The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them

quote [ The exposure to virus x time formula is the basis of contact tracing. Anyone you spend greater than 10 minutes with in a face-to-face situation is potentially infected. Anyone who shares a space with you (say an office) for an extended period is potentially infected.
Symptomatic people are not the only way the virus is shed. We know that at least 44% of all infections--and the majority of community-acquired transmissions--occur from people without any symptoms (asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic people). ]

Fine illustration of how being outside, touching surfaces or shopping will not likely give you an infection, whereas spending a day at your workplace might.

Lots of examples and a fatalist approach suggesting we get used to evaluating these settings.

More recovered coronavirus patients are testing positive again

quote [ South Korean officials say that more than 116 people have tested positive for COVID-19 ?after having been cleared of it previously, Reuters reports.

There are plenty of caveats to South Korea?s plans, though. According to Jeong Eun-kyeong, director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), the virus may have reactivated itself rather than the patients being re-infected. There?s also the possibility that early COVID-19 tests showed false positives. ]

Greetings from the west0coast "nation-state."I've accepted the fact that the council of Democratic governors plus de Wine and a couple of Republicans are all the government that the United States really has left at this point.

Corona News Bulletin

quote [ If people are infectious before they fall sick, then everyone should wear face masks ?when going out in public, in one additional societal effort to slow the spread of the virus down,? says Thomas Inglesby of the John Hopkins Center for Health Security. ]

Sorry, feeling compelled to post a bunch of trending links for your information. Do you have anything to add? We're missing news on political solidarity.

Hold the line

quote [ You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk. [?] If your son visits his girlfriend, and you later sneak over for coffee with a neighbor, your neighbor is now connected to the infected office worker that your son?s girlfriend?s mother shook hands with. [?] This is not a joke or a hypothetical. ]

Ack, Medium! But helpful advice to pondering parents.
