I just found out a good friend's hubby has it. :(2
He, an American, traveled to a place overseas with many cases.
Apparently this travel is the only reason his state authorized him for the, currently-hard-to-get, CV test.

TNote: This 2-year poll is set up to allow you to change your vote later.

Ultimately this poll will be 100% yes.

... not if enough of us do the right thing ......... avoid crowds, wash hands, & don't touch faces.

ETA: Oh ... I almost forgot ... not if enough of us fill our garages with a zillion rolls of toilet paper. :lol-2:

Not yet, but I know people who are having to self isolate due to recent travel to affected areas. One of those is almost on day 14 & so far so good, no symptoms.

According to one of the leading virologists in Germany, Alexander Kekulé, this won't be sufficient, sadly. We are too late into the dynamics.

However we need to do the right thing NOW in order to minimize victims. Avoiding crowds is not sufficient. Social distancing is key.

No visits, not even with family. Stay at home except for groceries or walking outside without people around.

I know it's really really really hard, especially for city dwellers with tiny apartments. But it's the only way.

I only know that a student in my school district is a "presumptive positive" but I don't know which school. School has been cancelled for at least the next two weeks for most schools in the state (maybe even all by this morning). Good move.

Your question is if we *know* anyone with COvid-19 and my answer remains that ultimately we will all eventually know someone with the virus. Even if we do everything right. My prediction. And many of us will get it no matter how careful. Just my prediction.

And lol that meme with the toilet paper on the table and the mom saying shut up and eat your tp. Too funny and sad. Still don’t really get the whole TP madness. You can’t eat it after all. Or you can eat it but you’re not gonna get helpful nutrients from it. :/

Yes. CV is short for Coronavirus.

Not at this point in time...half of my relatives are in Asia (China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea) the rest here in the US (both coasts), and I have not heard of anyone in my HUGE extended family or friend group that have been diagnosed or tested positive.

Yes, my husband's boss just tested positive, and they spent all day Tuesday in a truck together, so we're really not happy for this news. My husband is a New York City employee, and they won't be testing him unless/until he starts showing symptoms. We are now on a 2 week quarantine in our small apartment. We're fairly young and, luckily, healthy, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned.

@lkolarik I hope your husband didn’t catch it and that his boss recovers.

A distant cousin by marriage died from it back in January. I never met him or his wife, but the family says that he never seemed to be in very good health.

Ah yes.
I agree it's possible that eventually everyone will know some with it.
Thanks for the correction. :oops:

Right now there are none diagnosed in my county or anywhere in the state west of my county. But there are cases to the east of our county, 7 in a county with a very large metropolitan area.

Not yet. There are none as of yet that we are aware of diagnosed in our county either. However, it creeps ever closer to us.

No. Very close to Chicago but only one case in the county at a nursing home.

I wouldn’t know because the person in question traveled to China in Dec. Came back with a terrible cough they couldn’t shake. Asked for a test and was told there weren’t enough. I’m angry as I believe our president downplayed this in the beginning because he was more concerned about protecting his personal interests in his hotels / travel industry than protecting citizens.

My 48 year old Niece just tested positive. She is an ER Nurse in Austin Texas. She is under 14 day self-quarantine. So far she is feeling Ok. It has been 3 days since test results.
Vera, best wishes for your niece. I hope she recovers quickly if she becomes symptomatic. Bless all of our heath care workers and emergency responders! Heroes!
