People around me are really starting to get anxious from health and economic point of view. I mean literally physically panicking!
Hope they don't call the ambulance for a panic attack. Health services are already busy these days.

Panick attacks can be really scary If you dont know what they feel like & suddenly you have chest pains, what would you do?

Yeah, not the best time to need to go to hospital.

Indeed, the doctor on the video advises against any injury-prone activity. He says they don't know what they're going to do if they receive a trauma patient this weekend.

In Bern I remember during the first lockdown, and coming up to it we would hear more ambulance sirens. Maybe three or four times a day, compared to the BC (before corona) daily average of 0. Then it got quiet again in later April.

In recent weeks, we've started hearing it again, more ambulance sirens.
Yes!! I was lying in bed thinking just that the other night...and tried to put the thought away as I felt I was being too paranoid, but it is true.

My dear neighbor who is quite elderly and doesn't believe in the danger of the virus, hasn't been seen in some time, I am worried. No lights on inside either...he had travelled to Vienna and then I saw him as he was coming home and he told me not to share the elevator as he was ill. I have knocked on his door, no answer.

Calm down...

But quite seriously, breathing exercises have helped in the past to at least keep a person functional enough and out of acute care.

People who candidate and accept the role to lead a canton/country should understand what it entails. Its not just good times, now the shit has hit the fan and politicians are behaving like headless chickens busy pointing fingers at each other.

I truly feel for the people working at hospitals, having to worry about maybe not beeing able to treat the next patient.

While most ppl are fine, many are lost.
Where is the leadership to guide us througj this mess?

A person who never had a panick attack will not know he/she is having one.
Even less about breathing excersises.
So I think a persons first reaction with chest pain, would indeed be to call an ambulance.

A lot of ppl refrained from seeking medical care last spring. Some scared to catch covid & some not wanting to add extra load to the already strechted medical system. Some of those ppl died, so if one has chestpains etc, not knowing what it is need to seek medical care asap without having to worry.

By the time the panic attack arrives, not much besides calling the ambulance. But it seems a lack of personal responsibility to miss all the symptoms and do not act before the crisis: chronic stress, high-blood pressure, bad sleeping, etc.

I've seen panic attacks in my family. Usually is manly men that never look for help. The macho thing is to have a crisis instead of acting responsibly before the crisis.

Re: Coronavirus

Reading this gloom and doom thread i can see why people have panic attacks. Panic mode = weaker immune system. And then some say, that covid causes hair loss. For sure. Stressing 24/7 is also causing hair loss.

Especially if you also feel as if you can't breathe and you're going to pass out. The first time I ever had a panic attack I even started losing my ability to perceive reality. I felt as if the whole entire world was only the few metres around me. I was in a crowded setting, but fortunately a good friend realized what was happening and took me away to a quiet spot and recover. It was an awful, awful experience.

Well, I stopped reading posts regularly in this thread but iirc, no one has ever disputed that lockdowns work. They question was wheter or the detrimental effects of a (second) lockdown should be considered and to what degree.
Not exactly, I also try to avoid this thread, but I know there are a few people who disputed even that, that the lockdowns work. That's probably your opinion and make the error to think it's shared by all the "rebels" here.

It's gonna climb. We had hundreds per day if I remember well (600-800, it peaked at 1000 looks like, can't see the numbers coz US bloomin' elections are on the place CV used to be listed, dang it). Until just few days ago.

Gov will get respirators into nursing homes in CZ.

Tuesdays are always lower. There are ebbs and flows to the testing regime.

The positivity rate of 28% hints are what tomorrow could look like. probably 10k+

Hospitalisations have been climbing steadily.
