Doctors found another strange coronavirus symptom no one can explain | BGR

Some of the people infected with the novel coronavirus who survive COVID-19 will then experience persistent symptoms for weeks or even months after the illness, in what’s known as “Long COVID.”
Doctors are still trying to understand the lingering symptoms, with the Westchester Medical Center in New York running a treatment and study program for long haulers.
Now, a new report explains another strange coronavirus symptom that can appear with Long COVID: Some people have experienced skin peeling off their hands and a strange purple discoloration in their fingers.

Une nouvelle étude sur un car chinois conforte la thèse de la transmission aérienne du coronavirus

C’est un nouvel indice que le coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 est très probablement transmissible par voie aérienne.

[...] un passager infecté et asymptomatique a contaminé le tiers des passagers de son autocar mal ventilé pendant un trajet de moins d’une heure.

La thèse de la transmission du virus par l’air que chacun expire et inspire, plutôt que par les seules grosses gouttelettes expulsées par l’éternuement et la toux, était initialement négligée par les autorités sanitaires du globe [...]

Sur 68 personnes, 23 autres passagers de ce car ont été contaminés. A l’inverse, aucune infection n’a été relevée dans le car numéro un, identique.

[...] article publié mardi 1er septembre par la revue médicale américaine JAMA Internal Medicine, [...]

Good News


The Oxford Covid-19 vaccine has been approved and will be introduced next week. Because it does not need to be kept at very low temperatures it will be easier to transport and keep. By the time I qualify for a vaccine I think that this one will be for me.

land der ahnungslosen


tatsache ist:
Fast alle deutschen Hotspots liegen in Sachsen.
und es ist auch wirklich so schlimm, wie man denkt:
Viele sächsische Kliniken arbeiten an der Kapazitätsgrenze. Weil Betten fehlen und das medizinische Personal nicht mehr ausreicht.
wo haben diese leute gelebt? welche nachrichten haben sie mitbekommen? offenbar gar keine oder nur afd-tv
Kombiniert mit den Erfahrungen im Sommer, als die Fallzahlen überall niedrig und stabil waren, seien einige Menschen im Herbst regelrecht überrascht gewesen, "dass das doch ein Problem werden kann", so Ahrens.
jetzt passiert genau das, was die fachleute anfang des jahres beschrieben haben, das passieren werde, wenn man keine ausreichenden gegenmaßnahmen im sommer und herbst vornehme. das ist kein geheimnis, es war nicht versteckt, und man musste sich quasi beide ohren zuhalten, um davon nichts zu hören, während man krampfhaft versuchte, nicht auf die entsprechenden textnachrichten zu schauen.

ist das dieses berühmte tal der ahnungslosen aus ddr-zeiten? ich dachte, das sei anno dunnemals nur technisch bedingt gewesen. aktuell sieht es aber aus, als sei diese ahnungslosigkeit eine genetisch verankerte zuchtwahl ...

Corona-Hotspots abriegeln? In Sachsen liegen die Nerven blank | DW | 17.12.2020


Die Infektionszahlen schnellen in Sachsen nach oben, Krankenhäuser sind überfüllt, die Landesregierung denkt über Ausgangssperren nach: Trotz Lockdown eskaliert die Lage im Osten Sachsens. Droht ein zweites Bergamo?

The war on prevention II: Battle metaphors undermine cancer treatment and prevention and do not increase vigilance

Author: David Hause


Abstract

Bellicose metaphors for cancer are ubiquitous. But are they good metaphors for health communicators to use? Because metaphors can guide reasoning about abstract concepts, framing cancer with metaphors of battle, war, and enemies leads people to apply attributes of these concepts to cancer. The current research investigates how this affects inferences about cancer treatment, prevention, and monitoring. Battles and war are usually seen as being difficult. Indeed, reading about a person’s “battle” or “fight” against cancer makes cancer treatment seem more difficult (studies 1-4). One way to approach a battle is to surrender and give up control. Consistent with this implication, battle metaphors increase fatalistic beliefs about cancer prevention (e.g., believing that there is little one can do to prevent getting cancer; study 3). Finally, even though battles invoke vigilance and action, Study 4 failed to find that such metaphors motivate people to immediately see their doctor when imagining a cancer scare. These findings suggest that bellicose metaphors for cancer can influence the health beliefs of nonpatients in ways that may make them less willing to enact healthy behaviors.

So klar beschrieb die Deutsche Botschaft in China die Anfänge von Covid-19:

->Januar 2020: Coronavirus-Berichte aus BRD-Botschaft in Peking ,,,

Buzzfeed veröffentlicht 180 Seiten Lageberichte des Auswärtigen Amtes und kommentiert:
BuzzFeed News Deutschland veröffentlicht nun die Coronavirus-Lageberichte der deutschen Botschaft in China aus den ersten Wochen diesen Jahres im Original. Die Berichte zeigen ein klares Bild der sich täglich verschärfenden Lage im chinesischen Wuhan. Quasi gleichzeitig sprach Gesundheitsminister Jens Spahn damals davon, dass es für übertriebene Sorge keinen Grund gebe.

T-cell Covid immunity 'present in adults six months after first infection' | World news | The Guardian

Cellular (T-cell) immunity against the virus that causes Covid-19 is likely to be present within most adults six months after primary infection, with levels considerably higher in patients with symptoms, a study suggests.
The data offers another piece of the puzzle that could be key to understanding whether previous Sars-CoV-2 infections – the virus behind Covid-19 – can prevent reinfection, and if so, for how long.

The airborne lifetime of small speech droplets and their potential importance to SARS-CoV-2 transmission | Zenodo

Movies that show the experimental setup and the full 85-minute observation of speech droplet nuclei.

The full movie recording of highly sensitive laser light scattering observations that indicate loud-speaking generates, in addition to hundreds of regular droplets, also many thousands of micro-droplets per second. This movie clip shows the decay of airborne particles.

The FDA just approved the first coronavirus drug – but this new medicine might be even better | BGR


Very interesting.
Researchers tested a cancer drug called plitidepsin as a coronavirus therapy and discovered it can block the virus’s ability to replicate.

The use of plitidepsin reduced viral loads after just seven days and improved blood test markers for inflammation.

Nearly 40% of a limited group of patients who received various doses of plitidepsin were discharged after just eight days in the hospital.

Masks can protect you from more severe COVID-19, experts say - Los Angeles Times

Cloth face masks still provide a major protective benefit: They filter out a majority of viral particles.

As it turns out, that’s pretty important. Breathing in a small amount of virus may lead to no disease or a more mild infection. But inhaling a huge volume of virus particles can result in serious disease or death.
So wear the fcking mask!

The New York Times: Can You Get Covid-19 Again? It’s Very Unlikely, Experts Say (By Apoorva Mandavilli)

 

Masks offer much more protection against coronavirus than many think | Los Angeles Times

There’s a common refrain that masks don’t protect you; they protect other people from your own germs, which is especially important to keep unknowingly infected people from spreading the coronavirus.
But now, there’s mounting evidence that masks also protect you.
If you’re unlucky enough to encounter an infectious person, wearing any kind of face covering will reduce the amount of virus that your body will take in.

Coronavirus came to UK 'on at least 1,300 separate occasions' | BBC News

Coronavirus was brought into the UK on at least 1,300 separate occasions, a major analysis of the genetics of the virus shows.
The study, by the Covid-19 Genomics UK consortium (Cog-UK), completely quashes the idea that a single "patient zero" started the whole UK outbreak.
The analysis also finds China, where the pandemic started, had a negligible impact on cases in the UK.
Instead those initial cases came mostly from European countries.
