Yikes. It’s the first day of spring term registration, first thing in the morning, and my genetics class is already full…plus I’m giving a few students permission to take it beyond capacity (I’m splitting all the labs to meet pandemic requirements).
Spring: all the anxiety and overwork of the fall, only with crappier weather. They better cure this pandemic soon, or I may keel over from the stress.
Oh, wait. Pandemics don’t happen anymore.
“Disease outbreaks don’t become pandemics” any more, said @sapinker in Enlightenment Now bc. “advances in biology … make it easier for the good guys to identify pathogens, invent antibiotics that overcome antibiotic resistance, and rapidly develop vaccines”

Well, if a Harvard Professor says so, it must be true.
