WATCH TODAY AT 9:00 AM - Week 31 Questions for COVID-19 Update for October 22, 2020
Compiled by Rotary Club of Houston Past President Kathy Fenninger

(Transmission)
Last week you warned against complacency as positive numbers dropped to 5%. Last I heard they are now up to 5.6%. A Baylor doctor attributes it to mask fatigue, changing weather and businesses getting more crowded. Your thoughts?
Describe the calculation of the positivity rate.
Dr. Persse, you mentioned in a press conference that those recently infected tend to be younger. Are they transmitting to their peers or back to their families?
Dr. McDeavitt at Baylor, said we are already in a new surge with the majority of cases in healthy 20-30 year old’s. Is that sounding rather normal and more like the flu?
I understand you need to self-quarantine if you have been in close contact with someone who is positive. A number of HISD campuses have closed temporarily because of “a” presumed or confirmed case. Can you explain the protocol?
On October 18 Mayor Turner announced that sanctuaries and faith-based organizations are beginning to reopen at 25% capacity. My church has been open for weeks and say they are now at 75%. What gives? Please also explain the H.E.R. task force.
Airlines had a good week with the recent news that air circulation in planes is better than our homes. Are you a believer and will you take a flight soon? When you think it’s safe, I’m right behind you!
Colorado’s governor took 12% of their death numbers off their list because their totals were inflated. How accurate are ours?
An acquaintance just surfaced for the first time since March and told us she had been infected with COVID following an unrelated surgery and then hospitalized for months. How frequent is infection after a non Covid related hospitalization?
California news indicated that several large hospital systems turned away Covid patients who though seriously ill, had no insurance. That sounds unethical. What is our local philosophy?
Is it true that outdoor seating has no capacity limits in restaurants? They looked rather compressed.
Dr. Shah: When will the county threat level decrease?
Haven’t heard this question asked-Is is safe to breastfeed (wearing a mask) if you fear you may have been exposed to COVID?

(Research)
Research out now has resurrected the theory about blood types. “Patients with types O or B blood had less severe Covid.” Only 61% required a ventilator vs 84% of Type A or AB. Please explain.
Johns Hopkins Medicine mentioned the “Factor D” protein that could prevent COVID. Can you explain this?
The Lancet published a study about “Dublin-Boston score” that can predict which patients will develop a severe form of COVID.

(Testing)
I’ve taken 2 COVID tests. Do they get reported as 2 people or 1?
Adaptive testing works backward to identify how a person got infected. Contact tracing looks to see who you’ve been near and try to break the chain for the future by letting them know. Are we using both methods? Is one better than the other?
The government in the UK now believe “whole population” testing once a week might restore normal life while awaiting a vaccine. Would that help in Houston?
What test for Covid is absolutely accurate? I keep hearing that even a fast response negative may require retesting.
A Covid Rapid Testing Pilot Program for Texas Schools was announced. This sounds like a proactive plan but does rapid testing give a false sense of security?

(Vaccines)
If I’ve had COVID, when can I volunteer to donate antibodies?
COVAX is the world’s largest ever collaborative vaccine project. It aims to provide affordable vaccines to 20% of the world’s population. This sounds great, but I’ve seen this listed along with conspiracy theories. What have you heard about this?
Pfizer is stockpiling several hundred thousand doses of their vaccine and by the end of October they supposedly will know if it works. Are all late phase trials doing that?
Research history shows clinical trials in phase 3 have a 50% chance of success. If multiple trials succeed, how will doctors decide the best vaccine to give patients or will this be more like “go to a pharmacy and get whatever shot” they have available or will we be subjected to endless commercials?
Some hospitals are preparing special storage for vaccines. Do all vaccines require shipping in cold containers? If so, what will the challenges be to distribute the vaccine where needed? Why are the preparations for this vaccine as complex as this is just one of many needing storage?
What is an mRNA delivery mechanism?
There are air purifiers that can be worn around your neck to create a 3-foot zone of clean air. Have you heard anything about how useful these are?

I don't give a beep for Mr. Turner as mayor, but I sure am sorry Mr. Keith Wade is gone. Turner would be wise to emulate Mr. Wade in the good work he did.
