There was mention of the rabbit disease on a podcast I heard recently. Rabbit hemorrhagic disease if it’s the same thing...not a new disease, but sounded like more cases in the US than previous years.

Thank you for the good recon, Dr. Doug.

Our county had the 4-H animal show online. Not sure exactly how they did it, but the kids still got to "show" their critters and get ribbons.

I read about the rabbit hemorrhagic disease awhile back, and subsequently noted that I've seen no rabbits at all this year. They're normally plentiful in our yard and throughout the neighborhood. Like many we're going out a lot less than normal, but I haven't even seen any rabbit roadkill. Unless there's been a major uptick in coyotes or other predators, which I don't think there has been, then I'm assuming it's probably the hemorrhagic disease.

Dr Doug,
Thanks for the info.
I get the feeling that a country’s citizens response to the pandemic is a reflection of that country’s success or failure in educating its citizens in science.

Or is it that large groups of people are just quick to rationalize why they don't need to follow intelligent advice, based on conspiracy/political bent/crazy theories....LOL! (I'm especially entertained by the "masks cause CO2 poisoning" group - really?? Every Doctor/nurse/medical assistant would be dead (eye roll)) The anti-vaxxers will be saying Rabbit Ebola came from the Covid Vaccine testing... oy....

It’s a free country and nobody can make me wear a mask if I don’t want to. This so-called pandemic is just a hoax made up by the fake news organizations and promoted by mask manufacturers. It’s way over blown. And, as a reminder, the earth is still FLAT!

And people will get brain damage if forced to breath air with less than 19% oxygen while wearing a mask despite the fact that above 2,000’ elevation the percent oxygen naturally drops below 19%.

WHEW - I'm so glad I live at 800'..... and as a flatlander, I can attest that there's ZERO oxygen (or so my body thinks) at 14,000 feet and above.

I’ve not been at 14,000’; I have skied the tops of A Basin and Breckinridge CO at 13,000’ and last summer we visited Independence Pass at 12,000’. The air is thin up there.

If you think the oxygen concentration at 19% wearing a mask is a problem, you'll really hate having to have 100% oxygen while in a COVID ward or on a vent.
