Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rockstroh, an infectious disease doctor from the Department of Medicine University Hospital in Bonn, Germany and current president of The European AIDS Clinical Society is walking us around the recent COVID-19 pandemic in 4 videos:
"...this is a new virus, and you cannot translate knowledge from other viruses immediately into this new virus presentation."
"...one of the most important messages from the whole testing from Europe where in some countries only patients were tested when they were symptomatic in late stages of the disease and were admitted to the hospital, so you miss all the other ones who are asymptomatic and then can transmit to others because they're not isolated."
"The long-term consequences of being on intensive care unit are still unknown and few data is available"
"And clearly, the wish and the need for developing drugs is huge, but you can't push things too fast."
