Uh oh bros.

On April 2, 2020 the University of Pittsburgh made the following announcement:

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine scientists today announced a potential vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pandemic. When tested in mice, the vaccine, delivered through a fingertip-sized patch, produces antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 at quantities thought to be sufficient for neutralizing the virus.

Then yesterday, May 4, 2020 the following:

Coronavirus In Pittsburgh: Researcher Killed In Apparent Murder-Suicide Was Close To ‘Making Very Significant Findings’ Related To COVID-19, Pitt Says

https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2020/05 ... r-suicide/

Also this: Three Russian Doctors Treating The Coronavirus Have Fallen Out Of Windows In Just Over A Week

That’s the first I’ve heard about Pittsburgh, but those Russians had all publicly complained about lack of PPE prior to their “suicide attempts”.

Do they even try to hide this shit anymore? Do they assume we're that dumb, or to they leave the veil intentionally thin to send overt messages to the masses lest we raise a stink?

I don't know who "they" are, what's going on, or why. I can't understand why anyone would interfere with people researching treatments or cures for disease.

What do you guys think?

I can understand why the Russian government would harass people making it look incompetent in its response to the Chinese AIDS virus, as that's rather typical of them.

That's a really good question. I don't know. I think they're impatient and haven't felt any blowback in a long time and endgames are more about leveraging obvious advantages. And they believe they are in the endgame.

I think the Pitt guy had a falling out with his gay lover. His grad student researcher, who was doing all the work anyway, will continue on.

And gets to be primary author now. So kind of a win.

Here's a pretty amazing article on the Five Eyes intelligence group's analysis of Chinese complicity in the COVID-19 plague. It's very long, and very detailed, full of names and dates, but it will definitely get you on a fuck China tip. Five Eyes is the combined intelligence of United States, Australia, NZ, Canada and the UK, BTW.

China to have any real repercussions over this shit? Does the civilized world grow a spine? Or are we too fat, dumb, and happy with our Chinese shit to even bother anymore?

Re-elect Trump, maybe.
Anybody else, no chance.

Yeah, Trump can definitely make hay with a, "I was hating the bat fuckers before hating the bat fuckers was cool" line of attack. Particularly since Biden, and the Democratic Party as a whole, has been enabling them for years.

About those Russian doctors flyin out of the windows.
Nothing unusual, not joking.
At least one of them dropped, when he smoked sitting on the windowsill with legs hanging out of the window, and was drunk.
Quite a common acident.

Others I did not even googled.
They are working hard now, and need some relaxing. Of course it is a good soil for conspiracy theories.
But people are drinking in Russia. This is sad fact.

If true, widespread mask usage is almost free, allows an open economy, and could buy a ton of time. Unfortunately, to get to 80% it would require Republican leadership, which doesn't appear forthcoming.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Yep. You are correct. The leadership vacuum is appalling.

How so? Do Republicans tend to run the most crowded areas in the US?

They tend to be the most likely to gather in non mask wearing groups, and they head up some big states (Texas, Florida).

Are you saying Texas and Florida aren't big and don't have crowded areas? Houston? Dallas? San Antonio? Miami? Tampa - St Pete?

New York a low per capita death toll too, until they didn't.
