Re: One Sided Reporting
correct. and those are only the KNOWN infections.
It is quite possible that back in December and January, when travel between U.S. and China was still open and on-going, that a LARGE number of asymptomatic people (and a few symptomatic ones) traveled with Corona Virus from China to the USA and landed in California, exposing California to the virus back in December and January [when I quite likely would have been exposed].
Back in December, the company I've been doing contract work for had a manufacturing related problem with a piece of equipment that's important to a new contract. To improve quality, they sent a few engineers to China [not sure where, I did not go] where they worked on getting the assembly-related issues and some design issues resolved. So far so good, right? After coming back, one guy was feeling kinda sick [I was in the office that day] with symptoms similar to Corona virus. I jokingly said that he'd make all of the rest of us sick, too, even though we were all 'generally careful' to not be exposed. But a week or two later, I had mild symptoms similar to what is describe for Corona Virus [and so did my kid, who still lives with me as an adult]. AFTER that was over, Trump issued the travel ban to China when they disclosed that the virus was spreading in Wuhan and they were trying to mitigate it. No blame, just fact.
And so, did I get Corona Virus? I think I did. And so did anyone I came into contact with, mostly grocery stores and other people at the office. But there were NO KNOWN CASES of this virus being published in the news. And yet, it was probably HERE.
And so, have people in California ALREADY been largely exposed to the Corona Virus? Not from me (or my co-worker) per se, but by the MANY THOUSANDS of people who were flying back/forth to China over that 2-3 month period from November 2019 through January 2020.
Given THAT, what are the NEW projected numbers for fatal corona virus cases? They might be a whole lot LOWER... [and if there's a test for Corona Virus antibodies, and I "pass", I should be able to return to work on-site, right???]
