What is "endemic"?
“a disease outbreak that is consistently present but limited to a particular region.” 'endemic' doesn't mean it is a mild disease; it just means that it is consistently present.
“The more unvaccinated people we have, the more it will spread.”

About this page

"Rewa" means "hope" in the Tibetan language. Here, it is summaries of things i find on the Web and Internet -- news and information websites, Twitter posts, Whatsapp groups -- that i have been using to keep myself informated about the COVID-19 disease, long-term effects, and general info about the pandemic world-wide.

And "asss usuallll ..." i end up putting it on the Web in case it is useful to others. It is a work in progress, and is rough so that it can be updated quickly and easily. It is not guaranteed to be accurate or up to date. Hopefully it is helpful.

I try to be clear where i am "quoting information directly from the source" or am using my own words. The titles of the sources are in italics. I try to keep up on when i the source or data and when it was or i something on this site.

Sometimes you will see a web address but it is not a clickable link. This is because i have just copy-pasted some information, and haven't made a proper link yet.
No worries - just triple-click (laptop/desktop) or hold-press (mobile), and select 'copy', and then paste into your browser address bar, and 'go'.

Accessing paywalled sites

I try to only link to content that is free and open to everyone. (You do not have to log in to view any Twitter posts.) Some websites do want you to register for free or get a paid account to view their content, but i saw that particular link as so useful that i added to this collection anyway.
No worries! If you have trouble viewing any of the links i have given, there are two ways to get to them:

  • go to the most excellent 12ft.io
    and paste the link you want to go to in the search box.
  • go to the most excellent Web.Archive.org
    and paste the link you want to go to in the search box.
    There you will have a choice of dates (these are all the dates they have retrieved that page). Just hover over on any one, then choose any snapshot, to see the page.

A small note

Somehow COVID information has gotten politicized and "opinionized" ... as has medical/health knowledge, and even pure information itself.
This is not that. "Rewa" is a collection of observed realities from people who study and experience those realities, compare and share them with others, cite reputable and professionally accepted sources, and use their critical thinking skills in all this.
Rewa is here for people who have that interest.
If the things in Rewa are not part of your realities, or not interesting to you, that is no problem whatsoever. This wide wonderful world contains many realities, and the World Wide Wonderful Web has millions, nay billions, of other interesting pages and information and views. Go thou and explore and share!
