Nope. Ironically, I expect the ACA to protect those idiots and losers from that--and endanger the rest of us.wings wrote: Fri Jul 30, 2021 9:19 pm Forget mandates. I'm waiting for insurance to drop everyone who won't submit proof of vaccination. That's the capitalist way.
Delta, or something even worse, was EASILY predictable. By my seat of the pants estimate, based solely on #s I pulled out of my butt, I figure in 18 months the virus mutated 2000 times faster than humans have since we separated from other apes 6 million years ago.
The 3 numbers I pulled out of my butt:
1) Every infected cell produces 200,000 copies of the virus (Could be more--scientists say "hundreds of thousands")
2) 1/100 of 1% of the roughly 37,5 trillion cells in the average adult--pure guestimate of the percentage of infection
3) That 200 billion individuals have been born in the 6 million years since we and what became the chimpanzees, our closest relative, diverged. My ONLY basis is I remember seeing that it was assumed that 60 billion people had lived since we became, I guess Homo Sapiens.
Using these, plus the total of people infected, there are many, many orders of magnitude more of the virus than humans.
