    "Among those, about 23% of the survey participants were still experiencing symptoms that lasted for more than 12 weeks, which the researchers considered as having long COVID."

    Yeah, Kes...this is about the only place I post my opinions because it is civil and respectful. I use Facebook to see how my grandkids rabbits did in the county fair. :)

    After reading the last 2 days of posts, I think it's time for my coping song.

    (AJ clears throat)....Somewhere...over the rainbow....

    Ugh....terrible news for sure. If there is a silver lining, at least as far as viral spread is concerned, is that it has evidenced itself, historically at least, as being relatively slow to spread, less easy to transmit and hence easier to isolate and control.

    The data shows us Polio cases and deaths peaked in 1952 with 58K and 3K respectively. Distribution of the vaccine began in late 1955. From the time of it's peak until end of 1955 when the virus had a "clear runway" so to speak, total reported cases and deaths were 161k and 7K respectively. Unencumbered by any vaccine in 4 years yielded 161K cases, 7K dead.....at it's peak Covid had 300K and 4K dead....PER DAY. Indeed, at present, the Covid burden is still costing us 1 million hospital days/month. No doubt, polio is a terrible disease to be sure, but in terms of its threat and burden to society, a mosquito on the ass of an elephant by comparison.
