    Even if a vaccine is developed, a lot of soccer moms won’t use it because they think it causes autism.

    • A A Ron says:

      Well think about how dumb people are though. HIV/aids increases each year and all you need to do is put on a condom and don’t share needles, yet people still don’t do it. 750,000 people die every year to HIV aids, and it is still classified as a pandemic.

      Who says a vaccination is the answer? Hasn’t been for the common flu or aids why this?Another famous quote “doing the same thing expecting a different result is pure insanity” just keep your hygiene up and wash your hands with hot water very simple

    • L Hayz says:

      @Becca A they used to bring all the children to the neighbors that had chicken pox why so that they would have early exposure and their bodies would do the job so that they would have immunity just because you don’t have a shot does not mean you don’t get immune and there has been studies that with cowpox it was only found by people that got vaccinated

    • L Hayz says:

      @Becca A you’re so worried about baby’s why do they grind them up and put them in the shots that you’re so supporting everybody get put into their body

      Good for you

    • Arshh khan says:

      Well said..

    • Holy Spirit Filled says:

      @Carlton Wright Get right with God before it’s too late! Cern is mining anti-matter.

      Once the anti matter is released into earths atmosphere and trickles down into the towns, cities, and states of the USA darkness is going to take over those who are without Christ. Once the darkness take over they will seek to devour those who have the light. Thing is, you could be a zombie right now based on the things you’ve done in your life that increases the darkness in your spirit.

      Once the antimatter is released you become overtaken with nothing but pure evil(Pure Life by Nestle) thoughts which will govern your actions.

      But wait there’s more! Once Satan is thrown down to earth, everyone who have been living in darkness (feeding on the pleasures of darkness- sin) Satan will then in turn combine all those who have been feeding on him and generate one huge enemy of God.

      God will destroy Satan and judge all of those who followed him.

      Still more, you have time to repent and get right with God before doing more blind cult following of the celebrities, millionaires and billionaires who refuse to help spend money to solve the problems of life yet profit from your attention.

  4. My Reviews says:

      The truth is folks, Jesus is Lord.

      “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
      John 14:6

      The Anti Christ will cause ALL both poor and rich to buy and sell using only a CHIP which alters your DNA provoking you to no longer be a true creation of Father God in Heaven deeming you a child of Satan.

       “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

      And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
      Revelations 13:16-17

      The latter truth is that Jesus died on the cross, not to make a point that he’s God-to release God’s Holy Spirit, through his Holy Body, and redeem us of our sins today.

      “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
      1 Peter 2:24, KJV

      We are saved once we confess our sins, repent of these sins and live a HOLY lifestyle fulfilling the will of the Father who’s in Heaven.

      “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
      1 John 1:9

      “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

      Romans 12:2

      Which is idiotic to people who believe that their entire life existence is to consume everything life has to offer and that money could buy.

      “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
      1 Corinthians 2:14

    “Immune enhancement” more like “Zombie Apocalypse”!

  12. Fake Name says:

    It’s right behind that cure for cancer we’ve been waiting 30 years for.

    Gilead?! “Under His eye.”

    • OldSoulMillennial says:

      Nolite te bastardes [Covid-19, Trump & Biden] carborundorum

    • LGtBT says:

      The Gilead thing is actually interesting. Wish the media would do their job and educate the public.
      Gilead’s Ebola drug Redemsevir is a new type of medicine called a “Protide”, developed and leased by Cardiff University. The first example of this technology was ‘Sofosbuvir’, which cured the ‘incurable’ Hepatitis C a few years ago.
      Protide drugs are showing huge promise in cancer treatments and could potentially be used against HIV.
      The best part is, it can be used to modify existing medicines to make them safer and more effective.

    Yet another possibility..”In the absence of vaccines or antiviral drugs, researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore say the key to slowing and treating the coronavirus might be hidden in the blood of those who’ve already recovered from the disease”. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-care/doctors-push-treatment-coronavirus-blood-recovered-patients-n1158476

    • Lost Hero says:

      They did that in the 1917 pandemic. It’s nothing new, but you have to have a test to determine if someone has really had the disease. That serology test won’t be available for a while either. We aren’t testing for Covid during infection either so it will be a while before we can use that method reliably because we won’t know who has actually recovered from the disease. You can’t guess about this.

    • Steamrick says:

      @Lost Hero Roche just released new automated tests for their 6800/8800 systems, which should massively increase testing capacity.
