According to recent news about UP from my friends and classmates of hospitals in GZ, the situation is not so good as it was reported in papers and magazines. Now, there still have some new cases everyday, but many cases of them were not so confirmed. Each hospital has set up a new deptartment or a special place to treat these patients.

The situation in the second affiliated hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, I think, is the worst of all. There about 85 case are found in the staff. Most of them are nurses and doctors, and as one of my classmates in department of emergency evidented, an ambulance driver died in this disaster two days ago. The deptartment of medicine were nearly close, about one third of doctors are sick.
five of my classmates are in hospital now. My the god bless them!

Also situation in the third affiliated hospital of Sun Yat-sen University is the same. After the news about UP reported in papers and TV since Feb 9th, less patients came to this hospital for treatment and the total number of outdoor patients dropped to only 200 per day in the worst day. This numbers is less than one fiften of it in recent days. It really damaged its finance. At the same time, as my classmate told me, nineteen people, including doctors, nurse, ambulance driversa and engineers were infected when they tried to help a dieing paitent. I wish the disaster would end righ now and every patient would be healthy immediately.

Just a week before, patients, more of them nurses, with UP were transfered to the first municipal hosptial of GZ. A specially department was built to collect these specail patients and doctors are trying to find a good way to treat them. Now there are 35 patients in this department, but unfortunatedly, 2 nurses died of this terrible disease days ago. It was really a tragedy. As a doctor said, a patient was mad when she was going to leave the hospital. Both these two nurse are from small hospital in GZ, and most patients are very young nurses and from the eighth municipal hosptial of GZ.

As to the eighth municipal, they treated most patients with UP in this accident. But with less doctors and most patients, their work became harder and harder with the number of cases rising rapidly. Many are going to sick because of overwork although other hospitals having sent many doctors and nurses to help them. These angels, facing to the strong devil that we haven't seen before, devoted themselves to help many dying people. We all must appreicate for their great work!

Patients in the first affiliated hosptial of Guangzhou medical College are recovering now. Leading by Academician Zhong Nanshan, patients were well treated. About over 10 people working there were infetive, but the infection is not so worse and they are recovering now. I really wish one day, doctors there can find out the origin of this disaster.

In the following days, we all, doctors and nurses, fighting against this terrible disease, will keep an eye on it.

That's pretty scary. Good luck getting through it.

I work in Infection Control at a hospital in Los Angeles county. Is there something the Epidemiologist could do or should know?

Not good.

Pray it's not a super-resistant strain that has been generated by chronic mis and over use of anti-biotics.


theloneabalone 28th February 2003 02:09 PM

if it's viral, antibiotics have nothing to do with it, but scarier things are already running around in the US food supply (e. coli O157:h7 will give you bloody diahrrea until you have kidney failure) or in the hospital setting (there is a multi-antibiotic resistant strain of pseudomonas and staphilococcus running around). anyways, be careful what you eat or who's coughing around you. makes perfect sense to have a home theather right now, eh? specially around cold season (right now).

Maybe that explains why I haven't had a cold yet this season.
