COVID-19 check-in

Went to the new Chester county antibody testing site on Friday. Pretty easy and smooth operation. All drive thru, and it’s just a pin prick test. That was at 9am, and by 9pm, I had my results back. 
 

hopefully they can ramp up these testing sites in the next few weeks.

I wish NJ had more tests as well as less positives like the entire U.S. did this past week, but at least the test positivity rate did drop.

I tested negative. Read the new Roche test is suppose to be better at eliminating false positives and false negatives.  I did it before Roche got FDA approval.

The New Jersey Air National Guard will be conducting a flyover to honor #COVID19 front line workers.

The 177th Fighter Wing and 108th Wing are partnering in the nationwide Air Force Salutes Flyover event, May 12 (weather date - May 13), to honor the men and women working on the front lines during the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic.

The flyover will feature three F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 177th Fighter Wing and a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 108th Wing. The flight begins at 11:20 a.m. and will cover key COVID-19 locations across New Jersey, to include testing sites, state veterans homes, hospitals and mortuary affairs.

Barring delays due to weather, air traffic or maintenance, residents can see the flyover at the following times and locations:

• Sea Girt – 11:30 a.m.
• PNC Arts Center – 11:35 a.m.
• Millstone – 11:40 a.m.
• NJ Convention Center – 11:45 a.m.
• Menlo Park – 11:46 – a.m.
• Kean University – 11:48 a.m.
• University Hospital – 11:48 a.m.
• Expo Center – 11:49 a.m.
• Bern County College/Paramus – 11:51 a.m.
• Vets Haven North – 12:01 p.m.
• New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs – 12:07 p.m.
• Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital – 12:13 p.m.
• U.S. Coast Guard Training Center – 12:27
• Atlantic City Convention Center – 12:32 p.m.

Listed times may vary slightly.

"Never underestimate the value of a morale boost when in combat. I want to thank the NJ Air Guard for its patriotic gesture and flyover in support of our first responder cohorts as we continue to battle COVID-19," said Brig. Gen. Jemal Beale, Commander of the New Jersey National Guard and Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. “Jersey Strong!"

I don't think we are going to any indoor restaurants any time soon.  Churches, Synagogues, Mosques have a dilemma. I think Germany in a meat processing plant and South Korea in bars have new cases from both places. I wish I could recall the source. That is something for us to follow as they have opened up.  Hopefully the virus is not as contagious in warmer weather.  This is the week to look at new cases in Georgia.

Good news - golfing is very low risk if you don't hang around the 19'th hole

By the way, gone are the days of going to work “it’s just a cold”. One of those weird thing that are pretty crazy to think about.

78615 deaths yesterday - 2nd week in a row under the prediction

Next weeks prediction = 91,874

Last week there were 190,755 new cases down almost 22,000 from week before and the lowest 7-day total since April 6.

88507 deaths yesterday - going to drop the forecasts since they are clearly overestimating

Last week there were 162500 new cases another sizeable drop vs last week

Testing is increasing, so there were likely more unconfirmed cases with bad outcomes in the past.

BTW a high school/college friend of mine whose friend was hospitalized with it and since released, he still had some symptoms thru 45 days.  It is amazing the differences in how it impacts/does not impact people.
