It’s with great regret the announcement of Bill Wheeler K0DEW is now SK, The Hobby just lost a great man, He will be missed by many. He was an avid collector of Collins gear, DX’er , CW, and digital.  He was one of those go to guys for getting answers to questions not known & he never looked down no matter how dumb it might have been.  I meet him through the Missouri traffic Net some 20 years ago. 
His Ham shack was one only to dream about. Look him up QRZ and you’ll see for yourself the operator he must have been. 

Bill, May you Rest In Peace my friend, Corey

No offense taken.  I simply misunderstood your use of the gloves.  I have just seen too many reports of folks who are taking ancillary measures rather than the primary recommendations which have been coming out from the CDC for weeks.

Yes, wear the gloves, and the masks, when out in public.  But think about what is happening.  And as you move from location to location, change out the gloves.  This is what health care workers have done for years, moving from patient to patient.  I have had people give me dirty looks and gestures because I pull my mask down while driving in my vehicle, even though I make sure it's covering my mouth and nose when I exit my vehicle.

Please be advised that I applaud your concerns and hand washing advise (in moderation).  I hope I have not offended.  My hope in this email is to provide accurate information leading to effective measures, and also possibly reduce the fear factors that make this pandemic even worse than it would be if we had sufficient data.

We do not.  Extensive testing for both antibodies and antigen (the virus) continue o be woefully inadequate.

Stay well.  And keep calm if possible.

Fred,

I believe that that number is similar to  what they have seen in Iceland, where they have a relatively high level of testing in the country's small population.
This is why I wear a mask on the very rare occasions when I go out.  What if I have it and don't know?  

The gloves are for my protection.  The mask is because I don't want to take the chance that I might silently and unknowingly spread  virus to others.
