    Coronavirus could travel 27 feet, stay in air for hours: MIT researcher

    Social-distancing guidelines to stay 6 feet from others may be woefully inadequate, one scientist warns — saying the coronavirus can travel 27 feet and linger for hours.

    MIT associate professor Lydia Bourouiba, who has researched the dynamics of coughs and sneezes for years, warns in newly published research that the current guidelines are based on outdated models from the 1930s.


    Rather than the assumed safety of 6 feet, Bourouiba warns that “pathogen-bearing droplets of all sizes can travel 23 to 27 feet.”


    Her research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, also warns that “droplets that settle along the trajectory can contaminate surfaces” — and “residues or droplet nuclei” may “stay suspended in the air for hours.”


    She notes a 2020 report from China that showed that “virus particles could be found in the ventilation systems in hospital rooms of patients with COVID-19.”


    Bourouiba fears that the current guidelines are “overly simplified” and “may limit the effectiveness of the proposed interventions” against the deadly pandemic.

    Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open label non-randomized clinical trial



    pdf alert

    Abstract
    Background
    Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have been found to be efficient on SARS-CoV-2, and reported to be efficient in Chinese COV-19 patients. We evaluate the role of hydroxychloroquine on respiratory viral loads.
    Patients and methods
    French Confirmed COVID-19 patients were included in a single arm protocol from early March to March 16th, to receive 600mg of hydroxychloroquine daily and their viral load in nasopharyngeal swabs was tested daily in a hospital setting. Depending on their clinical presentation, azithromycin was added to the treatment. Untreated patients from another center and cases refusing the protocol were included as negative controls. Presence and absence of virus at Day6-post inclusion was considered the end point.
    Results
    Six patients were asymptomatic, 22 had upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and eight had lower respiratory tract infection symptoms.
    Twenty cases were treated in this study and showed a significant reduction of the viral carriage at D6-post inclusion compared to controls, and much lower average carrying duration than reported of untreated patients in the literature.

    Azithromycin added to hydroxychloroquine was significantly more efficient for virus elimination.

    Conclusion

    Despite its small sample size our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.

    Interesting how different nations are approaching this virus danger. Finland for instance has loads of stock medical supplies. Germany treats their sick from cars etc. With Trump it becomes a politicized issue, rather than a problem to be faced and handled. His daily updates are often sound bites like his rallies for his ardent followers. But look at the piece on our South and you see the failure of politics particularity concerning the ACA aka Obamacare. Why is America's south so backward?

    Hope everyone is holding up in these strange times. Remember when mom told you to wash your hands, I bet you never thought that much about it before now.
