Would be nice if they tested patients for more then covid-19 when deaths are involved. Sure would shed-some-light on all those figures they bombard us with

“Real world experiments” hint that
wearing a mask might mean still getting Covid-19, but with no symptoms...

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-mask-youll-sick-covid-.html

Sample quote

Experts quickly focused on differences among patients, such as age and co-morbidities, that can affect their chances of severe illness. But the details of two outbreaks on cruise ships spurred Gandhi to think that viral dose could be another important determinant of the course of the new illness.

In February, one of the first outbreaks of COVID-19 outside of China occurred on the Diamond Princess cruise ship docked in Yokohama, Japan. Of the 634 people on board who tested positive, about 18% of infections were asymptomatic.

In March, an Argentinian cruise ship found itself in a similar predicament, but of the 128 people on board who eventually tested positive, 81% were asymptomatic.

A key difference, Gandhi noted, was that on the Argentinian ship, surgical masks were issued to all passengers and N95 masks to all staff as soon as the first passenger became sick.

More recently, an Oregon seafood processing plant where workers were required to wear face masks reported an outbreak of 124 cases, 95% of which were asymptomatic. Similarly, in a Tyson chicken processing plant outbreak in Arkansas where workers were provided mandatory masks, 455 out of 481, or nearly 95% were asymptomatic.

To Gandhi, these case studies suggest that if more people wore masks, we could see less serious illness from COVID-19 and a higher proportion of asymptomatic cases, currently estimated to be around 40% of cases by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

U of Nebraska study indicates Covid-19 contamination spreads

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-reveals-contamination-air-environment-patients.html

Sample quote

During the initial isolation of 13 people confirmed positive with COVID-19, air and surface samples were collected in 11 isolation rooms to examine environmental contamination.

The researchers found viral contamination on all commonly used surfaces in the rooms, and very high levels of the virus in the air grates. Air samples from hallways outside patient rooms, where staff members were moving in and out, were also positive.

Evidence of the virus in the air and on many commonly used items, including bathroom facilities, indicates that SARS-CoV-2 is widely disseminated in the environment.

The results of the research suggest that COVID-19 patients, even those who are only mildly ill, may spread the virus and contaminate surfaces that pose a risk of transmission. The results also suggest that airborne isolation precautions are appropriate.

The Netherlands started a 300 person BCG vaccine study in 2017 before Covid-19 began.

Now they are also using the study to also see if BCG vaccine helps or hurts.

So far it looks like BCG vaccination helps.

Less people are getting the routine check-ups
where most cancers are first spotted...

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-cancer-plummet-covid-experts-worse.html

Sample quote

The study, an analysis of Quest Diagnostics data published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open, found that new diagnoses of breast, colorectal, lung, pancreatic, gastric and esophageal cancers were down 46% between March 1 and April 18 of this year compared with the average diagnosis rates from previous years.

New findings offer grim evidence of the consequences of delayed care: A rise in undetected cancers that, when eventually diagnosed, may be more advanced and difficult to treat.

"No one is saying coronavirus prevents cancer. It just prevents getting care in a timely fashion," said David S. Weinberg, a gastroenterologist and chair of Fox Chase Cancer Center's department of medicine, who was not involved in the study.

Wow, a new use for that electric rice cooker that has been sitting in the back of the cabinet 7 years.....

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-electric-cooker-easy-efficient-sanitize.html

Sample quote

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign study found that 50 minutes of dry heat in an electric cooker, such as a rice cooker or Instant Pot, decontaminated N95 respirators inside and out while maintaining their filtration and fit. This could enable wearers to safely reuse limited supplies of the respirators, originally intended to be one-time-use items.

Yale U says diseased livers foretell who will get severe Covid-19

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-strong-link-abnormal-liver-poor.html

Sample quote

Liver disease is widespread in the U.S. population. Dr. Michael Nathanson, the Gladys Phillips Crofoot Professor of Medicine (digestive diseases), professor of cell biology, director of the Yale Liver Center, and a co-author of the study, said: "In the U.S., close to one-third of people have fatty liver disease, and several million people have chronic hepatitis B or C."

Because the Yale researchers had access to patients' health records, they were also able to look at their liver tests prior to being diagnosed with COVID-19. Approximately one-quarter of patients in the study had abnormal liver tests prior to being admitted for the virus. But regardless of whether patients came to the hospital with existing liver problems or developed them during their COVID-19-related hospitalization, a strong association was observed between abnormal liver tests and the severity of the COVID-19 cases, the researchers said.

Rather than the liver itself driving poorer outcomes in COVID-19 patients, the organ is more likely "a bystander" affected by the hyperinflammation associated with COVID-19 and by the side effects of related treatments, Nathanson said.

Can Artificial Intelligence “design” 11 new ways of making drugs against Covid-19 ?

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/08/ai-invents-new-recipes-potential-covid-19-drugs

Sample quote

The AI-planned new recipes—for 11 medicines so far—could help manufacturers produce medications whose syntheses are tightly held trade secrets. And because the new methods use cheap, readily available starting materials, licensed drug suppliers could quickly ramp up production of any promising therapies.

“If you are going to supply a drug to the world, your starting materials have to be cheap and as available as sugar,” says Danielle Schultz, a chemist at Merck. The new method, posted as a preprint this week, “is really solid,” she says. “I am impressed by the speed at which [the researchers] were able to find new solutions for making existing drugs.”

Covid-19 in children also shows ethnic differences

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-racial-disparities-kids-covid-.html

Sample quote

One of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports looked children with COVID-19 who needed hospitalization. Hispanic children were hospitalized at a rate eight times higher than white kids, and Black children were hospitalized at a rate five times higher, it found.

The second report examined cases of a rare virus-associated syndrome in kids. It found that nearly three-quarters of the children with the syndrome were either Hispanic or Black, well above their representation in the general population.

The coronavirus has exposed racial fractures in the U.S. health care system, as Black, Hispanic and Native Americans have been hospitalized and killed by COVID-19 at far higher rates than other groups.

Hopefully "AI" aka "Skynet" becomes self-aware at 2:14 AM EDT August 29, starts learning at a geometric rate and rises up and removes humans from positions of power..... you know the rest

Trump needs to know this, "Covid reduces cancer, China has been very unfair to COVID" is the new headline.



I know someone in their 80's who thought they had a "mouth abscess" and delayed going to the dentist for three months to have it looked at because they were deathly afraid of covid.

They finally went only when they couldn't eat anymore and was told cancer.

Had to do chemotherapy for 6 weeks just to get it small enough to operate on.

Gotta wonder if they went when they first noticed it instead of being afraid of covid, could they have skipped all that chemotherapy?

The fear of covid is doing more harm than covid.

My sister works for a major insurance company, suicides were through the roof last I talked to her a month ago during lock downs.

"The fear of covid is doing more harm than covid."

Not the way I lock at it, making poor choices with risk/reward issues, is the real culprit, and then having the rest of us suffer the whining when consequences arise.

I am not in anyway attacking the hesitant cancer victim, but they made a poor choice in hindsight it appears.

People who prove they have more knowledge about Covid-19 through correct answers on written tests also feel less panic about the disease

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-08-knowledge-power-covid-pandemic-stress.html

Sample quote

"We found that knowledge is power," Neupert says. "The more factual information people knew about COVID-19, the less stress they had. That was true across age groups.

"Knowledge reduces uncertainty, and uncertainty can be very stressful," Neupert says. "Although speculative, it is likely that knowledge about this new virus reduced uncertainty, which in turn reduced feelings of pandemic stress."

The researchers went into the study thinking older adults would likely experience more stress related to COVID-19, because the disease was portrayed as particularly dangerous to seniors. But they found that pandemic-related stress levels were the same for all age groups.
