    My dad is still waiting for test results from almost two weeks ago for the Coronavirus.

    We are never going to contain it with that going on.

    Abbott labs came out with a test with 5 minute results, if they can get manufacturing sorted out quickly that'll be a game changer.

    Only 7.5% of the tests in Texas came back positive.

    Therefore the overwhelming majority of people who think they have it, don’t.

    I don’t think the testing of people with mild symptoms matters that much.

    IMHO, Everyone who is sick should quarantine for 2 weeks. Everyone who has trouble breathing should go to the hospital.

    If widespread testing becomes available so the vast majority of people can get tested, that may help prevent the asymptotic spreaders.

    Stores here still no flour, eggs, TP, paper towels, cleaners. Maybe 1/3 of normal meat inventory.

    Mrs Whistler came home with two packages of TP yesterday. Saw her loading her carry piece before she left, not asking any questions.
