Someone will post ‘RIP Coronavirus’ in
the RIP of the day thread.
Some big ol' guesses to pass the time:
Testing will confirm that Covid-19 patients are no longer infectious in the decline phase... The virus is currently still detected for up to several weeks by tests but will be found to have been rendered inactive by antibodies. More accurate testing will be developed that will allow patients to be released from ICU/ isolation earlier.
Estimates on the timing and original location of the first transferal from animal to human are skewed because the virus had mutated back on itself in loops resembling earlier strains meaning it was spreading in Europe undetected in early December.
Viral testing will be required for all outbreaks of influenza-like illnesses in Schools, Hospitals, Care homes.
Serology testing will confirm antibody profiles which greatly increase the chance of serious illness/death (ie. if you've developed antibodies for certain viruses in the past you will be at far bigger risk of dying from lower respiratory issues/ cytokine storm when your immune system attempts to fight Covid-19)
This will develop in to serology tests being introduced for combinations of antibodies... combined with other tests for general immune maturity this will be the 3rd type of testing rolled out (after Covid-19 detection and Covid-19 antibody detection) to identify further at-risk patients who haven't yet had the disease. This will cause many people to isolate until a vaccine is available and we'll forget they exist except for occasional articles "How some are coping 1 year in to SARS-Cov2 isolation." ... They may be the only people to ever receive the vaccine.
Headlines like "a cold you had years ago may kill you yet" and further popularity of tests like the above will create a boom in 'immune fingerprinting' (i thought i just invented that term but its a thing) people will pay to send swabs to private testing companies to find out their infection risk and get an 'Ancestry DNA' style profile of diseases they have had (and may have not even realised) and sign up to alerts that notify them of their risk to new viruses. This may even end up as a credit-rating style service for immune defence.
Studies will show that mass chronic stress, lack of sleep and malnutrition caused by social distancing and isolation measures contributed to the ease of spread of the virus by lowering the immune response of the populous and in some individual cases made the difference between mild and severe symptoms.
Warm water antiviral rinsing therapy (drinking small sips of warm water (never cold!), every 15 minutes), is shown to not only prevent corona virus infection, but also proves to be effective against several forms of cancer, heart disease, shingles, stomach ache, the shivers, and sleep apnea.
As a proven medical therapy, the FDA swoops in to limit access to warm water for use by prescription only. In a massive crackdown on black market trade, they seize all teapots and hot plates, and make it illegal to leave cool water sitting in direct sunlight without visible icecubes floating in it.
Doesn't matter how the first and second tier countries of the world manage to deal with CORONAVIRUS2020, what does matter is what happens in the billions of unwashed masses in the third and fourth tier countries.
Second wave? pfft - try tenth.
2022: We're all dead.
- Watching what's happening in South Africa and India and by fuck if this isn't an obvious thing to moot, Probs not all actually dead in 2022. Just, most of us.Nairn
- Looking at CORONAVIRUS2020, I'm irritated they didn't name the disease COVID-20. Missed an opportunity there.
Brand cohesion, n'all that.Nairn
- yeah but wasn't it first noted in 2019? #pedantryliveshans_glib
Someone comes up with a news aggregator that filters out CORONAVIRUS2020 content. Becomes huge. Buys Pornhub, who'd recently bought Google.
2022: We're still all dying.
- I wish I'd stayed in digital and gotten better at programming and web stuff - I'd make a C-19 filtering news aggregator in a heartbeat.Nairn
- In fact, there's a germ of an idea - a news aggregating service that filters whatever Big Story you want. Royal Wedding? Nix. Inbound Comet? Nix.Nairn

The US Government will sue China over the Wuhan Virus.
Johan Renck will Director "Wuhan - The Virus" but critics will give it 1/2 a star less than his Chernobyl series in the reviews.
Boris will pass away on Easter Sunday.
India will one day win an Oscar for best picture.
2030 - Some sort of visual QR-code like easily machine readable graphics, printed on roads.
- Late 2030 - people hi-reflective paint hacking painted road codes.Nairn
- I think i have dementia.Nairn
- imagine roads have big qr codes painted on them at various points, your car drives over them and reads the code with a big scanner.shapesalad
- this then set the speed limit of the car so you can't break law.shapesalad
- Yeah, that's along the lines of what I was assuming - machine-readable road data for 'autonomous' cars to read, as they drive.Nairn
Boris Johnson will be treated with Hydroxychloroquine
and make a full recovery.
It's found that Forsythia is actually the cure for COVID-19 (aka The CCP Virus).
Biden will pick Hillary for VP running mate
Biden/Hillary will win the presidency
Biden will serve as president for a few months and then resign

We clamber out of filthy, sweat suit clad self-loathing sometime in August; A society already on the brink of implosion, when - for purely nominative reasons - Earth suffers a massive coronal mass ejection, wiping out all our higher-level technologies for years, before a third mutated spread of Coronavirus (C-20) finishes us off in a coup de grâce.
Rebirth of trance music, in a darker ambient wrapping
- TRANCE NEVER DIEDNairn
- any examples of something like it? i love the "darker ambient wrapping" angleKrassy

- I've heard the terms angelwave and glocore, which are both east europe-centric, I'm not sure if they are active, but I just call it trancedrgs
- tnx for sharing, drgsKrassy
The beginning of a new cold war with China which has actually already begun, which will eventually lead to World War 3 with China. I'm predicting and all out nuclear and military conflict somewhere in the 2021 timeframe.
Biden gets his own thread, and ... and, you know the thing.
- Biden is a boring old politician. Doubt anyone will give much of a fuck except for Fox News.inteliboy
- I can't wait for the news to be "boring" again. No atrocities, massive death toll brought on by incompetence, race baiting, daily deluge of corruption, etc.CyBrainX
