Id like to add that the person can start infecting people after 5 hours of catching the virus. Period of no symptoms will vary from person to person. Quarantine minimum should be 28 days and not 14 days. Also be aware of a sudden nose bleed after going out shopping in highly populated areas. This can be shown when wearing a N65 mask. Not to cause a bloody nose or a runny nose, just a slight discharge of blood and this also could be of the dry cough. The dry cough it self is contagious to some people if exposed to it in a teaching or family situation. I always look at youtube for the English teachers and see if they are coughing on video when in class.

And maybe a way to break down the virus proteins, an and smite it???


The problem with that is a "complement cascade".

Any treatment that would break down virus proteins would have to be too specific, and with corono viruses capturing host RNA, you'd end up with lipid bi-layers of normal cells being attacked along with the cells containing the virus.

You'd kill the host to "smite" the virus.

Flu shots certainly vary from country to country, so their will likely never be any accurate data but, I am of the belief it weakens our immune system over time. I've not had a Flu shot in over 20 years..I take Flaxseed oil twice daily..haven't had a Flu in 20 years.

How will young children and infants be affected?



Children are more susceptible because they have a shorter escalation to critical.

Their lung capacity, their body volume plays into it.

Children also have a more robust immune system.

So it would depend.

Best action? Take no chances and treat aggressively.

Yikes.
So the solution would be to wait until the virus shows itself?

Could it just go away on its own?

And I guess I wonder, how are people recovering from this?

In order to test, you'd need serum IGG/IGM antibodies to test it against.

In order to get serum IGG/IGM antibodies, you'd need infected people to collect it from.



Ok? So should we be outraged if there is a shortage of testing kits or is it impossible at this point?



To be honest? I'd be suspect of any testing kit.

Most people are recovering, most immune systems are capable of dealing with this.

It's not the end of the world.

In your opinion after witnessing the response to this virus first hand, how do you think the medical industry / world would fare against a virus that was much more deadly?

True.

I've also heard a theory some people May recover from one strain, then pick another.
Supposedly there are two strains now???

Without looking it up I recall an L and an S strain.

There will probably be subsets of both with varying degrees of lethality.

Yes, L and S.

I'll be honest.

The latest we've heard from State Infection Control is an admonishment for our jokes about it.

We've all have developed a very dark humor in order to stay sane.

Some just don't appreciate it.

DBC? Can I just say this ..we-EMT/Ambulance Responders aren't doing a single thing differently.

Nothing. Standard precautions. Think about that.

I got blood, guts, you name it

To add kids: dbl gloves, face masks, min. P.PE., hand and surface washing.

365 days a yr. No different now.

I hope like hell you're getting P100 masks.

Now, you're saying kids would be more susceptible, but at the same time, what we've gotten from China ... I know ... shows that overall the young seems to weather this one very well.

If that's so, why might that be do you think since the very old and very young are usually most vulnerable due to underdeveloped immunity on one side and compromised/weakened immunity on the other? To me, that seems to be one of the stranger aspects of the stats we've gotten so far.

It's more than that.

Take dehydration.

In an adult, dehydration curve is a long slope.

In a child, it's steep.

It's the same with any attack on a childs' body. there's just not the volume to compensate.

I'm not saying kids are safe if that's what you think. I'm saying it seems odd that they're showing less severe cases than other age groups.

I don't think we have enough data to claim that children are safe.

In my opinion.
