Effective therapies are the only thing I can see making a difference within the next year.

There may never be one, we want one surely but that should not be the focal point for life as we know it in my opinion.

We definitely need vaccines, but they take a good amount of time to develop and you can't give them to those who are already sick because vaccines often take four, five, or six weeks to take effect.

As I continue to talk to myself in this thread:

https://www.covidexitstrategy.org/

There is alot of data here that I want to mull over more when I get out of work but the upward trend of infections in the more rural states is unsettling however it looks like they have ICU and bed availability to weather a bit of that storm.

Connecticut is trending positively in most criteria for reopening except our ICUs are still almost 3/4s utilized and with a large increase in testing that is on par with the national recommendation the case fatality rate is over 10%.
I felt the reopen push before Memorial Day was a concession to the public and though I saw a lot of people acting according, I saw many not doing so. Infection due to these possible exposures wouldn't register for up to two weeks however Lamont signed another executive order upping the gathering number to 25 (from 5) and allowing barbershops/salons to open June 1st. I acknowledge there will never really be a perfect time to continue moving toward a full reopen but I feel another week of the current regulations might have been warranted.

A race for a vaccine, which clearly has a monetary incentive, might be quite the waste of resources when we simply don't know what we're supposed to be focusing on...

Coronavirus May Be a Vascular Disease

Different angle stemming from the clue, or quandary, of various organs/systems affected by COVID-19:

Drug targets enzymes

Dangerous line of attack in my opinion but so much information leads to more questions that I feel we're essentially just getting started.

Title is a bit misleading but I suppose that is nothing new these days:

Antibody treatment for COVID-19 ready for clinical trials
Sidhu wrote:
In contrast, he says his engineered antibody could be ready for clinical trials in two months

And with that method being synthetic we do seem to be making some progress on the organic antibody front as well:

First Antibody Trial Launched in COVID-19 Patients

The fact that Eli Lilly and Company is running the trial has me feeling a bit better, not that I dislike the Canucks or smaller independent labs but I know human foraging this widespread is going to take some time and a shit-load of money to refine as well as, hopefully, weather the storm of audit and oversight... oh, and be effective.

The fact-finding is both fascinating and frightening as the puzzle pieces are jossled together on the world's stage:

Blood Types and COVID-19 Risk Confirmed

Other corollaries of note that are very modern American:

Some young people that caught the COVID back in March are still suffering from it

For a lot of people it's not even that. It's quite literally nothing for a lot of people. The sad thing is there will be anecdotal boogie man stories about horrible side effects when a vaccine rolls around too, which will...not help. You guys need to turn off the news.
