Merkblatt zur aktuellen #COVID-19 Testung in der Schweiz

PCR/NAT
Die PCR (Polymerase-Kettenreaktion) ist eine NAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology)-
Methode, der modernen Molekularbiologie um in einer Probe vorhandene Nukleinsäure (RNA oder
DNA) in vitro zu vervielfältigen und danach mit geeigneten Detektionssystemen nachzuweisen. Der
Nachweis der Nukleinsäure gibt jedoch #keinen #Rückschluss auf das Vorhandensein eines
#infektiösen #Erregers. Dies kann nur mittels eines #Virusnachweises und einer #Vermehrung in der
#Zellkultur erfolgen.

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!

Can You Become Reinfected With Covid-19? It's Very Unlikely, Experts Say - The New York Times

Reports of reinfection instead may be cases of drawn-out illness. A decline in antibodies is normal after a few weeks, and people are protected from the coronavirus in other ways.

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.

Bypassing clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccine 'catastrophic,' says editorial

http://global.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202005/23/WS5ec88c5ca310a8b241157ca4.html

Bypassing clinical trials of a potential vaccine for #SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing #COVID-19, would be "catastrophic," said an editorial published on #Science Advances on Friday.

It is "vital to take time" to ensure any vaccine candidate's safety and investigate potential adverse effects, said the editorial by Douglas Green, deputy editor of the multidisciplinary scientific journal.

A vaccine able to trigger strong neutralizing antibody responses in #clinical tests will still not be ready for widespread implementation without comprehensive safety tests, wrote Green, who is also an expert on #immunology.

Vaccines must be examined for causing an effect known as antibody-dependent enhancement, whereby #vaccine-induced #antibodies that bind to the #virus also attach to the body's #cells, facilitating #infection of these cells -- a concerning phenomenon that has been observed in vaccines against #dengue, #Ebola, #HIV, and #feline #coronavirus, said the editorial.

Ethical accelerated testing on humans "should not be ruled out completely," but extreme risks must be weighed against potential benefits, it said.

There are currently 95 vaccines under development against SARS-CoV-2, with most expected to clear phase one, and two already moving into phase two trials, it added.

Recovered COVID-19 patients test positive but not infectious, data finds | Ars Technica

People who recover from COVID-19 but test positive for the virus again days or weeks later are not shedding viral particles and are not infectious, according to data released Tuesday by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Another choir story.

Coronavirus doctor's diary: The strange case of the choir that coughed in January | BBC Health


The writer, Prof John Wright, is a medical doctor and
head of the Bradford Institute for Health Research, and a veteran of cholera, HIV and Ebola epidemics in sub-Saharan Africa.
He's also an epidemiologist, which is:
a medical detective, and like all detectives, the three key clues we are looking for are always: person, place and time.

So when I got an email out of the blue from a Bradford resident saying that she and her friends may have been infected with Covid-19 in January - nearly two months before the first confirmed case of transmission in the UK - I looked for these clues and decided to investigate further.

A choir decided to go ahead with rehearsal. Now dozens of members have COVID-19 and two are dead | LA Times

the choir outbreak is consistent with a growing body of evidence that the virus can be transmitted through aerosols — particles smaller than 5 micrometers that can float in the air for minutes or longer.

...a study published March 17 in the New England Journal of Medicine found that when the virus was suspended in a mist under laboratory conditions it remained “viable and infectious” for three hours — though researchers have said that time period would probably be no more than a half-hour in real-world conditions.

...it’s possible that the forceful breathing action of singing dispersed viral particles in the church room that were widely inhaled.

...some people happen to be especially good at exhaling fine material, producing 1,000 times more than others.

Amateur singers interested in choral music tend to be older, but the group includes some young adults.

...The youngest of those sickened was 31, but they averaged 67

Die Systemrelevanz lockert sich …


Fußballer werden getestet. Weil systemrelevant? Die Schulen und Kindergärten sollen (wenn auch mit “Abstandsregeln”, dazu gleich noch etwas) wieder aufmachen. Weil “Denkt denn keiner an die Kinder!”) Lehrer, Lehrerinnen, Erzieher, Erzieherinnen werden, im Gegensatz zu Fußballspielern, nicht getestet. Und z.B. im Rhein-Sieg-Kreis überlegt man, ein Abstrichzentrum zu schliessen, weil Abstrichzentren im Rhein-Sieg-Kreis sind nicht ausgelastet. Anscheinend gibt’s neben den Fußballern nicht mehr so viele Systemrelevante.

Mir scheint, die “Systemrelevanz” lockert sich somit langsam auch wieder auf “Normalniveau” zurück … vielleicht sollten alle nochmal zum Abschied leise klatschen?

Apropos Abstandsregeln bei Schülern und Kindern: in Schulbussen sollen nur maximal 15 Schüler einsteigen. Das wird sicherlich gut koordiniert. Zum Beispiel von den Leuten, die auch die Abstände auf den Spielplätzen koordinieren werden. Oder auf Sportplätzen. In Grundschulen findet “Unterricht” an zwei Tagen jeweils für zwei Stunden pro Tag statt, die Kinder werden anschliessend nicht von der OGS betreut. Das entlastet die Eltern wie?

Man könnte noch viel mehr solcher Beispiele aufführen, während die Illusionen von "Nach der Pandemie wird alles besser" wie Seifenblasen aufsteigen und zerplatzen. Währenddessen verstärkt die zweite Pandemie (Dummheit) ihre Wirkung.

P.S. Die Gemeinden, die diverse Lasten und Kontrollen übernehmen sollen, haben inzwischen finanzielle Problem der besonderen Art, wie man am Beispiel der “Haribo-Gemeinde” Grafschaft im Ahrkreis sehen kann: Kommunale Finanzen in der Corona-Krise

Coronavirus: Scientists hail 'groundbreaking' discovery of antibody which prevents infection | Science & Tech News | Sky News

Scientists have discovered an antibody which prevents the coronavirus from infecting human cells in "groundbreaking research" which could lead to the development of new treatments.

Building on research into the SARS coronavirus, scientists from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, as well as the Erasmus Medical Centre and the company Harbour BioMed (HBM), have identified a potential method of neutralising COVID-19.

They discovered that an antibody which prevents the SARS virus from infecting human cells could also block the novel coronavirus from infecting human cells too, according a peer reviewed study published on Monday in the journal Nature Communications.
