    Coronavirus: what happens to people's lungs when they get Covid-19?

    The least serious are those people who are “sub-clinical” and who have the virus but have no symptoms.

    Next are those who get an infection in the upper respiratory tract, which, Wilson says, “means a person has a fever and a cough and maybe milder symptoms like headache or conjunctivitis”.

    He says: “Those people with minor symptoms are still able to transmit the virus but may not be aware of it.”
    The largest group of those who would be positive for Covid-19, and the people most likely to present to hospitals and surgeries, are those who develop the same flu-like symptoms that would usually keep them off work.

    two weeks ago he said it wasn’t a big deal and compared it to the flu by saying it wasn’t as bad. Not for nothing, but f*** that guy

    It is needed desperately. Hospital workers and administrators are crying out for help on every medium possible begging for masks, gowns, ventilators and more.

    Google late Friday debuted a new website devoted to information about COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus, including local information, prevention tips, search trends and additional resources for individuals, educators and businesses.

    Why it matters: Google's effort, designed to help get the most accurate information before the largest number of people, has been complicated as Google has had to scramble to catch up to President Trump's pronouncements.

    Details: The site is launching Friday in the U.S. and will be available in coming days in other languages and countries. Currently, those seeking information on being tested will be given the CDC's generic recommendations, though Google may add more personalized options later.

    General Motors is partnering with Ventec Life Systems to help increase production of ventilators that are needed in hospitals dealing with patients who have the novel coronavirus, the companies announced Friday. In the most severe cases of COVID-19 infection, patients need the assistance of ventilators to breathe, and there are widespread concerns that the US does not have enough ventilators to meet the coming demand.

    As the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 spreads across the globe, with cases surpassing 284,000 worldwide today (March 20), misinformation is spreading almost as fast.

    One persistent myth is that this virus, called SARS-CoV-2, was made by scientists and escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began.

    That analysis showed that the "hook" part of the spike had evolved to target a receptor on the outside of human cells called ACE2, which is involved in blood pressure regulation. It is so effective at attaching to human cells that the researchers said the spike proteins were the result of natural selection and not genetic engineering.

    The coronavirus did not escape from a lab. Here's how we know. | Live Science

    Thanks so much. I thought there might have also been something one could take on top of getting a good night's sleep.

    I'd be curious to find out how many hours Fenway sleeps. He's always available. :sarcasm:

    Some posters are swearing by zinc as something to help you to fight a virus but when I went to the pharmacy the other day (my sole outing in the last 11 days), the pharmacist said there was no veracity to the claim.

    They do say there is nothing that's helps.

    Vitamin D3 plus lots of real food like vegetables will help boost your immune system.

    Root vegetables are great for soups. I'll post a root vegetables soup recipe in the food thread soon.

    Pharmacist told me if you're eating well, there is no reason to add homeopathic products. He did recommend Vitamin C, though.
