Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

I hadn't seen a couple of the models in that ensemble. The UT Austin model is interesting as it uses mobile phone GPS data to determine actual levels of social distancing independent of local or state guidance. Almost all of them seem to assume that current levels of social distancing will continue-...

Re: Malaria Drugs, Antibiotics and Other COVID19 "Treatments"

What’s Up With Ivermectin? glutamate-gated chloride channels, which vertebrates don’t even have, although it can also bind to other ligand-gated chloride channels at higher concentrations. It’s really just an accident of pharmacology that it doesn’t cause more problems – it’s very toxic to a number...

The latest CDC projections are dismal. The daily death rate continues to climb.
This is well worth scanning. It's not easy to copy/paste from.

Re: Coronavirus: Food Supply & Shortages

I can't speak to the non-Amarillo meat plants (except the situation might be similar), but most of the Amarillo workers are bussed in--an hour each way--and likely many live together. So, the context of the disease spread is likely more than just workplace interactions.

To me, that variable is interesting, but inconclusive.

Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

Mostly correct. However, what has been noted is that the respiratory dysfunction seems to be less about portions of the lungs not getting airflow, but more about blood flow. So, since CO2 levels (and the pH "alarms" associated with high CO2 levels) are normal, people seem to be not in distress with ...

Outcomes Among 5700 Patients Hospitalized With COVID-19 in the New York City Area

Only 40 of 5700 mechanically ventilated survived.
In the 18-65 age group, 76.4% mortality
65+, 97.2 % died

Invasive ventilation is looking grim.

Yes... But, the Blue Angels (with their tight wingtip-to-wingtip formations) are not good examples of social distancing.
