California doctors’ dubious coronavirus claims condemned by health experts

A widely shared local television video of last week’s news conference, which was posted on YouTube, reached more than 5 million views and was amplified by Elon Musk and Fox News, where Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi appeared on primetime shows two nights in a row.

The video has since been taken down by YouTube for violating the platform’s policy on misinformation, a YouTube spokesperson said.

The doctors, who are not epidemiologists and who own and operate urgent care centers in the Bakersfield area, held the news conference on April 22 to share their conclusions about the results of 5,213 coronavirus tests at their clinics, extrapolating their findings to the California population as a whole.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. Do we need to test them and get them back … Read More

Oxford Hospital, Private Hospital in Oxfordshire

This hospital is temporarily closed for new referrals

We have made this hospital available to NHS trusts to support patients with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, cancer and other urgent health conditions. For more information please read our FAQs here.

Because we are supporting the NHS at this challenging time, we have reviewed all non-urgent, planned procedures and it is inevitable the majority of these will need to be delayed. We will be in contact with any patients where the Consultant feels it is necessary to reschedule your appointment to a later date. Some initial consultations will be held by video call. If you have any queries about an upcoming procedure contact us here.

Visitor restrictions

With immediate effect no friends or relatives are able to accompany the patient beyond our main Reception area. The only exceptions are:

Coronavirus declared global health emergency by WHO

Media captionDr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “We must all act together now to limit further spread”

The new coronavirus has been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization, as the outbreak continues to spread outside China.

“The main reason for this declaration is not what is happening in China but what is happening in other countries,” said WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The concern is that it could spread to countries with weaker health systems.

Meanwhile, the US has told its citizens not to travel to China.

The state department issued a level four warning – having previously urged Americans to “reconsider” travel to China – and said any citizens in China “should consider departing using commercial means”.

China has said it will send charter plans to bring back Hubei province residents who are overseas “as soon as possible”.

Genomics and Medicine | NHGRI

It has often been estimated that it takes, on average, 17 years to translate a novel research finding into routine clinical practice. This time lag is due to a combination of factors, including the need to validate research findings, the fact that clinical trials are complex and take time to conduct and then analyze, and because disseminating information and educating healthcare workers about a new advance is not an overnight process.

Once sufficient evidence has been generated to demonstrate a benefit to patients, or “clinical utility,” professional societies and clinical standards groups will use that evidence to determine whether to incorporate the new test into clinical practice guidelines. This determination will also factor in any potential ethical and legal issues, as well economic factors such as cost-benefit ratios.

The NHGRI Genomic Medicine Working Group (GMWG) has been gathering expert stakeholders in a series of genomic medicine meetings to discuss issues

Lockerung der Maßnahmen – Vorteile der Fitness- und Gesundheitsstudios


Gestern haben sich Bund und Länder auf erste kleine Schritte der Lockerung der strikten Maßnahmen von Kontaktsperren und Betriebsschließungen verständigt.

Leider wurden die Fitnessstudios innerhalb der ersten Lockerungen nicht berücksichtigt, obwohl der Arbeitgeberverband DSSV bereits mehrfach auf die Vorzüge und die
Relevanz von Fitnesstraining verwiesen hat.

Die Vorteile von Training im Fitnessstudio liegen auf der Hand.

Das gesundheitsorientierte Krafttraining stärkt Muskeln, Sehnen und Gelenke und beugt nachweislich effektiv der Volkskrankheit Rückenschmerz vor.

Gleichzeitig stärkt das Herz-Kreislauf-Training an Cardio-Geräten die
