The CDC has finally acknowledged that the coronavirus can be airborne

The CDC has finally acknowledged that the coronavirus can be airborne 

The news: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidelines to acknowledge that the coronavirus can be spread by tiny particles that linger in the air. The agency said it took the decision due to the mounting evidence that people with covid-19 can infect people even if they are more than six feet away, or shortly after the infected person left the area. These cases all occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces, and often involved activities that cause heavier breathing, like singing or exercise. 

The significance: Evidence that airborne transmission is occurring has been mounting for months. The WHO still has not recognized airborne transmission as a significant factor in the pandemic and the CDC’s slowness to acknowledge it has caused frustration among aerosol researchers, some of whom say it is the main route for infections. The CDC maintains it only occurs in “limited, uncommon” circumstances. Airborne transmission has become a topic of fierce contention, partly due to the fact it makes it far riskier to reopen spaces like restaurants, gyms, bars, schools, and offices.

What do we do now? The CDC advises that people stay at least six feet away from others, wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth, frequently wash their hands, clean high-touch surfaces often, and stay home when they are feeling sick. However, the implications of airborne transmission mean the CDC perhaps ought to shift its emphasis and go further, advising people to properly ventilate buildings, limit the number of people indoors at any given time while encouraging them to stay further apart and masked, and try to socialize outdoors where possible. Read the full story.

KARL VON VIERORDT’S TIME LAW AND THE CORONA PANDEMIC

Courtesy: https://lnkd.in/eBf-4vY

Underestimating Long Periods AND Overestimating Short Periods

Karl Von Vierordt spent his career studying how people perceive time. His biggest finding is the opposite of what you’d assume.

LINK: https://lnkd.in/eZ-q-wN The longer something drags on the easier it is to forget the earlier moments of your experience. Five minutes can feel long because you remember everything you’ve thought about over those five minutes. An hour can feel short because your mind might have contemplated 17 different topics during that period, 15 of which you don’t recall anymore.

TIME PODCAST: https://lnkd.in/ebnXxGH

***

***

EXAMPLE: Make someone wait in a room for one minute. After a minute, ask them how long they think they’ve been waiting. They’ll likely tell you something like “three minutes.” Now put them in the room for an hour, and ask them again. They’ll likely tell you something like “40 minutes.”

QUERY: Does this relate to Corona Virus “stay-at-home” orders and patient age?

WHAT IS “CONTACT TRACING” IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

WHAT IS “CONTACT TRACING” IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

When a patient tests positive, you make a list of everyone they came in close contact with. Then, you find those people and make sure they self-isolate before infecting others.

That sounds straightforward, but contact tracing a new patient typically takes three days, which is “an insurmountable hurdle in the U.S., with its low numbers of public health workers and tens of thousands of new cases every day.”

ELSEWHERE: South Korea used high-tech contact tracing to tame its outbreak. The government compiled GPS data, credit card swipes, and other info into a public log showing where COVID-19 patients had traveled.

Some countries (including the U.S.) are trying other methods, including looking at smart-phone location data and developing Bluetooth systems that provide warnings if you’ve crossed paths with an infected person.

PROBLEMS: Despite its widespread use in places like Singapore, contact tracing has raised concerns about privacy and governments following citizens’ whereabouts.

SO – EXACTLY WHAT IS A HUMAN SNEEZE?

About “STERNUTATION”

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

A Silly Question Until Covid-19!

A “Sternutation” is a sudden involuntary expulsion of air from the lungs through the nose and mouth due to irritation of the nasal passage.

LINK: https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Health-Insurance-Managed-Care/dp/0826149944/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275315485&sr=1-4

A sneeze is not always related to an underlying medical condition. It may be caused by:

  • Nasal irritants (dust, pepper, pollen etc)
  • Sudden exposure to bright light
  • Breathing cold air
  • Object struck in nose.

Self-treatment helpful in some less- serious cases include:

  • Change the furnace or air conditioner filters
  • Do not have pets in the house if allergic to animal dander
  • Wash linens in very hot water (at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit) to kill dust mites
  • Vacuum and dust frequently
  • Use a good humidifier especially at night, if the air is too dry
  • Drink plenty of water if suffering from flu/common cold.

See a doctor if you notice the following :

  • Fever greater than 101.3 F (38.5 C)
  • Fever lasting five days or more or returning after a fever- free period
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Severe sore throat, headache or sinus pain
  • Allergy does not resolves in a few days.

See a doctor immediately if you notice:

  • Sneezing is continuous
  • Causes severe ear pain, drowsiness.

Human Health Behavior TRENDS and COVID-19 Thoughts

Human Health Behavior and COVID-19 Thoughts

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Here are 3 theories and 1 “rule” for the healthcare industrial complex that may help explain how the sector may not work correctly; from trauma, to epidemiology and  to Corona; all the time.

1 – Berkson’s Paradox: Strong correlations can fall apart when combined with a larger population.

For example, among motorcycle crash victims wearing helmets are more likely to be seriously injured than those not wearing helmets. But, that’s because most crash victims saved by helmets did not need to become hospital patients, and those without helmets are more likely to die before becoming a hospital patient.

2 – Group Attribution Error: Incorrectly assuming that the views of a group member, like a physician, reflect those of the whole group in a different discipline.

3 – Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon: Noticing an idea or word every where you look as soon as it’s brought to your attention in a way that makes you overestimate its prevalence.

The 90-9-1 Rule: In social media networks, 90% of users just read content, 9% of users contribute a little content, and 1% of users contribute almost all the content.

QUERY: Does Social Media really give a false impression of what ideas are popular or “average.”

The Impact of Coronavirus [Covid-19]

People, Economy and Your Portfolio

By Vitaliy Katsenelson CFA

The Coronavirus

I cannot tell you how much displeasure I have experienced from what I am about to say. I’ll be throwing around statistics of people dying as if I am talking not about people but widgets. My six-year-old daughter Mia Sarah had a garden-variety virus a few weeks ago. When my wife told me – a few minutes after I had been reading about coronavirus –for a second my heart sank, as virus to me meant coronavirus.

Even if Mia Sarah had coronavirus, the chances of survival were greatly in her favor. (Coronavirus, like the flu, is exponentially deadlier to older folks than younger ones). However, when it comes to your loved ones, statistics lose their meaning, and you start magnifying tiny probabilities into high-probability outcomes. The coronavirus statistics represent people’s loved ones, but I don’t know how else to write what I am about to write.

I am going to divide this letter into three sections: health and human impact (sometimes a tragic one), economic impact, and investment strategy.

WHAT IS Ro [r-NOUGHT] IN HEALTH EPIDEMIOLOGY?

A Relationship to Financial Investing?

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA CMP

The basic reproduction number R0, [r nought) of an infection is the number of cases it generates on average over the course of its infectious period, in an otherwise uninfected population.

LINK: https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Health-Insurance-Managed-Care/dp/0826149944/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275315485&sr=1-4

The metric determines whether or not a disease can spread through a population. The root concept is traced to Alfred Lotka and Ronald Ross, but its first application was by George MacDonald in 1952, with malaria.

LINK: https://www.healthline.com/health/r-nought-reproduction-number

FORMULA: When

R0 < 1

the infection will die out in the long run. But if

R0 > 1

the infection will be able to spread in a population.

LINK: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/25/1/17-1901_article

ASSESSMENT: Generally, the larger the value of R0, the harder it is to control the epidemic. In the past week, Corona virus estimates ranged from 1.4 to 5.5. The World Health Organization (WHO) range was 1.4 and 2.5. In comparison, seasonal flu affects millions each year but has an R0 of just 1.3. The R0 rate for measles ranges from 12 to 18.

PANDEMIC “versus” EPIDEMIC

PANDEMIC “versus” EPIDEMIC

Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Is there a Difference? – Know the Difference!

A Pandemic (from Greek πᾶν pan “all” and δῆμος demos “people”) is an epidemic of disease that has spread across a large region; for instance multiple continents, or even worldwide. A widespread endemic disease that is stable in terms of how many people are getting sick from it is not a pandemic.

Further, flu pandemics generally exclude recurrences of seasonal flu. Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the Black Death, which killed an estimated 100 million people in the 14th century. Some recent pandemics include: HIV, Spanish flu, 2009 flu pandemic and H1N1.

LINK: https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Health-Insurance-Managed-Care/dp/0826149944/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275315485&sr=1-4

An Epidemic is the rapid spread of infectious disease to a large number of people in a given population within a short period of time, usually two weeks or less.

For example, in meningococcal infections, an attack rate in excess of 15 cases per 100,000 people for two consecutive weeks is considered an epidemic.

Key Differences

  • Epidemics is the outbreak of the disease in a community while pandemic is the outbreak of the disease globally.
  • SARS was an epidemic while AIDS was an pandemic.
  • Pandemic disease has the same origin or source where so ever it gets spread while the same disease is spreading with different sources in each country, it refers to epidemic.
  • Epidemic when extending to greater levels becomes a pandemic.
