Europe? Nope. Asia? Nah. The Golden State? Hell yeah. While Republicans and pathetic Russians just really try to paint California as a hinterland filled with feces in the streets heroin needles homeless people and homosexuals Californians and their Public University system have found a way to cure the illness that Trump has allowed to run rampant in America.

From the article: "For context, more than 500 Californians have died from the flu since September of 2019 " that's almost 100 people per month, and this year's flu season is not over yet. For comparison, four people in California have died of COVID-19."

We really do have our priorities wrong.

Cure is a stretch. Medical care to help you get better is what they do for everyone who is sick.

A cure makes you think they have a vaccine, which they're not claiming.

This is like what -- the fourth or fifth claim to a cure?

And whatever happened to the Chinese claim they had one that was a cocktail of three drugs including malaria medicine (which ------ hilariously claimed Pakistan gets credit for)

Vaccines are prophylactics, though some may be developed or used as therapeutic vaccines to treat someone that already has disease.
Also there's no cure mentioned in the article. Did I miss it?
I only found efficient and effective precautions to prevent the spread.

I read the article - I didn't take away anything about a cure. What I took away is the disease is droplet spread, they treated patients successfully and no staff have been infected yet.

This is the kind of ignorant posts and thoughts that make me want to punch people. Are you Russian or something? Or do you really not understand? #2 on the seniority list yet 5 posts and all from the past 3 months?

This is just as contagious as than the flu if not more so and from 10 to 100 times more deadly depending on who you believe. The number will of deaths will spike as this gets worse and considering 15-20% of those infected require hospitalization... Understand we don't have the facilities to treat those that are going to require treatment and that is going to cause a bigger spike. For your reference flu is .1% fatality rate and less than 1% hospitalization rate.

Most cases will be "mild". Mild in this disease is classified as all the way to pneumonia not needing supplemental Oxygen. Of those mild cases many actually are very mild. That doesn't change how deadly the disease is. Not everyone who got Polio died or was scarred for life either. Still a deadly disease.

My mistake I got a little overly excited and wrote the word cure when I should not have.

They're still making great advancements despite what the green eyed Russians wish was true.
