I agree. And, by the way, I meant to write that he didn't have any prior medical issues. I have now edited the original post.Now imagine if the hospital didn't have any ventilators because there were 8-10x more people that need ventilators to live than there are ventilators. This healthy 45 year old man would have died.
Because that's what the governer of your state says is going to happen in 7 days.
Those of you saying "it's just the flu and only old people will die" need to stop. This virus is 500 times more deadly for people between 20-50 than the flu is. The fact that there is a pocket of sentiment that "it's just the flu, party on!" is going to get people killed. If you are contributing to that sentiment, you are part of the problem.
I disagree about sickness - at least as a function of how well those in need can be treated. The percentage of known infected requiring hospital care is very high, substantially higher than seasonal or H1N1 flu. When numbers get high enough in any given community, the stress on the healthcare system grows to the point of breaking. Even if survival rates are quite high, hospitalization can drag them down if those in need are turned away due to limitations.It's not mostly true... it's true... in all but some rare outlier cases....
I have gotten pneumonia from a case of the seasonal flu and had to be hospitalized at age 32... It happens.... mostly because (normally healthy) people wait too long to address it...
The issue with this is not mass death or extreme sickness... It never was.
It was always the fast spread rate, and the lack of a defense for it.... overwhelming the system.
Same, just saying he isn't a guy in his 20s, that's all guys. There are people, like me and you, in their 40s, dying and/or suffering from this.Not sure what age you are, but as a guy in my mid 40s, Payton being in his mid 50s or whatever is maybe not young, but also isnt elderly, which is the most vulnerable population when it comes to Covid 19.. Perspective is funny.
That was exactly my point for those sensitive ppl. We ALL knew things needed to change from normal. This has been building for weeks and everyone only thinks of themselves. What about those who have pre-existings issues who Payton himself may have exposed while traveling?Living his normal life.
That's the point.
That's why we all are (or should be) practicing extreme social distancing.
If we live our normal lives, we all get it around the same time, our health care system gets overwhelmed, and lots of people die who would not have had to die for want of ventalators, ICU beds, etc.
I got you, and see where you were going with it. Keep your chin up.What I’ve been thru, the utter agony, I am not at all scared of this, for me.
And I’m inside can’t really get out, so I’m not spreading. And I’m very hygienic.
I am not in agony, and that means I’m thankful and not scared of this virus.
Not down playing it... never did... just providing facts....I mean, if you assume that the infection rate will be 100% (or even 50%), then well over a million people will die in the United States from it. I think that counts as mass deaths don't you?
Don't think Italy, Spain and other countries will agree with you.This ^
And I wish more people understood this.... Unless Sean becomes 80+ years old tomorrow, secretly has lung or heart issues, develops an immune deficiency, or is a closet asthmatic... He'll be fine in a couple of weeks... That is, if he ever gets any symptoms at all.
The issue with this virus was never how deadly it was, or how insanely sick it was making people...
It was always an issue of contagiousness, and a lack of a vaccine overwhelming the medical system and shutting down commerce.
Thanks... Stay safe... and informed.
The test results means nothing to patients. The test has false positives and negatives. If you're symptomatic and you don't require hospitalization...you will be recommended to self-quarantine for 14 days regardless of the test results. It's honestly debatable to get tested because in order to do so you have to seek medical attention and run the risk of spreading the virus. People are getting so hung up on the test results...they have no effect on management right now. They are strictly being used for epidemiological reasons right now.Both on topic but off the actual thread topic...
My son was tested for CV and other illnesses yesterday at a local hospital in Sulphur, LA. He was negative on everything except CV.
He's a healthy 25 year old, so even if he has the virus, we're not really worried.
Reason for this post is that he was told he should get his results early next week. I've searched online, but finding facts you can trust on this topic is tough. I just find it very concerning that it's taking that long to get test results, not because it changes anything... Doctors orders will be the same whether he has it or not. But if it's taking up to a week to get some test results back, that means the #'s we're seeing are up to a week behind.
Some of what I've found says that CDC and state testing sites should give results within 48 hours or so, but facilities that use independant labs can take up to a week. I'm not sure how accurate this is. If anyone has any information that could clear this up for me, I'd appreciate it.
