yeah this one I do think is a bit sensationalist - after that many cases if reinfection was a common occurance im thinking surely we’d be seeing a lot more of it - there’s always outliers in anything. The fact reinfections aren’t common makes me think at least there does appear to be some sort of immunity for at least 6 months or so
my rule of thumb is-there are exceptions to every rule of thumb...

The only real problem is that people are too afraid to die. Yeah, I said it. I am too. What this does is- there's no baseline to the discussion at all. I have seen nothing in the media about a compromise- what risk is acceptable, what isn't. What's the guiding principle? How much risk are we avoiding and how much are we taking? If we take no risk- then we die anyway-lack of business etc etc. In my opinion- it's all happening ad hoc. Just whatever feels good. so some things are open, some aren't, there's no real depth to any decision. That's okay. Civilisation isn't operating at high bandwidth. Anywhere. No conversation of that line is acceptable to anybody in the media, so we can't come together on any issue. You suggest a line somewhere- they label you a murderer. Since March. Then there's no business they will say the government did it. Who cares? The end result will be lack of ****. I am jaded.

So what I am saying is, nothing is optimal and everybody disagrees with everybody. There's no real "science" being followed, either way. I know many will disagree.

dont you have an antifa / BLM riot to get ready for? STFU and get off my dick.
See? Your problem begins with reading comprehension. I already told you I am on the Trump Train. And I am also a Marine Corps veteran - 100% for the red white and blue!!! So I totally OPPOSE Antifa/BLM and their marxist driven riots trying to overthrow our system of elected government

I also honest enough to oppose dummies in my own camp who make Team Trump look bad. The illiterate juice-head stereotype is so 90's.

So don't pretend to be mad at me over your own shortcomings. Stop with the childish outbursts. Follow the advice of our beautiful first lady - "Be Better"!

Agreed, ONE is potentially an anomaly. However now we have a first US reinfection case and 4th globally. Could be that natural antibody immunity is only 4-6 months?

Russians are claiming a study that says only those with severe comorbitities have risk of reinfection. I dunno. Just hope the short antibody defense doesn't negatively affect the vaccine development.

Oh ffs. As it stands you’d still say that there’s no evidence of widespread reinfection but if those numbers start to increase and immunity is a 4-6 month period then the whole fucking thing will blow up again.

ready for the whole corona thing to **** right off at this stage

i hope and pray so also...the plasma thing looked promising but reinfection throws that a curve ball, imo.

i predict many more shutdowns/closures in the coming fall/winter months, rather i agree with them or not is moot.

I agree, winter will be a bleak time unless a vaccine is found and rolled out (extremely unlikely imho). Typically a flu season places the medical services under higher levels of pressure so it wouldn’t take much of a ‘second wave’ for everyone to lose their ****.

I’m hunkering down in my home gym with the absurd amount of juice I’ve stashed and getting massive this Christmas. When we start to re emerge next year and the pressure is on to repopulate the earth after 90% are wiped out I want to be first on the remaining females list (just none of you fuckers tell them I’ve had the snip 🤣)

bro, I have no intention of repopulating the earth - I just want to be the first pick on the ladies ‘trying to repopulate’ the earth list.....

not sure if you have kids but for me the trying for kids bit is way way more fun than actually having them 😂

my stash includes plenty of cialis so I’m think I’ll be ok getting steel rod hard as and when required 😉

YUGE covid updates this week, with Pres. Trump and many from his inner circle testing positive for the virus!

Will this event now show that the latest therapeutic's and antibody treatments can beat this thing? If an obese 74 yr old can quickly recover there is real hope for getting gyms open again soon! (*second wave pending....)

Will Trump take a figurative victory lap when he gets out of the hospital (after his real one the other day in Limo1) to show no-fear of the virus? Or will he use this health scare to display a more serious cautionary tone regarding the virus?

Lib friends are really hyperventilating over that limo ride.... as if the secret service will take a bullet for the man, but not a chest cold!!

I can’t fathom being in a place where the gym is still closed. Ours was technically closed down for a couple weeks, but all members have their own key so some never stopped going.

i am 62 and no longer have any worries about contracting covid---trump put it to bed!!!

i said from the beginning i had little faith in a vaccine, it was going to be therapeutics for treating symptoms that would win the day, and here we are!!!

1) You know he had much better care than any of us could get right? Go try and get the regeneron cocktail and let me know how that works out for y’all.

2) Big difference between the USS taking a bullet when someone shoots at the President and the President being the one to (metaphorically) shoot the bullet at them. He didn’t have to needlessly expose those agents and he should show some common decency and respect for people who risk their lives for him and not have done that.

Hilltern - terrible Analogy. In this case Trump is not shooting bullets. And no secret service agent has ever died of covid. And these agents are generally young and healthy with no real risk from the virus. And everyone in the limo was wearing a mask, which we were told is the one thing needed to keep everyone safe from Trump!

Also with Trump being on the most advanced therapeutics in the world, having not had a fever for 48 hours, injected with antibodies... can anyone prove he was even contagious in the car??

Did those particular agents even volunteer for his car ride?? Remember - this isn't the white house with Hillary Clinton screaming at the agents and throwing ash tray's. LOL

But yeah... other than all that, a super duper risky bubonic plaque deadly PR stunt. :)

Finally cancelled my 24 hour fitness membership when I saw that they charged me $1.37 for an online class I didn’t sign up for.

Ugh... just checked. They’re open again but I just bought another gym membership somewhere else. Ugghhhhhhh!

It wasn’t the best analogy but you get the idea. Throwing yourself in front of a bullet is inherently different than the person you’re saving purposely putting you at risk they could otherwise prevent. And, an absence of proof that he was contagious is not proof that he was not contagious. Also, they edited his videos to remove him coughing, so clearly even with amazing therapeutics (regeneron cocktail) that mind you no one on this site could get right now he was still having difficulty. Hell, he still needed supplemental oxygen. If you told me we could all get his level of care that would be one thing, but we can’t. Furthermore, there appears to be long lasting effects from the virus in people who recover and/or are asymptomatic. Why not just try to avoid it like the plague that it is? I just don’t get why that would be a bad idea.

Hilltern - you said "And, an absence of proof he was contagious...." and you didn't need to go any further. Everything after that is just speculating for political effect.

This sudden media concern about the secret service ignores everything these same brave men have gone through in the past, for every protectee and their innumerable photo ops around the world. On both sides of the aisle. And given how it was well documented how Hillary treated these same agents without a peep from the leftist hacks, it makes my blood boil.

But to recap, I think former secret service agent Dan Bongino responds to this bogus hysteria the best.... agents are stationed near the president even when he had raging Corona standing guard 24/7. At the white house, in the helicopter, in the car. At ALL times. It's utterly ridiculous to attempt to made a political outcry over one moment of coverage among ENDLESS secret service coverage.

I don’t know about your workouts, but my workouts are not doable with a mask on. Any less effort isn’t even worth the trip to the gym.

My gym doesn’t require it either, but I keep mine on. Since it’s such a small gym, people are pretty good about wiping the machines down.

He had a mask on while he was in the vehicle with the secret service. I thought wearing a mask was the end all way to stop the spread?

I don’t know who ever said that’s the end all be all. Stop listening to idiots and/or straw manning. Masks just aid prevention significantly. Just as Trump could have not spent our tax dollars on a little jaunt around the block.

Man why are you so angry? Hearing my governor and Biden talk about masks as, yes being the end all to stop the spread of COVID, is making me sick. And name one president that hasn’t spent tax payers dollars on a “jaunt around the block” or a seemingly needless trip somewhere.

I'd make that decision based on personal health. If under 50 and without comorbids (overweight, asthma, heart conditions, etc) I'd not worry so much. But for those more at risk there is nothing wrong with living a more cautious lifestyle until out of fall flu season!
