The USA has uncounted cases as well.
My brother died last week. He lived in San Francisco and was in his 60s. He was in poor overall health from a life of excesses. The prior week he apparently had developed a cough and fever. He spent his last weekend holed up alone in his bedroom. The coroner determined his official cause of death was ethanolism and decided not to test his remains for Covid-19. I'm not sure if the people he shared the apartment with have gotten tested.

Yes, I think there are uncounted cases.

Sorry to hear that. My condolences. Yes, there are going to be a ton of uncounted cases.

My wife got sick last Wednesday and I've been sick all week. My symptom was a dry cough that, on Monday and Tuesday at least, I had put down to allergies from working in the yard all weekend. But when she got sick too, I was deathly afraid that I had contracted C19 and given it to her.

Fortunately her doctor was a little more level headed than I, and she landed on a UTI as the possible cause instead. Which, it appears, will almost certainly turn out to be the case based on other symptoms she developed as her antibiotics started to work.

As for my cough, I haven't talked to the doctor about it, but my guess is some kind of respiratory infection. But not C19, since I've had absolutely no other symptoms and it is suppressed pretty readily with a Benadryl.

But in those hours when you don't know... pretty scary stuff.

Yes - especially when you realize that you can't self-isolate from the other person in the household because of the design of the house. If I were to reconnect the toilet in the tiny half-bath downstairs, we could do that - but she'd be unable to shower, and I would have no access to the kitchen. Her cat, who stays upstairs, would be separated from her. Master bedroom suites didn't exist until maybe the Fifties.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. The human cost of all of this is sobering beyond belief. Thinking of you and your family in these times.

Case counts in the absence of strong ubiquitous testing is questionable at best, but it's all we have right now. Still some weeks away from being able to see what we're really up against. That goes for everyone in every country, albeit to differing, sometimes significantly differing, extent.

Something I've been pondering with our house layout as well. We do have a master suite, so that would be the likely solution. We also have the camper parked next to the garage, which could work, but no sewer connection there, just power and heat. I've considered offering the camper as a decon area, as I've seen done by other people, but no need at this time for it (our son has trained as an EMT, so this might come up).

Obviously, Teflon Don does not have a clue. He is solely responsible for the meteoric rise in the number of cases in the US. If he did not have his head so far up his ass he would listen to whats left of any intelligent people in his administration. But I forgot he is smarter than all of them.
If these numbers continue, (and they will) we might have to call him Covid-19 Don.
I am amazed by anyone who watches him everyday to not think that he is a moron.
