Testing [emoticon]

Your last post had me a bit confused as it leads back to the start of this topic, like a loop.

Yep, it did just take you back.... so removed it. Thanks for the 'heads up'. [emoticon] (Mod)

I think this is a great display....

While listing to the radio at breakfast this morning, the morning person was reading a list of what companies are doing what to supply both disposable materials like masks and gloves and other things like ventilators (that are now in short supply) by revising and re-tooling some existing manufacturing facilities.

This is what America is all about.

Right now we are seeing a lot of 'the best of people' in how they are responding to the crisis and helping each other in so many different ways. Hopefully a 'benefit' of the crisis is that those behaviors will continue and make this country stronger after it passes.

The CDC, John Hopkins, Oxford, and even New York City and a lot of others are taking HCQ and Azithromycin seriously. Lots of medical trials have begun already. There are several first hand patients that are telling of their own success. No one is saying it's the silver bullet but their is no room to not take is seriously.

We are all anxious for a successful treatment however we have heard nothing about having such information within a week from any credible sources; including the three listed above. It would be great but.....

At the moment only small numbers of folks have been in trials. That should be changing as New York State is now doing "faint hope" treatments on compassionate grounds.

Please join me in hoping they work.

I had a question regarding hydrogen peroxide as a possible substitute for alcohol based sanitizers. So I contacted my daughter, who is a level 1 trauma nurse in So. Calif. She said that since they use peroxide as a skin cleaer prior to injections, she feels that "since it kills some bugs, it may have merit." It sounds reasonable to me. Now, I know that's not a definitive answer, but may have some merit in situations where a person has no access to the alcohol based product due to shortages. She told me she sees Coronavirus patents every day, and admits that hand washing with soap and water is still the best. She said her hands and arms are getting raw from all the washings. I thought I'd pass this on for those who may benefit from it.

I stocked up on disposable gloves some time ago, mainly for filthy diesel fuel pumps. Rather not have to wash a lot.
