Two reasons. One is that experts say it is nearly impossible to get infected outdoors. It takes a lot of viral load to infect a human. You cannot get it by walking by an infected person or even...

That sounds like a logical possibility. But can I ask what I think is the obvious follow up question to T-cell "pseudo immunity"?? Why would we not want to get intentionally infected with the common...

True, but I have lived in many countries and each country is more concerned with their own affairs more than others. And many are more concerned with the affairs of their immediate neighbors than a...

So why has Europe only done 29 million tests for those half a billion people? Maybe if they did as much testing per capita as the US we would find out that Europe is the most infected place in the...

I think it looks ok and matches my experiences this month.

No mini-bar and no extra bathroom amenities, but you can call down for these items and they will be brought to you. I did exactly that at...

Not that I care much, but would I not also have an elevated night time heart rate if I had a wild weekend with alcohol?

I should say it is unlikely although possible. There is still so much that we don't know yet but I am sure there are studies going on around the world on this particular subject.

Thank you for the wonderful report. I am very tempted to pop over for a few days this summer. It's been years since I've stayed at Danieli and I think with the lack of overseas tourists it must be...

As we are talking about protecting others, the part about handling them properly doesn't mean anything. If you read up on the subject, the point is that direct expectorations will be blocked by any...

I've done this many times without checked bags and it is easy. I do not know of any interlining agreement between KQ and BA so you'd probably have to collect your bags. The question is will you have...

I meant the actual pandemic and viral transmission experts. Like people who dealt with SARS back in 2003. Not the politicians and politically driven "experts".

It lasts as long as there is dead virus floating around inside you. I think that would depend on the person. I am not aware of any estimates, but I would guess that February would be far too long ago.

For me this is the best proof that lockdowns are not the solution, but mask wearing is. Experts have said all along that if 80% of us wear masks, the virus will rapidly die out. So it doesn't matter...

Not only that, but there are also false positives. Especially after you have overcome the virus as the test cannot differentiate between live virus and dead virus. I see little point in testing at...

Yes much of Europe has now reduced their rates after the rates exploded and many people died. And the same thing could very well happen again if the public is not vigilant.

As do some US states. What's the point? Why not wait a few weeks or so? You may see the balance tip in the other direction. If Europeans do not adopt mask usage (when less than 2m from others) then...
