Hmm...not sure either then. This was from WSOC in Charlotte:

"North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is reporting 22,725 cases of COVID-19 across the state, up 1,107 from Friday.

The state reported 26,358 total tests were done in the past 24 hours, which is above the state’s benchmark to test between 5,000 and 7,000 people every day. "
Sounds like a data dump.

Unless the hospitals are in danger of being overrun there’s no sense in tightening the restrictions. Just my opinion.
Evidently Winston is because that’s where everyone in Wilkes is sent once it gets bad. My brother in law was in icu for 3 extra day because they had no normal beds available. He finally got a room that is like negative pressure or something. I’m guessing rural hospitals are not equipped for patients with COVID19 that are getting worse.

I have had 4 people die I know unrelated to COVID19 since March. It’s like elderly people are just falling over. Pneumonia, cancer, etc. I know people die all the time but is anyone else noticing more than normal deaths unrelated to COVID19?

Dad’s coronavirus symptoms right now are very very mild, very much like a little cold Or even better, seems to get worse at night, hoping it stays like that and doesn’t get bad around day 4-6 like some people have, he’s 42 years old btw
Has he been tested? I may have missed it up the thread ...

Hopefully it stays mild and he quickly recovers! Also, hoping you don’t catch it as well. Glad to hear he’s doing well with it so far!

Yeah right now he basically has just a runny nose and a temp of 99.7, very very mild symptoms, he has a excellent immune system so that’s probably helping, and I appreciate it !

Mine is similar age. Worse at night and mostly just coughing. Laid in bed several days but got better in a week. He tested pos after he recovered and tried to go back to work.

Pretty good Letter to the Editor in today's Gainesville (Hogtown) Sun ...

Coronavirus competition

How can we better bounce back from the lockdown and restart Florida’s economic engine? Let’s think baseball.

What if we here in Gainesville, the heart of the Gator Nation, challenge Tallahassee, the sacred ground of the Seminole tribe, to a game of bounce back baseball? Each week the team with the lower COVID-19 positive test rate or the higher testing rate per 1,000 would score a run. Each inning would last one month. The game would continue for at least nine innings or until one city’s vaccine immunity reaches 75% of their population.

At the end of each inning, teams would share their scoring strategies with their opponents in an effort to raise the level of competition. Other cities could likewise pair up in similar challenges. The teams with the most improved coronavirus scorecards would be nominated to the Florida Bounce Back Baseball Hall of Fame

My 4yr old desperately needs a haircut and he is very very ticklish so it's hard to cut his hair without him squirming everywhere. We typically use great clips but may reconsider in the short term. My wife is cutting my hair but he wont sit still for us.

My dad is basically asymptomatic at this point, temp is 98.9, lost his stuffy nose, lost his cough, he’s laughing on the phone with friends and family, he’s supposedly taken this tea they take in Honduras but I don’t know the name, unfortunately my mom is feeling unwell, and she has a slew of health issues

That's good, hopefully things keep up there.

Keep an eye on your mom and make sure your dad pays attention to his symptoms and doesn't get complacent. Lots of cases worsen in the 8 to.10 day range.

That’s great. Hopefully he doesn’t have another spike in symptoms. I felt good on day 6 then spiked day 7, and get great day 8. This is a very weird virus...but since it’s mild and he seems to be recovering, I think that’s a very very good sign. Just don’t get too worried if he feels worse one of these following days. Try to stay hydrated as much as possible (until urine is clear) and take vitamin D (1000iu) and C (at least 2g daily) will help the immune system. Stuff like airborne or emerge-C also have zinc if it’s available.

Mom and dad has it yet somehow I don’t, (which he’s still doing well) is there any chance I’m asymptomatic because I’m younger ? I’m around my dad very often, and over the past few months ever since the Epstein Barr, I’ve built up a really good immune system and constantly have made healthier choices such as Taking vitamin C, better food, probiotics

My sister works at Tyson and keeps testing neg but her husband and kids are pos. You could have false positives, already had it or have a strong immune system.
