Advice from a nurse

From a nurse who is treating coronavirus victims.

Unless they are acutely short of breath , they donít need to do much .

Unless you have a fever greater than 101 , acute sob and a dry cough , itís unlikely they will test you .

Treat symptoms symptomatically .

Cough,mucinex or whatever you use as a cough medicine .

Tylenol for your fever . Lots of fluid intake . Wash your hands and donít cough on people .

There is still an acute shortage of tests and resources are limited .

If they feel they have all of those symptoms , they need to see their gp (call ahead ) or urgent care.

We are being overwhelmed with people who have symptoms but could easily have been treated in the community.

FACTS

1)Coronavirus is 20x more deadly than the flu

2)Flu mortality rate is approx 0.1%

3)Coronavirus mortality rate is approx 2-3% - seems higher in Italy and France possibly

4)Coronavirus is VERY contagious, probably way more contagious than the flu though there is no figure put on this as yet

5) Donald Trump is NOT an expert on viruses. The CDC lady IS. She has called for schools to be shut down but was allegedly overridden by President Trump. Do not think all is fine because of what Donald Trump says.

6)We DONT KNOW how many people have it in the USA because so LITTLE testing is going on - very few people have been tested at all, and the CDC bodged a lot of its initial tests so people are having to be re-tested anyhow - this was what happened with the one case of "community infection" found where we do not know how that person got Coronavirus - they have had it for about a week because the first test was bodged and registered negative)

7)Washing your hands thoroughly, avoiding touching your face and avoiding contact with anyone who is coughing/sneezing are still the best ways to avoid it
