If it means a little less animosity in this world? Something positive coming out of an all around horrible situation? Sure.
very true but does this really have to be headlines?

Honestly, yes. Let people be inspired to reach out to others they haven't spoken to in 20 years. Let them see something positive instead of another "BDE" or "The World Has Anti-Semites" post.

No article yet but saw today that El Al is sending cargo planes of PPE to US cities (first one yesterday to Detroit) that was obtained from China.

It’s a little sad that it has to come to this. The fact that such animosity can exist half a century after the holocaust tells me that Coronavirus is just another exceptional time and soon enough we’ll get back to business as usual.

We need to say “BDE” (I mean that figuratively of course) to humanity collectively.

Fascinating. This would turn COVID-19 also into an STD which could explain why it is different from SARS and MERS in transmission rate.  Sure hope they investigate this theory quickly.

How so? There is no discussion of transmission.

Very preliminary theory and I am not an MD. 

1.  COVID-19 "utilizes ACE-2 as a cellular entry receptor" by binding to it.
Quote taken from https://www.rndsystems.com/resources/articles/ace-2-sars-receptor-identified

2.  "It is mainly expressed in vascular endothelial cells, the renal tubular epithelium, and in Leydig cells in the testes.15,16 PCR analysis revealed that ACE-2 is also expressed in the lung, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract, tissues shown to harbor SARS-CoV."
Quote taken from https://www.rndsystems.com/resources/articles/ace-2-sars-receptor-identified

3.  "The results indicate that ACE2 highly expresses in renal tubular cells, Leydig cells and cells in seminiferous ducts in testis. Therefore, virus might directly bind to such ACE2 positive cells and damage the kidney and testicular tissue of patients."
Quote from https://www.researchgate.net/publication/339243337_ACE2_Expression_in_Kidney_and_Testis_May_Cause_Kidney_and_Testis_Damage_After_2019-nCoV_Infection

4.  "The seminiferous tubules are the site of the germination, maturation, and transportation of the sperm cells within the male testes."
quote from https://www.innerbody.com/anatomy/male-reproductive/seminiferous-tubules

This has, obviously, larger implications if true.
