Unfortnately, my eyes were wrong. It is indeed 7 days.

So it is 7 afterall. My eyes must have gone funny a the past few days.It's a 7 day cycle, with peaks on Fridays. Most people will work through a low-grade infection and report sick at the end of the working week, with maybe another peak on Monday. Labs may back up their results but post them all on Friday to clear the deck for next week.Have a look at the daily infection graphs on this site. They all display a 5 dayish oscillation cycle.My hunch is that the prominent 5 day oscillation cycleWhat 5 day oscillation?
The deaths graph is odd, as that also peaks on Friday. Whilst recorded deaths peak on Mondays (because register offices are often closed at the weekend) recorded cause of death seems to peak at the end of the doctors' working week.
As foir viral load, it's pretty obvious that the more you have, the more likely you are to infect someone else, and the morf you inhale, the more likely it is that some will penetrate your first line of defence and set up shop before the immune system gets into gear. The lack of early symptoms is interesting. It seems as if the innate immune system is very insensitive to the virus, so you can build up an overwhelming viral load before the adaptive system adapts, by which time the innate inflammatory response suddenly turns on as well, producing the excessive inflammation that can become fatal.
I guess that covid-19 requires a far higher viral count to get infected. Otherwise, we would all be infected by now.What does the count matter?
How high or low would it need to be to get to the inhabitants of North Sentinel island?

Yeap!Ozone generator x 2 ( costs 12 yuan each on Taobao)Just checking; that's less than I would pay for a cup of coffee, isn't it?
It produced the Tardigrade under normal evolutionary speed.The modern environment has lots of ways to kill microbes, including heating, boiling, UV-C, ozone, fungicides, antibiotics, anti-virals etc. So, we are basically accelerating evolution in a very fast way aren't we?Most of the things on that list existed before humans.
True, but it's pretty clear that antimalarials and bactericides have selected for resistant variants of their targets, whilst it is arguable that an excessively clean childhood environment has weakened overall resilience, if only by ensuring the survival of the unfittest.
The abiding rule of biology is that no species can win.
The stats show UK as over the peak by a very long way. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Even with Leicester still locked down we have survived the worst. In some countries probably deaths in care homes and of the over 70's are recorded as naturally of old age as any slight infection would have been fatal anyway.You still do not understand how serious covid-19 infection is. A serious infection can happen to young healthy people and the rate of transmission is rapid without the use of face masks in dangerous situations. Therefore, with the lack of credible leadership in the US & UK, they still haven't managed a safe gradual re-opening. The US leadership is just hopeless!
We need to be positive about the future and push our economy forward for the common good of everyone particularly our children. Next winter a new flu virus will be discovered and there is obviously no cure for it available. So government should advise the NHS that we understand they don't have a vaccine but they should just do their best to contain it and not panic.
I wonder if she enjoys eating it as much as she seems to enjoy killing it.I think she loves to eat just about anything because she was brought up to eat anything. That was how societies used to be.
