#Covid19 cases 🤧 are on the rise and we have been getting a lot of questions about #covid19 which is totally understandable. We will try to answer a few of them in this thread #gp #portmarnock 1/n 👍
If you think you have #Covid19 (ANY of #cough, #breathlessness, #fever, lack of #smell or #taste) CALL YOUR GP 👩‍🦰🧑‍🦱 and we we can arrange a Covid swab for you if needed 2/n
If you are a close contact of a confirmed Covid 🦠 case you need to isolate for 14 DAYS from your contact with the person.

Public health will call you & arrange a test for you. GPs DO NOT arrange these #Covid19 tests as follow up swabbing, contact tracing etc may be needed 3/n

1/ This is a letter from a math teacher in my District to our School Board. Shared with permission.

Please read and retweet:
My name is Courtney and I am a high school #math #teacher.

In March, I contracted, battled and survived #COVIDー19.

2/ I am an active and healthy 26-year-old. The type of person people say “shouldn’t be stressed” about this virus, much like our students. COVID-19 is a sickness unlike any I have ever endured. The weakness my body felt was worse than any flu, cold or stomach virus I’ve ever had.
3/ My symptoms started slowly, a slight cough, that sent chills down my spine in fear that I had contracted the virus. I immediately quarantined. That evening I started having chest pains similar to heartburn, and the next morning I awoke with a #fever.

This is my entry for #coviddiary. I'm bad at remembering dates. But it all started on 23rd May when my husband (a doctor) contracted #covid from a patient. He had #bodyache not relieved by any medicine, #breathlessness on exertion, undocumented #fever....
....#redspot on 3rd toe of right foot, #burningsensation in soles. He tested positive for covid. All folks at home, got tested including myself. Two more were positive.
We were at my mom's place for holidays. But then all positives were #isolated at our house. I was negative but being a doctor myself, I went too. Another member who was negative but had fever and cough, went along.

#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

2/23 Fever = hypothalamic thermostat reset to a ⬆️ temp in response to infection. It’s an adaptive biological response to pathogen invasion that assists w/ immunological control of infections. Most texts refer to fever as temp >38 C. See JAMA paper also:
3/23 Fever in returning travelers is common in our population due to high mobility & travel proclivities. We collectively log millions of miles of air and land transit annually to countries that have very different endemicity profiles for infectious diseases compared to 🇨🇦 or 🇺🇸

1/15 #Fever #tweetorial

Parents and paediatricians alike are obsessed with fever

We've all got fever fever 🔥 But it is SO misunderstood

Let's take a look at what fever actually is, and finish off with some myth busting!

#FOAMPed #FOAMed #IDTwitter #PedsICU #PedsID
Fever (pyrexia) is an elevated core body temperature as part of a physiological response to infection controlled by the hypothalamus

This is opposed to hyperthermia, a pathological elevated temperature

This is important, as your body is IN CONTROL. Fever happens on purpose
What temperature counts as a fever?

There's no strict definition (there's no really good data on what a "normal" temperature is...), but an arbitrary cut of off 38C is often used.

Its better taken in context; 37.8C following temps >38.5C is probably still a fever.

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.
