  1. Alright, we have a community that seems to have a strong resilience to the virus, low contagion rate considering their population. ¿What do we know about it? ¿What is their culture, how do they live? That's the point to mention cultural beliefs here, because it gives us information about their way of life and how they interact with the world around them. This was vital in the case of Jenner's smallpox. Farmers don't get smallpox, ¿Why, how do they live, what kind of interaction with the world around them do they have? This information allows to select the posible CORONA reservoirs,
  2. No, you're missing the point. They believe their karma and prayers protects them, wich in turn they decide to ignore the proper sanitary measures and still show a low contagion rate. The thing here is that it's not their prayers or the karma, much like the cows with the farmers, it could be the reservoir that creates a strong resilience to the virus. Let's take cultural beliefs as just variables. Toss religion aside, the reason they decide to ignore the sanitary measures could be anything else.
  3. Research the highest human-animal connvivance species in this regions. Based on their connvivance, take the possible CORONA hosts and expose them to the virus via inoculation. Taking again the goats example: have two of them directly inoculated, while two other just keep them in close connvivance with the inoculated ones to asses the possible contagion.
  4. The same as Jenner's. The reservoir is in direct and constant connvivance with the people. For the Cowpox it was the farmers who where in direct contact with the cows that noticed they weren't being affected of smallpox that severely, yet, they didn't knew the cause of it until Edward came with his research. Same could be the case in here. Indonesian people, mostly islam believers attribute their high resilience to the COVID-19 to their prayers, wich they also perform in high clusters of people gathered in one place. This could potentially mean that the reservoir is in direct connvivance
  5. I agree that the numbers given the evidence and context of indonesia specifically, cannot be trusted.
  6. No, at least not from the medical and authority point of view. But from the people's reaction it might. Indonesia's main religion is Islam, they gather in large numbers and pray; they also refuse to pray in home. Acording to them, it is their prayers and good karma that keeps them safe, wich at some degree shows that the people is positive about not having that many infected. Also, theres what Dr Hadisoemarto said wich is in the Aljazeera Article: The truth is no one can explain what is happening in Bali. It's very interesting, and someone needs to go there and do the research because it could
  7. While reading The Modern Prometheus the other day, a specific passage got my attention; the one where Frankenstein meets two of his college teachers, the one being Krempe who told him to discard all of the ancient natural philosophy knowlegde he had, and rather gaze to modern forms of it. The other, professor Waldman, who instead tells Frakenstein not to discard said knowledge at all, for that is the base and core of everything we've achieved so far. Then, a specific person came to my mind: Edward Jenner. Called by many "The father of inmunology". Of course, he comes to mind in regards of
