Manolis Kellis, a Computational Biology Professor at MIT took us all to school as he shared his screen to display what the virus genome looks like and how he and his team have been mapping the RNA of the Covid Virus. The Greek born Biologist spent time reviewing how this virus gets weaker as it mutates, expressed that people with antibodies are in a good place from a risk perspective, and detailed the different types of strategies for vaccines and cures.
The professor said that while we know what the enemy is, we are not at war yet. He explained that we are currently under siege, and that the war will begin when we return to work. Dr. Kellis shared his opinion saying that the trillion dollar bailout should have been a billion dollar spend on PPE. He called it, “Billion dollar wise and trillion dollar foolish.”
