Covid19 was spreading community-wide UNDETECTED in the US (NY) possibly for a month!

They're saying starting end of January, beginning of February. I wouldn't be surprised if it was even earlier.

Dr. Deborah Brix has already said this two months ago. She said it in the daily briefing some time ago.

I guess I missed it since it wasn't in any of the headlines.

I don't usually watch the briefings but this was one day I just did. I think this was at least a month ago,probably two. She was talking about New York - is that what the video is saying?

How is this new? They've been saying this all along - January. If we would have shut down 3 weeks earlier there are plenty of models showing how many lives would have been saved (almost all)

Yeah I'd seen this for a while. Separately, I remember when everyone was originally talking about the guy in Westchester having it as though he had caught it in a bubble from a mysterious location, but he was being considered like patient zero in NY. Like hello, that guy took a train daily, worked in the city, probably passed thousands of people each week, you have no idea where he caught it and yet you're somehow all convinced he's the "first" and didn't catch it from someone else... yeah okay....

He was the first to be hospitalized and tested.

Gee ive been saying that for months now.
I def had it and so did my entire family by mid/end February. Every single symptom other than foot sores (I wonder if that was real symptoms), pneumonia requiring hospitalization and continuous fevers.

Someone I know was sick in January. She kept going back to the doctor because she could not kick whatever was ailing her.
Now she has antibodies and in hindsight realizes it was Covid-19 back in January.

Someone in my office was sick like that for a month, missed 3 weeks work from end of December to January. Coughed so hard she cracked a rib. Dr said it was a bad virus, not the flu.

My husband's friend actually went to Wuhan, China in January and came back with an illness that felt like flu but did not test positive for flu....

Believe it or not.

I had read this and suspected my never-ending cough back in February-early March may have been covid but I tested negative for antibodies.

So either I had it and antibodies already faded or there were other wintery viruses going around in NYC this winter.

One of my kids tested positive for flu in January but it was a flu that I’ve never ever seen before.
I’m still 99% sure it was covid19.

That is what scares me now that we are so lax now saying we don’t see new cases.
It took so long for it to build the first time. It isn’t a fast virus.

While I am concerned about the laxness, I do think that we will detect new cases much sooner if they crop up because anyone can test for it. Back in March when I had a lousy cough the doctor refused to test me because I didn't have a fever and contact with any known cases.
