  Fighting the flu? This technology tries to help you get well faster Get a doctor to visit you instead of visiting a sick waiting area or arrange a virtual visit.As one of the worst influenza outbreaks on record sweeps across America, that’s a question hundreds of scientists, inventors and health officials are working hard to answer.

Like other viruses, it is believed to have started in animals and spread to humans. Animal-to-person spread was suspected after the initial outbreak in The term coronavirus includes a family of seven known viruses that cause respiratory tract illnesses that range from the common cold to such

Respiratory syncytial virus causes flu - or cold- like symptoms and may easily be confused with those other illnesses . But there’s another virus out there that can cause also cause these symptoms: It’s called As with a mild cold or flu , respiratory syncytial virus symptoms usually include a runny nose

PHOENIX - An outbreak of illness in a major league clubhouse looks something like this:

Dodgers pitcher Brock Stewart wore a surgical mask as he walked to his locker at Camelback Ranch. A quartet of air filtration devices designed to prevent the spread of germs lined the room. Strength and conditioning coach Brandon McDaniel administered vitamins to the healthy. Matt Kemp exaggerated a cough as he staggered to his locker.

Let's hope this is not the last year of Clayton Kershaw in a Dodgers uniform

  Let's hope this is not the last year of Clayton Kershaw in a Dodgers uniform In any other year, this trip would have felt like a complete waste of time. I rolled into Peoria Sports Complex on Sunday afternoon to check out Clayton Kershaw's first Dodgers start of the spring, and it lasted about five minutes.Typical Kershaw. Looked like June. Needed 11 pitches. Retired three Seattle Mariners big leaguers. None of them made good contact. It was over before it started. Yawn.In any other year, this day would be a bore, but this year is different. This year, the mere sight of Kershaw standing on a mound is worth seeing, whenever possible, wherever possible.

Viruses like the novel coronavirus are shells holding genetic material. All of this technical detail could help scientists forecast the future of this pandemic. If the virus did enter human The virus could still be circulating in the animal population and might again jump to humans, ready to cause an outbreak .

To me it looks like a recipe for a systematic over inflation of death counts, designed to disallow or This is considered ‘reckless advice.’ For pointing out the over-reporting of Covid-19 deaths and There is no increased mortality anywhere to be seen . Whilst we are told about outbreaks of Covid

"If you're sick, go home!" closer Kenley Jansen said. There wasn't much of an audience for his message. The clubhouse was mostly empty. The Dodgers were either eating breakfast or lifting weights or huddling in a quarantine or not even in the building.

A virus causing chills, fatigue and other flulike symptoms overtook the Dodgers on Wednesday. The number of affected totaled 24 or 25, manager Dave Roberts said. The team sent the ill home. The medical staff hoped the symptoms would subside in one to three days, Roberts said.

"I haven't seen anything like this," Roberts said.

The illness caused widespread changes to Roberts' lineup for Wednesday's game against San Diego. Hyun-Jin Ryu was scratched from his start and replaced by Wilmer Font. The list of affected position players was extensive: Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Austin Barnes, Logan Forsythe, Enrique Hernandez, Kyle Farmer and Trayce Thompson were all listed on the initial travel roster, but weren't included in the lineup.

Influenza B is trying to escape our vaccine

  Influenza B is trying to escape our vaccine Hell hath no fury like a virus scorned. Influenza looks much scarier when it's falsely colored and viewed under an electron micrograph. The Flu feels like one big thing. You get your Flu Shot to protect against The Flu during Flu Season. But part of what makes influenza so dangerous is that it’s an astonishingly diverse virus.Though we’re only aware of it for a few months each year, influenza is constantly circling the world, and as it goes it accumulates new mutations in its genome. Sometimes these mutations don’t change anything substantive, but sometimes they give the virus a survival advantage.

Josh Fields was slated to pitch a session of live batting practice with Rich Hill. Instead, the Dodgers sent Fields home. Hill reported no symptoms - although the team did place a filtration system next to his locker. Alex Wood joked the device was necessary to protect Hill, who at 38 is the second-oldest player on the roster.

Hill left the clubhouse in the morning to throw a session of live batting practice on a field on the minor-league side of the complex. After three innings, Hill returned to find the machine roaring as he spoke to a few reporters. "Very loud," Hill said.

The coaches and support staff were not immune. Roberts took his coaching staff to dinner on Tuesday night. Nothing felt amiss, he said. The next morning, first-base coach George Lombard and several members of the training staff turned up sick. Danny Lehmann, an assistant coach who handles game planning, replaced Lombard.

"We're short-handed a little bit," Roberts said.

Roberts cobbled together a lineup to face the Padres. Joc Pederson and Andrew Toles started in the outfield. Chris Taylor played shortstop. A day after catching, Yasmani Grandal served as the designated hitter. Max Muncy started at third base. The other four starters - Tim Locastro, Henry Ramos, Will Smith and Edwin Rios - had combined for one major-league at-bat, which Locastro took during the final weekend of the 2017 season.

The Dodgers had not yet determined where the virus began. Corey Seager dealt with food poisoning last week, but that appears unrelated to the current situation. Roberts hoped for more clarity in the coming days.

"We're trying to get to the bottom of it," Roberts said.


Hill goes long

The pitchers in the Dodgers starting rotation have gone one or two innings in their first outings this spring. Clayton Kershaw threw one inning. So did Alex Wood. Kenta Maeda threw two.

Hill opted for three innings, albeit in the controlled environment of live batting practice on a minor-league field. Asked if the extra work was related to Hill's zeal for building up calluses to prevent blisters, Hill shrugged.

Trout to wear face guard after getting beaned Sunday

  Trout to wear face guard after getting beaned Sunday Baseball's best player is taking no chances. After being hit in the head by an errant pitch during a Cactus League contest Sunday, Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout announced plans to try wearing a face guard on his helmet.He'll don the new headgear for the first time Monday versus the Cincinnati Reds."I was thinking about (wearing) it before, but that sealed the deal," Trout told Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register on Monday, almost 24 hours after the beaning.A fastball from Texas Rangers reliever Erik Goeddel hit Trout in the head during the sixth inning, sending his helmet flying.

This resulted in the first professional football team in Russia which after the Revolution became the core of Moscow Dynamo team. There are countless books in the world, and whoever you are, whatever you’re feeling, there is definitely a book out there, just waiting for you to discover it.

"It was just me-related," Hill said. "You have to build up. This was the first time I've gotten up three times since last year. And the next outing, I'd like to be ready to go, three, maybe four innings."

Hill indicated he would make his next appearance in a major-league game. He spent a significant portion of spring training in 2017, his first as a Dodger, pitching in minor-league settings. Hill allowed 27 runs in 28 Cactus League innings during the past two springs.

"It's efficient, being able to have a controlled environment in the beginning," Hill said. "Where you can experiment a little bit more, and stuff like that. I don't really like going out to games and experimenting with pitches, when you're trying to compete and get guys out."
