Just got the COVID test.  Symptoms not standard COVID symptoms but had exposure at work to person who tested positive so Dr wanted test done. 

They ran out of the long swabs so got a shorter one in the nose.  Hope it's as effective as the std one.

If you feel comfortable sharing the info, what are your 'not standard' symptoms? Or if you feel comfortable sharing but not for the entire thread, please send me a private message.

Interestingly, everyone talks about fever, but we only saw fever in 60% of our covid patients.  Yet the recommendations are still to do temp checks at the door for anyone coming into institutions, and that certainly isn't limited to just my facility.

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

I send you a private message.  Thanks again to you and all the medical teams out there in the thick of it.

Our community prevalence has dropped dramatically.  A month ago, we had 4,000 covid per 100,000 people.  Now we are down to 400 per 100,000.  But the entire NYC medical community is currently sitting on edge until we get 14 days past the holiday weekend.

Man Walz is a clown. Gotta think a lot lawsuits are gonna be thrown at him from gyms, restaurants, etc. soon if they haven't already especially after seeing how it worked in Wisconsin.

 

 

 

After having the worst Governor in the history of Governors (Dayton) I didn't think it could get any worse.  But man, is Walz trying to claim the title!!  Before it was ok for large candy stores, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, etc to be open but not smaller businesses that you are exposed to a 10th of the people of those larger stores.  Now that restaurants are gonna be open, only ones with outdoor seating are allowed and if they don't have to remain closed.  Malls are open but churches remain closed.  Someone explain his logic because everyone here in Minnesota (and around the country) is trying to figure it out!!

Heard on the radio about the outbreak at the nursing home in Mayville. They said something like 13 staff and 6 or 7 residents tested positive. Everyone was asymptomatic.  I’m really interested in hearing about the antibody testing results once it gets ramped up; and we get a much better picture of what the actual hospitalization and death percentages are.

Another 2.44M file jobless claims last week..... nothing to see here

$500 billion of potential wages, unemployment benefits and other aid sitting on the sidelines with Mnuchin until Trump can fire all of the people charged with overseeing how it's spent and funnel it into Trump org.   Nothing to see here.

I've been trying to see the logic behind the latest moves and this is the first time where I have to go and say:  I don't see it (I'm an equal opportunity ripper*, so don't accuse me of carrying a blue card or a red card).  I was fully expected to see 50% capacity in restaurants, bars, barbershops, salons. (I wasn't shocked about the churches tbh).

The only thing I can see with the restaurants is that if someone tested positive, they could go back and say: well here are all the people who were here at that time (since they are only taking reservations), so you can contact trace.**  

In retrospect, we should have known something was up when the briefing was moved back an hour.  I saw this as I scrolled through twitter and this sums up nicely with the confusion: https://mailchi.mp/fluence-media/morningtake11718-2248546

Walz still has a long ways to go to get to Dayton, it would take a lot to get to that.  Given I heard that Minneapolis might make mask wearing mandatory (which I have a problem with***) and knowing that Frey leans from with the Dayton wing of the DFL, I could have seen him doing the same thing. 

The ONLY thing that I will say was decent about that briefing yesterday was that they did give further guidance on what the next two phases will look like. 

*Copyright the Common Man

**Now that logic goes out the window with malls open at 50% and is a very valid counterpoint destroying my attempt at logic

***I'm not against masks, but I am against making it mandatory because when you tell someone to do something, you will get more pushback and defiance (see Ohio).

With 39M unemployed that's what you bring to the table. The way these payments/checks have been distributed hasn't been without issues (ask MM) but you really need to play a different card once in awhile.

Do you ever look in the mirror and say "wow I am really an a****le"? Or does your wife just tell you that daily???

Have you seen what Spain has found with their antibody testing? They are figuring 5% of their population has been infected and their death rate per capita exceeds the US. In other words, this could suck for a long time.

Just stop, please for everyone's sake, especially your own.

For people that are vulnerable to it, yep.  What we are doing now needs to stop soon.  The way everyone is bitching it apparently isn't working anyway.

I think it's important that we call out who's responsible for this mess and not just complain about it.    Trump and his movement's legacy (whether he wins or loses in November) will be a few hundred thousand dead Americans and a destroyed economy because he couldn't be bothered to do his job.   He and his supporters have weakened this country immeasurably and I'm not sorry that pointing it out hurts your feelings.

Hahaha.  Have a bad day.

I have nothing to do with KY or Mitch McConnell...I live in California

But I guess you have everything to do with NY? And I just picked KY because I enjoy irony.

Any my apologies for responding to a days old post. I only come here every 5 days or so and read the last page, just to get some levity at the same old tired posters writing the same old tired comments. I guess if you post thousands of times that somehow makes you important, or interesting, or omniscient. Peace out my Sioux Brethren! Remember when this used to be a sports site!!! Ah, the good ol' days...

Keeping kids at home, cancelling events and activities, etc. We are all vulnerable to getting it, yah.  To dying...nope.

I guess I just took the news of seven really old, vulnerable people not even getting sick from it, along with 13 others also not showing any symptoms, was a good thing.    My bad.

maybe it’s because there’s no Spaniards in Mayville?

We know so much more about this than we did 2 months ago.  

it is very contagious person to person, but not really from contaminated surfaces.

it is highly lethal if you are older than 70.

it is lethal if you are north of 50 with health conditions.

Lethality is close to zero for kids (much better than flu)

lethality looks like normal flu between 25-50, underlying conditions increase severity.

traditional immune systems builders tend to help as per any ailment:  take your daily multi-vitamin, eat healthy foods, get outside and exercise.

hospital treatments not a panacea- no silver bullet, but people are getting lucky.

HCQ now the most debated 20 cent generic on the planet.

anti-virals and IVIG therapies all being tested and administered with random efficacy.

Ace2 meds Still being investigated.

99.97% of people in US neither dead nor critical.

jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself 

Emphasis on Epstein.
