I'm having some trouble following this convoluted plot.

Natural immunity to a virus with multiple variants which is anyway about to go extinct any second now?

It's a plot that doesn't know whether to shit or go blind.

The plot is motivated verbiage. It doesn't involve reasoning. This new "alternate fact" about the world has to be this way, or else the rest of the plot will start to fall apart. Think about what life must be like for someone always teetering on the brink of decompensation over a lie lived for too many years, defended with everything a limited intellect can bring to bear.

How much trouble would it have been to find the actual fact, and just not post a nonsense based on "alternate facts"? Not in terms of legwork, but in terms of having to come up with something that could not be instantly debunked.

It's been 3 months now since my previous post and SARS-Cov2 is still around and going strong. Still no evidence it's going to go extinct.

It's just God testing your faith. Kinda like dinosaur bones.

The only remedy for this is for you to post more often! :cheers:
