On the contrary, the asymptomatic carriers are exactly what makes coronavirus dangerous.  For most people the symptoms are either not there, or they are so mild that they escape notice.   When everybody was sick at our office in early March, we just thought a bad cold had gone around. Only later when our colleague tested positive when he was hospitalized for his heart attack did the possibility that we had the covid and not a common cold occur.

BC is talking about, sometime soon, beginning seratology testing to try to determine how far the virus has actually spread.  As a close contact of someone who tested positive, I will probably be among those contacted by BC CDC for testing.  I'm interested to see what the results are.

I think I have read that seratology studies, some of which have been done at small scale already, have found that more people than expected have coronavirus antibodies in their systems.

I guess it depends on whether you care about human costs, or economic costs.
It seems you have weighed in.

Keeping things locked down has its own human costs. People are isolated, they're losing their livelihoods, they're facing anxiety over money, they're stuck in their homes with partners who might be angry or abusive.

The malls are wide open in Winnipeg. They might as well be closed. They're empty.

Well said.  Nobody seems willing to acknowledge that even a little.  Iím not sure why, but itís probably agenda driven.

Even though restrictions have been lifted, a lot of businesses chose not to reopen yet because they didn't want to risk it. They also figured (probably correctly) that nobody was going to show up anyway.

Correct on both counts from what I see. I suspect both sides of the glass aren't yet comfortable taking risks. I suspect we here in Canada will be watching closely to what happens as our neighbors to the south try to open up.

I will.  If you actually cared about the science youíd know the risk to younger healthy people is extremely small.  You guys are bay shit crazy and hysterical.  Pun intended.

Georgia confirms more than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases in 24 hours

Quote
Everyone with more than three brain cells to rub together tried to tell dubiously elected Republican Gov. Brian Kemp that his science-free idea of reopening Georgia amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic was a terrible idea. Even strange South Carolina racist Sen. Lindsay Graham thought Kemp was moving too fast. Now, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that within a 24-hour span, the Peach State confirmed more than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases.

On Thursday {April 30}, the Georgia Department of Public Health had a confirmed number of 26,000 cases in the state. On Friday, with 164,465 tests reportedly administered, that number has shot up to 27,023. This comes after Gov. Kemp decreed that gyms, barber shops, massage parlors, tattoo parlors, and bowling alleys could reopen today, with restaurants and theaters being allowed to reopen on Monday, May 1.

D'oh! (in a Homer Simpson voice)

Floridaís new cases actually declined by 14% compared to the previous week, and Georgiaís fell by 12%Ē between May 4 and May 11, Axios reported

Welp!  Bwaaahaaaa.  Just admit that you have no idea what you're talking about.  Nor would you.  You think you're getting the straight scoop from China.
