This is its third city to work on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic, as Arizona presents a new location but a similar challenge. Ronnie Rodriguez, a travel nurse, has previously worked during the pandemic in hospitals from New York and Florida. She came to Arizona and started working at a Valley hospital several weeks ago. “We are overwhelmed,” Rodriguez said. “Our [emergency rooms] are maximized; they open units that are not normally used. RELATED: Arizona COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts Rodriguez Told ABC15 The Valley Hospital Scene Was All Too Familiar. It’s as busy as anywhere else, “she said.” I don’t think it’s as chaotic as New York, but compared to South Florida it’s very similar. feels like it’s a bit more structured here, which really makes a difference. “When dealing with COVID-19 patients who are able to speak, Rodriguez said some have similar stories going back to meetings of Thanksgiving. “They ‘is like’ we got together ‘, and maybe a family member was asymptomatic, and they had no symptoms, so everyone thought he was okay and after the holidays, someone. ‘one tested positive and everyone else in the family came down with Rodriguez also said it’s not just what she sees on the front line, but what she hears. “Most hospitals are ‘code blue’,” Rodriguez said. “So if you hear ‘code blue’ it is probably what that one who has stopped breathing somewhere. Before COVID-19, you might hear it from time to time, you know once a day. But now it’s eight, ten, twelve times a shift. It’s a lot. Rodriguez also shared that COVID-19 is affecting her not only professionally, but personally, as both of her parents are in hospital battling the virus in Florida. She said her father is still in intensive care. , if I’m at work or at home here in Arizona, I still have to worry about COVID-19, “she said.” It’s tough when it comes to .. . The fact [another] “However, she is determined to help fight the outbreak in Arizona.” Nursing is a calling, ”Rodriguez said. That’s what I’m here to do. I must. I must help. “.
A Bangladesh medical team led by a senior doctor has claimed that their research on the combination of two widely used drugs has produced remarkable results in curing patients with acute symptoms of coronavirus that have created chaos worldwide and claimed the lives of more than 312,000 people in the whole world. .
Claims by the Bangladesh medical team, which includes leading doctors from the country, came amid desperate global efforts to recover the deadly corona virus.
“We got amazing results. Of the 60 COVID-19 patients, all recovered after the combination of the two drugs was applied,” said Professor Dr. Md Tarek Alam, head of the medical department at the private Bangladesh School of Medical Schools (BMCH).
Alam, a well-known doctor in Bangladesh, says a commonly used antiprotozoal drug called Ivermectin in a single dose with Doxycycline, an antibiotic, produces almost miraculous results in curing patients with COVID-19.
My team prescribed two drugs only for coronavirus patients, most of whom initially reported respiratory problems with related complaints, then tested COVID-19 positive, he said.
Bangladesh has reported 20,995 cases of corona virus so far. A total of 314 people have lost their lives in the country due to this disease.
Claiming that the efficacy of the drug developed by them is such that patients recover from the virus within 4 days, he said, adding that there were no side effects from it.
We first asked them to be tested for COVID-19 and when a positive coronavirus was found, we used these drugs. . . they recover in four days “.
“Repeated or second tests, according to the procedure, reconfirm their COVID-19 negative in all cases under the study which found the combination had no side effects in patients as well,” he said.
We are one hundred percent hopeful of the effectiveness of the combination, he said, adding that they have now contacted relevant government regulators and are preparing to issue international procedures for drug recognition for the treatment of COVID-19.
Alam said his team was preparing papers on drug development for international journals, as needed for scientific review and recognition.
Nature’s colleague, Dr. Rabiul Morshed, said that despite being a non-COVID-19 facility, a large number of patients, directly and indirectly, ended up at BMCH, the country’s main private public hospital.
But all showed remarkable recovery (COVID-19) negative in four days and 50 percent reduction in symptoms in three days, he said.
Coronavirus, which originally erupted in China, claimed the lives of 312,115 people while infecting more than 4,650,793, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Chinese researchers who tested the sperm of men infected with COVID-19 found that a small proportion of them had a new corona virus in their semen, opening the likelihood of the disease being sexually transmitted, scientists said Thursday.
A study by doctors at 38 hospitals in Shangqiu city in China who were hospitalized with this disease found that six of them, or 16 percent, tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 in their semen.
The researchers said that while the findings were only temporary and were only based on a small number of infected men, further research was needed to see whether sexual transmission might play a role in the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Further research is needed regarding detailed information about virus release, survival time, and concentration in semen,” the team wrote in a study published on JAMA Network Open.
“If it can be proven that SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted sexually … (it) may be an important part of prevention,” they said, “especially given the fact that SARS-CoV-2 was detected in semen of recovered patients.”
Independent experts say the findings are interesting but must be viewed with caution and in the context of other small studies that have not yet found new coronaviruses in sperm.
An earlier small study of 12 COVID-19 patients in China in February and March found that all were tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 in semen samples.
Allan Pacey, a professor of andrology at the University of Sheffield in England, said the study should not be seen conclusively because there are some technical difficulties in testing semen for the virus. He said the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in sperm did not indicate whether it was active and capable of causing infection.
“However, we should not be surprised if the virus that causes COVID-19 is found in the semen of some men because this has been demonstrated with many other viruses such as Ebola and Zika,” he said.
Sheena Lewis, a professor of reproductive medicine at Queen’s University Belfast, stressed that this was a “very small study” and said her findings were consistent with other small studies that showed low or no SARS-CoV-2 in semen sample tests.
“However, the long-term effects of SARS-CoV-2 on male reproduction are unknown,” he said.
