Remember Boris Johnson bragging about shaking coronavirus patients' hands? Boy that was dumb
All that oral sexin
Which poster was always referencing Pink Eye? (I thought he was joking}
Pink eye may be an overlooked symptom of COVID-19
Solarina HoCTVNews.ca Writer
“However, because conjunctivitis is a common condition overall ... it may happen that ophthalmologists are the first providers to evaluate patients possibly infected with COVID-19 … It is possible - but not proven - that a patient with COVID-19 associated conjunctivitis could have infectious virus in their ocular secretions."

The most common symptoms cited by Health Canada, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization are fever, difficulty breathing, dry cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms could also include aches and pains, sore throat, and more rarely, diarrhea, nausea, and runny nose. There is also growing evidence that a sudden loss of smell or taste could be an early sign of COVID-19 infection, particularly for otherwise asymptomatic patients.
Data from 1,099 patients hospitalized throughout China with the novel coronavirus found that 0.8 percent reported “conjunctival congestion”, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Another COVID-19 study involving 38 patients from Hubei province that specifically looked at conditions relating to the eye found that a dozen of them had eye-related symptoms including “conjunctival congestion”. Eight of the 12 patients were considered “severe” or “critical” cases, suggesting that these ocular symptoms were more common in patients with severe pneumonia, the study’s authors wrote.
“Because unprotected eyes were associated with an increased risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-1, in support of our current results, our results might suggest that SARS-CoV-2 might be transmitted through the eye,” the authors wrote. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19, and SARS-CoV-1 is the virus behind SARS, which caused dozens of deaths in Canada and hundreds in China and Hong Kong in 2003.
The study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association also found that patients with the eye-related symptoms also had a greater likelihood of having higher white blood cell and neutrophil counts, as well as higher C-reactive protein levels - all indicators of possible infection - than patients without eye-symptoms. High levels of other blood test values including lactate dehydrogenase, which may indicate tissue damage, were also found.
Two other studies that – unlike the others – have yet to be peer-reviewed indicated the virus may be detected in the tears of COVID-19 patients, but suggested that the likelihood of transmission through eye secretions was relatively low.
Red eyes appeared to be a key sign of infection, Chelsey Earnest, a nurse at Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington told CNN in March, even when other symptoms were not immediately evident. She described it as similar to “allergy eyes”. Life Care was one of the earliest deadly COVID-19 clusters in the United States.
An asymptomatic glaucoma patient was thought to be the source of infection for Li Wenliang, the Chinese ophthalmologist and whistleblower who later died from COVID-19.
You left out some key points:
I’m actually surprised that Seth Rich was not mentioned
Potential treatment by September. This to go along with Abbvie & Gilead currently in Phase 3 Clinical Trials of drug treatments as well. Get treatments to market and readily available testing and we will be on our way back to normal.
love to see it
Life comes at you fast.
When keeping it real goes wrong
FYI I am here (and will not apologize) for any joke about a world leader who is deathly ill if they took a cavalier approach to this virus and put millions at risk.
real shame about boris johnson
As a fellow Eton man, I wish Mr. Johnson all the best. Stiff upper lip.
is trump a hand shaker? can someone tell him that they've heard he's a poor hand shaker?
Boris, if only you sheltered in place, you might not be resting in peace.
boris definitely got himself into an eton mess
Hopefully Boris has some bootstraps handy.
"As the president has said, in our line of work you shake hands when someone wants to shake your hand," Pence said. "I expect the president will continue to do that. I'll continue to do it."
before any of you civility weirdos chime in just know it’s objectively laugh out loud funny and good for society if boris dies
peak comedy and positive for the world. exactly what we need in these troubling times
Apparently Jesus was from Finland
Socialism bro. Just giving their deaths away.
Corona Jesus is Finnish.
Trump will be touting this by the end of the week
nah fuck him.
“and now the vaccine can be yours, for only 15,000 Marlboro Miles”
Not sure if enjoying is the correct term but don’t mind it at all and don’t understand why some people are bitching about it so much.
This is the zombie apocalypse portion of the pandemic.
jesus those are scary numbers. Have to think the quality care he is receiving may improve his chances, but what the fuck do I know?
I would root for him to recover if I thought the experience would make him any less of a cunt.
But I don't, so I won't
these pricks went by my house last night. Wasn't really that amusing tbqh
Yikes. Not funny under any circumstances, really. We live in a country where people would legitimately believe the purge was real and would start killing each other for sport.
Police in Louisiana did this as well. Stupid as fuck.
i watched a couple of the purge movies and they were surprisingly not completely terrible
Purge movies sucked
Hmm, I'm conflicted now
the purge movies slowly making their thematic point more explicit until chuds melted down when they just completely dropped pretense in the First Purge was amusing
