    Mask demand met by glove company NEWS by: Amanda Lee Posted: Mar 22, 2020 / 02:40 AM EDT / Updated: Mar 22, 2020 / 02:40 AM EDT ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — ‘Guardian Healthcare Providers’ was running low on hospital face masks and turned to ‘Brookville Glove Manufacturing’ for help. Its no surprise that medical face masks are in high demand and low supply. Guardian has 67 facilities throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Last week they struggled to find medical safety masks for their 8,000 employees. On Monday, Brookville Gloves decided to switch their production to help nursing homes fight the coronavirus. Emily Walker, Marketing Coordinator at Brookville Gloves says “my employees are super grateful to be able to make such a big impact and I believe Brookville Gloves has a history in the past and actually did something similar way back for World War II.” CEO of Guardian Healthcare , Barmi Akbar says since they sent out a message to Brookville Gloves, the Brookville Gloves team has been working overtime, making sure they get masks to the healthcare workers who need them. “The workers at Brookville lost their ability to work all night on Friday and is stepping in to work all weekend. It is going to make an impact on thousands of lives because the shortage is that serious. They are making an impact on thousands of lives in Pennsylvania by doing this” says Akbar. The staff at Brookville Gloves has been shipping masks to hospitals in Pittsburgh and Butler County. They say they’ll do anything to help, especially in a crisis like this. Brookville Gloves is working on making 20,000 more masks and they say they’re open to helping out other facilities during this time.

    My wife likes to do crafts and so with the Coronavirus and her being a RN she decided to make some masks. These are thick cloth masks. She is always doing some kind of craft project. My Granddaughter likes hers.

    CUrrently, there are 7 known coronaviruses that infect human, Four of them are a cause of the common cold. SARS and MERS are 2 more. COVID-19 is the 7th. Corona simply describes their appearance. But, While they are coronaviruses, they belong to different grouping. A good analogy is comparing Ford pickup trucks. A gas-powered Ford Ranger and a diesel F350 are versions of a Ford pickup. They look similar and have similar uses. However, they definitely do not have the same capabilities. Under the appearance, they have completely different engines, suspensions, frames, etc. They perform completely differently. COVID-19 vs the common-cold coronaviruses may act vastly different. They may enter the cell differently, replicate differently, produce different enzymes, use different parts of the host cells, different RNA strand type, escape the host cell differently, prefer different cell hosts, etc. So no, COVID-19 is not a common-cold virus. The main point of confusion caused by news articles comparing COVID-19 to the other coronaviruses that cause the common-cold solely based in the fact they all are coronaviruses but failed to adequately cover any potential differences. I am am fairly certain, other than Sanibel and I, few people bothered to explore and have the understanding of what makes COVID-19 different from the other coronavirus. My wife is a RN with over 30 years experience, which means I know a ton of other RNs since nurse tend to run in herds. I get it that you are proud of your daughter. That said, I am hardly likely to get detailed infectious disease information from a nurse, unless they are specifically ID trained, especially for a new disease. Even most physicians struggle with the details of this new disease. I have a family member that is a residency-trained infectious disease pharmacist and a friend that is an infectious disease physician. Both are in the Boston area. I gather a lot of information from them. Neither has described it as a 'common cold'. They are both 'horrified' at the amount of disinformation/incorrect information even within the medical community. Personally, it just drives me nuts when I hear people shrug it off as a common cold. The title alone of this post leads people to the wrong conclusion. Below are couple of links that can lead one to better investigation. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/types.html https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-coronavirus-common-cold/claim-the-new-coronavirus-is-a-common-cold-idUSKBN2142MC (does lead to other references)

    FDA approves new test that could detect coronavirus in less than 1 hour Updated: 4:42 PM EDT Mar 21, 2020 Wesley Bruer, CNN Play Video SHOW TRANSCRIPT CNN — The US Food and Drug Administration announced it has approved the use of the first rapid diagnostic test that could detect coronavirus in approximately 45 minutes. The authorization was made Friday and tests will begin shipping next week, according to a statement from California-based Cepheid, the company manufacturing the "During this time of increased demand for hospital services, Clinicians urgently need an on-demand diagnostic test for real-time management of patients being evaluated for admission to health-care facilities," said Dr. David Persing, MD, Ph.D., chief medical and technology officer at Cepheid. "An accurate test delivered close to the patient can be transformative -- and help alleviate the pressure that the emergence of the 2019-nCoV outbreak has put on healthcare facilities that need to properly allocate their respiratory isolation resources," Persing added. This story is breaking and will be updated. SEE VIDEO REPORT ; https://www.wtae.com/article/fda-approves-new-test-that-could-detect-coronavirus-in-less-than-an-hour/31852180

    More elaborate meals is right. Healthier too. Was going with the son for leeks today but it was a little too cold for our taste. Tied some flies (streamers). Cleaned the inside of the truck. Took the dog for a good run after supper. The Orange Holdover tomatoes collected last fall are peeking out of the starting medium. Whoot Whoot.

    Oh, I do but how much sense does it make to take bathrooms, a place to get clean and rest from those who are moving the supplies that keep you fed and in toilet paper? What would happen if one third of the truck drivers came down with this virus because of compromised immune systems due to lack of proper facilities. Truckers don't lead the healthiest lifestyles in the first place? Can you drive a truck? Are you willing to get on the road to bring in needed supplies to the hospital or the markets? Or are you just going to sit back and pontificate? We forget who makes the country run. It isn't politicians. I always think about coal miners. They had a dirty, dangerous job and it probably ultimately killed or shortened the lives of most of them. Why did they do it? Because they had to or starve. People do what has to be done and damn the consequences. You don't cut your lifeline. Give the truckers their bathrooms. What are you going to do if they go on strike? And don't tell Wolf about truck stops or he'll shut those down too. Or has he?

    Ask yourself who owns the porta-john companies they are installing. Follow the money. One person in an hazmat suit if need be to clean the rest stops would certainly be far more economical than renting porta johns. These drivers NEED to be taken care of. Without them we are all up the creek. And LFG: Wolf is a lame-duck. He's gone after this term.

    Is our governor and PennDOT really short sighted as the rest area debacle makes them look. The rest areas have indoor plumbing but they want to rent port a potties and hand sanitizer stations. Like another poster mentioned port a potties have limits. No common sense!

    Allegheny Patient at Jefferson Hospital 1st fatal covid-19 case in Allegheny County Jacob Tierney And Megan Guza | Saturday, March 21, 2020 11:15 a.m. Email Newsletters TribLIVE's Daily and Weekly email newsletters deliver the news you want and information you need, right to your inbox. Allegheny County recorded its first coronavirus death on Saturday, the second death in the state since Pennsylvania saw its first case two weeks ago. The person was in their late 60s and being treated at Jefferson Hospital, officials said. County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said the family of the deceased asked that officials provide no further information. The death came as the number of positive cases statewide jumped nearly 40% from 268 to 371 in one day. In Allegheny County, health officials reported three new cases, bringing the county total to 31, four of which are hospitalized. “Does that mean we’re heading in the right direction? I don’t know that we can even say that,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s only one day, and it’s a very small sample that we have. We may see some higher results in the days to come.” Dr. Debra Bogen, incoming county health director, said residents shouldn’t feel that social distancing efforts aren’t working because of the increase in positive cases, as there is a lag of five to 10 days. “This number will certainly increase in the coming days, in part because we’re now increasing testing but also because we have community spread in our region,” she said. Bogen and Fitzgerald both urged UPMC to begin to “wind down” elective surgeries and hospital admissions “as much as possible.” Both state and county officials have asked hospitals to halt elective procedures as another avenue to staunch the spread of covid-19. UPMC officials have said that while there is community spread, there is not widespread community transmission, which Dr. John Williams, chief of pediatric infectious diseases, defined as “many people (being) infected with the virus in a community, often in different areas. Matt Brown, chief of county emergency services, said medical facilities, ambulance crews and others involved in mitigating the impact of the virus are in constant communication. “This crisis is very challenging, but we are operating within our lanes as we do for every disaster,” Brown said. He said preparations for the virus began weeks ago, and that included coordinating on the needs of EMS and other medical facilities, “confirming that they were all in good shape and had no … unmet needs.” That includes personal protective equipment like N95 breathing masks. He said the county is still able to procure those materials, and they are able to go to the state or federal government if need be. “That is really what we monitor day to day, hour to hour,” Brown said. Fitzgerald said the county has set up an email address for companies, organizations or individuals who can donate personal protective equipment. “(This) is strictly to try to help make sure that our first responders, our medical professionals and others who are on the front line have some of the protective equipment they need,” he said. Elsewhere in the region, positive cases continued to grow. Butler County had its first reported case Saturday. Westmoreland County’s count remained unchanged at four, while Washington County had two new cases, bringing the total to five. The state’s first coronavirus death was reported Wednesday. The victim, Carmine Fusco, was a resident of Bath, Northampton County. He was one of four members of a New Jersey family who died from covid-19, The New York Times reported. Others who died included his 73-year-old mother and two siblings. Seven family members in total have been sickened by the coronavirus, the paper reported.
