Re: COVID-19 Virus

I'm one of those "optimists out there," but a 'knowledgable' one that understands the deadly nature of this SARS virus and its transfer abilities to others, especially in groups and with volume to support the transfer.

In all honesty, its just people that have been played with (lied to) politically and have come to the sad position that everything they have been told is fake and they have been out and about and haven't caught it! So, it's not there, not a problem. But, we know that it is out there and it is a problem. A very serious problem for those most likely effected by this SARS Virus.

Today, we are seeing a 'small' bump in the numbers! In the next five to ten days, the real rebound will hit and those numbers will likely make this 'bump' be little more than a prep-signal to the CDC and hospitals across this nation.

Be Safe!

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Hm. Well keeping in mind that I am in agreement that places are opening back up but this illness has NOT gone away... but wasn't at least Part of the idea, originally, that it's accepted we really can't stop it but the goal of lockdown was merely to SLOW the cases so they did not All hit the hospitals at Once and overwhelm all the healthcare systems?

-- that is, at least some of the info I was seeing in March, implied that the Number of Cases was gonna be the same either way, at whatever point restrictions get lifted, since due to the "novel" of the virus there will Not be vaccine in time to actually Lessen the Cases, and the actual goal simply was for Not All the cases to occur at the same time.

Which I kinda think may have been achieved?, or partially so?? ((Especially IF the states take the "out" which is implied in some of the re-openings, & IF cases Spike Excessively, then step it back down again. ))

Re: COVID-19 Virus

I suspect "quarantine fatigue" coupled with a slow re-opening of the economy has inoculated the populace to be more accepting of increasing illnesses and deaths. My hunch is some very cynical people have gambled that human psychology cannot process an enduring threat. Many harbor the false sense of "accomplishment" from quarantine and expect to be "rewarded" with renewed freedom. Time will tell just how shocking the second peak of the first wave becomes. A Harvard health expert predicts 100,000 additional deaths by September. Considering we have lost an estimated 115,000, relief is not in sight, nor have we established a risk vs reward tolerance.

Unfortunately the WHO has sparked confusion by issuing and clarifying conflicting mask usage and asymptomatic spreading guidelines.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Well with Florida going up 10,000 cases a day....
My brother got exposed st his job!! He did an estimate st their house on Tuesday, Thursday they contacted him to say they had covid!!! That means they knew they had already been tested but didn’t have results back yet , horrible person! My brother had to get tested, his results won’t come back till Friday!!! He has symptoms today.... add your prayers to mine that he recovers with no hospital or issues!

We don’t get the details of the other person, but since it takes time to get tested and get results, we think they had been tested for whatever reason but just hadn’t got their results back, but if you had a reason to be tested you are supposed to isolate until you get your results!! When he met with them they did not have symptoms that my brother was aware of.......

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Just awful, Laura. Hope your brother remains free of debilitating symptoms.

We're regressing in California - bars will be closing unless enclosed within restaurants. Consensus is spike of cases with younger folks, stable with 40 to 60 year old crowd, declining for seniors. All plans to relax constraints on hold until at least August 1.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

oh my, hope he is ok! Has the US not seen a substantial drop in cases? The UK is down in the hundreds per day and Scotland and Ireland havent had new cases in weeks. Our lockdown is being lifted daily it seems.
This could be the end of the 2nd wave for us, apparantly this has been in europe since November after sewage and water testing has shown. Hope it ends soon, cant wait to give my elderly mum and dad a big hug. Ive received a home test kit today, ill get it send of later but im sure I havent had it, but many people who are showing with antibodies are saying the same over here.

Major lifting of restrictions including partial set of school kids (my sons age, 14) and also pubs etc are opening on Saturday....... Im expecting to wake up next the ugliest woman on the planet on Sunday.

The U.S. has dramatically upgraded testing so yes, we have more positive cases. However the hospitalization rate is climbing and reaching capacity in many areas. We have not successfully tackled the first wave imo.

We are still well within the first wave of this virus as it migrates with our population. The twenty something group believe themselves to be unaffected and thus group together and then without concern visit their grandparents, etc... We have excellent examples of reopening in Michigan and just as sadly, groups that mingle without concern -- bang another hot-spot!

It depends on the testing. Emergency departments can do a rapid response test and have results immediately. I had a friend test and she got her results 24 hours later. Iím having a pre-surgery next month and the test is scheduled late on the Saturday before my Monday surgery. So donít assume they had been tested when he was there.
