Covid-19: Senator Bill Frist, M.D. Second Opinion Podcast

In the midst of a crisis like the Covid-19 one that is unfolding around the world, it’s very hard to separate the signal from the noise. In the US, we are now in the thick of the aggressive expansion of infection from the virus, and we can look to a number of other countries for what they’ve done, how things have played out, and what has been effective. While it’s easy to find experts everywhere, and Twitter allows even those most unexpert authority figure to be an expert, I’m continuously se...

Appointing Pence to Lead Response, Trump Scrambles to Contain Fallout From Coronavirus Threat to U.S.

President Donald Trump knows that presidents are ruthlessly judged for fumbling a crisis. President George W. Bush was widely ridiculed for saying “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job,” to Michael Brown who headed the bungled response to Hurricane Katrina. Trump himself called the botched 2013 rollout of the enrollment website for President Obama’s Affordable Care Act a “total disaster.” In 2014, he said President Obama should be “ashamed” for not blocking flights from Africa during an ...

How Daily Life Could Change If Coronavirus Spreads Within The US

(CNN) — Officials at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have warned that it’s not a question of if, but when the novel coronavirus will spread in the United States — and communities are urged to prepare for the virus that has already killed thousands and sickened 10s of thousands more worldwide. How could the possible spread of coronavirus change our daily lives? Schools, businesses, hospitals and first responders could all be impacted, according to the CDC. “We expect we will see...

Despite CDC Warning, Trump Doesn’t Sound Too Concerned About Coronavirus

President Donald Trump has treated the global coronavirus outbreak like most obstacles in his way — as a messaging opportunity. Apparently worried about a downturn in the stock market ahead of his re-election bid in 10 months, the President on Monday broke a weeks-long Twitter silence on the matter and reassured… investors. The market has tumbled in light of the outbreak’s threat. The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countrie...

Coronavirus: ~200 Americans evacuated from China will get out of quarantine soon

Nearly 200 Americans who were evacuated from the coronavirus outbreak zone in China might be released soon from quarantine at a U.S. Air Force base in California. All Americans returning from Hubei province, where Wuhan city is located, were required to undergo a mandatory 14 day quarantine, and when that's up, they can go if determined to be healthy, a leading U.S. health official said. The fast-spreading outbreak has killed over 1,000 in China, where nearly 43,000 cases are reported. Anot...

The Vaping-Related Lung Disease Outbreak May Be Coming to an End

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced Friday with new confidence that vitamin E acetate seems to be largely to blame for the vaping-related lung illness outbreak that swept the country—at the same time it announced the outbreak seems to be approaching its end. As of the CDC’s latest update, 2,506 people in the U.S. and its territories have been hospitalized for “e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury” (EVALI), and 54 people have died. Most of these cases s...

Public health officials Monday said there's a growing epidemic of tobacco products currently used by children -- 4.9 million high school and middle school kids used tobacco products in 2018 up from 3.6 million in 2017 -- mainly due to a growth in e-cigarette usage.

‘Nightmare bacteria’ stalk U.S. hospitals

By Liz Szabo, California Healthline The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention detected more than 220 cases last year of a rare breed of “nightmare bacteria” that are virtually untreatable and capable of spreading genes that make them impervious to most antibiotics, according to a new report. Although the CDC has warned of the danger of antibiotic-resistant bacteria for years, the new report helps illustrate the scope of the problem. Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director, sa...

Antibiotic-resistant "nightmare" bacteria are spreading across the US

A new breed of “nightmare” bacteria resists pretty much all of our antibiotics – and it’s rapidly spreading across the US. The bacteria – called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) – is different from your run-of-the-mill antibiotic-resistant bacteria because it is incredibly deadly, with 50 percent of infected patients dying. Not only that, but it is spreading like “wildfire” with over 200 cases identified in 27 states. Researchers at the CDC said that last year they tested 5,700 sa...

A deadly drug epidemic sweeping the US has caused ER visits for overdoses to jump 30% — here’s how worried you should be

The US is seeing the highest drug overdose death rates ever recorded in history. Opioid painkillers are the heart of the problem. People are overdosing on prescription drugs from doctors and illegal drugs purchased on the black market. The path to death can start innocently, with a benign prescription for painkillers from a doctor. But after weeks or months on a powerful drug like morphine, a small percentage of patients will become dependent — a function of innate human wiring.  Every year,...

There's an uptick in HIV in these millennial groups. Here's why

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just released a report about HIV trends for people under 30 in the U.S., and the numbers show an increase in one particular group: 25- to 29-year-olds. After collecting data from all over the country on HIV and AIDS diagnoses between 2010 and 2014, the CDC found that overall rates of infection for 13- to 29-year-olds has remained stable overall. And for some of the younger groups, like those aged 15 to 19, rates have actually gone down. But "W...

U.S. officials warn 'intense' flu season to continue, urge shots

(Reuters) - Adults who get a flu shot are 36 percent less likely to get the disease, while for children the figure was an unexpectedly high 59 percent, U.S. health officials said on Thursday, predicting that the current "intense" season could continue for weeks. Anyone not already immunized should get a flu shot despite the lateness of the season, because "some protection is better than none," one of the officials told a news briefing. A total of 63 children in the United States have died of i...

3 of 4 kids who've died from flu this year weren't vaccinated, say federal doctors

Of the 63 American children killed by the flu virus so far this season, just 13 had been vaccinated.  Top government doctors — including the Surgeon General, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and acting head of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — found this lack of vaccination so alarming that late Thursday afternoon they offered a joint briefing on the matter. "Getting the flu shot is the same kind of sensible precaution as buckling your seatbelt," said Health Secretary ...

Flu season rages on, surpassing 2009 swine flu epidemic by some measures

The severe flu season of 2017-2018 could get worse before it gets better, officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned Friday.  With at least three strains now circulating across the U.S., with the most dangerous one designated H3N2, the season has already surpassed recent records for hospitalizations and other measures.  One out of every 10 deaths, or 10 percent of all fatalities reported in the U.S. during the third week of January were due to either the flu or pn...
