  1. Not sure if this was discussed. Prob paywalled but I copied the first part of it https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/04/07/metro/massachusetts-launch-first-trial-japanese-covid-drug/ Three Massachusetts hospitals have received approval to launch the first US clinical trial of a Japanese flu drug that could be used to treat COVID-19, according to one doctor involved in the effort. The trial — which will take place at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester — was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration Tuesday. The small, randomized trial of the Japanese antiviral drug favipiravir will look to study its effectiveness as a treatment for patients infected with the coronavirus, according to doctors involved in the study. The Japanese government has touted the drug, known by the brand name Avigan, as a possible treatment for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Medical authorities in China have called the drug “clearly effective” in treating coronavirus patients after conducting two clinical trials.
  2. Do you know the name of the documentary/ where you saw it? I am interested in watching that
  3. I want to discuss how country music is the most popular. Lol.
  4. So the population density in SK is much higher than in the US but they are doing a much better job than the US at flattening the curve
  5. Yup. Dense clusters are more likely to get it. I would think death rate is linked to poverty due to things like diet, obesity, diabetes, smoking etc Genetics is probably a much tinier factor.
  6. This. Huge factor is wealth or lack thereof. As you mentioned, the poor have worse diets in general and worse access to quality healthcare. As Met-who-likes-herb states, it doesn’t target people based on wealth but the effects are worse if you look at economic background
  7. But can you believe their results/data?
  8. In Louisiana for example, African Americans (who tend to be poorer by far) make up 14% of the population but 41% of the deaths reported in that state.
  9. Many years ago I used this in a science lesson. I can’t recall what for...
  10. I have no problem with it although I don’t listen to most of it. Your sample size is not significant enough. Find me anything that says it is the top selling or most listened to Anything. This is long (7 minutes) but awesome to watch. https://youtu.be/eP88FUL7d_8 sorry to sidetrack from the happy Covid stuff
  11. What you and I enjoy or don’t enjoy doesn’t matter. Pop and hip hop are the most downloaded. Country is way down the list I tried to find stats for US for this year or 2019. Couldn't find any in the two minutes I searched. Few kids I teach listen to country. It’s all hip hop/rap
  12. Some superintendents are publicly saying they think we are done for the year in Mass.
  13. https://www.statista.com/statistics/442354/music-genres-preferred-consumers-usa/ https://www.statista.com/statistics/310746/share-music-album-sales-us-genre/
  14. We’ve been over this. It isn’t the most popular by a long shot. I’m not judging it but it isn’t
