Re: Politics & Current Events

Would Remdesivir be used premptively to prevent its spread, or only to those invected? For now those infected. what does Remdesivir treat? what was it developed to do if it was developed for Ebola but use for coronavirus too? Your medical/scientific understanding would be as good as mine. All I kno...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm going to reup this: There is no reason to get crazy about this flu strain. I was just in a meeting with a bunch of MDs who are state medical directors. The virus is going to spread around the globe. It's going to become a regular health risk like other strains of the flu. It's not a serious hea...

Re: Politics & Current Events

A couple in Chicago got it. They were treated with Tylenol. This hysteria is media/social media driven. The only risk this poses is idiots panicking. This has a really long way to go to rise to the level of a bad flu season. If the hysteria can last another couple months then it will be a full 11 m...

Re: Politics & Current Events

So what I hear you suggesting is that I may want to plan to scale back on the travel I do to customer sites in various parts of the country? Within the US? At this point, no. I mean, look at it this way; the number of cases are just the ones they've caught since this thing is showing to be asymptom...

Jesus christ. I know it was already a horrible thing to be basically rooting for the economy to take a hit to undercut Trump...but a global financial crisis thanks to a pandemic is a tad bit of overkill.

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Marquee Sports recently agreed to pay $132 million a year on average for the rights to Cubs games, or more than double the previous deal. The network stands to lose about $100 million a year in subscriber revenue from the blackout on Comcast, based on a $5-a-month price. Even a settlement at less-t...

Re: Politics & Current Events

One of the MDs was an epidemiologist who was in China during the SARS outbreak. He didn't go into great detail about the masks, he said get N99 masks for healthcare providers. Exactly; they need it because of their job, and because the key part of them wearing a mask is so they limit their own spre...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Not sure if you're asking if he meant N95 or asking if N95 is ok, but basically N95 filters out 95% of particulates, 99 filters out 99% it was a question, and I didn't know what you pointed out. But CBNY only mentioned the n99 and cloth masks while I've read n95 are effective as well. I'm just aski...

For Biden. He’s been on the left of the core of the party for 40 years. And as that has moved left he has too.

Re: Politics & Current Events

It's more a combination of being overkill for everyday life (healthcare practitioners are wearing them because they have sick people literally in their face, and most of...well, don't) and that so many people don't use them correctly.
