The Resolved

Folks who’ve had it, survived and have gotten well. Are they:

  • Immune to re-infection?
  • Still contagious without new exposure?
  • Contagious if they’re exposed to an infected person (or tiger)?
  • How do we know?

The last answer is obvious: testing, testing, testing. This gets pretty granular; I’ll cover this in another post.

At the least, a Resolved will have antibodies that can defeat the virus with which doctors are doing serum testing. This is not a new treatment strategy (1889-1895), so I’m hopeful. Further, a Resolved could potentially go back to their jobs, helping to soften the blow on our economy and our companies .. if they meet the criteria (and others, I’m sure) from the list above.

Until you have had it .. and gotten over it, none of this applies to you or to me. “Behave like you have it ..

Stay connected. Stay safe. Stay home.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
