I don't think you have to worry that people, even those with short memories, will have forgotten this mess by November.

 

Meanwhile, let IMPOTUS keep calling the "governor in Washington" and "that woman in Michigan" names and crybabies and send all the extra ventilators he's making to other countries.  (Hey numbnuts, they have names -- that would be Gov. Jay Inslee and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer respectively.)  Such presidential decorum and encouraging words.  I bet Hannity is proud of his boy.  👎

Also President Obama declared a National Emergency 10 DAYS after the first H1N1 case was reported in 2009 while the Toad denied anything was haappening for 63 days AFTER his NSA experts told him CoronaVirus was a threat to our National Security. Toad still refuses to act or take responsibility fo not acting.

 

This is the difference between having a President and getting stuck with a mental and moral infant asToadPOTUS. 

 

Note to progressive Hillary Haters - It is very possible a few thousand people deciding to NOT support the democratic candidate because she "played hardball" in the primaries gave us a gutless, moronic draftdodging Toad in the White House.

PLEASE do not do this again in 2020.

   U.S. Companies, Labs Rush to Produce Blood Test for Coronavirus Immunity ......Several academic laboratories and medical companies are rushing to produce these blood tests, which can quickly identify disease-fighting antibodies in people who already have been infected but may have had mild symptoms or none at all. This is different from the current, sometimes hard-to-come-by diagnostic tests that draw on a nasal swab to confirm active infection. READ MORE---

These are news stories not scientific studies. 

There are other reports that up to 14% of Chinese patients tested positive after they recovered. So something is going on. What's unknown is whether this means the tests are not accurate, or people with weaker immune systems don't build up sufficient resistance to reinfection, or something else.

 

It matters though, because it could change our response protocols to prevent additional spread.

Nobody has any indisputable facts or proof about the coronavirus yet; it's all still conjecture.   It is a new unknown phenomenon and remains a cautious learning experience.   Like the experts keep telling us, the virus will dictate to us, NOT the other way around.

 

Buckle up and be safe.

Can anyone provide any proof as to whether the virus leaves or hangs around, even if someone thinks that they are cured?
So far, what we seem to know: some come down with a mild case of the virus, some come down with a serious case of the virus, and some don't come down with the symptoms but can still test positive (If testing was even available) be contagious, and spread the virus to others without knowing it. 
It appears that we are still flying blind with this virus, and it would be good to pay attention to what happens to others.

Which includes those who have been thru a cycle of the virus infection.  
Knowledge is good!

 

And where are the promised test kits and medical supplies?

THIS CULL FROM YOUR LINK, npr.

"NPR has spoken by phone or exchanged text messages with four individuals in Wuhan who are part of this group of individuals testing positive a second time in March. All four said they had been sickened with the virus and tested positive, then were released from medical care in recent weeks after their condition improved and they tested negative.

Two of them are front-line doctors who were sickened after treating patients in their Wuhan hospitals. The other two are Wuhan residents. They all requested anonymity when speaking with NPR because those who have challenged the government's handling of the outbreak have been detained.".

IF THE ABOVE WAS TRUE, MEANING THEY WENT BACK TO WHAT MADE THEM SICK IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. YOU WILL RECALL THERE IS NO MEDICATION, OR VACCINE FOR COVID-19, YET.

Front line caregivers, res-ponders and people in the health and medical fields have been known and proven to be more susceptible to the scourge. Since they are at close interactions with people infected with the virus.

GIVEN THE ABOVE, THE STORY MIGHT NOT BE TRUE. EITHER OUT-RIGHTLY, OR ALTOGETHER.

Recovered COVID patients in China test positive again....

Message 8 of 8

This is a little concerning.  A few people who allegedly were treated for COVID, recovered, and subsequently tested negative before release......later tested positive again and seem to be asymptomatic carriers.  So theoretically someone could think they are recovered but still go home and transmit the virus to others.  

 

"A spate of mysterious second-time infections is calling into question the accuracy of COVID-19 diagnostic tools even as China prepares to lift quarantine measures to allow residents to leave the epicenter of its outbreak next month. It's also raising concerns of a possible second wave of cases.

From March 18-22, the Chinese city of Wuhan reported no new cases of the virus through domestic transmission — that is, infection passed on from one person to another. The achievement was seen as a turning point in efforts to contain the virus, which has infected more than 80,000 people in China. Wuhan was particularly hard-hit, with more than half of all confirmed cases in the country.

 

But some Wuhan residents who had tested positive earlier and then recovered from the disease are testing positive for the virus a second time. Based on data from several quarantine facilities in the city, which house patients for further observation after their discharge from hospitals, about 5%-10% of patients pronounced "recovered" have tested positive again.

 

Some of those who retested positive appear to be asymptomatic carriers — those who carry the virus and are possibly infectious but do not exhibit any of the illness's associated symptoms — suggesting that the outbreak in Wuhan is not close to being over.

 

NPR has spoken by phone or exchanged text messages with four individuals in Wuhan who are part of this group of individuals testing positive a second time in March. All four said they had been sickened with the virus and tested positive, then were released from medical care in recent weeks after their condition improved and they tested negative."
