Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Covid and Tuberculosis? It seems like both are contagious and affect the lungs. I was just wondering if the treatments for TB would also apply to Covid?

One bacteria and one is a virus

Other difference is a vaccine.

I'm sure the thousands of medical researchers worldwide must have overlooked that hypothesis. You should apply to be Surgeon General, OP. But please pay strict attention to the current Resume' thread.

Colds and flus can also affect the lungs, and that should be looked into.
|by Not A Science Nerd||reply 5||06/30/2020|
[quote] and that should be looked into.
I look into a lot.

Maybe a lungectomy will help.

Laugh if you will, R7, but they did do a double lung transplant on one patient.

Is OP being blocked from Google or Wikipedia?
|by Not A Science Nerd||reply 9||06/30/2020|
Yea,h, R8, but it came from Amazon. Looks good for about. week but it won't last.

OP, please submit your résumé to the White House. When Trump fires the Secretary of HHS, you want to make sure you're under consideration.

TB - disease caused by bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis that primarily affects the lungs. It is curable with antibiotic medication taken for 6-9 months.
Covid - virus. Still working out the pathophysiology. No effective treatment as of yet.
Antibiotic medications do not treat viruses.
Vaccine for TB is of variable effectiveness in adults (ie it may not work well) and is not used in the US due to low rates of TB and that the TB vaccine interferes with TB skin testing.

I was offered the children's MMR vaccine during my physical last week. I am 65.
The theory is the molecular surface of the mumps virus is very similar to the corona virus.

No bitch, OP and you come across as so stupid to almost deserve both diseases.
|by Not A Science Nerd||reply 14||06/30/2020|
Aha OP brought up an interesting point. Middle aged and young Eastern Europeans aren't dying or getting infected as much and several doctors think it may have to do with the still-mandatory TB inoculation everyone has to get by law. It is something doctors are looking into. For example, Slovenia has low numbers and never closed bars, cafes or restaurants. Most people who do not have sever co-morbidities are also having milder symptoms and EVERYONE is a pack a day smoker.

That is interesting R13. I have had boosters of that vaccine prior to moving to Africa, where I lived for some time.

Well if anti-vaxxers want a model of their dream vaccine-free world, here it is with the Rona. They won't learn though because they are too stupid to put two and two together.

Mr. Trump—We told you that you are not welcome here.

I love you, r10.

Two medical trials are underway looking at whether the BCG vaccine given for TB might have any application to Covid. They will be evaluated by WHO. It's on WHO's site.
They stress that it's because it seems to have some effects on the immune system, but whether they will be applicable to coronavirus is unclear - in other words, it's a long shot, but good work, OP!

BCG leaves a large scar on the arm. I will pass.

R22 = most superficial homosexual on DL. Would literally rather DIE than get a little scar on his arm.
|by Not A Science Nerd||reply 24||07/01/2020|
Get a tattoo over it, R22.

TB had its own special hospitals that is how big of a deal it was. That's how you can tell if a disease is serious, when it has its own hospital or colony.

Has DL had a massive influx of stupid people recently or is pretending to be a moron just a current favorite way to troll?
