re: Has anyone else been positive for Covid?
My non-medical self has always thought that individual immune system's mattered more than blanket what-ifs. Where one person may have fought off or been exposed to something that another person hadn't. Or even having maybe been exposed to 3**x times the pathogen's of the next guy might help. Like how a case of cowpox's also inoculated against smallpox.

re: Has anyone else been positive for Covid?
I reckon I’ve been lucky. I was exposed in the beginning of the mess by multiple positive patients that were both asymptomatic and symptomatic, but because of the time frame, it was either hard to get tested or before testing occurred. Since, I have worked on Covid-19 unit almost daily. Of course, the company set universal masking into place almost from the start and now we have an abundance of protective gear specifically for the outbreak (N95, KN95, gown, etc). We had a shortage, like many other hospitals, in the beginning, and at times we were told to wear paper scrubs and whatever else you could find.

Also, nobody else in my family has tested positive.

re: Has anyone else been positive for Covid?
I have been exposed but haven't got it nor my family. A few of my Co-workers had it right before we started working from home. I donated blood recently and came back negative for the anti-body. So I think there are other factors that may be involved and it will be interesting to see what the peer reviewed studies have to say as we go along.

I'm hopeful these are just short term issues, but there may be longer term problems for those that have had it.

This article from 2 days ago has a link to a new JAMA study that, while still early and needing more data and review, says that the potential for long term heart damage may be possible.

My 33 year old sister in law that had it in March now has a leaky heart valve that she has to go back and get more tests done on to see if it needs some sort of repair.

Talked to my wife a hour or do ago. The hospital she works at is now over capacity with covid patients. The ward is completely full and they have patients that they dont have a spot for.

Just passing on information.

That's scary. I have a relative who went into the hospital in June with urosepsis that caused afib. She was moved to a rehab facility at the first of July, and three days after release was back in the hospital diagnosed with covid (assuming it came from the rehab place) and still in the hospital.

On a more positive note, a friend's wife was diagnosed with it the second week in July. She was in the hospital on oxygen, but they treated her with remdisvir and after about 10 days she went home.

As of last week a friend of ours(Prof at Emory and works at Grady) said that Emory, Emory Midtown and Grady in Atlanta were at ~90% capacity for Covid patients. When they get to full capacity, they have to make decisions on who to give treatment to and who not to unless they can get to another location that has room for them.

Governor Miss MeMaw extended Alabama's mask order until end of August. With the exception of kids younger than 2nd grade, they can just spit and breathe their Rona germs wherever they want.

I think Kemp said they were reopening the World Congress Center for overflow. I assume that hasn't been filled yet
