Interesting. I took the first test 24 hours after my worst day of sumptoms. Then I took the second test 48 hours after my worst day. I wonder how long I was asymptomatic before then? I feel like I’m between day 14 and 21 considering I have no symptoms.While that’s true, rapid antibody tests aren’t all that reliable. I was curious about the timing of your tests, assuming they were 100% perfect at detection, it sounds like you took them a little too early given the timing of your positive nasal swab.
My friend says you need to be careful. The pattern in her study is for a couple days of symptoms then 5 to 6 days of feeling good then 8 days in people starting getting worse again. So hopefully you stay a mild case and wont see that day 8 crash.Interesting. I took the first test 24 hours after my worst day of sumptoms. Then I took the second test 48 hours after my worst day.

I'm seeing a positive test rate of 9%.NC covid cases down for third consecutive day to 1,186, positive test rate down to 6%, ICU and hospital bed capacity both above 25%, and hospitalization rate flat for past seven days. All good signs in my book... hope those trends continue.
I tend to believe they have been lying about cases for a while. That or deaths. I didn’t look yesterday, but they have been averaging way more deaths than AL despite AL’s big case rise.New York will see more cases and, in turn, hospitalizations as they've finally begun to open back up. It's inevitable since lock downs simply delay spread, not stop it.
Hospitalizations spiked back to 908 today, though it is still slightly lower than Tuesday last week. 28% spare hospital bed/25% spare ICU capacity is significantly better than last week, IIRC.Pretty significant drop in hospitalizations in North Carolina today, down to 843 from 890 yesterday and a peak of 915 last Tuesday. However, there is a cyclical nature to hospitalizations on a weekly basis, so I wouldn’t celebrate too much yet. Still, today’s 843 is lower than last Monday’s 870, so there could be something to it and perhaps hospitalizations have plateaued or peaked. We’ll see...hope for the best, expect the worst...
Excess hospital beds have now increased to 29% and ICU excess capacity has increased to 24%, which is the highest I can remember in a bit (which is good!).
Tomorrow will be telling, though. Tuesdays tend to be the worst days for hospitalizations.
They haven't updated the % positive on the NCDHHS website... you'll notice the last date on the chart is 6/29.I'm seeing a positive test rate of 9%.
