    There seem to be several promising candidates for a Covid-19 vaccine.
    Some may be easier to store (not needing extremely cold temperatures).
    Different vaccines may present different risk profiles for different groups (e.g. old people).

    "Coronavirus: 1 m ...[text shortened]... million doses of a Covid-19 candidate vaccine
    from Sinovac, in addition to its talks with Pfizer."
    Thank goodness China is here to save us from the western virus.

    There was no 'proof' that Covid-19 originated in a 'wet market' in Wuhan.
    There were many people (with typically thinly veiled racism) quoting one another
    to the effect that it's impossible that there could be any other hypothesis.
    As far as I remember (and I really can’t be bothered looking it up at the moment) the proof was that the virus sprang from bats to a second creature and then to humans in the Wuhan area. And that the RNA showed this to be the natural case and that it was therefore not made in a lab.

    Something like that.

    And please stop with the racism malarkey. Yes. There is a lot of racism, but the point of your article is surely the scientific angle and not to have a dig at Americans... they got themselves enough problems as it is...

    - Trump is a poor man's idea of a rich man; a weak man's idea of a strong man... and a stupid man's idea of a smart man.


    Trump finally wore a mask the other day and said he felt like the Lone Ranger.
    - But the Lone Ranger's mask had two eye-holes in it, while Donald Trump's mask only has one a55hole in it.

    Sorry, Trumpsters:

    "The Michigan board in charge of certifying election results cast a pivotal vote Monday to validate the state's tallies, cementing Democratic President-elect Joe Biden's victory despite unproven claims of fraud levied by Republican President Donald Trump.

    The Board of State Canvassers voted to certify the results after taking about three hours of public comment from election officials, lawmakers and residents.

    Republican board member Aaron Van Langevelde crossed over to join the two Democratic board members in supporting certification. He said the board has a "duty" to certify Michigan election results based on county returns as the panel holds a pivotal meeting. Longtime GOP member Norm Shinkle voted to abstain and expressed concerns about out-of-balance counting boards in Wayne County."

    "Van Langevelde, an attorney who works for House Republicans, said he had reviewed state law and the board was simply required to canvass the county returns and determine the results.

    "I've reviewed every section. I haven't found anything about an audit," Van Langevelde said. "I found nothing about authority for us to delay certification because we're waiting for more accurate results. I found nothing about making certification contingent on an audit. I found nothing that gives us the authority to review complaints for fraud.

    "I mean, I think, the law is pretty clear here."

    I expect racist Westerners to find it intolerably painful to abandon their cherished
    narratives demonizing the Chinese as the only possible source of Covid-19.

    Given that AIDS was detected first in the USA, would Westerners like to believe
    the HIV virus must have originated in the USA?
    Yah, well, I ain’t gettin’ into that with you.

    Good luck.

    It would be rare for me to drink wine with fish, I do understand many people do however.

    Never drink with fish. They never pay for their drinks and their conversation is rubbish (I'm told).

    I know the Canadians beat us to it (I thought they were suppose to be the nice people?), but to all of my fellow USA'ers: Happy Thanksgiving!

    The thing I am most thankful for is my family making it through 2020 with no serious problems. Also my two sons finishing university and passing their registered nurse exams and securing jobs. In this Covid world I worry about their safety as they work on the front lines.

    The “proof” earlier was that it started in the wet markets and not in a lab.
    If these new findings are provable, what does that say about the previous “proof”?

    No, no, hang on, I've got it now.

    Donald Trump's epitaph: here lies Donald Trump, succumbed to truth decay.
    Possible improvement: "In death, as in life, here lies Donald Trump, succumbed to truth decay."

    Watched a few and many express the opinion that their god will come down and change reality so Trump can win . That must be what is the general conversation in an insane asylum , only weirder .

    God sent Donald Trump (next in line after Jesus) to save all real Americans from
    Covid-19, abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, race-mixing, Muslims, and China.

    Have faith, God will never let down his favorite people.
    Even now, God is calling upon Americans to join him in record numbers in heaven.

    '...Can Trump be punished for this when he leaves office?'

    Probably no one on the left wants to stir up anything especially when it concerns something as important as a US election. Of course that thought doesn't seem to have occurred to the Trump team. He may be liable in a court for other areas such as money or taxes.

    What I dislike Trump for isn't illegal actions, but his cruel, petty, meanspirited, and vulgar actions and words for the last four years. From mocking a disabled reporter to selling canned beans from the Oval Office to lies about the election results.

    Sir, I thumb you down every morning before I even put on my socks.

    That said, no thumbs on 1st Dec.
