What We Can Learn from the 1918 Pandemic

TASA ID: 1056

The social impact of the Spanish Flu and Covid-19 are eerily similar. There are many things we can learn from the 1918 Pandemic’s impact on society, the economy and employee behaviors.

One of the most important lessons we have learned from the Spanish Flu is that we cannot ease our guard too quickly. In the summer of 1918, we thought we had conquered the pandemic; however, it lasted through the spring of 1919 because we underestimated its resistance.

The Backside of COVID-19, or What The World May Look Like After The Virus Peaks©

TASA ID: 826

There is, we believe, a false expectation that after the virus peaks in a few weeks or days, that things will go back to normal.  That is most likely not the case.  In perhaps a year or longer, we should have a vaccine, which based upon our experiences with other viral vaccines may be partially effective against COVID-19 . Based upon the influenza vaccines, the effectiveness in preventing an infection is between 23% and 60% depending upon the virus and the vaccine. Essentially, entire countries will have to be immunized.  The alternative is that enough of us get the virus so that our society develops the “herd immunity.”  We also don’t know how effective or long-lasting that vaccine will be.  It is possible that the treatment could provide life-long immunity, but the prospects for that are, at this point, unknown, and probably very low- based upon the experience with influenza.

A 45-year-old Hispanic male presented to clinic with a chief complaint of progressive blurry vision that started approximately four days earlier in his right eye. Accompanying symptoms included light sensitivity and ocular irritation. The patient denied any ocular discharge, ocular trauma or recent illness.

The patient’s ocular history was remarkable for penetrating keratoplasty (PK), which was performed 25 to 30 years ago in both eyes. At this visit, the patient denied using a topical steroid for maintenance therapy. His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/70 OD, 20/50 OS. His anterior segment findings are provided (Figure 1). We observed no palpable preauricular node (PAN) at that visit. The rest of the exam was unremarkable.

The number of individuals using these devices are living longer lives and enjoy a higher quality of life after receiving these life-saving implantable cardiac devices. Unfortunately, there are still several factors which can cause these devices to fail and not deliver the therapy to these patients as they are designed for. Some of these may include cardiac pacemaker lead failures 4, ICD lead failures 5 , pulse generator failures 6, interactions with electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems 7 , Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities 8, infection, and others which can potentially affect the proper functioning of these implantable cardiac devices.
