After the emergence of the Omicron strain in my country, the number of deaths/confirmations was 0.240%, and the number of deaths/infections was 0.035%. Vaccination, especially booster vaccination, is very protective.

"With any three doses of the vaccine, there was a substantial reduction in the risk of death, especially in older age groups. In addition, after vaccination, there was a significant reduction in sequelae including smell, taste, hearing impairment, and anxiety."

He also said, "Omicron infection is not terrible. 99% of infected people can fully recover within 7 to 10 days. Prevention of infection still needs to be implemented, but it should not be excessively 'preventive'. We must focus on self-protection and Ensure the protection of designated hospitals and medical staff.”

If I can’t understand contemporary art, is it because I’m not educated enough?

A banana taped to a wall is art, a can of artist poo is art, and a urinal from a chain store is art. Contemporary art is full of controversy, and many people shouted that they "do not understand".

However, "whether you can understand it" is not the most important thing, and "beautiful or not" is no longer the only criterion. The essence of contemporary art lies in creating dialogue.

After one conversation after another, it is up to you to decide whether you like the artwork or not, but you may eventually find that the thinking process may have been "worth the ticket price."

Apple car was exposed to a big downgrade: it may become the next iPhone only if it completely abandons subverting Tesla

Apple's car-making project "Project Titan" has always been ill-fated. The development of Apple Car has been in development for more than eight years. It is costly and ambitious, and it carries Apple's desire to obtain high profits outside the iPhone.

Apple's top market value symbolizes the prosperity of technology. Technology stocks have plummeted this year, and the top position was once occupied by Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company. The power of the "old money" is still strong, and the latecomers of the "new money" are eyeing – the fate of Apple Car determines the rise and fall of Apple in the next ten years.

Musk’s brain-computer interface company’s shady exposure, human experiments don’t repeat the tragedy

Last week, Elon Musk (Elon Musk) showed the outside world the latest developments in the Neuralink brain-computer interface.

Compared with the products of other peers, the Neuralink brain machine implanted on the head of Sake (the name of the test macaque) has not made much breakthrough in functionality.

But it is small, upgradeable, and replaceable, and it is infinitely close to mass-produced products on the market. It even joked (or seriously) at the communication meeting, "The advantage of miniaturization is that it seems that I have implanted a Neuralink now, and You don't even know."

Clearly support ChatGPT to kill the Internet content full of garbage | near future

ChatGPT, a chat robot that knows astronomy and geography, has screenshots of conversations spread throughout the Internet. It is incomplete if you haven’t chatted with it about Qin Huang, Han Wu, and the life of the new crown virus.

The profound significance of ChatGPT is that it raises the lower limit of all articles in the world.

Most of the articles flooding various channels are far inferior to ChatGPT in terms of accuracy, knowledge and logic. "As we all know", there are a lot of manpower on the Internet, either doing headline party, or producing hydrology, or concocting vulgar topics. According to Gary Illyes, a trend analyst at Google Webmaster, 60% of the content on the Internet is duplicated.
