Not sure if they (CVS) were just overwhelmed or there was a problem with their website- but in addition to getting her a test yesterday, I jumped on this morning and easily scheduled one for myself today.  Choice of times. 

When she got hers yesterday they told her 5 days for results, although the website says 6-14, and local people I have spoken to said it took 2 weeks.  So... we will see. 

She is much improved today- eating and running around the house cleaning like there’s no tomorrow 😊

Georgia has leveled off on new cases for about two weeks now.  The reported deaths had started to move up consistent with about the 3 week delay over cases moving up.  The state is running about 4,000 newly reported cases and 40-80 deaths per day.

I'm not sure why the new case figure leveled off other than folks saw the news and took greater care about it.  They reopened some of the temp hospitals recently, probably a good idea.  I think those areas would be used for patients still needing hospitalization care but are recovering and out of danger.

IF the state manages to level off, even at this high level, that is better than what I feared might happen.

You gotta love her for that, but when I re-read this sentence, it is sort of cryptic.

So, Sweden is perhaps signaling a message that some of us are immune/resistant, perhaps as much as half the population.

I am wondering about this.

if the Mrs.’s test doesn’t not come back positive I will be shocked.  She is up and down but can’t break the fever for going on 6 Days now. 

It would be nearly impossible for Her to have it and not me.  We are in close contact obviously
but for me, at most ( knock on wood) I am close to asymptomatic- maybe occasional symptoms of a mild cold.

thinking about the incubation period which is 5 to 10 days we’re trying to figure out how or where either of us could have contacted it. Masks 100% of the time when we leave the house and the only exception was her getting her teeth cleaned at the dentist but everybody else around her was marrying a mask.    She has shopped in Publix and Walmart a number of times but again masks are required so who knows.

A mask isn't going to keep you from contracting it, it could reduce the chances by 5% or so.

It's obviously highly contagious so you could pick it up unknowlingly in an innocent situation, as could we all.  I just can't figure how countries and states are leveling off with such a low percentage of people infected.

I think it's very possible that half of the US has had it already.

If your pants cannot contain a fart, then your mask isn't going to be able to protect you from the much smaller virus particles. 

It helps a little, but it is hardly a force field. The ones they are selling to the public aren't even medical grade. Basically the hands free version of holding your shirt up over your mouth and nose.

You might need to log onto the CVS MyChart to get your results, FYI. CVS had told me to expect an email, but that never came.

I've heard other speculation that a mask can entirely prevent it - depending on the mask. The Dock Doc thinks it's about 50 percent for the general public, and also thinks the homemade varieties published by various folks online are better than the "surgical" masks being sold in stores.

The ones my wife made have layers. That's what we wear.

so we may be getting closer to the 70% herd immunity?

Based on what evidence?

If your pants cannot contain a fart, then your mask isn't going to be able to protect you from the much smaller virus particles.

It helps a little, but it is hardly a force field. The ones they are selling to the public aren't even medical grade. Basically the hands free version of holding your shirt up over your mouth and nose.
Again, the mask doesn't make you "safe" in that it entirely prevents you from getting it. 

The virus particles are mostly carried by droplets from coughing/sneezing and aerosolized from general exhaling and talking. The mask will catch most of those leaving your mouth, reducing the likelihood of spreading to another person. As far as protecting you from the virus, the mask will help to catch some of those droplets or aerosols, but I worry that if you catch virus on your mask, your normal breathing might pull it in. Still better than no mask, but capturing it at the source is more important than capturing it at the destination to reduce the spread. 

But the idea of the mask is much more simple. It reduces transmission, hopefully allowing us to get to an R0 of <1, while still being able to go out in public and not all be on lockdown. The higher the rate of mask usage, the better we get as a society of getting R0 down. Even if the mask only reduces the likelihood of transmission within a specific encounter of 15%, the aggregate of doing that across society helps us get to an R0 of <1.

I don't think anything like half of us have had it.  I am beginning to suspect half of us have had something similar to it, and our immune system responds very quickly to it.  Otherwise, Sweden would be a total disaster, and they aren't, not even close.

I can't explain that otherwise.
