Very cool post! Thanks for coming here and sharing what you've been up to. I think what you're doing in the lab searching for antivirals is some of the most important work any human can be doing right now and I salute you for it. The vaccines have done a lot but there's more that can be done to treat it to minimize health impact and spread.
At the start of the pandemic I really hoped that it would spur a large allocation of resources into virology. So many people want to return to the status quo and forget that I'm not sure how much this has happened yet. There's obviously a lot of incentive though, for society at large. Thank you for doing what you can to help all of us.
