The results of this Stanford University study appear to confirm what was already speculated: A large percentage of people that get infected with the virus either experience no symptoms, or symptoms light enough that they don't report it.

"California county's antibody study suggests 50-80 times more cases than official tally"

https://www.theblaze.com/news/new-stanford-antibody-study-suggests-50-80-times-more-cases-than-official-tally

Which is important (in that it lowers the overall fatality rate) but of course it doesn't change the fact that if you are one of the unlucky ones who does experience severe symptoms, it can go very badly.

It's crazy how it affects some so severely and others not at all. It kind of makes me wonder: I still don't think this is likely, but remember the chaos we had at the hospital a month ago? That affected us all differently, the severity on a scale of 1-10 for each family member was something like

Me: 3
Wife: didn't get sick although felt off/weird
4yr: 7
Baby: 9

So strange. We really need to get more data from rapid testing for the virus and antibodies.

From what I've read, the days an infected person is most contagious tend (on average) to be the 2 days before you feel any symptoms, as well as the first day of symptoms.



Wasn't just "freedom" you were spreading there Travis buddy.

Supposedly in North Korea now:

https://www.newsweek.com/coronavirus-latest-north-korea-confirmed-cases-infections-world-health-organization-1498909

Sounds like officials are still denying it, and this reporting is based on a citizen (with a radio transmitter or something?) allegedly getting the word out:

Quote
North Korean government officials have reportedly been holding lectures to educate residents about the virus, claiming the country had the fewest number of COVID-19 cases in the world. That's according to a resident of North Korea's Ryanggang province in the north of the country, who spoke to Radio Free Asia (RFA) on condition of anonymity.

Interesting if true: I'd been wondering if the most security paranoid country with militarized border control and totalitarian domination of its populace might actually be able to prevent the virus from entering the country.

Something perhaps for our various pundits to consider when they blather about how it could have been kept out of the United States, "if only…"

Wasn't just "freedom" you were spreading there Travis buddy.

Here's an apparently real example of someone who didn't take this seriously enough, and likely got sick because of that attitude. The original post was still public on the guy's profile as of a day or two ago (I saw it), but apparently it's been taken down (or is no longer public). As his profile was public, including comments including information about his passing, people were saying nasty stuff about him, his previous comments about the lockdown, etc., so I imagine that's why it was removed and/or his account was disabled.

"If what I'm hearing is true, that DeWine has ordered all bars and restaurants to be closed, I say BULLSHIT! He doesn't have that authority. If you are paranoid about getting sick just don't go out. It shouldn't keep those of us from living our lives. The madness has to stop."

It's definitely keeping him from living his life. :oops:

I can't believe state governments are caving to these protesting dipshits. And even more, I can't believe these protesting dipshits are stupid enough to think that increasing public activity is a good idea, when numbers have not dropped enough.

It's too bad this shit is as communicable as it is. If the dumbest among us got out and gave it to each other and they died without giving to those of us smart enough NOT to do that shit, then perhaps the national IQ would go up a few points once the dead brain cells get biopsied so to speak. ::)

My god damn motherfucking asshole dumb shit governor is talking about reopening restaurants and theaters in the next 10 days. :frustration: I'm wondering... had that nefarious cunt Stacey Abrams been elected, perhaps she would've had bigger BALLS than Brainless Brian Kemp to NOT do foolish shit like that.

Definitely a hard problem.





My god damn motherfucking asshole dumb shit governor is talking about reopening restaurants and theaters in the next 10 days.

Opening theaters sounds crazy.

Restaurants could perhaps be safely reopened with enough spacing between tables, but they may have to rethink their HVAC airflow:


https://twitter.com/zeynep/status/1251556084424347649

(Although as someone pointed out in the comments: "Study doesn't even try to claim that A2-5, who were family of A1, were infected at the restaurant. Reading carefully it's one person infected as many as 5 but as few as 2.")
