SPEAKING CAN TRANSMIT CORONAVIRUS DUE TO TINY DROPLETS OF SALIVA, NIH STUDY SUGGESTS 

 

arly results of a study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) suggest that coronavirus can be transmitted through the air from tiny saliva droplets that are expelled when people speak.

Although the research is yet to be published or peer reviewed, the preliminary findings could have major implications in developing strategies for halting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Monday letter from the study's authors.

"Further studies are needed to assess the viral titer [concentrations] present in speech-induced droplets in asymptomatic COVID-19 positive persons, but our results suggest that speaking can indeed be a major mode of SARS-CoV-2 transmission," wrote the researchers.

The study used laser imaging to detect thousands of droplets ejected when a person said the words "stay healthy." Researchers said that although droplets produced during speech are tiny, they can transmit a broad range of respiratory diseases. Speech is also said to produce more droplets than coughing, which may be a more obvious mode of transmission.

"Droplets emitted while speaking are much smaller than those emitted when coughing or sneezing," the researchers wrote. "Nonetheless they are sufficiently large to carry a variety of respiratory pathogens, including the measles virus, influenza virus, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Moreover, multiple studies have shown that speaking actually produces significantly more droplets than coughing."

Police demand spit guards to protect them from coronavirus thugs who try to cough in their face during lockdown 

 

Spit guards should be carried by all frontline police to protect officers from thugs spitting and coughing at them during the coronavirus pandemic, a senior figure has demanded.

Sergeant Simon Kempton, the operational lead for Covid-19 at the Police Federation, told MPs the virus was being 'weaponised' by criminals after dozens of such assaults in recent weeks.

He said: 'Now more than ever, while Covid-19 is being weaponised, we need those spit guards in the pocket of every single police officer, not just in custody, on the street as well.'

Los Angeles has notoriously polluted air. But right now it has some of the cleanest of any major city 

 

The mental image many people have of the Los Angeles skyline is one obscured by smog, with thick air pollution hanging over its downtown buildings.

But with the city -- and the entire state of California -- under stay-at-home orders to stem the deadly outbreak of coronavirus, something dramatic has happened to the air in LA.
On Tuesday, LA saw some of the cleanest air of any major city in the world, according to IQAir, a Swiss air quality technology company which also monitors pollution levels in cities around the globe.

EPA data shows that in March of this year, the Los Angeles area experienced the longest stretch of "good" air quality since at least 1995.

SNL's Michael Che Loses Grandmother to Coronavirus Pandemic 

 

Saturday Night Live mainstay Michael Che has lost his grandmother to the coronavirus pandemic, the comedian revealed Monday afternoon. In a sizable post on Instagram, Che revealed the news while warning others to begin taking the pandemic seriously, telling his hundreds of thousands of followers to adhere by any rules and regulations local governments may have in place at this time.

"Hi, I'm Michael Che, from TV. Last night my grandmother passed away from the coronavirus," Che writes in the post. "I'm doing ok, considering. I'm obviously very hurt and angry that she had to go through all that pain alone. But I'm also happy that she's not in pain anymore. And I also feel guilty for feeling happy. Basically the whole gamut of complex feelings everybody else has losing someone very close and special. I'm not unique. But its still scary."

Cuomo urges the NYPD to be 'more aggressive' in breaking up funerals, large gatherings and people 'playing Frisbee in the park' as he raises fines to $1,000 for people who flout social distancing rules 

 

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is urging the NYPD to be more aggressive in breaking up large gatherings, including funerals, as people continue to flout social distancing guidance rules.

On Monday, he announced he was increasing fines for individuals caught breaking the rules from $500 to $1,000 and said it was 'everyone's responsibility' not to be reckless.

New York is seeing its curve flatten - the death rate is slowing for the first time in weeks and while the number of cases and infections is still growing, it means social distancing has been effective until now.

Cuomo has extended the state-wide lockdown on non-essential businesses until the end of April and is telling people not to become 'over confident' because of the new figures.

Elton John Donates $1 Million to AIDS Foundation’s Coronavirus Emergency Fund 

 

Elton John is launching a $1 million coronavirus emergency relief fund through his AIDS Foundation, he announced on Saturday.

“For almost 30 years, my foundation has prioritized the most vulnerable people to HIV to end the AIDS epidemic, and we’re committed to this during the COVID-19 crisis, too. Distributing medicines, testing and preventive treatment is not as simple as it was a few weeks ago. So, our new COVID-19 emergency fund will help frontline partners prepare for and respond to the pandemic and its effects on HIV prevention and care for the most marginalized communities,” he said in a video posted to his Twitter account.

Some may joke about a coronavirus baby boom. Here's why you shouldn't try to conceive in quarantine 

 

As much of the world settles into a new routine of social distancing, couples are likely to have a lot more free time at home to snuggle together.

At first blush, you might think couples with some extra time on their hands would do things that could lead to a stork visiting nine months from now.
Yet with US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warning of dire scenarios and a possible 20% unemployment rate, couples whose jobs are vulnerable in this economy are likely to think again about kicking off their parenting journeys this spring.

Then there's the possibility of more couples splitting up. One marriage registry official in China said he saw a quarantine-related spike in divorces, showing that more time in closed quarters may be doing some couples more harm than good.

But for couples weathering this storm together, is this a time when many will choose to add to their brood?

The Coronavirus’s Unique Threat to the South
More young people in the South seem to be dying from COVID-19. Why?
 

In a matter of weeks, the coronavirus has gone from a novel, distant threat to an enemy besieging cities and towns across the world. The burden of COVID-19 and the economic upheaval wrought by the measures to contain it feel epochal. Humanity now has a common foe, and we will grow increasingly familiar with its face.

Yet plenty of this virus’s aspects remain unknown. The developing wisdom—earned the hard way in Wuhan, Washington, and Italy—has been that older people and sicker people are substantially more likely to suffer severe illness or die from COVID-19 than their younger, healthier counterparts. Older people are much more likely than young people to have lung disease, kidney disease, hypertension, or heart disease, and those conditions are more likely to transform a coronavirus infection into something nastier. But what happens when these assumptions don’t hold up, and the young people battling the pandemic share the same risks?

White House: Americans should avoid grocery shopping as coronavirus hits apex 

 

The White House coronavirus task force is now warning against even going out to buy groceries or medication as the pandemic is expected to hit a deadly apex in the coming two weeks.

“The next two weeks are extraordinarily important,” White House coronavirus response coordinator Deborah Birx warned at a press conference late Saturday.

“This is the moment to not be going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, but doing everything you can to keep your family and your friends safe,” Birx warned.

Bronx Zoo tiger tests positive for coronavirus 

 

The coronavirus is infecting New Yorkers of all stripes.

A 4-year-old Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the COVID-19 bug after developing a dry cough, the Wildlife Conservation Society said in a statement Sunday.

“Nadia, a 4-year-old female Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo, has tested positive for COVID-19. She, her sister Azul, two Amur tigers, and three African lions had developed a dry cough and all are expected to recover,” the statement read.
The diagnosis was confirmed by USDA’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Iowa “out of an abundance of caution,” the society said.

The big cats are on the mend, the WCS said.

430,000 people have traveled from China to the US since the COVID-19 outbreak appeared – including nearly 40,000 who arrived after President Trump imposed travel restrictions 

 

At least 430,000 people have traveled from China to the United States on direct flights since the COVID-19 disease surfaced last year - with nearly 40,000 arriving in the two months after President Trump imposed travel restrictions.

Additionally, there were more than 1,300 direct passenger flights and 381,000 travelers arriving to the United States from China in January. Around a quarter were Americans.

The New York Times reports that thousands of these passengers flew directly from China as US health officials were just beginning to gauge the severity of the outbreak.

The first reported cases of coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China, at the end of last year.

Texas City Mandates People Wear Masks in Public or Face $1,000 Fines 

 

Should you wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic? The city of Laredo, Texas, has decided that yes, you do. And if you don’t wear one, they could fine you.

The city’s emergency mandate, which went into effect on April 2, states that every person over the age of five must wear “some form of covering over their nose and mouth” when using public transportation, taxis, ride shares, pumping gas or when inside a building open to the public. That face covering can include a homemade mask, scarf, bandana or handkerchief. The penalty for violating the order is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine up to $1,000.

This 7-year-old is making and delivering care packages to the elderly shut in by the coronavirus 

 

Cavanaugh Bell is a 7-year-old on a mission: "To help other people and let them know that I got their back," he told CNN.

At a time when senior citizens must stay in to avoid the coronavirus, the spirited boy in Gaithersburg, Maryland, decided to make them care packages.

"The packages include toilet paper, some flushable wipes, hygiene products and a bunch of food," he said.

'She's my best friend'

The idea came when Bell realized his 74-year-old grandmother is in a high-risk age group for coronavirus.

SF outlaws reusable bags, which the city once championed 

 

San Francisco, which once championed reusable shopping bags to reduce plastic waste, has banned the environmentally friendly totes in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

An amendment to the city’s Department of Health’s social-distancing protocols requires that stores restrict customers from bringing their own bags, mugs or other reusable items from home.

How the ban affects city's prohibition on plastic bags is not clear — the ordinance did not address that regulation. In 2007, San Francisco became the first major city in the nation to outlaw single-use plastic bags.
