Ipswich hospital records another virus case as reinforcements sent in

“In that way, we knew she was in a place of safety, if you like, in terms of her quarantine, and she was obviously subsequently found to be positive after that test,” he said.

Dr Wakefield said the hospital had delayed some elective surgeries, however it was maintaining all its emergency department functions and was not diverting emergency patients or people requiring acute care.

Instead, Dr Wakefield said staff from neighbouring hospital and health services, including Metro North and Metro South, had been asked to contribute staff to help fill the gap.

“[We’ve done that] to provide support for West Moreton [Hospital and Health Service] but also to be ready should there be more cases and the need to quarantine more staff, that we can do that in an organised way and maintain services,” he said.

Some people turn to herbal medicine for virus without proof

NEW DELHI —
With no approved drugs for the new coronavirus, some people are turning to alternative medicines, often with governments promoting them.

This is most evident in India and China, densely populated countries with a deep history and tradition of touting such treatments, and where there’s sometimes limited access to conventional medicine.

In India, where a lockdown of its 1.3 billion residents is underway, the government faced criticism after claiming some treatments might help prevent infections.
