Just got news of a certain young person who tested positive for COVID-19 before Purim. Has been asymptomatic for quite a while (since before Pesach) and just tested positive again (asymptomatic).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Interesting, why someone would take a test twice with no symptoms .
Did that person ever test negative, or test for antibodies?

This is still the most likely scenario.

I think, but am not sure, that there was a negative test. Recent positive test was upon admission to a medical facility for unrelated reasons.

We keep ramping up our testing but the fatality rate keeps rising. What's with these numbers?
Are you looking at the deaths per million numbers?  Those can't exactly go down...

No, just positive tests/deaths.

I personally know of no people who tested twice and were negative after a positive. I now know of 7 who tested positive a month later.

Why do you say most likely? Because of how much you know about the virus? Why canít you be honest and say this is possibly the answer?

There is ZERO confirmed data, including in that link. Just the hypothesis of one doctor.

For those of you who've been really staying home and not bringing anything into the house- are you starting to use the dry cleaners yet?

The deaths per 1Mp will only go up, the reason why the fatality rate is not changing, is because we aren't changing the denominator based on the millions who have had it and tested positive for antibodies (and millions who have had it and haven't gotten tested for antibodies). 
There is no question that the fatality rate is around 0.5% or less.

It is pretty hard not to bring anything into the house. I would have no issue with dry cleaners buy if you are staying at home do you need them?

When we going to see the fatality rate drop. We are testing way more and the rate is still not going down.

Dress clothing from Shabbos and the holidays. Also shirts. Obviously bringing in necessities, but haven't sent to the cleaners in a looong time.

Just hang them in the closet for a day or two when you get them back.

No need for patronizing language.

I was referring to the fact that a False negative is more likely then my hypothesis.

Iím glad you are positive beyond the shadow of a doubt based on a couple of unconfirmed studies. Iím not saying youíre necessarily wrong, but once again, youíre using language like ďno questionĒ when most evidence points to it being well above .5.

Please tell me, what is the fatality rate for flu?

My guess is right before the next spike. So near the end of May.
