    This is a study posted by someone on the main thread.

    https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600(20)30354-4/fulltext

    Can someone who is au fait with this kind of stuff have a look at it and explain the findings.

    What is defined there as the viral load ?

    Is it the population of infected cells in the individual nasal passage at the time of the test?

    How does that correlate to the amount of virus that individual was initially infected with,?

    And how did morbidity rise as a function of the viral load ?Linearly ?

    Presumably not linearly but what kind of exponential relationship was found?
