You have a very low risk catching it outdoors yet if you watch the media that's not the case. SMH
    Read more. The sun does not prevent transmission at all.

    Nope. New episodes every day. All dealing with some facet of dealing with COVID-19. Which is why my wife has taken her first break in years from recording it daily.

    Even though it is in the southern hemisphere and yes technically is in winter right now, Brazil almost entirely exists between the equator and the tropic of capricorn. It has mild winters at best.

    According to AccuWeather It's 73į in Rio right now, for example.

    Wow, that's not nearly the jump I was expecting after the holiday weekend, and even with that number of hospitalizations our net hospitalizations decreased by 11. Also, we added *18,000* tests to the total, shrinking our rate even more.

    Overall, very encouraging numbers

    Didn't somebody on here (d-usa?) say that testing results are 12 days behind?

    Yes. There are at least two issues I don't understand.

    1. The lag in reporting on new cases; apparently despite increased testing, the lab processing takes a while to complete. So our "new cases" may have happened several days ago.

    2. The matter of the quick test. Is OSDH even including the quick test results or not? I have seen this discussed and I do not know the answer.

    I seen else where that there is a 2 week back log on results. I know someone personally that is on day 7 waiting to get results back.

    If they are not counting the quick test how many of them are being done in a day? There is still a ton of information that I feel is being held back.

    True but direct sunlight almost kills it instantly on surfaces. So unless your kissing or coughing on someone and keep at least a few feet from someone outside in direct sunlight your probably going to be ok. That being said some of these people were probably too close to one another but it's not the end of the world that these people were outside having a good time.

    That's coupled with the fact that someone that just got it yesterday, isn't going to go in for testing the day after. With a potential delay of up to 14 days for symptoms you know there's at least two weeks built in since transmission aka for the person above referencing the holiday weekend. We won't see the impacts for a couple weeks at best.

    If I remember right that post was talking about specific results from the OSDH lab. Looking at quite a few OERs the bulk of results by far are being reported by OSU, LabCorp and Regional Medical Lab. I wonder if they’re as slow.

    I'm betting this swim party was in direct sunlight. Didn't work so well for them. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/23/us/ar...rus/index.html

    Also, your logic confuses me. If you're outside and not kissing or coughing on someone or near other people, you're probably just fine regardless of the sun or temperature.

    Ok you got me on that one true. The pool party story has way too many holes. Was it outdoors? How do they know they all got sick from the party? As far as sunlight about 7 minutes and the virus is killed a quick internet search will find you that.

    Meanwhile https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/23/us/mi...rnd/index.html

    A quick internet search brings up a pretty equal amount of “sun kills coronavirus” and “sun might not kill coronavirus”. I’m not betting on it.

    My wife was tested on May 13th and still hasnít got results back. So the two week backlog you mention seems to be pretty accurate from what Iíve seen.

    I haven't seen any confirmation that the party outdoors, but it's a pretty safe bet it was. As for claiming it came from the pool party, I'm certain some simple contact tracing is what pointed to the swim party.

    As for the Great Clips story. I really hate when they report stories like that because many people not paying attention will think that there term exposed means contracted the virus. I haven't read anything confirming any of the customers contracted the virus while getting a hair cut.

    And for the record, while my family and I do not wear masks in general. We do while doing things like getting a haircut.

    Correct. But even with receiving the positive results on Monday, they were not included in the official count until Friday. We are now using a private lab, and we are averaging 5 days on results right now. I will have to see how long any positives there take to be included in our count.

    A few posts back the OU vs OSU rivalry being brought up was an indicator of normalcy returning. Well today I ran into my first post-reopening, stopped on the highway, traffic jam on I44 on the way home. Oddly I almost enjoyed it. Amlost.

    OHD reported 322 recoveries against 92 new positives. That puts our actives under 800.

  22. #2772

    Default Re: Covid-19 in OKC (coronavirus)

    Again, recoveries are a bogus number and our actives are way higher. People with active disease are no longer counted after 14 days. The health department pretends they are “recovered” and simply drops them from the roster of active cases without regard to their actual clinical status. You can have active disease and continue to spread, but if you’re not dead or in the hospital you are “recovered”.

    How hard is to NOT spread health misinformation? It’s dangerous. No, this is not true.

    There is lots of evidence that being outdoors is much safer because the viral load can’t accumulate as much as indoors. Still, if someone’s cigarette smoke can reach you then their droplets can too. The best medical advice I’ve seen is to maintain a minimum of 6 feet from people whenever possible. It doesn’t matter whether the sun is out or not.

    Could you please cite a reference that states this is their methodology?

    UV light kills virus and bacteria. The sun produces UV light. This has been known for years that UV light is used as a sanitizer. My barber used a santizer station since the 1970s to put his razor in to sanitize. They are still sold today.
