Crona virus information is changing by the minutes we're back with another episode this is healthcare triage news despite of the new corona virus has continued with a number of cases showing up in countries like Iran Italy and South Korea as of taping we have 233

Confirmed cases and 12 deaths here in the United States while it might appear the cases are suddenly exploding here in the United States keep in mind that the numbers jumped up from zero in no time because we just started testing for the

Virus here examination of data from China has revealed potential demographic trends according to this preliminary data it appears that those under 30 have not been as heavily affected as those between the ages of 30 and 79 around 8

Percent of infections have been in individuals in their 20s and that drops to about one percent for teens and younger children fatality rates appear to be highest than individuals above 80 years of age and in those with

Underlying health conditions fatality rates may be slightly higher for men though it's unclear if this would be due to behavioral or biological factors of the 70 2314 patient records examined in this data set 61.8% were confirmed cases

And 80 point nine percent of those were considered mild we'd also like to note here that we are in no way minimizing the importance of high-risk groups such as the elderly or immunocompromised specifying which groups are at high risk

Is important for purposes of intervention and treatment let's talk about face masks unless you're currently sick caring for someone who is sick or you are a health care professional stop buying them they aren't that

Effective in preventing infection outside of health care settings if you are sick they are useful in limiting your spread of germs but otherwise the run on face masks is just going to cause a shortage for the health care workers

That are repeatedly in direct contact with sick patients in general gloves are not unnecessary purchase either so is there anything you should buy it's advisable to plan ahead in case you get sick if you have refillable

Prescriptions consider picking them up early check in your stocks of basic health supplies and non prescription drugs the Department of Homeland Security recommends a two-week supply of food and water but don't panic by keep

In mind that many of these practices were advisable before the corona virus came on the scene for example having a couple weeks of food and health supplies on hand is helpful if you get the flu or if you

Live in an area prone to weather-related difficulties we try to keep some water frozen steaks and staples in the house just in case there's a bad storm making travel difficult for a while it's the same idea last but not least there is no

Known substance that will reduce your risk of contracting this virus and no known substance to cure it this includes zinc vitamin C echinacea sesame oil a silver solution being sold by a certain televangelist up to $300 a

Bundle etc etc it is also important to note that antibiotics are useless in this particular war because antibiotics do not work against viruses here's what you can do even though you probably know this by now because I and others have

Been saying this on a loop wash your hands off and for at least 20 seconds each time stop touching your face we do that a lot more than we think clean surfaces you use often including your cell phone and if at all possible

Stay home if you're sick etc etc in terms of continuing the virus here in the United States we will need to get a better handle on matters of testing and quarantine in addition you will be helpful if everyone had access

To paid sick leave a 14-day self quarantine is next to impossible for people living paycheck to paycheck with no paid sick days access to affordable health care would also be helpful some measures to this end have

Been taken like New York's recent directive Weaving cost-sharing for coronavirus testing but as you may have seen in my recent Twitter ads this is necessary but not nearly sufficient as a recent box article pointed out things

Would need to get a lot worse before this reached the level of the swine flu pandemic in 2009 where schools did close but no US cities were ordered to shut down so again be aware be prepared but don't subject yourself to undue panic
