Whether proven positive or simply exposed, they still can't work either way. So it's a problem regardless. Irregardless as well.

But I'm sure it will all work out when only a few of them die or become seriously disabled.

The school openings is going to drive infections and deaths to new heights, and they will be shut down in a few weeks.  Everyone knew this would happen, so every politician and administrator that pushed for in person opening is a murderer.

I live in Gwinnett.  We are doing digital learning.  That said, the reason so many teachers were probably exposed, was because past week the parents were meeting with the teachers in person, in small groups, in order to get text books and lesson plans.

If the men behind the Trail Of Tears had wanted to kill people, they would have dug ditches instead provisioning for a long walk.  But they knew people would die.  We remember them as monsters for it, and rightly so.  History will hate Trump and the depraved amoral weaklings that back him.

Zinc, alongside vitamin D, is one of the deficiencies that has been linked to worse outcomes. The vitamin D link is better because it far better explains why a lot of Mediterranean Europe was hit so hard: Because believe it or not, that is where the worst of vitamin D deficiency is.

Because you see, "it's always sunny out" so "there's no need to fortify milk." Except that people may not spend a lot of time outside, or wear covering clothes, or any number of other things, and end up badly short of it. Whereas in northern Europe people tend to get a bare minimum amount from e.g. milk

Not surprised. Here in San Diego only like 9% of positive COVID patients need to go to the hospital, whereas it was a lot higher in NYC from what I remember.

/still, hydroxychloroquine does nothing at best and makes things worse at worst.

"It's just a flu"
"Herd Immunity"
"China will just magically make all the PPE for us with just in time contracts!"
"we get everything from China"
"we also have more money to vacation and bring it back"

Kind of forms ideal conditions for spreading, especially since the idea of it spreading through the air wasn't proven, and airports became clustered in NY.

Say, did NY get hit hard first as well?

Honestly I wish people would just say no. Yeah it sucks when you do but at least you'll be alive afterwards which is better then dead because you didn't. Keep it all remote for now or make an ICU appointment ahead of time.

Why not test them and put them back to work if they are negative? That's what we did with 5 of our employees last week.

At least in Charlotte, testing is widely available. A little slow though.

And yes, this is a problem. A huge farking problem. So farking solve it already!

Official words are words that are in common usage, no more, no less.  English isn't a static language, to the extent is is a single language in the first place.

Add copper and manganese. It helps regulate ATP production and cellular inflammation while you have covid.

So maybe your kidneys will make it.
