That was an excellent thread. May have to look it back over it now that there are papers reporting that CoVID-19 has been found in the brain.

It not only causes seizures. It can make you kinda like "forget to breath".



Can it? Yes. Does it, as part of it's general M.O.? No, almost certainly not. There's a plethora of pathogens that can cause neurological symptoms in truly severe cases. Encephalopathy happens, unfortunately, sometimes from something as small as a bug that causes a "cold" in most people, sometimes with unknown origin. Heck, the most common cause of Guillain Barre Syndrome is a pathogen that causes gastrointestinal illness, but there you go. As with any illness, sometimes it's science, sometimes it's just luck. While it's important to know and understand that encephalopathy is a potential complication for many illnesses, it is still rare in most cases, as it probably is in this case.

I went to see my doctor today and they asked if I had done any travel, my response was what difference would it make if I said yes, you don't have any test kits.

Cant see your avatar on mobile, sir. Traveling nurse make a decent wage. I doubt 3640/wk is a high enough hike in remuneration to tempt many.

The reports that they are finding the virus in the brain and stem of many patients and test animals is what has me most concerned.




Yes, it has been known for many years that Coronavirus can pass the blood-brain barrier and affect the central nervous system.

Even H1N1 couldn't pass the BBB and you people still chatter on about it being just like the flu...

101,000 Americans are admitted to a U.S. hospital EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Source: www.statista.com...

How many of those are CoronaVirus-19 patients?

Anybody know?

Enough that we should be concerned about being hospitalized due to this disease?

....Asking for a friend.

I would like to know if there is any long term effects if you recover from this. What does recovery mean? Like recovery from the flu, back to normal or is there some long term effects? So many unknowns

Virus can be attach to particles that are in air, this was discussed in coronavirus updates earlyer, a study done in China proved that influenza virus can be attach to pollution particles in air.....after that it needs just wind to fly.

I dunno, if generalizing the pandemic, lessens the concern of it.

Vigilant yes I would still be concerned about it, since it’s a global event.

The virus is not a bloodborn pathogen, as the first screen indicates. It's airborn.

It's not bloodborn.


Exactly. The OP probably isn't aware of the multitude of types of PPE based on the issue. When I worked for a hospital recently the PPE training was mandatory and there should be PPE there to cover everything except a nuclear blast. Maybe not enough for everyone in the hospital, but certainly all of the on-site staff. I can't see this being a real problem unless the hospital in question has a moron for a safety director.

Covid19 can live on plastic for up to 216 hours.

Removing the ppe infects you and your underlying garments just as easily.

Go work in a hospital for a few years, then come back and tell me all about PPE. M'kay?

I don't know about this virus but in the 70's when the hong kong flu hit people caught in the early spring and had relaps in the fall that was worse than the original infection.

Seems fishy they refuse to test her..who the hell is in charge?'


Why can't the hospital she works at test her? Isn't there a way to have a lab test a sample?

It may be because it is a new virus so they have to make a new test.

Looks like there were a few "bumps" getting a reliable test ready. I read they have a good test now and testing will start soon.
