It affects everyone differently. My girlfriend who’s got mild asthma has had it sitting in her sinuses and not so much her lungs like I have.

Curious how old are you?

How long are you contagious? I guess as long as your symptomatic but 17 days seems like a loong time.

Any idea where you picked it up?

36. I have no pre-existing lung problems like asthma. I don’t smoke.

Doctors aren’t sure how long you’re contagious after you’ve tested positive. They say you’re safe to go back to work after 14 days or symptoms improve. Also there’s no proof that once you’ve had it you can’t get it again.

It’s hard to say. I work at a radio station where most people are working from home. So it’s unlikely I got it there. Multiple people tested positive at my girlfriend’s lab but I showed symptoms before she did. It could’ve been a trip to Home Depot.

I doubt you picked it up at Home Depot. We'd know by now if places like this are hot spots based on the number of employees testing positive. Who knows I guess just my assumption.

Symptoms present themselves at different times separated by as much or more than a week so you may well have gotten it from your girlfriend.

Gas stations seem to be the no brainer to me. Gotta use a napkin or gloves. I'd be curious to see a test of the numbers of pump handles that test positive. I'd be willing to bet the majority.

Thanks for the feedback. Hope all goes well with recovery..

Gas stations and home depots are equally as dirty. No one at my testing site asked me anything about contact tracing. That means hundreds of people are being tested without being asked.

My point was I have no idea where it came from. Could be anywhere. Which is why masks, hand washing and sanitizing, and social distancing are vital.

The truth is, nothing is completely sanitary. I have a 45 mile commute to work daily, so I have to get gas roughly 2-3 times a week. I am in gas stations essentially daily. They are exceedingly dirty, but I have no real way to avoid them because of my commute. I ended up making the decision to not make major changes regarding my normal shopping habits etc because by this point, I've been exposed to it by now.

I've just grown to accept, that covid or not, I have to earn a living, and I'm not going to earn that living sitting at home. My wild guess is that a lot of people face my predicament, and we've all learned to deal with it in our own ways.

For the record, I dealt with symptoms eerily similar to this in March just prior to the lockdowns. There was no diagnoses because I was never sick enough to test, however given what we know now, I have reasonable confidence that I would have tested positive. I've been dealing with leftovers from that illness off and on for the last 4 months.

NEWS FLASH: Virus don't care about your economic plans . . . Don't care about your businesses . . . . Don't care when you want to reopen.

You want Business Back, you want customers to have faith/trust in returning to those businesses . . . .

Get the Virus under Control.

No. I want economists to be the experts on economic issues.

They all agree we’ve wrecked our economy, and we can’t continue to do so.

I don’t think Dr. Joe Blow Virus Alarmist understands the societal fallout from shutting down the economy indefinitely.

Look across the country right now. Murders are sky rocketing in the cities that locked down. This is just the beginning if the country shuts down again.

You want to talk about loss of life? Stop worrying about flu 2.0 and start worrying about Great Depression 2.0.

The US makes up approximately 4.5% of the World's Population, yet we lead the world in COVID cases, approximately 3 million and COVID Deaths, approximately 131,000.

Almost every other country dealing with this thing has managed to get it somewhat under control, flatten the curve, except The U.S.

Here, there is NO unified National Response to this crisis, Probably a major contributing factor to our inability to control the spread of the Disease.

The experts (scientists and Doctors not economists) warned the country that if states tried to open too soon, we'd see this thing spike again . . . . and here we are.

Almost every state that reopened early is seeing COVID spikes, and at least 20 states have now either stopped or reversed their attempted reopenings.

There are Hospitals in Fla. and TX that are rapidly approaching capacity. Your calling this "The Flu 2.0" is amusing, though I doubt Front line Doctors and Nurses who've been fighting this thing day in and day out would see any humor. Many of these people are working double shifts, some away from their families in order to limit infecting them, many have fallen by the wayside. BTW, lose enough Doctors and Nurses, and who is going to take care of the sick and dying? Your economists?

Nobody wants the country in lockdown indefinitely, sorry if this Health Care Emergency is an inconvenience to you. Everyone wants the economy reopened and a return to normalcy. But it's not going to happen just because you want it to, and it's not going to happen by ignoring this Virus. The virus don't care.

Like it or not, you get the economy back when you get the Virus under control , not the other way around.

No thanks. I’ll stick with the reopening now, thanks.

Already been through the whole discussion about the death count being bogus so I’m not going to rehash all of that.

By the way, spare me the lecture about the medical professionals. My brother is a doctor in a hospital, my younger sister is a nurse, and my mother is a nurse. They’re all in the hospital every day. I hear directly from them what they think about this, so you giving me your opinion of how they feel is irrelevant.

Sweden never shut down . . . . and their economy is still a train wreck, attributed to the virus.

Covid is like a lit match . . . throwing people together haphazardly is like throwing gas on that match.

You can't pretend it away, you can't ignore it away.

Until we accept the Science, and do what the Science tells us in order to get this thing under control, it will continue to run amuck, and the U.S. Will continue to be a COVID laughing stock.

Every economy in the world is a train wreck. But as I have said before, the steps taken by many countries to stop the spread of this are steps that simply put the United States is not set up to do.

While there is scientific proof those large scale enforced lockdowns and severe movement restrictions worked, the problem lies in that the US has never had the support system for its citizens to get them to follow through with such a plan. Attempts to issue a lockdown now would end in utter failure because there remains no system in place to pay people for the 6 or so weeks necessary to completely eliminate the spread.

At this point, our only remaining option is just ride the wave and hope we have the medical capacity to catch up.

Walmart and the State of Alabama agree, you gotta wear a mask in both.
