For philosophical reflections on the COVID-19 pandemic. How can philosophy help us to understand it, to combat it and to survive it?

I'm not sick, and I've tested antibody positive, so: go fuck yourself.

I'm no surgeon and I keep my distance from everyone, so: again, go fuck yourself.

I see so you are just a c u n t that wants to spread around your viruses to other people.

BTW you are sick. You are definitely a sick little sh it for brains.

Hi, Henry. masks aren't supposed to, nor expected to protect you from getting the virus. They are supposed to reduce the chances of you spreading the virus to others, should you have it (and perhaps not know it). Covid 19 can be found in respiratory droplets that linger in the air, suggesting that it could be transmitted to others by way of breathing in those droplets. The link below makes it clear why the CDC strongly recommends wearing a mask. It's not because they expect a mask to protect you. Rather you are protected by others who voluntarily wear masks just as you voluntarily wearing a mask may protect others around you from getting Covid 19 from you.

Do you mean you have it, or you've had it and recovered?

Is this thread about AIDS? The Americans love spreading this virus stuff around don't they!?

The southern states were all for their freedoms, then they real eyesed there ain't much freedom when you are all strapped to a ventilator, so now they are shutting stuff down again!! Muppets - the horse has already bolted.

That's the crazy thing about viruses, they go VIRAL!!

THEY AINT THAT BRIGHT IN THE TRUMP STATES.

The antibody test isn't very sophisticated as yet.

''What do your results mean?
If you test positive
A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold.
Having antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 may provide protection from getting infected with the virus again. If it does, we do not know how much protection the antibodies may provide or how long this protection may last.''

veg,

Do you mean you have it, or you've had it and recovered?

I tested positive for antibodies, meaning: I was exposed and infected and currently am not generatin' virus (meanin' I could kiss my old pal, Sculptor full on the mouth and, while he might get cooties, he won't get beer virus).

Gary,

I see your...

Sculptor,

*Kiss me, fat boy!

Everyone,

Even if I weren't antibody positive, I still wouldn't mask up. The response to beer virus (lockdowns, maskin', etc.) is not about mitigation or flattenin' the curve or preventin' hospitals from bein' overburdened.

As I say: we've been hoodwinked.
