I thought one of our infectious disease guys had said something about that had to do with the vitamin D being absorbed by the patient and not the effect the sun had on the virus.  That said, I was in a different conversation at the time so I could be wrong.

That said, there is plenty of direct sunlight out there where he lives.

I was always told that you actually don't get much vitamin D from sunlight, certainly not what your body needs. Doctors always recommend supplements to get levels up if you can't get it from foods. 

That said, I'm hearing that people with proper D levels fair much better if they do contract the virus. Probably what that doc was saying. That and C and zinc.

It's 10:53 p.m. my time and shows to be 106 degrees there.

 Snakes and scorpions is about the only thing that can stand that much heat!  The sand and rock must be like a furnace all night!

Doesn't look like the truck did to well either.  Wonder if he just fell asleep?

That is possible, he blew right through a stop sign.

It is also lucky there was no fire, this article shows photos of the gas pumps he ran over;

Great photos!   It doesn't seem like there is enough population for the cases to be up!   :011:

 :011:

The population is actually about 40,000 or so.  Though I'm not sure if that's counting snakes and scorpions.   :002:

You know the old expression "he bought the farm"? Well, this trucker bought the store.

The TV show "Snapped" did a story on a high profile murder close to the store which is mentioned in this magazine;

By day, the hilltop house at Mt. Athos is obscured by trees. After dark, however, its lights can be seen from the Somerset Center Store, down at the rural intersection that constitutes the town. At about nine on the night of November 13, 2001, Wanda Donivan, one of the women who take turns managing the store, called her sister Sarah Rogers. “Something's wrong up on the hill,” she said. “It's all lit up.”

It was a local landmark. It was a miracle no one was killed!  I was there on Monday! They made great sandwiches and sliced the meat as you ordered!
