I experienced that, as did other family members that got sick. They tested negative after a very long waiting period for results. Long story short, my doctor said she was seeing 30% false negatives in cases here...and essentially said they were likely positive cases. One family member is getting an antibody test shortly, as that is now rolling out here.

I’m glad you are feeling better. This is known to come and go, allegedly the new Wuhan cluster was started by someone that was already recovered.

Hope you get better and cured soon.

Prayers for your complete recovery.
I always liked your 'tude and your icon and quotes.

What I heard today from a source that would get good inside info, is that this may be the second wave. So many are saying that they believed that they had this in the fall/winter.

According to this video...this is how covid re-activated in Wuhan. A man was diagnosed on March 17, released from hospital end of March. And now he has virus again as well as 6 others connected to him. This is why they are retesting the entire population of Wuhan - eleven million people.

Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
Went to the ER this morning since I was sick and missed an entire week of work last week.

Originally, I was hoping to go for an all-clear so that I could officially return to work this week, but got a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 and a two-week quarantine instead!

This wasn't that surprising to me, since I was quite ill, but didn't have coughing or breathing issues...just everything else for about a full week.

Luckily, for work (and being a Union member) I can still get paid while out...without needing sick time. Obviously, not the case for many that are taken out of work temporarily due to this virus.
 Quoting: AkashicRecord®


I had my yearly exam last month and the office procedures were like you describe. This was a major improvement in my book. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh, I'm going to be just fine as the worst was days ago. Now it's just about waiting out the quarantine period.

I wanted to briefly share my experiences with the non-believers, especially about the "empty ER rooms" stuff, and the fact that many don't know anyone infected (or dead) from COVID-19.


I had a young (age 30) co-worker recently die from this, and the father of a family friend also perished a few days ago, so it is not really a joke...

It's Connecticut, and they didn't feel wasting a test on me that late on the game would have been worth anything.

I've been exposed to a number a people who had this virus, so it was just par for the course...and a bit of a ticking time bomb.

The doctor that saw me told me that 1/3rd of tests are turning up false negatives! We had a few severely ill family members here over the weeks, some are first responders, and every test was coming up (rather impossibly) negative...but it was also taking about 10 days for results, so that's no bueno!

I don't put much faith in the results of some of these tests right now. You have to go with symptoms first, tests secondary...

Not in these cases. Too many people with too many symptoms for far too long. The tests (and lag time) fucked it all up as well..
 Quoting: AkashicRecord®


Not so fast... You didn't have breathing or coughing issues... The hallmark of rona, but no need to test for a positive diagnosis because other people have symptoms that may or may not match yours.

And it's spring, there's hay fever, there's colds, there's air pollution, people cleaning off mothballed work equipment...

Nope, can't be those things... It's the rona

Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
So they "diagnosed" you as positive without a test???? that's a good indicator in my book that they are cooking the numbers to appear worse than they are.

My wife's aunt and uncle had it.... Fully recovered now but we were over at their house the day before the uncle got really sick... He supposedly had a fever that day. For something so contagious it must be a miracle that None of us caught it, including our 3 children that were there with us.

Her aunt and uncle even have two adult children that are temporarily living with them and they never caught it either...

So far all the evidence closest to me makes it really hard to believe the official narrative on this virus

The ER was rather quiet, but they aren't letting people pile into waiting rooms at all. Everything is very methodical and coordinated. Many people wait in their cars and tons of work (like taking insurance information and demographics) is done via phone...even if waiting in a closed examination room, like I was.
