>> More bad news is that 5 days after I left, he got very ill with vomiting, and had to go to a hospital.  He thinks it's conceivable he got this COVID-19, although I don't think he has been tested for that.   Yet.  He is also fairly close to the Chinese community in Seattle, which is about 4.5% of the population there.
>> More bad news is that I hear that especially hard-hit are old men.   In little more than 1 month, I turn 62.
>> More bad news is that people with diabetes are hit harder.  I have diabetes.
>> So, anyone want to take bets on whether I fall ill in the next 2-3 weeks?

Live houseless, on a thousand dollars a month, therefore not getting the best nutrition or a place to bed down and rest/recuperate all day, and yet after four days of mid-grade fever and chills, and a few more with a phlemy cough, I'm very much alive.
