    No treatment for Covid... Viral infection, the management is Supportive, you manage the symptoms, Paracetamol for Fever, Hydrate if patientnis dehydrated, boost the immune system so the patient wont go to secondary bacterial infection, Intubate the patient if he goes into Respiratory failure...things like that... At this time, no vaccine nor antiviral available to treat Covid...

I would rather err on the side of caution than having the attitude of being kampante...
    Tama. Being “kampante” caused people in Italy their liberty. Outbreak has spread into an epidemic in just a few days because people (esp teenagers and young adults) went on with their lives as if Covid19 was nothing. They banked on a premise of low mortality and that it kills only people with weak immune system and/or have other serious illnesses. When football players started contracting the virus and some younger people not in the expected age range started dying, boom- a rude awakening. The government did a poor job containing the spread and Italy overtook S. Korea for the 2nd place in just a short period of time.

    Too bad it has to come down to this. Guess it’s better to be inside our own houses than being inside a coffin or being intubated in the ICU. I hope people in Pinas becomes more responsible and the government do a good job so as not to resort into a lockdown.

    Sure. And if we don't find a treatment and cure for Covid, it will overtake that in no time.

    This thing is worse than the flu and right now there is no treatment and cure so fight it off with your immune system, pray you don't contract pneumonia and drown in your own mucus while you sleep.

    Keep calm but keep your eyes open.

    To just do comparison then label this as less harmful or treat this as mere statistical is dangerous. 4000 out of 80000 dead, do the math and extrapolate. the danger of a virus like this is that it might put us in a false sense of complacency if we just say its just like colds or like ordinary flu. Put a face in those statistics and imagine of one of those is a love one or the like. Better not treat this as mere statistics

    What really worries me is the, sorry for the word, hardheadedness of some Pinoys. Never disclosing their travel history to avoid being quarantined or just straight up lying during their check up ( kung nagpa check up pa). Which could explain why we have low number of cases so far. Now that testing is free hopefully this would encourage those people to seek help. Because this could really blow up in our faces..

    But what really irks me is that some see this as an opportunity to hoard and resell medical supplies. I know some hospitals are out of masks and other PPEs. Some are even forced to perform surgeries using recycled masks. If our health care workers get sick pano na?

    @sajubead you're also working in the medical field bro?

    Especially with around 10% mortality rate so far in the Philippines.... 5 deaths out of 52 positive with Covid...

    More than 20,000 US soldiers with their tanks, helicopters and armaments are in ITALY right now? For what? Aren’t they risking their troops by sending them here right now?

    The general public hasn’t been informed but thanks to the internet, the news blackout isn’t absolute. Rumor has it this is like a dry run, tagged as Europe Defender 2020, as to how Europe and NATO would react in case of a world war. Really, now? You can’t help but put credence into this theory because the timing can’t be any worse. Italy has just recently formed a sort of economic alliance with China and perhaps the US is getting insecure and threatened. This is simply a geopolitical maneuvering if you connect the dots, and COVID19 is an efficient, dual purpose diversion.

    These soldiers are vaccinated and are immune to this virus. No government would risk such a huge number of troops for an exercise akin to our very own VFA. Speaking of which, maybe heads of the states know what’s cooking, and Digong doesn’t wanna be a part of it.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    I would just like to emphasize that more than 20k troops is a very huge number for an ordinary military exercise. You add to that the risk of contracting Covid 19 is real and yet they chose not to postpone this, and you can’t help but deduce that something’s amiss.

    When paranoia or overreaction becomes useful.

    More often, its better to overreact & be labeled as paranoid than be complacent & arrogant and die as such
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    But panic and hysteria will also doom us.. it's better to remain calm and just follow WHO. Look at what's happening. This virus brought out the worst in people.

    Italy 40k cases, 3,400 deaths toppling China who has double the positive case at 80k. 475 deaths the other day, the most in any nation. 8.2 % mortality rate, I would assume also among the highest. Lockdown would be extended for sure, and this time ot has no target date, indefinite lockdown. Very little regression on the number of new cases.

    All these because people were so sure it was just a more severe flu.

    The kids on spring break in the USA are singing the same tune the Italian kids were singing a couple weeks back. Hope they're ready for what's coming.

    It's almost 20% in the Philippines.. and it's probably even higher than that as some cases are not reported/patients died before they got tested. With the state of our health care system currently is, expect those numbers to soar up once we got more testing kits.

    If these kids are our future we're doomed.
