Thanks both of you! I’m keeping to share and keep it both real and sometimes positive when I can! I’ll admit I had to look up “bee’s knees” meant though, lol. Thanks again. Will try to keep it up!

I expect them to expand criteria soon in coming week. The flu lab surveillance of flu negative samples must still continue though. And hence bottlenecking of sending samples to Atlanta needs to end soon.

Maybe good start. But $1B is a total joke of a budget request.

3) There is another 3rd runner who also ran the same marathon and now also infected, but no contacts with any other Italian cases. Marathon spreading looking still possible. I wonder what their finish times were ?

Was this the production of the Queensland potential vaccine 💉 announced other day? I’m paywalled and can’t read it.

2) update - it’s possible the person got it from the workplace instead. Still the infected case being a healthy marathon runner says a lot.

Fun + mind blowing fact (relevant to asymptomatic issue)- the first case in Torino, Italy was actually a ***marathon runner🏃*** who got it from another marathon runner 🏃‍♀️while running a... marathon. Gonna go on a limb and call this healthy person to person transmission.

indeed. CFR is maybe 1-2% according to diff experts. Lots of underdiagnosis of milder cases (missing from denominator) and lots of yet unresolved cases that have neither recovered nor died. Let’s wait and see.

Thanks. They don’t bother me. I’m not here for any academic promotion, peddle any book, sell any product, push any blog, or pump any YouTube views. I’m just here to share and translate (good) information stop misinformation.

CDC’s testing kits are still being fixed. They had a nationwide test kit recall last week. Hence testing capacity is currently very limited and all flu labs still funneled mostly thru Atlanta HQ.

If you can afford to see doctor initially first and afford the testing. It’s a catch 22.

5) “These were multiple mini-outbreaks that had gone undetected- discovery was a huge red flag: "these SARS-related viruses were jumping into people even if they weren't causing any noticeable disease." Indeed, health authorities simply never picked up on it.”

4) “She and her colleagues checked the villagers' blood for signs of recent infections with bat coronaviruses. The team did this again with people in some other rural areas. Each time, says Li, "we found coronaviruses that had already spilled over into the human population."

Noting these valid points by and & watching rapid spread of outside of China in countries like S. Korea, Iran, Italy....why does have such narrow screening criteria still?

3) “For example, one of the coronaviruses that the researchers found was a very close genetic match for the SARS virus. So they put it in a petri dish with human cells. The virus succeeded in infecting the cells.”

That bad little “P” word is on all our minds. We are now at probably pandemic: Past Time to Tell the Public: “It Will Probably Go Pandemic, and We Should All Prepare Now“
