so much for "this isn't any worse than the seasonal flu"...

Covid-19 is rapidly becoming Americaís leading cause of death
 


(pretty sure this isn't what they meant by "help us beat cancer"...)

my missus wen through the same thing - sudden onset of all the symptoms, not too badly though.  test came back negative.  took 5 days, but the time the results came back my wife was feeling much better, so she was hoping that the test would come back positive - implying that she now had immunity.  alas, the covid-19 test was negative - not something you hear every day...

moral of the story: stay calm, stay positive.  there is a very good chance she doesn't have it.

Iím a healthcare exec who has continued to go into the office part time. We staff nurses in some places with COVID positive patients (including the place with 50+ deaths youíve seen in the news - Lexington Court).

I donít personally interact with the RNs, but they have come into offices to pick up PPE. If she has it, Iím guessing I do to (she really hasnít left the house except to go for a walk) and am just asymptomatic.

Yeah, part of me hopes we both have it since hospitals are not currently slammed. Letís get it out of the way. She is solid fucking miserable though. This does not look fun.

That weekend I was all pissy - same thing.  Chest pains, slight fever, slept 19 straight hours, thought for sure it was The VID. 

Nope.

I was going to say this. Looks like only 20% of US tests have been positive. That lots of true negatives (Trump, Pence,people with other similar illneses etc) and/or lots of false negatives.
