the long pole in the tent - vaccines

Last Update: July 14, 2020

As is more and more common, COVID 19 is so big a beast we can't get our lives unwrapped from it. Every day I hear about it so much, I get sick of it.

I am fortunate enough to live in Maryland USA. Our governor has adopted a "measured" approach to the pandemic. That is to say build a little, test a little and take actions one step at a time. That is exactly what this beast requires.

Some areas have opened theaters and other large meeting areas again. Due to recurrent outbreak spikes,.only too quickly, they end up with egg on their faces having to backtrack to a safe platform On the main course of events, rashness equals a spread of infection and the paralyzing threat of lawsuits. Too much caution also paralyzes people with social straitjacketing.

The general consensus is that the only ray of actual hope of a solution is the development of a proven and vetted vaccine. I can make predictions. They can, however be turned around in short order as not all the solution approaches have yet fallen in place. The latest from my perspective is first roll out in spring of 21 but not cemented until spring of 22. Yes, wait wise it isn't easy

. What are the interim solutions? For that we have to look at the current forays being made in the virtual event arena. It's more than just watching Netflix or parsing out Zoom sessions. I have to say that WA has developed, all unknowing, the perfect approach. With a worldwide virtual forum in place, the stellar approach that Kyle and Carson have taken is brilliant. Spinoff approaches to this brilliant and working strategy are imitated but I dare say, nothing comes close to what we have.

This is a lifesaver in a pandemic and one of the many resasons I am a WA member for life. As we forge on to the years ahead and successfully meet our challenges my greatest comfort is in knowing I am a member of this super winning team!

I would not believe unless a vaccine is tested on this virus. What will be structure the vaccine will target to. Per research it changes its structure so often. Only time will tell.
It is an unfortunate situation the earth is facing. Look at these empty high risers around the world with people now working from home. In Metro cities you are virtually locked in a 400-500 sq feet room one window closed most of the time with your blue light on all through the working hours.
I pray God to unwrap us from this situation to be outside without masks , sanitizers and what not to roam around HIS beautiful earth sooner than later.
But for now be safe and stay healthy.
Internet is a big boon to keep you alive everyday. Sure enough the The WA.

Instead of building a border wall to protect a gutted economy, priorities should be directed to quarantine walls

Good Morning Mike,

I would put the emphasis on proven. It needs years of testing before it is somehow safe.

You do not need to understand Dutch to be able to understand this text.

Just after I posted, I had a dental appointment. My dentist has a degree in epidemiology. The news is bad. This monster, on top of everything else, has morphing capability. i will now have to follow the CDC and WHO threads to learn of adaptive approaches.

Good Morning Mike,

That is why when a vaccine is coming on the market, so many are running to get a piece of that huge cake, it will be outdated.
The same with the flu shot. You get one for last year flu, but this year flu is different.The best is to keep your immune system strong, lots of C and vit. D3.

Let us stay healthy and hope for the best.

Yes, I agree. In times like these, having the WA platform to use is absolutely the best. We are fortunate.

Hi, Mike good to see you;

Folks get COVID fatigue for sure, and it is piling pressure in Governments in many jurisdictions, and weaknesses are exposed.

This is a pivot point in history, there are so many mixed messages which is the cause of so much angst.

It comes down to how you manage the situation and risk.

Doing nothing is not an option.

I agree with you whole heartily, if there was ever a time to be involved in online marketing it is now.

WA provides knowledge base training and resources to make things happen. The key is to make the most of the opportunity.

Hi Mike,
Really enjoyed your perspective and agree that WA is a godsend for many of us and especially so now.
So you are in Maryland and I am in CA. What's so interesting and worrisome is that every state has different mandates, testing is insufficient in most, and results from the testing take far too long. My 20 year-old nephew in CO found out one of his co-workers tested positive and he's been waiting eight days after being tested to find out the results. He's been feeling fine throughout and really needs the income from his construction job.
Too many mixed messages here in the US about what's safe/unsafe have led to a situation that's only going to get worse.

It's always great to hear from you Ingrid. I thought you were in NY State. I was hoping to go to a writers' digest meeting in Pasadena Oct 25. Unfortunately it looks like a virtualization even though they haven't made the determination yet!
