CONCLUSION: recommendations emphasize isolation, proper rest, sleep, nutrition, hydration, medications, and in the more severe cases, oxygen support, monitoring of vital signs, emotional support, and multiprofessional and individualized care. Medications should be used with caution due to a lack of evidence. Future research is needed to analyze the impact of the infection at the beginning of pregnancy and the psychological aspects of pregnant women infected with the virus.

CONCLUSION: the number of infected patients will continue to increase. Chile needs to remain vigilant and adjust the strategies around the prevention and control measures. The behavior of the population plays a fundamental role. We suggest not relaxing restrictions and further improving epidemiological surveillance. Emergency preparations are needed and more resource elements need to be added to the current health support. This prediction is provisional and depends on keeping all intervening variables constant. Any alteration will modify the prediction. PMID: 32609283 [PubMed - in process]

Death by COVID-19 is mainly due to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), although heart and multiple organ failure may contribute [1]. Underlying mechanisms are COVID-19-induced endothelial alteration, cytokine storm, inflammation, exudation in the lungs, and vessel occlusion.

COVID-19 is an illness caused by infection with a new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that is associated with a systemic inflammatory response, with activation of coagulation in patients who develop clinical disease. The coronavirus infection favors the appearance of thrombotic events of varying severity in different territories and has the capacity to produce coagulopathies and even disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) [1,2]. The possibility of coagulopathies makes it advisable to consider antithrombotic strategies such as the use of low molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) at specific prophylactic or treatment doses depend...

When Rob Master spent a week debilitatingly ill with COVID-19, lying “barely lucid” on a pull-out couch in his family’s home in Larchmont, N.Y., his wife, Lori, cared for him every day. But somehow, despite exposure to Rob’s serious illness, Lori never tested positive for the virus. Master, an athletic 49-year-old with no underlying health problems, says he wants his story to be “a public service announcement” to other healthy men who may think they’re at low risk of contracting a serious case of coronavirus. As Master knows too well, the reality is just the opposite: data from mul...
