Health officials around the world are pushing to get more ventilators to treat coronavirus patients, but some doctors actually are moving away from using the machines. Generally speaking, 40% to 50% of patients with severe respiratory distress die while on ventilators, experts say. But 80% or more of coronavirus patients placed on the machines in New York City have died, state and city officials say.

The Viral “Study” About Runners Spreading Coronavirus Is Not Actually a Study

A study by Belgian researchers, a computer simulation that tracks the "spread droplets" and "slipstream" of exhalations, coughs, and sneezes of people who are running, walking and cycling has gone viral. The study chose to bypass all standard science publishing protocols to publish research that has been overhyped and isn't well understood.

Does the amount of virus you are exposed to determine how sick you’ll get?

Is the initial dose of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) related to the disease severity? At the moment, we just don't know. The only way to answer this question definitively is with "experimental challenge studies", which involves intentionally infecting healthy volunteers in order to study diseases and their treatments.

Do We Need to Worry About Coronavirus Mutations?

Worries that the coronavirus might mutate to become even more infectious and deadly are understandable — but mostly unwarranted. It’s true that viruses tend to mutate as they spread across the world over time. And it’s also true that those mutations have the potential to give viruses new, perhaps harmful, traits. But fortunately, the likelihood of that actually happening is extremely slim, according to science.

While researchers caution they're only seeing the tip of the iceberg, the tiny differences between the virus strains suggest shelter-in-place orders are working in some areas and that no one strain of the virus is more deadly than another.
