tfw you get COVID-19 twiceUh oh
Hmm. What an absolute bugger of a virus this is.Uh oh
In the article it says the medications for COVID-19 damages the heart and the virus already damages the lungs, so if you get it again you are already in a weakened state.I wonder if it leaves some genetic code behind that triggers that if it comes back in contact with it, it's a pretty strong evolutionary route it went down.
You get sick and survive and it makes you want to leave from the rest of the sick people taking with you whatever stranglers you have still spreading the virus more.
Any other viruses that have this trait?
Ah it's a side effect of the medication, my bad my dumbass should have read the article. Thank you for clarifying. That's a lot less scary ... by like 1%
Especially when the article doesn’t give the sources and its through a doctor told his family member in another country who told the website in another country . It may be right but its a lot of somebody told me that ....
Saiseikai Arita Hospital has suspended outpatient consultations from April 14 to prevent infection, and has so far encouraged patients who have used the hospital and their family members who have symptoms such as coughs to consult a newly established contact outpatient clinic.
I mean shit I santaize the shit out of my hands after touching a shopping cart regardless of Corona virus. God knows what lives on those things. We already know people don't wash their hands.Just remembered that today at the grocery store, I actually saw a white woman wearing a surgical mask! And some old white guy using a sanitizing wipe to pick up a basket instead of his bare hands. So that's 2 people I've seen wearing masks in the Boston area these past few weeks other than me.
I need to know this Hawaii one. I’m literally going to Hawaii next week with a baby. Fuck manWell, look at the news from today. Dude in Japan with a confirmed case, just travelled there from Hawaii. Where was he before Hawaii? How long was he in Hawaii, what did he do there, how many people did he come into contact with, did any of them catch it from him, where did they go? 2 week lead time before any symptoms show, it feels like it's a hair's breadth away from exploding like... anywhere and everywhere. Trying to keep a lid on the anxiety but damn.
Luckily the guy in Texas was already under quarantine so that should curb any kind of spread there hopefully.
In a news conference Friday, state health officials said:
- The adult male traveler did not have any symptoms while visiting Maui from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3.
- But he did begin to exhibit “cold-like symptoms” while on Oahu from Feb. 3 to Feb. 7.
- On Oahu, he stayed at the Grand Waikikian by Hilton Grand Vacations. The state is still seeking more details on his exact itinerary, including which flights he was on.
- He was diagnosed with the virus on Feb. 8, after returning to Japan. Japanese news reports say that he had a fever of about 102 degrees.
I couldn’t work out if they are counting some of the cases reported yesterday.
I don’t think any of the published studies of CORVID 19 have been peer reviewed? It’s all preprints because the demands of public health are moving faster than the peer review process can accommodate. Which isn’t to say the peer reviews aren’t necessary to solidify agreement on the soundness of methodology, etc. sometime down the road. Full complete understanding of COVID 19’s epidemiology will take years or decades to fully explore.
None of the studies on medrxiv are, but there’s been plenty published elsewhere. Lancet have published several studies for instance:I don’t think any of the published studies of CORVID 19 have been peer reviewed?

There’s plenty of work going on in the background, all the way from the front lines of healthcare to the national and international levels. I’ve personally been involved in writing guidelines for the small primary care clinic I work at. You’re not seeing drastic action at this stage because there’s simply no convincing signs that engaging in it would do more good than harm.
As far humanitarian assistance, 33 governments and 4 International organisations have already provided medical supplies to China and further 17 governments are willing to send medical supplies to the country.
They are: Algeria, Australia, Belarus, Cambodia, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Ghana, Hungary, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Suriname, Tajikistan, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, the European Union, UNICEF, UNDP and the International Organization for Migration.
Even with the scaremongering and the increased racism, it still feels most think of this as an Asian thing and won’t affect them. There isn’t the worry and personal action to protect themselves that you find in places like HK that have gone through SARS.
Kate Gaynor, general manager and family medicine physician of Guangzhou United Family Hospital, told the Global Times on Saturday though there is not plenty of research yet on this particular new virus in general based on past studies, it is possible for a coronavirus to live, at least for some time, on paper.
China reported 2,641 new cases in the 24 hours through midnight Friday, raising the country's total to 66,492. Mainland China’s death toll rose to 1,523.
The number of new cases was down from the 5,090 in the previous 24-hour period after authorities changed the basis for counting patients.
Numbers of new cases have fluctuated, fueling optimism the disease might be under control and warnings such hopes are premature.
Good to know. I hoped it was something like this.There’s plenty of work going on in the background, all the way from the front lines of healthcare to the national and international levels.

The way the numbers have been calculated has changed a few times this week, hasn't it? If so it's really difficult to come to any conclusions about whether it's slowing or accelerating its spread. It seems like every day or two we find out that the virus is more resilient than thought (in terms of temperatures and what surfaces it can survive on).China has reported 143 new virus deaths and a decline in new cases while the government announced additional anti-disease measures as businesses reopen following sweeping controls that idled much of the economyabcnews.go.com
