    Well after 8 days from being tested, the HCA Clinic finally got our results.

    Both positive.

    Since Marilyn was sick at least 3 days before we were tested, I suppose we are at least 12 days into this. I never really got very sick. I have felt a little weak, but no fever, no congestion, no worse than a cold. Keep in mind, I had just had all of my teeth pulled and the implants installed with the temporary Teeth.

    Marilyn ran a fever for 4 days, but since has just felt weak with occasional upset stomach, which has subsided since Sunday.

    Thatís how it has been. Next Tuesday we will get an instant test at a facility off Rayford road to see if we are still positive. There we will get results in one hour.

    For now, stay at home in quarantine.

    Appears Texas is seeing a bit of an upward swing and hopefully it won't last for very long. As the president says the more you test the more you find and hopefully that is all it amounts too and not a new round of the past.

    Check the deaths, that's the real number to watch.

    The way I read it, the number of tests haven't increased lately, but the number of cases found has more than doubled from 20,000 odd a day to up to 50,000.

    If it is no worse than what I have felt, you would think itís not that big of a deal. My wife was certainly worse off, but nothing worse than the flu.

    And then you hear of seemingly healthy people dying.

    My best hope is that now that I now have a certain immunity.

    But then, nobody can even agree on that.

    The Beat Goes On.

    Now some are saying that among those who have developed antibodies that the antibodies seem to be disappearing from some of those folks. Does that mean that they have now become as susceptible as they were before all of this? Stay tuned.

    Butch,

    ""Check the deaths, that's the real number to watch.""

    In Europe, we had many people who died alone at home from ?????. The ""supplementary death count", with regards to "normal" / "usual" death count is considered as cov impact. Not really true either.

    IMHO, I prefer look at the number of people who arrived in hospital with heavy cov symptoms, got tested + and need some cares in hospital. Fortunately, one doesn't necessary die when entering cov+ in hospital for support, neither mandatory need to be put into coma & breath assistance.

    Of course, as said by President Trump, the more you test the more you found. +test numbers are not representative.



    Jackie,

    ""My best hope is that now that I now have a certain immunity.""

    Don't bet too much on this.

    It is highly discussed here between scientists. One can make antibodies to fight a virus, but NOT get the memory of it for next time, therefore allowing imune system to react at first sight of virus. And even if one imune system has the memory of it, it is not sure that recognition will "trigger" the imune system reaction to fight the virus.

    This seems to be quite frequent with known coronavirus. Good examples of this are """gentle""" or ""classical/seasonal"" coronavirus causing people to have "cold" or rhinopharyngitis in winter. (aka OC43, NL63, HKU-1, 229E coronavirus).

    At the moment, here, just nobody knows about becoming imune to covid 19 once you had it.



    ps : I did not invent warm water. Just got May 2020 special covid 19 edition of "Science et Avenir" open on the desk. Just trying to stay tune and share with whom it may interest.

    Viruses self mutate- which may or may not be recognized by your immune system the next time around. Cov19 is particularly nasty as it has the ability to envade cells- this is was unknown prior to this pandemic. The key to a vacine in this case is to develope a way to block this ability. Progress has been made in this area.

    So is it true as one comment poster to a Yahoo article said that there has never been a successful vaccine for any corona virus and that the odds of having one for COVID-19 are slim?

    What can be said with certainty is that there is an unprecedented push for a vaccine for this particular Corona virus so if a vaccine is possible, odds are very high that one, or more, will be developed.

    Thanks. The high participation in producing a vaccine suggests that the virus is more virulent than some would have us believe.
