Coronavirus 13.0

If you would like to learn more about the Coronavirus, Dr. Jannuzzi has lots of Facebook posts that are public (and there are many of them), They contain some opinions as well as facts and he thought it best to use that vehicle rather than the website. So if you have 7 hours of time to spare, go check them out! There have been 4 pediatric deaths from a new syndrome first reported last week. It’s being called Pediatric Multi Inflammatory Disorder. Always so tragic losing children. Three in NY and one in NJ. One of the deaths from Westchester county is being re-evaluated for other causes. It’s still not entirely clear if the syndrome is COVID related. Not all children with the syndrome have a history of COVID and the illness is occurring at a later point from...

COVID 12.0

Posted by on Mar 29, 2020 in Blog | 0 comments

As the cases explode up it’s critical to remember that this is not all exponential growth. It’s more like getting a census of where we are. That’s what mass testing does for you. The US leads the world in testing and therefore leads the world in cases. Makes perfect sense. When the H1N1 pandemic started we did the same thing. Once we realized it was so prevalent we stopped testing and began using estimates. This disease is prevalent but likely has been for weeks, maybe months. We will never find all cases because mild and asymptomatic people escape notice altogether. Probably thousands of recovered people walking around now as well. If we use estimates like we do for flu our denominator is more reflective of how the death and severity rates actually play out. As Dr Fauci said likely...

Coronavirus 11.0

Anthony Fauci, lead author and others wrote in an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, March 26th “if one assumes the number of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical impact of COVID 19 may be more akin to that of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of 0.1%) That’s Dr. Fauci. In the New England Journal. Not me. It’s not an unreasonable assumption either. You can’t read that and still be as terrified of this as most people are. It will be interesting to see how the media does or does not pick this up. Further in this article, it’s estimated to spread from 1 person to...
