Someone else posted a thread today showing a video from October 2019, of how the governments and corporations would respond to a pandemic.
That post and video are HERE and if you put it all together, this is starting to feel very intentional and scripted and going exactly as planned. Sure, there are always conferences and seminars that do these exercises and mock responses, but this happened one month before COVID first case was announced in China (November 2019), and the virus they chose for the mock simulations and discussions? You guessed it... COVID. Not ebola. Not typhoid. Not a new flu. COVID. All seems very strange to me.
Out of 12 people in the group, two to three saw changes in their lung capacity.
"They gasp if they walk a bit more quickly," Owen Tsang Tak-yin, the medical director of the authority's Infectious Disease Centre, told a press conference Thursday, according to the South China Morning Post.
"Some patients might have around a drop of 20 to 30% in lung function" after full recovery, he said.
Tsang added, however, that patients can do cardiovascular exercises, like swimming, the improve their lung capacity over time.
While it's too early to establish long-term effects of the disease, scans of nine patients' lungs also "found patterns similar to frosted glass in all of them, suggesting there was organ damage," Tsang said, according to the Post.
Current coronavirus patients' CT scans show "ground glass," a phenomenon in which fluid builds up in lungs and presents itself as white patches, as Business Insider's Aria Bendix has reported. The scans below, taken from one coronavirus patient at different points in time, show that the person's "ground glass" became more pronounced as their illness progressed.
