Some handy links regarding health

In light of what seems to be the increasing fear (of getting Covid-19) within the world, I've posted a list of links to videos and articles that can allay that fear.

This is only my initial compendium. No doubt there's many articles, videos and comments on social media that provide good information, that have not been listed below, but at least the following list is start.

Covid-19, herd immunity and common sense

There has been a LOT of talk in the media, various forums, twitter, etc, about "herd immunity" in regards to the corona virus pandemic.

The idea, basically, is that if enough people catch and subsequently become immune to the virus, the virus will "look around" for new hosts within the population, as some have suggested, and finding none available, recede and eventually die out.

That "looking around" suggests viruses are alive, seeking to reproduce like bacteria and fungi.

On the subject of Astrology

I was chatting with a friend who is currently studying an advanced level of Astrology.

She explained that, unlike the standard newspaper horoscope stuff, the Astrology she was studying was far more specific to each individual.

I asked, "yes, but isn't any reference to the stars, or planets still making victims of people to those influences?". Whereupon she replied, "no, they're influences, they don't dictate what we do", or words to that effect.
