    Unhappy Illinois couple dead in murder-suicide after man feared they had coronavirus

    An Illinois man who feared he and his girlfriend had contracted coronavirus fatally shot the woman before turning the gun on himself last Thursday night, authorities said.

    Patrick Jesernik, 54, and 59-year-old Cheryl Schriefer — who both eventually tested negative for the virus — were found by authorities inside their Lockport Township home, according to the sheriff’s office in Will County, Illinois.

    The pair, who were found in separate rooms, both had gunshot wounds to the head.

    A revolver carrying three live rounds was found next to Jesernik. Two spent shell casings were also found nearby, authorities said.

    Jesernik’s parents had asked police to conduct a welfare check after not hearing from their son, the report said.

    Two days before the murder-suicide, Schriefer was tested for the virus as she was having difficultly breathing, family members told investigators.

    Jesernik believed the two were suffering from the bug, according to family.

    Last Friday, an autopsy was performed on both of them and they tested negative for the coronavirus, authorities said.

    Default Some steroid medications may raise coronavirus risk

    People taking a certain class of steroids for inflammatory conditions such as asthma, allergies and arthritis may be at increased risk from the new coronavirus, experts say.

    Glucocorticoid medications suppress the immune system, so people taking them may not be able to fight off the coronavirus, according to an editorial published online March 31 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

    These people may also have more severe illness if they're infected by the new coronavirus because glucocorticoids suppress the body's own steroid response to infection, the authors said.

    People with primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease) and secondary adrenal insufficiency occurring in hypopituitarism should also take extra precautions, said the authors, journal Editor-in-Chief Dr. Paul Stewart, from the University of Leeds, England, and deputy editors Dr. Ursula Kaiser, from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and Dr. Raghavendra Mirmira, from the University of Chicago.

    If patients develop symptoms such as a dry continuous cough and fever, they should double their oral glucocorticoid dose immediately and continue doing so until the fever has subsided, the authors said. They'll require injectable glucocorticoid treatment if their condition worsens, according to their editorial examining the coronavirus pandemic's impact on endocrine patients.

    People with diabetes who contract COVID-19 also appear to be at risk of more severe illness than those without diabetes, the authors wrote.

    Research from Wuhan, China, found COVID-19 patients with diabetes and high blood pressure were at increased risk for severe illness and death.


    "In our professional lives, we have not witnessed a health care crisis of this magnitude and severity," Stewart and colleagues wrote.

    They noted that researchers have made progress in learning how the new coronavirus enters cells and spread from one person to another, and some have made preliminary findings on how the coronavirus interacts with the endocrine system.

    "Endocrine-related targets are at the forefront of discovery science as we collectively tackle this pandemic," the authors wrote in a journal news release.

    Thumbs up Here's how to make a homemade coronavirus COVID-19 mask in 35 seconds

    Stop the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 by wearing this homemade mask created in just 45 seconds

    The United States Surgeon General has recently released a video on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) YouTube Channel detailing how American's can make a homemade mask in just 35 seconds. This video has come after the CDC, and the US Surgeon General has recommended everyone to wear face masks or a cloth covering if they decide to leave their home and go outside.

    The video details that a face covering can be created out of many things such as an old t-shirt, bandanna, or basically anything cloth. According to the CDC, these makeshift masks can help hinder the spread of COVID-19, so here's how to make them. You will need the following items: two rubber bands, an old t-shirt (or any other piece of cloth that can be folded), and 35 seconds of your time. Follow the above instructions from the Surgeon General, and you will have created your face covering.

    Exactly. I love the humorous ways people find to encourage others to stay at home. Staying at home is the single most important thing we can do to help others, especially those who can’t stay at home because they’re working at the frontline, running the hospitals, grocery stores and everything else. Stay at home and find reasons to smile and things that uplift the spirit. And stay healthy as best as we can to not further complicate the situation in hospitals because we show up with a broken leg or something.

    Default J.K Rowling Reveals That She Had All The Symptoms Of Covid-19 But Now She Has Recovered

    Harry Potter series author J.K Rowling revealed on Monday that she had all the symptoms of the novel coronavirus for the past 2 weeks even though she didn’t get tested. She took to announce this on her Twitter handle. Despite this she said, she recovered without any treatment or tests by following her doctor husband Neil Murray to manage her symptoms. She even shared a video of the breathing technique that she said worked miracles on her symptoms as nothing else had. The video is of a doctor from Queens hospital demonstrating a breathing technique that’ll help you clear your respiratory organs.



    As you can imagine, there were many who were concerned for the author’s health and send in their concerns and good wishes. She took to Twitter again to calm her fans and said that she has completely recovered and asked people to try out the said method saying that it has no side effects and it’s worth a try.



    As Jo said, it couldn’t hurt to try it, right? We’re glad she is feeling better now. The author recently launched a new website called Harry Potter At Home to help engage children while they’re at home. Harry Potter spin-off book, The Tales Of Beedle The Bard has also been turned into audiobook recently and is available on audible. She also has the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them coming up in 2021. The production of the movie was put on hold due to the pandemic.

    Default Can my pet catch COVID-19?

    TOLEDO, Ohio — So many people have questions about the coronavirus and with news of a tiger in New York testing positive, pet owners want to know if their furry friends are in danger.

    Can my pet get COVID-19 from me or any other human?

    In short, no.

    The CDC says there's no evidence to suggest we can spread the virus to our pets, or that they can spread it to us.

    There haven't been any pets to test positive for COVID-19 in the United States to this point.

    The AMVA says there are two dogs and two cats outside the U.S. who tested positive after living with infected people, but that's it around the world.

    Should I care for my pets differently during the pandemic?

    The AMVA says, if you're not infected, keep caring for them the same.

    The CDC says if you are sick with COVID-19, don't isolate with your pets. You can drop them off with a healthy family member or friend.

    Regardless, try to limit contact between strangers and your pets.

    Pets aside, can COVID-19 spread to wild animals?

    Yes, sometimes, the CDC says.

    A tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York was the first U.S. animal case and the CDC says it's still learning about this virus, but it looks like it can spread from people to animals in some cases.

    Thumbs up 103-year-old Italian says 'courage, faith' helped beat virus

    ROME (AP) — To recover from the coronavirus, as she did, Ada Zanusso recommends courage and faith, the same qualities that have served her well in her nearly 104 years.

    Italy, along with neighboring France, has Europe’s largest population of what has been dubbed the “super old" — people who are at least 100. As the nation with the world’s highest number of COVID-19 deaths, Italy is looking to its super-old survivors for inspiration.

    “I’m well, I’m well,” Zanusso said Tuesday during a video call with The Associated Press from the Maria Grazia Residence for the elderly in Lessona, a town in the northern region of Piedmont. “I watch TV, read the newspapers.

    Zanusso wore a protective mask, as did her family doctor of 35 years beside her, Carla Furno Marchese, who also donned eyewear and a gown that covered her head.

    Asked about her illness, Zanusso is modest: “I had some fever.”

    Her doctor said Zanusso was in bed for a week.

    “We hydrated her because she wasn’t eating, and then we thought she wasn’t going to make it because she was always drowsy and not reacting,” Furno Marchese said.

    “One day she opened her eyes again and resumed doing what she used to before,” Furno Marchese said. The doctor recalled when Zanusso was able to sit up, then managed to get out of bed.

    What helped her get through the illness? “Courage and strength, faith," Zanusso said. It worked for her, so she advises others who fall ill to also “give yourself courage, have faith.”

    COVID-19 can cause mild or moderate symptoms, and most of those who are infected recover. But the elderly and those with existing health problems can be at high risk for more serious illness.

    The virus has killed nearly 18,000 people in Italy and over 88,000 worldwide. The World Health Organization says 95% of those who have died in Europe were over 60 years old.

    Under Italy’s five-week-long lockdown, which is aimed at containing the spread of infections that have overwhelmed hospitals, visitors aren’t allowed at homes for the elderly.

    Her doctor asked Zanusso what she would like to do when “they open the doors.”

    “I’d like to take a lovely walk,” she replied. And your three great-grandchildren? “Watch them play together.”
    Deaths, hospitalizations and new infections are leveling off in Italy, and Premier Giuseppe Conte is expected to announce in the coming days how long the lockdown will remain in place, with expectations that some restrictions could be eased.

    For now, Zanusso is isolated from other residents as she awaits a follow-up swab test to confirm she is negative for the virus.
    She grew up in Treviso, in the northeastern Veneto region, where she worked for many years in the textile industry.

    Zanusso, who turns 104 on Aug. 16, had four children — three of whom are living — and has four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

    “She’s old, but healthy, with no chronic illness,’’ her doctor said.

    This week, Milan newspaper Corriere della Sera devoted an entire page to the stories of super-old survivors, called “healing at 100 years old.” The inspirational portraits are a counterpoint to news of large numbers of deaths among elderly people living in Italian nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities.

    Of the victims, most elderly weren’t tested for COVID-19 if they died in nursing homes, so the numbers don’t figure into Italy’s overall coronavirus death toll, which is the highest in the world.

    Medical staff “went through a very hard time,’’ said Furno Marchese, the doctor. “It was a great emergency with so many residents ill, so to see a positive outcome was very rewarding, not only for me, but for all the people who worked hard here nonstop."

    Outside the nonprofit, 61-bed Maria Grazia Residence, the Italian flag flies at half-staff in tribute to those who died of the virus.

    Angry Florida governor falsely claims the coronavirus hasn’t killed anyone under 25

    (CNN) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis falsely claimed Thursday that the novel coronavirus hasn’t killed anyone under 25 nationwide while discussing a timeline for reopening schools in the state.

    “This particular pandemic is one where, I don’t think nationwide there’s been a single fatality under 25. For whatever reason it just doesn’t seem to threaten, you know, kids,” DeSantis said at an educators’ meeting to discuss distance learning.
    “And we lose in Florida between five and 10 kids a year for the flu. This one, for whatever reason, much more dangerous if you’re 65 and plus than the flu, no doubt about that, if you’re younger it just hasn’t had an impact. So that should factor into how we’re viewing this.”

    “I think the data on that has been 100% consistent,” he continued. “I’ve not seen any deviation on that.”
    In reality, the CDC reports on its website that four people between the ages of 15 and 24 and one person between the ages of one and four have died. CNN has also reported on the death of a newborn in Connecticut on April 1 and an infant in Illinois last month whose death is being investigated as possibly caused by the virus.
    Young people can also serve as carriers of the virus, transmitting to the elderly and people with underlying conditions — those most at risk.
