Two important things ... and two "who gives a shit ?" things ......

However I think Bernie lost all the Cuban ex-pat votes in and
around Miami for making one of the lamest excuses for a
murderous totalitarian dictator in recent memory.

As for "warmer countries" ... viewing the latest maps, the
tropical countries ARE suspiciously unaffected. Might be
there is no reporting plan, might be few people travel in
or out, might just be that warm humid weather does not
leave membranes so succeptible or encourage people
to huddle in small closed-up spaces.

So, move to beautiful Immokalee Florida - which is hot
and humid most of the time. Cultural amusements may
be a bit sparse though and the median income is only
$25,725 and the primary language is Spanish ..............

Saw TWO reports today on C19 vaccines/treatments.
BOTH claimed they would not be ready for 12-18 MONTHS,
although an engineered vaccine has already been sent to
the US govt for testing. Sorry, that DOES NOT CUT IT !
How about two or three WEEKS hmm ???

The treatment was an newish anti-viral drug and they
are, as usual, risking the lives of 50% of the test
patients by giving half a placebo. Claim THAT study
will not be done for a YEAR. Again, DOES NOT CUT IT !
The anti-viral is "mostly harmless" anyway, so GIVE IT
TO EVERY SICK PERSON and hope for the best.
The scientific method is very nice, but there are times
when you just cannot WAIT for it.

Some Chinese docs claim to have come up with some
odd mixture that also includes an extract from brewers
yeast. What else they add to it is unknown, but the
yeast extract seems to be a 'sensitizer' of some kind
that helps the rest zero in on some known feature of
the virus.

The number of Cuban expats who vote blue is miniscule. So
the number of votes lost is nil.

Yup, from CHINA. To be taken with more than a few grains of salt. About all
they've able to offer so far are quickie test kits:

I'm surprised they haven't recommended acupuncture...
