In this third part we examine the path not taken: a handful of cheap, widely available, home-based therapies—ozone preconditioning, hydroxychloroquine, and light/vitamin treatment—which, had they been implemented early in the pandemic could have reduced morbidity and mortality by 80% or more. We estimate these interventions could have prevented about 4.8 million deaths globally and 768,000 in the US and in the process put an early end to the pandemic.
The purpose of this study is to report on the unprecedented rise in decidual cast shedding (DCS) that occurred in 2021. DCS is historically a rare gynecological event, with less than 40 cases reported in the medical literature over the last 109 years. Previous journal articles on DCS were usually case studies; population prevalence data is non-existent.
In the second part of our trilogy, we begin by examining social policies sponsored by the science community and enacted by policy-makers to curtail the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. Containment /mitigation strategies such as lockdowns came at great social and economic costs and yet failed to meaningfully impact the spread and evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Two years into the pandemic, with the number of deaths over five million globally and vaccine-resistant variants continuing to multiply, scientists are in the midst of the most dangerous and ill-conceived experiment in the history of medicine.
Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) surveys precede an awareness or intervention program, it addresses a felt need in a population in which that need exists.
Covid-19 pandemic has hit many countries and put the majority of the public health system to test globally. Mandatory use of facemask was among policies set by the government to contain the spread of the novel disease. But citizens’ attitudes and compliance with these policies are important in controlling the pandemic.
We appreciate the attention and interest in our manuscript. The letter raises a handful of issues that pertain not simply to our description of the previously unrecognized phenomenon of magnetic attraction/attachment but regarding the scientific method itself and the generation of new scientific knowledge.
I was fascinated by the study by Thorp et al. on the magnetic effects of Covid-19 vaccination – or rather the lack of the same . The paper’s title is in no way supported by the data. A static magnetic field is a force. The investigators did not do any tests for energy, and even their tests for magnetism were seriously flawed.
In recent months unexpected reports have surfaced claiming the presence of magnetic attraction in the shoulder regions of subjects who had recently received the COVID-19 vaccination. To determine if such claims are legitimate or spurious, a prospective observational study was performed utilizing standard neodymium magnets and non-magnetized paper clips in a rigorously standardized application protocol.
The aim of this study was to assess, identify and have a better understanding of the importance of patient safety culture within the healthcare organization and to create insights on the impact of cultural management systems regarding patient safety.
The pandemic scenario created by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome – Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) brought physical and psychological distress among people who found themselves under a situation which unabled most of them to proceed with their usual routine or rites of passing to cope with losses of lifestyle, relatives, and friends.
The Department of Public Health publishes Open Access peer-reviewed papers focusing on international public health issues. The Department intends to enhance knowledge on the social and individual factors determining the basic conditions of public health, analyzing causal interrelations, and offering a scientifically sound rationale for personal, social and political measures of intervention.
The Department of Public Health has a special focus on the environmental, behavioral, and occupational aspects of health and disease, and the impact of health policies, practices and interventions on the community. The following subject areas are covered in this specialty however the accepted papers are not constrained only to the listed areas.
