“Smallpox is just one thing,“ I don’t know what you mean by “just one thing” (especially when you are trying to put words in my mouth / create a “straw man”) - so it’s hard to answer.
If you mean “one vaccine target not mutating over many centuries“ - yes.
“we have a 'cure'” : I never said we have a cure, yet another attempt to put words in my mouth.
As for “treatment” rather than “cure” : Work on Cidofovir and its analogue brinCidofovir started, though they never got FDA approval.
Tecovirimat: FDA approved.
“and its gone forever (apart from 2 declared labs (and maybe one alleged other lab at most))“
Never said that either. Official stocks are held in 2 labs (hey! You haven’t named the 3rd lab you said held stocks, and now your position has changed to “(and maybe one alleged other lab at most))“ - strange that!
A single case of smallpox anywhere in the world would be a global health There might be stocks not found / not destroyed (though I’d hope not!)
There might be “rogue actors”
There might be “rogue nations”
exhumed victims are a concern.
None if that is in contradiction to what I’ve posted .....
”Even if it isn't gone forever, we have the cure for the one virus which doesn't change/mutate”
more trying to get me to say that which I haven’t said. We have treatments, we have vaccine.
There are experts to rapidly identify any case, and (no doubt!) plans to isolate cases and contacts and ring-fence vaccinate. Some people can’t be vaccinated. There isn’t (currently!) enough vaccine to vaccinate the whole world. There are treatments.
That is what I’m happy to say, but never have I claimed “there is a cure”
If smallpox re-emerges, if it isn’t contained rapidly I’d expect a massive death toll, followed by a renewed eradication program, then a period of post-eradication surveillance.....
I’m after some help regarding my current circumstances. I’ve been going through mental health issues over the past few months. Which has led to me to work part time as this moment of time.
I have a debt of around 25k in personal
loans and 15k in credit cards. I’m in a position whereby I can not afford to pay anything towards these debts. What is the best solution towards this as I have to pay £550 towards the personal loans and around £300 for the credit card debts.
I would be grateful for your advice as this moment of time I am contemplating serious thoughts and I could do with some one that can help me find a way through this mess I am in.
I found a life insurance policy, so there’s money, I’d rather try and get a settlement figure and pay them out the policy than have them put a charge on the house. I just begrudge using the money to pay that shit instead of the mortgage.
Why are you requesting settlement figures on credit cards ? why are you engaging with them at all apart from sending a copy of the death certificate.
No estate = No money = no pay and then they will write them off..they have no other option....but you must not make payment from yourself not even the interest.
