From The Sun, "First Brit known to catch virus 'beat deadly flu with glass of hot whisky and honey'":
THE first Brit known to have caught the coronavirus has told The Sun how he beat the killer bug with a "glass of hot whisky and honey".Though the sample sizes are still very low, there have been a few indicators suggesting coronavirus may affect Asians more strongly due to increased Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 receptors in their lungs.
A study came out on Jan 26 suggesting that was the case.
From the study, "Single-cell RNA expression profiling of ACE2, the putative receptor of Wuhan 2019-nCov":
A comparison between eight individual samples demonstrated that the Asian male one has an extremely large number of ACE2-expressing cells in the lung.The only other study I've seen since then was one from Chinese researchers that appeared to involve all Chinese patients which found men may be more likely to catch the virus than women.
The coronavirus also appears to affect old people more than young.
The death rate of coronovirus so far has reportedly been about 2 percent, whereas SARS was 9.6 percent. The Spanish Flu death rate was estimated at anywhere from 10 to 20 percent.
The virus is still spreading like crazy according to Johns Hopkins' tracker despite China's extreme quarantine measures.
Ignore the chart leveling off at the end, that's just a programming bug which happens every day when they do partial updates, when the official numbers come out from China so far it has always shot right back up.
There's 11 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US.
Health officials Sunday announced three more cases of the coronavirus in California, bringing the state's total to six and the country's total to 11 cases.
On the positive front, the Chinese managed to complete a hospital in Huoshenshan in just ten days which will have around 1,000 beds.
Thailand claims to have successfully treated two patients with a cocktail of HIV and flu drugs.
"The doctors combined the anti-flu drug oseltamivir with lopinavir and ritonavir, antivirals used to treat HIV, Kriengsak said, adding the ministry was awaiting research results to prove the findings," the South China Morning Post reported Sunday.
If this Brit got better off hot whisky and honey it's possible they just got better on their own.
