The information you are hearing from your religious, business and/or political leaders
about the deadly viral pandemic
may or may not represent the actual evidence based understanding
of scientists and medical researchers who…
Know what the expletive they are talking about.
If viruses could be prayed away,
the pandemic would be over by now
If political will, sticking to your guns against popular opinion could persuade a virus
The pandemic would be over by now
If pool parties, getting back into the office and reopened restaurants was intimidating to a virus
The pandemic would be over by now
If we just took science seriously, if we just acted a little sooner or waited at home a little longer
The pandemic could be over by now
But instead
we may as well await the ringing of a bell and the voice from the street calling out…
Bring out your dead… bring out your dead
The only thing that may yet save us from the fate of death by ignorant and powers that be?
This Week in Science,
Coming Up Next…
Let’s start with some quick science news stories…
