    Corona Virus?

    Do any of the nurses or anyone in the medical field want to comment on the Corona Virus?

    #2
    Like any other virus, stay away from those infected, have been around someone who is infected or those that have recently visited that city, wash hands frequently , wear a mask when out in public if you are really concerned.
    There is no vaccination yet. If you have symptoms which are similiar to the flu, pneumonia go to ER and be tested.

      It seems the virus only came to light very recently, like 10 days or so. At first China reported 4 dead, then 9, then 22, then 56 and over the weekend I read they had over 100,000 cases and it had spread to at least 15 countries with 6 cases in the U.S. Guam supposedly got flooded by thousands of Asians trying to escape. None of this is being reported by the mainstream media and is downplayed if reported at all. Anybody at all hearing or seeing anything?

        This is not a SCI care issue. Moving it to the Health News forum.

        Here is CDC information about this outbreak:

            Still not much on mainstream news but am hearing from others that the number of cases has doubled over night, as has the number of deaths at 107. And that it has spread to 30+ countries. My understanding is, you can have the virus without knowing it and can give it to someone else, which is why it spreads so fast. Have not heard if any more cases are in the US.

                  A Jet just landed in the US with about 210 US citizens, who evacuated from Wuhan, China, to escape the deadly corona virus. If this is just another virus, why is Wuhan building a new 100,000 bed hospital which is expected to be finished in a few more days.

                      The numbers are skewed partially because the CDC has not updated since 1-21, plus, anyone caught reporting on scoial media in China can be put in prison for seven years. No fear, the vaccine will be brought out soon. I believe there was a new case in Arkansas as of last evening.

                        It's spreading fast.

                        It's mortality rate is less than one-third that of SARS and less about one-fifteenth that of MERS.

                        Chance of death if you get MERS: 34%
                        Chance of death if you get SARS: 9.5%
                        Change of death if you get Corona: 2.2%

                        But you go ahead and make as much of a stink about it as you want.

                          Pity he can't keep it private. There was an interesting opinion column in the NYTimes about the Chines politics of this viral containment. The column itself is ho hum, but the readers comments offer an excellent discussion. I thoroughly enjoy reading a discussion among the edjucated elite who read the NYTimes. I only wish more of us enjoyed good educations.

                            You have to understand how they determined the percent of death.

                            This video explains the distortion percentage of death rate. Go to 3:30 and it is explained.



                            The flu season in the United Stated 2018-2019. CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018-2019 influenza season.

                            No big concern for the novel coronavirus.

                            China's Wuhan Coronavisus 2020 was exactly like Chernobyl 1986. Russia didn't say anything for three weeks until nuclear power workers in Scandinavia enter the plant activating the geiger counter upon entry. Something was wrong.

                              It is amazing that you have stats on a virus that came to light only a month ago. As of yesterday China had over 50 million people under quarantine. You can find that on the mainstream media now. It is much worse according to intel sources, far greater than we even want to know as far as how many are infected and how many dead. Get real.
