    Identical situation with my wife. She probably got it in Long Beach, where there was a confirmed case in late January. Where is your brother?

    I think there has to be something genetic that makes some people react much more strongly. They'll figure it out once the dust settles and have a way that people can get screened to assess their future risk.

    Cave Creek. He works (in North Phoenix) with people who shared the same symptoms while he was as ill.

    Would venture to guess that the number of actual people with COVID is about 10x what's being reported. I live in a relatively small area with over 100 cases and there are way too many celebrities, athletes, etc. who've contracted it for me to believe that we're only at 85k +/-

    No hospital for him... He's is quarantined at home. It's just his wife at home - no kids or other family.
    He actually doesn't feel that bad now. The worst appears to be over. Spoke with him about an hour ago. He's an avid cyclist who typically rides 60-70 miles a day! He rode 45 today, so other than the loss his smell and taste senses, he is doing quite well. Said each afternoon he feels a bit run down... told him riding 45 miles with coronovirus might have something to do with that!!!

    Yes, thank you, it was a long two weeks, but it seems like forever ago now. I didn't get sick, but we don't know what that means.

    I've been saying 50-100x for the last couple of weeks. It takes so long for symptoms to develop, what we see now is a snapshot of the past.

    JFC, probably the most heartless thing I've ever heard. This is way out of control.
