    Deblasio  is urging Trump to enlist Doctors  and Nurses from around the world to help us out.

    Didn't Cuomo say last week he already had ~40,000 volunteers ready to come help?

    I know this is a silly question probably... but can a mask be reused? I was able to order some... only able to get 20... if we Lysol the outside of something? I don’t know, 20 masks isn’t going to last long if you change them every time one of us leaves the house 

    I read you can sterilize in the oven at 160F for 30min. Remove the plastic strap first.

    any word on antibody testing?

    Starting to roll out in big cities, but I have this feeling they will be picky about who to test, similar to the virus test. you can't just start testing everyone, although in theory that would be ideal

    Glad you’re feeling better! Yeah, it’s crazy how this virus picks and chooses. I know of two couples where the husbands got hit hard with covid symptoms and nothing for the spouse. I was reading a article and they think there is some genetic predisposition involved. 

    I wish they would look more into the blood type as there was a very small study that claimed O type was less likely then A, A/B to get sick.

  8. My wife was saying that AAL tix from Bos to MIA are $16 one way and that some of the flights are getting pretty fully due to the cheap tix price. Seems like the airlines are fueling the fire

  9. Yeah...there’s a bunch out there in human trials already. They’re not taking the conventional approach of vaccine making with weakened forms of the actual virus so they can skip some steps.
    Can't grow covid in chix eggs unfortunately

  10. How long before there is a vaccine for this virus?

    It's really hard to say, but it certainly won't be soon. We may have the prototype of a vaccine within a few months—that's when the first animal tests will have been completed—but the most important part is still to come: is the vaccine both safe and effective in humans? A coronavirus vaccine for humans has never been developed and tested before, so we have no experience whatsoever with it. Then the larger-scale clinical trials follow, unless the decision is made to bypass them completely because of the urgency of the situation, and then you have to scale up the production of the vaccine until a potential several hundred million doses. If you compare that with our annual flu jab, we now have a streamlined procedure and know the virus through and through, but even then the production time is still nine months.

    You do realize they already have at least two vaccines in trial already

  11. Great question at the presser asking about the supply chain and bidding issue with n95 masks. 
    Are they still doing daily pressers? I don't even watch anymore, only our local cdc daily update

    The active ingredient cetylpyridinium chloride is a common ingredient in mouthwash, lozenges, sore throat spray, etc. You could probably get the same effect with a lozenge. 

    Here's a mouthwash study. One conclusion" Indeed, following the H1N1 swine flu outbreak in 2009, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare recommended daily gargling as a protective hygiene measure to prevent upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) [40], a practice supported by findings from studies that examined the role of gargling in both healthy individuals and those with frequent or persistent URTIs"

    Maybe start gargling at night and in the morning?

    Just got back from Baystate it was realitivly quick.. I signed in and ended up getting a room in the hallway.. I told them my symptoms  and got a exam pretty much right away! ALSO THEY HAVE NO TEST LEFT!!! The doctor is 100 percent sure I have it but my symptoms are mild enough to not be admitted.. so thankful my lungs are ok even though breathing is off.. was told that's happening alot... also said after 7 days of the day I'm better I can go back to what I was doing.. I was shocked to hear that thought it was 14 days... also said tylenol or ibuprofen  is ok to take, but I heard  different,  he told me to stop listening  to the media..

    good to hear you're back home. get well soon.

    And yet Tesla, which has lost money every year of its history and has negative revenue growth, still trades at $450 a share. This shows you the stock bubble has not truly popped yet.

    well they were ay $900ish not more than a month or so ago. They've taken a hit
