We don’t know how many people have Covid 19
It appears that many people have Covid 19 but no symptoms but are still capable of transmission. Only testing a sample population will let us know this very important piece of information.
We need to test for antibodies and not just the virus
Most people who get the virus will recover. They will have antibodies and while they may not be totally immune they will have far greater immunity. If you are one of these people you may be able to do things the rest can not do. This will be very important for health workers. I would think that testing for antibodies would not be that hard but I don’t really know. IT could be the many health workers have already had the virus and don’t even know.
Developing drugs to treat will be faster than vaccines
I am not sure of this but it is a lot easier to test the drugs on people that have the virus than give a group of healthy people a vaccine and then wait and see if they develop Covid 19
My heart is breaking
Today, I was listening to the news about New York City and thinking of what is happening in Italy. I just started crying. I am also thinking about all the young people that have had the dreams dashed.
The USA has no national leadership
I don’t want to make this political. Those of you that know me, already know my views on Trump. It is about competence and trustworthiness.
