    Interesting reporting on Fox with Dr. Oz and another doctor discussing rumors that Corona may have been in the US much earlier than thought. They noted a high number of doctors reporting a "much nastier than normal flu" this year. They think the earliest Corona sufferers were misdiagnosed with flu. Interesting.

    Also, at this point, I'm pretty sure I had it already. I had very similar symptoms in January to what they were saying and my doctor told me it was either the flu or whatever nasty bugs the kids were passing around. I got it from the kids who were both sick with it and our of school for 6 days.

    I really think I might have had it for 2 or 3 wks in early January. Never had a "bug" go straight into my lungs and present like pneumonia so quickly. I almost went to the urgent care late at night and common sense prevailed because I was in no condition. Fortunately mega dosing liposomal C and nebulizing colloidal silver and buffered glutathione took care of it.

    Was afraid that people would think I'm crazy to suggest it could have been coronavirus. I actually hope that it was now and I may be immunized, but I'm not going to bank on that.

    I wouldn't be surprised because doctors didn't even know to look for corona virus.

    Tony:
    • There is a vaccine for the flu.
    • There are treatments that help control the flu.
    • There is inherent immunity in the community against the flu.
    • Most healthy people will not die from the flu if they are treated appropriately.

    Any comments, @Joey_V ... on your day off, if you’re getting one anytime soon. 😞

    Vaccine for the flu doesn't cover every strain. Corona is a flue strain.

    There are also treatments for Corona.

    If there was such an immunity to the flue, 20k people a year wouldn't die from it. We are shuting down states for under 300 deaths so far.

    Most healthy people won't die from corona either if they are treat appropriately and have healthy immune systems.

    Got anything else ?

    Interesting. Takes some time to tool up, but a lot of manufacturers are offering up their production capabilities if needed!

    I also got pretty sick in January/February or so. Wonder if I've already had Corona and have nothing to worry about.

    You can get it more than once, apparently.

    Now that you guys mention it, I was diagnosed with the flu several weeks ago and now I'm wondering, too. I haven't had the flu in years, and rarely get sick (knock wood), and my doc makes me take the flu shot each year. Could it have been a mild case? Who knows. Still being careful anyway.
    I disabled signatures.

    I wonder if there is a way to test to see if someone had Corona in the past. That would interesting.

    That more than once thing hasn't been proven and stems from reports of infections due to mutations in Asia. They've had enough infected over a long enough time that they've seen at least 2 strains, possibly 3. I haven't bothered to follow up on that on a week now but there's no evidence yet that reinfection happens.

    Hmm....who's the better killer. Tad over 230 for Corona nationally.
    23,000. For the flu. That's a factor of 100 times more.....and its year after year with hardly anyone blinking an eye at it.

    Let's say the CV hits 5000 deaths, which I highly doubt, it still pails in comparison.

    Could some of those flu deaths be corona ? Sure....but we'll never know that for sure. Could some corona deaths just be the flu ? Possibly also, if they never got tested for it.

    That sort of serology testing for antibodies will be out soon. Doubt you or I would be able to get tested though, since it would require a doctor's order.

    They can test residual antibodies that your system creates from what I understand. I think that this will be needed to understand how long it has really been here and is the current wave a mutation?
