I half expect them to start burning people as witches again, or executing people that go outside without a mask on.

As I have lived my life, I have witnessed the collective IQ of Americans drop off a cliff. If you want a real eye opener, get on the Neighbors APP and look at the ads people write to sell their old appliances, or where they ask if anyone can help with some house maintenance problems.

People cannot write a couple sentences to communicate their message. Not just the grammar and spelling errors ,which are near 100%, but the fundamental lack of any understanding of anything.

They will say they are selling something, like a dryer. They don't include a photo, don't state if it works or not, or if it is gas or electric, or the year, make, or model.

It rained the other day. A woman posts wanting to know how to kill all these darn earthworms on her patio. People explain to her worms are beneficial and harm nothing. Doesn't matter, she wants them all dead. But also stipulates she doesn't want to use poison. I assume she hired an earthworm assassin to cull the stampeding onslaught of earthworms. I hear tell, they are dangerous when they stampede.

I think it's totally plausible that the virus was present in our respective populations far before the Chinese admitted their problem, certainly in December. Looking at the amount of air traffic in and out of the US and UK. Plus no one at that point really knew what was going on or how much it could be transmitted.
I'm pretty sure I picked it up at the beginning of February in the UK, before the lockdown began. Fever, chills, cough like I have never had before, horrid lumpy phlegm afterwards, lost my sense of taste and smell. I was knackered for about three weeks afterwards.
There is talk of us only being let back into my particular workplace if we have had the antibody test and been positive... Suppose then I'll know.

One person on a thread even accused me of falsely doctoring up my test results that I posted.
I guess I am supposed to be on a ventilator and near death according to some people here.

I guess Iím Superman. Lol.

As I mentioned above, there is no need (at least at this point in my opinion) to worry about an antibody test. You wont win a prize for having the antibodies and it will probably cost you more money just to try and prove it to someone who doesn't matter.

My lingering cough was minimal but it was about 12 weeks before I was able to take a deep breath without coughing.

I have friends and family in a couple large cities around the country, as well as others scattered around more rural areas. Those in the medical profession in the hard hit cities are rather vocal and harsh in their opinions and demand, those in the medical profession in the rural areas are seeing minimal problems and urging caution only for those with immune problems or problems like diabetes or blood pressure problems. Maybe city folk have poorer health conditions than the rest of us?

I don't now enough to comment. But it seems this would be another screening tool but not diagnostic.

Is there something specific in the WBC you are looking for that is released when it dies fighting a C19 virus?

No, just that when I googled early characteristics of the virus, several articles listed leucopenia.
I guess the white blood cells are simply consumed in the battle with the virus.

The one article I linked correlated the degree of leucopenia with the predicted severity of the illness for that patient.

Then I looked for a quick and easy test for leucopenia and the new MIT gadget popped up.

I guess it is simply a microscope of some sort that looks through the skin and shows the single file blood cells passing through the capillaries.

if you notice a distinct absence of white blood cells, you know to quarantine the passenger and do a specific test for the virus.

The only way we are going to get 10 million people tested and retested daily on an ongoing basis is to have a simple automated test like this has the potential to be. You could even automate entry doors to old folks homes etc. to require a "passing score" on a finger test.

Might need to further develop the test to automate the count.
