Photo credit John Mark Smith Dear Carol: Over the past few years, my parents have had two strokes and one broken hip between them. They both have recovered and are doing fine for people in their 80s. Their in-home care services have remained reasonably stable even during this COVID-19 epidemic. I'm the problem. I can’t shake the feeling that another health emergency is just around the corner. I understand that expecting that there will be more emergencies is only realistic, but this thinking that I'll be called out to handle something horrible is keeping me from enjoying the fact that things are going well ...

This is of course the new moral panic. The ridiculous and bizarre Q-Anon phenomenon has some number of millions of people believing that there is a global conspiracy of prominent Democratic politicians, Hollywood stars and rich people that kidnaps and rapes children, then murders them and extracts a substance from their blood that gives people eternal youth, or something like that; and that God Emperor Ronald T. Dump is going to blow the lid off the whole thing any day now. (Gee I wonder what he's been waiting for.) While that is generally not given credence by sane people, the perpetrators have been trying to mainstr...

CONCLUSIONS: The distribution of sexually acquired HCV was sparsely scattered across countries/cities in the Asia-Pacific region. The threat of overlapping risk differed by locations, whereas transnational outbreaks remained uncommon. The paucity of information has hindered progress with comprehensive assessment in the Asia-Pacific region, where seroprevalence of HCV among HIV-positive MSM was relatively high.

This study extracted information from a case in Italy and a case in South Korea during COVID-19 pandemic. Epidemic threat evolved differently in Italy compared to that in South Korea. Case fatality ratios from Italy and South Korea were consistently diverging over time. It appears that 'epi-epidemic' determinants can strongly influence the epidemic burden in the communities.

In this study, we aimed to address cancer-related operations during the COVID-19 outbreak. We retrospectively reviewed 26 patients who had undergone cancer surgeries admitted from March 13 to May 13, 2020, during the COVID-19 epidemic at Istanbul Bagcilar Training and Research Hospital, as a pandemic hospital. A total of 26 cases of COVID-19 were enrolled in the study. Seventeen (65%) were female, and 9 (35%) were male. The mean age was 52.4 (range 28 –74). The mean body mass index (BMI) is 27.8 kg/m2 (range 17.6 –34.0). Eight of them had comorbidities. 7 patients needed an intensive care unit (ICU). Only ...

Opioid prescriptions have been implicated as one of the proximate causes of the national opioid epidemic. Children and adolescents and their families are at risk for increased opioid exposure through prescriptions after surgery. In pediatric urologic surgery, indications for postoperative opioids can vary widely and a focus on opioid stewardship is important to reduce potential harms.

by Justin C. Smith Molldrem and Smith’s thoughtful article “Reassessing the Ethics of Molecular HIV Surveillance in the Era of Cluster Detection and Response: Toward HIV Data Justice,” calls attention to vitally important considerations in the implementation of molecular HIV surveillance (MHS) in HIV cluster detection response (CDR) efforts. The authors are rightly concerned with the myriad ethical questions posed by how these efforts are carried out, and they echo concerns that some members of the HIV advocacy community in the United States have raised.…
