't that be interesting if that became a viable solution? I'm well aware of the dodgy schedules for the delivery of vaccines, and that they might not be able to develop one, period. I was pointing out the fact to CALTECH007, that there have, indeed, been successful vaccines targeting viruses (see the OP).
A. oCicada Boi I have had vaccines. I don’t get the flu shot I did get the HPV and Hep A and Hep B vaccines. Early in life I got the mumps vaccine, not chicken pox vaccine wasn’t out then. I had my daughter get the chicken pox it was out when she was young. I don’t get the flu vaccine. If I want my immune system to be strong for future viruses I need to be exposed to cold/viruses.
Cicada Boi@A. o Sure, some viruses aren't dangerous but this one has been proven to not be just a seasonal flu. It's dangerous not just for you but for your friends and family. If you catch it and give it to your parents they might just die on yoy.
R. T@Evan Michael fauci has not been going off any science based evidence. Are you really that gullible? If he were. His 2005 his studies of hydrochloraquin would be the gold standard right now because its works on all corona virus but theres no money to be made in a $1 drug.This is about the almighty dollar like always and he's happy to sell us down the drain of sickness from different meds and new vaccines to line his own pockets . since 1986 drug makers have not had to make sure vaccines are safe. They dont have to, its not like we can sue them for it. The national news is selling you a bad bill of goods, rotten to the core. Wake up!!!
Evan Michael@R. T no I'm not that gullible. I read scientific journals and study evidence-based medicine. Hydroxychloroquine* (maybe spell it correctly before you write factual inaccuracies) does not have any clinical use against any coronaviruses. In fact, most of the coronaviruses have zero treatment protocols because they induce the common cold, a relatively benign illness. If you would like to take hydroxychloroquine, go ahead. We'll allow natural selection to run its course...
