The PRC/PLA doctors have proved that SARS-2 has man-made factors, meaning that the virus is new RNA virus with several mutations already, that is, changeable. Thus, a vaccine that targets at virus may not work at all. There must be other methods to cope with this pandemic, say [RNA+Protein] for ACE2, which I mentioned several times.
Nice post! In this era of health crisis, there are a lot of issues people are dealing with. It is essential that the government is taking good steps so that they can provide people better facilities and relief as well for their welfare. Thank you very much for sharing this information here! Keep up the good work!
Great post! It is a good thing that we have some excellent professionals working with the vaccine and who should get vaccinated first. I think it is important that we treat COVID as something that will never go away and we will always have to be coming up with a “new” vaccine for the variants. However, I do not believe that we should make it mandatory, just treat it as though we treat the flu shot.
