Got it. People having sex with dogs caused corona virus. Just like AIDS.
Bat soup and monkey sex got us here. Confirmed.
Whats the situation in Hong Kong looking like? Have the protests halted because of the virus? Havent been paying attention.
monkey meat. HIV made the jump through butchering monkey
That’s only a theory. And actually it’s thought that the monkeys gave it to the chimps and then the chimps to the humans. Although there is a rarer strain of human HIV that may have come directly from monkeys. So there could have been all kinds of perverse stuff happening.
perverse? I think the whole "somebody [uck fay]ed a monkey" stuff is just bullshit trying to link a disease to a sin. an effort to make it seem like a divine judgement.
I think people probably just think of sexual transmission when discussing a sexually transmitted disease.
Which is a really effective way to get people to kill themselves--categorize it so that they don't consider that it is actually a fluids transmitted disease, and then they can share needles. And viola. One fewer.
An expert from Uganda once warned that you can get it from solids, too.
What is the solid?
I'm guessing feces.
I consider that a bodily fluid.
But we could still classify it as a "Human FAST" disease or "Human fluid and solid transmittable" disease.
I agree, but when you get down to it if you swallowed someone else's tooth, it was the fluid on it that would infect you and not the enamel. So I am not sure what "solid" there is that would be infectious without fluids doing the transmission on a microscopic level.
WHO expert contends that solids could contribute to HIV transmission
I'm not understanding his point.
It’s pretty high level stuff. Was hoping IP could dumb it down for us.
I’ve talked to handful of people with friends, relatives, business contacts, etc. in China. They all have been told that the numbers are massively under reported.
My contact over there, Wei Tu Lo, agrees
Under reported on infection or death, or both? Cause the numbers right now are like 2% death to infection.
