Fartes of Portingale
This got me curious, our household is currently three out of five with symptoms and a positive RAT so I was interested to know if I was asymptomatic or just good at Russian roulette. Did a test tonight which returned a negative result so I guess will go again at the end of the week per current guidelines.Interesting article on infected people isolating with with someone without covid, without transmission to that person:
An effective pandemic response requires clear rules and thresholds that tell us how to judge COVID-19 risk. But that does not mean the virus always follows the script.www.abc.net.au
The TLDR seems to be that it is definitely a thing, but we're not exactly sure why. Possibly low viral load in mild cases means less transmission, or possible natural immunity - holding all the aces genetically as it were.
There's also a reference in the article to the Covid Human Genetic Effort (www.covidhge.com), who are interested in the DNA of these apparently naturally immune people to help them unravel the genetics of infection. The goal being to be able to better predict a person's propensity to develop severe disease if infected, and to develop virus-blocking treatments.
