The prevention and treatment of tetanus in developing countries should arouse widespread concern in society. PMID: 32258151 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we examined paratuberculosis cases among 2-4-year-old dairy cows at farms in Shandong Province, China. Paratuberculosis cases were diagnosed based on clinical symptoms, pathological autopsy, and histopathological inspection. Characteristics of paratuberculosis in the affected dairy cattle included poor body condition, persistent diarrhea, subcutaneous edema, granulomatous ileitis (multibacillary), mesenteric lymphadenitis, and hepatitis. Acid-fast bacilli from fecal specimens and lymphocytes were putatively identified as MAP based on Ziehl-Neelsen staining, then confirmed using polymerase chain reaction-base...

(WASHINGTON) — In a first, small step toward reopening the country, the Trump administration issued new guidelines Wednesday to make it easier for essential workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 to get back to work if they do not have symptoms of the coronavirus.

(NEW YORK) — As the coronavirus bore down on New York, Dr. Doug Bass’ family begged him to work from home. He refused, pointing to his patients at Phoenix House, a drug and alcohol treatment center where he served as medical director. “He said he was on the front lines and they needed him,” his brother, Jonathan Bass, told The Associated Press. “Too many people relied on him.” Bass, 64, died suddenly last month after suffering symptoms commonly caused by coronavirus, including coughing, a fever and severe stomach cramping. That made him possibly the first physician still treating patient...

There is plenty of anxiety. And many patients have made appointments with a request to be tested. But the answers they have been getting are confusing and often frustrating as well. What should you do if you think you have COVID-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus aka SARS-CoV-2)? The first step is figuring out if you need to go to the emergency department. If you are feeling short of breath and/or having trouble breathing, this is definitely an indication (or a reason) to go to your nearest emergency department for evaluation.

BOSTON (CBS) — TPA is a drug that is used to help stroke and heart attack victims. It works by breaking up or busting blood clots. Doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are now using it in a clinical trial on gravely ill coronavirus patients. “There’s a lot of very small blood clots accumulating in the lungs of these patients,” said Dr. Christopher Barrett. “And that seems to be at least contributory, if not the predominant reason, that their respiratory failure is so bad.” Dr. Barrett says TPA could help patients recover faster, free up ventilators and even prevent people from...
