People in AZ who were tested July 7th still don't have results back.

On the overhead highway signs, it says "If you feel ill, stay home"....for a virus that's around 70% asymptomatic.  Seriously, a dumber message couldn't be posted.
Why is that a dumb message?  Do you think folks who feel ill should get up and go out and about?

I don't think the asymptomatic rate is 70%, but maybe it is.  There also is presymptomatic.  

Our neighbor got tested day before yesterday and expects results today.  He said the testing facility was crowded.  I'm not sure why he got tested.

I don't plan on getting tested except that apparently I will have to before surgery, whenever that is scheduled.  The wife is in the same boat.

I won't be able to drive the car for a week or so unless she shifts.

Might want to stagger these surgeries.

We have very very few contacts in a week where transmission is even somewhat possible.

132,800 known active cases in GA out of 10.6 million residents.

 Curious, do we actually know what % of cases are asymptomatic?   And how does that compare to other communicable viruses?
i have done a bit of searching but can’t find much.  
 Intuitively, doesn’t it seem odd that such a high number of cases are asymptomatic?

Have any of you knuckleheads gotten tested for the China virus or antibodies? If not, WHY not??
I have not


I have no reason to suspect I have or had the virus

I have no reason to think I've even come in contact with anyone that has had the virus
I could waste a test, but why would I?

I did get tested for the virus, not antibodies. 

I had something that required being around a large group of people and later had to get on a plane. Came back nice and negative. Haven't taken it again. Maybe I should.

We don't know, I don't think we could know, without testing a rep sample of the population with a reliable test.  I imagine the term includes people who have mild symptoms and they don't think it's anything.  We all have a day sometimes where we don't quite feel good.  IF the percentage was say 50%, I'd guess that's close, probably not 70%, but it's possible.  Other viruses generally produce symptoms quickly, that is one of the issues with this one.  And of course many virii don't produce symptoms in anyone ever.  I imagine we are assaulted daily with virii that simply don't infect humans, the ones that are not zoonotic.

This cytokine explosion event is fascinating to me, and unusual apparently.

As for being tested, I don't see the point, for me personally.  You can test negative and catch it on the way home from the test, for one thing.

If I were in any sort of medium or high risk environment, I would be tested.  And there is some chance of a false positive, or a screw up with the test.  I imagine "they" geared up with hastily trained test givers and folks collecting samples and tracking them, I can see ample chance of simple confusion, mislabeling, lost samples, etc.

I have to get tested again, or I won't be allowed to get the checkup of the lower things. So test, then 3 days of quarantine before the procedure.

I haven't shown symptoms and haven't been around anyone symptomatic nor who had a positive test. So I don't see the need.

so a tropical storm is hitting south Texas right in the middle of a hot spot

any theories on whether this is a good or bad thing for fighting the virus

the storm is not bad enough to cause a big use of public shelters

it will be interesting to see what affect it has

We walked out to get a bite, about five blocks to this Mexican kinda place that moved from down the street, it's not bad.  They don't have their liquor license yet so you get a free one for dining.  We were sitting on their patio that is covered and a fairly impressive southern thunderstorm moved in.  It was kinda fun to watch.  We finally decided to brave the rain and I told the wife it would stop just as we got back to our place.

Yup.

It's not bad, nice new place, nice patio.

Tell me I'm wrong.
Tell us all how Trump having the Covid-19 numbers is going to yield honest reporting out, since he's taken them over from the CDC.  Expound on his transparency and honesty, especially concerning this topic. 
any more political crap and I will ask that you be banned

Your wrong.  Now take your hate somewhere else.  

it has precluded you from rational thought, and you sound like a complete ass.
