While the US has a second week of record LOW cases increase, 1.25%, there is now B.1.1.7 and P.1 beginning to sweep the country.

Florida, which leads in new variant cases:

Unnerving Readings:

Prompt: 2300EDT,16March21 BBC News;   Brazil recorded its highest daily deaths 2,841 on Tuesday the 16th. Sao Paulo 679. There have been 282k deaths over the last year of pandemic in Brazil. "(R)egional hospitals are close to collapse." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-56424611 

l googled some data, to which l can determine that from and including 01March to sometime today, the 17th, Brazil will have 1 million new infections of C-l9, mostly of the P.1 Variant.

Yahoo ! News reprinted a 03March2021 New York Times article, "Brazil's C0VlD Crisis ls a Warning to the Whole World, Scientists Say." The "Tuesday ... 1,700 ... deaths" is Tuesday the 2nd of March.  According to the article, "Brazilians toss away precautionary measures that could keep them safe."  Hospitals on the verge of collapse, euthanasia, non-Covid second/follow-on respiratory infections(e.g. TB), P.1 was the variant in 91% of Amazonas State sequences, reinfections, and as of that date two weeks ago 5.8m/2.6% of Brazilians had at least one vaccine dose. A pulmonologist is quoted as saying Brazil needs to vaccinate 1 million per day.  https://news.yahoo.com/brazils-covid-crisis-warning-whole-194006373.html 

:ranting:  Only a US gov't ______ could even think of this.

Two mentioned "ills" are Russia and Cuba.

NOTE: For the 'World Warning', l read for the Historical thread that Brazil has 18% of the World's migratory birds (An estimated 1/2 to 1 billion come to the US and Canada.) Many species go to the 'Ethiopian Zoological Zone', id est, Sub-Sahara Africa.

"Double Mutation"  E484Q and L452R

Found by lndia's SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (lNSACOG) 

Quote from https://www.jioforme.com/understanding-covid-19-mutanta-in-light-of-the-surge-in-coronavirus-infection-in-india/287316/ date27March21 a few minutes ago:

"New virus strains with the two mutations have been shown to be highly infectious and may skip immunity generated by vaccines or spontaneous infections.  . . .a source of serious concern . . ." [bold added -ed.]

From the Net: the E484Q variant is comparable to the B.1.351 South African and the Brazil P.1.  The L452R is comparable to the California variant.

People who are immune can still get infected, the vaccine will only help with the symptoms.

It's hard to grasp the big picture without being some form of conspiracy theorist. It's much easier to be accused of it. 
The first time I was accused was for saying the 3M N95 everyone was scrambling for was the worst choice. I had to know everything 3M knew about their masks for 15 years but that didn't matter. The CDC finally confirmed what I knew but I was still wearing a tinfoil hat as far as those who accused me were concerned. Once labelled...

One of the things I've been watching is old words given new meaning. Since the 70's but never so much as lately. 

The word "Immunity" means you don't get infected. The virus enters your body and your antibodies break it down, it can't reproduce. Asymptomatic is much the same. A virus can't multiply in a hostile environment, (antibodies). How does one transmit what they cannot produce?

Prior to 2020 the NIH says they can't. Prior to 2020 masks were ineffective, prior to 2020, (WHO 2011), PCR tests could distinguish between SARS, MERS, influenza A and B. Now a PCR test covid only.  This is the only explanation for 80 city bus drivers behind masks and a shield testing positive...for influenza, aka covid.

Immunity for an untreatable virus is the reason for a vaccine. This would make the jab a treatment at best. The crux being, if illnesses and diseases are treatable, there is no requirement for a vaccine. It's apparently a legal thing. 
The question is, why the big push for a vaccine and the suppression of any possible treatments? 

I'm not seeing headlines of vaccine "will" help with symptoms, I'm still seeing "may".

"Key data shows vaccine may prevent transmission, not just symptoms"

"MMR vaccine could reduce 'severity and mortality' of COVID-19, new paper suggests".

Then again, just as encouraging..."Researchers at George Washington University say low-dose aspirin may lower the risk of going to the ICU or even death from COVID."

I'm am hearing doctors with many letters after their names, (not paid spokespeople that haven't touched a beaker in 20 yrs),  say, Vitamin D "will" reduce symptoms. Research shows those who have died have been vitamin D deficient, most cases vitamin D void. 

What I've gathered so far is 50mg Vitamin B12, 1000mgs of C, 3-4000 ui of D, and 4mgs zinc, add aspirin 81 to the list. Stay away from anti-inflammatories.

Half the US infections are in five states?

What about including California?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/nearly-half-us-virus-infections-194227189.html 

If I recall, New York and California were the hardest hit. Where Trump sent the floating hospitals. Neither were used to any extent. Cuomo doesn't want you to know how many people he put in the ground while those ships were at port. 

California has had a downhill roller coaster "infection rate" this year which just turned up from 1.02% a week ago to greet the third wave. Over 6% now, I believe the magic number is 8%. Their death rate has shown a slow increase with no correlation to  the infection rate at all.
