  1. If "a viral respiratory illness was first identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012" , it doesn't mean that before 2012 somewhere else there were no this viral infection. Simply, the science (with WHO) had not identified it before…and sure people could be infected even before 2012 and also die of it, having pulmonary parenchymal disease. Not all people know what kind of disease it is.
    The world's becoming more and more unhealthy because of bad food, terrible ecology, unhealthy sedentary life style so the immune system is getting weak…

  2. What they need to be doing is getting a vaccine for MERS/SARS/ COVID re-assortment possibilities as this DELTA variant is highly contagious and if it gets into MERS or SARS infected animals or humans and recombines genetic material, it could become the new "smallpox" of humanity with deadly and swift infections.

  3. electrolysis on sea water collect oxygen mix with water to form hydrogen peroxide release on bed of inland ;lakes triggering plant growth underwater and leading to a chain reaction of plant growth as more and more hydrogen peroxide would be produced eventually this would turn the carbonic acid back into water and release oxygen into the atmosphere at lake level. if copied at sea this may lead to an ice age via the chain reaction
