The WaPo states that this patient says," When the test came back a few hours later, I wasn't surprised to learn that I had the coronavirus. Later, the Tokyo swab confirmed the result - I had caught the virus even before I left the ship."
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that the CDC sent the blood samples back to Atlanta (during this time of the outbreak), and it took a couple of days to get the results back.

I'm very skeptical of this WaPo story and find it suspect.

And Oregon has just reported it's first case of CoVID19.


Shhh, you can't placate the populace unless you use platitudes. And you are not doing that with your factual fidgy widgy.

Stop it, post haste. Lest you put the fear of man into the slaves.

Wife and I had it a month back. Was the weakest virus I've ever had. Hypetrain.


Laboratory confirmed or are you speculating?


Damn it man, they sneezed. At first, it was life and death, they gave each other tissues and wiped each others noses.

And beat that pesky virus with one motion of the hand across each nostril. It's just that easy to beat.

Good thing it escaped early and before it was tweaked to perfection with a 100% fatality rate... now it's just an angry flu. and you never want to make a flu angry. You wouldn't like the flu, when it's angry.... your snot turns green and big and is hard to blow out your nose.

it's arms are too big.

U till the actuaL severity and effects of any new disease is known,of course every precaution is going to be in effect.The more we learn of this the less it worries me.Seems to be about like a bad flu which usually kills around 30000 people a year.Now it were something like Ebola or Marberg the panic would be justified.This doesn"t seem to be worth the panic.a reply to: Asgaard

And that will be the reality for 80% of people who get this.

Truth time, my family may have already had it. We had contact with people from the China at the right time, and all came down with a nasty cold that sounds about like this description not long after that.

Not holding my breath that was it, but it may have been.


ketsuko, you should get a blood test that shows the inflammatory results of the blood test. Your husband will know about it. www.webmd.com... The test is usually done with coughs and chest pains that are 2 days old or more.

Also I like to keep my eye on the ball not the players if it's no big deal why is the world governments acting in a way that could only be described as self destructive unless it was infact a big deal

The internet and fear are happening.

Unlike in the past in today's world fear can be spread very fast across the globe making everyone act against their own self interests.

The rich and powerful are just as susceptible to fear as anyone else.

SARS, H1N1, Zika Virus, Ebola, MERS...we panic every time, but in reality we’ve been fairly resilient.

actually a finger tip blood/oxygen sensor might be more useful theyre not really that expensive to obtain - believe below 90% check with doctor.

95% is where you should stay at or above. If you dip down into 93% you should be concerned. Anyone with COPD will have naturally lower levels and may be 88-93% baseline.

As an asthmatic I stay at 95% fairly consistently, I don't get worried until I dip below 90%. Although on an airplane I will routinely dip into the high 80's, and I travel just about every week twice a week, so I know what I'm in for. I was in Reno for work once and decided it might be nice to drive up to Lake Tahoe for dinner one night. I got to the top of the mountain and luckily there was a fire station there, was hitting 85% due to the altitude. I got some oxygen and an escort back down the mountain. Shame too, looked like a lovely town with some nice restaurants.

Pandemic refers only to numbers. It never did consider severity or mortality.
It's people reacting to the word pandemic that is the problem.
Poeple imagine Europe in the 1340s where two thirds of humanity died but that's not going to happen now.

I have very severe asthma, healthy people will have normal rates around 97-99. If you are healthy and drop to 95, you are sick. If you go into the ER and drop below 90, they will start considering putting you on a ventilator.

You can get use to long-term low levels, so yes, people with COPD can get use to very low rates.

But don't worry, your body does a good job of letting you know when your oxygen rate drops way too low. You get tired, disoriented and things turn gray - it's like you are watching a black and white movie - very strange.

Yep, this was exactly what started happening when I got to the top of the mountain there outside Lake Tahoe.

a reply to: OccamsRazor04

Have not had to go to the ER for an issue since middle school, reasonably well controlled as long as my allergies play nice. I just have minor issues in high altitude places, Denver wasn't exactly a fun week but I managed it. Driving through the Blue Ridge Parkway there is one spot here in NC that doesn't play well with me, but it's only a few minutes of dizziness before I get back down far enough. I do worry about something like this virus causing havoc with my asthma, but what are you gonna do. I take my regular precautions for cold and flu season, that's really about the best I can do with it.

Were you both tested for the cv, and did the tests come out to be positive? could you take a snap shot of those forms and post it on here as proof (barring any personal id of of course) Thanks!

Great news you are both well now!
