Pregnant nurse tests positive for corona San Francisco
Pregnant nurse tests positive for coronavirus
A pregnant nurse in Brooklyn who was taking care of COVID-19 patients caught the virus. She then went on a ventilator and her heart stopped. Now, the woman who spent a career caring for
patients is a patient who needs caring for full-time. Shirley Licin sister of Silvia Leroy, 35, showed symptoms first in the mid-March and back then she was working in the labour and delivery unit of Brookdale Hospital which was having heavy
incoming suspected and positive cases right from the beginning of the pandemic. Shirley Licin said that the hospital didn't test any of the doctors or nurses even if they appeared
sick and so Leroy had to wait for a week to get tested but by then she needed a ventilator. Shirley said that her sister was asked to change her IV bag by herself and no one came to clean her which when she asked Shirley to "tell her story" to people out there as she felt left out and not cares in that hospital for which she had been working for seven years.
After the news spread, she was shifted to Mount Sinai in Manhattan where she got better care, a host of medications, including Remdesevir, which led to improvement. She came off a ventilator after a week but three days later the family got a phone call that she was in cardiac arrest and the doctors delivered a baby girl, Esther via cesarean section but the mother's brain lost four minutes of oxygen before she was resuscitated. The doctors are trying to figure out what led her into a cardiac arrest and now the family is struggling to get her into a rehabilitation centre to help her with the brain injury caused. Her family started a GoFundMe page where one can do their part to help her.

US death tolls due to Coronavirus passes the suggested total death count of 60,000
President Trump always likes to talk about the most, the best, and the things which are never seen by anybody. As the death toll is increasing very rapidly, he is trying to make a virtue of a lower number, arguing that the works done by his administration had stopped the number to going up as the present numbers are less than what would have been seen.
The death toll had crossed the mark of 60,000 on Wednesday, which is a figure that Trump had suggested to be the total death toll of the U.S. He considered the present numbers a success when recently White House warned that the number might go up to 100,000 to 240,000 deaths. Trump repeatedly used the potential figure if 2.2 million Americans' death without any intervention to make his point more powerful and his case more persuasive. The number of deaths from COVID-19 is increasing and will continue to go up. The numbers will be revised with time due to the present underreporting. The attention on death tallies had also thrown light on some other essential markers such as immunity levels and infection rates.
Different teams are using different types of data to make assumptions, including the effects of social distancing, use of face masks, and other measures. The most recent summaries show that a cumulative U.S. death toll of 50,000 to 100,000 by mid-May.
British PM Fiancée announced the birth of a baby boy on Wednesday
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the birth of a healthy baby boy with his fiancée Carrie Symonds on Wednesday. Johnson had joined the office again just two days ago as he was suffering from COVID-19 and was hospitalized in London. According to Johnson's office, Symonds gave birth to a "healthy baby boy" in a public hospital in London, and both the mother and the child are healthy and safe. Johnson was present at the time of birth but returned to the office just in few hours. According to his office, he may take a paternity leave later in the year. Johnson,55, and Symonds, 32, announced in February that they were engaged and are expecting a baby together in the summer. Johnson was suffering from COVID-19 and had been dangerously ill and had returned on Monday to work. He spent a week in London's St. Thomas' hospital, including three nights in ICU. His Fiancée Symonds is an environmental campaigner and former Conservative Party staffer. She also told that she was too sick for a week with COVID-19 symptoms, though she was not tested positive. The baby boy is the first child for Symonds. Johnson has four children with his second wife, Marina Wheeler, from whom he is divorced. According to Downing St., Prime Minister was “delighted about the birth of his baby son."
A family dog found positive in COVID-19 in a test by Duke University in North Carolina
In North Carolina, a pet dog is tested positive for COVID-19, which is the first known case of infection in canine. This case had come up from a study from a research study being conducted at Duke University. The Molecular and Epidemiological Study of Suspected Infection (MESSI) is testing how bodies respond to infections, and the goal of the study is to develop infection biomarkers that can help treatment. During the research, a participating family got their dog tested. Then thee dog was found positive.
MESSI principal investigator Dr. Chris Woods said in a statement: "To our knowledge, this is the first instance in which the virus has been detected in a dog. Little additional information is known at this time as we work to learn more about the exposure,"
Dr. Heather Mclean is a pediatrician at Duke Health. Her husband is an ER doctor. They as well as their son, all were tested positive for the COVID-19.
Their family experienced very mild symptoms the same as for Winston, their pug. Winston just lost his appetite. That was the only symptom.
There are some reports of dogs infected with COVID-19 in other parts of the world. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, "CDC is aware of a small number of pets, including dogs and cats, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19."
The team hopes their research can help develop better testing kits and track mutations of the virus over time and in the evaluation of plasma therapy and vaccine.

New symptoms found in children with COVID-19 in US
Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C., had recently admitted that several children suffering from COVID-19 are also experiencing the symptoms that resemble "Kawasaki disease," a rare inflammatory syndrome typically affecting children under the age of 5. A representative from Children's National Hospital said on Wednesday that the children experiencing the symptoms of Kawasaki disease had joined the growing number of hospitals in the U.S. and U.K. that have reported similar cases. He added that one child was officially diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease. There are some characteristic symptoms of this disease, such as fever, rash, eye irritation, swollen lymph nodes, and swelling of the hands and feet. The disease has been linked with COVID-19, but the real reason is still a medical mystery. The link between Kawasaki syndrome and COVID-19 is still not well established. The UK Kawasaki Disease Foundation released a statement Wednesday saying: "there is no current evidence of any increased incidence or greater susceptibility to COVID-19 infection for children who had Kawasaki Disease in the past." COVID-19 cases in the U.S. had been mild and infrequent, constituting only 5% of total cases in the nation. The PICS alert, however, sheds light on what could be a newly identified manifestation of the infection in children. The physicians in the U.S. are noticing many similarities with the U.K. report and their cases.

Ohio hospital prepares to perform elective surgeries
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all the hospital's worldwide have to cancel elective surgeries. Now, Ohio hospitals are setting up to perform elective surgeries, but this excludes surgeries requiring an overnight stay and extensive use of PPE kits. Lisa Jones-Anspach a resident of Middletown has been in a car crash and survived with injuries was supposed to have surgery on her neck in March but it was postponed due to the pandemic, she says "It upset me because I had prepared myself for it. You get excited that maybe you're going to get better and feel better. It's hard to be strong to handle this. It's depressing. I'm so depressed." The Ohio hospital is now busy planning on how to carry out these elective procedures safely, Dr Shay O'Mara, Chief of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery said "The backlog is considerable. It's thousands of patients, we need to get them in and get them in safely. That's really our challenge
now is helping the community understand how safe it is to come in and get things done."
Dr O'Mara added that "What they are going to see is a lot of changes toward safety. A reduction of the number of people who are in the facility, checking people for temperature and symptoms when they show up, keeping space in between, things as radical as you have to wait in your car while your loved one gets an operation so you don't get exposed and aren't exposed to other people."
Jones-Anspach who's surgery is scheduled for the end of May said "I'm worried I won't be able to have my family with me. I'm scared to death already because it's pretty major surgery,I was
told there was a chance I could get the virus while I'm in there. I'm scared about that too." Regardless Jones-Anspach is determined to stay positive and not let her outweigh her pain. She said "I have to get it over with. I have to get it over with. I've been thinking about it. I have to get back to the way I was before."
