I don’t think it is due to those 2 actors remember most soaps shut down same day
it was california where a lot of people were sick where the stay at home was the order

Oh I don’t think it was because of both of these actors…that is simply when people started to come down with the symptoms of this very contagious CoronaVirus 19… I was just curious if other people on the show got sick!

It is possible these “put it out there” that they are sick perhaps some others are but don’t want people to know one it is private matter its like here in NJ or anywhere
they might say x number in this town some list 53 yr old male 66 yr old female etc…we don’t know their names we don’t know what part of town

The problem with this illness it not everyone has symptoms one of the actors, writers, crew or anyone around could have been carrying the virus and not even know it. Some people never get sick or show any signs. That is why mass testing is so important.

That is 100% True…Testing, Testing, Testing is the most important and smart thing to do! It is important to get all the facts so the data is correct! I wonder if we will ever know how many people actually had CoronaVirus and how many people actually passed! It is the asystematic cases that should be the most frightening…which is why Continued Testing is so important!

It is extremely important before re-opening businesses again or masses of people could die. We need to know how many carriers are out there who don’t even feel sick.

We need a vaccination before we can get back to normal

Since some can show no symptoms yet carry the virus we will never know. To be tested you must show symptoms. So it’s going to be hard.

Here’s what a friend shared with me in regards to his take on the current COVID-19 situation. Self-Isolation has a short shelf-life. Almost everyone on the planet has had influenza, likewise, everyone will contract this virus over time. At some point humanity attains Herd Immunity. Some of us may already have had this virus and are immune to it. We need to test America for COVID-19 and those that are shown to be immune, need to get back into their normal rhythm of life.

  1. Mass testing to identify the infected and the immune
  2. Management of the virus with drugs
  3. Develop a vaccine
  4. Get back to normal life

This is what I envision the government doing to expedite an exit strategy from our current immobilization. The first phase would be mass testing to identify those who are infected with COVID-19. Then approving an array of drugs like hydroxychloraquine and azithromycin to manage the virus which would reduce the number of those needing ICU hospitalization and ventilation from pneumonia. Next-mass testing to determine who is immune. Those deemed healthy would be allowed to go back to work and be released from quarantine restrictions. Lastly, the approval of a vaccine to further immunize the rest of the population and end this national emergency.

Wow, that’s an eye opener, thanks!

That sounds like it would take a while. But we have to be safe…

Yes I agree with your post but the drugs for this need to be “tested” first via trials! My sister in law has Lupus and said it is becoming more difficult to get her medication after ‘someone’ who isn’t a Physician keeps promoting it for CoronaVirus 19! Excellent Post… Keep Well and Keep Safe!

I do agree when this all first started and we were getting a lot of daily briefings from president and Dr Fauci it was said testing of vaccine could take up to 18 months

Finally, someone with common sense. We will get through this.

This is why I think forcing someone to take their temperature is ridiculous. I had to go to the pharmacy, first and only time I left the house, I was careful as careful can be, gloves, mask, I looked like I was gonna hold the place up. Anyway, so before I can go in, you know what they did? Shoved a Thermometer in my EAR!

The last thing I want is for someone to start shoving things in my orifices.

I don’t know how “sterile” these people are! I was PISSED. Especially since having (or not having) a temp doesn’t mean squat.

It took around 5 years to develop a vaccine for polio and mumps. 18 months would be extremely fast but we can manage the damage of this virus with drugs until then.

They should also have all front-line health care workers on it for short periods, while on the job. This particular drug can be hard on the retina if taken for a year or more. It appears to keep the viral load down. Take a look at all the countries that take it while battling malaria. Their infectious numbers have stayed low. That includes Africa, some counties in Indonesia and Central America. Obviously not everyone takes the drug there but many do.

There are other drugs being tested that show promise. No reason why we can’t continue to wear face masks and sanitize while living life more out in the open and working as normal. I would not be opposed to taking a flight if everyone was required to wear an n95 face mask. Like having to keep your seatbelt on the whole flight.

I know this disease currently is dangerous but so is living. Do do at your own risk. Live wholly and build up your immune system. Herd immunity is a real thing that will eventually happen with COVID-19. We’ll get through this. Hopefully the lasting damage won’t be psychological.

I’m glad they are doing better.

Many of the Governor’s are saying it still - testing is paramount!
