Glad you're on the mend!

If you were negative do they have any idea else it was?

Take care of yourself man.

Pretty sure it was kung flu, my sister works at the lab in the local hospital, and said the nasal test they use usually comes back 30-50% wrong, both false pos, and false neg.

One of my grandson's freshman classmates has tested positive. My grandson was "exposed" so he has been sent home for "quarantine".
However, his younger brother is required to continue to attend 2nd grade class as normal.

Had to update my vote again.

The guy that sits across from me in the office got tested on Friday, and got the positive results this morning.

I have an appointment to get swabbed in about an hour.

The second part of that is the first reaction by "authorities" I've read that actually makes sense. Everything I've read is that children are neither vectors nor suffer from the disease.1 The second grader should be heading to school unless he become symptomatic.



1: By that I mean that they don't tend to get symptoms. They tend to be either asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms. YES, there are exceptions as a very few children have died from the Wuhan coronavirus, but this disease is less deadly than the flu for children.

Same situation here.
My oldest was in a class that was exposed and has been doing e-learning for her quarantine.  My youngest is still attending.

It wasn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.

Also, since Mrs. Mush works for a local hospital,  I slid into the "healthcare worker expedited line" and got my results in about 4.5 hrs.

So far negative.  We are monitoring for symptom onset.

My cousin, 911 operator in upstate NY now has it.  He got it from a coworker that was ordered to come into work despite having tested positive. And my wife's cousin got it, along with the rest of his family, as his mother is a covid denier, despite literally being in one of the original hot spots just north of NYC who had followed no guidelines and got sick, then got the rest of the house sick, who did go and get tested.  Thankfully none are hospitalization level sick and I hope it also passes through them without reaching that level.

Daughter's roommate just tested positive.  Daughter will get tested tomorrow.  And us too, eventually, I'm sure.

---edit to add--

Daughter is negative.

A friend of my mom's just passed. 80s; gone in less than two weeks. The rest of her family is hospitalized; daughter, SIL and grandchildren.  My Mom said this makes it feel real.

    I was really sick the week of Valentines day. I think it was the rona but am not going to get tested, heck with big brother.
 a few friends had the rona's in San Francisco, at work, three new guys claim to have had it in April and May.
 The folks I talked to said they were real sick for a week but otherwise just fine

And daughter's (now ex-) roomie turns out to be positive but totally asymptomatic.  Would never have known if one of roomie's friends hadn't come down with it.

My brother the nurse, in a Facebook comment:

Are you still working with Covid patients?

Occasionally. The number of covid patients is not quite but almost zero now. Back in April we had a full house in hospital every night, but it dropped off gradually in May-June and has not been bad since then. Someone on my unit has one most nights. We still check everyone that cmes in the door.

The main number I've been paying attention to is actual hospitalizations.

The use of the word "cases" in the media is propagandist lies designed to instill fear. They are calling all positive tests "cases" as if they were active infections in people under a doctors care.

From the hospitalizations numbers it is looking promising but we are heading into flu season, so I'm keeping my expectations in check.

IF we had allowed those at extremely low risk from the disease to have gone about their business normally and protected the vulnerable, we'd be through this already.

There isn't going to be a "second wave" because we've been dragging the first wave out for 6 months. (Two weeks to flatten the curve!!!)
