Tamaulipas had only a handful of cases and suddenly on Sunday Reynosa reports 81 cases. They’re clamping down on crossing the border.

We may finally start to see some serious studies on hydroxychloroquine. It seems there’s a couple of studies of this medication being given prophylactically to front line workers. Results will not be available until August but then this argument will be put to rest. I don’t like agreeing with Trump but I was not happy with the treatment prices for the new antivirals.

If hydroxychloroquine worked as a preventative, people who have Lupus or Rheumatoid arthritis, who are already taking it, would supposedly be protected. They aren't.

Very, very interesting. Not definitive but very interesting.

For sure, nothing definitive. That article is from April 2nd as well. I was unable to find updated data on it.

It isn't really advisable to try to bring down a fever when you are sick unless it is starting to get dangerously high. A fever is your body fighting off an infection- burning it out. If your temperature is below 103 it's no cause for panic.

In these times of corona the sooner you start antivirals the better.

Can anybody here comment on the use of a pulse oximeter? With a respiratory virus going around does it make sense to keep one in the house? It looks like they are easy to find at just about any price point from $10 U.S. on up.

I’ve read that with this virus they are seeing o2 sats falling with no obvious or apparent changes in patient’s well being. Usually a fall in o2 sats shows a patient becoming dyspneic but those signs are showing up later. Either way a pulse oximeter is good to have. I would get one now to establish a baseline so I could notice changes later. Most people run about 95% but age, history of respiratory problems and living in an elevated area will give you a different baseline.
Some units also give you a heart rate which is handy to know and others show a little wave form with each beat. You can then tell if your heart rate is regular. Many of us have missed beats or extra beats or other abnormal rates which you can tell your doctor about.

I know this is only one person but, holy crap, he's lucky. He is 43 and he was in great shape before the virus hit him.

I don't find his weight loss particularly shocking. Anyone would lose a bunch of weight being in the hospital for 6 weeks on intravenous feed, intubated and put into a coma. And he was a gym rat- he was probably taking protein supplements, etc to put on bulk.
But it's good when people who aren't in the "vulnerable demographic"- a relatively young man with no mentioned pre-existing conditions, posts their experience to make it clear this virus isn't particular about who it attacks.

I never thought of the protein supplements that he may have been taking.
Agree that everyone has to be aware that even the younger people can be adversely affected. To go from being so buff to being too weak to hold a cell phone.

Maybe they’re only testing the most critical which would give you a high death rate

I believe with very limited testing you pretty much have to present yourself at a hospital to be counted as a case. That would certainly skew the statistics.

A bit of good news!

https://ca.yahoo.com/news/doctors-say-cdc-backed-treatment-for-kids-with-inflammatory-syndrome-linked-to-coronavirus-is-highly-effective-161540741.html

Considering that the "cytokine storm" is what is worsening adults with Covid-19, could this not be used for them too? There are many, many young adults who could donate and, to me, this seems to be a more viable option than trying to cherry pick plasma with specific Covid-19 antibodies. Thoughts?

I mentioned previously that my son had this given to him about 30 years ago.
On a similar note a local plasma center has started to advertise for those having had the corona virus. There are many, many now who have had the virus so I’m glad to see the plasma centers starting to lure them in to donate.

I haven't been keeping up - big jump because there's more pts or because there's more testing?

Even with their crappy testing I believe Mexico will be reporting over 100,000 within two weeks. The real number will likely be 800,000. They need to totally lock down CDMX..........

There’s been an increased reporting NOB about Mexico’s covid problem so maybe mexico is testing more to give a more accurate picture. The sense that Mexico was peaking was completely false.
