COVID19 in Ohio due to people not social-distancing or wearing masks. So much for flattening the curve. The Governor of Ohio is closing things back up and have the Stay at Home orders in place, Their have been 9,779 new cases within the last two weeks, A 73% jump, That is crazy scary. Too many people are letting their guard down, and as a result these cases are sky rocketing. Unfortunately it is the younger ones getting infected. Ohio isn't the only state with a jump in COVID19 cases. Their have been so many jobs lost and businesses closing, Unemployment rates have gone up drastically. This has been the worst Recession we have ever seen. I honestly don't think things will get better anytime soon. Where do we go from here? No one wants to go back to lockdown, but I think it's inevitable. Even before states began to emerge from their lockdowns, Experts were already trying to figure out what cocktail of interventions that they could turn to should cases spiral again without having to rely on Stay-at-home measures. They had hoped to have more precise intervention - whether focused only on certain communities, business sectors or designed to protect the most vulnerable - could put out flare ups of cases, A way to balance preventing the spread of COVID19 from swamping health systems while still sustaining some semblance of society and economic activity. Now states are going to find out if more targeted approaches can work. If they don't, and if people don't embrace other basic precautions like masking and distancing it could require governors to reinstate even more restrictions. If communities can't control the outbreaks, What might be left is another Stay-at-Home order. The challenge is, It can take some time to know if the interventions are working, Unfortunately we don't have time, Numbers are going up. Public health experts say, It's like a piece of swiss cheese. One slice - say, suspending sporting events - prevents some transmission, but the virus still has lots of holes to pass through, meaning lots of holes for the virus to transmit. By layering slices - promoting masks no theatre or concerts, limiting group activities, dining mostly outside - The idea is to stack enough strategies to cover up the holes left by any one slice and to block the amount of virus that can get through. People in their 20's and 30's are also accounting for greater proportions of new infections, Possibly a mutation of the COVID19 disease. Leading to believe that the younger crowd aren't wearing masks or social distancing, and packing into bars, being unsafe. There is an incredible stress on the health system and they predict it to get a lot worse in the near future. There is great worry for the Fourth of July weekend, We shall see the numbers, Please stay safe, and let's all social - distance. This Coronavirus will run loose when given the chance. It's not just the lungs that this virus attacks, The virus enters the cells in your system through a process called endocytosis, In which the cell surface surrounds the virus and ushers it inside. This takes only 10 minutes to occur. Once inside, The virus uses the cell's protein - making machinery to make hundreds of copies of itself. This overwhelms the cell, and eventually causes it's death. The hostile viral takeover can cause different symptoms in different parts of the body. Damage to the cells in the Nasal epithelium can cause patients to lose their sense of smell and taste. Direct damage to cells in the heart can cause arrhythmia and cardiac dysfunction. About one-third of all patients complain of gastrointestinal symptoms. Damage to the GI Tract could explain why some patients complain of abdominal pain, diarrhea and nausea. Patients also develop acute renal failure. This could be caused by direct damage to the Kidney cells or by a hyperactive immune reaction. Also has other reactions including the Pancreas and Gallbladder. It can even cause lack of blood flow to your intestines. We definitely have a long way to go.
