    It's hardly surprising it's still spreading, I was in a line waiting for the bank to open 2 meter distance and women in front of me was facing towards me, she was not wearing a mask then she gave out a loud chesty cough, she just managed to put up her hand to cover her mouth. Then another women stood in between us, I said social distance madam, and some just laughed. until the guard made her go to the back of the line.

    But, unlike most seniors, many young folk brought it upon themselves.

    A good case for those who repeatedly insisted here and elsewhere that masks are of use ONLY for the infected (since disagreed with by most countries) to see why wearing a mask yourself can be a life saver.

    Reminds me of school ... but, seriously, if this woman is infected they have just given more chance of it being spread.

    Yahoo Life has an article from a study done be New England Journal of Medicine, dated July 8, of 2000 patients In Spain and Italy with Covid-19 that those with Type O Blood were slightly less susceptible to acquiring the disease while Blood Type A was higher.

    As I read some minor news items, the Philippines, though being far from science-illiterate, does not have the resources to support a lab and seek a Covid vaccine. It will however, supply test subjects (guinea pigs) for the vaccines of others. Probably the one under development by mainland China.
