That story about the man who lied to get in to the maternity ward really bothers me - they should not have backed down on their ban for emotional reasons. Now his wife and their child could get sick or die, not to mention everyone else there.

So I have passed my self isolation timeline and am fine but of course still at home.

 

I was curious how many people have gotten ill closer to the 14 day mark than the 1 day mark of being exposed. It seems all cases I am reading about tend to be within 2 or 3 days of known exposure.

 

I know a typical virus - the symptoms if you have caught it -  typically materializes no more than 7 days after exposure. After that you are normally out of danger of getting ill. Is the 14 days just a safeguard? It's really why after I passed 7 days from exposure I wasn't really that worried.

The vast majority do show symptoms well within that time frame. I had found a medical site that gave a more detailed account of what they know so far, they said that 97% of people who are exposed will show symptoms by day 11. There are a few outliers that will show on day 12 and 13, that's why they say 14 days.

This story was from a year ago, and gives much credence to that theory.

Oklahoma has got to be perhaps the most ridiculous state in the union at this point, they are NOT TESTING, they have the lowest testing rate in the entire country.....even Wyoming has tested more people.  There has got to be literally tens of thousands of Typhoid Marys walking around down there. Only 1,794 people tested in the WHOLE STATE. And 565 positives (that is a 31.49% positive rate of those tested). Kansas to the north is  better, with 424 positives, but they have at least tested 5,424 people, giving them a positive rate of 8.7%.

I did not vote for him, but I, too, have been very impressed with his handling of the pandemic. I believe he was the first one to shut down schools. He announced on Thursday and everyone was done by Tuesday. He has gradually been shutting other things down as well. His daily 2:00 briefing has become my new "soap."

Me either, I didn't think he'd be a good Governor but man he's stepped up big time

I'm done hoping the seriousness of this virus will get through our thick skulls.  If people in this country can't be fully trusted to take the necessary precautions -- for themselves, and for their loved ones -- then perhaps it's time to enact martial law.

Really poor on the part of the Tories. If this isn't a signpost of conservatism/austerity, I don't know what is.

 

 

 

Trump's poll numbers are often like soap ratings: a new low standard, sure ,but incredibly volatile all the same.
