I wonder what percentage of a countries population has to follow lockdown rules in order for it to be effective?

South Africa got locked down at the end of March and while people accepted it at first, the backlash is growing.

Some of the more stupid rules:

1. No alcohol sales.
2. No cigarette sales.
3. All hairdressers, barbers etc closed.
4. Dusk to dawn curfew.
5. No cinemas open.
6. Fast food and restaurants closed.

Whoopee: reminds me of South Africa in the apartheid years.  Hatred

2. No cigarette sales.


That sucks I guess. A French doc said among the people who died of the virus he performed autopsies on only very few where smokers. He assumed nikotin in the body of smokers killed off the virus.

no booze how odd we bought booze here in ohio, i even have a glass sometimes before bed to help me sleep but not every night.  no smokes?

that's not a bad idea but than i don't smoke anyways. really no fast food? we have it but it's all drive thru here but we can't sit down in them or in any restaurants

which i'm okay with, but than you have the idiots who run Texas, Georgia, Florida and even here in ohio well in ohio i think they were slowly open stuff back up  but honestly it's just too soon, i get that the country is going broke and some stuff i think can maybe open or stay open but places where a lot of people like Church or Ceder Point/ disney world/land should not be open at all just yet. Florida/texas i think already are i think having their numbers rise already.

i do think that if they open all the way we will have more people die cause this country just isn't ready to do that just yet. if some places need to open that's one thing but than you have those morons in Texas who are opening restaurants where they don't want their staff to wear masks and they say if you wear them you don't have a job. it doesn't fit the look of the company uh so what? those are the sit down ones though that should NOT be open at all.  not yet anyways.

but they don't care at all. it's sad how in america no one in this country seems to care if people live or die. i don't mean anyone here of course, i mean the idiots in Washington/florida/texas  who are running those states they care more about money than if people die and that's just messed up.

i get they don't want to go broke, but the small business i get but the rich mofo's  who put money before their workers well... need i say what i think of them?

We have alcohol and cigarette sales. They're necessary because people are addicted.

No barbers or cinemas. Restaurants are open for carry out only.

No curfews here. People wouldn't stand for it.

I agree, your restrictions are unreasonably severe.

In our state restaurants are allowed to reopen May 22 at 1/3 capacity; barbers and salons May 25; movie theaters June 1 (at reduced capacity).

Something else to watch out for.


Quote
Hives, bumps, blotches and toe discolouration ― as doctors learn more about the coronavirus, reports are beginning to emerge that Covid-19-positive patients sometimes experience different kinds of rashes on their bodies.

It turns out that "Covid toes" are indeed a thing, but they're not the only skin symptom you may experience if you're carrying the virus, and rashes may appear even after your infection has cleared.

James Bradley, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Northwell Health, has been working directly with hospitalized Covid-positive patients. He has seen a wide range of skin symptoms firsthand, usually in one area of the body.

"We have seen almost a hive-like rash on the trunk, and I did see one 6-year-old who had it around the belly button and back areas," he said.

"It's pinkish, raised and itchy. I've seen other patients that it's more like an eruption of small red bumps, which we've seen mostly in patients who are admitted with more serious infections going on. It's hard for us to know if this is a viral manifestation or an immune response."

Harold Lancer, a board-certified dermatologist, said there are a variety of potential skin issues to look out for.

"Skin findings in patients with Covid-19 can be extraordinarily diverse," he told HuffPost. "Hive-like rashes, itchy or not, are the most common. Blotchy, red, migrating spots have also been noted along with areas that look like inflamed eczema, seborrheic dermatitis or perioral dermatitis."

Doctors think Covid toes — when there are red blotches on or even a hypothermia-like appearance of the toes — may be a result of the virus causing inflammation of blood vessels. Fingers and toes have the tiniest vessels, and are therefore more at risk.

"A lot of the skin manifestations we see are representative of what's going on internally with the organs, and fingers and toes relate to thrombosis and the damage to the inside of blood vessels," Bradley said.

"When you get blueish and reddish toes, it's either thrombosis or damage to the vessels."

Of course, Covid-19 is not the first virus to cause a rash — think chickenpox, measles, and hand, foot and mouth disease. But unlike these viral illnesses, not every person who is infected with Covid-19 will develop a telltale sign on their skin.

"There are papers coming out of Italy and China suggesting 2% to 20% have skin symptoms," said Jessica Cataldi, a board-certified infectious disease specialist at Children's Hospital Colorado.

"It's not the primary symptom for most people; the majority of people with Covid won't have a rash."

Reports in early May stated that children were experiencing rashes too, part of a new issue facing medical professionals: children seemingly developing Kawasaki disease, which causes inflammation in the blood vessels and a rash, during or after a Covid infection.

"In the skin, inflammation of the blood vessels can appear as excessive pink-red coloration all the way down to a paler, blanched look,"

Lancer said of the Covid-related symptoms doctors have seen in children lately.

"Nonetheless, it is a blood vessel inflammation and perhaps nerve inflammation. It is unknown if children are more likely to experience skin rashes than adults."

Although all of these observations require further research, doctors agree that a Covid-related rash could pop up on someone who isn't having any other symptoms. Whether that means their body wasn't very affected by the virus, or whether it means it has already passed through, depends on the individual.

There was a paper out of Spain published with over 300 patients, and in patients with lesions on the fingers or toes, less than half of them actually tested positive for Covid, whereas some of the other rashes I mentioned, a lot of those were testing positive," Cataldi said.

"What we're wondering is for the toe findings, is that something that happens after the body has helped clear the virus and your body is responding? Especially with Covid toes, those seem to happen in people who may not have many other symptoms at all."

"We have seen patients with just a rash and malaise who test positive for Covid. It could be one of the symptoms when you don't have others," Bradley explained.

If you see a rash or skin change developing that is unusual for you, Cataldi said it's worth calling your doctor. A medical professional can advise on the best over-the-counter treatment or determine if you should make time to get tested for the coronavirus.

"If it's new, different or something you haven't experienced before, you should absolutely call your doctor and ask what they think," she said.

"A lot of doctors are doing tele-health right now and should be able to take a look at it. Think back, are there any new medicines you've been taking, or any new lotions or things you've been putting on you skin lately? You can call your doctor and have them look at that rash, and the best way to figure out if it's Covid is to get tested."

Experts are still learning about the novel coronavirus. The information in this story is what was known or available as of press time, but it's possible guidance around Covid-19 could change as scientists discover more about the virus.

And earlier today- Doc Daneeka and Andrew all stopped in to say their farewells to Raffine.
 


I have normally just browsed through and not posted anything.  I was very sad to see that Raffine had passed on.  I know that a lot of us are getting to that 50/60 age group where mortality starts to become a lot more common.  I had been used to losing people in some situations, but being to the age where friends and peers pass due the fact that we are just older and more likely to pass on is harder to accept.

My sister and brother in law both have had Covid-19 so far.  It got her a lot worse.  She had a body rash and said her skin felt like a sunburn - so bad it was hard to sleep even.  My house has been on lockdown due to Delaware rules, with me working from home, the kids doing school from home (and Boy Scouts, Band, and sports all absent), and Katie's hours cut at work.

it just makes me laugh that we have booze and smokes those things aren't essential to have i'm sorry they aren't. i love a good drink as much as the next guy but they aren't something that is in dire need compared to well food for example.  i tried smoking once while drunk it was nasty and i never tried it again i prolly save myself a crap ton of money that way too. 


anyways, yeah i'm 41 and i wish i could turn back the clock as well my brother is 46 now and though i turn 42 in a few months i wish i was 22 again man do i wish i could change just so much.  anyways, it's just unreal cause i can remember when my brother was 15! and i'm sure all of you can relate to that too regardless how old many of you now are.  anyways, i see Little Richard Died and honestly i had no idea the man was even still alive to begin with i thought he had already died but apparently it was from Cancer. he was i think 81 or 87 i forget which, growing up i saw him on tv all the time i barely have seen him in the past decade so one tends to forget when some famous people are even still alive ya know? it's really sad i think i've said this before when i'm relieved it was cancer and not the virus

and in what period of any other time would anyone, anyone for that matter be relieved that someone died of cancer? how messed up is that?

Most of the folks who want the world reopened are not unconcerned by death; they're just concerned about the long-term FX of a shut down.
