Dr Zaranyika
Pancho Mulongeni
06:13:37
Thank you! The question I have: how will health systems in Africa cope with the exodus of health workers? For example the NHS here in the UK is hiring aggressively, with positions open to Commonwealth?
Jean Mburu
06:15:06
Is covid-19 causing DM as a totally new disease or is it unmasking patients who were already pre-DM?

06:27:24
Thank you Dr. Lenon for an excellent presentation
Pancho Mulongeni
06:27:32
That excited me indeed, I wrote an opinion article in Namibia about this possibility, given that there was a famous cluster of SARS in Hong Kong that was fecal-oral
Gift Wilson Ngwende
06:28:41
Thanks Lenon for the excellent overview on SARS-Co-2 and neurologic manifestations.

James Jowi

Excellent presentations. I have noted a patient who presented with acute Ischemic Mononeuritis, a foot-drop. This patient is primarily being managed by Dr. Josephine Ojoo, and interestingly the patient has acute occlusive PAD-Peripheral Arterial Disease. Has anyone observed this in their practice?
Max Patana
06:46:47
I think generally SARS Cov-2 is going to confuse us. I have a patient I was managing for diabetes 74year old female, developed DFU had BKA was diagnosed with Covid-19 before the stitches were removed. She survived she's at home. I'm yet to review her though. So, quite unexpected but here we are.
Tapiwanashe Bwakura

Thanks colleagues for the excellent talks during this session
Lenon Gwaunza
06:47:37
Thank you for the comment Prof Walker. Delirium has been described in covid19. I had presented it as an encephalopathy. I understand delirium can be due to stroke, encephalitis, etc
Dominique G. CHIMANUKA

πŸ‘πŸ‘Very good presentations
Trust Zaranyika
06:55:18
@ Max DFU ( diabetic foot ulcer) question. Yes there are postulated mechanisms namely inflammation, ischaemia/CAC, peripheral arterial disease and vitamin D deficiency worsening diabetic neuropathy
