Do wish RS to someone with the common cold? Does RS only apply if it's life threatening?
Asymptomatic?

Sorry put this in the wrong thread before...

Honest question...Does an asymptomatic positive test warrant a "Refuah Sheleima" and why?

they still have the virus and even though they don't have outward symptoms there is still a lot unknown about the long term effects this can have

Do you know what a positive test means? Viral particles were detected in their body

The fact that they could still develop symptoms should be a factor here
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Oh, you mean they didnt play 2 out of 3? (Speaking from an abundance of experience)

Positive tests are just that, a test that showed you may be positive. Without symptoms you're not sick. You MAY be positive.

False. PCR tests can [almost] never detect virus particles where none exist. You canít be positive without the virus inside your nose.

A negative test doesnít show that there is no virus, it proves that *that* test did not detect virus. Which is why many venues require 2 negative tests.

Of course. Itís unknown whether they will still develop symptoms, or whether they will suffer damage as a result of an asymptomatic infection.

Sure, we should be very careful with our choice of words, but if it's to wish someone well, sfeika lkulah.

How about people who tested positive for cancer without any symptoms?

Ummm...malignant or benign?

I think we need a Refuah Sheleima flow chart.  ;D

Just as an aside there is an inherent difference between a cancer and a virus.

Ok, Its time for me to heed the advice of those that said I should come back and avoid the COVID boards. I think I'll avoid it all except the Maimonides bashing thread. I cant resist the temptation on that one.

Because the facts posted here donít fit with the beliefs you want to maintain? I havenít seen anyone attack you here or say an opinion, only point out that what you posted is factually incorrect.

Welcome back, by the way.
