RushRevisited Posted May 22, 2020 Share Posted May 22, 2020 If it's in US, we won't know . . . still very little testing! There's over 4000 confirmed cases in 49 states. It's definitely here and certainly should be a concern but it's not time for a full on panic yet. They're taking the proper measures I believe in the limitations they've made in my state when it comes to big get togethers. It's gonna be different for a while but we'll get back to some normalcy soon enough. I think people are overreacting over here actually. At least it doesn't make total sense why everything's shutting down indefinitely for this one, but Swine Flu and Bird Flu and Sars and Ebola and ever other major health scare of the past 20 years didn't have half this effect. But oh well, people overreacting is probably what will keep the US from winding up like China in this mess... I don't think history is going to be particularly kind to this post. It wasn't, you're right. Mostly because all my optimism has been proven wrong by the numbers that stacked up since then. I should've stayed scared when I first heard about it ripping through China in late January, might've made a point of actually saying goodbye to more classmates I still won't be seeing again for months, and some indefinitely. I haven't lost anyone to the virus and I don't know anyone personally who's got it, but I'm sure as heck that if we'd all stayed at our normal lives and normal paces those numbers wouldn't begin to compare to what the flu does every year....they'd be much much worse...I still can't imagine what China's real numbers must look like... Nobody has been completely right about everything. Many have been wrong about many things. My sister-in-law and a couple of cousins are nurses in Florida and Norway and have been treating covid-19 patients. So the threat has been pretty close to me personally. As they're in the thick of it, hearing their points of view and their work experiences weigh a lot more than many news broadcasts, folks' conspiracy theories, and politicians' pissings. And today marks the end of my telework as tonight the State of Emergency for Osaka prefecture is supposed to be made official. Tomorrow's trains to work should be well packed (think literal 'sardine can'), and yeah I'm not too confident that it's safe...because in almost all likelihood, it's not. I can't say that I'm scared or have been at any point. 'Numb' is probably a better word. http://youtu.be/gRfgpuPNMPk Take it easy, EP. I prefer "Grace Under Pressure." Yes! I know lots of stuff too on my end. My test came from a reliable lab, but still, it could all be a horror show. There are many strains and shite. Who knows?????? All I know is that I will respect protocol and take care of myself. I'm glad I didn't have Covid in Feb. But if that test is wrong and I did, well I survived and I have been healthy as a horse ever since! So fuckk it. One day at a time. Casinos are opening up here this month. I'm going to meet me woman hopefully next month. Napa is opening restaurants. RUSH ON!!!!Have you got the results yet Earl? Pat!! I do apologize! I thought I posted my results here last night. I got my results back from Labcorp yesterday. You were right all along Pat. Capt Tripps! That's me! I really thought I had Covid back in early Feb.it was just a really bad flu. I wanted to die Pat.I am sure many Rushhead Haters wish I was dead.I'm still six feet up. Not down mutherfuckkers. Pat! I tested negative for the Covid antibodies. So I was worried about nothing. Cheers Mate!Mind you the virus isn't always present in your nose or throat, as long as it's attached to the ACE2 enzyme it could be there usually in the lungs. So it could be a false negative, but hopefully not. Antibodies are in the blood - he was tested for antibodies, not the virus itself. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
