Exactamente.
Fun fact: With an “e” at the end that’s actually a Spanish word, not French.

That tell's you something about my French! Or my Spanish? Or my English?

If the band would lower the volume so that people could talk to each other without yelling, there would most likely be much less spread
Yelling in someone's face is a sure way to send droplets into their lungs

Some quick googling showed me something I read a few months ago; the body is indeed better suited to repel infections at different times of the day

I wonder if there has been any analysis of time of day of Covid transmission... a lot of governments have some pretty high resolution contract tracing

RESULTS

We assessed 31,094 RT-PCR test results for SARS-CoV-2 collected by nasopharyngeal swabs from 28,101 patients ≥ 18 years old across 127 testing sites over ∼12 weeks within a regional healthcare system in the United States. Of these, 2,438 (7.8%) were positive for SARS-CoV-2. Between 16 and 1,232 tests per day were performed; the fraction positive varied between 0 and 18%, and 27,561 (88.6%) tests were performed between 8 am and 8 pm. Demographics were similar among outpatient sites (Table); patients in the emergency department and hospital were older than outpatients, and 65.9% of tests were for White patients, compared to the local community prevalence of ∼80%. A 24-hour sinusoidal variation in the fraction of positive tests was observed, with a peak in the fitted sinusoid at 1:49 pm, and 2.2-fold difference between the fitted peak and trough (Figure 1a). Less temporal variation was noted for tests performed in the emergency department.

What does the time of test collection have to do with the time of exposure?
LOL, it means that people are shedding most at that time

I don't see it having to be that way.

So people who are more likely to be positive come in to test at certain times of the day?
And inpatient tests are give to people more likely to be positive at those same times?
Or testers dig deeper at certain times of the day?

That has nothing to do with whether or not your body is more likely to fight off the virus at a specific time of day or not.

Just saw this thread. Can't believe no one mentioned hand shaking. I'd think that's a killer.

Explain this to me. The people who tested positive at 1 pm only tested positive because they were shedding more? And if the same people were tested at 8 pm that same day, they would be negative? If so, that says less about when people are most contagious and more about how bad our tests are.
