CONCLUSION: The prodromal symptoms of COVID-19 were mild and most patients did not have limitations of daily activity. Viral shedding from URT was high from the prodromal phase. Radiological pneumonia was common from the early days of illness, but it was frequently not evident in simple CXR. These findings could be plausible explanations for the easy and rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the community. PMID: 32242348 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract The outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused a worldwide pandemic. Less than 6 weeks after the first confirmed cases in Korea, the patient number exceeded 5,000, which overcrowded limited hospital resources and forced confirmed patients to stay at home.

Herein, we report results of the initial management of patients at one of the largest CTC in Korea. A total of 309 patients were admitted to o...

It discusses the case study of ONE myeloma patient, in Wuhan, who was given an immunosuppressant drug, a monoclonal antibody, called tocilizumab. Here’s th...

Salviati: John tortured a puppy.Simplicio: So what? Freddy stole a marshmallow.I suppose you could call this whataboutism, and it is a common debating tactic of people who have no arguments on their side.I am well aware, as I have affirmed here before, that numerous elected officials were wrongly sanguine about the coronavirus threat for a time, and/or delayed too long in taking mitigating measures. This includes politicians of both parties. Most of them, with the notable exception of 8 Republican governors who are still trying to kill their constituents, came around to the view that the crisis was real, and took strong ac...
