RE: The Sanatorium Movement, and a Collage for LMAC

in Let's Make a Collage2 months ago

As a nurse I understand your collage, I would only add:

The BCG vaccine (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin), used in the prevention of tuberculosis, was developed by two researchers, Albert Calmette and Camille Guérin in 1921.

Its discovery made it possible to eradicate the terrible tuberculosis.

Today 2021, studies are underway to determine if the BCG vaccine has an impact on the reduction of Covid-19 mortality.

In countries that have a policy of vaccinating all newborns, it has been observed that the mortality rate of Covid 19 is lower.

I liked your collage and the mix of art and health.

Thank you @eve66. Thanks for the reference to BCG. I was planning to expand this theme into a more complete science blog and I'll be sure to include BCG in that blog. I am aware of the studies revolving around BCG and COVID. Fascinating. There are so many unanswered questions about COVID. I remember reading one study that showed reduced incidence in people who have the thalassemia trait. And more severe disease course in people who have elevated ferritin. In a few years we will know so much more. But, right now people are dying and we really are stumbling around.

Thank you for appreciating my collage. It was a relaxing exercise, as it always is. Take care my friend.
