    Can't remember the article I was reading, but Moderna needed something fast tracked that was held up in a bunch of paperwork and Warp Speed helped out in those kinds of situations.

    It sounded like they had a different arrangement but idk. I am genuinely curious about this and not due to an argument. It got my gears turning.

    Yea Pfizer was not part of it. But the fact that people (not saying you) are scrambling to figure how it helps their team's argument is maddening to me. I have no idea why it surprises me.

    I find it quite interesting the way Italy's mortality has again risen significantly to similar of their peak levels whilst Spain's has not.

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/italy/

    Both have seen an avalanche of new cases but the primary difference is that Spain were the first in Europe to experience a real second wave.

    Both are very similar, I suppose in one way Spain actually had a worse first wave. I guess as Italy saw villages and towns getting hammered, we had a bias towards them meanwhile the likes of Madrid was getting very badly hit. Belgium have got hammered this second wave and France to a degree, but places like London are seeing similar reduced impact vs. Wave 1.

    Odds that shortness of breath/fatigue for 3+ days is covid? No known exposures nor other symptoms.

    Get a test ASAP. Assume you are positive and act accordingly until otherwise indicated.

    Could be many things, but yeah I’d get tested just in case. SOB never “normal” unless you have allergies or asthma or anxiety another known health issue.

    Moderna just sent all of us vaccine trial participants a generic message that they intend to file for EUA but for now the study will continue as normal. Whenever EUA is granted they will be discussing how and when to vaccinate the participants who received the placebo, so no timetable yet but they'll obviously let us know what the plan is once they decide.

    I had been freaking out about a slight wheeze and some shortness of breath at work the other day. I have allergies and some asthma. Called my doctor and he said the asthma was due to all the disinfectant being used at school. Sprays etc.

    Albuterol cleared it right up

    I’m usually able to answer wuickly when looking at the daily allergy report app.

    Asked about it the other day in the other thread but how long does covid linger in the air in a room? Essentially can you catch it if you walk into an empty room that someone with it had been in earlier?

    I work with someone that just got a positive test, but they say because symptoms started 10 days ago they can come back to work. Is that a real thing? Seems like fuckery.

    I think the CDC changed the guidelines on that, but who on earth knows WHY they changed it. I would probably base it more on 14 days or 3 days post symptoms from what I've read, but I'm not a doctor.

    i don't feel great about that. Data I saw showed rare, but real infectious virus cultured from patients at Day 9 but not Day 10.

    Correct. Data is weak for that recommendation and the conservative 10 day period is better imo.
    this is correct. 10 days after symptoms chance of still be contagious is very, very low but theoretically not zero. This is the national guidance

    Have been using outpatient monoclonals now on high risk patients for awhile now and (anecdotally) doing really good work when given early. Will be interesting to see the study data when published to see if it is actually helpful.

    Then again could be all placebo as well so idk lol. Fucking research

    Ez. Paper order set. Sign fax, patient gets infusion and in and out in under 1.5 hours. Easy peasy.

    we also have bamlanivimab up and running with same process for patients that don’t consent to being in a study.

    most choose the study because they get paid well lol

    one of my employees was exposed via close contact last Tuesday. person he was exposed to started feeling symptoms Wednesday, tested Wednesday, and received positive results last night. I told my employee to go get tested ASAP due to us working in assisted living. if my employee comes back negative should he still quarantine symptoms or no symptoms?

    FYI the CDC website still lists 14 days as the quarantine period, not 10. last updated October 27 https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.html

    14 days from exposure because average 4 days from exposure to symptoms hence 10 days from symptom onset

    The caveat to 10 days is that they also havent had any symptoms for 24 hours. It’s not like you can just be feverish and coughing up a storm and just head on back to work because it’s been 10 days.

    I was in a pretty similar scenario. I quarantined until I got my negative test result then went back to work the following day. Never had a symptom. My exposure was a very similar timeline to yours.

    I'm guessing they'll prioritize healthcare workers first, but they green lit it a hell of lot quicker than we did, even before the FDA conviened here.

    My bosses wife is a supervisor at my a city health department near where I live. They just got word to start developing plans on how to handle deploying the vaccine on a large scale. It’s not like they expect it to start next week, but at least the infrastructure is getting there.

    Right, it's all but decided that the FDA will grant EUA so why waste time waiting. I'm just surprised the UK granted their authorization that quickly, it makes me wonder if they're more lenient when approving vaccines and medical treatment over there vs waiting for FDA approval in the US.
