Covid question, couldn't find answer to. How soon can you

Test someone after exposure?

My dad had to go to hospital with back issues this past Wed. Doctor called my mom and said, " Well, we had him next a patient who got symptoms and tested positive. We moved your husband and will test him, results tomorrow"

Results were negative, he's home, but my mom still worried. Yet I can't find information where it says at what point a test picks up the virus.

IOW, if I am next to someone and pick it up, will a test show that 5 min after exposure and infection?

Is everyone dying of COVID in the most horrible distress they talk about?

They say, like you are drowning?

Or are some people sedated and don't have to die in that way?

Larry Summers advising Biden.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-23/larry-summers-advising-biden-campaign-on-economic-recovery

Former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers is advising Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on economic policy, including its plans to revive the U.S. economy after the coronavirus pandemic, according to five people familiar with his involvement.

The Obama and Clinton administration veteran’s role will likely roil progressives who view his past work on the 2009 recovery as too favorable to big banks. That’s awkward for the Biden campaign at a time when it is trying to win the trust of former supporters of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Summers was the first name on the “Biden do not reappoint list” published last month by the American Prospect’s Robert Kuttner, who wrote that Summers in 2009 “not only lowballed the necessary economic stimulus and ended it prematurely, but he successfully fought for rescuing the biggest banks rather than taking them into temporary receivership.”

Summers’s involvement in Biden’s campaign, however, would likely reassure Wall Street that Biden is not moving too far to the left from the centrist positions that earned him his establishment support.

Opposition from the left kept Summers from being nominated for Federal Reserve Chairman by President Barack Obama in September 2013, when a handful of Senate Democrats, including Warren, Sherrod Brown, Jon Tester and Jeff Merkley, complained to the White House that he was too lax on financial regulation. Summers withdrew his name from consideration after weeks of debate within the White House about a possibly difficult confirmation fight.

Biden commits to woman VP, but doesn't commit to woman of color

I’d Take Her In A Heartbeat’: Joe Biden Says He Would Pick Michelle Obama To Be His Vice President


Biden told KDKA he would not commit to a woman of color on his ticket.


Note: surely the following is mIsquoted? Just sounds pretty convoluted imho.

"I’ll commit to that be a woman because it is very important that my administration look like the public, look like the nation. And there will be, committed that there will be a woman of color on the Supreme Court, that doesn’t mean there won’t be a vice president, as well,” Biden said.

“I think it’s really important now that we establish once and for all, we should have had a woman president already, in Hilary (Clinton), in my view,” Biden added. “There are a number of qualified women out there.”

Best homemade mask material per new study..and Quack Dr. Don was WRONG

https://news.yahoo.com/best-coronavirus-face-mask-materials-new-study-120000624.html

President Donald Trump suggested it wouldn’t hurt the public to wear masks, but that scarves could be a perfectly suitable substitute.

It doesn’t have to be a mask. It can be a scarf,” Trump said. “What I do see people doing here is using scarves. And I think in a certain way, depending on the fabric, I think in a certain way, a scarf is better, it’s actually better.”

A new study of the best and worst materials for DIY face masks just proved he was absolutely incorrect.
