Re: Random covid-19 observations

On mRNA vaccines, which are many of the leading candidates: https://cen.acs.org/pharmaceuticals/vaccines/coronavirus-help-mRNA-DNA-vaccines/98/i14 There are no approved mRNA or DNA vaccines, and neither has ever been tested in a large-scale clinical trial for an infectious disease. https://blogs.sci...

Most entertaining conspiracy theory to date was that covid-19 was Jeffery Epstein's "dead man's switch".
