Hi Dr Ron,Well the easiest part of your response is the question of the Africans.Covid 19 infects by attaching to human ACE receptor.We use ACE inhibitors to treat high blood pressure.It is well known that Africans don't respond to ACE inhibitors.So it is quite likely a genetic reason for their low rates of infection.
Secondly you quote 1 virologist who is an NBC Science reporter,Also don't mention where he works-the lefties will go beserk. Fair is a senior fellow at The Scowcroft Institute at the George Bush School of International Affairs, Texas A&M University.

Sorry mate I have a full house and you have only Ace high.
I'd say the question of genetics versus anti-malaria drugs for Africans is still up in the air - but will be made clearer when the tallies are made up of whether African American are hospitalised and die at a minuscule rates compared to Caucasians in teh USA, or whether that occurs at the same rate.
Not sure you can consider it to have Trumped me by citing Dr Fair's current senior fellowship, when I've Trumped you by citing him because he reports for one of the most Anti-Trump news networks in America.

If we're going to spend ever more time indoors, we need to at least let the sun shine in
