I know a married couple who had some mild symptoms, like an allergy would have and they got tested and it came back they had covid 19 the doctor said they caught the "mild form" of covid. We have had 4 forms of covid in the last few years and they are like most virus, not that much comes from them, then the covid19 came, which is harsh and dangerous. I wonder when they test for covid19 if they are not picking up all the various forms and report them all as covid19 or not? I don't know if the test can tell one from the other of if they are all thrown in together. If so, that explains why so many "cases" are not harmful, about 90% or more. Can we trust government numbers? What do you think?
Ginger>I was under the impression that the 19 stood for the year 2019? As that is when it was first discovered?
bob>I didn't know that. It seems they found some blood samples taken in September on the East coast that had covid 19, so it was here long before we know it.
My step great granddaughter who is 7 just had it but only for a few days. Her school was full of it so they sent all the children home to be quarantined for two weeks. She went back to school for 2 days and then was off for Christmas break. That same weekend after she went back to school, all my older sons family went to Michigan to celebrate Christmas. The day after she returned home, she came down with a high fever and the sniffles. She was tested for the covid and found to have it. With all the people she was around at my son’s house, you would think they would have come down with it. Not one including her mom and dad and her mom is 4 months pregnant. Seems odd to me that not one person came down with it. I wonder if they give that diagnosis even if the person doesn’t have it?
bob>We do wonder about the numbers the government puts out and we should !
