"È una polemica a senso unico. Io l’ho ignorata fino all'ultimo, ma quando vengono dette delle bugie a fini politici, con sprezzo di tutte le sofferenze e dei morti, rispondo indignato.

1/ THREAD 7: Viral Latency and a Hematogenous Route to CNS?

Is it even conceivable that #SARSCoV2 could establish latency in sensory ganglia (like trigeminal ganglia in HSV1) and reactivate to cause recurrent disease as respiratory droplets could enter the eyes, nose, and mouth?
2/ Specifically, talking about the peripheral nerves of the eyes, nose and mouth here. And thinking along the lines of why clinicians are seeing the loss of smell and altered taste in so many patients. Please remember, I am not a #virologist or an infectious disease specialist!
3/ HYPOSMIA DATA:
Both the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery AAO-HNS and ENTUK have classified loss of smell and altered taste as significant symptoms in #COVID19. #Covid19UK

ICYMI back on Feb. 7, 2020, I published: "A Harvester of Sorrow – First Wave of the SARS 2.0 Novel Coronavirus" / #COVID19 #1918Pandemic #Pandemic #Coronavirus #SARS traderstef.wordpress.com/2020/02/12/a-h… Image
San Francisco had the 1918 flu under control. And then it lifted the restrictions #COVID19 #1918Pandemic #Pandemic #Coronavirus #SARS nbcnews.com/politics/polit…

I am opening for 'peer review' ¿? the email I sent to gather more data about #Hydroxychloroquine and #Azithromycin on the French study. docs.google.com/document/d/1Mf… @jeremyphoward
If any #virologist and/or #microbiologist is willing to dig deeper, let me know.
This one is the email I sent to the Ministry of Health (in spanish)... has a bit more detail behind what I believe can be done. docs.google.com/document/d/1-S…

"Restrictions imposed to control the virus — & public panic — have transformed #Italy’s commercial & financial capital in a way some Milanese fear will result in a deep & lasting economic blow."

1/ "Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte this week said the economic blow to Italy could be 'very strong.'”
2/ “'If the virus spreads, and it will spread, I think any local or national politician would have to take very drastic action, and that will virtually halt the economy,' said Roberto Perotti, an economist at #Milan’s Bocconi University, who was #workingfromhome this week."

1/2 Being a #virologist @DKFZ, I just HAVE to retweet this one. Yes, folks, #viruses do cause #cancer also in humans! Check out my #teaching slide in the next tweet! #HPV #HBV #HCV #EBV #HTLV #CancerResearch #infectiousdiseases #virology
@DKFZ 2/2 Merkel cell #carcinoma is a hideous #disease, but luckily very rare (though almost always associated w/ McPyV on the northern hemisphere). Even much, much more common #cancers are associated with #virus #infections (or #bacteria like H.pylori)! #HPV #HBV #HCV #EBV #HTLV Image
3/2 😅 Sorry, let me add one more remark: of course not ALL the shown #cancer cases are associated with #infections, but a significant fraction of the indicated cancer types are (e.g. #HPV in 99% of #CervicalCancer, aprx. 75% #HBV or #HCV in #livercancer!)
