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!

You do get immunity to the common cold, but it usually only lasts 12-18 months. Iíd guess Covid-19 is similar to SARS in that the worse the infection the longer the immunity. For asymptomatic people thatís probably only 12-18 months, but also means a reinfection would likely be mild as well. Vaccine will help, but itís going to be like the Manhattan project trying to vaccinate the entire world before immunity wanes. Will be interesting, but the Science is still developing. One cool thing I read is that the Oxford vaccine is helping people develop three times the amount of antibodies as a typical community spread Covid case. Iíd assume one of these vaccines is going to provide a response akin to 3-5 plus years of immunity. That would be enough to eradicate this damn virus.

So you could in theory go back to work shortly, get laid off and directly go back to drawing unemployment.

Up to this point, there hasnít been proven reinfection that Iíve seen or read. That would go against everything we have so far in virology for the most part. Immunity may wane but I would imagine itíll last atleast a year or so and even then you may be able to get it again but it would be very mild

Because it isn't just like influenza. For billionth time. Influenza mutates much faster than sars-cov-2.

Hereís how restaurant workers can get free coronavirus testing in Kansas City

Restaurant workers in the Kansas City area will have the chance to get free coronavirus testing during a limited three-day event next week, the Kansas City, Missouri Department of Health announced Wednesday.

Staff from the health department and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services will administer up to 2,000 coronavirus tests at the Homefield Sports Facility at 5300 Bannister Rd. from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 13 through July 15.

Anyone being tested must make an appointment in advance. Restaurant workers who live in Missouri can register for a time online or call 877-435-8411. If there are vacant appointments, others outside the restaurant industry will be allowed to sign up at some point as well.

The department wanted to give the opportunity for restaurant workers who arenít insured through their employer to get tested for COVID-19, said Naser Jouhari, Environmental Health Services Division manager.

ďIn addition, we wanted to protect them and protect patrons walking into these establishments,Ē Jouhari said, ďmaking sure that employees are distant, and they wonít be carrying COVID-19 while they are serving [food.]Ē

The number of new coronavirus cases has continued to climb. The Kansas City metro saw its second highest increase in COVID-19 cases Wednesday since the pandemic began, with 335 new coronavirus cases confirmed. The metro has now surpassed 10,000 confirmed coronavirus cases.

Did you read that article though? It's likely she's still shedding from the first time but isn't infectious.

Sure, some people will go back to normal, but many won't.

Airline travel was never shut down and customers are way down. Vegas opened up and casinos are empty enough they aren't making money. Travel and jobs related to it are, or at least were, a big part of the economy.
We won't be normal if we're sitting at home either.
