DESERT OASIS HEALTHCARE w/ Dr. Brian Hodgkins re: Executive V.P. of Clinical Operations; 275 El Cielo Rd., Palm Springs, 92262. “Your Health, Your Life, Our Passion”.
Leads the COVID-10 Taskforce.
– REPORT that we are starting the 34th week of COVID-19 “Sheltering in Place.”
– DISCUSSION of a “Joey Pal” question…will the vaccine HURT? The side-effects are more pronounced than w/ other vaccines. 2nd shot especially.
– DISCUSSION of the U.K. “rule of 6”, if police see you w/ 6 or more people the police can break up the group and fine you. Study showed that these small groups had no effect on the virus.
– REPORT that 40% of Spanish population and 30% of Italians have been infected.
– REPORT 100,000 new cases a day and the virus has mutated, slower than HIV which mutates very quickly.
– DISCUSSION of the inoculum factor, or how much of the virus does it take to make you sick. MASK WEARING decreases the amount of virus you can get.
– REPORT on how health care workers are more exposed due to added exposure over a longer period of time.
– REPORT that how the virus travels OUTSIDE. Distance, then hand washing, then masks protect you best. A lot of spread is asymptomatic.
– REPORT that we are at 11.2 cases per 100,100 in Riverside County.
– DISCUSSION of a “Joey Pal” question…is it a live virus. No.
– GOOD NEWS that we are getting closer to a vaccine. All trials are back on line. i.e. Moderna study is over; Oxford and Pfiser, etc. Vaccine should be out for health care workers by the end of the year. FDA just met to study design for vaccines. Has to be 50 % effective. Need 2 months of study after the trail ends.
