Coronavirus has protein spikes that attach to receptors to travel thru the human body and create havoc & hell. Or stays quiet.

Increased testing is crucial. But you have to have symptoms to receive a test. It's still complicated, difficult and the waits are still long.
Too many people are ignoring the science and are having a wonderful time in large gatherings with friends and family.
The holidays are around the corner. How will the population handle the Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Kwaanza and New Years?
The shopping online will be at an all time high. And so will the trash from the holidays. Deliveries will be peaking, and so will the virus.
Covid19 worldwide statistics... See where your country stands on the link below.
The United States is known presently as the leader of the Coronavirus Pandemic, unfortunately because we are more infected than anywhere in the world. We have the highest rate of infection and death. The USA has surpassed 10.5 million cases and 240,000 deaths. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projects there will be up to 282,000 US coronavirus deaths by December 5.
The Washington National Cathedral ,invited Dr. Anthony Fauci to speak because the present government administration is at odds with science. President elect Joe Biden is not in the oval office yet, so everything has to circumvent the current administration. So we go to church on Zoom.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has much to say.
President Biden has created a task force to roll out new protocols, unify efforts as a united front, and the introduction of a new vaccine.
Dr.Anthony Fauci... Dr.Francis Collins with Dr.Luciana Boria, lectured the science and the plan.

Operation Warp Speed...
The development of the Covid19 vaccine and stockpiling is well underway, but it's all waiting for the FDA's approval.
The 1st phase of the vaccine will be administered to frontline and healthcare workers, starting December of this year 2020.
The 2nd phase of the vaccine is scheduled for the 2nd quarter of 2021 to the next level of priority population.
The 3rd phase of the vaccine is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2021 which will be the general public.
The goal is to reach herd immunity which will take 80% of the population to be vaccinated.
So far 17 billion dollars has been spent on Operation Warp Speed, logistically run under the Defense Department.
Operation Warp Speed's goal is to produce and deliver 300 million doses of safe and effective vaccines with the initial doses available by January 2021 the latest, as part of a broader strategy to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics (collectively known as countermeasures).
Questions raised...will the population consent to be vaccinated? Californians, the largest state, highest population and highest number of cases, are notorious for being anti-vaccination for the most basic annual protocols. Will the state & local governments cooperate? Will the federal government be forced to mandate?
This post is not to create controversy. It is to stimulate the clicks to inform ourselves of what is coming down the pike. Whatever affects the USA often affects the world.
A program is in place for a population of a democracy that has a constitution and freedom of choice.
It's going to be interesting watching this playout. Will you be a participant or a spectator? A hopeful or a victim? We shall see.
Meanwhile we may be going into our winter "LOCKDOWN".
Stay tuned world. Stay tuned.
