Increasing the survival rate of Coronavirus patients in New York.

From an ICU nurse working with coronavirus patients in a major hospital, I learned that hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin are administered only when the patient's lungs are deteriorating badly and a ventilator is required.  They administer the drugs just before intubation with the ventilator.  Suggestion:  Administer the drugs much sooner, if possible, before the patient's lungs/immune response is badly deteriorated.  Scientifically, the microbes most likely grow asymptotically in the body, if unchecked.  Timing is most likely key for any possibility of success for defeating the growth of the virus.
Secondly, today we learned that in the State of News York, pharmacies are not allowed to fill prescriptions for the drugs, that only hospital patients can get the drugs.  Eliminate that law, so patients and physicians in New York can can get access to the drugs, and have them administered right in the Doctor's office.  It was also reported today that New York does have access to millions of doses of the hydroxychloroquine.
Thirdly, work towards establishing a successful regimen of dosage and optimal time for administering the drug.
Obviously in all  this, patients with serious lung problems or a compromised immune system, who contract the disease will be at much greater risk, and may be beyond the help of any drug.

Well Cancer kills more people than the Flu so checkmate atheist. You can worry about more than one thing at a time. Does the media make it worse? Sure, but what's even worse is people being uninformed and listening crazy Facebook ****. Legit media is framing this realistically in the effects its having on the people and the economy. Facebook media is trying to tell you the pope has Corona & to not use Antibacterial soap to get people to click their links and give them ad revenue.

Sometimes the media is not the boogeyman and it's actually just that fact that this world is full of VERY stupid and frightened people.

I ask again, why are you on a theatre message board but never engage the theatre? Is it because you use your other account for that and this just your window to allow you to post conservative talking points handed down from Dear Leader?

My question to you is why would you respond to post from this person if you are wary of their motives?

Because this place it made to respond to posts and frankly if people didn't respond to stupid or made in bad faith posts this place would not be interesting... there's a reason the OT board moves at such a sluggish pace these days...

As a former researcher in one of the largest hospitals in the USA, I worked on programs to stop infectious diseases. Infectious diseases are very dangerous as we know.  Any off-topic forum that can inform the public as to the health aspects and dangers of infectious diseases is important.  The flu can be and is dangerous.  We do need better vaccines.  I am hopeful that this year's flu contagion is minimized as much as possible.

There are better places for you to take your troll routine. Seems like you'd get more out of trolling on Twitter for example, than an off topic message board with little traffic.

How old are you that you could have been a former researcher at a large hospital as well as being involved in 7 private sector businesses and also several start ups as you purported in the thread where you gave Bezos a rim job? Have you hit your triple digits yet? Oh... you haven't done any of this... you're just a middle aged conservative sad boy...

If you actually had been involved in a hospital during something like this you'd know that they're working around the clock to formulate plans for when this does eventually hit their hospital like it very likely will. I, actually, WORK for Critical Care & Pulmonary doctors unlike whatever fantasy you've concocted to support your lasted narrative.

And what else have you been, a cowboy, an astronaut, a big league baseball player? A high level researcher who was so successful, he's now peddling his products on Amazon where anyone can sell anything cause no legit retail stores would bother with him. The entire country of Italy is under quarantine now. AN ENTIRE COUNTRY. Has the flu ever done that? You think they did that cause of the news media? This is just another idiotic right wing talking point cause they're worried the stock market downturn will hurt Trump's re-election. Trump's comments that the coronavirus will just wash away in April like magic and people with the virus should still go to work can result in people dying. This isn't a game. You're a very bad and obvious troll. Go back to troll school and work on your act.

Wait, Dan. You worked in infectious disease at a research hospital and you are unable to say in your sleep WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT COVID when compared to the flu? Come on.

 

First off, Covid is proving deadlier than influenza, but more importantly, there are FLU VACCINES. Class, can anybody tell Dan what even a partially effective influenza vaccine does to transmission rates? It rhymes with "seduces" so all together now:

The current flu vaccines don't protect you from all of the strains of influenza that are out there.  Even though I received a flu shot in October 2019, I got a viral infection (strain of the flu) that took me out for almost three weeks in January.   I lost 15 pounds during the process. I was too weak to make myself anything to eat and really felt so bad that I didn't want to eat.

I am "elderly" and last week I flew to Florida to visit my in-laws in Tampa. We went to a music festival on the waterfront and there were plenty of people there enjoying themselves. I went to NY Yankee Spring Training game which had over 10,000 people in attendance. One day, we drove to Orlando and spent the day at Disneyworld which Lord only knows the amount of people in the park - lol. Obviously, I am fine so my advice is don't live life being scared. Do the right things like washing your hands properly and the odd are quite low you will have problem.

1. How are they "promoting" it?   

2.  NO ONE is telling citizens tto panic.

3.  You do realize we are (likely) in the beginning of this not the end.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

For those who are interested in a non-sugar-coated look at what's going on, and more importantly, what we can all do to maximize our prevention steps and to think about those around us, I highly recommend this regularly revised document.

I never thought I'd say something like this, I wouldn't go to CDC for up-to-the-minute guidance, because they are being filtered and approved by Trump, and he doesn't understand public health at all.

I was hoping for a much catchier name.  Like the "Hi-Knee" flu.  That was a much funner flu than this one.

I assume this has been addressed but this OP is ridiculous. Look at the mortality rate of Flu vs Covid-19. If this continues to spread globally it will kill hundreds of millions of people. It is a public health crisis that needs extreme measures to be contained.

Coronavirus, 25 deaths, mostly in the state of Washington at a retirement home, 500 contracted the disease nationwide. They reported today that over 350,000 seniors in retirement homes have died of infectious diseases this year. Those are the stats. Currently, the flu is 400 times more dangerous than corona, using the above numbers. If anything, we need better vaccines for the flu.

Unbelievable: The CDC reported on March 8, 2020, 45 million cases of the flu this season, 300,000 hospitalizations, and 46,000 deaths. Shocking! Get your flu shot! The news business is way off the mark. Where are they on this?

Shame on you, Bronxdan. This poster should be removed for constant trolling and misinformation and discourse throughout this board. Seriously mods, I can't take you seriously until a poster like this is removed. Blatant propaganda, we're in a global pandemic and this poster is trying to deny it. Wild times I guess

Statistics show that even in cases where the strain of vaccine is not correct, the severity of cases in those who get the vaccine versus those that don't is lower. That doesn't account for every person's case, but on average it's true. You are better off getting the flu shot than rolling the dice and not.
