    SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

    Test, test, test, test, test. The most informative thing we can do is test the hell out of people for antibodies. The government should pay for it and test as many asymptomatic people as is possible. It has the potential to help us get people back out there. If it turns out that a metric crap ton of people have had it, it can inform our decisions, and in short order. If it turns out that not as many have had it as we suspect... well, fudge. We also need to know about reinfection rates. There's so much that we don't know and a lot that we do.

    Once elected, im gonna combine trump and clinton. Gonna point to reporters and say "whats your question". And if its stupid, ill put on my dark shades, and drown them out with my hip ass saxophone goodness. Annoying white house correspondent -"Mr. President, you said 4 weeks ago that this is the time for Americans to come together, but youre now pushing for executive legislation to add the dodgers to the axis of evil, along with north korea and..."

    Just like that. But wed all be sitting on top like the movie Ghandi. And the chicks from that boober eats video clip would be bringing us grilled cheese sandwiches and bourbon. And that dead mouse dj would be spinning on the caboose. Now with a n95 mask over his mouse mask.

    First order of business. Cancel the stupid bullet train between LA and SF. Second order of business. Build a more relaxed, "chill train" (with the interior done up like a pimps cadillac) to Vegas.

    @gotbeer, I read this because you mentioned reading it, so had to see what you were getting at. I have no idea what the numbers are. And for all I know, yes, like the headine here reads, there could be some loose basing on cause of death. But two things. Number 1, the blunt reality. We arent doing autopsies. So if someone is in ICU with covid, and you die of a heart attack, like the attached article suggests here, the two are likely related. Again, that may be loose here... but nobody has the time to suit up and cut open rib cages to weigh organs right now. Similar to how nobody dies from AIDS. You die from one of several diseases. The cause of death is still AIDS, not pneumocystis. And second, as I said in a post a few days back, those people who are being found dead in their bed or on the couch, who were suffering from symptoms but werent tested, arent tested after they die either. So whereas, sure, some people may be getting over counted, I can attest that its also not being tracked outside of the hospitals, either. The number could actually be a lot higher than reported.

    Negative. This place is still a bar crowd scene where you can get away with calling someone a fucking idiot that you've drank a beer with before, but words like fag are a little over the top. Unless of course if it's from Spicoli. Then it's fair game! Enjoy, assholes!

    SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

    It will be interesting, in large part because the mortality rate in NYC is significantly higher than previous averages and deaths officially tied to the virus do not account for the difference. There are probably a large number of people dying that aren't being counted as covid related, or indirectly related (couldn't get access to emergency services/healthcare due to Covid related cases overburdening the healthcare system). This is a similar story to what is being told in Italy and Spain. https://gothamist.com/news/surge-number-new-yorkers-dying-home-officials-suspect-undercount-covid-19-related-deaths As of Monday afternoon, 2,738 New York City residents have died from ‘confirmed’ cases of COVID-19, according to the city Department of Health. That’s an average of 245 a day since the previous Monday. But another 200 city residents are now dying at home each day, compared to 20 to 25 such deaths before the pandemic, said Aja Worthy-Davis, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office. And an untold number of them are unconfirmed. That’s because the ME’s office is not testing dead bodies for COVID-19. Instead, they’re referring suspected cases to the city’s health department as “probable.” “If someone dies at home, and we go to the home and there [are] signs of influenza, our medical examiner may determine the cause of death was clearly an influenza-like illness, potentially COVID or an influenza-like illness believed to be COVID,” said Worthy-Davis. “We report all our deaths citywide to the health department, who releases that data to the public.” But the health department does not include that number in the official count unless it is confirmed, a spokesman said. “Every person with a lab confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis is counted in the number of fatalities,” the spokesman, Michael Lanza, said in an email. He said the city's coronavirus death tally does not break down who died at home versus who died in a hospital from the virus.... .... The FDNY says it responded to 2,192 cases of deaths at home between March 20th and April 5th, or about 130 a day, an almost 400 percent increase from the same time period last year. (In 2019, there were just 453 cardiac arrest calls where a patient died, according to the FDNY.) That number has been steadily increasing since March 30th, with 241 New Yorkers dying at home Sunday — more than the number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths that occurred citywide that day. On Monday night, the city reported 266 new deaths, suggesting the possibility of a 40% undercount of coronavirus-related deaths.

    I think his point is just that we have to use caution in how restrictive we go with this. We can’t be locked down for 6 months. The pain we inflict on ourselves will be worse than the virus.

    SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

    Dr. Peter Hotez, the most recent video I posted up and one of the curators of the SARS/MERS vaccination in 2012, mentioned there was kind of a four pronged approach to a vaccination and one of the possible elements was hydroxychloroquine. I don't know why people want to talk about Trump or blame/give him credit. Scientists are openly saying there needs to be more clinical trials, but at the rate it's spreading they are kind of taking a shot and using those candidates as quasi test subjects. Hell, a lot of these scientists and doctors have been treating with this because of the respiratory curing component. I tend to believe Dr. Hotez as he's kind of on the front lines with creating a vaccination/ cure and is believed to have one, but wants more clinical trials before launching. I'm a bit gun shy when it comes to media and sharing stories...I'd rather post a video clip where the subject/person says things directly than be misquoted or written with whatever bias the author wants to take, but if you Google Dr. Hotez, this is the first link and states he almost had a cure for this corona virus two years ago, but the funding dried up. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-care/scientists-were-close-coronavirus-vaccine-years-ago-then-money-dried-n1150091

    I actually asked him point blank last September about his .300 average and he said he doesn’t care. I’m sure he cares, but not enough to give up all that money.

    This. And it cant be said enough. Everyone is already bitching about the shutdowns, and we're barely in week 3. The longer we do things half assed, the longer this goes on for. Like Mr. Miyagi's grape lesson in karate kid 1. I said it in another thread, if we do things the right way, this thing will be contained a hell of a lot quicker than doing it the way we have been.

    when's the last time Republicans and the right let things like science get in the way of what they believe? If a doctor and patient think it's the right way to go, by all means...any port in the storm...but people really need to stop saying it's a proven cure with limited to no side effects and pushing it as a miracle cure

    Nope, the bottler went for another top that doesnt fit too well, and than some massive healthcare company paid about $5 a bottle. While that price might be highway robbery 4 months ago, in this case it was also hardly any profit for anyone. The micro brewer had to retool like crazy to get it made and the bottler burned all sorts of time and energy with his plant being otherwise shut down. However, people who were employed continued to get paid, which is what we are after at this moment.
