Plus, if only getting ready to fight Covid was so easy. Tie on a surgical mask, and you're ready to go!

I am seeing younger patients decompensating and getting put onto vents. Not many, and the ones I have seen have significant other issues (renal failure, HIV, lung problems...).

I don't know if allergies would impact your risk.

Looks promising. Chloroquine was three weeks ago and we aren't hearing much.
Just wondered if folks were discussing it.
Stay safe young man.

Looks promising.
Tocilizumab (Actemra) does look promising. The drug is an immunosuppressant used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and seems to interfere with the inflammatory immune system response that kills many COVID-19 patients.

I always thought it was "are you for par?" like, do you support the idea of getting par? I'm more of a supporter of getting a birdie but I can also see the merits of par.

I thought you and "bogeynomore" were supporting each others screen names. Thanks for ruining my vision! haha

Question. Say a nurse tests positive for anti-bodies
and goes back to work. She gets infected but doesn't get sick as she is immune. Could she be infecting others in the meantime?
She breathes in the virus in one room and breathes it out in the next.

Interesting news. Our system is beginning a several year immunology testing program. I think it is one of the first in the nation and the largest to date.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...301039104.html

I have only worked in a 100% COVID positive area. But, I am guessing that most hospital systems have isolation protocols in place. If you get sick, you are off for a pre described set of days after the onset of symptoms or positive test.

A positive antibody test only demonstrates that your immune system has been activated against the virus. Really an indication of exposure. Previous virus study tells us, once you test antibody positive, you should not get the virus again. But, there are currently reports from Korea that you can get reinfected. Also, virus have the ability to mutate, so your immune response could become ineffective.

I am kind of assuming nurses are wearing some kind of mask for all patient care, at this time. I will ask around to see if I can find a better answer.
