We Are Still in a Race Against the Coronavirus
David Quammen
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a lesson in speed — the speed at which a novel virus among humans can spread, the speed at which it can rack up fatalities and cripple economies, the speed at which vaccines can be designed and produced, the speed at which misinformation can undermine public health. Amid all that rapidity is a different kind of speed, which drives the rest, like an engine spinning the cars on a nauseating carnival ride: the speed of viral evolution.

The coronavirus, like many other viruses of its ilk (RNA viruses with highly changeable genomes), evolves fast. It has adapted quickly to us. Now arises the crucial question of whether humans and human ingenuity can adapt faster.

Unless the answer is yes, we face a long, doleful future of continued suffering. Some experts reckon the toll of endemic Covid might be somewhere from 100,000 to 250,000 deaths every year, just in the United States. Millions of lives depend on whether human science, human governance and human wisdom can outpace the ingenuity of SARS-CoV-2, a relatively simple but enterprising agent consisting of four structural proteins plus an RNA genome. (...)

New Studies on the Origin of COVID-19
New evidence strongly supports the conclusion that SARS-CoV-2 emerged from the wet markets of Wuhan, killing the lab-leak hypothesis.

True for everyone, especially me. Seems that belief, no matter the subject, requires a certain amount of regular fortification, choices, etc.
 Refugee is a great song IMO.

If you're suggesting that somehow vaccines are creating vulnerability, you should listen again (and relax). Nobody knows for sure right now, but the people getting very sick and those dying from Delta are unvaccinated. Every time one of them gets seriously ill, the chances of a mutation that will kill us all increase. We are all more vulnerable because half of the world is unvaccinated...not the other way around.

I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I get the distinct notion that all this talk, conjecture, and analysis is just going around in circles, and that in fact the vaccine itself is setting up a tragic scenario where individuals become more vulnerable to variants of the virus over time and evolution. I sure hope I'm just being ignorant...

I'm pretty sure you answered your own question.

FWIW - Their leader is likely a member of several high-risk groups.  Who knows if they aren't answering because he isn't able to talk while intubated?

N. Korea still unresponsive to S. Korea's outreach for talks on COVID-19: official

North Korea has remained unresponsive for the second day to South Korea's attempt to offer dialogue on COVID-19 medical supplies and health care cooperation, a ministry official here said Tuesday.

The Ministry of Unification had sought to deliver a related fax message to the North on Monday through their liaison office. It is seeking to hold working-level consultations on the ongoing epidemic in the impoverished neighbor and assistance in medical supplies, including vaccines, masks and test kits.

The two Koreas held their routine phone call at 9 a.m. Tuesday, but Pyongyang has not expressed its intention to accept the message yet, according to the unification ministry official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"As North Korea is aware of our stance on cooperation in disease prevention, our government will wait for the North's response without pressing it," he said, stressing that the North will need time to review whether to accept the message.

If it receives a response from Pyongyang, the ministry will take a "practical and realistic" approach to review various ways to hold the working-level consultations, including an online videoconference, the official said.

During a plenary session of the diplomacy and unification committee at the National Assembly later in the day, Unification Minister Kwon Young-se said that providing the North with assistance through international agencies can be an option.

Now that "there are numerous political considerations as to why the North has not accepted the message yet, we need to think of ways to provide assistance through international organizations or nongovernmental aid in case we end up not providing it directly," he said.

Been so crazy that I forgot I was just exposed for the 4th time last Friday.  Our Doc felt like crap all day and I could hear him weezing coming up the stairs.  He left saying I think I have Covid ...  Got a quick test and we found out he tested positive before we went home that night.  My Mom gets admitted again, same afternoon for a wound infection and My plate runneth over with everything else.

BTW, our doc was 4 X Vax, wore K95's and gloves.  Changed gloves after every patient, as he should.  Very careful.

So as I wrap up the day and get ready for work tomorrow, I just remembered, oh yeah, I was exposed.  I have no idea what is going on at work since then.  I'll find out when I show up in the morning.  That will be 5 days.



hope all parties involved pull through
yes, it sounds like your plate is full
don't forget to stop and breathe
