This might be a huge breakthrough in knowledge.  It will not help cure anyone, but could be a vital tool in identifying risk levels of individuals assisting tremendously in the logistics of preventing spread.  If you take flu shots, Cuidado!{#Eek}
 
 

Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017–2018 influenza season

 
 
Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as virus interference. Test-negative study designs are often utilized to calculate influenza vaccine effectiveness. The virus interference phenomenon goes against the basic assumption of the test-negative vaccine effectiveness study that vaccination does not change the risk of infection with other respiratory illness, thus potentially biasing vaccine effectiveness results in the positive direction.

Buddy, first dog to test positive for COVID-19 in the U.S., has died
Even though the German shepherd likely had cancer, his health records show how little we know about animals and the coronavirus.

I have a friend who lives alone with his dog in a tiny house in the mountains of N. Georgia who just had a similar experience.  Food for thought.

If you're wondering whether the US will claim dibs? You can bet on it.

By the same token, wearing mask can be seen as an excuse not to social distance in a prudent manner meaning to only be around people if you absolutely have to.  That is what I worry about regarding the relatively new (to the western world anyway) "revelation" that mask should be worn and the obsession with them.  Are there people using mask as an excuse for otherwise unwise behavior regarding the virus and social distancing?  Better believe it.  How many people that are around large groups of people for long periods of time in the heat wear the mask 100 percent of the time they are in these conditions?  Not many. 
 
I'm not so sure there are very many people in close proximity to large groups of people for long periods of time these days.  In stores I've been to all the employees wear their masks when they're among other people.  I've seen some walk off to the side, away from others, to take it off for a while or go off to the side of the loading dock or parking lot to smoke or something.  Then again, it's not like I go to stores as often as I used to and I don't really observe the employees the whole time.  But as you've probably noticed, it's been a little on the warm side for the last few weeks in our section of the country so there is that reason why some may not wear their masks all the time.  I've seen guys doing construction, roadwork. and landscaping who pull their masks down when their not close to other people.  Even then, those aren't usually large groups - generally 3-5 guys.

 
It's all about shifting the odds. Social distancing, masks, washing your hands... If someone pulls their mask down now and then, it is better than never wearing it. If they pull it down where they aren't distancing, it's not good. If they never pull it up, it's bad.

Masks will be mandatory in public here, as of tomorrow. They have been in Melbourne for a few weeks. There are pesky clusters popping up and the state, with a population of 6.4 million (almost all in Melbourne) had 627 new cases. So like 10/100,000 population compared to Florida's 47/100,000. But who's counting? It is way too many. Our state borders are closed to non-essential travel. It is going to be a while before we get things stabilized.

I find I have a tendency to want to get too close when I talk to people while wearing  a mask because I feel like they can't understand me.

A friend of mine was telling me about a party he was invited to in a very wealthy suburb of NYC in CT over the weekend.  He assumed it was a small group.  Upon arrival, he was met on the driveway by the hosts and told he didn't need to wear the mask he had on (an uncomfortable suggestion about the vibe of the party).  After getting inside and grabbing a drink, he headed out back to find throngs of people without masks and little to no social distancing.  The first group of people he met included someone who professed to have just returned from LA, where they had several meetings with music artists/performers. 

He spent the next hour avoiding people and keeping his distance until he felt he could leave without negative repercussions. 

People in the Northeast now have a sense that they went through the issues, and are safer now.  Wrong.

Release the tiny spreader population and let's see how crazy this mess can get!  School is OPEN!!!

One of the worst effects though is that people (around here, anyway) were taking the drug or those zinc/Vitamin C drops and saying they were adequately protected and they demanded to go out to bars and weddings etc. It might help. It probably won't hurt. But it's not a substitute for physical distancing and masks, as long as the bug is still out in the wild. 

It's the same sort of phenomenon where you put a helmet on someone and they immediately do something that makes them glad they had a helmet on. Ski or bike like they're unbreakable.

obviously, thinking that you won't suffer any ill effects if infected is a mistake

masks and distancing work (unless you're a dutch trump supporter?)

depending on where you are it's probably next to impossible to eliminate the spread (long term)

but it looks like we can slow it down and make it more manageable
