    In our rural hospital in KY we get 12 hour turnarounds for all our tests done at our hospital and at our respiratory testing centers that are spread out among several counties. In many cases it’s less than 3-4 hours. My wife has been tested 3 times, me twice and my son once and we have never...

    I have. Once to Sanford on Allegiant (you can read my previous posts in this thread about mask usage from that trip, although we were in a different place early June then now), and now I am currently on a two week vacation flying on United into Bismarck and flying back from Kalispell,MT...

    For work I was required to have a test prior to returning my hospital after vacationing in FL. My whole family got tested. Prior to leaving my wife had an exposure and got tested. That is 5 tests for my family with no symptoms right there for the 20-30 year old age group. Our hospital has a...

    This completely accurate. Having worked in over 12 different hospitals in my career in 3 different states, this is a relatively common occurrence, especially in winter during flu season. Some years we have had a tent outside the ED because the floor and ICU was full and our ED was overrun so...

    I was thinking the same thing until I went to Orlando last week and what I witnessed was impressive. Regarding mask usage in Legoland, Aquatica, Gatorland, Disney Springs and the Brevard zoo, pretty much everyone was obeying the rules regarding mask wearing. Grocery stores and gas stations that...

    actually, not all airlines require masks. Allegiant doesn’t. I just flew down to SFB from Huntington, WV on Monday and back this AM. Person at check in counter at HTS was not wearing a mask when we checked in Monday. One of the 6 people checking in people at SFB this AM wasn’t wasn’t wearing...

    Took a break from here for a while for my mental health. On vacation in FL now. observations. 1. Legoland - given there is no mask requirement, 99 percent do not wear a mask there. It was exceedingly rare. There was never more than 15-20 people in any line we stood in. Social distancing...

    Welcome to to the thread. Much of the debate is dead as it has been rehashed innumerable times over the last 1000 pages and it is now off limits per the Mom. There was quite a bit of suspense at the beginning of the thread, especially leading up to the shutdown. If you are reading it...

    Aa an ICU physician I would like to clarify some things from this post. 1.) I am not aware of any randomized control trials between noninvasive(nasal canula/cpap vs invasive therapies). If there is a peer reviewed article/abstract I would love to see it. If you hit the point where you need a...

    For those of you that were wondering about the month over month increase from previous years and saying these people would be dying anyway and that compared to the regular rates of death this would likely be negligible, the New York Times has an article and a nice graph illustrating the...

    In 1 year we will be lucky if we haven’t lost a friend, family member, or acquaintance to this. In 1 year many will be lucky to either have a job or returned to a job they had previously lost. In 1 year we will be lucky if we have a vaccine to help mitigate this disaster. In 1 year we will...

    Sadly, we never returned to normal after 9/11. We returned to a “new” normal. That new normal consisted of increased security and screening at the airports, sports gatherings, theme parks, national monuments, Federal buildings, etc. We adapted and that has become the standard now. Most of...

    Thankfully that is exactly why vaccination is such a popular treatment. It is incredibly affordable (Especially compared to other medical therapies. That’s how we eliminated small pox. We pretty much vaccinated the whole world and to this day remains one of the greatest medical triumphs...

    FINALLY! You are finally getting it!!! That’s exactly the point. It is TBD!!! That’s the issue!!! We have zero idea where this is going to end up and that’s why we have to slow it down. There is zero chance of it stopping at 0.27 percent Focusing on the current numbers mean squat except...

    RSV is a big one. For the infant population this would be huge if we could get a vaccine for RSV. We have pavlizumab AKA Synagis which is a monoclonal antibody that we give to super high risk patients Once a month during RSV season, but no vaccine. There are some in the works but we have been...

    For reasons I don’t understand you are fixated on current death numbers and cannot see the forest for the trees. There is a much bigger picture here that given your posting history you cannot seem to comprehend. On Mar. 24th you posted the current death numbers in NY state as quoted below...

    In the realm of exponential growth it makes perfect sense that we caught many states right before a large scale outbreak and caught it after in some. It goes back to the old riddle. There is a pond with 1 Lily pad. The number of lily pads double everyday. It takes 30 days for the pond to be...

    As a health care professional we do not notice things until there is a consistent new pattern. If just one person dies of an “unknown” cause in every hospital in America at the Exact same time we would never notice as each hospital only would have seen one patient with this new disease...

    I 100 percent agree. The question becomes what amount of deaths can we accept. The key is going to be getting this to a steady state And not be in an exponential growth phase. I used to think there would be a roundabout number like 200 deaths/day or something like that, but as this has...
