Interesting drug finding: Ivermectin is used to treat parasite infestation for a wide variety of animals, including humans. One paper that was presented on Med-Cram today said it decreased SARS-Cov2 virus in vivo (inside cells) by 100,000 times in four days. It is available by prescription in the US and is used to control things like scabies. One more interesting thing is that you may actually have some! It's usually the only active ingredient in things like Heartguard or mange medicines for dogs.

The usual human dose is 9 mg/100 lbs, but that is for a single dose. It's half life is only 12 hours, so the dosage for 4 days has to be less. DO NOT take any unless you get it approved by your doctor. The last thing we need is another aquarium cleaner fiasco. This would be for treatment of patients with acute Covid-19. Not as a prophylactic. Long term use may be very bad.

INFORMATIONAL ONLY: DO NOT TAKE
Hydroxychloroquin might be promising as well, but it kills people by cardiac QT lengthening and arrest.

The one drug therapy that seems very safe is several cups of green tea per day with zinc supplements or lozenges.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson late Thursday was moved out of an intensive care unit as he recovers from COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

Downing Street said in a statement that Johnson would move to London's St. Thomas Hospital ward, "where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery."


---And as soon as he is recovered he will go back to doing his best to invite Trump to take over and dismantle the British NHS and privatize it so that British subjects will get to learn a two word phrase that never before entered their lexicon:

Medical Bankruptcy

Meanwhile...

We're Number One!

...in everything except TESTING.

Number one in infections.
Number one in casualties, far above China which has four times the population.
Number one in dead to infected ratio.

The only thing we are NOT Number One in...is TESTING.
Our response to this crisis isn't even as good as Iran's.

Here is a report on the county I live in:
COVID-19 in Clallam County
# of tested in Clallam County 623
# of negative 561
# of positive 11
# of pending 51
# of recovered **Updated weekly** 6

As you can see we are, now, all the way up to 11, 6 of which are recovered. This is, I suspect, a really good place to be right now. I always knew there was a good reason to be living in a somewhat isolated place. Our hospital is in trouble because they can't do regular operations and are considering laying off some of the hired help. I am also not sure why when they have a lot of space!

Years ago I remember when there were battles going on over Canadian healthcare and American healthcare. This included a bunch of stories about how the Canadians were flooding down here for their healthcare (all bogus). Anyway, our hospital board, in their infinite wisdom, decided they wanted a bit of that business so they changed the name of the hospital, added even more beds, and started advertising in Victoria. They never were able to entice a single Canadian down here (we have a ferry that goes to Victoria, BC every day (except now, and has been shut down due to Covid-19). I am writing this as an example of how baloney can find homes in the darnedest places. (if it can happen here it can happen anywhere?)

20,000 cases and 461 dead in Florida right now.

My county is mostly rural and only has 148 cases.

Here's an odd headline I just saw...

Lake County distillery shifts production from moonshine to hand sanitizer
Yalaha Bootlegging Company utilizes blueberries to produce alcohol needed Link

By the time this is over, rural areas will be in greater danger than urban centers, for the obvious reason: Resources are concentrated in the urban areas. Hell, that's why humans build cities in the first place.

Time for a little bit of Corona Humor:

Did you hear about the suspected Covid-19 male patient lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose.

A young student female nurse appears and begins to give him a partial sponge bath.
"Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"
Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."

He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"
Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers.

She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.
She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."

The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly,
"Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very, closely:

“Are - my - test - results - back?”
