Because the fabric around the hay bale image has printed bottles of milk, I decided to
name “Hay . . . KYD#11” – “Cows . . . Got Milk and Plasma!” to remind us that Cows Help With COVID-19 Treatment, No Bull – You can read the entire article here; https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/06/17/877844458/cows-help-with-covid-19-treatment-no-bull
Briefly, it turns out, cows may play an important role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. These aren’t just any cows. They are cows that have been given genes from the human immune system that make antibodies. SAB Biotherapeutics is in the business of making what are known as polyclonal antibodies. These are a collection of different antibodies that a body makes to ward off a specific invading organism.
Why a cow? The antibodies circulate in the animals’ plasma, and you can get a lot of plasma from a cow – between 30 and 45 liters of plasma every month from each animal”.
But, while we are waiting for the cow stuff – wear a mask! Could it get any simpler – “Just Wear a Mask” – For now, it’s better than a vaccine that we don’t know when it will be ready to use. It’s so easy!
BEING REMEMBERED: On September 18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the age of 87 due to complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer. And although the Notorious RBG is no longer here, her inspiring work and words remain. “I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability.”
