"We’ll get out of this by the end of 2021."

I'm not sure this belongs in the good news thread.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

For wealthy countries like the US he predicts we will be okay much sooner

This sounds intriguing.

Can something like this be put into an HVAC system making an entire building safe?

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.

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.

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)_/¯
