❓ Would you take the vaccine developed by Sinopharm, China, if it was available to you right now?
ℹ️ Key Info:
1. The Sinopharm vaccine uses inactivated coronavirus.
2. Inactivated virus vaccines have been in use for 100+ yrs. e.g. in a polio vaccine in the 1950s, and are the bases for vaccines against other diseases like rabies and hep-A.
3. Sinopharm did not disclose the size of its phase-3 trial or provide detailed info about any serious side effects.

If someone can't even figure out how to chat on the internet without centralized proprietary corporate platforms, then I have a hard time believing they hold a hacker ethos that prioritizes freedom or privacy.
IRC and Matrix exist. Defcon using Discord was the point I realized most US hacker culture today has no mission in the world anymore other than making money and being cool.
