We’ll say it again; Stop using SARS-CoV2 as an excuse to be racist!
SARS-CoV2 is the virus that causes Covid-19; perhaps better known as the “Coronavirus”. Much like a noxious, parasitic weed, the Coronavirus has had both serious direct and indirect ramifications that have managed to worm roots into even the most remote of places across the globe. The direct consequences of course include those who have contracted either a mild or serious form of this virus and of course those who have since perished. The indirect consequences however appear to keep manifesting as the world adjusts to such a pandemic. Perhaps the most controversial consequence of Covid-19 is the racism and conspiracies directed toward China. Please, if you don’t want your racist or idiotic theories and claims debunked by science, I urge you to stop reading.

oh! how the wind blows in this New World. howling like a dog in heat and They’ll call it brave. tree lines receding
The Climate Cheshire Cat
Breathe as the world breathes. Stand defiant in the hail only to fall in the flood. Hear them bicker hands pressed on ears
Untaught Lessons in Science Research.
If you were to ask anyone who knows me, they’d tell you that I was always going to be a scientist. There was never any doubt in my mind that it was the only career path for me. A career in science research is a career that works in the unknown, a career that literally keeps you on your feet, and a career that occupies and challenges the mind. ‘Perfect!’ I would think, as I worked my through my Medicinal Chemistry degree and multiple research internships. Now full disclaimer here, I love my work and I wouldn’t change a thing if I had the chance to, but I’ve certainly encountered some things that they don’t teach you at university.
