There is a patient in China who had a presumed 19-day incubation period and remained asymptomatic. Even chest CT images showed nothing abnormal. Finally she tested positive with her SECOND RT-PCR test (even the first of this was negative) from a nasopharyngeal swab.

    Then you have cases of reinfection, too.

    Taiwan successfully synthesizes antiviral drug remdesivir

    https://focustaiwan.tw/sci-tech/202002210006

    Two Taiwanese research teams have synthesized remdesivir, an experimental medication that has shown promise in fighting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that has left more than 2,200 people dead

    In January, as an investigational antiviral therapy, remdesivir was administered to the first COVID-19 patient in Snohomish County, Washington, for "compassionate use" after he progressed to pneumonia.

    While no broad conclusions were made based on the single treatment, the patient's condition improved dramatically the next day, according to a research paper published on the New England Journal of Medicine on Jan. 31.

    There’s a clinical trial starting for Remdesivir for some US citizens who are nCoV+: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04280705

    Edit: Do you think Gilead will allow them to synthesize it for mass production?

    As South Korea confirms another 144 cases during the day on Tuesday to bring the country-wide total to 977, the small East Asian nation has become home to the largest outbreak outside China.
    The country’s death toll also climbed to 11. The second-highest death toll outside the mainland after only Iran.
    On Tuesday, President Moon Jae-in traveled to Daegu, the city where more than half of the country’s cases have been detected, and pledged to avoid the draconian restrictions Chinese authorities implemented in Wuhan, and across Hubei. Though he also advised residents to stay indoors.
    His comments were accompanied by a warning from the South Korean government advising foreigners to put off travel to the country.
    However, Moon’s bold promises were somewhat blunted by the fact that the government has implemented a containment policy on Daegu, North Gyeongsang Province, according to a party official cited by Yonhap.
    Other reports claimed South Korea is in the process of drafting a supplemental budget, while Moon has declared Daegu a “special disaster zone.”
    As Daegu sinks into isolation, Korean Air Lines and Asiana Airlines announced they would suspend domestic flights to the city until next month.
    A Singaporean government minister warned that the city-state could impose sweeping travel restrictions targeting South Korea if the outbreak gets worse.
    Korean Air also said it’s working with government health authorities to prevent the spread of the virus after a crew member fell sick.
    But in Seoul took on a more morbid tone Tuesday following reports in the local press that a civil servant from the Ministry of Justice’s Emergency Safety Planning Office jumped off a bridge in Seoul at around 5 am local time Tuesday.
    The official was one of several individuals charged with overseeing the government’s response to the virus.

    Welcome back! I would imagine that this virus thing could cause a lot of people in the medical field to change professions.

    I just made a fresh batch of colonial silver. I keep a spay bottle of it in my purse and when out in public I spray it around my nose,eyes and, mouth before entering a store and after. So far I haven't had any kind of flu or cold for many years. I also have a rife frequency generator that I play the frequencies that kill virus I think it helps I really wish hospitals would start using these frequencies in their entrance and waiting areas. I have played these frequencies over the phone for people and they all have said that they feel better after listening to them.

    You stay well we need people like you out there fighting the good fight.

    And here we go. Unknown public transmission in the US. It’s loose.

    A case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in a Northern California resident who had no travel history to an affected area and no known contact with a person previously diagnosed with COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today (Feb. 26). The patient lives in Solano County, northeast of San Francisco, and is being treated in Sacramento, according to the California Department of Public Health.

    "At this time, the patient’s exposure is unknown. It's possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States," the CDC said in a statement. "Community spread means spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown. It's also possible, however, that the patient may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected."

    This case was detected through the public health system by an observant clinician.

    FYI this drug was mentioned during Trump's corona virus press conference today.

    Thats so interesting because there are some reports saying that corona is potentially asymptomatic and a person can go many days, even weeks before realizing they're sick. Nobody goes to the doctor until its too late.

    According to the internal memo from UC Davis Medical Center, the patient was transferred from another hospital last Wednesday and was already intubated and on a ventilator. The patient was tested for coronavirus on Sunday and the test came back positive on Wednesday.

    The memo also states that when the patient arrived in Sacramento, doctors asked public health officials if this case could be coronavirus and requested coronavirus testing, but the test was not given immediately because the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for the novel coronavirus.

    This appears to be the first case of coronavirus in the U.S. of an unknown origin. Other cases are either travel-related or spread person-to-person.
    ...
    https://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2020...us-sacramento/
    So last Wednesday this person was suffering from a severe case. How long before it got severe? How long was the incubation period? This person could have caught it in public over two weeks ago. It could be all over the place by now with mild cases that will never be discovered.

    And you have to shake your head at the systemic incompetence. "Nah, no need to test this case."

    Yep. When someone gets so sick they go to the hospital, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Most cases are not that bad.

    And based on the stories, they weren’t even testing for Covid-19 unless someone had just come back from China.

    More community transmission in the US.

    SANTA CLARA COUNTY-The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department confirms the third case of COVID-19. This is the third case to be identified in our County, but is different from the other two cases since this person does not have a travel history nor any known contact with a traveler or infected person. 

    The individual is an older adult woman with chronic health conditions who was hospitalized for a respiratory illness. Her infectious disease physician contacted the Public Health Department to discuss the case and request testing for the novel coronavirus. The County of Santa Clara Public Health Laboratory received the specimens yesterday and performed the testing. Since receiving the results last night, the department has been working to identify contacts and understand the extent of exposures.

    (CNN)About 124 health care workers -- including at least 36 nurses -- are under self-quarantine after possible exposure to the coronavirus patient admitted to UC Davis Medical Center last week, a nurse union said.

    "Despite University of California medical facilities being generally better prepared and equipped to treat challenging medical cases, the recent UC Davis Medical Center COVID-19 case highlights the vulnerability of the nation's hospitals to this virus and the insufficiency of current Centers for Disease Control guidelines," the National Nurses United said in a news release Friday.
    ...
    The patient was transferred to UC Davis on February 19 from a Northern California hospital. Officials from both hospitals said the patient wasn't initially tested for the virus because she didn't meet the existing CDC criteria.
