    It apparently can do that, but last I heard 80% of infected individuals had no symptoms and fully recovered.

    Maybe they are talking about the original 'symptoms' of Corona, like cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc.
    They say it can cause lasting damage/effects to the lungs, plus using the respirator increases the lung damage. We've learned that the respirator is usually used on the most critical patients and they usually die. Hopefully many have light cases without the lung damage.

    I'm like you USC, I can only rely on things I've heard and read, and at the beginning of all of this it emphasized that this virus was worse because it caused
    bilateral interstitial pneumonia and lung damage. Many chose to forget those early warnings and say, 'it's just a flu'. I paid attention because I am a long time smoker.

    It would be ILLEGAL for CDC to provide lists of names and addresses to the police, or to any private organization.
    I'm guessing it's as illegal as telling people they can't travel and go to work.

    IF Covid19 is considered a security threat, and a national security threat...... all medical privacy rights have been thrown out the widow.

    I'm not saying that's the case, I actually haven't thought about it till just now. It's worth looking into. We may be more screwed than we know.

    No, medical records are private.

    However public health records are not.

    The law requires doctors to disclose any "infectious disease" to the CDC.

    In practice though, it's the insurance company that does the reporting. They can legally do this because you signed a waiver allowing them to.

    Yes you did. When you signed up with the doctor, you signed a form authorizing the release of your medical information to the insurance company (for billing purposes, supposedly). The waiver didn't specify whether they were allowed to share it with other parties.

    I would not worry too much about this medical record business. Back in April of 2020, I found out that the medical industry and their "staff" may not be keeping as good of records on us, as we think they are keeping.

    My PCP referred me to a neurologist as a new patient. The only way this neuro doc will take referrals, is by getting a fax referral from the patients PCP. I called the neuro doc's office two weeks before my appt. date, just to be sure I was scheduled and I was on their books.

    So I get to the neuro doctors office as a NEW patient on my appt. date and time. I turn in all of the 6 sheets of my current data to the receptionist, they had mailed to me 3 weeks earlier. Just so I would have them filled out when I got to the office. Twenty minutes go by, as I sit in the waiting room.

    Suddenly, the receptionists calls me to her window and tells me, " Our records show that your primary care physician is Dr. XXX. Is that correct " ??

    I replied to her " No Maam, because I have not used that doctor since 2013, when she closed her practice".

    I’m taking this as a big nothing burger, the military changes it’s recruiting standards almost as much as we change our underwear. Right now with the general fear and uncertainty of the Chi-na flu they are just being extremely couscous, I believe as the panic subsides, things return to normal and more is known this policy will be changed.
