When scientific or medical articles or "breakthroughs" are reported in the mainstream media or other formats, one has to remember that this is not the original article but rather one that is written by the "Science" or "medical" reporter, many of whom lack the in depth training or qualifications to accurately paraphrase the article. They may also put their own interpretation on it. So, it always pays to go to the original peer reviewed journal article and read it if you have the relevant background to understand it!

The precautions I intend to take could actually safe my life at my age OR weeks of discomfort.
I'm glad I read and watched some valid information.

Could you quote the part of the article where you got that information? I cannot find a discussion of cultures at all, and cultures for the virus are not routinely being done.

It's from my son, who's a paramedic. The cultures we done on deceased patients during autopsies.

Then why did you cite an article RIGHT AFTER you wrote that statement, instead of saying your son told you? (I completely believe that your son told you that and I have no reason to doubt his information, but it made no sense to include a link that did not say anything like that, right underneath your statement.)

Today is 2nd day or NO Morning radio...I will however turn on NPR/BBC at 1:00PM.... here...No not a recluse but more control of what feeds into my mind. The silence is nice and more incentive to do some meditations...short ones. This is also a time when I go back on bed to do more stretches...

And I am believing more and more that some of these CV posts in H&W need to moved to PCOS...thought about this when I woke up.

I never get sick. I never get the flu or the flu shot. That being said, this virus scares the hell out of me. There's just something creepy about it that I can't explain, so I'm being very careful. Not crazy, just careful.

Really? Did you read the link?

Very important thing to remember. The more salient (or disreputable) points are regurgitated by a journalist...on top of any subtle bias the research itself might have, they are going to add political or prurient spin to it...cherry picking for effect. Not exactly the most neutral filter. Anyone wanna say agenda?

What’s important about the original OP article is they have cancer meds that already seem to treat this same Type of invasiveness into capturing cells. Hope they do trials soon on using them for covid.
