Health Editor’s Note: I found this article, originally published by Undark.org, on strategies about how to use COVID-19 vaccines very, very informative and actually fascinating when I see how Mathematicians are modeling various scenarios on how to dispense vaccines in a way or ways that will work best to stop the COVID-19 pandemic. Who will be the first to get the vaccines? The answer may be surprising. Vaccination models look at the power of indirect protection of the most vulnerable by vaccinating those most responsible for spread. This makes perfect sense.
Now is a critical time for cooperation, calm, and clear thinking so we can rise above this pandemic. We will take back our lives. In the meantime stay physically distanced from those you do not live with, wear masks, over both nose and mouth, thoroughly wash you hands all the time, never touch your face, eyes, mouth, or nose without first washing your hands with lots of soap and water, stay home if you are ill, stay away from those who are ill, stay away from any size of group, skip the gatherings for Thanksgiving and possibly Christmas., because the coronavirus needs humans to survive. We can starve the virus by avoiding contracting it and not being a spreader. Physical distancing has great power to stop transmission of coronavirus. Just stop being cannon fodder for COVID-19…Carol
