  1. Cuomo wants to run for president soon. He's making this extremely political. First he said it was all about flattening the curve. We've done that already. There are only 226 people in the ICU in the entire state right now. Now he wants to make movie threatres, gyms, sporting venues upgrade there AC units to be able to better filtrate the air inside these places? He just placed the entire state on lockdown for nearly 4 months. Does he honestly think these places have the money to do this? After a successful vaccine is found it takes upwards of 6 months to even get enough doses to give to everyone in the country to have any type of success. Does that mean we are another full year away from fully opening without restrictions?
  2. Seroconversion of a city: Longitudinal monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence in New York City By conducting a retrospective, cross-sectional analysis of SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence in a sentinel group (enriched for SARS-CoV-2 infections) and a screening group (representative of the general population) using >5,000 plasma samples from patients at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City (NYC), we identified seropositive samples as early as in the week ending February 23, 2020. A stark increase in seropositivity in the sentinel group started the week ending March 22 and in the screening group in the week ending March 29. By the week ending April 19, the seroprevalence in the screening group reached 19.3%, which is well below the estimated 67% needed to achieve community immunity to SARS-CoV-2. These data potentially suggest an earlier than previously documented introduction of SARS-CoV-2 into the NYC metropolitan area.

  4. It's a failed attempt at trolling as most people here enjoy the changing temps in fall including myself.
  5. It looks to be the strongest heat wave in years. I really wish I got AC installed earlier.
  6. I got an antibody test today as I was around someone for a few days that got the virus back in March. It was free and I was curious. It's a 5 second blood tests at Quest.
  7. Looks like the hub cities for NHL are Edmonton for the western conference and Toronto for the eastern conference.
  8. Approximately 30% show no symptoms or are immune, and estimates of around 50% are asymptomatic. This would mean only 20% of people show symptoms. Thoughts? https://news.ki.se/immunity-to-covid-19-is-probably-higher-than-tests-have-shown
  9. I use my phone for music. I'll pass on that.
  10. My gym closed down March 23rd and I don't see any sign of them reopening for quite awhile. I was thinking Aug 1st at the earliest. I went to the gym 4-5 days a week and miss it so much. I have been doing lots of bodyweight workouts, running outside, swimming in the pool to keep in shape.
  11. If we are having nearly 50k confirmed cases a day from tests, we are at least double that per day with asymptomatic patients.
  12. Interesting article on this subject. https://theconversation.com/amp/coronavirus-could-it-be-burning-out-after-20-of-a-population-is-infected-141584
  13. Thoughts on this? https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.13.20101253v2 Infection fatality rates ranged from 0.02% to 0.86% (median 0.26%) and corrected values ranged from 0.02% to 0.78% (median 0.25%). Among people <70 years old, infection fatality rates ranged from 0.00% to 0.26% with median of 0.05% (corrected, 0.00-0.23% with median of 0.04%).
  14. As long as we've flattened the curve none of that matters. We're not waiting for a potential vaccine to reopen everything, that was never and should never be the plan.
