  • Why they even 'considering' shutting down mink farms. It should be done immediately. It's not up for discussion. We have been accusing the chinese for causing the pandemic by selling wildlife for food and demanding they stop this practice immediately because such animals are reservoir for the deadly virus. but western countries are also exploiting wildlife for fur and it is now proven that these minks are also a reservoir for the virus. For the very same reasons you demand the chinese stop eating wildlife, you should ban mink farming immediately!

  • N95s save lives. A face covering will not protect you or others. Get a real NIOSH filtering face-piece to filter aerosolized virus. No beards, and loosely cover the exhalation valve type. You put HEPA filters on everything including vacuums, HVAC, cars etc., so put one on your face. If you want more protection, P100s are rated at 99.9% to 0.3um. Protecting yourself from infection stops the spread.

  • Oddly it may pass to all animals and people eventually but it can be slowed down by mask. That will not eliminate covid however. Its kind of like radiation, it will seep everywhere eventually and slowly do harm until it builds up enough to start doing massive harm. But no one cared about that they just use the nuclear power plants anyway. Trump removing laws that protect rivers and streams from more pollution. Seems a never ending or never winning battle because after all this virus came from pollution, biological pollution mixing among a zillion crowded animals in the first place that man caused. The root cause is always pollution that when it becomes to much mother nature just cant control it or clean it up fast enough then. And the result is always the same, bad things happen then. We can hope that humanity builds an immunity, if not right away then maybe eventually otherwise the only hope will be the covid vaccine, but then how long does that really last for protection as no one has used it enough to know. Is the vaccine something everyone will half to get each year for life if it dont last a life time, will they eventually charge an arm and leg for the vaccine years down the road. Given its assumed now the covid will keep circulating and be more worse during winters. Or could we get lucky and it somehow fades back into the shadows with enough time. No one knows I guess, but time will surely tell.

  • While the reasons for a desire to bring a Covid-19 vaccine to market as quickly as possible are all too clear, great care must be taken to ensure that the vaccines are safe (Report, August 31). It is 65 years since a “wonder drug” as a palliative to morning sickness in pregnant women was brought to the market, first in Germany where Grünenthal manufactured Contergan, and then in the UK where it was known principally as Thalidomide. The drug was not properly tested in Germany, and was not tested at all in the UK. Just look at the horrendous results - many thousands of teratogenic foetuses and live births. Lives and families were destroyed. Only the insistence of the late Dr Frances Kelsey at the US Food and Drug Administration that there had to be evidence of the safety of Thalidomide before approving it for sale prevented a catastrophe in that country. A disaster must not be born out of a mad rush for a Covid vaccine. JML Stone Honorary Advisor (retired) to the National Advisory Council of the Thalidomide Trust London W1, UK

  • Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13 In addition, And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17 The purpose of the helmet of salvation is to protect us from any outside attacks which tries to injure us in the area of our head. Now the head area represents our mind/intellect, or our imagination and thinking in addition to our emotions and will. In other words, we must be fully convinced of our salvation in the area of our thinking. Colossians 2:8 says: Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. In other words, if a man/woman is teaching you that salvation is through their philosophy instead of Jesus Christ Himself then that man is deceived and is deceiving you. Acts 4:12 says: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. This is the word for today.
