    I've thought about it. Not sure it's possible without sneaking into a hospital or something. Not gonna do that.

    Really, I'd think there's a high likelihood I've had my exposure to it.

    That's what's going to happen. There's no two ways about it.

    Maybe yes. Maybe no. I am pretty healthy, and don't worry about catching it. But I don't know what I might bring to someone else. And I have no idea what their risk levels are like.

    If it's not you, it will be someone else.

    Or the mask wearers who believe that a piece of cotton that can’t contain a fart or moisture from your breath is protecting them and ignore all the other steps, like distancing, hygiene...

    For the record I wear a mask in areas required or not possible to distance. I figure it hasnt been shown to actually hurt so even a 0.1% chance that it helps is ok by me.

    As people get out and try to return to normal they will get infected. In that manner it’s very much like the flu. If you don’t practice good hygiene you’re at risk.

    The other question is how many flu cases are going to get misdiagnosed as ChicomFluV19 in the coming months??

    Not pre covid
    Not post covid

    I don't care if you have something contagious or not, I've never been a big fan of getting someone else's snot on me

    My whole family, including myself have had the Covid after exposure in mid July. My wife and son were the sickest and I only had a few of the symptoms (fatigue, cough, loss of smell and taste). It started with my daughter and SIL who are both first responders and then ran through the family.

    We are waiting to see if we have built up any antigens against getting it again, but only time will tell. The virus can most certainly mutate just like the flu.

    I have a nagging feeling that the ChiComs are doing a bit more than laughing. They are observing our reaction and how
    government entities completely screwed up. From mixed messages and lies to the CDC not having anywhere near enough PPE.

    They are probably considering what sort of mayhem could be used to knock us down.

    Just for clarification. They’re checking your antibody level. That’s what provides protection. The “antigen” would be the actual virus.

    I distinctly remember that the hand wringers on this forum beating us upside the head with how "good" Australia was doing because they were reasonable, and shut everything down, and oh yeah, Orange Man Bad.

    I think we would all be a lot better off if we would just accept that this thing is going to HAVE to run it's course. All of this crap about stopping this virus is nonsense.

    Correct. CoViD 19 was a test run. The next virus out of China, perhaps this autumn, will be the real deal.

    And we’ve showed them just how easily we can be defeated from our president to the satchel mouthed knuckle draggers relying on Facebook and YouTube conspiracy theories as scientific information.

    "The Victoria police commissioner, Shane Patton, said a 38-year-old woman had also been charged with assault after attacking a police officer who had stopped her for not wearing a face mask."
    I heard that this type of behavior was Trump's fault, but he's not even their president. :dunno:

    If Australia records one new case they go bonkers and trace contacts, hunt them down and quarantine.

    A recent BLM protest was shutdown and the ringleaders were arrested.

    A black girl lied about where she went and she was hunted down and quarantined.

    No comparison to the US
