Testing et al

Post by ed »

I have been wanting some answers to these questions. None have been forthcoming.

1- What can be tested for?
--- Current sickness
--- Survival of sickness

2- Assuming one is exposed, how long is one infectious? Say day one is when you "get it". How long?

3-Suppose you have "survived". Are you contagious? For how long?

4- Suppose you "survived", can you get it again? How long is the immunity good for?

Thank you.

What about antibodies?

That would be good for indicating sub-clinical cases that result in immunity.

Just a hunch, but maybe already a majority in populated areas?

Hence my question about immunity. Do try and keep up. The quicker students are getting bored and fidgety.

There are things that we know, and there are things that we don't know.
Then there are the things that we don't even know that we don't know.
Those are the things that are the hardest.

If we know shit then solutions are simply shots in the dark. If you don't know about the immunity that is conferred by exposure in terms of duration then the concept of Herd immunity is simply a buzz word.

Et Al. vs. Etc.—What’s the Difference?

What’s the difference between et al. and etc.? Whereas etc. refers to a list of things, et al. refers to a list of people.

Yes. Why should this be different from high school?

Point is that no one knows, they just make shit up. Ergo planning is sorta bullshit.
