  1. They used the world's first randomized blind testing. TB is extremely good at developing a resistance to antibiotics. Now we have a combination therapy. And once again we see why you shouldn't ignore scientific/medical advice.
  2. Koch got his wish.... his own infectious disease institute. I guess we should encourage this type of behavior. Sigh.
  3. Part 2: "Barrel covers" is a God-tier euphemism. 😀 Unit commander: "NO CONDOMS that's inmoral" Soldiers: "No, you see, this is a protection for OUR RIFLES" commander:"oh ok, then you should practice with them" Soldiers: "Oh we will...practice"
  4. Venereal disease = Disease coming from Venus. LOL Men love to blame women....
  5. I was surprised to see this has affected mankind for 5 centuries.... sigh.

    genetic analyses of the virus have not found any substantial changes which would effectively disguise it from the immune system.

    "...the team used human blood stem cells and triggered mutations in the PARN gene that give rise to dyskeratosis congenita. These were then implanted into mice that were treated with the compounds, with the team finding the treatment boosted TERC, restored telomere length in the stem cells and had no

    Over the past century, the opinion that Vit-C can be used to treat cancer and viral infection has shown promises and controversies. There are cases where high dose Vit-C has shown benefits. In some cases, there have been no benefits. However, new knowledge regarding the pharmacokinetic properties of V
  8. My opinion is that you keep the correct levels of vitamin D in your body. Now a days, due to staying indoors, it is possible that you will develop the deficiency of vitamin D. Get this checked by your doctor and use the correct dose to stay healthy. Here are my notes: Daily 10 microgram or 400 IU/Day Lippincott’s Biochemistry Review 4th Edition. Page 388 Daily 5 mg of cholecalciferol or 200 IU of Vitamin D. However, 800 IU/Day is shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures. 800 IU/Day recommended by the Institute of Medicine to maintain bone health. Frank deficien
  9. New Coronavirus (COVID-19) Drugs: Remdesivir, Tocilizumab (Actemra), and Leronlimab | New Coronavirus Treatment Remdesivir, Tocilizumab, and Leronlimab are new medications against Coronavirus (COVID-19) that are being explored. Besides hydroxychloroquine, these are other medications being investigated in the context of a clinical trial and some for compassionate use to treat coronavirus (COVID-19). Remdesivir, developed by Gilead Sciences Inc., is an investigational broad-spectrum antiviral treatment that was previously tested in humans with Ebola and had shown promise in animal models for tre
  10. So these were pictures of people collapsing were posted on social media in the past few days til yesterday (2/23) but no mention in the news. This makes sense because there is no freedom of press in South Korea and everything gets censored. (I know this first-hand because I worked in public radio for half a year in Seoul) The situation may be even worse than what is reported considering these photos are all in very recognizable spaces in Seoul, not Daegu. What's crazy is that I have personally walked by all of these areas shown on this pictures as have most people from Seoul. As of this moment
  11. In the US pneumonia is the most common cause of hospitalization other than giving birth. Pneumonia is the #1 most common reason for US children to be hospitalized. Half of all non-immunocompromised adults hospitalized for severe pneumonia in the US are younger adults (18-57 years of age). Half of the deaths from bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia occur in people ages 18-64. Pneumonia is the most common cause of sepsis. After developing pneumonia, it often takes 6-8 weeks until a patient returns to their normal level of functioning and well being. Pneumonia can have
  12. I thought this was pretty interesting, as I was unaware of how common pneumonia really is:
      Hello guest!
    Given that there are about 1.86M emergency room encounters with pneumonia per year, consider that everyday over 5000 patients show up with pneumonia in US ERs. Goes to show how difficult it must be to separ
  13. Welcome to the Royal Caribbean, Such a lovely place (such a lovely place) Such a lovely face. Plenty of room at the Royal Caribbean, Quarantines are here (this time of year) you can find it here Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door I had to find the passage back to the place I was before 'Relax' said the CDC man, 'We are programmed to receive. You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave!'
  14. The cruise line operator Royal Caribbean has said it will refuse any passengers with Chinese, Hong Kong or Macao passports, regardless of when they were last in China. The remarkable statement comes after reports that about two dozen passengers aboard a cruise ship that docked in Bayonne, New Jersey, on Friday morning were screened for coronavirus and four were sent to a local hospital for further screening. In a statement published on its website,
  15. CDC only updating site on Mon/Wed/Fri instead of daily now? Anyone else find this suspicious that instead of daily updates as it had been for at least a week....on 2/5 the CDC decided to change to only updating their info 3 times a week. Suspicious. I think US cases will rise today on update, and not again until Monday when it should be sooo many more....maybe try to prevent mass panic over the weekend? Thoughts? Also hardly any news about possible cases out for testing in the US over the past couple days.
      Hello guest!
  16. If this was in a US harbor, US federal law would give each American citizen the right to a hearing within 3 days of being quarantined and right to counsel. One question on this for Japanese liner is whether Japanese national law would even follow WHO protocol. It’s in Japanese water so Japanese law would apply I think. Not sure they have due process like we do under USA constitution.
