    Round 2

    Malasysia's pretty good, they had a country wide lockdown, about ~10 days away from finishing Covid19, sooner, if they hadn't missed a cluster.

    Mexico? No.

    San Jose? No, I get that California is doing its best, but Republicans never did quarantine, and they're in the same sinking ship as the nutjobs that watch Fox News.

    If you have supply problems, don't order from unreliable suppliers. Round 2 is coming up for the USA, but not for most of the rest of the world.

    Thailand has 3 cases today, USA had 25000

    How do you defeat Covid 19?

    Face masks, quarantine, and hand washing. It's totally trivial to win against this virus. Most of the world already did. Asia has, mainland Europe is nearly there too.

    UK can easily follow by doing the same.

    "Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said one new case was a Thai housewife aged 59 in the southern border province of Yala. She was diagnosed after a pre-emptive test and found to have been in close contact with a previous patient who returned from Malaysia. She had no symptoms."

    "The two other new cases were Thai men, workers aged 46 and 51, who returned from Kazakhstan last Saturday and were brought to quarantine right away. They boarded a plane that carried 55 passengers and all the other returnees were already quarantined, Dr Taweesilp said."

    "Dr Taweesilp said that the number of provinces free of new Covid-19 cases over the past 28 days has now risen to 39. New entries included Chiang Mai, Chaiyaphum, Lampang, Phitsanulok and Trang."

    That could be you.

      How do you defeat Covid 19? - the same way we deal with its relatives, building the ability to quickly test for the virus and it's antibodies , and generate a vaccine that anyone can get in a second or two regardless of their financial status.

      We're a little while from this point but the evidence suggests that we're going to get there. Like the flu, it may mutate slightly to a different strain but we're been dealing wit the flu doing that for years now.

      Essentially it will be defeated if countries decide to stop shouting at each other and simply work together to maintain vaccines to keep people healthy, even if they are idiots - if we had a vaccine today I would give it to Trump and Boris to stop them from infecting Biden and Starmer.
