meet-the-dog-that-is-helping-frontline-hospital-workers-to-battle-coronavirus-pandemic

His name is Wynn, he is on the frontline of Denver’s fight against the Covid-19, who offers comfort and cuddles to the doctors.


How exactly is he helping the medics?  - he visits the emergency room at Rose Medical Center and is trained to become an assistance dog to adults, children and veterans with disabilities for the non-profit organization Canine Companions for Independence.


But really, how is he making an impact? – he is showing love to emergency room doctors, who are taking a break from their shift. He is sitting next to them while also listening to meditating music.

Before doctors can cuddle Wynn, they are required to wash their hands in order to prevent the possible spread of germs.



The dog owner, Ryan, believes that dogs can have a positive impact on doctors and nurses during this difficult time. 'Seeing stuff and hearing stuff that you can't unsee has an impact on you,' she said. 


'That's where the dogs come in. When you are in the presence of the dog and petting them you are taking a moment to ground yourself at that present time.' 


Wynn will be under the Ryan’s care until she is 22 months old, and then she'll move on to a professional training program at one of the organization's training centers.



More than 520,427 coronavirus cases have been confirmed until today, with over 23,595 deaths. In the United States, there are 81,714 confirmed cases with over 1,143 deaths.

tom-hanks-and-rita-wilson-released-from-the-hospital-after-being-diagnosed-with-coronavirus

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been released from the hospital and are now in self-quarantine at their home in Australia.

The celebrity couple had been diagnosed with novel coronavirus last week, further being hospitalized.

Hanks and Wilson are in Australia for some working on a movie about the famous singer Elvis Presley. Hanks got a good role in the movie, which is Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker.


The shootings and other works on the project are currently suspended.

The couple share news on Instagram about their health and their ongoing recovery.

"We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,' Hanks mentions in his Instagram post. "Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks' will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We'll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!"


Over the weekend, Hanks is sharing updates on their recovery. Wilson even made a playlist which encourages and motivates others who are self-isolating or in quarantine.

chinese-man-wore-a-mask-while-jogging-and-went-to-hospital

A jogger from Wuhan province in China was rushed to hospital after his lung collapsed following a 2.5-mile run while wearing a face covering.


After examining the doctors, the 26-year-old runner underwent an emergency operation in connection with the critical condition of his lungs. According to doctors, the reason for what happened was wearing a mask while jogging. This was reported by Fox News, citing a statement from the Wuhan Central Hospital in Weibo.


In a statement posted to Weibo, China's version of Twitter, the Wuhan Central Hospital said the 26-year-old suffered chest pain and shortness of breath. Upon examination, doctors found his left lung had compressed by 90 percent and his heart was moved to the right side of his body.


Pneumothorax occurs when air goes beyond the lungs. The operation was performed on the runner, and at the moment he is in a stable condition. According to doctors, a life-threatening condition was caused by the fact that the man wore a medical mask while running because of the threat of the spread of the coronavirus in Wuhan.


According to the hospital, the man went jogging about two weeks ago, increasing his distance daily. Having run about four kilometers, a resident of Wuhan felt bad and went home. When the man’s condition worsened, the family brought him to the hospital.


According to the director of the Department of Thoracic Surgery at Wuhan Hospital Chen Baojun, the man was already exposed to spontaneous pneumothorax due to his high growth and slender physique.


The Chinese city of Wuhan has become a hotbed of coronavirus infection. At the end of 2019, Chinese authorities informed the World Health Organization (WHO) of an outbreak of unknown pneumonia. The organization announced a pandemic of the new coronavirus in the world in early March.


As of the morning of May 17, the total number of people infected with coronavirus in the world exceeded 4.5 million people.

90-of-people-infected-with-coronavirus-who-require-hospitalization-also-suffer-from-other-diseases

In recent weeks, more and more studies have appeared on the new coronavirus.  From those related to common symptoms to those who revealed that men are more affected by COVID-19 than women.


 The Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the US this week published the results of another research that looked at who are at high risk for contracting the new virus and being hospitalized.


 According to this study, most people who needed hospitalization also suffered from other diseases.  About 90% of them had one or more diseases, except for COVID-19. Among the most common are hypertension (49.7%), obesity (48.3%), lung disease (34.6%), diabetes (28.3%) and cardiovascular disease (27.8%).

 The study, conducted March 1-30, was conducted on 1482 people infected with coronavirus from 14 states in the United States: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York  , Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee and Utah.


The researchers also found that the diseases of those infected with coronavirus are similar to those of people affected by the influenza virus (which causes the flu).  However, the number of people infected with coronavirus requiring hospitalization is higher than those with the flu.


 Also, another CDC study showed that about 78% of patients admitted to the ATI section and 71% of those hospitalized suffered from one or more diseases.  And 27% of those who did not require hospitalization suffered from at least one other condition.


 Although the study is an incipient one and was conducted on a relatively small number of people, the researchers emphasize that the findings made sound an alarm about the importance of prevention.  "Social distance, frequent hand washing, wearing protective masks are essential to protect the elderly and those suffering from other diseases," says the agency.
