• Covid & Dexamethasone, Toilet Plumes, and Increasing Cases 6-23-2020

    There’s a study coming out of the UK about using a steroid called Dexamethasone to treat COVID19 symptoms. The initial reports look good, but we’ll hold judgement until we see the full study. (The pre-print of this article is now available: https://bit.ly/2VfZrpf). Toilet plumes are also in the news. Apparently, flushing a toilet may throw virus into the air. We’re still learning about how and whether this relates to transmission. Finally, and most importantly, COVID19 cases are rising in many US states as they begin to open back up.
