I'll go out if I need to but I'm taking it easy. I do still have to go to work and I'm noticing that more of our customers are wearing masks. We've been warned by the market organizers that they may pull the plug if they deem it necessary but at this point, we're still going ahead.That is obviously why it is taking so long. You would think that there would be some labs locally that could handle it? It certainly makes me uncomfortable that we are several days behind knowing just how many people are currently affected. At least those being tested are being told to go into quarantine until they know the results of their tests. I just hope that everyone being tested is respecting that expectation.
How are you doing? Still going out shopping? I am staying home for awhile other than some veggies.
it is a bit of a roller coaster ride. I was starting to feel like the Interior was really fortunate and we might not have any true concerns when it came to the virus. I too have noticed more people wearing masks, so hopefully that continues. I think that the contact tracing is being taken seriously so anyone at risk would have been told to be in self quarantine until they know if they have the virus. Stay safe at work!!I'll go out if I need to but I'm taking it easy. I do still have to go to work and I'm noticing that more of our customers are wearing masks.

I just googled it. I have never heard of it. I am gonna post to one of my groups.Ben Gurion University in Israel has a doctor there that has developed a Breathalyzer test much like the one that tells if your drunk or not.....but this one can detect the Covid19 virus with a 90% accuracy rate. And you can get the results in 1 minute. Now this has been known for some time now. Wonder why our mainstream media isn't telling you about this. I called one of our local TV stations Yesterday and informed them of this and told them I would like to see something about this on the TV News. Tonight that local TV Station ran a blip about it, even showing the product being used. That local station was the only one I have seen show or say anything about this product. The National mainstream media haven't shown anything about it nor have the other local stations. How is it that an average citizen could know more about this than all the mainstream media networks? Do they really want to stop this pandemic? It sure does make me wonder. The interesting aspect about all this is if the virus is detected early, like in the first 6 days you can prescribe Hydroxychloroquine, with a Z-Pack and Zinc and it can save 50% of those that might otherwise not survive. But it's critical that the treatment needs to be started in the first six days. The problem now, the FDA won't permit the prescription of Hydroxychloroquine until a positive diagnosis has been made and with the test they are using now it can take a week to get the results back. That is too long for the meds to be of any use. That's why this breathalyzer test is so important. You would think that our medical people would want to know this if they really want to stop this virus anytime soon. I guess the only way they will know about this advancement in testing for the virus is if people like you and me get the word out and ask your news media to cover this information. Maybe just maybe you will help in saving some lives. I did my part here. I hope you will do your part too.

I am in port st lucie lol.Hi Catscankim, I live in Port St Lucie (on the treasure coast) and I'm a registered nurse. Where in Florida are you located?
I think this last part is being dangerously and purposefully ignored. I don't think enough time has lapsed to really study long term effects but the anecdotal data suggests that the residual effects for survivors can be particularly bad.The issue is, deaths lag behind infections. So infection rates are going to go up (as we are seeing), and then 2-4 weeks later, we are likely to see an increase in the death rate. This is especially going to be true in places like Florida, where ICU capacity is being maxed out.
The current administration's rhetoric on the death rate going down means nothing...and will mean nothing until the pandemic is over and we can actually see the case fatality ratio. If infections continue to increase, and mortality continues to fall...then I might be more convinced. Hopefully this can become the case, but to claim this has already happened is foolish.
Plus, it has been estimated, in a well controlled scenario (for instance S.Korea), the actual mortality rate of Covid-19 is anywhere from .2-1%...yet we are seeing an average death rate of 8% in the US...and 7% in Sweden for the people saying they did so well...and there are people who have the gall to claim (and continue to claim) we are doing so well in fighting the pandemic.
Even mortality rate aside...there are people who will have life altering complications from Covid. So they don't die, but they have irreversible scarring in their lungs, or nerve damage, or a host of other issues. Yet people still gripe about having to wear a mask...and grown adults are having temper tantrums when Costco is denying them entry for not following the rules.
I did see this reported a while back, but it seems that it's not just the mainstream media that's hiding it.....you'd think that Ben-Gurion University would want to make this information known! Do we know why they're not publicizing their own research? I wonder if perhaps the subsequent trials were not as successful. After all, the initial sample was only 120 people--and neither peer-reviewed nor published, I don't think--so perhaps the ongoing results didn't hold up.Ben Gurion University in Israel has a doctor there that has developed a Breathalyzer test much like the one that tells if your drunk or not.....

They say it's economical...but the other sources I've read about similar tech (in France) they mention that it's too costly for widespread use.I did see this reported a while back, but it seems that it's not just the mainstream media that's hiding it.....you'd think that Ben-Gurion University would want to make this information known!

Actually, it looks like it's not a conspiracy keeping it down...it's capitalism!!They say it's economical...but the other sources I've read about similar tech (in France) they mention that it's too costly for widespread use.
I sort of understand the HCQ, because it is immunosupressive, how (if it didn't have deadly side effects) they thought it might be beneficial for dampening the cytokine storm. Obviously there has been evidence to contraindicate the use now...but it does make theoretical sense (if you had no evidence based data).There have been lots of recent studies that debunk the hydroxychloroquin/z-pack/zinc treatment. If it really worked, all doctors would be prescribing it and it wouldn't be a controversial treatment (unless you susbcribe to conspiracy theories). I don't understand how an antibiotic is supposed to help a viral infection - I've always been told that antibiotics have no effect on corona viruses.
Oh that's so great, hope all goes well!Tickets have been purchased. Necessary documentation has been sent to my mom. Now we just need to keep her virus-free until she gets here in just under 2 weeks. The county she lives in has been reporting 100 or so new cases a day for the past few days. She asked if we wanted her to bring anything over. I told her to stay out of the stores! There is nothing I want her to buy if it means possible exposure and a cancelled trip.
Due to people quarantined and not going out measles has had a resurgence globally. Polio has also come back.Interestingly, measles is much more contagious than corona virus. It can survive up to 2 hrs in the air. Vs corona which requires close contact, such as an infected person sneezing or coughing on you.
