Is this post non-Corona crap too?

GA 3,643 reported new cases.  2,600 hospital cases, up from a low of around 600 a month ago.  Deaths remain "low".  Temporary hospitals being revived after being closed.


I'm actually good with the light-hearted talk of rock drummers and such.  The debates about America belong on the other thread.

Deaths remaining "low" in Georgia is a good thing.  I think our medical workers have figured out some much-improved treatments compared to when this all began, and it's at least somewhat less lethal because of that.

I say we come together as one as a nation to defeat the coronavirus by banning all travel for eternity to/from China, revoking all Chinese nationals in the US visas and deporting them effective immediately, and bombing the Chinese into the stone age. Michael Bolton is with me.

Yep, based on the levels I had a month ago, I'm guessing they are no longer in me.

Another finding that antibody resistance may only last a few months.

The T cell thing might be important though.
again if antibodys only last a few months then there would be a whole lot of reinfections which there arent

I don't know that we know for sure. I'd certainly like to know. I was tested for the virus on 6/29 and I'm still waiting on results.

I've never been a fan of Quest Diagnostics. Even less so now.

The T cell thing might be operative.

As for reinfections, statistically, infections are rare.  If your chance of infection is say 1% in a month, your chance of a second reinfection would be 0.01% twice in a month.

And after the first infection, you might be more careful for a while, and you have some lingering resistance at worst.

U of Miami infectious disease doctor: “Miami is now the epicenter for the virus"

A group of Miami-area medical experts joined Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez on a Zoom news conference Monday morning and made clear that South Florida is in a dire position when it comes to the spread of COVID-19.

“Miami is now the epicenter for the virus,” said Lilian M. Abbo, M.D., an infectious diseases specialist at the University of Miami Health System and the Chief of Infection Prevention for Jackson Health System. “What we were seeing in Wuhan [China] five months ago, we’re now seeing here.”

The experts were speaking minutes after Florida announced 12,624 new cases of COVID-19 -- a day after Florida set a record for any state with 15,300 new cases.

The experts stressed the need to restrict large gatherings of people in indoor spaces, and Gimenez said the biggest thing that needs to be done is residents following the safety guidelines.


“The reason [for the spike] is us. There’s no Boogeyman. The reason is us,” he said. “We have to change our behavior. The no. 1 reason is our behavior.”

I would think that because you became infected in the first place your chance of a reinfection would be much higher then someone never infected 

your life style or demographics determine a lot of this

for there to be no reinfections among those previously infected is more then just chance

So is it time to do what China did?

Call in the troops and start hauling folks out of their homes to camps to die?

Well, nobody in Miami is covering anything up, including their faces. Hopefully that changes, along with not having big parties and not crowding the streets.

Kinda, but not really. All of these kids (and also some adults) are out, acting like there is no pandemic. Then, they get together with family/friends who are older and more susceptible to illness. That's the big problem.

The live music scene is going to die?

So you're saying I shouldn't move to Austin?

This is the worst thing about the whole close down thing. I haven't been out to see live music, when I usually go out at least once a week. Worst being relative to me and not the rest of the people. As they say first world problems.
