A positive COVID-19 update, as things are quickly getting better

May 17, 2021

New York City and a big part of the country are quickly coming back to almost normal, as case numbers, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 are quickly dropping. There is still some fear mongering going on, especially when it comes to the so-called new strains of the virus, which are now dominating. The good news, however, is the newest research data suggest that the immunity obtained from Pfeizer and Moderna vaccines are also protective against the new strains. That does not mean that the SARS-CoV-2 virus may not at some point mutate in a way that allows it to escape the antibody response created by those vaccines; but even if that were to be the case, as we now know through research on this virus, our cellular immune system also has long-term memory that can be effective in preventing infection and especially in keeping the severity of any infection limited. ...

Ethical concerns with IVF practive: II

Apr 15, 2021

The appropriate role of **profit incentives** on medical practice has been, and will remain for some time to come, the central theme in every discussion of national health care, - whatever the system. One would assume that profit motives in private systems would be more dominant than in more socialist health care systems; but that is not necessarily the case because profit motives exist in any societal structure. There, indeed, is good reason most cases of health care fraud usually involve government programs. ...
