Canadian doctor's brilliant 'evil genius' hack transforms 1 ventilator into 9
Tod Perry 03.26.20

One of the biggest obstacles to fighting COVID-19 in just about every country is the lack of ventilators. Patients with severe cases suffer from inflammation and a build-up of fluid in the lungs. This makes breathing and oxygenating the blood nearly impossible without a ventilator.

:snippity:

To get the most out of the ventilators at his hospital, Dr. Alain Gauthier, an anesthetist at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital in Ontario, rigged one of the ventilators so it could serve up to nine people.

:snippity:

According to the CBC, the rigged ventilator will only work with patients that have similar lung capacities. Multiple hoses are attached to the machine so it is running several times its normal power.

"At one point we may not have other options," Gauthier told CBC News. "'The option could be well, we let people die or we give that a chance."

Gauthier came up with the idea after seeing a 2006 video on YouTube. He says the idea has been tried once before, after the mass shooting in Las Vegas in 2017.

The hack was so impressive it even caught the attention of Elon Musk who tweeted, "Interesting thread."

I’m trying to find a comparison between Coronavirus, seasonal flu, and the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, specifically graphs showing cumulative cases and deaths by day. I’d like something to counter the “seasonal flu kills x so it’s not that bad” and “H1N1 killed way more.” Of course, the comparison is always annual total vs Cases to date, so laying it out by time would be powerful.

Has anyone seen this anywhere? I think I can do it myself from WHO reports, but that would take a while.

I was thinking more like “week 1 100 cases 1 death”

Yep. I've read some fascinating Spanish Flu pandemic reports. The story of the journey to acquire its sequenced genome is a good place to start. IIRC, there were many links to raw data on the sight that hosted that story.

Have you seen this?

That's because Obama handled H1N1 so badly. :evil:

Orthodox communities in Brooklyn see spike in COVID-19 cases

https://www.pix11.com/news/coronavirus/ ... d-19-cases
A simple, paper mask is not thought to slow the spread of COVID-19, but the lack of social distancing could be causing problems in the Hasidic neighborhoods of Borough Park and Williamsburg.

:snippity:

The Jewish Voice reported 100 positive tests between last Friday and Tuesday night in Borough Park and Williamsburg from one of the main urgent care chains.

Wednesday afternoon, Hatzolah — the ambulance corps that serves these Orthodox Jewish Hasidic communities — issued an emergency warning, according to The Yeshiva World:

“The coronavirus is actively spreading in our community. There are a significant number of people affected, with many on ventilators in the ICU’s and critically ill. This number keeps growing very quickly. Hatzolah is on the front lines and seeing this first hand.”

Food insecurity

The Brits always were going to have problems: their Brexit strategy (! strategy? not really) was going to impact the availability of migrant workers primarily from eastern Europe who pick those crops. They have a volunteer effort going; I suspect they'll make some attempt to mobilize the current non-working population to go into the fields and pick crops cheaply.

Not the German white asparagus crop!!! :crying:

When I was business travelling I loved getting to Germany in the Spring. I'd have white asparagus at every meal. A few times for every course of one meal.

In Britain, farmers are struggling to find people to pick raspberries and potatoes. Part of Germany’s asparagus crop risks rotting in the ground. And in Italy, over a quarter of the strawberries, beans and lettuce may lack harvesters. https://nyti.ms/2UkJ4aQ
It will be worse: same workers will be missing to prepare fields for this seasons crop and cleanup fields for the seasonal crops of next year.
