Hoping that’s as bad as it gets and recovery goes smooth.

Yep. When they talk about the Swedish response they shouldn't be able to cherry pick the freedom without the socialism.

I am interested in how Taiwan and Japan do economically. They both took pretty simple measures involving basic PPE, testing and tracing. Taiwan appears to have had less of a lockdown than many places so there GDP has hardly taken a hit. Taiwan had sent their CDC agents to Wuhan mid January and their reports were openly distributed and should have helped inform our response. So anything less than an effective response was a choice and not because we didn't know what we were dealing with.

Seems the big difference between us and them is that we've never embraced the social contract and instead want to vilify others to the point of taking action detrimental to our well being.

3. Were you treated medically, or have you been able to ride it out without treatment?

Thanks, and best wishes
1. I am in management at a large retail store. Two of the guys that I supervise had it. We have been vigilant about masks and pretty good about distancing but I assume that I got it from one of them. The main reason that I'm not more sure is that I had what I thought were minor cold symptoms for days before anything more severe developed. They had both been out for awhile on quarantine before any of my symptoms showed up. I also talk to a lot of people everyday and the exposure could be unrelated to those two.

2. When the PA called with my results, she told me that the health department might be behind so she briefed me on what to do and what they might tell me. I got my test back on Saturday afternoon and the health department called mid-morning on Monday. Not terrible response time, especially when coupled with the advice given by the PA.

3. I was not treated medically. I never had a fever or any real trouble breathing. I have had a headache that won't go away as well as aches, sore throat, still can't taste or smell, lots of fatigue, and loss of balance. I'm 9 days out from real symptoms starting and still feeling very tired.

Thanks for taking the time and answering questions mndiscg. Your symptoms are pretty close to what I experienced as well. Though, I seem to have has a shorter duration.

Good luck to you and I hope your family and those you know stay safe.

Yes, that is very much a big difference. I was in Japan 12 years ago and that society is sooooo different.

I went to a baseball game in Osaka. At the end of the game, everyone packed our their trash and discarded in the concourse garbage cans. It was shocking. I'm used to people in that situation leaving an absolute mess and not giving a rip.

Moreover there was no litter to be seen anywhere on the streets. No graffiti or tagging anywhere. Even homeless people would pack up their belongings in the morning and clean up the area they occupied overnight.

Those are but a few examples of the social responsibility we don't widely embrace in the West.

I haven't followed the case counts in Japan, but, I would trust the majority of Japanese people to do the right thing for the greater good ie. Staying home when sick, following rules, etc. I'm sure there are Libertarian types there, but it's likely the exception, not as widely embraced like we see around these parts.

This is a great point. Given the awful disparity of the COVID numbers in this country, for the poor and black, I don't think access to medical care and quality, can be dismissed as a reason for number differences.

This is a nice presentation on the basics of the bodies response to COVID. Also there is a a nice synopsis of a mask study at the end. I don't know who this guy is, and I don't advocate for his opinions, just thought there was some nice info here.

I cannot figure out imbedding.

Hope you bounce back well, with no lingering effects!
