    Good interview with the NIH director Francis Collins

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    How SARS-CoV-2 in American deer could alter the course of the global pandemic: https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsan...lobal-pandemic

    Scientists have evidence that SARS-CoV-2 spreads explosively in white-tailed deer, and the virus is widespread in this deer population across the U.S.

    Researchers say the findings are quite concerning and could have vast implications for the long-term course of the global pandemic.

    Since SARS-CoV-2 first emerged, there have been several signs that white-tailed deer would be highly susceptible to the virus — and that many of these animals were catching it across the country.

    In September last year, computer models suggested SARS-CoV-2 could easily bind to and enter the deer's cells. A recent survey of white-tailed deer in the Northeast and Midwest found that 40% of them had antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.

    Now veterinarians at The Pennsylvania State University have found active SARS-CoV-2 infections in at least 30% of deer tested across Iowa during 2020. The study, published online last week, suggests that white-tailed deer could become what's known as a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2. That is, the animals could carry the virus indefinitely and spread it back to humans periodically.

    If that's the case, it would essentially dash any hopes of eliminating or eradicating the virus in the U.S. — and therefore in the world — says veterinary virologist Suresh Kuchipudi at Penn State, who co-led the study.

    People testing negative for Covid-19 despite exposure may have ‘immune memory’
    Study says some individuals clear virus rapidly due to a strong immune response from existing T-cells, meaning tests record negative result

    The study in question in Nature magazine

    There's no eradicating Covid at this point anyway, so I don't know how this finding changes that.

    Tracking animal reservoirs might be a good way to preempt local infection spikes
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    So is social distancing meaningless then? I mean, who is hanging out within 6 feet of a deer?

    Well yes I know. Like Dorvil i am wondering what is the viral leap between deer and humans. You cant just pet them. Can covid even jump from a deer/human to a cow? Never heared of that. <city boi>

    In addition to people regularly feeding them, they're ubiquitous in surburban areas in the US where they will come into close proximity with domestic pets, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, and other medium-sized mammals.

    Don't forget ticks (that already transfer disease from deer to humans) fleas and mosquitoes.
