Petri Dish USS Roosevelt 16% infection rate in young, healthy soldiers-nine in hospital, one dead with allegedly no underlying health conditions

April 22, 2020

 

My uncle who is a physician interestingly commented on one of my FB feed posts that if you’re young and healthy go back to work (everyone else keep doing what you are doing in staying at home). He cited the USS Roosevelt (petri dish) that there were 5,000 exposed and 800 positive (That makes it a 16% infection rate). He said 250 were sick (that means 550 were asymptomatic or unharmed of those infected).

In this case it was 70/30… 30% got sick…
There was one death (Chief Petty Office, Charles Thacker Jr age 41, with allegedly NO UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITIONS)….

In my opinion, this is the best case scenario ….ONLY for the young and healthy and one UNLUCKY 41 year old, healthy man.
WHAT about us as a big chunk of the population not young and many not healthy?
We are largely untested destined to be either asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic.
WHAT 30% of us are going to get sick at…
WHAT expense and to…
WHAT extent?
This is WHAT keeps me up at night.
Texas is one of the first trying to open up and second to last in the US for Covid testing.
For those thinking that the recent findings showing more people with the virus antibodies therefore making the death rate much lower is to be forewarned that the tests could be picking up the NON novel corona viruses aka regular flu antibodies…so there is another….WHAT we don’t know until reliable and mass testing is available, and then we don’t know how long and to what extent our antibodies provide protection from reinfection.

Judge Glen Whitley finger pointing-how NOT to protect the TEXICANS in a Pandemic

Here is an exchange on Messenger about what is considered an Essential Worker during a pandemic….and building a school is not one of them when health care workers and general Texans’ lives are at risk…documented citizens or not!

This lady lives near West Division St I’m told….says she thinks she caught it at the theater in mid March cuz she did not go anywhere else. 
dividion st sick lady
My worry is that she does not have anybody to care for her and will need to go out for groceries.
I do not trust we have the resources for trace back and since we have no measures to control those walking around infectious, we need to get our act together.
When will the Arlington Convention Center be ready to either care for hospital overflow or to mandate that the infectious spend their quarantine there?
