According to the CDC website, people without symptoms no longer need to be tested for COVID-19—even if they have been in contact with others who have tested positive.

"If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms, you do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one," reads the new update.


Quote
This news seemed to surprise Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and a member of the coronavirus task force. "I was under general anesthesia in the operating room"—to remove a polyp on his vocal cord—"and was not part of any discussion or deliberation regarding the new testing recommendations," Fauci told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who read Fauci's statement on air. "I am concerned about the interpretation of these recommendations and worried it will give people the incorrect assumption that asymptomatic spread is not of great concern. In fact it is."


So CDC is out of its gotdamn mind and put out new recommendations while Fauci was under for surgery.

Its a nice read, but i only got halfway cause reading about the specifics makes me nauseous.

This is good, solid work, and the links support the bulk of the text at a skim. Good find.

The vitamin D mention is potentially a hugely important one. It's very readily available and, as the author notes, a significant amount of the population is already deficient in it. If that can help alleviate symptoms, in conjunction with more intensive treatments...

It learned me that:

a Covid-19 infection generally begins when the virus enters the body through ACE2 receptors in the nose.

This just when I thought I had the whole breathing thing figured out.

This is all very alarming, still it strikes me that this whole thing has been allowed to progress to a stage where it seems like it may become a "new normal", we had a chance early on to contain our exposure but given how we proceeded, I don't see US citizens being welcome in other countries, especially given a few articles I read about Canadians reporting foreign license plates. Other than that, I don't know what to say, other than this all is very concerning and seems like something we'll definitely end up paying for for generations.
