    You gonna trust what a plastic surgeon says about infectious disease diagnosis and epidemiology? Good luck to you.....

    I agree that's why I highlighted this, but this was a major theme being presented in late Feb/early March

    Very good post. If people were dying at the rates they are in Italy and Spain, yes, there would be mass panic and disorder. The messaging has been problematic, 2 in particular, which I believe was put out there to prevent mass social panic and chaos, but have created problems in epidemiological and disease control aspects: - Coronavirus is a mild illness in most people, especially the younger people. - Its mainly/only the elderly, or those with underlying disease, who are suffering serious complications or dying

    yeah its scary. I work in a major public hospital, the precautions that are ramping up are unseen before, and we are being told to expect that "the worst is yet to come"

    I honestly cant see it happening. Unless the virus is completely erdaticated, or the infectious state of every single person is known, or a vaccine is developed, relaxing restrictions will only result in a take off of infection rates again.

    Trump can make all the political statements and chastisements he wants but that can not and will not change the behaviour of microorganisms, infectious disease, and epidemiology, which has been proven in the past with other infectious diseases over and over and over. This is actually a reasonably well written and factual article for a media article and not a medical journal article https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2020/03/17/why-exponential-growth-is-so-scary-for-the-covid-19-coronavirus/#7eab9e174e9b

    Azithromycin, commonly in the form of roxithromycin is used to treat bacterial respiratory infections or atypical pneumonia caused by organisms such as Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae. It has no antiviral action. It maybe of use in treating secondary bacterial pneumonia from viral respiratory illness such as influenzae, but one should be very sceptical it having efficacy in the treatment of primary coronavirus infection. A lot of medical misinformation is circulated on the net and in social media. Recently, here, there were people madly rushing out and bulk buying Ventolin because of their belief that it woul prevent coronavirus infection and mortality, leaving desperately depleted stock for the people who actually needed it such as asthma sufferers. There is no evidence this usage has any success.

    Its too early to be confident in determining the mortality rate, which appears to be roughly 2-3% in western population demographics, and is difficult to compare with influenza, since the denominator (the number of sero positive cases) is also difficult to determine, mostly due to testing often not being performed on those with "the flu" but certainly, the panic is spread by a current absence of anti viral therapy (like Tamiflu for influenza) and a current absence of a suitable vaccine to prevent infection

    Get Gov'ts around the world to stop the hoarding. Pressure companies like Ebay with microscopic tax audits if they continue to allow leeching profiteers to sell hoarded items on their sites e.g. people selling single one roll of toilet paper for $4-5 a roll, + $10-15 delivery. Disgraceful.

    make sure you get toilet paper. Where I live the shelves have been empty for two weeks because of panic buying
  15. Can he choose to sign for less if there is a 2nd higher offer? i.e. He might actually see something exciting about this group and want to be a part of it, particularly since he seems to fot well, and get on well with them
