I think MaggieO is in the US. I could be wrong.
Got plenty of ingredients, I think I may be in need of a new right kidney, its been giving me some gyp. So in regards to having a drink, I'm about as useful as a one legged man in an arse kicking contest.Gee whiz mate, good luck. I hope you've got your brew supplies sorted!
I am in the states. My doctors practice is connected to one of the major local universities medical department.Mind if I ask who you got that through? I was under the impression they didnt have an accurate test yet
Good luck and stay safe mate. Hope you're not in Arizona, wherever you are, take care.I am in the states. My doctors practice is connected to one of the major local universities medical department.
Anyway, he said they are finding the test they are using is 95% accurate. I feel pretty lucky.
When China's reported cases nearly stopped, so did their reported deaths. Becauser of the course of clinical disease, generally at leasty two week to death and often much more, the death count should have risen for some time. Their authorities are poor liars and almost certainly have understated cases and deaths.
Elevated temperature is a symptom. Unreported cases are not necessarily asymptomatic. They include people with symptoms that are not severe and who either don't believe they have COVID-19 or believe it and don't want to report it.So if someone is asymtomatic, do they have an elevated temperature? And as brewers we know some of these thermometers just have got to be dodgy. It truly is the new-age, (apologies to any hippies on the site). I'm in Victoria so I think I'll start panic-brewing again.
My wife and I had no symptoms period. No fever, cough, nothing.So if someone is asymtomatic, do they have an elevated temperature?

At least if half the people with it are running a fever you can catch half the people.Yep.
Screening for temp has it's flaws but it's the best we can do. My guess is that, since the public does not want self-isolate and follow the rules, we may as well go the way of Sweden.
When this thing started the world was thinking getting it was a death sentence. Now it doesn't seem to be too bad. People are getting tired of isolating, no sports, limited restaurant options. They are not seeing their friends and family dying off like they expected. People are no longer convinced all the isolating etcetera is helpful.I can believe that. What worries me is that people in my suburb don't seem to care about the virus at all.
Half of one percent (mortality/infection ratio) was predicted and that has turned out to be true enough. What the public does not see is the disruption this causes inside our hospitals. Surgeons, doctors and nurses are absolutely filthy at the behaviour of the general public.a death sentence
That would make sense, those with it bad would be coughing, possible runny nose ect. More chance of fluid exchange.At least if half the people with it are running a fever you can catch half the people.
There is theory that those people that are asymptomatic are spreading it far less than people that really have it bad.
