NY health officials will collect “convalescent” plasma (liquid part of blood) from recovered #COVID19 patients & inject the #antibody-rich plasma into sick #coronavirus patients.

This approach was used during the 1918 Spanish Flu #pandemic.…
Although convalescent plasma is “old school,” it has a good chance of success.

Convalescent plasma decreased the severity of symptoms & shortened hospital stays for #SARS, and preliminary reports from #China suggests it also works for #coronavirus.😃
#COVID19 convalescent plasma first will be given to critically ill #coronavirus patients. Once proven safe & effective (good chance!), it will likely work best if given BEFORE patients get critically ill. It might also be effective in protecting front-line health care workers.🤗

Gutes Podcast über Herdenimmunität gg #Corona

Jedoch welches Tool würde helfen das von allen Virologen angestrebte Ziel der Grundimmunisierung am schnellsten zu erreichen?

Ein Shutdown evtl von 1 Jahr werden wir schwer meistern.…

...sorry etwas lang 😓 💦 (wird via @threadreaderapp zusammen'gerollt')


🔹Prof. Drosten @c_drosten hat im NDR Info, im sehr interessanten #coronavirus Update, kurz auch das Immunisierungsthema angeschnitten.
🔹Bei denjenigen, die eine Infektion überstanden haben wird der Virus sich nicht mehr replizieren können. Eine Ansteckung und Weitergabe ist dann nicht mehr möglich.

THREAD: ANTIBODY GAME CHANGER TESTS AND DIAGNOSTIC REALITY. Most people don’t understand infectious disease and how ‘tests’ work. Like many things in science they’re not simply black and white things. This thread will explain in simple terms the value of #covid19 tests.
Infectious disease like #COVID19 has four phases: exposure, incubation, disease, resolution. Exposure is when you catch it. With COVID19, it involves coughs, droplets, aerosols and infected surfaces. Incubation is when the virus quietly minds its own business. No symptoms...
... and nothing to detect. Then the virus bursts the banks and floods you with new copies of itself- as many as the stars in the sky. From this point you can start detecting the virus. The most effective way is to look for its genome - a method known as PCR. PCR is best class...

I’ve shifted everything to @Windows 10, the Subsystem for Linux #WSL, @WLinuxApp, a lightweight #zsh package manager #Antibody, and @code via a local X server. Windows stuff syncs via #OneDrive. #Linux stuff syncs via a #dotfiles repo.
I’ve been using WSL off-and-on since it came out, and the pace of improvement is really remarkable. The Windows dev team is seriously hustling to make their platform a good foundation for modern open-source development.
One think I really like is the ease of blowing away and rebuilding the entire Linux side of things. It really pairs well with the dotfiles movement to incrementally improve my use tool chain. I’ve automated the build of my stack so I can rebuild over lunch break.
