    thanks for posting. My son is on a TNF blocker (Humira) and one of my first thoughts was that maybe people who take that could potentially have a reduced immune overreaction to the most serious stages of COVID19.

    My son is missing a dose right now, his Humira causes his neutrophils level (part of the White blood cells) to dip, and his doc always hates that, so we have to repeat labs to see if they came back up so he can continue his doses.

    I also found this article which seemed to wonder the same as my musings:

    “Therefore, the question arises as to whether patients with immune-mediated disorders on cytokine inhibitors represent a privileged group who are resistant to COVID-19 disease. Analysis of the cytokine profile characterising severe cases of COVID-19 suggests this assumption might be the case.”

    "It's possible someday that this 'invisible' approach could create new possibilities for data storage, biosensing, and vaccine applications that could improve how medical care is provided, particularly in the developing world," MIT professor and senior author Robert Langer said in the statement.

    Holy Crap!!! The MIT professor's middle name is Samuel. 6 letters for Robert, 6 Letters for Samuel, 6 letters for Langer. 666 :evil:- coincidence? I'm not so sure! :welcome:

    They're pushing it. All you gotta do is see the late night hosts getting ready for their "One World: Together at Home" deal with Female Gaga...

    There ARE genuine weirdo Nationalists that border on Nazi right now - I know of a few from personal contacts. That said, I expect anyone that wants to look out for their own nation's interests and reject a One World drive to be lumped together with the unsavories. It's worrying. I don't hate any people groups found in any other nations. I dislike their forms of government and other choices.
