My entire county has had a whole 18 covid-19 infections so far and 16 of those have been cured. The real problem is testing. That's been the main problem since the start of this thing.

I have often wondered why Jackass Trump has fought testing with such vigor and sly. It really doesn't make much sense. It actually seems like he wants more people to die! While not true in Washington state it would also seem that the majority of cases, that die, are the elderly, the poor, and the colored. If that is true then, I guess, that means that the answer is that he is trying to just kill off the opposition. Its kinda like all the folks that are marching to do away with the efforts to contain and slow down Covid-19. One of the things they seem to love to do is to not wear any protection, except for being armed, and mass together in large groups. Jackass Trump, obviously, is supporting these efforts in a desperate bid to rebuild the economy before election. On the other hand I am sure that there are a lot of these so-called protestors are going to get the virus and some will die. I don't think he really wants to kill off his own supporters too?
Just another thing I just do not get!

There are constant reports of these protestors dying due to Covid-19 but this hasn't slowed them down even a little bit. It boggles........


Well, if the virus kills about 0.8% of all infected cases, maybe even fewer than that, Trump's calculation might be that fanning the flames of these protests in swing states with Democratic governors confers a big electoral advantage than the disadvantage of a few of his voters dying out.

I think he's not paying attention to WHO it kills. Numbers I hear are 80% asymptomatic, 10% need hospitalization, 5% need ICU. 3 men for every 2 women die. When age 70+ go on a ventilator, it's 97% lethal. So I think it's actually going to kill a lot of Trump voters. (And these are folks who DO vote every time.)

On the other hand, it's particularly lethal to obese Black men. This is probably not helped at all by their Vitamin D deficiencies. Every person with dark skin in America should start taking at least 2500 iu of Vitamin D3 every day. There's a buttload of peer-reviewed journal papers to support this.

I am not really convinced he actually has a clue as to what the hell is going on. He just knows that its been good to him as it has maintained his TV exposure so the Trump show remains a money maker for them that own TV.

Just in case. I am suggesting that the man is only interested in making sure the Trump show is THE show! He got cut once, and is working very hard so that doesn't happen again.

The only real question is whether he will win an Emmy.....

Halting some government program until Trump understands what is going on, means halting it forever. We've actually seen this several times.

You have a lot more faith than I. I have never been convinced he understands ANYTHING! Well, other than his obvious superiority.

It's been explained today that people who test positive again after having been tested negative are shedding dead lung cells with virus particles and these are causing false positives of swab tests; the material collected includes these dead cells, although the person is no longer truly sick.

So far a true re-infection, that I know, hasn't been proven. Fortunately.

MedCram number 73 on YouTube features a South Korean study that looked at hundreds of people who were recovered but then tested positive on PCR: They found no intact viruses in them. They even looked at all their close contacts after recovery and found ZERO people infected. So this pretty much puts "reinfection" to bed. Doesn't happen or if it does it's very rare.

Now all we need is a really good, quick, antibody test available to EVERYBODY! If we can get that then we will be on the way to success. That is because everybody that has antibody against covid-19 are in theory, done with Covid-19 and can neither get infected again nor can they spread it to others. There have been speculations that there are a LOT of folks who have had it and moved on. Many, we are told, don't even know that they had it in the first place. This means there is an entire cadre of folks who can work, and be in public spaces, with no fear of covid-19.

The problem is with the antibody test and I expect that one to get fixed pretty soon (probably more wishful thinking) <sigh>
