So their success is being pinned on not listening to the "experts"?

IDK. I found the political angle interesting.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This can also get filed under "things that will change" when this is all over. I think we'll see a push for both an independent US based monitor for global health issues, as well as a readiness team with stockpiles of supplies and plans of action.

The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

https://www.newscientist.com/term/cytokine-storm/
The concept of the biggest danger of COVID being hyper immune response has been mentioned here before. It was mentioned as a reason not to use NSAIDs like ibuprophen. The concept also seems to be borne out by this:
ppl with rheumatoid arthritis and lupus aren't immune deficient, in fact just the opposite.
They only become immune deficient (or technically immune-modulated) by the hydroxychloroquine drug- which is now being advocated for treatment. Theoretically that makes everyone treated for it with corona "immune deficient"
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
