I just got a big worried. Partly planned and partly an impulsive decision I visited my direct family this past weekend. We hadn't seen each other in person for 5-6 months. it was including most of the time (and sleepover) at my parents place (both >75 years of age, and cardiovascular patients). Just became aware of the fact we didn't always maintain the 1.5 m distance and I even gave my dad our standard kiss on the cheek at goodbye.

Hopefully I didn't got them infected or so.

Broadway star Nick Cordero died yesterday after 3 months in hospital fighting COVID-19; a stay which included a leg amputation due to complications of the disease. He was a very fit 41 year old man with no underlying health conditions.

Wear a mask, folks.
Not just any mask: look for masks with high thread count and non-woven fabric. Fit matters. Evidence of the  aerolisation of SARS-COV2 is making its way into the public domain:

Just read bubonic and pneumonic plague has been found in Mongolia.

In the Middle Ages pneumonic plague could kill within hours.

The US is a shite show with its inconsistent and political, not health/science,  informed response.

In the middle ages, 1348-52, a huge number of people made wills, more than was typical in prior years. I wonder if will-making is on the rise now.

People keep comparing covid to the flu of 1918. From my little documentary Great Lectures watching with Professor Dorsey Armstrong, there is more in common with Black Plague. We are only at 6 months. It took four years to wipe out most of Europe.

The US has on average, about seven cases of plague per year.

Yes, it can be fatal, but it is also treatable with antibiotics.

A few good links on the subject:

When looking online I see predominantly news items of today. But I can vaguely remember having heard and/or read about it before..... That it the Plague has been detected (or perhaps suspected) in the Mongolian area.

In addition, there seems to be a genetic variant among the world population that prevents someone from becoming ill or only to a limited extent (including death) from the plague. It would be the same variant, or at least similar, where people are not susceptible to HIV (and subsequent AIDS)

The plague was never fully erradicated, and it is actually pretty treatable these days with medication. You have a few cases every year, especially in the Mongolia/China border and some countries in Africa and South America.

Thanks Lady Liebe for the info in the US, I knew sometimes they have cases but never knew was a few every year  Thumb up

So the bubonic plague cases in 2020 is basically no news, it happens every year and nothing major diverged from it. People are scared with the whole covid pandemic and the press is just showing this like is a new and horrible thing happening, pure "click bait" imo. Is not, the only difference is that last year it was not interesting.

Editors could realllllly do democracy a solid by laying off the click bait.

Don’t let those pesky anti biotics get in the way of a good head line.

I recently found a hard copy variant of clickbait in my local library.

I myself have had a copy of David Quammen's book "Spillover" for years (the Dutch translated version). At the beginning of this year I finally read it. A very interesting and informative book about transmission of infectious diseases between animal (s) and humans. The book also deals with the SARS epidemic, which was just over at the time. It is suggested that a virus from the Cornona group might strike again in the future.

My local library initially didn't seem to have this book in its collection (it did show up later). But now they also have a 2020 Dutch edition. The attractive cover states: "The one who predicted the Corona epidemic."
