We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

I have been thinking this to be true for a very LONG time. It only makes sense. If people are spreading it without symptoms, they are not sneezing, hacking, and coughing. We all know if the spread would be that specific this would be a nothing burger. Who among us has seen anyone lately that was out in public with these symptoms? I also do not think the White House today was enlightened by this panel. They have been alluding to this possibility for a long while.

How 'bout using the blood/antibodies of a previously infected patient agent to throw 'dead' virus into the system and create misinformation/confusion among the living virus that allows your forces to get a head start and cut things off before they really get going?

I think O.City is the one that's been tracking that particular bit of research.

I dunno...that's a hell of a hard one.

Shit I went to Walmart the other day and there was a bunch of old people coughing and hacking so I turned around and went home.

I think the mention of doing it would help nudge those dragging their feet to take action now.

Convalescent plasma has been used in certain cases. Scaling that would present major challenges.

They're slow as fuck reaction, mixed with beaches/spring break and their huge old population is likely to make that state a disaster.

The IMHE model was off by 350% less than a week after it was released.

I mean c'mon. They're holding up a model that ate shit almost immediately and saying "any model that doesn't match this model that failed spectacularly almost immediately is clearly wrong..."

Ultimately I can't speak to their conclusions because there are a ton of unknowns here, but that particular analysis is horseshit. If my teacher wrote "show your work" on a test question and I responded w/ a picture of me pulling numbers from my rectum, right or wrong answer, I ain't getting much credit.

So in response "Be wary of anyone who presents the IMHE model as the Rosetta Stone"

Yeah...but does the analogy work?

I know full well I have no understanding at all of the science...

Probably not. Quite a few are going to make more money than they did.
