    Within a day of testing positive for covid-19 in June, Miranda Kelly was sick enough to be scared. At 44, with diabetes and high blood pressure, Kelly, a certified nursing assistant, was having trouble breathing, symptoms serious enough to send her to the emergency room.

    When her husband, Joe, 46, fell ill with the virus, too, she really got worried, especially about their five teenagers at home: "I thought, 'I hope to God we don't wind up on ventilators. We have children. Who's going to raise these kids?"

    But the Kellys, who live in Seattle, had agreed just after their diagnoses to join a clinical trial at the nearby Fred Hutch cancer research center that's part of an international effort to test an antiviral treatment that could halt covid early in its course.

    By the next day, the couple were taking four pills, twice a day. Though they weren't told whether they had received an active medication or placebo, within a week, they said, their symptoms were better. Within two weeks, they had recovered.

    "I don't know if we got the treatment, but I kind of feel like we did," Miranda Kelly said. "To have all these underlying conditions, I felt like the recovery was very quick."

    The Kellys have a role in developing what could be the world's next chance to thwart covid: a short-term regimen of daily pills that can fight the virus early after diagnosis and conceivably prevent symptoms from developing after exposure.

    "Oral antivirals have the potential to not only curtail the duration of one's covid-19 syndrome, but also have the potential to limit transmission to people in your household if you are sick," said Timothy Sheahan, a virologist at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill who has helped pioneer these therapies.

    Antivirals are already essential treatments for other viral infections, including hepatitis C and HIV. One of the best known is Tamiflu, the widely prescribed pill that can shorten the duration of influenza and reduce the risk of hospitalization if given quickly.

    Did you watch the video? She did say exactly those words.

    Now, it is taken out of context of "if the doctor tells me to, yes but if Trump tells me"... but that was the sentence she spoke. Taken as a whole what she said was not just that, I agree. But just saying "She didn't say that" when you can hear her say those exact words in the video just makes it so folks don't want to listen to what you say anymore.

    I'd also say the same to the dude quoting out of context. You just can't rely on what was stated by someone that won't recognize the words that were spoken.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    Hmm I see my attempt doesn't work to calm you down.

    This is not about vaccines. This is not about anti-vaxxers. Now will you calm down? Now can you address the topic, that is the new treatment of Covid-19? What do you think about it? What is your opinion? Any comment on those patients not knowing if they took placebos?

    The only mental midget having a triggered breakdown over a question asked is you dipshit. Why are you so afraid of being honest and answering? Because you know you would sound like an idiot? Much like Evince?
    I already answered, dumbass.

    I never said it was your opinion. Why the flailing, dodging and nervous breakdown?
    And yet you kept shoving it on me since it isn't my opinion.

    Then why do you think they would not take a pill?
    Already answered. READ.
