Americans should prepare for coronavirus crisis in U.S., CDC says

Top U.S. public health officials said Tuesday that Americans should prepare for the spread of the coronavirus in communities across the country.

“It’s not so much a question of if this will happen any more, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said during a media briefing Tuesday.

Your pressing coronavirus questions, answered

Measures to contain the virus in the U.S. so far have involved restricting travel to and from China — the center of the outbreak — and isolating cases identified so far in this country.

But Messonnier said that evidence that the virus is spreading countries outside of Asia, such as Iran and Italy, has raised CDC’s “level of concern and expectation that we’ll see spread” in the U.S.

As of Tuesday, more than 300 cases had been reported in Italy. Iran had nearly 100 cases.

“When you start to see sustained transmission in other countries throughout the world, it’s inevitable that it will come to the United States,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told NBC News.

Messonnier cautioned Americans to prepare for disruptions to their daily lives, including school closings, working from home and delayed elective medical procedures, as efforts to contain and control the possible spread in the U.S. may accelerate in the coming weeks.

“We should all be dusting off our pandemic preparedness plans and rehearse them very quickly,” Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University, said. “The core concept is social distancing.”

This means that business leaders, for example, should start considering who can work from home. Perhaps the time will come, experts said, to observe religious practices and ceremony at home, rather than larger community gatherings at places of worship. And families should start asking themselves how they would handle a week or two at home, without traveling for food, medicine or entertainment.

“There has to be a shift in mindset,” Dr. Bruce Aylward, team leader for the WHO-China joint mission on COVID-19, said during a media briefing Tuesday. Aylward and a group of international scientists —which included members of the U.S. CDC and National Institutes of Health — spent several weeks in China learning about the country’s coronavirus response.

Aylward said that hospitals can help prepare for potential coronavirus spread by focusing on resources that would count most in keeping the most vulnerable patients alive: isolated hospital beds, ventilators to help people breathe and personal protective equipment for health care workers.

Man dies after taking chloroquine in an attempt to prevent coronavirus

An Arizona man has died after ingesting chloroquine phosphate — believing it would protect him from becoming infected with the coronavirus. The man’s wife also ingested the substance and is under critical care.

The toxic ingredient they consumed was not the medication form of chloroquine, used to treat malaria in humans. Instead, it was an ingredient listed on a parasite treatment for fish.

The man’s wife told NBC News she’d watched televised briefings during which President Trump talked about the potential benefits of chloroquine. Even though no drugs are approved to prevent or treat COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, some early research suggests it may be useful as a therapy.

“We were afraid of getting sick.”

The name “chloroquine” resonated with the man’s wife, who asked that her name not be used to protect the family’s privacy. She’d used it previously to treat her koi fish.

“I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, ‘Hey, isn’t that the stuff they’re talking about on TV?'”

The couple — both in their 60s and potentially at higher risk for complications of the virus — decided to mix a small amount of the substance with a liquid and drink it as a way to prevent the coronavirus.

“We were afraid of getting sick,” she said.

Within 20 minutes, both became extremely ill, at first feeling “dizzy and hot.”

“I started vomiting,” the woman told NBC News. “My husband started developing respiratory problems and wanted to hold my hand.”

She called 911. The emergency responders “were asking a lot of questions” about what they’d consumed. “I was having a hard time talking, falling down.”

Shortly after he arrived at the hospital, her husband died.

On Monday, Banner Health, based in Arizona, said the couple took the additive called chloroquine phosphate.

The couple unfortunately equated the chloroquine phosphate in their fish treatment with the medication —known as hydroxychloroquine — that has recently been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19, which has infected more than 42,000 people in the U.S. and killed at least 462.

Dr. Daniel Brooks, medical director of Banner Poison and Drug Information Center, said in a statement: “Given the uncertainty around COVID-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus, but self-medicating is not the way to do so.”

On Friday, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control pleaded with its people not to engage in self-medication with chloroquine, as it “will cause harm and can lead to death.” The country had reported at least two such poisonings.

#FactsNotFear@WHO has NOT approved the use of chloroquine for #COVID19 management. Scientists are working hard to confirm the safety of several drugs for this disease.

Please DO NOT engage in self-medication. This will cause harm and can lead to death.#COVID19Nigeria pic.twitter.com/K6kljq0VtW

— NCDC (@NCDCgov)

The Food and Drug Administration has not approved chloroquine to treat the coronavirus, and studies of its safety and effectiveness are just beginning.

The Arizona woman now warns others to listen to medical professionals for the best coronavirus advice.

“Be careful and call your doctor,” she said.

“This is a heartache I’ll never get over.”

A Personal Trainer Gained 70 lb to Lose Weight With His Client, and It Did Work

Losing weight is not an easy journey, since you have to work out hard, cut unhealthy (but so delicious) food out of your life, and stay motivated at the same time. We can all benefit from a guide who will wholeheartedly share their ideas with us, to make us healthier versions of ourselves. But the decision to share your pain and fight this battle with you is what makes or breaks a trainer. And this is exactly what Adonis Hill did to inspire his client to slim down.
Here at  Bright Side we admire people who go the extra mile to help others and even save their lives. This trainer showed us that support is a crucial thing when you’re beginning a workout regimen.
This story started with the TV Show Fit To Fat To Fit , where personal trainers aim to better understand their clients’ struggles by gaining weight and challenging themselves. When Adonis Hill was asked if he would gain 70 lbs for someone else, his answer was firm, “ If it  means saving their life, heavens yes !”
His client Alissa had been overweight her entire life. When she began this project, her weight was 308 lbs. Adonis had to gain more than 70 lbs in 4 months to match his partner. To do so he ate tons of junk food, drank soda, and stopped exercising.
His dedication caused some health issues. Doctors had to stop his weight gaining process one month earlier than they had planned because Adonis was diagnosed with hypertension and prediabetes. The good news is that he is no longer on meds since he returned his weight to normal. But he has no regrets and compares the risk he took with “a  fireman going into a burning building and rescuing someone trapped by a fire.”
When the first goal was hit, the second part of the journey started. Alissa and her selfless trainer worked together to get the bodies of their dreams. They ran, lifted weights, followed a strict diet, and supported each other through those difficult times. It was a real challenge since they had to fight not only lazy behavior, but also old addictions to unhealthy food and judgements from others, that have the power to ruin any aspirations.
After several months both of them achieved brilliant results. Alissa managed to lose 57 lbs in 4 months while Adonis reported that his weight was around 227 lbs. This means that this venture was worth the effort.
From his own experience, Adonis Hill showed that people can achieve anything if they are motivated enough. He  concludes that it was all about empathy, and the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. With this experiment, the trainer hopes to raise awareness around obesity risks. “If we continued down that unhealthy road , the cemetery is where we would’ve ultimately ended up.”
Do you know other people who are ready to go far beyond their everyday responsibilities to achieve something?

Young and Unafraid of the Coronavirus Pandemic? Good for You. Now Stop Killing People | Opinion

I’m a doctor in a major hospital in Western Europe. Watching you Americans (and you, Brits) in these still-early days of the coronavirus pandemic is like watching a familiar horror movie, where the protagonists, yet again, split into pairs or decide to take a tour of a dark basement.

The real-life versions of this behavior are pretending this is just a flu; keeping schools open; following through with your holiday travel plans, and going into the office daily. This is what we did in Italy. We were so complacent that even when people with coronavirus symptoms started turning up, we wrote each off as a nasty case of the flu. We kept the economy going, pointed fingers at China and urged tourists to keep traveling. And the majority of us told ourselves and each other: this isn’t so bad. We’re young, we’re fit, we’ll be fine even if we catch it.

Fast-forward two months, and we are drowning. Statistically speaking—judging by the curve in China—we are not even at the peak yet, but our fatality rate is at over 6 percent, double the known global average.

Put aside statistics. Here is how it looks in practice. Most of my childhood friends are now doctors working in north Italy. In Milan, in Bergamo, in Padua, they are having to choose between intubating a 40-year-old with two kids, a 40-year old who is fit and healthy with no co-morbidities, and a 60-year-old with high blood pressure, because they don’t have enough beds. In the hallway, meanwhile, there are another 15 people waiting who are already hardly breathing and need oxygen.

The army is trying to bring some of them to other regions with helicopters but it’s not enough: the flow is just too much, too many people are getting sick at the same time.

We are still awaiting the peak of the epidemic in Europe: probably early April for Italy, mid-April for Germany and Switzerland, somewhere around that time for the UK. In the U.S., the infection has only just begun.

But until we’re past the peak, the only solution is to impose social restrictions.

And if your government is hesitating, these restrictions are up to you. Stay put. Do not travel. Cancel that family reunion, the promotion party and the big night out. This really sucks, but these are special times. Don’t take risks. Do not go to places where you are more than 20 people in the same room. It’s not safe and it’s not worth it.

But why the urgency, if most people survive?

Coronavirus Could Infect ‘Many Millions’ if U.S. Is Complacent, Expert Says

Read more
Read more

Here’s why: Fatality is the wrong yardstick. Catching the virus can mess up your life in many, many more ways than just straight-up killing you. “We are all young”—okay. “Even if we get the bug, we will survive”—fantastic. How about needing four months of physical therapy before you even feel human again. Or getting scar tissue in your lungs and having your activity level restricted for the rest of your life. Not to mention having every chance of catching another bug in hospital, while you’re being treated or waiting to get checked with an immune system distracted even by the false alarm of an ordinary flu. No travel for leisure or business is worth this risk.

Now, odds are, you might catch coronavirus and might not even get symptoms. Great. Good for you. Very bad for everyone else, from your own grandparents to the random older person who got on the subway train a stop or two after you got off. You’re fine, you’re barely even sneezing or coughing, but you’re walking around and you kill a couple of old ladies without even knowing it. Is that fair? You tell me.

My personal as well as professional view: we all have a duty to stay put, except for very special reasons, like, you go to work because you work in healthcare, or you have to save a life and bring someone to hospital, or go out to shop for food so you can survive. But when we get to this stage of a pandemic, it’s really important not to spread the bug. The only thing that helps is social restriction. Ideally, the government should issue that instruction and provide a financial fallback—compensate business owners, ease the financial load on everyone as much as possible and reduce the incentive of risking your life or the lives of others just to make ends meet. But if your government or company is slow on the uptake, don’t be that person. Take responsibility. For all but essential movement, restrict yourself.

This is epidemiology 101. It really sucks. It is extreme—but luckily, we don’t have pandemics of this violence every year. So sit it out. Stay put. Don’t travel. It is absolutely not worth it.

It’s the civic and moral duty of every person, everywhere, to take part in the global effort to reduce this threat to humanity. To postpone any movement or travel that are not vitally essential, and to spread the disease as little as possible. Have your fun in June, July and August when this—hopefully—is over. Stay safe. Good luck.

Greta Thunberg added to CNN expert coronavirus panel, Twitter erupts

An upcoming CNN town hall on the coronavirus pandemic will feature 17-year-old Greta Thunberg alongside a panel of medical experts .

The program, “Coronavirus Facts and Fears,” also includes CNN broadcaster Sanjay Gupta, 50, former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, 71 and former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Richard Besser, 60. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, 52, will host alongside Gupta.

However, social media watchdogs are foaming at the mouth over the choice to place a teen climate activist on a panel with public health experts.

“What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall?” asks Twitter rabble rouser Yashar Ali to his 618,000 followers. His rhetorical question was liked by more than 12,000 since this morning.

Her name is a top trending term on Twitter, with some 30,000 mentions on the platform in just a few hours.

In a follow-up tweet, Ali clarified his rhetorical tweet with an explanation: “I understand that but this is a panel of top health experts and administrators. A climate activist would be better suited on a different panel. She’s not a climate scientist. It’s a matter of placement.”

Former acting CDC director Richard Besser, former HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius and activist Greta Thunberg join @AndersonCooper & @DrSanjayGupta for a live #CNNTownHall. Coronavirus – Facts and Fears, Thursday at 8 p.m. ET pic.twitter.com/I4FrXgwaL6

CNN’s social media was soon served with an onslaught of virtual eye-rolls.

“Greta Thunberg? Now, she’s a COVID expert? @CNN is a joke!” reads a top response to the network’s Wednesday announcement.

“Not picking on the kid,” said another. “Picking on a ‘news’ network for featuring a child to inform the public.”

“I remember when my thread about E. coli in Romaine lettuce went viral and trended on Twitter only to have CNN put Food Babe on the air to discuss the issue,” tweeted Dr. Eugene Gu, referring to another controversial health “expert” in the media. “Greta Thunberg on this panel is an improvement from that at least.”

Some have come to Thunberg’s defense, including more than a few public figures, arguing that the voice of the youth, who will come to inherit an Earth doomed by future pandemics and climate disaster, may actually have something to add to the conversation.

“Unqualified men appear on cable all day every day, bloviating endlessly, but Greta Thunberg is a bridge too far? Ok,” tweeted writer Roxane Gay.

“She’s has extraordinary knowledge and she is the next generation that is left to clean this mess we’ve made. They wouldn’t have her there if she wasn’t a powerful voice,” wrote Oscar-winning actor Patricia Arquette.

“It’s a town hall, not a meeting of scientists,” another follower noted. “Some of their previous guests have been chef Jose Andres, director Spike Lee, author Laurie Garrett, etc etc.”

Thunberg has, perhaps wisely, been mum throughout this erupting social-media showdown. But she hasn’t spent the past three months lounging in lockdown. On April 30, UNICEF said that the young activist had launched a children-first campaign to help protect young lives against COVID-19, pledging a grant of €92,000 ($100,000), awarded to her by Danish NGO Human Act, toward the effort.

“Like the climate crisis, the coronavirus pandemic is a child-rights crisis,” said Thunberg. “It will affect all children, now and in the long-term, but vulnerable groups will be impacted the most. I’m asking everyone to step up and join me in support of UNICEF’s vital work to save children’s lives, to protect health and continue education.”

Fat People Should Eat Dirt If They Want To Lose Weight: Study

While everything from juice cleansers and soup diets have been linked to weight loss in the past, a new study claims eating dirt could be the latest way of flushing fat from the body.

Yes, really.

According to research published in the Pharmaceutical Research Journal by researchers from the University of South Australia, eating a side of a certain type of dirt with an evening meal could actually flush fat from the system. Researchers say obesity costs the global economy $2.78 trillion (US$2 trillion, UK£1.58 trillion) each year, but a PhD candidate has discovered that clay materials have the potential to “soak up” fat droplets in the gut.

While Tahnee Dening’s discovery was accidental, it could be a possible cure for obesity.


“It’s quite amazing really. I was investigating the capacity of specifically clay materials to improve the oral delivery and absorption of antipsychotic drugs, when I noticed that the clay particles weren’t behaving as I’d expected,” Dening said in a statement. “Instead of breaking down to release drugs, the clay materials were attacking fat droplets and literally soaking them up.”

Dening said that clay materials were trapping the fats within their particle structure and were also preventing them from being absorbed by the body by ensuring the fat simply passed through the digestive system.

“It’s this unique behaviour that immediately signalled we could be onto something significant – potentially a cure for obesity,” she said.

Obesity is a serious health issue around the world, increasing the risk of other major health risks including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even some cancers. Almost two thirds of Australian adults and one in four Aussie kids are overweight or obese, with half the world’s population expected to be overweight within 12 years.

The dirt in question is known as montmorillonite – a natural clay material purified from dirt and a synthetic clay called laponite. For the study, rats were fed either montmorillonite and a high-fat diet or a high-fat diet and a leading weight loss drug called orlistat. For two weeks, researchers analysed the rats and found that while both groups of rats experienced weight loss, the clay material proved more beneficial in aiding weight loss than the drug.

“Our processed clay has an unusually high surface area which means it has a huge capacity to interact with and soak up digested fats and oils present in the foods we eat,” Dening said. “Orlistat on the other hand, is an enzyme inhibitor that blocks up to 30 per cent of dietary fat digestion and absorption, which leads to weight loss, but has unpleasant side effects such as stomach aches, bloating, flatulence and diarrhoea, which limits its use in weight loss as people choose to stop using it.”

Researchers are now investigating whether using the clay material with orlistat could be an option for treating obesity in humans.

“We’re essentially attacking fat digestion and absorption in two different ways and we hope this will lead to greater weight loss with fewer side effects,” Dening added.

The clay material is safe for human consumption and is widely used in food products, with researchers hopeful clinical trials could start soon.

Harrowing video from a hospital at the center of Italy’s coronavirus outbreak shows doctors overwhelmed by critical patients

Stark footage from a hospital in Bergamo – the Italian city hit worst by the novel coronavirus – shows doctors and nurses desperately fighting to control the outbreak.

The video, broadcast Thursday by Sky News from the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital, shows an emergency-arrivals ward. It has been transformed into an intensive-care unit because the regular ICU is already full.

As of Friday morning, 4,645 people from Bergamo had tested positive for the virus, more cases than any other city or town in Italy, according to data published in the Corriere Della Sera newspaper. The exact number of deaths in Bergamo is not yet known.

Watch the Sky broadcast here:

The footage shows wards with more patients than they can handle and dozens of patients. The staff seem overwhelmed.

The hospital’s head of emergency care, Dr. Roberto Cosentini, told Sky News: “It’s a very severe pneumonia, and so it’s a massive strain for every health system, because we see every day 50 to 60 patients who come to our emergency department with pneumonia, and most of them are so severe they need very high volumes of oxygen.”

He added: “And so we had to reorganize our emergency room and our hospital – three levels of intensive care.”

Most of the city’s public services are in crisis.

On Wednesday night, 15 Italian military trucks were seen ferrying around 60 bodies from morgues across the city to cremation sites in 12 other Northern Italian cities after Bergamo’s mayor called for aid.

Several morgues and Bergamo’s sole crematorium, which can cremate 25 people a day, are overwhelmed.

Prohibited from holding services, churches have been used to store coffins. The gymnasium at Ponte San Pietro Hospital was turned into a makeshift mortuary.

Residents have been confined to their homes since March 8, when the government quarantined 16 million people in 14 provinces in Northern Italy, including Lombardy, the province which contains Bergamo.

The obituary pages of the L’Ecio Di Bergamo newspaper used to number two or three, now they regularly stretch to 10.

On Thursday, Stefano Fagiuoli, head of the hospital’s department of medicine, turned to Facebook to ask people to donate to help the hospital on GoFundMe.
