Thread: Corona Virus?

  1. #1

    Corona Virus?

    Do any of the nurses or anyone in the medical field want to comment on the Corona Virus?
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    Like any other virus, stay away from those infected, have been around someone who is infected or those that have recently visited that city, wash hands frequently , wear a mask when out in public if you are really concerned.
    There is no vaccination yet. If you have symptoms which are similiar to the flu, pneumonia go to ER and be tested.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    It seems the virus only came to light very recently, like 10 days or so. At first China reported 4 dead, then 9, then 22, then 56 and over the weekend I read they had over 100,000 cases and it had spread to at least 15 countries with 6 cases in the U.S. Guam supposedly got flooded by thousands of Asians trying to escape. None of this is being reported by the mainstream media and is downplayed if reported at all. Anybody at all hearing or seeing anything?

    This is not a SCI care issue. Moving it to the Health News forum.

    Here is CDC information about this outbreak:

    Still not much on mainstream news but am hearing from others that the number of cases has doubled over night, as has the number of deaths at 107. And that it has spread to 30+ countries. My understanding is, you can have the virus without knowing it and can give it to someone else, which is why it spreads so fast. Have not heard if any more cases are in the US.

    A Jet just landed in the US with about 210 US citizens, who evacuated from Wuhan, China, to escape the deadly corona virus. If this is just another virus, why is Wuhan building a new 100,000 bed hospital which is expected to be finished in a few more days.

    For the member from Iran who posted yesterday, inquiring what the corona virus is, and the post is now gone, this is a link. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronavirus
