Exactly. This will happen again and there is no telling when. Could be another hundred years, could be next year.
The good news is because this pandemic will touch the lives of every human being on earth, better safeguards will be put in place. Politicians will demand changes. The World will wake up.
This pandemic is nothing to minimize. The losses will be great. But there’s nothing preventing a much more severe pandemic from birthing after this one. We’re “lucky” this is a wake up call and not nearly as bad as it could be.
Zoonotic diseases can crossover anywhere there is contact between animals and people. Avian flu has come from chickens. Shutting down wet markets is a good idea that may not significantly decrease the risk of zoonotic transmission.
MERS came from camels. In the Middle East they are pets, food, milk sources etc. Mad cow came from bovines.
Nature will always find a way. (Or we could give up all meat-ha!)
SARS (10%),MERS (35%),Ebola (25-90% ave 50%) were all way more deadly than Covid. But they didn’t transmit. The current pandemic will have loss of lives in order of magnitudes greater than those or Avian flu.
God bless you for paying for a TV for those patients! Kudos to you!
@2ezwhat is this prone stuff? You mean sitting the patients up not laying down? I can only relate to prone positions in handling dumbbells lol.
I'm hearing mixed reports of re-infections, My local news has stated that when/if a person is reinfected, issues are less or not as impactful to the said infected person. But you are stating that reinfections are worse. That's the issues with this new virus...and i go to CDC.gov and no details on this there.
what these Cats do is reposition Patients that are on Vents. Not sure of the exact hours....but to give you an idea....Vented Patients are Prone for 18 hours, and then Supine for 6 hours. in addition, the head is turned every 2 hours as well. this is suppose to help while on the Vents.
Again, do not quote me on the amount of hours...but that is the concept.
