CV Central - 3/2/2020 - "Neurological Impact, Case Spread, and Outbreak Modeling"
/

It's a sobering Episode 19 where we start by looking at rapid worldwide progression of the Covid-19 pandemic.  We start by evaluating risk factors to have a better understand of this disease, noting the elevated cancer, diabetes, and obesity numbers, as well as having a larger elderly population, suggest our vulnerable population percentage may be higher than China.  Two new articles are covered in exhaustive detail cataloging both that Covid may behave like AIDS in actively suppressing the immune system, and detailing how that function could be causing people to literally forget to breathe due to neurological damage that appears likely to be enduring as Covid has been demonstrated to breach the blood-brain barrier.  The CDC continues its string of bungled quarantines and releasing sick patients to the general public as we compliment the FDA for higher competence in working to get test kits out there, and we look at a promising serological test which can potentially identify those previously, or perhaps in remission, with their illnes that is being developed in Singapore.  We look at evidence spread happened sooner, wider, and more often than predicted, offering our own modeling to better understand the disease.  Clusters appear to be revealing themselves in Seattle, San Francisco, and Toronto, as new cases hit Florida and New York.  We assess which areas are at highest risk based on the evidence.  Make sure you get masks and keep them on, as well as eye protection, your life may depend upon it.
