Luckily I have 2 inhalers at home (one is expired, but my doc said I could use it for a while anyway).

Over the weekend, I learned that those with blood type A are more likely to get COVID-19 than those with O type, and that not being able to smell or taste is also a first symptom (along with fever and coughing) and people should self-quarantine if that occurs because they have it and are passing it around.

I also learned that Men are more likely to get it than women.

But most stunning is that a whole lot of people who'd been identified as exposed, and even some positive for the virus had been transported together from a cruise ship (that couldn't get to its Venice destination) (on a charter flight), and then released and allowed to fly commercial within the US.

COVID vaccine?
« Reply #7 on: April 04, 2020, 07:41:41 pm »
We know that there are individuals who test positive for the virus but who remain asymptomatic. In developing a vaccine, do medical scientists look at those individuals to find out why they don't develop symptoms? We know some of the more general factors which reduce risk. Most of them have to do with a healthy immune system and age, and underlying health concerns. Is it more than that? When you look at the outliers, do they indicate something else? A healthy and athletic 25-year-old with the virus dies, but a 60-year-old smoker with the virus doesn't even develop symptoms. There has to be something more than just the absence of risk factors. 
All grown-ups were once children...but only few of them remember it. ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "The Little Prince."

I read an article a few days ago that talked about how much exposure a person had to the virus contributes to how severe that person's symptoms are. I can't find it now, unfortunately, but that looks like it's one factor.

I read another article that talked about the correlation between those who've had the TB vaccine get less serious symptoms than those that don't, and perhaps the TB vaccine is acting as a repository of sorts (they used different language that I can't recall) for various immunities.

I read another article that talked about how those with O blood type get less severe symptoms than those with A.

I would postulate that the most likely reasons for different responses among those of the same age with similar health conditions are genetic variations. A slight difference on a surface protein might make it just a little bit harder for a virus to enter the cell, or some other difference might change the way the immune system looks at the threat.

I’m sure making masks has been discussed but I’m not sure where.  I read a request that the part of the mask that touches the face to be made of a different fabric so the users could tell which was the inside. As I was cutting up an old t-shirt to be the liner, it occurred to me that this would be a great use for those garments where the markings had washed away (or have been removed)

There are too many virus threads to choose from. 

I just saw and listened to some of, a video by come purported IC doc in scrubs recording in his kitchen.  I have no clue who this guy is, or if he is anyone to listen to.

His theme was that the patients in IC are not suffering from pneumonia nor COVID but something else entirely. When he started in on respirators not being the answer I shut him off.

One, he was in his kitchen in scrubs. Not a lab, not a professional setting.
Two, he seems to be the only medico in the world whose hypothesis this is
three, why is he making a you tube? why moan to John Q Public? why not go to someone who is in charge?
four, the person who shared this with me is into pseudoscience with a huge dose of woo.

But even then, I am wondering, is there even one grain of vision in this? That in the rush and bustle of treating and trauma  we all are missing clues?

Gosh I hope not.
