Rep. Louie Gohmert has recovered from the coronavirus and plans to donate plasma in the coming days, he told the Washington Examiner.
Sweden had reported an accumulative 5,846 deaths attributed to Covid-19. That is 577 deaths per million. The proportion of death in the United States is slightly higher at 593 deaths per million.
I have a problem with the conflation of the two words: hypothesis and theory in an article that purports to be authoritative. And I have a problem with something being referred to as "only a theory" in any context. A hypothesis is merely an assumption or guess. However, a theory requires evidence in its support. There is a significant difference between a hypothesis and a theory.I've been looking for info on this for months. not so much about mask wearing part but Low viral load exposure.
I do question the part about asymptomatic infection. if one has enough viral load to test positive. that can not be Low viral load... you think ? I would think that would be medium/mild viral load. but I'm no doctor... yet.. but have done more reading the past 8 months.
Mask wearing might also be reducing the severity of the virus and ensuring that a greater proportion of new infections are asymptomaticwww.telegraph.co.uk
In the absence of evidence, a hypothesis should not be referred to as a theory. An opinion that something might be the case is not evidence. Therefore, to make the article better, each occurrence of the word "theory" in this article should be replaced with the word "hypothesis."Still, Dr Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease physician at the University of California, San Francisco, and one of the paper’s authors, has stressed that the commentary has its limitations and should not be construed as anything other than a theory.
“To test the variolation hypothesis, we will need more studies comparing the strength and durability of SARS-CoV-2–specific T-cell immunity between people with asymptomatic infection and those with symptomatic infection, as well as a demonstration of the natural slowing of SARS-CoV-2 spread in areas with a high proportion of asymptomatic infections,” she told the Sunday Telegraph.
