I would love to see data on 10,000 people tested that are a rep sample of the pop.

 I'm looking at the behavior of the stock market with some disbelief, I really don't understand it, which I suppose it not unusual.

Buy on rumor, sell on news?

I still haven't gotten my antibody test results back from a sample drawn on July 3.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

If North Georgia and East Tennessee had as much balls as West By God Virginia, there might be 4 more Senators right now.
You could put western North Carolina in there too.
It's easier to have balls when you are on the border of the free states/Union like the northwestern counties of Virginia were.  No shade on the Mountaineer State--it still took some gumption to make the break.
Some authors have speculated that the secession vote in N. Carolina--the last state to secede--might have gone differently had Virginia not already seceded, leaving NC surrounded by seceded states.
BTW, the Oklahoma governor--who has not been seen in public wearing a mask, who attended the Trump "rally" in Tulsa not wearing a mask, who has attended many meetings since that rally not wearing a mask--has now tested positive for COVID-19.  He proclaims himself to be surprised that he is the first governor to turn up positive.

I thought the whole theory behind wearing a mask is not to protect yourself but to keep you from infecting others

5.5% of the population of Iowa athletics tested regardless of symptoms since circa June 4 seems very high to me.



well, these are very active 18-24 year olds from all over the country and probably outside the US

probably not much different percentage than that of this age group in Miami or Houston

supposedly it's protects both to some extent
if worn properly and it's a proper mask

The figures I've seen that "looked" reliable were that wearing a mask would reduce the percentage those you infect by about a third.

Wearing it for a healthy person would reduce chance of infection by about 5%.

So, if you're contagious, and would normally have infected 3 people, it would be only 2 if you wore a mask in company.  The R naught I see is usually lower than 3 of course, more around 1.2, so wearing a mask would reduce it under 1.

This could well be the fastest a new vaccine has ever been widely employed.
