    • Covid-19 Reinfection Documented in Nevada Adds to Questions on Virus Immunity

      Case of man reinfected with the coronavirus, reported in a Lancet medical journal, joins a number of Covid-19 second-cases world-wide

      A Nevada man became the first published case of Covid-19 reinfection in the U.S., adding to a growing number of examples world-wide signaling that patients who have recovered from the viral disease might still be at risk of getting it again.

      The reports of reinfection imply that it may be challenging to achieve broad population immunity to the new coronavirus without a vaccine, researchers said. “It definitely raises serious concerns that natural cases aren’t going to give us herd immunity,” said Otto Yang, a professor at the Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.

          How could Brazil be the next highest after the USA if they have 250K reported deaths and we have 218K, as you reported above?

          • The West is being left behind as it squanders Covid-19 lessons from Asia-Pacific

            London (CNN)While the Asia-Pacific region treads water until a coronavirus vaccine is found, the West's biggest economies are drowning as a second wave firmly establishes itself in Europe.

            Europe is now reporting more daily infections than the United States, Brazil, or India -- the countries that have been driving the global case count for months -- as public apathy grows towards coronavirus guidelines. Several countries are seeing infection rates spiral again after a summer lull that saw measures to contain the virus and travel restrictions relaxed.

                  That was a typo I corrected yesterday. It is 150K.

                      The N.Y. Times reports behind the paywall that China will tests the entire population of Quingdao (9 million). If there is even a 1% positivity rate, it would more than double China’s reported cases. It will be interesting to see.

                      • NY, NJ, and CT added three more states to their quarantine list: Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia. There are now 36 states plus Puerto Rico and Guam. Basically all the states except most of the Northeast and Far West.

                            • Iona (N.Roch.,NY) had a 'superspreader' outbreak which will close campus for 2wks. I assume that affects their new coach's (Pitino) practice plans but who knows?
