US Hospitals Preparing for Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak Learn Not to Panic and Get Well Informed!

COVID-19 outbreak in the US is likely to become global pandemic, the CDC informs:

“This is the time to open up your pandemic plans and see that things are in order,” Dr. Anne Schuch at, a top official of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, urged hospitals as an outbreak of a deadly new coronavirus ravaged much of China.

A larger spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus across the U.S. could overwhelm emergency rooms and cause supply shortages of some crucial medical supplies.

While a majority of those cases are in China — with just 15 confirmed in the U.S. — the CDC has been working with the health-care sector to prepare for the virus to“take a foothold in the U.S,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters.

The 15 US cases include eight in California, one in Massachusetts, two in Washington state, one in Arizona, two in Illinois and one in Wisconsin. Among these cases, there are two instances of person-to-person transmission, one in Illinois and one in California

Gloom and doom news this week

 

It seems every week there’s a scary new report about how man-made climate change is going to cause the collapse of the world’s ice sheets, result in the extinction of up to 1 million animal species and — if that wasn’t bad enough — make our beer very, very expensive. This week, a new policy paper from an Australian think tank claims that those other reports are slightly off; the risks of climate change are actually much, much worse than anyone can imagine.

According to the paper, climate change poses a “near- to mid-term existential threat to human civilization,” and there’s a good chance society could collapse as soon as 2050 if serious mitigation actions aren’t taken in the next decade.

Published by the Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration in Melbourne (an independent think tank focused on climate policy) and authored by a climate researcher and a former fossil fuel executive, the paper’s central thesis is that climate scientists are too restrained in their predictions of how climate change will affect the planet in the near future.

Terrible Fire Consuming Notre Dame Cathedral – A #380

I had the joy to have visited the Notre Dame Cathedral in 2005, 2012 and 2017. Now, I find out through breaking news that this iconic building which began being built in the XII century, in 1163 and finished in 1345 (it took almost 200 years for its final construction) is being burnt during remodeling.

Needless to say that all my family, my daughter and our extended family are with the French people and Parisians.

REPORT EXCERPT 

 

A fire has engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, one of the city’s most iconic sights.

The fire began at 6:50 p.m. local time Monday, the Paris fire department said, and continued to burn hours later.

 

 

 

A French firefighter official told reporters the main structure of the cathedral has been saved and the two iconic main towers are intact and have been saved as well.

French Mayor Anne Hidalgo said that authorities were evacuating people from buildings in the area — including homes close to the cathedral.

 

REPORT LE MONDE

 

L’incendie est parti peu avant 19 heures dans les combles du monument historique le plus visité d’Europe. Après quatre heures de lutte, les pompiers semblent maîtriser les flammes.

Les deux tours de la cathédrale sont sauvées, mais deux tiers de la toiture sont ravagés. Emmanuel Macron, qui a reporté à mardi son allocution, s’est rendu sur place.

De Washington à Berlin, partout l’émotion est grande.

Future of Healthcare is in the Digitization and Digitalization in Medicine for Diagnostics

AR (Augmented Reality) is the future of computing, truly. It transcends traditional computing with 2D monitors, mouse and keyboard – and takes us into spatial computing, with 3D holograms and more natural interactions. It’s a whole new way of interacting with digital content in the context of the real world.

Although there are several forms of AR such as mobile and smart glasses, the most advanced and powerful is immersive AR, which is defined as photorealistic, high-resolution, life-size holograms wrapped in a natural interaction paradigm using direct hand manipulation and voice commands. Immersive AR has immense potential to change how we communicate, collaborate and create… enhancing our human interaction in the process.

Healthcare is one of the primary verticals in AR with the most to gain. In healthcare education, medical schools are starting to train a new generation of healthcare professionals using interactive 3D anatomical models – reducing the need for cadavers and significantly improving training and comprehension.

With immersive 3D medical imaging, AR can assist with everything from diagnosis, to patient communication, to collaborative pre-operative planning, to the surgery itself, where 3D MRI/CT scan is overlaid onto the patient. The benefits of 3D medical imaging go well beyond providing high financial value – they represent the future of care-giving.
