    Best wishes to all. My wife and I have both been through it. Fortunately with a good outcome.

    So he says they were super careful, everyone always wore masks.. but his entire family still got it?
    Why wear a mask if it didn’t help?

    Well, based on the recent videos from Dr. John Campbell that summarize some studies that have been done, the advantage would be that wearing the mask doesn't necessarily keep you from getting any amount of virus, but it has been shown to reduce the overall quantity of viral particles and lessen your viral load thus giving you a milder version of Covid-19. General floors instead of ICU; sick at home vs. hospitalized; or even, asymptomatic vs. symptomatic.

    Apparently the “close family friends” who gave it to him and his family were not actually as “disciplined” as he thought.

    I'm thinking he's healthy enough to get through it without any problems at all.

    Remember a virus killed the Martians in War of the Worlds. (No he was not in it). ;). IMO he looked off his “feed”. True his TV/Movie persona is always hyped up... but IMO he looked a bit drained.

    Actually, the Martians were killed by bacteria.

    Ride what out?

    The majority of people who test positive aren't sick with it. For most others it's just a cold/flu.
