Well, my son’s mom is a confirmed case. We share 50/50 custody so I’m pretty sure I’ll have it too via my son and drop offs.

Assume you’ll need to go into 14 day Q.

My ex had to do the same since a few of her coworkers tested positive.

She said she had a cough for about five days and felt a little off. But she didn’t meet the testing standards so who knows.

We’re both hoping she got it and beat it

Good luck Mikal

Thanks. Yep my son and I both are in 14 day quarantine. I’m lucky enough to work from home and don’t have a loss of income but still scary.

Hang in there, Mikal. Don't let anxiety about possibly getting it steal your life from you; I've been living in that frame of mind for over a month now and once you've taken every precaution it's not worth the stress.

A teacher i respect very much told me

Viruses spread, but fear doesn’t have to. We have no control over a virus and our overall health. We do have control over our mind and allowing emotions to arise and pass, but it takes work.

Everyone stay safe

I hope no one gets sick, but if anyone does ,
I would recommend discussing this with your doctor.

I love this. The psychological fallout of the virus and quarantine has gone somewhat overlooked. I hang out on the anxiety subreddit and it has been a great comfort to me because they go out of their way to only post sourced stories and take positive slants whenever possible.

Is there any reason not to feel good about this development?

More “striking” evidence has emerged that the BCG vaccine given to counter TB may provide protection against Covid-19 and significantly reduce death rates in countries with high levels of vaccination.

A study of 178 countries by an Irish medical consultant working with epidemiologists at the University of Texas in Houston shows countries with vaccination programmes – including Ireland – have far fewer coronavirus cases by a factor 10, compared to where BCG programmes are no longer deployed.

This translates into a death rate up to 20-times less, according to urologist Paul Hegarty of the Mater Hospital, Dublin.

Their “correlation” study, expected to be published shortly by PLOS journal, is largely a statistical one and comes with caveats because of possibility of confounding factors. But it is more comprehensive than an initial one conducted in New York, which prompted a scaling up of clinical trials on people with Covid-19.

To reduce the possibility of error, the researchers re-evaluated cases during the course of the pandemic and made country-by-country comparisons including between Ireland and the UK, Mr Hegarty said. “We did not expect to see such a marked difference.”

“Over the 15 days, incidence of Covid-19 was 38 per million in countries with BCG vaccination whereas the incidence of Covid-19 was 358 per million in the absence of such a programme. The death rate was 4.28 per million in countries with BCG programmes and 40 per million in countries without such a programme,” he added.
Sounds like the foundation for a more targeted coronavirus vaccine, or possibly a relatively cheap and safe booster in the event of a second wave.

I’m hopeful for antivirals in the next few months to give us some protection going into summer and fall.

Otherwise we really are waiting on the virus to run out of hosts and the vaccine.

There is a lot to be hopeful about. This too shall pass, and what can we control? Our reaction to each moment. Equanimity is a powerful tool.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes.

It's crazy how this all made it even more real than it was before. I woke up a little stuffy today but nothing I would even think about if the pandemic wasn't going on, so I'm monitoring things closely. I get allergies this time of the year too so who knows?

Really interesting and may explain why Eastern Europe hasn't been a total shit show.

I got the BCG vaccine as a child.

mikal - stay safe, fingers crossed for you. The first days will be the worst with anticipation, hope you can occupy your mind somehow.

To actually think that the impeachment was worse than 11k people dying is beyond comprehension.



The cruelty of some drumph supporters!

Good Luck, mikal, for you and your family. Hopefully you won't get it, or the mildest case possible !

Other countries like Italy and Spain saw similar results.

I don’t think we’ll truly know the scale of death for a while.

It’s a concern of mine knowing that i live alone, don’t really have anyone close to me that i interact with. If i were to get sick and have trouble breathing, moving, etc....i better hope my dog can bark to 911
