    "Patient Tests Positive For Coronavirus in Orange County in Third Known Case in US
    Cristina Laila by Cristina Laila January 26, 2020 62 Comments

    A patient has tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus in Orange County, California, in the third known case in the United States.

    The patient recently traveled from Wuhan, China, where the outbreak of the virus began, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency.........

    Senator Tom Cotton recently called on President Trump to put a moratorium on incoming flights from China."

    Was looking up what the CDC/WHO recommend for post-exposure prophalyxis (PEP) if you think you've been exposed to 2019-nCoV, or any other dangerous coronaviruses for that matter, and the answer seems to be basically 'nothing', except maybe wash with soap and water.

    Well that's damn unexceptable imo. So did a little scholarly googling and found this:
    https://www.researchgate.net/profile...9b0c41b2d8.pdf

    TL;DR version is that 1% povidone iodine kills 99.99% (log 4 reduction) of MERS CoV within 15 seconds. And povidone iodine 1% solution is FDA approved for use in the eyes, nose, and mouth/throat. Remember the headlines yesterday about the Chinese doctor that thought he caught it via his eyes? Well washing your hands is easy, but disinfecting your eyes, nose, and mouth is a little tougher still but do-able. So here's the supplies for making your own Wuhan Coronavirus PEP kit (or personal viral/bacterial decontamination kit if you prefer).



    Everything available from Amazon and/or your local drug store. I already had the supplies for making the povidone iodine eye and ear drops (see the instructions from the WHO here: https://www.medbox.org/local-small-s...s/download.pdf, very easy) since it's tough to get any antiviral or antibacterial eye/ear drops over-the-counter, and even if you do they expire pretty quickly. I went above and beyond the WHO recommendations for the eye drops, using IV saline (lower right, pre-filled IV flush syringes) and 0.22uM syringe filters (top center) for maximum sterility.

    The eye drops require the most supplies, but are shelf-stable at room temperature for 6 months once made (little eyedrop bottles next to the syringe filters). A couple drops in each eye is all that's needed, but be aware they will turn the whites of your eyes yellowish orange for a time. Disinfecting the nose and mouth is even easier, just mix up a 1% solution of povidone iodine using distilled water and store it in (clean) 5-hour energy plastic bottles (top left) and they're ready to use. Dip the baby swabs in it, then clean/coat the inside of each nostril (or use a nasal sprayer, or nettie pot). After cleaning each nostril for at least 15 seconds, swish/gargle with the rest for the same amount of time, and spit it out.

    This *might* offer some additional protection, for a short time, above that of mask and glasses/googles alone, if you have to go where you think you could be exposed. That's only speculation on my part though. Anyway, might be good to have for this or some future pandemic, povidone iodine is a very strong antimicrobial that kills many bacteria, viruses, and fungi. If anyone wants links to any of the items or more directions on making it let me know.

    Yes for business, at a time in my life I wanted to be an english teacher and see the country. A lot of China's "medical" sectors focus on TCM or Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbal drips and cocktails put into IVs, leafwraps etc. Much of this is still seen as superior to modern medical practices; this is in part due to cultural and philosophical norms.

    This is not to say that all places in China are like I've described, most of the 1st tier cities and Economic Zones like Beijing, Honk Kong, etc have a more modern approach however lower tier cities and provinces are a start contrast especially given how lax food is regulated.

    If this information is accurate, we might be in a bit of trouble.

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-...tion-rate.html

    Earlier today, the Taiwan media began reporting on a new mainland Chinese study that specifically looked at the individuals involved in this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. We have a partial translation and link below. According to this news, which is widely circulating in the Taiwan press and is based on a study published in The Lancet, the Wuhan coronavirus fatality rate has leaped to 15%, and the infection rate among those exposed is 83%.

    “The more we learn about it, the greater the possibility is that transmission will not be able to be controlled with public health measures,” said Dr. Allison McGeer, a Toronto-based infectious disease specialist who contracted SARS in 2003 and who helped Saudi Arabia control several hospital-based outbreaks of MERS.

    If that’s the case, she said, “we’re living with a new human virus, and we’re going to find out if it will spread around the globe.” McGeer cautioned that because the true severity of the outbreak isn’t yet known, it’s impossible to predict what the impact of that spread would be, though she noted it would likely pose significant challenges to health care facilities.
