#1 She is well. Let's hope she remains symptom free. I don't understand the criteria for donating blood with COVID antibodies. Hopefully she can and help save some lives in the process.

Hope she recovers soon.

Be pretty awesome if Biden chooses her for Veep and then Mike "Pounce" has to shake her hand at debates.

Wonder which one would terrify Pence more, the fact that she had COVID-19 or that she's a woman.

Hope she recovers soon.

It looks like you guys need to look up what "asymptomatic" means.

It looks like Deplorables need to look up what "incubation" means.

@ Gracie & LCL

Asymptomatic means not displaying common symptoms. It does not mean that the person is uninfected.

From an article aptly entitled We Still Don't Fully Understand The Label 'Asymptomatic':
"Even if someone is infected by the novel coronavirus and remains asymptomatic 'free of coughing, fever, fatigue and other common signs of infection' that doesn't mean the coronavirus isn't taking a toll. The virus can still be causing mild' although likely reversible harm to their lungs."

In addition, there is also considerable question about what COVID-19 will continue doing to those even after the acute infection subsides. For instance, studies have suggested that the Novel Coronavirus may target male reproductive organs in otherwise recovered males.

In any event, and as with many issues, there is considerable ignorance about facts and terms, particularly amongst those who are most strident in attacking the scientific consensus.

Makes sense that those who don't understand the meaning of scientific terms are also those who, by evidence of their speaking or typing, don't understand science.
