Ellis?

It's on the East River, off of Riker's Island, there were hospitals on it. If you were positive for small pox, TB  or other communicable disease you were sent to the Island where you either recovered, or died. 

 

She was locked up for two years while she fought for her release. A new health official was appointed, advocated for her release, got her agree never to cook for others again, got her a job in laundry, and after she was released she changed her name, starting cooking again, got another 20 or so severely ill, including killing two or so people.

 

She was returned to the island/"hospital" where she remained for the rest of her life.

I volunteered at my wife's facility to help with mass inoculations:

 

109,000 signed up for 1A and 1B (72 and above) they initially got 6,000 this week, and they have 8,000 doses next next week.

 

Start at Noon, go till 8 or they run out.

 

Appointments on line, all automated.

FDA gives approval for syringes to extract an extra dose from vials of Covid-19 vaccine

Low dead-volume syringes and/or needles can be used to extract six doses from a single vial. If standard syringes and needles are used, there may not be sufficient volume to extract a sixth dose from a single vial."

Quebec researchers say they have found an effective drug to fight COVID-19

Dr. Jean-Claude Tardif, who led the study, this is a "major scientific discovery," he said. Colchicine is the first "effective oral drug to treat out-of-hospital patients."

 

The ColCorona study involved 4,159 patients whose diagnosis of COVID-19 had been confirmed by a nasopharyngeal test (PCR).

Proceed cautiously. Everyone wants to find some optimism in fighting covid19 but it had better be a LOT more than smoke and mirrors before you go proclaiming success. So far none of the singular drugs have met the magic bullet definition. Don’t get me wrong. I am extremely pleased to see the efforts undertaken to find the real cure. But leave the klaxon alone until you are certain it merits ‘klaxon’ level enthusiasm.

COLCORONA was coordinated by the Montreal Heart Institute’s Montreal Health Innovations Coordinating Center (MHICC), and funded by the Government of Quebec, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), Montreal philanthropist Sophie Desmarais, and the COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator, an initiative launched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Wellcome and Mastercard. CGI, Dacima and Pharmascience of Montreal were also collaborators in the trial.

Greece Approves Drug Colchicine in the Fight Against Covid

On Sunday, Greece approved colchicine, an inexpensive medicine for heart diseases, to be included in the protocol of oral treatments for patients with Covid-19.

The committee of experts of the health ministry gave the “green light” after the positive results of a large Canadian study in which Greece participated.

Kudos to the systems intent on confirming the application, or disproving the application. We all witnessed the follies of wishful hoping when it comes to real medicine. Colchicine is nasty stuff and must be administered properly. Looking forward to hearing more about this and other promising approaches. As poorly as the vaccinations are going it could well be that new definitive treatments will eclipse their purpose. If we find that we can easily cure or treat covid19 there’s less need to attempt to prevent infections.

are you referring to treat & street the patients?  I guess an ER would still be overwhelmed; but not the ICU. what would drive such a decision ... the severity of the illness or the sheer number of infected? both can present problems for a hospital.

To be more specific. A treatment would be something simply administered that would mitigate the progression of the disease. You’d get sick but nowhere near as seriously ill as we see now. It is like finding the Achilles heel for the pathogen. We do this with tuberculosis now. We could vaccinate for tuberculosis and it would work. It would cost a lot and (in this instance) it will mask skin testing for the disease. So instead of vaccinating for tuberculosis we diagnose active cases and treat the disease. For now we can cure tuberculosis. If we did the same for covid19 then you have a ‘bingo’ moment.
