I think it is more likely false negatives, the swab test used here in the UK seems only around 70% accurate. So they get treatment they get better but the virus isn't actually fully cleared from their system, the test doesn't pick up enough of a sample to test positive, they get sent home and the virus can then rebound.

At this stage I think that is what is most likely, but again it is still early days.

I thought you wanted to keep that part unknown for his privacy or whatever. Not that a large part of the U2 community knew perfectly well who you were talking about.

We are what? One month into this? Not since we’ve known about the virus, but states issuing orders to stay home

He yelled at the coronavirus last night, so it will go away soon. He thinks these war analogies make him look like he's Rambo.

He wants everyone to think he's a war time consigliere. He's not.

Guys, don’t want to ruin the ending but being born ends up in death.

Maybe not a covid19 death, but a different kind of death.

So, FEMA is, in a worst case scenario, projecting anywhere from 160m to 195m COVID-19 infections in America by the end of the year and anywhere from 200k to 300k deaths.

This means nothing by itself, because their methodology wasn't specified, but it gives further exposure to the theory that over half the population is bound to catch COVID-19 if they haven't already. This projection doesn't substantiate it, but more people will see it.

For what it's worth, that infection fatality rate (200000/160000000 or 300000/195000000) sits between 0.12 and 0.15. About the same as the flu.

The link to the slides is here:

The only comment I will make on this is the same one I have been for weeks: we need to ramp up serological testing now. Yesterday, really. It's the only way to find out who can go back to work and what measures need to be taken to protect everyone who can't.

I’m going to assume we won’t have massive testing until 2021.

I don’t know what it would take for Trump to move towards this effort.

Allowing the states to decide would mean about 2/3rds would ramp up, but without the remaining states we’d still be in a holding pattern.

Am i missing something in regards to a way out of this ? I can’t imagine stimulate the economy while we wait for a vaccine (i have my doubts one will be available in 12-18 months).

Everything I’ve read is massive testing, tracing, and social distancing continued to get people back to work.

I know that getting food delivery is a big thing right now and it helps to keep restaurants running. But is anyone else a little freaked out about this?

About a month ago, right before things got serious, I was in a restaurant and you could see into the kitchen. This guy was wearing gloves, but then rubbed his face, hair and behind his ears with his gloved hands, and then proceeded on to handle plates/food.

I left. And I haven't gotten any restaurant food since.

I could see maybe pizza, out of an oven, on a paddle, slid into box.... possibly.

But anyone else feel this way?

Respiratory viruses don't spread through food the way bacteria does because they require a hospitable setting in order to grow. If you eat coronavirus, it typically travels through your digestive system and dies. The only way you would get COVID-19 through food delivery is if you touched packaging and then your face, but even then, the transmissibility of the virus through surfaces is increasingly coming into question.

When I get takeout, I always sanitize the packaging and wash my hands.
