🔆Crónica de una victoria “atípica”

Ella es mi nonna, se las presento. La mujer más increíble que conozco.
Le dieron su alta médica después de derrotar a este terrible virus.
Tiene 99 años y está historia #Covid
Todo empezó con una visita al médico para tratar un tumor de piel en la nariz.
Fue un miércoles, fuimos con todas las precauciones posibles.Esto fue por allá del 18 de marzo
4 días después de la nada,fiebre ligera y tos.Pensamos que podía ser una infección urinaria ¿pero la tos?
⛔️Al día siguiente, el lunes 23 mucha tos y mucha fiebre. La llevamos con mucha angustia a consulta con un excelente Dr. Neumologo
Los rayos x mostraban una neumonía complicada, con infiltraciones bien definidas.
TODOS los síntomas clínicos coinciden con #SARSCoV2 #Covid19

In the @CNN timeline, ▪@WHO noted a "pneumonia cluster" of unknown cause on Dec 31, 2019
▪Jan 7: China confirms identification of #novelcoronavirus
▪Jan 14: @WHO press briefing signals human-to-human transmission
▪Jan 21: 1st confirmed case in WA state
Mid-January is when @ewarren puts out her plan for #coronavirus, as was reported by Reuters, AP and CNN. No other candidate had a plan.
▪On Jan 29 Biden published an op-ed about the virus.
▪Jan 30 @NEJM publishes a letter on asymptomatic transmission.
▪In the first week of February the @CDCgov announced human-to-human transmission.
▪THIS was the point at which there needed to be massive mitigation efforts--as were urged by Drs. Fauci and Birx. But because there were so few cases, Trump decided it would "wash over" US.

Quien no pueda permanecer en su casa y tenga que salir DEBE DE USAR CUBREBOCAS!!!! Úsenlo!!

Hay consenso mundial, que el principal riesgo del #COVID19 #SARSCoV2 es la transmisión entre asintomáticos
el principio aceptado globalmente es que la gente haga cuarentena en casa ante el altísimo riesgo de ser portadores asintomáticos del #CoronaVirus
Ante esa circunstancia uno de los métodos más efectivos para quien tiene que salir a la calle es evitar la diseminación de microgotas
De una enfermedad en la q se sabe poco, y que aún es muy pronto para tener evidencia científica irrefutable sobre tratamientos y mecanismos de prevención, la experiencia empírica internacional es el mejor soporte.
Los #cubrebocas #facemask #barbijo #tapabocas son INDISPENSABLES

My husband and I have experienced a traumatizing event in the past 24 hours #covid #personalstory #threadstorytime
A few days ago, we made arrangements with my husband’s sister to have their travelling mom live with us for a bit during the quarantine period immediately after her arrival. My mother in law “officially” lived with my sister in law. And the latter has an immunocompromised child.
My MIL left the country to go to France in mid January this year. She usually arranges this type of trip yearly to be with her retired sisters who live there. This year they planned to go to a pacific island with a group in early March.

THREAD (1/n)👇👇👇

Is it reasonable to call #coronavirus the “Chinese virus” or "Wuhan virus"?

Chinese Americans & refugees I queried are saying yes. But others are saying it's racist.

It originated in #China. Why is African swine fever virus named so?

But let's go deeper…
(2/n) After having massively mishandled #coronavirus in #China & hiding it for at least a month & a half, the Chinese communist party has gone into overdrive with pro-#CCP and anti-American propaganda.

Here's our own @EpochTimes thread documenting this:
(3/n) According to the #CCP, it's a savior both internally and globally. In reality, the CCP's #coronavirus statistics are highly suspect; it's questionable has actually been contained; draconian measures were taken internally; & the #CCP's secrecy has cost thousands of lives.

#NovelCoronavirus to Survive Indian Summer, Reappear After: Researchers…

📸: (Tejal Pandey/TOI, BCCL, Mumbai)
Despite many hoping that the deadly novel #coronavirus disease #COVID19 would fade away as the summer sets in, it has continued to spread across the globe in March.
Now, researchers involved in the study of the virus suggest that it is likely to survive the summer in India, and reemerge after mercury levels fall.

Presscon @KemenkesRI sore ini tidak menjawab:

Mengapa pasien yg menurut Info Depkes baru masuk Bali 4 hari, artinya sdh terkena Corona, koq di Bandara bisa diterima masuk? Bagaimana protokol pemeriksaan WNA di bandara dijalankan efektif?
Kmatian krn #Covid19 di semua ngr mayoritas mnimpa pasien usia lanjut, yg umumnya sdh pny pnyakit lain. Krn itu BUKAN pnyakit lain pasien yg jd fokus presscon @KemenkesRI utk tenangkan masy, tp sjauh mana protokoler pncegahn efektif di daerah2, terutama kedatangan WNA di bandara.
Berulang2 mjelaskn kematian pasien no.25 krn pny pnyakit lain sm spt jelaskn org diabet mati kena serangan jantung. Shrsnnya logika dibalik, @KemenkesRI justru smpaikan bhw corona sgt bbahaya bg org usia lanjut, lbh beresiko kematian. Krn itu mrk djadikn prioritas dlm pencegahan.

Kerala govt will let the largest gathering of women in the world take place tomorrow in the midst of what could be a pandemic. The Attukal Pongala is a critical religious & cultural phenomenon. However, it poses a risk to participants this year...…
It is not that the Kerala govt does not know this. Kerala is among the few success stories so far of the #NovelCoronavirus/#COVIDー19 outbreak, having cured its first 3 patients on the back of a robust health system....…
...An outbreak would be disastrous for Kerala, the state whose population density is comparable to Palestine's. If Kerala were a country, it would be the 13th most dense in the world....

Chinese National Health Commission has changed their definition of #WuhanCoronavirus "confirmed case" in their latest guidelines dated 7/2. Patients tested positive for the virus but have no symptoms will no longer be regarded as confirmed. This inevitably will lower the numbers.
The new rule has triggered provinces to find cases that can be deducted from the total no. of confirmed cases. Heilongjiang has axed 13 cases from their tally stating the new definition. #Hubei has deducted 87 cases today, but authorities did not explain why.
Over 100 cases have been deducted over the past 2 days. The concerning problem is that authorities do not disclose the no. of symptom-less infected patients after they count them separately. There will be no way of knowing the exact magnitude of the outbreak.

New pre-print by myself & @mandl:

Early basic reproduction number estimates for #nCoV2019 range from 2.0 to 3.3 (based off of publicly reported confirmed cases through 1/22/20 & subject to change) […].

Short explainer & several caveats in the thread below.
@mandl The basic reproduction number (R_0) is a measure of transmissibility that aims to describe the average number of people a new case *in a fully susceptible population* will infect. (Most of the time, this number isn’t actualized thanks to interventions as simple as hand-washing.)
@mandl Today, the @WHO reported their own estimates (though I haven't seen the methods yet), which were R_0 = 1.4 to 2.5. Their estimates are within the bounds of those we obtained on 1/18/20 (as shown in Panel B of the figure above); our estimates skew slightly higher by 1/22/20.
