All ah go say, is this virus have them confused.  Maybe next year, they will have it figured out. Saw this morning, it seems SA got its number, they are applying different techniques and are saving ah bunch ah life's.   South Africans are not even worried about it, they think they can beat it when you get it.

Slice, you hit the nail on the head with your statement that "this virus have them confused". It is also mightily embarrassing to see many learned minds grasping to explain to the world what is actually going on with Covid-19.

Still, let's hold on for some eventual resolution.

Yes sire that is what we must do is hold on.  In Maryland it is down to under 300 positive daily.  Overall about 70.000.  That means that about 300.000. have or had  for the virus.

I don't know where you got that from, I did a quick scan, and yes they have a range of techniques all of which are already out there, and if were applied probably would help, but strange that the have a totally exponential growth of cases. Maybe they are doing Trumps method of treatment Zinc, a maleria drug, and an antibiotic, that does seem to be pretty effective at holding it down, especially in the early stages.
