I have smell in one nostril 100% I think but in the other it's probably 10% at best.. and it's fricking with my taste.


The wife and I met with our Lawyer this AM to update our will and trust(s). He had COVID back in March and still hasn't gotten his sense of smell back .

re: SC and the COVID
With Clemson reporting 23 players tested positive I'm wondering if we ever plan on releasing our numbers? The results have to be in considering when they said they tested them.

re: SC and the COVID
You have the unique perspective of being a healthcare worker and somebody that caught COVID. What do you think about what’s going on?

We hit over 1,000 cases today but we’re also testing a helluva lot more. Is it something we need to be worried about or not?

Personally, my wife and I decided to stay vigilant because we have two young kids that somebody needs to take care of....which won’t be easy if we both get sick. Can’t ship them off to the old parents....

re: SC and the COVID
The odd thing is we are not seeing any kind of notable uptick in people presenting with Covid related issues or symptoms in the ER even with the increase in numbers.

Initially the #s increasing were basically in direct correlation with the increase in testing in that the % of positive results pretty much remained the same even tho the #s appeared much worse. The last week or so, however, that has changed and not for the better. Most of these cases are from ppl who are practically asymptomatic for the most part and are getting tested bc there are more sites and availability. However a lot are turning out to actively have had it when they were tested without any bothersome symptoms. Basically getting tested purely out of curiosity only to find out they really did have it without any reason to believe they'd actually be found positive.

re: SC and the COVID
So that sounds like good news as most people that get it aren’t in peril. So is the reality then to let this run except if you’re in a high risk group? That’s kind of been my thinking all along.

re: SC and the COVID
I've believed that would be best from a couple weeks' in when we saw it was mostly much milder than the media was making it out to be. Herd immunity is the way to go at this point.

re: SC and the COVID
We had our largest day yet yesterday with close to 600 cases. We've doubled our cases in about 3 weeks time. We are steady on the # of tests.

We still have have one of the lowest death rates in the country at around 1%. (FWIW, We are also the youngest state in the US).

re: SC and the COVID
We had 1800+ new cases reported yesterday in SC. Nearly 1000 the day before. Yesterday's was the most new cases in a single day we've had since we started keeping records.

But they are mainly asymptomatic or extremely mild cases for the majority.

re: SC and the COVID
You must have one hell of an immune system, especially with you having been in NYC during that massive outbreak.

And i went to the office for 80% of the shut down!
The last 20% of it scooted out East to the Hamptons to the Fiancés family beach house
WFH wasn’t as fast but I did my time when we let the LIers and CTers start coming back

They’ll still try to shut down everything again. I watched the news for the first time since February and they only reported the increased number of positive cases and how many more people have perished from the disease. No mention of an increase in testing sites or the number of those who had to be hospitalized, just new cases.

I have a feeling after July 4th you’ll see the cucked media go into panic mode again.

re: SC and the COVID
Still not over it completely... smell really hasnt gotten better in my left nostril. Probably why the first couple bites of whatever I eat has taste and then it's basically nothing. Deep breaths haven't been the same since I got this virus. Today was day 23.

You're lucky. That is the dream scenario.

re: SC and the COVID
That is exactly how the few people that I know who got it were. One of them tested positive with the nasal test because he was exposed, yet he never had a single symptom.

re: SC and the COVID
Cases are currently spiking in the states that opened up the earliest. The states that had the most protests are still reported far fewer cases than TX, FL, AZ, SC and others. Cali is an exception, but most likely their "protest effect" is still coming. It would be a lot easier to fully open up if people would use their common sense, maintain distance, and wear a damn mask. Otherwise, we will probably see another wave of shutdowns.

re: SC and the COVID
Thats the beauty of it. Noone knows for sure what the long term effects will be... because its new. Likewise, nobody knows for sure if or for how long a person will develop and maintain an immunity to it... because its new. And if our bodies are not capable of developing a meaningful long term immunity, a vaccine is not possible

re: SC and the COVID
Hospitalizations from Covid in SC stands at about 830. Out of 10,500 total hospital beds in the state, thats about 8%. Two weeks ago, when cases first started increasing, hospitalizations were just over 400, briefly dipping below 400 before doubling. The virus takes time to infect patients, plenty of the increased cases will be fine. But we could very well overwhelm SC hospitals by the end of July, especially if no further action is taken.
