Pray for Florida

As we anticipated earlier, we will likely not experience a 'second wave' of Covid-19 infections.  Unfortunately, the reason why is that the first wave never went away.  Numbers are beginning to approach the early April numbers when social distancing measures...

COVID AND IMMUNITY

Just a quick blurb today on an article that is in preprint and will come out shortly.  This is taken from the Johns Hopkins Covid site I had referenced before.  It is a good source of daily information on pandemic numbers and latest research. ANTIBODY...

COVID KNOW YOUR RISK

I'd like to start by expanding on a theme from my last missive.   I believe a vaccine is too risky given the dual pressures of needing to have it today and the complexity of getting something safe to market.  Developing safe treatments on the road to herd immunity is...

COVID AND YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

I wanted to take a little time to go into some of the science behind what is going on with Covid-19.  Some of you may be at greater risk from dying from boredom here than Covid but bear with me. A feature of these novel Corona viruses (SARS, MERS, Covid) is that they...
