ROME (Reuters) - The new coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal, a senior Italian doctor said on Sunday.

“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the brunt of Italy’s coronavirus contagion.

“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” he told RAI television.

Italy has the third highest death toll in the world from COVID-19, with 33,415 people dying since the outbreak came to light on Feb. 21. It has the sixth highest global tally of cases at 233,019.

Keisha Lance Bottoms speech yesterday imploring Atlanta to stop destruction.

Update: NEGATIVE I was just tested for Covid-19 - and the dreaded nasal swab did NOT appear!

I think I'm actually okay, but I went through Virginia's new symptom checker because I have a persistent cough, runny nose, and my sinuses are killing me. I went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago because I was having trouble breathing, but thought (and doctor agreed) it was allergy related.

Anyway, I'm supposed to have surgery June 5 to repair a busted septum (fell on my face right before Thanksgiving) and I was due to be tested anyway prior to surgery. It can take up to 5-7 days for a result. I'll call the ENT tomorrow to see if they want to wait or go ahead with their own testing.

The test was similar to a strep test - she just swabbed my throat. I'm supposed to lay low now at home, which I've been doing pretty much anyway.

Sorry for yet another post, but did I read that Tara Reade accused others of assault?

I thought I had read it and cannot find any info.

I did read that she stole from an animal non-profit, but I was under the impression she has made other false allegations.

Thank you.
