    How does the viral protean know where to start up again after it stops? My hypothesis': • The viral RNA is so short that enough viable copies will be made even if many non-viable copies occur due to random stops and starts. • The nucleotides in the tail of transcribed RNA hanging off the viral protean will match segments of the viral RNA, ensuring it starts where it left off. • There is an RNA code for "OK to stop or start here" which the viral protean attaches to when it starts transcribing. If anyone knows the right answer or if you have other guesses, please reply. Thanks so much!

    But how do we know that messing up these abilities to replicate viruses won’t mess up our ability to replicate our own cells? We do have a fairly bad track record to replicate or use something that we think is “better” only to find out that it is worse maybe not just for us but also the environment.

    "...less useful traits..." Wouldn't those "weakened" variants actually have an advantage compared to more dangerous ones? After all, the less sick the host gets, the more likely he is to spent time around other potential hosts.

      It depends. If a variant is highly transmissible or has a longer incubation period or something that can make up - evolutionarily speaking - for making hosts sicker.

    It doesn’t just “escape” being detected by your immune system. Since people are injected with instructions to make antigen specific antibodies .. the body will be overwhelmed in these very specific antibodies and lower in natural non-specific antibodies (that can learn to target any foreign protein). A new variant will overwhelm your immune system if there is even one antigen that is “different” than what you were vaccinated with and this could lead to greater loss of life within the vaccinated population. There were warnings from scientists about the dangers of using this vaccine in the midst of a new pandemic for this very reason (of creating dangerous variants) .. I guess we won’t know how right they may be for a few months to a year.

    As a point of interest, our own genomes engage in recombination fairly often. In fact, it is crucial to the survival of most species. The story actually begins before we ever knew of such a thing, in the dawn of genetics (a "real thing" since 1905). From an e-book I wrote a few years ago...

    "We don't sequence the genome from every sample" um we do in Australia! That way every time we get a case in the community, we can identify how it got into the country very quickly, cause we will already have it's genetic code on file, which means our contact tracing is more effective, since it can work on upstream & downstream contacts simultaneously to find the connections & any other possible cases we've missed. It's part of how we eliminate it so quickly each time it escapes quarantine & gets back into the country (2 cases of this in the last 2 days in 2 different states, both of which are expected to be eliminated again without the need for any lockdowns or increased restrictions)

Then tell me which industry needs special privilege to not have any responsibility for their own products and are immune from prosecution by law (I believe in all westerns countries and states) for any damage their products can cause?

    ..scientists don't sequence every single virus-sample is an understatement.. US sequences less than 0,4% of positive tests.... www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/02/us-rushes-fill-void-viral-sequencing-worrisome-coronavirus-variants-spread. To be more accurate - you might wanna just say something more like: Scientists only sequence a small fraction of all tests so there will DEFINETLY be some things happening that don't recorded, as in, that's pretty much given.

    Hey Scishow, can I ask you not to use the term 'masking' in relation to wearing a face mask? The neurodivergent community is using that word to communicate our struggles in hiding our neurodivergent traits in an attempt to fit in a world that doesn't accept those traits, and losing that word would make it difficult to talk about our experiences. Thanks for all you do

      unfortunately use of language is not something that is likely to be within your control, so probably best to try to develop a new term. Happy people weren't happy when they lost the use of one of their descriptive words to a subsection of society, camp people lost the use of their word to the same group, these things just happen as language evolves - literally (which used to mean what I just used it to mean here)

    This is the best news I've heard in a while... It is also the worst news I've heard in a while... I truly believe that after this year we as a species will better off for future viruses that could be even worse except now with all we will have learned over the past year just may eventually save us from something even worse down the road.

    I suspect we will emerge from this whole thing with remarkable breakthroughs in medical technology. Is it true that the annual flu is basically a degenerated form of the 1918 pandemic? If we develop abilities to hamper a virus's very ability to reproduce all together, perhaps we could eradicate both SARS-COV-2 and H1N1.

      It already has. Why do you think there are suddenly so many Karens? Surely the consumerist "customer always right" lifestyles of first worlders in a country with poor education wouldn't explain so many self-entitled pricks that suddenly don't know basic germ theory. Right?

    it's reminding you that, you don't know what you think you know, so stop trying to know. also maybe they can put the effort into eradicating poverty and cancerous food people eat daily but there's no profit in that sadly.

    Just as it happened in the 1918 influenza pandemic caused by the H1N1 influenza A virus, so does it happen now with the coronavirus and its mutations-it is science saving lives, not pseudoscience, prayers, and conspiracy theories. 💕 ☮ 🌎 🌌

    Recombination in a nutshell: when two corona-viruses love each other very much (or happen to be in the same place for a mutual goal for an extended period of time), they decide that they would like to share genetic material and make a copy of themselves that share their best qualities (or as it usually happens, a random set of of there qualities), and they send their clone off into the world, and then it's survival of the fittest

    EMF and tinnitusI have noticed a following health disturbing phenomenon. Every day 5G LTE MIMO beamforming makes tinnitus in the ears. Especially in the mornings and afternoon. A standard metal caliper measuring tool is able to tune frequencies to a quarter of their wavelength (i.e. peak of power) and thus whining tinnitus noise at different frequencies in the ears. The transmitter's tinnitus noise can also be heard by turning the metal caliber perpendicular to the transmitter.The peak of a wavelet tinnes because it has a peak of the wavelengths energy. 1. Use the metal caliper measuring tool to apply the horizontal direction to its long side toward the transmitter (tinnitus increases or decreases), 2. Direct the elevation angle toward the transmitter (tinnitus increases or decreases). 3. The spatial peak power field you can search for a place in space in the north, east, south, west, and elevation in about 0.5 m3 (tinnitus increases or decreases) 4. The forks of the caliper are vertically or laterally usually vertically. 5. Then just tune in to 1/4 wavelengths and listen to different types of tinnitus. 6. The prongs of the caliper should be held, for example, with the left hand, the index finger on the front fork and the thumb held on the back fork while listening. The tinnitus frequency X is calculated as follows of the highest tinnitus found. Speed ​​of light / wavelength = frequency (hz) speed of light = 2779724588 m / s = 27797245800 cm / s wavelength = measure obtained with a caliper * 4 or 29972945800 / (4 * found dimension (cm)) = X hz This may only work for those who already have tinnitus. One theoretical possibility could be that 5G waves harmonize with other wavelengths to produce tinnitus. I CHALLENGE EVERYONE TO TRY AND FINE TUNE! WORKS !! Measures to try: 8.516 cm to 7.807 cm 3G frequencies 880 to 960 MHz approx. 7,270 - 2,285 cm and approx. 6.8 cm secondary aviation radar 8.8 - 7.8 cm lower 5G frequency range 3.4 -3.8 ghz LTE 0.746 to 0.682 mm 5G 25Ghz frequency range 2.99 - 2.78 cm 4G LTE 3.90 - 3.455 cm 4G 2.1 Ghz 8.68 - 8.58 cm remotely readable electricity meter Frequency bands might vary in between the countries and might not work for your country! ,,

    It's a good thing that the first new virus the world has faced has been a pretty wimpy one, and that we have the tools to fight it and win, potentially. The last few chapters of Rats, Lice, and History paint a picture of true horror as the monster diseases of the past rampage uncontrollably. Imagine that awful marriage of typhus and plague, a virus and a bacteria hitting everywhere in a one two punch of oh god no. Corona gives me hope for the future.

    COVID makes less sense the more I hear. I’ve personally known a dozen older, unhealthy folks with various pre-existing conditions that all faired just fine with zero hospitalization. The 1000lb woman on that A&E show was in hospital for only 2 weeks. But somehow 500000+ have died in the US. Is COVID a hoax, no. Is something not right, absolutely. Too much doesn’t make any sense. I feel like the more we learn, the less we know.
