Please take a moment to read this post by Michael Simms. It has important information about Covid-19 testing, and makes it clear to me that the US has NO IDEA how many people have it, had it, or are carrying it. If we can’t get a handle on these things, how can any solid decisions be made about how long to keep lockdown going, how to minimize the risk of spiking with cases, etc. It is obvious to me that our current federal government is not up to the challenge of getting a grip on the pandemic. State Governors need to step up their game and coordinate with each other and devote all resources to developing quality tests for detection of active covid and evidence of covid antibodies as well as working on a quality vaccine.
Yesterday afternoon when I got home from the hospital and booted my computer, I was overwhelmed by the thousands of people who sent me messages of love and encouragement after my recent health scare.
