Also, fangen wir mal hinten an, Ich werde jetzt nach und nach #Literatur zu den #Luftreinigern twittern, um die Diskussion zu substantivieren.

I'll do that mainly in English, at times in German.

Let's start. (AC-1) Nature News, October 2021.

Of course, this is only a #News article in @Nature. The paper, at that time only a preprint, now appeared here:

In this work, authos state "Here we present
the first data providing evidence for the removal of SARS-CoV-2 and microbial bioaerosols from the air using portable air filters with UV sterilization on a COVID-19 ward."

I think this is true, in the paper actually particles...

H τεχνική #PCR που έγινε γνωστή στο σύνολο του κόσμου λόγω της χρήσης της για την ανίχνευση του #SARSCoV2 , στηρίζεται στο γεγονός ότι το γενετικό υλικό μπορεί με κατάλληλα ένζυμα να αντιγραφεί και σε δοκιμαστικό σωλήνα όπως και στον οργανισμό μας.
H PCR μπορεί να ενισχύσει(πολλαπλασιάσει) και να ανιχνεύσει συγκεκριμένη αλληλουχία γενετικού υλικού. Αποτελεί μια εξαιρετικά ευαίσθητη τεχνική .Η #realtime #RTPCR είναι τεχνική που επιτρέπει τον ποσοτικό προσδιορισμό #mRNA… Image
Στην τεχνική αυτή ακολουθούνται τρία βήματα: (i) της αντίστροφης μεταγραφής (RT) - μετατροπής του RNA σε cDNA, (ii) της ενίσχυσης του cDNA χρησιμοποιώντας την PCR και (iii) της ανίχνευσης και ποσοτικοποίησης των προϊόντων ενίσχυσης σε πραγματικό χρόνο…

#Thread: Since many people in #Odisha & outside have the impression that the state govt has done incredibly well at #covidmanagement, here's something I feel people need to know too before painting a rosy picture on SM. I live in a place that is 34 km away from #Nabarangpur DH
Anxious about my father's health, I tried figuring the nearest RT-PCR test centre, and I was told there's only one centre, i.e., #Nabarangpur DHH and it takes about 5-6 days to get the test results. Why? Because they send the sample to SLN Hospital at #Koraput
Now here's what you need to know- #Odisha govt after one year of slumber, sanctioned ₹20 cr yesterday for #Covid testing labs in 16 districts and #Nabarangpur is one among them. After 1 year of a goddamn #pandemic, my district will finally have a #RTPCRTest lab.

Kerala High Court hears plea challenging Kerala Govt’s recent direction to capping price of RTPCR tests conducted by private labs at Rs 500. Plea moved by private testing labs. Matter before Justice N Nagaresh.

Sr Adv Sreekumar takes Court through earlier orders of govt regarding pricing of RTPCR tests etc.

Court: Mr Sreekumar we don't have the time to hear this in detail

Sreekumar points out that the stakeholders should have been consulted before capping price

This is nothing but a violation of principles of natural justice.. This is totally in violation of the guidelines.. We could have produced much more data... on the value of the materials: Sreekumar

Given the full community spread of #SARS_CoV_2, it is time to stop incessant #RTPCR testing in asymptomatic people, so called "healthy sick" , and save resources. Start early Rx with ivermectin+budesonide+Zn+ chicken soup+kadha or whatever in mild to moderate #Covid_19 cases. 1/n
And, reserve #ICUs for serious #Covid patients only. Start triage and stop the use of #Remdesivir and #convalescentplasma therapy ASAP, as it doesn't help save lives. Don't hospitalize maniacs hyperventilating due to fear in the Covid ward and shift them to counseling ... 2/n
.. for managing hyper active state of mind & deactivate their social media accounts + WhatsApp. Public health intervention with #VitaminD 60k once week for 4 weeks starting now and not while patient is sick with #Covid By then it will not help to build adequate VitD reserve..3/n

The #COVIDSecondWave is real .
Being prepared helps a little.

As someone who is recovering from Covid, sharing some basic points on #COVID19 .

Pls share if useful . 😇🙏

(P.S - I have cross verified with doctors prior to posting this in public domain )

If any symptoms, get tested (RT- PCR) IMMEDIATELY along with ENTIRE family.

DON'T WAIT for 2-3 days.
Labs are already backed up !

Begin wearing masks & Social Distancing EVEN INSIDE Homes.


The SOONER the treatment begins, the BETTER it shall be.

Rapid Antigen Test ( RAT) is a poor substitute for RTPCR.
Preferably, get #RTPCR Test done .

RAT has a high false negative rate.

Patients can be negative initially yet HAVE COVID. Accordingly more tests are advised.

NOTE :EARLY & CORRECT diagnosis is the key .

Le preprint de notre analyse des #Ct des tests #RTPCR de #SARSCoV2, en partenariat avec la Société Française de Microbiologie et plus de 20 laboratoires de virologie français est maintenant en ligne. **NON RELU PAR LES PAIRS**…
Nous y analysons des valeurs quantitatives de millions de tests #RTPCR effectués en France en 2020 : les Ct, ou cycles de doublement.… (doc très clair en anglais)… (doc en français)

Il y a eu un débat sur ces Ct et l'opportunité de les communiquer aux patients.

Primo, cela dépend de l'échantillon. Secundo, pour les #coronavirus, il est risqué de voir dans le nombre de copies d'ARN une charge virale.

Es gibt sie noch, die guten aufrichtigen Richter:

Die 3. Strafkammer des Berufungsgerichts von Lissabon urteilt, daß es rechtswidrig ist, Menschen wegen eines #PCRtest Ergebnisses in #Quarantäne zu nehmen, da der Test ungeeignet sei, eine Infektion zu belegen. Image
1. Der #PCRtest sei lediglich eine Methode einer Hilfsdiagnose, aber nur Ärzte können wirkliche Diagnosen stellen. Schon daran fehlt es.

2. #Quarantaene oder #Isolation ohne ärztliche Bewertung und Diagnose stellt eine rechtswidrige 'Inhaftierung dar.
