People with Covid-19 are not immune to OTHER things that might make them sneeze. This is also the end of the flu season and the start of the allergy season. And sometimes, people just sneeze because a little speck of dust flies into their nose and tickles it.

I sometimes will sneeze when I leave the house on a sunny day and look up in the direction of sunlight. Many people sneeze in supermarkets, because there's a lot of dust in supermarkets.

Hayfever happens even to people with Covid-19.

So sure - sneezing is not a symptom of Covid-19 but that doesn't mean "if they sneeze they don't have Covid-19." It just means "the sneeze had nothing to do with any Covid-19 they might or might not have."

I sneeze my way round most of the exec golf courses.
Whatever chemical has been sprayed sets me off, every time.
Thinking of wearing a mask and carrying a few toilet rolls next time I play!

You will never hear about the virus in the villages. It is not the real world. All they care about here is selling houses to old people

You will be completely safe if you stay home. And don't touch your mail. The Villages is not your mama.

I see you are Dr. Doug.

I am Dr. Mom.

When we approach the 27,000 annual deaths from regular flu, I will start to panic with y'all.

27,000 is a low year
26,000 to 54,000 is the range over the last 30 years

And whoever posted that covid-19 is 50-100 times as deadly as regular influenza should check their facts, 3-8 times is the best current estimate

This might be of interest.

From Oct. 1, 2019 to Feb. 29, 2020 between 24,000 and 52,000 people have died in the U.S. This a media hype. Do what you should always do during Flu season cover coughs and sneezes and wash your hands. Now go out and play. Enjoy yourself.

Not sure what kind of Dr. you might be... There is no such thing as a contaminate policy. There are procedures to control and clean up contamination. And there are containment policies. If you are going to post using what might lead readers to think you are a medical professional it would behoove you to use the word you mean every time. Containment is possible with Ebola because its disease manifestations are dramatic and rapid and its transmission requires a significant non-casual exposure. Containment is not possible with an organism that has a longer incubation period during which the patient is contagious, many cases are of low severity or sub-clinical, and spread is possible from casual contact. Corona is not Ebola. The containment option continues to be viable in small confinable outbreaks, like a cruise ship. But once corona is in the community at large it will do what it is going to do. And that is the unknown. Will it be a mild disease in most everyone and disappear from circulation like SARS and MERS did? Or will it be intense and severe moving from town to town and become a true devastating pandemic like Spanish flu did 100 years ago. We'll know in a few weeks or months. I am thinking this will fizzle but you can't count on it and must prepare for the pandemic alternative. That means a well funded CDC, well funded state and local health departments staffed by professionals trained in public health and available epidemiologists and infectious disease experts. And perhaps that those guiding the nation's response to Corona not treat a visit to the CDC as a partisan campaign event.

The Ebola vaccine which you credit with arresting the disease has only been approved in the US in Dec 2019. So it had nothing whatsoever with protecting the US during 2016's Ebola scare. It, or a similar experimental vaccine, had been used in Africa in areas with endemic and epidemic Ebola to prove efficacy beginning in 2015 that vaccinated contacts and contacts of contacts to known cases. There has not been any widespread immunization campaign in Africa.
