  1. How many have had it now and not even noticed it much?I would guess many millions.Sure,wash your hands/let the elderly/ill(combined it seems) have store hours,let the rest of us get back to work!

    • From the limited antibody tests that have been performed: not very many have gotten it yet, even in pretty hard-hit areas.

      It is imperative that we improve testing, both for the live virus and for antibodies. If we do that, we can get a lot of things in gear. If we can’t do that, then we’re just shooting dice.
