    I cannot ever see FB posting and never go there (it is a 'Black Hole' that sucks in our lives!) - so what are they doing for the Delta variant that they did not do before?

    Just a guess but I think this is called advertising.

    As Show Pony says, "it's advertising".

    Either though success or failure they have Covid beds to be refilled with paying patients for stupid people doing stupid things getting Covid.

    Dine-in all along the Boulevard is a spreader event for Delta. Coffee with the buddies or lunch with an associate doesn't matter to Delta. Coughing, sneezing, loud talking, laughing from a asymptomatic person can infect those close by not wearing masks eating or drinking. Even if you are jabbed up, you can still be a spreader.

    For those exposed exhibiting symptoms with money if presented to a hospital that offers monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies treatment can turn a positive test to negative in 3 days. Trump and Giuliani both received these treatments.

    The simple explanation is these treatments keep Covid from multiplying and allows the antibodies from a jab fight the remaining Covid. Covid Pneumonia can then treated with antibiotic.

    The drug used in Cebu is Remdisivir


    It is unclear if any Dumaguete hospitals are offering this treatment.

    Erm, no.
    Antibiotics work for pneumonia caused by bacteria.
    Antibiotics do nothing against a virus.

    Right, the current protocol is to discontinue antibiotic treatment if Covid is diagnosed.

    Some Covid patients have secondary bacterial infections - as is the case in many viral infections where the virus has weakened certain organs or damaged the immune response and the bacteria become 'opportunistic'. In those cases the antibiotics will be targeting the bacterial infection which, if untreated, could be fatal. This is something the doctor has to take into account in a full treatment of a patient and so antibiotics may be one of his tools.

    Thanks - so basically they are doing nothing new. If they were then people should be asking why the same procedures were not used for other variants.

    I noted in the UK that Care Homes were stating in the media that as soon as residents showed signs of Covid then they were being barrier-nursed. They took no account of asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic infections and so allowed the virus to spread - with huge death tolls. I am waiting for legal cases to be brought against them and will ensure the bereaved families are aware of that point (i.e. that many Care Homes failed to take appropriate measures at the appropriate time (IMO) and so were responsible for the huge toll of illness and death). In a contagious disease with vulnerable people crowded within an institution then barrier nursing is the very first thing to introduce - and if Care Homes did not know that then it is quite shocking).
