  1. Is the US finally waking up to the complete and utter mishandling of this pandemic from the start by the WHO?
     
    I believe there should and will be a complete revamping of this institution when the dust ultimately settles. 
     
    Wb

    I sure hope so!

  2.  
    There are other free video apps available that run on mutiple platforms. Skype, Viber (our favorite), QQ (Chinese progam that works well but don't have a clue about security with it). I know there are other, too.
     
    We've done three way calls between the US/Philippines/Ireland, and Viber worked great.

    Haha! I’m technologically challenged...which is why I use an iPhone! FaceTime works great and the kiddos are all nearby.

  3. Grandchild number 13 on the way.  Don't post photos of my family since it is their likeness not mine. but, a couple of my grandsons look like little hippies ... hair below their shoulders ... and I love it. I let them know when I see them I approve of their long hair. 
     

    No worries. My daughters post the pics of their children all over social media, so I know they don’t mind me posting them here.

  4. Encouragingly NYC is reporting that fewer of its inpatients are requiring intubation. They seem to be curbing the severity of the disease in a general sense. Ironically governor Cuomo has restricted the use of chloroquine drugs to inpatients. 
     
    There is more than one path to defining medical treatment. Fundamentally when urgency matters strict research protocols can be sidestepped as long as it can be done safely. No harm - no foul. Chloroquine is not voodoo. It is a long-standing drug that medicine has used safely for 1/2 century. 
     
    Does it work? Well we do have a gauge - the media. The media is trigger happy, anxious to find and trumpet any story to discredit the federal government. If chloroquine definitely did not work we’d have 4 inch headlines proclaiming its failure. We do not see those. In fact currently what we have is nominal reporting and some of that is actually encouraging.
     
    So if you have covid19, breathing 40 times a minute and still not oxygenating while on 100% oxygen then you decide for yourself whether trialing a safe experimental drug cocktail will save your life. As for myself - i won’t wait that long. We can complete the academic studies when the emergency is over. BTW there are many drugs being used in exactly the same manner as chloroquine. Chloroquine is only controversial be because of politics. It would seem likely that naysayers here would embrace chloroquine if it came to light from a different source. Politics indeed.

    So chloroquine can be used on an out patient basis in New York? [mention]Bosco-d-gama [/mention]

    Very well stated!

  6. In my opinion, anyone and I do mean anyone that abuses this program, or any other program afforded by the government should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Some people are just low life.

  7. The latest French study, which looked at the study the President referred to, says Hydroxychloroquine and antibiotics is of no effect.
     
    "However, a study just published in a French medical journal provides new evidence that hydroxychloroquine does not appear to help the immune system clear the coronavirus from the body. The study comes on the heels of two others – one in France and one in China – that reported some benefits in the combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for COVID-19 patients who didn’t have severe symptoms of the virus."
     
    Science indeed.
     
    Which is why our number one physician/scientist wants to wait for the gold standard, randomized studies with placebo.
     
    The first French study was on people with "mild" symptoms.
     
    The side effects of hydroxychloroquine are potentially deadly, you need to be on an ECG and closely monitored in a hospital. If you are a heart patient you might not be suitable. 
     
    Here.is the latest study.

    Really strange. Rudy said he took a drastic turn for the better when he was given hydroxychloroquine. Coincidence???

    I don’t recall anyone saying it helps the immune system “clear” the virus.

    Or just another play on words?

  8. This is an important topic. I’m unlocking it, hoping I’m doing the right thing.

    Leave politics out. Sad part is that you guys are pretty smart. Use your brains to help. This is not the time for division. We are all in this together, whether you like it or not.

  9. I’m asking nicely, one last time. This thread is for Rudy and his recovery. Take anything else regarding CV19 to the other thread.

    Keep politics out of it.

    Warning points, suspensions and being banned are all in the table for those that don’t follow the Terms of Service.

  10. BTW: this is a thread for Rudy.  I actually recommend the Corona thread for political statements...
     
    Thanks again to the individual that started this thread.  It was a nice thought and I hope it helps Rudy to recover more quickly.
     
    Chris

    Y’all would be wise to follow Chris’s advice. That being said no politics. I don’t want to be forced to
    lock either thread.

    Keep this thread about Rudy and his progress.

  11. Puhleeze stop attempting to equate covid19 to any flu except the 1918 flu. Why? Because those 2 events have one big thing in common - ZERO human immunity to a lethal virus.
     
    During a normal flu season hospitals do not get buried in critically sick peoples. Sure a lot of people get sick but it is spread out spatially and over time. A regular flu season is manageable. Yes influenza kills but covid19 is shown to be 15X more fatal and that’s with the best care possible.
     
    Hopefully covid19 will ONLY kill less than 100,000. That will happen ONLY if America keeps itself shut-in and sequestered for whatever length of time is needed to stifle this bug.

    This! Yes, please.

    Who was the other affected forum member? I recall a passing comment where you mentioned two known cases here, but Rudy is the only that's been on my radar.

    The other affected member was MeLovesKhorns aka Paul Redman and his wife. They were both released from quarantine about a week ago and are back on the front lines of the COVID battle.

  13. Forget the toilet paper, you can always take a shower -- or buy tissue paper. I noticed that yesterday when I was shopping. No TP, but tons of Kleenex. 
     
    I loaded up on important stuff. Coffee and chocolate.



    Haha! It was a joke. We are good on TP!
