Study: 41% of Coronavirus infections through hospital

Study by doctors at Zhongnan Hospital at Wuhan University have shown that as much as 41% of Coronavirus patients might have contracted the illness through human-to-human transmission at hospitals.

The study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Friday (7 Feb), looked at 138 cases confirmed between January 1 and January 28 and found that 40 health workers were infected at Zhongnan Hospital, with another 17 people contracting the virus after being admitted for other conditions. The mortality rate for the 138 patients was 4.3 per cent.

Over at the Wuhan Mental Health Centre, nearly 50 patients and 30 medical workers at the centre have contracted the Coronavirus, reported China’s Newsweek.

The paper quoted a doctor at the centre as saying that a cluster of patients at the facility developed a fever around January 24 and tests revealed that nearly 50 patients had the virus.

The doctor said the centre did not do enough to protect its own medical staff and needed more supplies of equipment such as masks.

About 2 weeks later, another 4 medical workers at the centre were found to have contracted the virus, the paper said. Soon, dozens of medical workers were infected.

According to China’s National Health Commission (NHC) and other health experts, the current strain of Coronavirus is very contagious and can infect people via droplets, fomites and faecal-oral transmission.

As of Sunday (9 Feb), the toll for both confirmed infected and death have already surpassed the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak worldwide.

  • Try a different Approach:

    The air-conditioning duct circulates the virus in the hospital? It might be better to isolate infected patients in a separate wing so as not to expose other paitents to the virus. Open windows and cross ventilation maybe better that enclosed aircon environment; expose patients to sunlight, if that will help destroy the virus. Not enough masks even when they are produced in China? How will SG have enough?

    Here Sinkies are told human-to-hunan transmission chances is low. If you are street smart and clever (not like that one) as long as such advice comes from the Clown and PAPigs gang, you don’t believe.

    Now we have Taxi & Grab drivers kenna, people with no travelling history to China also kenna. More similar cases are surfacing, still stupid Sinkies are following no mask in public. Worst, there are those who look at mask wearers as if they are sick or criminals.

    My maid put on mask when she went to market, people asked her why put on mask, are you sick?

    See how stupid are Sinkies!

    Apparently, Sinkies & their masters never believe in Sick Building Syndrome.

    Hospital with such patients should be put in non-aircon wards, separated from others, with only fans & open windows. The hotter the better. Middle-East is the best place to avoid such viruses.

    Experts claimed that the virus will subside once hot weather comes. Why don’t create such environment instead of waiting for nature, especially in segregated wards?

    Stupidity has no cure.

    Right.

    Majority (70%) are so stupid they continue to vote for PAP.

    They might be “infected” with the Stockholm Syndrome “virus”. This makes them stupid.

    BTW, there is no cure for stupidity.

  • @Try a different Approach;

    The virus dies at 50+ degrees. Where in Singapore can find that kind of temperature without killing people first? lol

    Anyway in China, they isolate those close contacts in 4-star hotels but switched off the central aircons, even during this cold winter. Instead, they supply these people with electronic matresses and heat fans.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Straits times: Coronavirus: Should you wear a mask?

    MSM defending MOH advise to wear mask only when not feeling well.

    IT IS STUPID ADVICE FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

    (1) It assumes ALL those who sick are wearing a mask all the time. An unrealistic and stupid assumption.

    (2) True a mask does not give 100 protection. But it is STILL BETTER to wear one just in case somebody near you is sick and not wearing one.

    (3) The assumption wearing a mask gives one a false sense of security and will not do other things like wash their hands is another stupid assumption. It can be the other way around. Use the mask as a REMINDER to take other precautions like washing hands frequently and not your touching face.

    (4) Lastly, a person can be infected (and spreading) the virus before showing symptoms.

    Is MOH advice more “political” than “medical”? Many people wearing mask makes it appears DORSCAN is already red.

    BOTTOM LINE: Better be safe than sorry. Wear a mask when outdoors. Hope for the best but assume the worst and act accordingly. Remember in Singapore “you get sick (and die), your business.”

  • Ban Masks 4 Nurses?:

    Would masks be banned in hospitals for nurses who have yet caught corona?

    Else how is gabramen able to enforce the edict not to wear if not yet sick?

  • Ban Masks 4 Nurses?:

    The virus is said to thrive in lower temperature and dryer environments. If a infected person diarrhoea in a shopping mall with air-conditioning, will the flushing spread the sai all over the mall air-conditioning ducts and spread to the mall shoppers and workers?

    So, these workers are told not to wear masks if not yet sick?

    So they wear after getting infected?

    I will vote PSP as my plan B for a better more secure future. No confidence in 4G.

    LKY is no longer in existence.

    Is anal sex still illegal in SG ? That’s where shit comes from. Prink Dot ?

    If infected due to not wearing masks, can PAP be sued bankrupt?

    Will virus pass through semen during oral sex?

    So , is PAP smarter than the western world medicine professionals to go against the hospital norm of wearing masks?

    Yew be the judge.
    Remember, vote for change !

  • Safe Hospital environment:

    Look like we need to make sure our Hospital are virus safe and medical staff are well protected first to fight this Virus.
    A hospital should be a place to get treatment and not get infected.

  • Hzhsvs:

    1. All countries must ban china people from coming into their country. Only accept PR and citizens to travel in and out of the country. However, have to go through 14 days of quarantine, as for their three meals must be deliver by food delivery service, just make the deliveryman to deliver the food and hang outside of the house with the door close. Cannot face to face contact with the customers.

    2. If SG gov want to transport the 30k people back to SG, they must do so with special plane with only people of the group during midnight and sanitizing the entire plane back and forth.

    3. Those suspected infected people at clinics and in the public. They must be carry in oxygen coffin to the hospital, without their body being expose to the air at all.

    4. That china whistleblower Dr Li Wenliang, he should either just inform the coronavirus first discovery internally and to the gov only, through dark web/WikiLeaks or keeping silence but finding cure first, wait till the virus outbreak then talk about it to keep his life save.

    5. We all cannot say that those people now so kiasu and stupid by stocking up the groceries. But will the gov care? Will the gov act fast? Will the gov give us free food for 3 meals and deliver by food delivery and post office? The situation is now at worse, any time the DORSCON level sure will turn red at this rate, we like every week will have 10 new infection cases. If the gov don’t care about us and the world is so fk up. I don’t mind dying to end the sufferings together with everyone.

    6. Regardless what’s the origin and conspiracy theories behind. Whether china develop the virus for biological weapon/for research purpose but accidentally leak, US sabo-ing china, other country sabo-ing US by harming china. Anyhow eat exotic animals meat and poor hygiene of handling raw meat. The poor and average people will suffer the most and the ones that being infected. The only way to save us all is to find the vaccine, if not we wear mask will also be useless, you will still touching your face after removing the mask, the virus will strain on your clothing, mask and skin. You have opening body wounds, you are being infected by infected people that with no symptoms.

    7. PAP in the upcoming GE sure will lose big time due to this for poor handling of the pandemic, their immigrant policy has failed and killing us. 6.9m populations already like this and cannot handle. What about 10m later on? Asking us not to wear mask when we are still healthy is like saying that a person looks clean/healthy, we can just do unprotected sex with them. They should say if you are healthy but feeling unsafe, wish to wear a mask or at crowded places. You are free to wear a mask. Those who are sick, is compulsory to wear a mask.

    8. Those guys that…

    Else how is gabramen able to enforce the edict not to wear if not yet sick?

    Please do not confuse the public. Currently, there is no rule/law against wearing of mask when you are not sick. In fact it is your social responsibility to put on a mask so as not to inevitably contact the virus and spread to others without you even knowing it.

    Very soon it will be a social norm here.
