I went to the hospital today for some work, they where doing Corona virus testing at the entrance.
Did you guys get tested?
Did you guys get tested?
I remember the first ever patient in india saying how she got to eat whatever she wanted (biryani, loads of it). I wouldn't expect the same treatment now however lolBody temperature.
I had runny nose ,sore throat,cough, fever (coronavirus symptoms) last week. If i went last week they would have put me in quarantine lol.
Unless he went to govt approved testing centre it will only be thermal. They won't test unless he has symptoms.Real testing or just body temperature?
This may not be totally wrong. This is more than a medical crisis. There is politics involved and what people think about the virus will determine the course of future events:Govt's agenda is to create fear
Most people will have minor symptoms or remain asymptomatic.Does measuring body temp even help? I'm seeing reports in news that carriers don't show any symptoms for weeks before falling ill.
They should manufacture some test that can be taken at home. Like a litmus test paper. Spit on it and after an hour or so if it changes color a person is positive. Mass manufacturer something like this so that people can buy the kit and do the tests themselves.
Nope buddy. Though I'm not fully aware of Indian situation, in Europe, we are having a very bad public health crisis.Unless he went to govt approved testing centre it will only be thermal. They won't test unless he has symptoms.
They are not expanding testing to private hospitals because it will create a panic.
Already govt is being charged with just that according to these clowns !!
Govt is creating a scare in the country to promote foreign medicines
Govt's agenda is to create fear
Its wrong and laughably so because the last thing the govt needs is panic.This may not be totally wrong. This is more than a medical crisis. There is politics involved and what people think about the virus will determine the course of future events:
I've been following this and whatever the right said about China was used by the Left against Trump. Word for word.1. US/Right - they can use this scare to declare China a rogue country and renegotiate trade deals. Right now, most of the generic medicines that US consumes are produced in china. This gives Trump/Nationalists a reason to bring the production back.
2. US/Left - If they can scare the public enough, they can make Trump look incompetent. They are trying hard but not succeeding.
Going by the statements of their FO spokesperson there is an attempt to shift the blame. Because if people blame China then they expect China to PAY!3. China - They are already trying to Change the narrative. One senior military official went on record saying that the virus originated in the US. Today they have offered a billion masks and test kits to Africa. The longer the west is locked down, the more time China has to consolidate its position in the world.
By the time they come out with something the virus will have run its course. Any viable vaccine is a year to two away. The reason is the acceptance testing. Making the drug is one thing, making it so it does not cause more problems than its trying to solve is the hard part. There is a dengue vaccine out but the side effects are so severe they had to withdraw it.4. pharmaceutical companies - The more scared you are, the more profits they make when the vaccine/cure comes out.
Been following those that track this crisis and people living through it. Not so much the media.5. Media - They love a crisis. They more scared you are, the more Media stands to gain.
American wingnut territory. The comments section for some of these videos are 95% trolls, quacks & idiots. Why would they want depopulation. More supply in the workforce means cheaper rates. Automation has taken over lower end jobs for a while now. The fear is it can do higher end. This is i do not think will be so easy and is hyped.6. They super rich - With people scared, it is easier to offer 'solutions' (which almost always involve structural changes that take power and choice away from common people). They do not need most of us anyway. With automation taking over low end jobs, the global machine needs fewer cogs. Another round of depopulation wouldn't hurt.
Sequencing the genome and the so called race is media created. China sequenced theirs long back and handed over.By the time they come out with something the virus will have run its course. Any viable vaccine is a year to two away.
India is already in the race having become the 5th country to sequence the genome.

Agreed on the vaccine.Sequencing the genome and the so called race is media created. China sequenced theirs long back and handed over.
Sequencing is a very very minor part of development of vaccine. I wouldn't go into details but we are years away from a suitable vaccine and it may never come or not fully effective.
Vaccine is not the primary concern at this point.
This cytokine storms needs to be treated more efficiently and US is close.
Monoclonal antibodies may save us.
6. These are European guidelines, I'm not sure of what is happening in India beside piss drinking.
What about dust masks ? those are N90 as in blocks 90% of particulatesIf you can not find N95/99/ usual disposable masks, PLEASE DO NOT USE WOOLLEN OR SIMILAR masks (used during winters). A home made paper mask is far more effective. In fact woollen mask can actually expose you to higher risk.
Used successfully here on a couple of Italian tourists in their late 60s. They're now negative.Lopinavir, Ritonavir ( anti retrovirals) has been used in Japan and possibly Thailand. However there is no conclusive evidence of their effectiveness.
According to this study not much. But they aren't using the same modelMi Pollution masks.....Any Good?

Say this to any one in China, HK, Taiwan or Singapore and they will always insist wearing a mask is better than nothing“Even if experts are saying it’s really not going to make a difference, a little [part of] people’s brains is thinking, well, it’s not going to hurt. Maybe it’ll cut my risk just a little bit, so it’s worth it to wear a mask,” she says. In that sense, wearing a mask is a “superstitious behavior”
The more commonly worn surgical masks will limit — but not eliminate — the chance of inhaling large, infectious particles circulating near the face. Until Tuesday, the CDC had recommended that health-care workers interacting with coronavirus patients or suspected cases wear N95 respirators, along with gowns, gloves and eye protectors. The N95 filters must be custom-fitted and cost more than surgical masks.
