Stifling Dissent Since 1965

I want to respond to post #23 in the other thread strictly because 'Probe displacement and Cleavage' was used in the same sentence.
Thoughts on this? Real or not?
I think there are valid concerns brought up in the article. A lot of our reaction as a nation is copycat in nature, political posturing is real.... so of course some things are valid, just how valid and whose stats are you going to believe and determining the correct assumptions when making projections is huge. I can link you to a doomsday tweet thread by reputable minds as well.
My personal views are that lack of kids being tested and not really having a clue how many asymptotic individuals exist either here or anywhere else in the world other than maybe S. Korea really skews things.
Also in today's world anybody in a leadership position basically isn't allowed to miss by erring on the side of a cavalier approach. Best take a snow day rather than what? Risk someone with an AWD suv go in the ditch for a bit on their way to school?
@Native a whole bunch of potential positives in the article. https://hotair.com/archives/jazz-shaw/2020/03/19/japanese-come-coronavirus-cure/
What do you think?
Yep in fairness the person writing the article just quotes other articles and intended to only present what was written elsewhere. So after a while it becomes a big game of telephone. I only put it here because it is something I had not heard elsewhere. I knew you would cut through the BS. thanksI think when thinks are presented in a way where they are too good to be true, they often are too good to be true. Chloroquine is showing some positive effects, 100% cure rate? no way. I also like that the link is from "hotair". But it is giving options of a nice off label use that likely won't do any harm. I have also seen it being pair with azithromycin, (z-pack drug), which is surprising to me. Drug studies need way bigger N to be interpreted.
A question on testing the healthy person. A lot is being said about more testing, drive thru lines so more people can be tested.
The other day at a news conference Dr Adi Pour, Douglas County Health Director talked about testing. She said a person could be tested and it would come back negative, but a couple days later they could be positive.
Right now they really try to nail stuff down about a person before they test. I wonder if all the drive thru testing will result in more people thinking they are healthy and safe, when in fact a couple days later they may not be safe.
Seems it's kind of a catch 22.
So you're saying most of those people waiting in line at the drive thru testing site are on their phone searching for WebMD while they wait.Paralysis by analysis. Everyone who sniffles is gonna want a test. And as @Husker Country Doc pointed out in the previous post, the amount of testing reagents and supplies are limited. Impossible to have a very specific test up and running across the country, let alone have it be for the masses. It is even sorta rare for everyone with influenza symptoms to get testing done. Hence why they are doing a triage style testing okay.
Going to get tested when you are healthy is similar to being healthy and starting to search WebMD to find out you have all sorts of cancer symptoms and are going to die.
