    I must say, "No sign of transmission between humans" sounds waaay less comforting than it did a tad more than a year ago.
    It would be nice if we could get to a place where our community didn’t need a constant stream of fresh corpses to remind it how to behave.

    "Science and faith are fundamentally incompatible, and for precisely the same reason that irrationality and rationality are incompatible. They are different forms of inquiry, with only one, science, equipped to find real truth. And while they may have a dialogue, it's not a constructive one. Science helps religion only by disproving its claims, while religion has nothing to add to science." - J.A.Coyne

    Like the early comms about SARS-CoV-2, this should not be taken as being reassuring; we don't yet know where we stand.
