    Yeah, that stuff is nasty. Try Listerine breath strips. Let one dissolve on your tongue right before you take the medicine. Helps quite a bit.

    Ironically, 20 years apart, I handled the legal work on the naming for both LISTERINE POCKETPAKS (in 2001) and PAXLOVID (in 2021).

    At my sonís outdoor wedding in Boulder the sky started falling 30 minutes before the ceremony. Couldnít see 3 feet in front of you. Fortunately we had a covered backup location we were able to drive to. Everyone was soaked and much hilarity ensued.

    Probably, a good thing it was your sonís wedding instead of your daughterís. Some mothers and daughters would have a meltdown.

    At this time in the pandemic, are you still recommending all older patients (60+) take Paxlovid? Said differently, is there a pandemic time point when we would be better off letting our immunity system do all the work?

    I have a mid-30s coworker who just tested positive last week and was given Paxlovid.

    I don't get the impression that using Paxlovid has a long term effect on herd immunity, but I could be wrong.

    Taking it won't make you not mount a response to the virus, and it doesn't hamper your immune system's work at all.

    Apparently Texas just passed a state law forbidding public health to use any tax dollars promoting Covid vaccination.

    We live in strange times.

    A 2020 email from Peter Daszak to David Morens at NIAID has now been made public. Includes the interesting tidbit

    "we have 15,000 samples in freezers in Wuhan and could do the full genomes of 700+ CoVs we've identified..."

    Why is this interesting? It was well known that scientists at the Wuhan facility took samples of bat viruses.

    700 different COVID strains? All from nature? Or, were they created via GoF experiments? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Yes, from nature. If by "COVID" you mean coronaviruses (a family of viruses, not a specific one), then it is totally plausible. The context of the email in the link makes that pretty clear.
    Nothing to see here...

    The email says coronavirus strains, not Covid strains. That's a huge distinction.

    Masks to be illegal in NC?

    NC Senate votes 30-15 to make masks illegal, even for health reasons. Unbelievable.

    Our state legislature is reprehensible.

    Once again NC continues to be the crazier of the Carolinas. SC thanks y'all.
