    Thankfully that seems to only be a rare symptom at the moment. You never know, she may have had something else that either caused the encephalitis or made her more susceptible getting encephalitis from the virus. Lots of the other scary viruses (like the Nipah virus) cause encephalitis as a...

    Having the antibody tests would be huge, as we would know who is (at least temporarily) immune to the virus because they've already had it. This could also show us that 50% of the population (just pulling a number out of thin air for an example) has already been exposed, at which point we could...

    Thanks for this post; it is a great reminder to be grateful and realize that things could always be (much) worse. I hope your friend continues to be ok. It's hard to imagine losing your loved-ones and not being able to have a funeral or some kind of gathering to grieve together.

    @WillHurtDontCare I'm in a similar boat - my girlfriend is due in two weeks. I looked for some studies online, and the ones I found were promising. The number of participants in the studies were small, but for the most part it seems like pregnant women were ok and generally gave birth to...

    Perhaps it gives that evidence, but the tests in the USA are biased towards people who are sick with similar symptoms (since we have a shortage of tests). It could be that many healthy people in NYC would test positive (or would test negative but have the antibodies in the serum test). Without...

    Looks like trials for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are starting in Seattle and New York this week. Also, I'm interested to see if the survivor plasma transfusions may be able to free up some space on the ventilators by preventing some of the more severe cases. The article mentions...

    I wondered the same thing about catching it myself earlier this year. I'm 39 and decently healthy, and I caught something nasty at the end of January. Multiple days of fever and chest pain in the lungs. I haven't had a fever in over 10 years (incidentally, the last time I had a fever I had...

    That paper is interesting, but they can't account for the world coming together to fight this. Things like ventilator production being ramped up, other antivirals being tested, massive testing/tracking similar to South Korea, etc. We can lower the spike of cases with social distancing, and we...
