Over the past week I’ve been getting so many calls from friends all over asking me to diagnose if they are #COVID infected. Honestly I’m no doctor but just an early test mule on the virus. My Q&A typically ranges as follows. I hope it helps some of you from needless paranoia.
1/n First thing to iron out is the difference between #regularflu Vs #COVIDflu. I’ve done some research and found this helpful table for you guys. 90% of you have just a regular flu owing to seasonal changes. Don’t panic ! However if you’re in the 10% read on.
2/n Assuming all your symptoms are #COVID in nature immediately #homequarantine in a separate room. Testing is hard to get by in #MaharashtraBachao #Delhi so don’t bother waiting for your turn. Begin treatment for novel Corona while taking care of not infecting others around

#COVID19NIGERIA We have all heard about how the @NCDCgov toll free number has been inundated with phone calls. So much so that it is difficult for them to attend to priority cases. Let's #TakeResponsibility for our #COVID19 response by cooperating with the authorities. 1/n
#COVID19NIGERIA We now have more people who were exposed to newly identified #COVID19 cases. If you fall in this category, your first action is to please try to STAY CALM. Your next one should NOT BE to call @NCDCgov BUT TO #selfIsolate. This is how to #selfisolate👇🏾. 2/n
#COVID19NIGERIA If you traveled to #Nigeria in the last 2 weeks from a country with widespread #COVID19 including transiting there for >24 hours, the FIRST STEP is to #selfisolate. The same applies if you have been exposed to a confirmed #COVID19 case. #TakeResponsibility 3/n

Thread. Medical Hysteria and #InternationalWomensDay

In 1882, Anna O is considered 'patient zero' for the diagnosis of "Hysteria"

#Hysteria was originally a diagnosis only given to women

Anna O fell ill in 1880 after her father died, possibly of Tuberculosis
2. Her symptoms: severe 'nervous' #cough, paralysis, numbness, vision/hearing/speech disturbances, hallucinations, #cognitive difficulties

She was diagnosed with "Hysteria" by Breuer and Freud in ~1882

#InternationalWomensDay
3. Breuer claimed that he cured Anna O of #Hysteria using 'talking out' therapy (a very early forerunner to #psychotherapy)

His claim was false
