So if there testing in places, that nobody thinks they have to begin with, then they come up with all these new cases, that people did not know it was there. Why not just quit testing. but maby im getting more and more confused.

So you're suggesting the stick-your-head-in-the-sand approach is the way to go.

Yes, you're confused. The hospital I work for just volunteered to be a regional testing site to be able to do the tests there than send it off to the third party sites.

Yep, and guessing most of the town has it since one does. If everyone was to be tested, I bet the fatality rate would plummet.

Panic is good for getting the sheep into the pen. Force might be next?

I know what you mean. I had flu at Thanksgiving then again the last week of Jan, it was worse than any flu ever. In our small church we had two older ones in hospital for pneumonia, One young man 52 went to hospital for pneumonia a couple days they sent him home he went back 2 days later sick and died.

I can just say if its worse than whatever I had, I won't make it.

How long does it take to get the results once a person is tested?


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

they tested in a town in Italy all 3K residents they found about half infected and they found 2/3 had no symptoms.

so of the 50% infected 1/3 have symptoms and 2/3 are just spreading it around with no symptoms.

so even if you feel find don't go visit grandma if you don't want to kill her


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

At my wife's work they are no longer testing for it. If you have a fever and test neg for flu they say you have it and recommend quarantine for 14 days SMH. Running low on tests, gowns, masks. Told dr's to wear trash bags if they run out of gowns.

In theory 4-8 hours. Reality is most state labs are overwhelmed and way behind. We sent tests on last Friday; results back this Thursday.

everyone wants to be tested so they know if they have it. Thing is you could be in contact with someone that has it the next day. Wait till you have symptoms before testing.

I can tell you itís effecting people they said it wouldnít effect...itís as bad as they say.
A buddy is a nurse and one of his coworkers is a gym rat, eats clean, etc...at 42 heís lying in the hospital on a ventilator. Another boy (31) was in ICU and didnít think he would make it...he finally recovered enough to come off a ventilator after a week. They are having to invert patients to keep their lungs from filling up. Thereís no rhyme or reason who and how it might effect someone. They are still in the learning stages unfortunately. It took one guy 6 days before his results came back and thatís when he was already in ICU. Apparently it escalates rapidly.
