    Screen for what, exactly? Asymptomatic transmission = impossible to screen.

    Friday morning it was two cases of community spread, in different counties of CA. This morning it’s four, and we’re adding OR and WA.

    This thing has been following the models like it’s on purpose. It’s like trying to stop the wind. But that won’t stop us (worldwide) from killing our economies trying.

     

    * Interesting thing: My first response was anger. Anger at the politicians, anger at airport management, anger at the NY Health Dept. Then my rational brain kicked in. It’s scary how powerful our irrational brains are. Gotta watch for that in each of us. It’s like playing chess: A situation looks really juicy and tempting, but then you look over the entire board and it’s really doom on a cracker.

      Right??

      Screener at airport, “Hey! You look sick! You sneezed! Off to quarantine for you!”
      Traveler, “I have allergies.”
      Screener, “Do you have a doctors note to back that up?”
      “Uhhh . . . no.”
      “Off to quarantine for you!”
