Wife and I came back negative. Waiting on son’s results.

Daughter still asymptomatic.

Hope we dodged the bullet but still quarantined.
glad to hear that. are you having to quarantine away from your daughter or will you just go get more tests later to make sure no one else becomes asymptomatic?

Huh...
The term "War Between the States" was rarely used during the war but became prevalent afterward among proponents of the "Lost Cause" interpretation of the war.

The Confederate government avoided the term "civil war," which assumes both combatants to be part of a single country, and so referred to it in official documents as the "War between the Confederate States of America and the United States of America."
Yeah.

We have her isolated and we wear masks most of the time.

Pfizer chairman Albert Bourla told Dateline host Lester Holt that the pharmaceutical company was “not certain” if the vaccine prevented the coronavirus from being transmitted, saying, “This is something that needs to be examined.”

In a prime-time special titled “Race for a Vaccine” set to air Thursday, Holt questioned Bourla and other individuals involved in the development and distribution of the medicine.
That seems like an important thing to know.

Really damn important - especially if children will be the last to be vaccinated.

What we know of the transmission right now:

-Truly asymptomatic people... people that get exposed, fight off the disease, test positive for the virus, but show zero symptoms and never do develop symptoms do not effectively transmit the disease.
-Presymptomatic people do.

I would imagine if the vaccine prevents you from ever developing symptoms, it'll also prevent the spread.

That said, I'd love the scientific community to confirm that. No offense. :)

None taken... I completely agree.

Additionally: we know what the damage the virus can do. We have a good bit of evidence of how the vaccines can help. I don't think that knowing for sure that vaccinated=can't spread the disease should stymy the distribution of it.

Also, interesting thread about that study showing blood samples with COVID in December 2019...



tl;dnr: The blood study has a p value of 0.02 or is barely statistically significant given error rates of the type of test they used on those blood samples.

Edit: the thread ends with this...



Which really goes back to why the initial story didn't pass the sniff test for me.

But, but, but, my coworker's best friend's hairdresser is certain she had it in the fall of 2019 because she's never been so sick and she tested negative for the flu so it 100% must have been Covid.

Got my brain stabbed yesterday NAN.

Largest testing center near us still using that.
Oh man. Yeah, everyone I know that have had to get tested out this way haven't had to deal with those ones anymore. :(

Not gonna lie... I've gone back and forth and back and forth on whether that thing I had in February was COVID. It took until August/September or so to fully convince myself that wasn't COVID.

The symptoms checked nearly every box. Extreme fatigue, low grade fever, unrelenting cough, unilateral pink eye, but no head congestion. Took 6 weeks to get to 100%. However I was around my entire family, young and old, and everyone was fine. Granted it was 6 or 7 days into my first symptom.

I think it was either another coronavirus or the flu, even though I tested negative.

Either way, I was WAY worse then than I am now. I went to the doctor twice, and it takes a lot to get me to go even once.

Yep. Saw a guy on FB with it and it looked horrible. It's not actual pink eye and can't be treated like conjunctivitis, you just have to wait it out.

This is the question I asked a couple days ago. If post-vax people can pick up the virus and carry enough of it to be transmissible, but have enough antibodies to prevent actual infection in themselves.
