I think it will be higher. 1) ventilators are entirely ineffective. The corporation that owns the hospital where my wife works in the ICU (filled with corona patients on vents) has currently reported zero recoveries of covid patients put in a vent--every single one in their network of hundreds of hospitals, has died...but only after draining resources and infecting healthcare workers for weeks. I don't know why this isn't major news. The general public does not know what the experts do--that ventilators are irrelevant, ineffective, and likely counter productive. 2) I live in Washington state and the Gov's quarantine measures will not be effective enough. Data not out but it's easy to infer: gas station convenience stores are for some reason open and full of people in those small spaces, traveling around and contaminating each other; public restrooms are closed but portapotties (without means to properly sanitize hands) have been placed outside such restrooms.....the list goes on. Also, there is presently a girl in her 20s who has been on a vent for two weeks in the ICU--not a smoker or obese.

The reason I asked for the video is because how news articles always contain bias. Unedited video have no bias and you can form a better opinion on what you saw, not what someone else tells you they saw.
As to the video clip, he calls the media's handling of the whole situation, a hoax.
>Very dishonest people. Now the Democrats are politicizing the Corona Virus.
He mentions democrats here, because he's said multiple times he groups the media together with democrats because most of them, according to him, are mouthpieces of the party. Then he goes on to give examples of previous attempts to form a narrative around misinformation.

virus does not live AFAIK. The way I understand it, it can't move by itself. It waits for host cell to touch it and due to chemical process attaches to it, then injects it's rna and the cell produces new viruses. then _something_ is triggered and viruses escape the cell, taking part of it as an camouflaging envelope to protect against immune system and wait for next cell to arrive.

>can you make a virus in the Lab and make it sleep
no. a virus is just a piece of DNA/RNA surrounded with protein or fat. it doesn't do anything by itself and cannot replicate itself, it needs to come into contact with a cell that will create more copies of the virus.

a virus can either be intact, in which case it will be infectious - or it can be destroyed. There is no in-between. you can't make it 'sleep' any more than you can put a rock or a bag of sand to sleep.

>> No.11513279

>then _something_ is triggered and viruses escape the cell
not really, the cell just keeps making copies of the virus until it literally bursts, releasing viruses in the process

The mayor is the threat not trump. Why is it so bad in NYC? The idiot mayor didn't even close down the subways when this thing was starting. Then he bitched at trump for vents--so trump does something even though I'm ire Trump knows the vents are enorelu pointless and ineffective (something still not in the general public knowledge for some reason), then trump talks about quarantining New York and the mayor bitches about how stupid that is. He just bitches about a problem he himself basically caused--had this one mayor acted fast and smart, perhaps this thing would not be like it is, spread everywhere and at a critical point.

By the way, Republicans have won exactly 1 election since 1992 and that was George Bush's second election in 2004 where a sitting president went against a virtual nobody and only won by 2 percentage points.

When this began, the Chinese and Italians and such were using standard intubation/ventilation criteria. As it turns out, that was probably way too late. Now our threshold for intubation is much, much lower. If you come in with a regular old pneumonia, the sequence is usually nasal cannula - high-flow nasal cannula - non-rebreather - Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure - intubation. Based on our experience so far, for COVID, the protocol is nasal cannula - intubation. So our ventilated patient mortality is going to be much lower than previous, because we are both increasing the number of people who are ventilated and decreasing the average severity of illness of ventilated patients because, if we have a limited number of ventilators, and we are ventilating people at an earlier and milder stage of illness, we are going to be refusing to intubate a certain number of patients. We are getting a much better idea of what futility is now.

Emerging evidence suggests many more people are infected. than tested. In Vo Italy, at the time the first symptomatic case was diagnosed, about 3%, had already been infected – most were completely asymptomatic.

We could make a simple estimation of the IFR as 0.26%, based on halving the lowest boundary of the CFR prediction interval. However, the considerable uncertainty over how many people have the disease means an IFR of 0.26 is likely an overestimate. In Swine flu, the IFR ended up as 0.02%, fivefold less than the lowest estimate during the outbreak (the lowest estimate was 0.1% in the 1st ten weeks of the outbreak). In Iceland, where the most testing per capita has occurred, the IFR lies between. 0.01% and 0.19%.

Taking account of historical experience, trends in the data, increased number of infections in the population at largest, and potential impact of misclassification of deaths gives a presumed estimate for the COVID-19 IFR between 0.1% and 0.26%.*

It lends credence to the original info published on the virus. It doesn't kill everything in its path but the recovery process requires a trip to the hospital which presumably would include a vent while there to insure you don't drown by your own lungs.

well, in theory there is, viruses have not existed since the Big Bang, they must have emerged on Earth from simple chemistry, just like life did - but we don't know how it happened exactly.
Whatever happend it probably took many thousands or millions of years - and in environmental conditions that don't exist in nature anymore, as modern-day Earth is very different from Earth 4 billion BCE, so it most likely cannot happen in nature anymore, current viruses can only evolve from already existing ones.
At best what can maybe happen is that viroids might become viruses. Viroids are even simpler than viruses, they are just bare strands of RNA without any coating and so far they are only known to be able to infect plants, no human viroids have been identified as of now.

No stories have been done about it in the US but it's the same here...basically zero people put on a vent survive. What I can't figure out is why this isn't public knowledge or being talked about. We should be manufacturing PPE for healthcare workers, not ventilators that are literally pointless (if not downright detrimental to containment). No point in posting this stuff here. People are in hardcore denial. I was permabanned for trying to post the truth about ventilators. Appealed. Now back posting a bit more because I don't know what else to do, when I see my entire country (this board especially) in denial over what is happening.

I would love to hear about these people who work (I presume in the ICU, because no other floor has knowledge of the ventilator issue and is basing their info off the media and delusion, not first hand knowledge) in the hospital, lol! They should share their magical cure with the rest of the world where it is clear everyone serious enough to need a vent ends up dying. I bet your friend is OB or OR or in transport or reception, lol. Only doctors and nurses in the ICU of a certain grade of hospital know what's going on. The ICU in many hospitals is so pathetic, they have to ship these patients elsewhere....there is no motive to make up that the vents don't work....we all have a motive--peace of mind; false sense of control--to believe vents work. Your mom and dad will die if they get this and need critical care. Accept that.

If Ventilators ain't saving then what is it on how we survive this virus then?

First hand knowledge, bud. I am as perplexed as you over why this isn't a story. I think it speaks to the power of denial even at a species-wide level.

Anon doesn't know really, 350 million deaths is pretty overblown if you ask me.

Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean you blindly defy everything they do or attempt. Being the president is a major responsibility. I doubt anyone who has sat in that chair is buffoon enough not to feel that weight. Followers don't understand the weight of leadership.

Yet the intubated patients in the US are still all dying.... I can't blame you for your optimism.

I was always skeptical of how exactly ventilators would be able to save lives in this situation, and I always assumed there was some crucial detail that I was missing as a layman. From my layman's perspective it makes perfect sense though that ventilators would have little effect on survival rates, considering that the problem isn't that the patient can't breath but that they can't absorb oxygen into their blood because their alveoli are clogged. Forcing more air into their lungs can't solve this issue anymore so than pumping food down the throat of of someone who has lost their stomach will save them from starvation.

I bet ecmo works though.
