Coronavirus Epidemic Update 18: Cellphone Tracking, Increase in Hospitalizations, More Sleep Tips


welcome to another MedCram coronavirus
update let’s take a look at the numbers since the updated criteria for the
diagnosis has gone to just a lung scan and a clinical history consistent with
coronavirus 64,000 436 total deaths 1383 total recovered is six thousand eight
hundred eighty six about five times the total deaths is the total recovered
let’s take a look at the world of meter and we can see here total cases outside
of China have kind of remained constant because there hasn’t been that
redefinition causing a slew of new cases let’s take a look at see what’s going on
inside China or total cases overall if we look down here at new cases there’s
been a dramatic drop in the number of new cases probably because there was a
number of cases that were reclassified we’ll have to watch this and see how
things go now remember what we’re talking about these total cases is based
on the number of people presenting to hospitals that can get work done on them
based on some reports that we’ve been seeing especially out in New York Times
there’s been a crackdown and a rounding up of people and holding them in
quarantine and not getting the medical treatment that they need some people of
course too scared to go and not wanting to get treatment and so it’s unclear
exactly how many people are not being counted here but it’s apparent that this
is still being under counted in terms of total deaths there has been a jump and
that doesn’t seem to be cooling off anytime soon unfortunately for the same reason why the total number
of cases may be underestimated the total deaths may be underestimated as well on
the worldA meter latest updates for February 14 we see that there’s a report
from Hebei province for yesterday that there was four thousand eight hundred
and twenty three new cases including three thousand and ninety five that were
clinically diagnosed we can see here that the testing was just kind of under
estimating those chronically a hundred and sixteen new deaths and eight
clinically diagnosed so we can see that the clinical diagnosis addition to the
count is greatly influencing the number of new cases whereas it’s not affecting
the number of deaths as much total human of cases we can see here that five
thousand three hundred and eighty four were clinically diagnosed we talked
about that what’s interesting here is that thirty six thousand are currently
hospitalized that’s an incredible amount of people that are hospitalized and you
can see here that seventy three percent so the vast majority of them are in mild
condition whereas eight thousand are in serious condition and about four point
six percent are in critical condition there’s a number of people that are
undergoing medical observation because of either their contact or other
symptoms that they may have two new cases in Japan one of them being a
surgeon at a hospital who developed a fever and in still continue to work as
usual and saw patients for three days so that’s probably gonna have to be
followed up on as well okay I want to discuss three things today I want to
talk about the New England Journal of Medicine article that actually we
referenced back at the end of January want to talk about cell phones in China
and I also want to talk just briefly about sleep and circadian rhythms and
some more reading so first of all let’s talk about the New England Journal of
Medicine so there was this article that was published in the New England Journal
talking about a visitor from Wuhan China who visited in Germany for a business
meeting and it was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that this
woman who came over was asymptomatic and when she flew back to China she
developed symptoms of fever and the symptoms of the corona virus had later
tested positive and when they test heard her friends that were at the business
meeting in Germany they had already become sick
and then got better and they tested positive for coronavirus and it was
touted at that time that this was evidence that coronavirus could be
spread even though the patients were asymptomatic well as it turns out
there’s been a correction on this new in Journal of Medicine case and we’ll post
a link in the description what they found out was that before they printed
they had not actually reached out to this index case from China and discussed
with her if she actually had symptoms they reported that she was asymptomatic
but in reality she actually was symptomatic in fact she was taking
medications to suppress a fever and was having very mild symptoms but was having
them nevertheless so what does this mean does this mean that coronavirus does not
shed when the patient is asymptomatic no there’s still people that believe that
and they may be correct all it means is that you can’t use this New England
Journal of Medicine case to support that theory so I think that’s an important
distinction that needs to be made and it tells us that we’ve got to be careful in
this world of rapid information that we get it right before we spread the
information because spreading false information can have consequences the
other thing I want to mention with cell phones we will link to a article also in
The New York Times about what they are doing right now in China in terms of
cell phone use of course in China they have three cell phone providers that are
run by the government and wherever you go of course that phone is GPS right so
if you go to any particular province it’s gonna keep track of that on the
phone well what they’ve currently worked out through these phone companies is if
you text a particular number to them it will show on the phone right in front of
you exactly which provinces in China you have been in in the last two weeks one
month however they want to do it and they just list it and so what’s going on
now is people are coming in to various places to various checkpoints the
customs agents the military personnel who are enforcing these banned
are actually asking people as they come off to text on their phone exactly this
number and up there will pop where they have been in the last month or so and of
course if Luhan is on there or specific province that Wuhan is in pops up there
in some cases not letting them go and they’re redirecting them so I thought
I’d make you aware of that the last thing I want to talk about real quickly
is circadian rhythms now there’s been a lot of questions and what I’m really
trying to do is balance how much we talk about the virus and how much we talked
about sleep and this is the reason why I’m really gung-ho here about sleep
number one is according to the studies that we’ve talked about in our last
updates you can prevent getting the cold with sleeping appropriately up to five
times imagine if I could tell you that if you took this pill
you could reduce the chances of you getting the corona virus by 80% that
would be an amazing way of curtailing the arnott’s or the spread factor of
corona virus and that’s what we’re seeing
not necessarily the corona virus but in Rhino virus and so I think this is
actually significant enough in a discussion of what we can do practically
so in that vein of things there’s been a lot of comments specifically about some
things that I wanted to talk about shift workers circadian rhythm lights and
insomnia first of all shift workers I know there’s a lot of health care
workers that work night shift so that’s like going in at 7 p.m. and getting home
at 7 a.m. or 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. etc here’s the key about shift workers if you’re
gonna do shift work it’s better to always do shift work and not go back
between day and night that’s number one so stay at same shifts the reason why
this is important is because of the second thing we’re going to talk about
and that is your circadian rhythm if you don’t do that you confuse your body
circadian rhythm number two is make sure that your nights
are days and that your days are nights in other words if you’re going to be up
at night make sure that it is bright where you work at night it’s also very
helpful sometimes to take naps when you’re working if your job allows for
that even a 15 to 20 Neb can be very restful number three if
you’re a shift worker and you get home make sure you go to sleep right away as
soon as you get home don’t go out shopping don’t do the kids laundry don’t
go work outside go to sleep and make sure that the room is dark to make sure
that the curtains are sealed make sure the window is sealed you are working
different shift from what the rest of the world is doing but you still need
your sleep and so what you need to do is get your
circadian rhythm on a completely different cycle and that way you’re
gonna get your sleep the problem occurs is when you want to be one way on the
weekends and the other way during the week that doesn’t work so number four
continue your routine on the weekend I’m gonna put a link into the American
Academy of Sleep Medicine website that gives very very good tips on not only
shift workers but people who have other issues with their sleep so the other
thing I want to talk about affects all of us is circadian rhythm and light so
there’s two cycles that have to be in perfect harmony in your body for you to
get the great night’s sleep number one is the homeostatic and this is just a
funny word that tells you basically as you are awake more and more and more you
start to become increasingly more and more and more sleepy as you sleep more
and more you start to become more and more and more rested it’s just like
eating and hunger the more you eat the less hungry you are the longer you go
without eating the more hungry you are and that’s pretty easy to understand but
there is a bedtime that we have and there’s a wake time that we have and so
the other one is circadian and this is what happens when you go on a jet plane
and go to a different time zone and you get off there’s a certain circadian
rhythm that occurs and when both of these are combined together the perfect
thing happens is you are asleep until the morning and then you wake up and
then you are awake until the evening and then you go to sleep and what makes you
go to sleep all of a sudden which makes you get tired around ten o’clock
normally or 11 o’clock normally is the combination of the drive to go to sleep
and the drive to stay awake finally goes away and both of those combined for you
to go to sleep the is that the circadian rhythm can be
shifted either to the left advanced or to the right
delayed and what is it that can shift circadian rhythm it’s light and this is
the thing that is the bane of our existence as people who look at
electronic equipment whether it’s coming from a TV screen a cell phone whether
it’s coming from the lights in our house all of those things at that time of the
night when we should be going to bed especially blue light is going to delay
your circadian rhythm so that you become tired later and later and later and so
what happens is you stay up later and later and later and you don’t feel tired
until later and later and later but you still have to get up in the morning to
beat the traffic to get into work which starts at 8:00 or 9:00 or whatever it
starts and so that squeezes the amount of time that you have to go to bed and
to get the sleep so by eliminating light at night the light that causes this
delay in your circadian rhythm is particularly from blue light but bright
light exposure at the beginning of your day when you’re starting to get up in
the morning has the opposite effect and it can actually advance your circadian
rhythm so what I tell my patients is that if they have a situation where
they’re going to bed very very late because they don’t feel sleepy until
they go to bed very late and they love to sleep until eight or nine or ten kind
of like my teenager what they need to do is advance their circadian rhythms so
what I tell them to do make sure that they’re exposing their eyes to nice
bright lights around 7:00 or 8:00 in the morning and to avoid light exposure late
in the evening let’s talk really briefly about insomnia so some people have an
issue with going to bed and for those of you who have a separate room where your
bed is as compared to other parts of your house this works but many many
people have this situation where they feel tired they’re in the kitchen and as
soon as they go into the bedroom now they are wide awake they can’t go to
sleep and they become very concerned about their insomnia and there’s a
number of issues going on here it has to do with classical conditioning
things like Pavlov’s dogs that you may have heard of in experiments and the
situation is that you’ve got your bedroom and there are things in your
bedroom that you have associated with insomnia and so that comes to your mind
as soon as you go into the bedroom and you can’t sleep because you see these
things that you’ve associated with yourself in your brain for many many
times that you can’t sleep when you’re in this bedroom and it’s sort of like a
performance anxiety and it’s because you’ve associated that bedroom with your
inability to perform and the performance that you need to do in that bedroom is
sleep so what do you do if you cannot sleep in your bed you should leave your
bedroom and go to another part of the house and associate that other part of
the house with inability to sleep we want your bedroom to be associated with
you sleeping so in the same vein if it’s possible and you have insomnia you need
to toss out other things in that bedroom that aren’t there for sleep so in other
words if you have a TV in your bedroom you should get rid of it if you read in
your bedroom if you work in your bedroom you should get rid of it essentially
there’s only two things you should be doing in that bedroom and one of them is
sleeping so that when you go into that bedroom you are going to associate that
very very strongly with sleep and you’re going to eliminate the feeling of
performance anxiety because you’re not going to be associating that bedroom
with inability to sleep because you will be getting out of bed and going to
another part of the house until you are ready to go back to sleep the reason why
people get this is because they watch videos like mine and they get the wrong
impression they say ah I must go to sleep earlier I must get more sleep and
so they go to bed earlier when the circadian rhythm is not ready for them
to go to sleep or they say I’m gonna sleep in this morning even though it’s
nine ten o’clock and it’s time for them to get up and their circadian rhythm is
saying get up but they stay in bed and they can’t sleep and when they can’t
sleep they become more anxious and when they become more anxious they associate
that with the bedroom and that causes the issues so if this sounds interesting
to you I want to direct you to our website med cram comm where there is a
free course on insomnia that I’ve recorded previously and you’ll find a
lot of other courses that will be very helpful in explaining chronic
illnesses and medical conditions next week I will be at a medical conference
but I hope to continue the updates next week so thanks for joining us

  2. Great video on light and sleep! Could you look into the blue light issue. I wear computer glasses (tinted to block blue light) but they never seem to work; then I see this article awhile back that said it's all light that messes with your C rhythm not just blue light. Is that true?

  3. why do I feel more sleepy when I sleep for longer than 6h?
    I can be up for 24h, go to sleep and wake up after ~6h fresh as a daisy without setting the alarm but if stay in bed and fall asleep again even for 1~2h I will be walking like a zombie for the entire day

  4. You can't make a room really dark in daytime unless you paint the windows. Try a blindfold, or a ballcap. It works wonders.

  5. Why is there too much sleep suggestions in relation to coronavirus?
    I suspect that "Sleep" is Dr. Seheult's research topic. He seems to be too obsessed with it for a few days.

  6. On the topic of sleep: I’m curious what your thoughts are on Dr.Michael J. Breus theory of sleep Chronotypes are. I for one, am a wolf, I’m a night person and I literally always have been. Even if I try and go to bed early, I will wake up at 10/11pm with a need to get up. Curious to know your thoughts! Love your videos!

  7. one minor correction, people doing checkpoints are not military but local law enforcement or government workers. The thing in China now is many local governments are too afraid to let migrant workers in, so they set up checkpoints to make sure they go back the way they come. but the central government keeps telling local governments to get rid of these checkpoints. So now the local governments have to accept migrant workers and isolate them for 14 days, and the cellphone tracking is a great way of proving you haven't been to the "worst areas".

  8. I’m in China Hunan. And there is also a program linked to baidu maps (the Chinese google maps) wich shows you the places of residence of the registered Covid-19 patients around you. Luckily I’m at the country side so the family of the next pour infected soul lives – according to that app – around 10 kilometers away of us. I don’t check that up regularly, it feels to bad (and a bit like playing Pac-Man)

  9. I know i should be sleeping, but I'm looking forward to you coronavirus update videos every night. Thank you for the great contents!

  10. Doc, how about the problem go to sleep at 9pm, but then wake up around 12- 1am and can't continue sleeping anymore more more than 1 hour? Thanks

  11. ⚠⚠⚠ China is about to make a Critical mistake that is going to effect the world…
    It has become obvious that china has used every trick in the book to mis-inform its people with many tactics based around the number of infected being released as official numbers..

    They are doing this for many reason but most of all in an attempt to encourage the country to get back to work…

    This is why the world will be greatly at risk as the Chinese population get back to work under the false pretence that the CCP have managed to get the virus under control and the spread of infection…

    The CCP have used many tactics to lower the daily release of the numbers and the most recent was to state that they are now testing many more people with CT scans so the numbers increased for a day only to plummet in an highly unlikely move considering that many more people are now being tested…

    If the Chinese government continues on its path of DECEPTION, The rest of the world will pay the price with the inevitable pandemic that will ensue if china is allowed to get away with their Grand Deception and Cover-up.

    If the WHO and other countries donnot get boots on the ground in china and allow the deception to continue with no real international monitoring, the world will go through a 2020 Pandemic…

    This will be noticed by an increase in countries being infected and the amount of people in those countries.

    We must also be aware that it is in any Governments interest to cover up a pandemic for many reasons and it is likely that many governments will follow suite with china when the pandemic starts in attempts to control Panic and the economy.

    Educate yourselves people and watch out for the signs that the government cannot cover up.

    If the world faces the worst case scenario then we must be ready to Survive what follows the pandemic.

    Good luck.

  12. Been watching every day since update 4. You keep talking about the circadian rhythm, and I don't know if you hit the point for people with rotating sleep schedules and those of us who work from home aren't bound to the traditional wake up and bed time times.
    What I am talking about is something like this:
    Wake up at 8am. Sleep at 12am.
    Wake up at 9am. Sleep at 1pm.
    Wake up at 10am. Sleep at 2pm.
    This continues in the same fashion for years. I am effectively getting a full rest every sleep. Has there been enough research on this?
    EDIT: For those wondering, my sleep schedule is this way due to the sheer nature of how much attention I pay to my body all day. The concept is very simple in my eyes: go to sleep when I'm tired, wake up when I've regenerated (have had a good rest).

  13. at 4:47 I am very familiar with that sort of situation; It is needful that we not over-do our response as I have seen the scary videos and is not appropriate for Western Epidemiology to risk causing panic in developed nations; Conditions in the Zone are vastly differing from what many westerner are acclimatized to; Previously we would hear of other Hemorrhagic incidents take to Methodist in Dallas — which is large population — with no Public Health scares;

    This occur not just once → media hype should be reserved to those interested;

  14. I have followed yr updates from d beginning. Just want to express my thanks for yr efforts. They have been v useful for me re knowledge of & steps to take to minimise being infected/affected by d disease. Thank you.

  15. You're the best, hands down. But, may I say? I left you a tfirst because of the music / announcement, a real turn off. I can't be the the only one. Please be nice, no mad, I want you to get more viewers, you are so good and we all need this at this time especially. Some inferior educators are getting more views than you, and they are really missing out, I was one…

  16. Doc, your channel is so far the best compared with some 'doctors' channels, which love to spread fear mongering same like medias. The NEJM issue is already in head of many people. Question: 'I'm over 60, go to bed around 9pm, but then wake up around 12 – 2 am and have problem to continue sleeping. Mostly around 1-2 hours I lost at the end'. Thanks

  17. More interesting to me is if you use your VPN and change your location, the numbers in these website change considerably.

  18. Happy Valentine's day ❤️ Thank you so much for making these videos. They have helped me so much (watched the asthma ones and other videos too, again, you are just an amazing natural teacher ) and I truly appreciate you taking the time and effort to create these❤️ Thank you ❤️

  19. Question: If we can get the Cold a 2nd time or more, how does that work with getting the Corona Virus a 2nd or 3rd or 4th etc times after recovery?

  20. If 2% are dying and 4% are in critical condition, we are looking at a potential 6% death rate, not the reported 2%. Quite disturbing.

  21. Since geting best results of figuring out how many ppl are carying the virus is testing them and i know its imposible to test the whole population every day to track the dissease better. I thiught about it and I dont know if my idea is possible or not but please an expert microbiologist if you are here please read this. Can we check with forensics if a area is infected with a virus. Would it glow or paint itself a certain color if some kemical element is added? I hope i was clear enough! If not please ask me to elaborate further

  22. Going to work although sick is so common in Germany. Then we shake our hand to each other when we meet on our way and during a meeting to all members. Because the insurance and company registered our 'sick' days in their records. Getting higher in management level, less people are 'sick' till suddenly some must be hospitalised and died few weeks later.

  23. Hey thanks very much for the video. I very much wish I only sleep in the bedroom. But I stayed in school hostel for 10 years and now I graduate I rented a single room (sharing apartment). Most my life at home happens in the same room as I sleep.
    I have issue with sleep for years and have difficulty going to sleep before 12 or even before 1. What can I do to help my body if I can't change my room condition?

  24. Thank you doctor. You reenforced what I’ve always thought about the bedroom. I have not one bright light in my bedroom. I wised I’d found your site sooner. You information is so useful. I’ll be a member soon even though am not in medical field.

  25. "Stay at same shift" as if employees have this option. My girlfriend is a nurse (we live in Thailand)… there is no way I could maintain her schedule.

  26. Speaking of getting it right before we spread information, not only does China include clinically diagnosed cases, resulting in the increased count recently, but also tested, asymptomatic cases. Therefore the reason for the sudden rise is twofold, which most news outlet or YouTube pundits are not consistently mentioning.

  27. The other thing to be done in your bedroom during this plague is pray on your knees at your bedside for the protection of the doctors, nurses and all those front-line professionals including the toilet cleaners, food preparation and delivery staff, etc., and your family, the community at large and yourself and lastly that you may be blessed with a good night's sleep as the good doctor suggests.

  28. I have really appreciated these videos esp during this virus outbreak. I have one daughter in medical school so I'm trying to keep up with the science on a rudimentary level. I do feel sorry for this doctor after watching this episode though; reading in bed is one of the great pleasures.

  29. Hang on a second… “we get it right before we spread it on social media”?
    I’m a pleb. NEJM are the experts. Who am I supposed to rely on then?
    My spreading bad professional info is not my fault.
    The professionals have the responsibility to get it right prior to publication.

  30. You said little about the corona virus. So you should change the title and say you're talking about sleep because that's what you mainly talked about was you're sleeping patterns lol 😂.

  31. i had sleep problems too because my bedroom is also my workroom with a desk and computer which have flashing led even when turnoff.
    i decided one day to split my bed room by installing a long horizontal pole and hanging a light weight but dark curtain.
    when i want to sleep even at high noon. i just draw up the curtain, and go to sleep. i never had any problem anymore except with heat. but that is another problem.

  32. There is a free program called f.lux that will dim and change the color temperature of your computer monitor gradually in the evening and slowly brighten it in the morning based on when you set your bedtime/wake up time. Also, it will pop up reminders every half hour letting you know when it's time to go to bed and how much sleep you'll get if you go to bed now.

  33. I have not been able to sleep more than 5 hours or less since I was 45 years old, I am now 63. My sleep patterns has not been normal since I had three nervous breakdowns in the late 90s and had to retire from my employment an earlier age than usual. I can't recall exactly when I stopped sleeping through the night, perhaps when I had my last child at 38 years old or when my husband left shortly after and passed away. Since then I have not slept a consistent number of hours or had much restful sleep even with medication for anxiety. I have had many. Traumatic life experiences which I believe Contributes to my lack of the ability to sleep. Adequately. Yes, my rhythm is off, and I know it but have tried many times to rectify it and failed. I have resigned myself to just go with the flow and hope for the best, even though each day is disorganized, depressive, and exhausting. In a nutshell, the things you list as being contraindicated to restful sleep are all around me at all times, and have become my comforts and way of life. I have not had a sleep study. I don't feel they are accurate. And as I say, I have given up trying to attain organize sleep times; feeling helpless In this as nothing has worked to achieve this since approximately 1998 or thereabouts. Thank you for your videos. I find them very informative and thought- provoking.

  34. If you lived there. And might be sick. Would you go in. They sound like death camps. China today put a bounty on people $300.00 if the sick person. Goes in. If you report someone. You get $80.00 per person. Think.

  35. I live in British, Columbia, Canada. We have seven confirmed cases in Canada. Four of which are in British Columbia where I will live. In Vancouver We have the largest population. Of Mainland Chinese living outside China I also found out today. Everyday 70 80 Chinese Nationals Are coming here and up to a thousand a week? Cuz we haven't shut our borders down to them. They're flying in and just today we had one more confirmed case in the BC interior. She drove there. 30 years old This is scaring the hell out of me because how many Chinese went home for the new year seeing the s*** was hitting the fan and got out before. And they're not screening them at YVR Vancouver. They're asking them if they've been in certain areas of China and to please self quarantine. Not good. Canada can afford this. There's no way. We could come up with a response. Like our big brother USA down past the 48th parallel. I don't believe the numbers that China. Is releasing I don't believe the numbers that the World Health Organization is releasing. The numbers are fudged. I can't prove it, but who's going to believe a communist? Party I sure the hell won't. So now I've got five north respirators with biological filters. P100 stocking up an ammunition food water I'm precautions. Just in case. This is starting to get serious.

  36. Seeing about half of our population are women, there needs to be a medical study on the effects of sleep deprivation and broken sleep on mothers with young children. Our society has evolved to the point where families are often isolated and no longer have hands on support from grandparents. And although things are changing, mothers still take on the majority of parental duties at night. This is different to shift work…a mother can't sleep in the day so there is a constant sleep deficit.

  37. Thank you for all the updates. While your messages are at times scary on this virus . They are comforting that there is some sort of info coming out daily.

  38. I have no trouble getting to sleep, it only takes me about 50 minutes PS Apparently a person who goes to sleep in minutes is short of proper sleep.

  39. They should be taking the "number of deaths" divided by the number of "recovered" x 100. That is a 20% death rate.

  40. New virus emerges in China — I sleep.

    It’s spreading to other countries — R E A L S H I T

    Sleeping helps your body defeat viruses — I sleep.

  41. Swing shift work hours has NEVER made sense. It messes up the entire system of the body.
    Some are BORN as night owls. This is for a reason.

  42. I imagine some people are angry and some are glad at being tracked by phone to slow down the Corona virus. If it proved helpful, then I guess it’s worth it.

  43. You know what, I dont read or listen to any newspaper online other than going straight to my YT notifications to see your updates. You are my news outlet on this issue. You not only update us in a very appropriate manner but also educate us what needs to be done, and how to take information and how to react on it. You also help us understand the other side of picture which general public doesnt see at all. You are blessing for all of us. And you are doing a great job here. Your research is thorough and to the point and addresses the issue, eliminates the false information that could spread sensation and drive general public crazy. And I have a lot of respect for you. This is all coming from bottom of my heart. God bless you my friend!

  44. OK. We have the correction to the NEJM article with result being that it is not shown that a person without symptoms can pass along the virus. The correction does however show that a person with minor symptoms that they can deal with and where they do not know they have the virus can infect others. I suppose there is some interesting distinction for the medical community between these two scenarios but for practical purposes we have people with minor symptoms who do not appear infected are transmitting the virus.

    This is a rather critical point. The Washington Post had an article a few days ago saying that most of the infected people had minor symptoms. As in the case of the person in the NEJM article, these people are carriers, infecting others and do not realize they have the virus. We also have that most infected people who have minor symptoms will likely not seek medical help until they have more urgent symptoms. This group is not included in the infected counts since the current official counts only consider people who have sought medical help. This uncounted, infected group has a number greater by possibly some small multiple of the official figures.

  45. Amazing video and yet… Only thing I am retaining is that there are only 2 things I should be doing in my bedroom and 1 is sleep. 😏😏😏

  46. Sorry but no shift workers are going to
    Sleep during the day on the weekends! Unless they are totally freaked out about this virus!!! Working for local government where we get called in all hours and you never have one week that’s like another! Well good luck! Not like I can say sorry I’m not going in on call right now, the police are just going to have to do without! Wish we could all work some kinda ideal shifts but we can’t all do that

  47. Hi Doctor. Love your updates. Question? I have under treated chronic pain and do not sleep for more than 1-2 hours at a time. Also have central sleep apnea mod-severe for which I find bipap doesn't help-still wake up every 1 hour or so. I'm screwed aren't I if I get exposed?

  48. Besides FOX NEWS & their expert interviews, from a layman's perspective I mostly absorb what I can on COVID-19 according to my favorite video experts on COVID-19, Dr. John Campbell, Dr. Chris Martenson, & Dr. Roger Seheult. Thanks to each of them for their concerns, research, & instructive updates
    I can see how this virus kind of mimics what was nicknamed a 'rhinovirus' almost 30 years ago (-1991+)… it was infected primarily thru the nose, sinuses, causes sneezing & might only last an episode or half day or so, causing mild sore throat later, then lung problems BUT THE KEY IS RECURRENCE OR RECONTAMINATION..after recovering a week or so, it REINFECTS 'worse' (all symptoms & duration), more sneezing, lasting longer, this recurs with recovery lasting longer each episode, by 2nd or 3rd episode shows a fever, eventually higher fever & longest duration probably 10 days to 2 weeks becoming really sick, flat on back.
    It starts like a common cold, hardly detectable, returns again & again & eventually hits hardest like an influenza, maybe 6-8 weeks later. I am suggesting this COVID-19 COULD BE similar, carried, hidden, spread, lowering immune system each time. One might notice some symptoms, fatigue, fog or mist sensation in lungs early on, but doctor or tests won't detect anything at first, even a fever.

  49. This channel is so amazing at clarifying details and situation using visuals. It helps me understand it so much better. Very unique YouTube channel and keep using visual writing/drawing it really helps a lot

  50. Are you assuming the data coming out of China is accurate? What do you think a % greater than reported could / should be? And do you think of the 8000 on serious condition- do you think they are on ventilators?

  51. They are not accepting most of the new cases to the hospitals. You don’t have to count the people you don’t accept.

  52. I recommend this book to everyone: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker. Beyond improving our immune system, sleeping does soooo much for us. This book has changed my life.
