It explores different symptoms and causes, the late recognition of patients, some potential treatments for a few symptoms. The coordination between some doctors.

Any mention of vaccination as a treatment?

Quote
"The next day, my mom was lined up with other prisoners. And moments before she would have been executed, a German soldier on a motorcycle arrived and handed some papers to the men in charge of the firing squad. They removed my mother from the line. As they rode away, my mom could hear the machine gun slaughtering those that were left behind. Two or three days later, she was released from prison after the Germans left Greece."

במשנה, מסכת סנהדרין, פרק ד', משנה ה' נאמר: "לפיכך נברא אדם יחידי בעולם, ללמד שכל המאבד נפש אחת, מעלים עליו כאילו איבד עולם מלא; וכל המקיים נפש אחת, מעלים עליו כאילו קיים עולם מלא".


Bourla's mother was pulled out of a firing squad by a bribe. Her son saved thousands of lives (and countless economic impact) by giving Israel priority.

Not sure all experts are calling this one yet. SARS (2002-2004) and MERS disappeared.

Still leaves a long way toward non-vaccine herd immunity. Even if you consider that some additional people were infected and their antibodies waned.

Most important point is that 80% didn't have yet. we can totally have another wave ch"v if it starts before vaccines cover all the older people.
And maybe people that go donate blood might be people that are out more and be likelier to have been infected as is.

Globally, the numbers have already started to increase. BH we seem to be doing ok so far in the US, probably aided by our high vax rate (28.5%+ over 18 with at least one shot) and the number of people with recent antibodies from the winter wave.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Certainly true for the broader US population, but doesn't at all consider what percentage of seniors have been vaccinated. As for frum communities the number is certainly higher than 20%, the question is how high.

37.6% fully vaccinated, 65.4% with at least one shot.
