Doctor at Albuquerque's Heart Hospital tests positive for coronavirus.

I have an appointment there this coming Thursday.

The Department of Health says a doctor at Lovelaceís Heart Hospital has tested positive for COVID-19, now more than 100 patients will need to be tested. The state starting investigating last Sunday. In a DOH statement, it states the doctor in his 50s is currently in intensive care. Three employees have since tested positive.

The state says Lovelace has reached out to just over 100 patients who may have been at risk for exposure and provided guidance for quarantine and testing. The hospital has also expanded testing for Heart Institute staff. In a statement, Lovelace says it rapidly responded and that itís committed to adhering to all state and organizational guidance toward the protection of our patients, visitors, staff and community.

1. If those 100 patients came down with symptoms,

you would think they would contact the doctor by now.

2. Might be too soon? Then there's the ones with no symptoms who might be positive

3. Sweden's experience with covid-19

If Sweden stops at about 5,000 or 6,000 deaths, we will know that theyíve reached herd immunity, and we didnít need to do any kind of lockdown. My own feeling is that it will probably stop because of herd immunity. COVID is serious, itís at least a serious flu. But itís not going to destroy humanity as people thought.
