This sounds intriguing.

Can something like this be put into an HVAC system making an entire building safe?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Flights to nowhere was an old Israeli idea that people used for the experience + duty free purchases. IIRC it faltered after an adverse tax ruling.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Probably more value in being able to say that you flew out of SDV than the actual flight.

Now it would be nice if they would use a more obscure airport, but I guess those don't have the capacity for aircraft that can carry more than a handful of passengers.

Any speculation?
So that means that all of a sudden the press will say that this medicine doesn't work?

He is doing this during the time period that Dr. Fauci can't speak. And Dr. Birx isn't at the conference either so... »\_(ツ)_/»

Read the responses. Too much assuming and bad math here.
THe study itself is definitely good news. The study does not reach the conclusion that this tweet does simply because the reactions were varied and not necessarily enough to prevent infection or even severe infection. Any level of pre-existing immunity is good news though since it lowers the required threshold for herd immunity.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. T-cell prevalence is good. How good, and what exactly T-cell prevalence means with regards to immunity or even lessening of symptoms is still very much a work in progress. This guy's tweet is misleading at best.

Correct. Some suggested that he announce oxygen therapy and Dems will boycott breathing.
