Among the 3 categories of COVID patients (severe, moderate ,mild), plasma therapy is suggested for patients who have been moderately infected.Patients with mild condition often recover easily themselves, whereas the chances of recovery in a severely-infected patient are slim.
When one contracts an infection, especially a viral infection, their recovery depends on the production of antibodies to fight the antigen ( which in the current case, is COVID-19). These antibodies are present in the recovered person’s blood for a few weeks aftr recovery.

I’m scared. I’m afraid. I’m concerned. I and my family are now in isolation. My daughters school has an outbreak and she woke up with symptoms yesterday. I kept her home and immediately called #AbHealth to book tests for us all.
But I’m scared. Scared for my children, scared for my husband. Scared and afraid. I’m told that since it’s just my daughter that’s exhibiting symptoms..the rest of my family can still go on with our normal lives. We can still go out into the community and still go out in public.
That makes me angry! 😡 I am doing what’s right for my family! I am keeping everyone at home and I am keeping everyone isolated for the requisite 14 days! Why? Because I not only want to protect my family. I want to protect you and yours!

Here is my take. #China DID release a virus that killed alot of ppl. Remember all the riots the #CCPChina could not contain? GONE The crematorium seen in space? #Democrats took advantage of this w many other countries following suit to try to instill communism.
Remember, #Birx said on national TV the #flu is gone. Remember #Pompeo said this was a drill. @POTUS mumbled something along the line of thx forvtelling me.. Remember #Gates had a mtg in early November re a pandemic. .
#CDC revised deaths n said 6% of ppl w #COVID19 died w/out underlying disease. Remember #Democrats and #FakeNews are not saying a word re the revised #CDC %. What did #FakeNews #AOC and other ppl say re how to beat @POTUS was to destroy the economy. You isolate or quarantine sick

How humble is Jesus, fam. His name, Emmanuel, God with us, reminds us he understands even this quarantine. And that he chose it!
When he could have been chilling in virus-free Heaven, he chose to camp out with the knuckleheads whom you and I both know were such a handful.
Thomas? He has maskhole written all over him. Like Lord Ima need to see how this virus spreads in the droplet pattern you describe?

And Peter. Try to get him in for contact tracing. “Me? At a party with Jesus? I don’t even know dude.”
Judas. I think we know how he would roll. Is my stock in bleach going to go up? Sure well then I’ll totally play along with this rouse where people get hurt.

Walking out these doors @UMassIALS @UMassChemEng @UMassAmherst is a weirdly feeling! I left home 13 years ago for the pursuit of happiness. Over the years, I have seen that some people move out of academia neutral 😐, some bitter 😕, and some happy 😀..... contd. @AcademicChatter
However, almost all the time you have to leave for bigger and better things in life.
One thing I’m absolutely sure about is that almost all people move out with a sense of ‘pride’. #phdlife
Pride of witnessing a phenomenon that noone ever had before!
Pride of seeing things develop that sounded utterly crazy as a child!
Pride of developing things that will be enabling for eternity!
Pride of being among that elite group of people on earth 🌎! #pridephd

There appears to be a lot of confusion between #ISOLATION and #QUARANTINE.

These are two distinct and crucial public health measures required to prevent the spread of #COVID19.

However, they are triggered by different things and the guidance differs for both... Here's why 1/n
Firstly a few important definitions
#ISOLATION (or self-isolation) is used for people with confirmed/suspected COVID-19.

#QUARANTINE (or restricted movements) is used for people who were potentially exposed to the virus, via a close contact or travel, but who are NOT sick.
2/n
The current Irish guidance recommends that you can end #ISOLATION If your test comes back negative (e.g. if you had symptoms).

If your test is positive, you can only end #ISOLATION if:
No fever for 5 days and
14 days since first developed symptoms.

कुनै पनि स्वास्थ्यकर्मीले आफुलाइ #COVID__19 को लछण देखिँदा वा #COVID__19 भएका बिरामीकको सम्पर्कमा आएपछि, quarantine मा बस्न र उपचार गराउ पाउन पर्छ। कोरोनाको सङ्क्रमणको शङ्का लागेका स्वास्थ्यकर्मी को तलब काट्ने, जागिर बाट निकाल्ने जस्ता कार्यले उनिहरु हतोत्साहित हुन्छन्।
#COVID__19 देखिएपनि, आफ्नो र परिवारको स्वास्थ्य र आर्थिक अवस्थामा खराबी नआउने बिस्वासले स्वास्थ्यकर्मीको मनोबल उच्च रहन्छ। आफ्नो‌ लछण बताउँदा #Quarantine मा बस्नुपर्ने र आफ्ना साथिहरुको #workload झन बढ्ने हुदा, सामान्य लछण भएका स्वास्थ्यकर्मी ले आफ्ना लछण लुकाउन सक्छन्।

Their ridiculous game of semantics, which many of us have called out for ages has now become a spectacle. They can call it “aggressive suppression” they can call it “John”. Who cares. We need our national strategy to truly align with 0 community transmission. #covid19aus #auspol
They will keep saying that “this has been our aim all along” and they are absolutely bullshitting. It is okay to change your mind. It is not okay to lie about it,
Part of making #elimination (or #John) a sustainable solution is going to be purpose-built or designed #quarantine facilities with a surveillance program beyond the 14 days that people are quarantined.

All new cases are that of Thais returning from #Egypt, #Germany & #US. All already in #quarantine. No local community infection for almost 2 months now. ImageImageImageImage
This as Thailand plans to further extend its #StateofEmergency. Country had introduced the decree since late March due to #COVID19. But it has been extending it on a monthly basis. Had already done so 3 times. Latest decree will expire July 31. Will be 4th time if extended again
Some #Thai citizens have staged protests against the extension of the #StateofEmergency, saying the law is unnecessary & accusing the government of using the decree to suppress & intimidate the people. But authorities have consistently insisted decree is needed to manage #COVID19

How New Zealand could keep eliminating coronavirus at its border for months to come, even as the global pandemic worsens

sciblogs.co.nz/covid-19/2020/…

#NewZealand 🇳🇿 #coronavirus 😷 #COVID
"Since New Zealand closed its borders on March 19, the rate of COVID-19 infections globally has increased 50-fold, to more than 13 million confirmed cases worldwide.

All new arrivals to New Zealand have to spend 14 days in quarantine at government-managed hotels."

#NewZealand
"Each person has to have a #COVID-19 swab test on the third and 12th day of their quarantine period and cannot leave without a negative test result.

A shorter #quarantine period would significantly increase the risk of an infectious person being released. The swab tests...

एक कहानी मुझे भी अपनी जाबांज dr बहन की सुनानी है..
वो दिल्ली के #हेडगेवार अस्पताल में कार्यरत हैं ओर हम सभी चिंतित थे कि वो छोटी सी बच्ची केसे कर पाएगी अपनी ड्यूटी #कोरोना संकट में वो भी रात दिन जागकर
कई परिवारवालों ने सलाह दी कि छोड़ दें नौकरी,जिंदगी रहेगी तो प्राइवेट अस्पताल१/१
में कर लेना मगर उसके जवाब ने सबको चुप कर दिया।
उसने कहा कि"सारे डॉक्टर के परिवावालेे अगर ऐसा ही सोचेंगे तो मेरे देश को कौन बचाएगा?"
ओर तो ओर उसके बाद उसे बुखार आया तो उसने अपने आपको #Quarantine करके खुद अपना इलाज किया ओर दोबारा ड्यूटी ज्वाइन कर ली।
एक महीने बाद उसे सर्दी खासी१/२
ओर सांस लेने में तकलीफ हुई तो एडमिट कर #कोरोना की जांच हुई जो कि नेगेटिव अाई ओर उसने१२वे दिन कमजोरी होते हुवेभी अपनी ड्यूटी दुबारा ज्वाइन की
जबकि #लॉकडाऊन में उसकी बाईं भी चली गई ओर खाना भी कभी बना पाती थी ओर कभी थकान ज्यादा होने पर भूखी ही सो जाया करती,ओर तो ओर१/३

The #Falklands have had a 14 day #quarantine (a quattordictine?) for some time ... but, initially, it was not legally binding and, latterly, it has been imposed by means of notices issued to individuals under other legislation (equivalent to Sch 21 of the UK Coronavirus Act)
#Quarantine is seen very much as the #Falklands' main line of defence against #COVID19 and military personnel coming to the #FalklandIslands now pre-quarantine in the UK before travelling - everyone else travels on a separate flight and isolates on arrival

Both Thais who returned from #Qatar in #quarantine. 36th day that Thailand has not seen a local transmission. Today is also day #StateofEmergency expires ImageImageImageImage
But #Thailand likely to further extend period of #StateofEmergency as #PM #Prayut had repeatedly said before that the decree was necessary and had helped to manage/control the #Covid19 situation in country. Some citizens refute that arguing the government is trying to extend grip
@ASEANMP statement on likely extension of #StateofEmergency in #Thailand calling it "an excuse to prevent protests from starting and the student movement from resuming". Says "no reason anymore for government to justify emergency powers" as nation has #Covid19 under control Image

THREAD:

A quick lesson in medical statistics for those of you who believe the current "second wave" scare story out of #Victoria.

It starts with the concepts of sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive value.

Even doctors struggle with this..
Each medical test that you have has a built-in level of accuracy (and therefore inaccuracy). Most tests will identify most people with a disease correctly and also without a disease correctly. But no tests are perfect.

The #Theranos story for example (but I digress)...
Sensitivity is the probability that the test will be positive in people with a disease.

The "pick up rate" if you will. Usually this is high. Expect 100% but we are seeing reports of 50-70% in #covid19

So, of 100 people with Covid, 30 could test negative.

My experience: #Covid_19 ICU rotation at #SGPGI #Lucknow

2. Apart from the usual comorbidities, central #obesity without over #diabetes or #hypertension also predisposed to #SARI
3. #Lymphopenia was a great marker of severity and a rising trend predicted clinical recovery

4. #recoverytrial further reiterated the use of steroids for patients with severe disease which many centers including ours was already practising
5. Although initially we had a guarded approach towards it, but #NIV with low pressures worked wonders avoiding intubation

6. Once intubated, outcomes aren’t great. Multiple reasons: severity of disease, nursing care and feeding becomes suboptimal, bradycardia associated with
