That does make sense, and I'd bet the average person would probably hone in on just the word "positive".

I Hope This Is Correct

Testing screw-ups are a disaster for more than just the person involved. Whilst outside the hospital setting false positives might just cause distress, inconvenience, and possible loss of income to the person who self-isolates unnecessarily, false negatives raise the possibility of a superspreader event while the contagious person unknowingly goes about their business.

Inside a hospital setting, OTOH, false positives or even just delayed results, cause a tremendous waste of manpower and PPE having to observe enhanced infection control for a patient who didn't need it.

Two of that friend's coworkers were potentially exposed to the virus and went to a drive-in test site to get tested. Apparently they filled out all the information required but before they could be tested the test site shut down because they ran out of tests. They were told to come back and be tested the next day. The next day before they could head back to the test site both of them got a phone call from the test center telling them they had tested positive. When they told the test site that they had never been tested they offered no explanation and only said for them to go ahead and come in to get tested.

Initially I figured that was just a fluke but I was talking to a friend of mine today and a she told me that the husband of one of her close friends went to get tested and had an unrelated emergency come up and had to leave before he could get swabbed but after he had filled out all of his information. The same thing happened to him. He received a call the next day saying he had tested positive despite no test ever actually being done. This was in Alabama.

All I can really figure is that these test sites are being very poorly run and getting results crossed between patients or something like that, which is pretty concerning since you might have someone who is positive being told they're negative. The only other explanation is something nefarious.

I don't really know what to make of it to be honest.

Oh Great...Now It's a Brain Disease!

"Severe brain damage possible even with mild coronavirus symptoms"
https://www.dw.com/en/coronavirus-br...age/a-54111054

From the article:
British neurologists have now published shocking details in the journal "Brain," which suggests SARS-CoV-2 can cause severe brain damage — even in patients with mild symptoms or those in recovery. Often this damage is detected very late or not at all.

Neurologists at the University College London (UCL) diagnosed acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis (ADEM) in nine British COVID-19 patients. This inflammatory disease causes a degenerative destruction of the central nervous system, affecting the myelin sheaths of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.

Of the 43 patients examined, 12 suffered from inflammation of the central nervous system, 10 from a transient encephalopathy (brain disease) with delirium or psychosis, eight from strokes, and a further eight from problems of the peripheral nerves, mostly with the diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is an immune reaction that attacks the nerves and causes paralysis and is fatal in 5% of cases. A 59-year-old woman died of the complication.
Apparently there were frequent reports of ADEM after the 1918 flu, too, so no worries, it's still just the flu (just a little bit worse than we thought).

Here's another report on the same study: https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/08/healt...mage+-+SD+List
I think this is the article accepted for publication (61 pages, enjoy!): https://watermark.silverchair.com/aw...PgTkDlb0l5CfPU
Ages of the 43 people BTW ranged from 16 to 85.

one story takes a couple minutes to get into reinfection

I dunno reactivation after antibodies drop off seems worse than reinfection from another source imo.

COVID has some really weird symptoms that make it easy to identify and not require a test.
There is a very wide range of symptoms, so maybe in some cases it is obvious, but others, not so much.

Some have a crazy runny nose, others do not.
Some lose taste/smell, others do not.
On and on, with lots of varied symptoms which may or may not present.

Hell, some don't have any symptoms.

Many of the symptoms mimic flu symptoms..... pneumonia symptoms....

It does require a test

When did you have Covid19?

That is your opinion, and I do not agree with you.

You do realize that COVID related issues in local populations has global implications? Are you expecting the public to be given information, that is very likely classified by the local government, at this point in time?

It makes sense, but that wasn't something I thought to consider. I'm the guy that you take one look at and instantly figure out I should been seen much earlier.

allye Our local area is experiencing a surge in hospitalizations. A husband and wife who are/were nurses at the local hospital caught it. Both required hospitalization. Both were recovering well as of yesterday, but the wife threw a clot (carotid artery to brain) and died today.

Madoc ...for a while after the relevant publicity we had a booster dose of patients presenting saying that everything tasted weird and/or they couldn't smell anything anymore, and they were pretty sure they had covid 19, because. It got to the point where we started using the Holy C Trinity - cinnamon, coffee and the cologne voted the most offensive by the female nursing staff...

Later in this thread I got curious how many times a wall of text would get unnecessarily re-quoted along with the request for the same link. It was mildly annoying (I have a fast scroll wheel on my mouse), and mildly entertaining (let me Google that for you...).

Also Googled the lady..... only thing you find is that she was mauled by dogs.... caught Covid19 from the rehab center. And before being released..tested positive again. That happens all the time.

Got any real evidence of people getting Covid 19.....more than once?
Out of the probably millions of folks who have had Real Covid 19... how many actual documented reinfections are occurring ?
