Covid-19: Information, papers, ressources
« on: March 22, 2020, 01:30:36 PM »
This thread will be a collection of the best ressources regarding covid-19. Please reply with your own information/websites etc. and I will add them here.

Useful ressources
Best & most detailed map
https://hgis.uw.edu/virus/

Very detailed graphs about covid-19, worldwide and for each country
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Nice overview about epidemiology, treatment, prognosis etc.
https://www.uptodate.com/contents/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19?source=history_widget#H3392906512

Websites with research
https://novel-coronavirus.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/

Center of disease control and prevention (CDC)
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/

World health organization
https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019


Personal protection
DIY facemask (from hongkong)
https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/health-environment/article/3050689/how-make-your-own-mask-hong-kong-scientists

Can you reuse commercial masks? YES
The best and simplest method is to heat the masks to 75C for 30 min. This does not lower the mask's efficiency significiantly.
Obviously using a new mask every few hours is still preferable.

Symptoms
Approx. 15-20% of cases are asymptomatic.
https://www.ijidonline.com/article/S1201-9712(20)30139-9/fulltext
Random tests in iceland and italy suggest that up to 50% of infected people are asymptomatic. Unfortuntately I couldn't find the papers for the studies in iceland and italy. I believe that both those papers failed to make a follow up, thus it's unknown how many might have gotten symptomatic after the positive test result.

Most common symptoms are fever (87.9%), dry cough (67.7%), fatigue (38.1%), sputum production (33.4%), shortness of breath
(18.6%), sore throat (13.9%), headache (13.6%), myalgia or arthralgia (14.8%), chills (11.4%),
nausea or vomiting (5.0%), nasal congestion (4.8%), diarrhea (3.7%).

Treatment
Standard of care is supportive/symptomatic (fluids, oxygen, mechanical ventilation etc) as well as treating complications (bacterial pneumonia etc).

Newest and most promising medication: Favipiravir
Time to viral clearance with FPV was 4d, vs 11d with LPV (Lopinavir)
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095809920300631
Limitation: They only looked at people from age 16-80 with symptoms for less than 7 days

Chinese guidelines
https://video-intl.alicdn.com/Handbook%20of%20COVID-19%20Prevention%20and%20Treatment.pdf
Limitation: It's more anecdotal and not evidence based

No benefit with Lopinavir/Ritonavir
https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2001282
Limitation: A positive effect was observable (better outcome with treatment) but due to the sample size it was not significant. Further research required.

ACE-Inhibitors and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers do not have a negativ effect
https://www.escardio.org/Councils/Council-on-Hypertension-(CHT)/News/position-statement-of-the-esc-council-on-hypertension-on-ace-inhibitors-and-ang
Limitation: Those drugs may even have a positive effect. Further research to prove wether or not they have an effect (both positive or negative) is required.


Prognosis
The overall mortality is unknown. An educated guess would be somewhere between 0.5-2.5%.
It is said that around 80% of cases are 'mild' (thus don't need hospitalization or oxygen). About half of the critically ill die from the disease (numbers vary).
In hospitalized patients, death occured in an average 18.5d after onset and recovery after 22 days.
Recovery in mild cases takes around 2 weeks according to the WHO.

This site has the lastest info regarding infections, deaths, and recoveries from Johns Hopkins: https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

It is a decent map aswell, but I prefer the one I suggested because it shows you the graphs with infections over time for each country.

This is also a good map.

Since it costs 1.82 to produce a penny, putting in your 2 if really worth 3.64.

I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Newly added:

Newest and most promising medication: Favipiravir
Time to viral clearance with FPV was 4d, vs 11d with LPV (Lopinavir)
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095809920300631
Limitation: They only looked at people from age 16-80 with symptoms for less than 7 days; so whether or not this works for people 80 years and critically ill people (they usually have symptoms for >7d until they get critically ill) remains unknown.

The invisible Covid-19 virus is like the fantastic US nuclear bombs stopping WW2 back in August 1945. https://ratemypoo.com/ . They were just fantastic, magic propaganda! They worked well. WW2 stopped at once. The idea was to say a months later that  a-bombs were a big JOKE but no. Sadly they are still around 75 years later. Same clowns are still at it. Only twerps believe in invisible virus.

Heiwa,  I'm concerning that at your advanced age you are not properly distancing yourself socially.  Please take 3 days and be safe.

I put my mask in the micro oven at 200 for 60 seconds and all viruses hide ... and when I open the micro the hot viruses fly away into my kitchen again. But I am strong ... and put my mask back again, etc, etc.
