moslydeaf  ·  121 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: ASK HUBSKI: Have any of you or someone close to you had COVID-19?

I think i may have had it this past week, had a fever, muscle soreness, sore throat and shortness of breath for a few days. Just been shortness of breath the past few days but has gotten pretty bad at points, was slightly scared to fall asleep for a while last night due to how hard it was to breath and how bad my lungs were hurting.

Going to get tested tomorrow to confirm, have felt too sick to drive prior and tests are also hard to get around here, often having a 3-7 day wait period.

Makes me think of Nueromancer.

it's rare to see my state on here. The governor DeWine had such a well measured response to the pandemic before this that I'm left relatively baffled by this decision. Restaurants are included in the re opening, they are doing patio service for a week then allowed to return to full service. I don't understand it, a week is no where near enough time to see the impacts from a moderate loosening in restrictions. After so much grand standing about choosing the health of Ohioans over all else it's disappointing the administration is giving in to reactionaries. I fear we will have a second wave of infections that are much worse.

during this trip to the grocery store it’s vital to stay wary of charlatans peddling “affordable meat products” that are “made with real meat,” such as Steak-umm or Tyson. many people are uneducated and extra susceptible to marketing. please counter falsities if you see them with both data and proper seasoning.

This is the most coherent I've heard Biden so far.

i'm not sure how India will fair. last I heard on the BBC, the upper/middle class is prepared well enough but that the government was locking down crowded slums, and confining residents to the small homes they typically share with large groups of people. Hopefully it does not hit them as bad as it has elsewhere, but I think like you said that hey are just behind.

What do you all see as an end solution to the current state we are in? Without an adequate treatment or vaccine, I'm not sure how we are supposed to end social distancing and economic shutdown caused by it. From what I've picked up it doesn't sound like a treatment or vaccine will be available soon.

moslydeaf  ·  237 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Why plague doctors wore those strange beaked masks

Cool read, kinda of curious why the article says

    Ultimately, the plague doctors’ outfits—and methods—didn’t make much of a difference. “Unfortunately,” writes historian Frank M. Snowden, “the therapeutic strategies of early modern plague doctors did little to prolong life, relieve suffering, or effect a cure.”

when the outfit is described above

    He described an outfit that included a coat covered in scented wax, breeches connected to boots, a tucked-in shirt, and a hat and gloves made of goat leather. Plague doctors also carried a rod that allowed them to poke (or fend off) victims.

    Their head gear was particularly unusual: Plague doctors wore spectacles, de Lorme continued, and a mask with a nose “half a foot long, shaped like a beak, filled with perfume with only two holes, one on each side near the nostrils, but that can suffice to breathe and carry along with the air one breathes the impression of the [herbs] enclosed further along in the beak.”

It's not modern P.P.E. but I don't see how it wasn't beneficial still

i heard an interview on NPR saying the virus was mutating at 1/5 the rate of influenza. The pathologist . The virologist being interviewed said it suggested, hopefully, that vaccines would be effective for 2-3 years.

I wish I could find the source, but it is close to bed time for me.
