lsd, the unleashed dogs will flock together, infect each other and reduce their numbers some; all with the blessing, in fact encouragement their leader (who likewise refuses to wear a mask). (Scratches head.)

Agree with Zoot. It's not going to happen. Wishful thinking though and hats off to them for being so optimistic.

Just saw Trump's "we'll be the comeback kid" for reopening the country in the coming weeks. That quote will come back to haunt him when the "comeback" is really the resurgence of the virus in May due to reopening far too early. Won't matter. He'll call the reporters liars and deny ever having said it even though it's on video. The guy is pure teflon. And if you've watched the movie "Dark Waters", you'll know teflon is really nasty stuff.

Let's see it this posts:

I’ve seen that meme now in so many places and each time I see it I cringe. For anyone who got a half descent science grade in high school it should not need explaining why.

That is not to say that social distancing won’t be with us for foreseeable future but still.

Offical UCI calendar released....Tour Aug. 29-Sep 20. Giro in October, but overlapping the Classics and the first week of the Vuelta.

Gonna be some tired legs this fall....

How to win a Grand Tour in 2020: Get Covid19 now, recover, and be immune (maybe). When half the field gets booted over the course of the race for a fever of any cause, you will have your pass.

“(maybe)”

No, immunity is pretty much disproven already.

Not so sure, I follow the literature closely, and this is yet to be determined.

The way I see the calendar, WT teams will need 3 "teams" to successfully compete....a Tour team, A Giro team, and a Classics team. The Vuelta would then likely be raced on some hybrid of the Tour / Classics teams.

Did I mention there were gonna be some tired legs this fall?

Something came out from Los Alamos today that strongly hinted at it. At a minimum they shows changes in dominant strain over time which tends to rule out immunity.

Bottom line:
It's complicated
Not all tests measure the same thing. Results depend on what is measured by the test. And NO test is perfect. Welcome to the real world, and the chaotic Covid19 world.
IgM is good evidence of recent infection
Lack of IgG does NOT mean no long term immunity, depends on when the serologic test was done relative to the infection.
Nasal swaps have similar issues with acuity.
Circulating IgG weeks after infection implies long term immunity, but how long is a good question, and is at the heart of my post

PS: definitely mutating, that may explain why the NYC strain(s) which came from Europe seemed to be more toxic than the California strains. But that does not preclude immunity covering all strains.

That new dominant strain they say is more transmissible but not as deadly.

I am not sure that differences between California and New York are related to different strains. NYC being the densely populated place it is and also underlying base health differences are more likely factors.

Good read. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/covid-19-us-canada-death-rates-1.5553168
