People in close proximity to Trump, Pence will be given COVID-19 tests: White House

Source: Marketwatch

COVID-19 tests will be done on people who are expected to be near either President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence, beginning today, the White House said. "Starting today anyone who is expected to be in close proximity to either of them will be administered a COVID-19 test to evaluate for pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic carriers status to limit inadvertent transmission," spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.

6. Since Trump is the chosen one, I can't imagine God would let him get Covid 19...

That's why he's tested negative so far.

Not sure about Pence.

5. I think we should protect him

by socially isolating him. A nice cozy cell would be perfect.

7. It's April 3rd. This thing can incubate for 14 days and in some cases up to 30 days.

So everyone he's been in contact with him is a potential host, since approximately March 3rd to March 18th. But mostly anyone he's been in contact with within the past 5 days is more likely to have passed this contagion onto him.

I have to be honest though. tRump must be one lucky stupid SOB. He's been doing just about everything as stupidly possible to get infected with this disease, but has somehow managed to avoid it. That, to me, is a miracle. Maybe he is divine. We'll see.

12. Link for the 30 day incubation period please as it conflicts with

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/32150748

which says


RESULTS:
There were 181 confirmed cases with identifiable exposure and symptom onset windows to estimate the incubation period of COVID-19. The median incubation period was estimated to be 5.1 days (95% CI, 4.5 to 5.8 days), and 97.5% of those who develop symptoms will do so within 11.5 days (CI, 8.2 to 15.6 days) of infection. These estimates imply that, under conservative assumptions, 101 out of every 10 000 cases (99th percentile, 482) will develop symptoms after 14 days of active monitoring or quarantine.

LIMITATION:
Publicly reported cases may overrepresent severe cases, the incubation period for which may differ from that of mild cases.

CONCLUSION:
This work provides additional evidence for a median incubation period for COVID-19 of approximately 5 days, similar to SARS. Our results support current proposals for the length of quarantine or active monitoring of persons potentially exposed to SARS-CoV-2, although longer monitoring periods might be justified in extreme cases

16. Sorry, I should have used survive, not incubate.

Early reports were saying some infected outliers outside the bell curve were exposed upwards of 30 days. Agree with all you posted though.

19. Thanks for the correction. As for the 30 day survival I find that difficult to believe until its

been confirmed to actually be able to survive that long.
I know, they say they found some on the ships but we do not know if that was due to the climate controls of the ship allowing it to survive longer or if someone already infected entered and recontaimented the area so until its verified we might be better off on going by on what the WHO says which is that it should be inert after about 7 days under most conditions.

8. Just be sure to use one of those defective tests

That gives a false negative.

With any luck at all, maybe thatís the test Trump was given.

10. Why waste the tests on them? These are the worse people we don't want left afterwards...

there are far better people who deserve these tests more, far better. Not these POS, who by their gross actions, caused this whole thing to happen.

14. Well, isn't that special? We all are sitting here, not knowing who among us may have the virus

because testing has been slow. But the Snowflake-in-Chief wants everyone who may pass it on to him to be tested.

15. How about an IQ test as well?

I guess we have to protect Trump from the democratic hoax, the common flu, a virus that will be gone in two weeks when the weather gets warmer.
