    So, Trump is saving lives, while the media tries to scare people away from it. Hmmmm

    The same media that says Trump has blood on his hands because of the coronavirus.

    It will work but one should adjust the measurements since mol weights are different.
    Isopropyl alcohol is more dense. So if the alcohol meter will show 60%,
    the content is in fact (60.1 / 46.07) * 60 = 78%

    Ethanol 46.07 g/mol
    Isopropyl alcohol 60.1 g/mol

    Add that to the lockdown movie list. In fact, I think I got the Blu-Ray around here somewhere.

    Are HEPA filters available for Cpaps, or can one be made from a vacuum cleaner bag; and would this make any difference?
    I ask because I had a very bad respiratory infection in early December. I think my cpap helped me

    Doctors triage based on need, not citizenship.

    HEPA filters commonly are made with fiberglass. Some are not. If you're going to use a HEPA filter, makes sure it doesn't have fiberglass in it.

    Inslee called it today, school year over, we'll try again in the fall. Kids did manage to complete 2 of the 3 trimesters.

    Kind of struggling with how it will effect them, both in the short term (next few weeks) and longer term. They will have had as much time off by next school year as they had school, for this year.

    I know I have said it before but **** China and their *****assness!

    My girlfriend, whom I am hunkered down with for the past 3 weeks, informed me today that her girlfriend and girlfriend’s husband, who were tested 2 1/2 weeks ago, were informed by DOH of NY today , that they are positive for Coronavirus 19. My girlfriend says therefore she has likely been exposed and so I am likely exposed also.
    Neither my girlfriend’s girlfriend, nor her husband have been seriously ill.

    I noticed a few days ago that I was a bit congested and started taking muccinex. I don’t feel ill.
    I do use a cpap and have using a nebuliser since my lung sickness in December. I’ve been taking vitamins C & D and using zinc lozenges.

    Less than two hours? Yeah, I'm a bit skeptical but I hope that's what it was.

    Maybe someone familiar with how chloroquine and z-pack work can chine in as to whether it's even possible.

    If 14 days have passed and neither of you are showing symptoms, you’re both more than likely good to go. :cheers:

    This is allergy season too, so not every stuffy nose or sneeze is Rona. Rest easy. Well, rest easier... ;)
    Be resolute and take care of yourself like you’re doing, but I’d bet you’re ok after two weeks.

    Did you read the link I posted earlier?

    There are people here who have forgotten more than I will ever know about how this all works, but If I am reading this right, this virus basically destroys the blood's ability to carry oxygen. If you arrest the viral activity in the blood, the red cells can normalize, and you oxygenate better, which would almost immediately make you feel better. I don't doubt what she's saying.

    I read that. Decoding the verbiage means it increases the odds of spreading the virus in a hospital. That is not a problem for someone at home.

    The question is not is this is a good idea for a hospital. If someone has a less serious case, they should have a better outcome with this than without.

    If you need a respirator, then without one you die. However that is not the only possible or even probable course this could take. For every person who has to be on a ventilator, there are some number of patients who could survive with something like we are talking about.

    Do you think it is better to let those people die without trying to help them?
