Description

There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet Media that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don't have to. This season we tackle football concussions, heartbreak, 5G networks, sleep, free healthcare, police use of force, asteroids and more.

Healthcare workers across the U.S. are saying they don’t have enough protective gear to keep them safe against the coronavirus. They’re having to reuse masks, and they’re worried that they may have to resort to homemade cloth masks. Is all this safe? Plus, reports are saying that ibuprofen, the stuff in Advil, is making people with coronavirus sicker. But what does the science say? To find out we spoke to infectious disease expert Professor Raina MacIntyre, industrial hygienist Dr. Rachael Jones, public health researcher Professor Carlos Del Rio, and cardiologist Dr. Yogendra Kanthi.  UPDATE 4/23/20: An earlier version of this episode said that health care workers using N95 masks had roughly half the infection rate of workers using classic surgical masks. We’ve updated the episode to clarify that the study only compared the infection rates to a control group, not each other. Here’s a link to our transcript: https://bit.ly/3agVF4i Selected References The best study we could find on cloth masks: https://bit.ly/3bmRHaI  Study showing that N95 masks are best for healthcare workers: https://bit.ly/2xfvKLT  The Lancet letter theorizing about why ibuprofen might be risky: https://bit.ly/2QEDFt6    This episode was produced by Meryl Horn, Wendy Zukerman, Rose Rimler, Michelle Dang, Laura Morris and Sinduja Srinivasan.

As Covid-19 cases rise in the U.S., healthcare workers are already struggling to keep up. In a different kind of episode, we bring you an interview with Dr. Antoinette Ward, who is leading Covid-19 testing at a major hospital in Atlanta — and finding ways to treat the rapidly increasing number of patients. This interview comes from iHeartRadio’s The Women.

maybe being thin skinned but the need to throw in the fortune cookie comment was lacking in awareness given the hate that trump has instigated against Asian Americans. There was something subconsciously needling about that throw in, like a little dog whistle to the haters

#Coronavirus: Sweden goes rogue https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-52704836 This model seems to be keeping their hospitals empty by refusing medical care to the elderly. The measure of a society is made from how we treat each and every human. This is not a model I would like to see in my country, and to be honest, anywere in the world.

The asteroid spacecraft operation won’t work due to the fact that the core of a asteroid is much too dense to break and the outer asteroid parts will eventually reform due to the gravity of the core. Even if the ship breaks the core the small parts will still have a high speed and can still hit earth and do damage

One of the best science podcasts out there. Problem here, you are asking wrong question this time Wendy. You should ask if mask worn by those infected would lover the risk for the rest of the herd ;-) Czechs were 'advertising it' as - you protect me and I protect you. Not- me! I only have to care for me! Excellent PR. Those not wearing it were 'selfish' and all those ppl under lockdown, many not working were sewing face masks for their community, so they would not go nuts.
