During SARS i remember reading its usually the opposite, a virus that kills its infected host too quickly ends up extinct by its own hand because it doesnt get as much of a chance to spread to an uninfected host, so over time most viruses mutate to have less virulence and become less deadly because the deadly strains die off while the others live on by giving their hosts just mild symptoms.

That's a reasonable argument. Just change JC's theory a bit and go with "the longer it sticks around and more people it infects, the more likely that an additional viable strain gets cooking and we start again at the beginning".

That's true in terms of evolutionary theory but this virus isn't at the guaranteed deadly stage for all (yet, and hopefully never)....it’s never been that efficient at killing in a global sense but it’s been very efficient at spreading, causing symptoms and clogging up hospitals. There’s a slim chance it could mutate to be more deadly then your stage of the evolutionary process would come into play for that strain.

However, time is also relative....Ebola is mostly a death sentence and it’s coming back year on year so far.

The virus doesn't care about elections. Public health policies, and the willingness and diligence of the public in following them, make a difference. The only way the US election makes a difference is if it results in public policy changes ... and if the public chooses to follow them.

We have public policies in effect. I'm following them.

Yes sheep follow the news . Do not think for yourself .

People do all the time. Have you looked at some of the brands of brake pads available? Something is better than nothing. By your logic, it's Brembos or flintstone style, anything in between is a complete waste and should not be attempted.

Did you think why we have standards ? Even if it's a crap break pad it will still the minimum job if it meats a standard .It's because some items are useless . Just like home made masks . But you do you to do your part . Just because it's better then nothing great logic .

Keep spouting the conspiracy theories. How confident are you that the person behind you will be able to stop?

"While the federal government sets performance standards for brake systems in new vehicles, there are no government regulations covering replacement brake pads "

or if you prefer a Canadian reference

"There are no mandatory Canadian standards for replacement brake pads on vehicles "
