According to a New York Times article immunity to the Rona may last years:

Eight months after infection, most people who have recovered still have enough immune cells to fend off the virus and prevent illness, the new data show. A slow rate of decline in the short term suggests, happily, that these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time to come.

This study has not been peer reviewed or published in a scientific journal but any way you look at it this is good news.

I see your point, but I do disagree.  The restaurants I have been to have bent backwards to be compliant.  Patrons have to wear masks anytime they aren’t seated, which I will agree isn’t the greatest.  Is there any statistical proof that closing restaurants significantly stops the spread?  Maybe there is, I just haven’t seen it. Meanwhile, businesses are going bankrupt, and people are losing their homes.

I agree.

I haven’t visited many, but all the restaurants around here seem to be very strict on wearing a mask until you’re seated.

Gas stations seem to be the main culprit IMO.

The family/friend gatherings are the main culprit right now. 

Restaurants are a big issue because people aren’t wearing masks 90% of the time they are in one.

Saw on the news this morning a story about a California restaurant owner who spent $80,000 on open air outdoor seating.  She was shut down.  Next door was an almost identical open air outdoor eating area put up for the cast of a movie being made there.  It is allowed to stay open.

I saw that this morning as well. We know some are not going to comply with the rules, that is fine. But for those that do, it is hard to see the double-standards in place for certain industries or businesses. The larger the business or more money behind the business, the more likely they are to remain functional and profit. It does not compute with people that a small family-owned cafe can be shut down, but Walmart is thriving more than ever. Of course this is how life has worked well before the pandemic, but it is now more pronounced.

Exactly. Nothing has changed, and COVID continues to be an issue of convenience.

This is one of eleventy billion inconsistencies as it relates to COVID reaction.

Back at work for the first time in darn near a month.  My wife started showing symptoms about a week after I did, and tested positive as well.  Neither one of us really had a fever at any point in time, and thankfully, it never got into our lungs/chest.  Mainly seemed like a sinus infection...with one exception...the fatigue.

I have had zero energy through this whole thing.  Same with the wife.  She had been able to work from home, and did so last week.  Yesterday she went into the office for the first time, but said she "crashed" around noon, and ended up coming back home at 2.

Wife saw an article from the NKY health department that showed a study saying that the fatigue could last up to 10 weeks, regardless of how mild/severe your initial symptoms were.  Ugh.  Don't know if I'm looking forward to another month or two of feeling like this.

On the flip side, it's certainly better than being in a hospital bed right now.  I can easily see if you got it in the lungs/chest area, how this could turn to pneumonia in a snap.

Same here on the energy levels.  I fell asleep during the UK game Sunday and was about dead the rest of the day.  Worked Monday from 8-5, and was home, asleep on my couch by 6.  Then in bed by 10 and slept 9 hours.  I'm usually accustomed to working 11-12 hours a day and I can barely stay awake that long right now.

It stinks, doesn't it?

Last Thursday I slept for over 11 hours, which even for me when I'm sick, is a long time.  I was up for 3 hours.  Walked to the bathroom, then to the kitchen for some breakfast, and back to the bedroom where I watched some TV.  Within 3 hours...I had fallen asleep AGAIN!

Saturday I fell asleep sitting upright in the computer chair.  And Sunday, I dozed off for 3 hours after the Bengals went off.  There has not been a single day that I haven't had at least one nap during the middle of the day.

This one was hard to take and I really wish I could go there and spend some money.

This sounds very similar to my case.  Unfortunately, the wife had the overall body aches for over two weeks.  The running down of the batteries is still impacting her, like your wife's situation.  She will work a bit and lay down a bit (working from home). 

My son's girlfriend test positive after he did.  She said (and still says) she had no symptoms.  But we discussed this weekend she said - I had a bad head cold for a few days - but that was not COVID since I did not have fatigue issues.  So, it would seem the young may not suffer from the fatigue issues and thus consider themselves "asymptomatic" when they are not.  It seems my son had the mild version of what hit my wife.  GF seemed to have the mild version of what hit me.  It seems that there are two strains now.

I don't think different symptoms equal different strains. People's bodies just respond differently as the symptoms in your family shows.

I have a friend whose family all have it and they all show different levels of symptoms. Unfortunately, one family member passed away from it. Meanwhile a daughter in the same family had minor, cold like symptoms. I don't think that is different strains. It is different impact to each person. That is the insidious nature of this virus and is why we can't minimize the threat it poses.

Also I think it is a disservice to others for someone to say they had no symptoms. Good for you asking about more details.

I heard a Bengals coach on the radio last night. He had it and at first said he had no symptoms. Then he was asked more about it and he listed runny nose, temporary loss of smell, headache. Good job to the radio person for asking more and shame on that coach for minimizing. We are all still learning about this. We need people to be transparent and not act like this is nothing. The US is fast approaching 300,000 dead. No one should ignore that and act like this is nothing.
