Coronavirus - Doomsday

Recommended Posts

Infectious disease researchers at The University of Texas at Austin studying the novel coronavirus were able to identify how quickly the virus can spread, a factor that may help public health officials in their efforts at containment. They found that time between cases in a chain of transmission is less than a week and that more than 10% of patients are infected by somebody who has the virus but does not yet have symptoms.

One of the reasons I donate blood is because I am type O. Good news for some people, this makes up for the susceptibility to norovirus that we(type O) have.

The proportion of blood group A and O in COVID-19 patients were significantly higher and lower, respectively, than that in normal people (both P < 0.001). Similar ABO distribution pattern was observed in 398 patients from another two hospitals in Wuhan and Shenzhen. Meta-analyses on the pooled data showed that blood group A had a significantly higher risk for COVID-19 (odds ratio-OR, 1.20; 95% confidence interval-CI 1.02~1.43, P = 0.02) compared with non-A blood groups, whereas blood group O had a significantly lower risk for the infectious disease (OR, 0.67; 95% CI 0.60~0.75, P < 0.001) compared with non-O blood groups.In addition, the influence of age and gender on the ABO blood group distribution in patients with COVID-19 from two Wuhan hospitals (1,888 patients) were analyzed and found that age and gender do not have much effect on the distribution.

 

CONCLUSION People with blood group A have a significantly higher risk for acquiring COVID-19 compared with non-A blood groups, whereas blood group O has a significantly lower risk for the infection compared with non-O blood groups.

I used google translate, but the below is from the medical section of an Italian news paper.  I am unable to tell if this is anecdotal or there is a study that they are mentioning in the article. So take it with a grain of salt.

ROME - "The vast majority of people infected with Covid-19, between 50 and 75%, are completely asymptomatic but represent a formidable source of contagion". The Professor of Clinical Immunology of the University of Florence Sergio Romagnani writes this at the top of the Tuscany Region, in anticipation of a strong increase in cases also in the Region, on the basis of the study on the inhabitants of Vo 'Euganeo where the 3000 inhabitants of the country are been subjected to swab.

 

For Romagnani, what is now crucial in the battle against the virus is "trying to find asymptomatic people who are already infected because nobody fears or isolates them. This is particularly true for categories such as doctors and nurses who frequently develop an infection. asymptomatic by continuing to spread the infection between them and their patients. " And again: "It is being decided not to swab doctors and nurses again unless they develop symptoms. But in light of the results of Vo 'study, this decision can be extremely dangerous;

Kind of blows all the false data we have been receiving out the window. You know. Like the death rate. Of course this could be false data also.  :dunno:

Agreed, and I'm A-.  I'm also missing some contagion in my blood which enables it to be used for infants.  I told my wife this morning that I'm going to donate this week; it is something I can do to help.  :cheers:

Probably means that you have never given blood.  That is the only way that I know.

I don't understand why people always say the Chinese have very low hygiene but at the same time are known for never wearing shoes in their house, using maid services and being clean/neat freaks when it comes to the cleanliness of their home.

Yes, they are quite clean in their home. Obsessively so even.

The problem is public spaces. Public restrooms are absolutely filthy, and have no soap or paper in most cases. Tending them mostly involves throwing some mothballs in the urinal to knock the stench down.

Littering is just a matter of course here, so there is often garbage everywhere. Not so much in top tier cities, but in other places, pissing and sh!tting on the sidewalk is common, especially among small children. 

Food sanitation standards do not exist. You will commonly see meat sitting out in the heat for sale with flies buzzing about. 

Yes, many people have maids. But they're pretty lazy and useless.

Asians in general are gross. They're like certain athletic cultures here in America. They've never heard of or at least can't understand the usage of Kleenex. Theyre constantly snorting snot or Hocking Loogies or blowing their nose at the table.

 

Seriously, they worry about dirt on their floors but are some of the most non hygienic people in the world. Other than Arabs and of course the athletic types.

 

F*** the wall. Build a bubble.
