By today, I’m very pleased to tell you all that I have fully vaccinated with two AZ shots.
As before, I elected to not take painkillers. At the same time, I have been informed of an open letter circulating around Reddit calling for more action to tackle rampant misinformation in relation to the pandemic.
Although I endorse and concur with the spirit behind the open letter, however I have to express a modicum of reservation based on the following two:
- Discussions about the accidental lab leak hypothesis, which has gained serious mainstream consideration, would be collaterally impacted. In fact, we are still in the dark on whether it is a result of natural crossover, or that of accidental lab leak.
- Any discussion about drugs or treatments that are still in preliminary stage of the research/development process or even haven’t started on it yet such as DRACO, EXO-CD24 and even those based on gene editing platforms like CRISPR and LEAPER might be collaterally affected.
I look forward to the authors of the letter in addressing my reservations. May the force be with you, always.
