>Why get tested if no symptoms ?
# – # – # – # – #
Labcorp sent a notice that they were offering the test for $100.
“Everyone” was ridiculing me for thinking about get it done.
With all the “information” floating around about the WuFlu:
- The death count is either inflated (by hospitals to get Federal money) or undercounted (by ignoring deaths in nursing homes).
- No one seems to understand it. (For example, how can the Roosevelt aircraft carrier (Link) have only a fraction of the crew infected if it’s so contagious?)
- There seems to be some “interesting” (uneven) stratification in the impact. Seems to impact the old and sick. Seems to impact minorities disparately. Seems to be spread by people that don’t have symptoms.
- The politicians and bureaucrats have confused the issue with a delayed response and an over-reaction.
- The “celebrities” are elbowing into the spotlight to improve their visibility and spouting uninformed opinions.
- Some experts are opining outside their areas of expertise. Stepping into “policy” from “findings” or “recommendations”.
- No one seems to know who’s immune and why?
- Seem to be two groups of doctors that seem to have conflicting diametrically opposed opinions about what the issues are?
So, if there is some sort of “immunity”, perhaps it is signaled by the antibodies in the testing.
It might be nice to know if I have the antibodies which would indicate:
- I had a the mild version that people get with no symptoms;
- I will know I have immunity when and if the experts find that “immunity” is denoted by the antibodies;
- I will know by the absence of those antibodies would be a warning that I might still be at risk.
QED thinking about getting the test isn’t crazy.
