CDC said the virus lasted 17 days on surfaces on the cruise ship. That's a game changer!

CDC says coronavirus survived in Princess Cruise ship cabins for up to 17 days after passengers left
As far as I can tell from that report, they found RNA on surfaces for up to that long.

Finding RNA doesn’t necessarily = viable virus that can infect someone.

I’ll take a closer look but a quick read didn’t indicate that they were able to find viable infectious virus that long.

So, I have the Corona if I have a dry cough, but I may have the Corona if I have a wet cough, but I may also have the Corona if I have no symptoms.

If I get the Corona, I may just be sick for week, but I may also end up suffocating due to fluid in my lungs and even if I don't suffocate, it may make me blind, deaf and unable to taste.

Perfect.
Yep, the “common symptoms” checklist is turning out to be very non-specific. 80-90% of people with a clinical syndrome “consistent with COVID are testing negative so far in CT data set.

Annoying virus.

Red eyes may be a tell-tale sign of coronavirus: Nurse who treated patients in Seattle nursing home says they ALL shared the facial 'symptom'

She said redness around the eyes was the most important sign that someone was infected with the virus
Earnest said that if she told one physician that somebody had red eyes, a hospital bed would be made ready for them
'They have, like...allergy eyes. The white part of the eye is not red. It's more like they have red eye shadow on the outside of their eyes.'
But the American Academy of Ophthalmology sent an alert on Sunday about reports that the virus can cause conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the membrane that lines the eyelid.

Earnest said patients at Life Care Center often would go from having no other symptoms but red eyes to dying.
'We've had patients that just had the red eyes as the only symptom that we saw and go to the hospital and pass away,' she told CNN.

Connecticut: The criteria for screening for COVID-19 was also changed after a number of patients experienced abdominal pain and diarrhea.
My son-in-law is developing some symptoms now. They are just north of Boston.

Yep, it's pretty much like any other virus known to human medical science in that way.

Sad to hear this, hopefully it will pass.

My daughter is in Somerville, she lives alone. My 88 yr old father is in Amherst.

I'm in CT and as a father/son I do worry. It suxs I can't do a wellness check or even a drive by, not because of logistics but for everyone's safety.

This is the perfect time for degenerates to dip your toe into horse racing. It's the only game in town right now. And most of you guys are smarter than me, look what $5 gets you:

Multiple experts saying a peak will likely come in 2-3 weeks. Although that is sooner than originally expected it is not necessarily a good thing. It’d be closer to that big scary hospital crippling curve than the flat curve. Restrictions could be lifted but there will probably be ebbs and flows until there is a vaccine. Life won’t be exactly the same but we’ll get there

The biggest change we made - We ended up having to reschedule our wedding for next April. Two years of planning and they wouldn't issue us any sort of refund. Since it's already paid for we just ultimately decided to reschedule it.

Other than that we're both working "essential" jobs. Mine is at a greatly slower place than my fiance's. My son is home from school but since he got into a fight on the last day he probably would have been home right now anyway. Talk about luck. Hard to get suspended if he doesn't return to school for a couple of monthes after the fight.

I just found out that a guy who sits less than 5 feet from me at work's wife is hospitalized with corona virus. There's no reason I shouldn't have been working from home. I now need to quarantine myself until 4/6 and just had to tell my kid I won't be able to celebrate her birthday with her and my ex is blaming me for potentially exposing my kids..... So how's your day going??
