  1. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/05/health/genetics-coronavirus-spread-study/index.html?fbclid=IwAR1W4ZQhMWajgyPlJ08sz_92XXQ0zyygLoAbOg8VQ1loB_AOGckT34DDbCk lends more credence to the idea this was spreading here and Europe in late 2019
  2. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/fever-fatigue-fear-some-recovering-covid-19-patients-weeks-illness-n1197806 https://www.businessinsider.com/mild-coronavirus-cases-recovery-symptoms-last-a-month-2020-4 It looks like many others are having the same long lasting symptoms that you had
  3. It sounds like 41% of people who died were obese but 39% of American adults are obese so its basically representative.
  4. Just want to point out that the part of Italy that was hardest hit did not have a poor health care system. Yes they had multigenerational households, their demographics(and possibly smoking habits) did not help and they were caught off guard and not prepared but they have one of the better health care systems in the world.
  5. this is honestly terrifying news from Ecuador. Not looking forward to how this will spread throughout South America and Africa.
  6. yeah when one of the "strains" is described as mutuating slowly in china but quickly outside of china it makes me skeptical of any of the science behind it
  7. I know there's some thought that the way this outbreak occurring is how the other human coronaviruses have become endemic to human population, where a majority get immunity after the first wave of infections, and then there are still some who don't have immunity(usually younger) but they mostly get milder symptoms(like the common cold), and there are very rare more severe infections of older patients. Not sure if that's what could be happening with this specific coronavirus.
  8. measles has an R naught of 12 to 18. Super contagious. Polio and rubella also have R naughts of around 5-6
  9. 500 + new nursing home deaths in France today that hadn't previously been counted. This is in addition to 800+ deaths that had previously occurred in nursing homes that happened yesterday
  10. I’m newbie on this forum so I don’t mean to step on any toes but I don’t think there is actually evidence of reinfection. All the articles I’ve seen about reinfection show that the people have viral loads but don’t show any more symptoms and aren’t infectious or they are people who have a break in symptoms and then they come back again(which is congruent with anecdotes of people’s symptoms waxing and waning). Which makes me think that these stories about reinfection are either continuations of the same infection or viral loads in people who are recovered from the symptoms but still have traces of the disease in their bodies. I really respect your posts so if you do have other evidence of reinfection I’m all ears.
  11. lets say they average 5 days to show symptoms and average 14 days to pass away from it after getting symptoms(after all average time on a ventilator is 11-21 days). you still would not get any meaningful decrease in fatalities until a few days from now.
