A concerned group of local doctors is urging the city and county to proactively protect residents of the Midland area from the threat of COVID-19 if they test positive. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has taken an important step to stem the spread of a novel coronavirus in Texas by closing restaurants and schools, among other measures. The article notes that Abbott's announcement marks a notable change after spending the day addressing the Texas Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPS) on all issues related to the virus. On Thursday, a letter was sent to city and county business leaders urging them to "proactively protect all residents of the Midlands from the dangers of coronavirus" if positive tests are confirmed, a press release said.

Two years later, I made the biggest decision of my life and decided to apply to medical school and made a big decision in my life. I wanted to be a bearer of hope and compassion for the needy, just like a doctor, but I left a lasting impression from the moment I decided to study medicine. After three and a half years I have fulfilled all my pre-medical requirements and completed a Bachelor in Public Health and a Master in Health Administration.
Recently, I received a message from a colleague from South Texas that a doctor had tried some treatments and was able to put a patient (COVID-19) into intensive care. The injury was very serious and an amputation was imminent, so I suggested that he leave town and see a specialist. A doctor in Mexico did not give him much chance to save his arm because the local doctor believed that the amputations were imminent.
One of the doctors prescribed albuterol on a nebuliser, but Lloyd said it didn't help much, so he kept asking for budesonides.
We need early detection and treatment, "Bartlett added, pointing out that the health care system in the United States relies on prevention and early detection, not just treatment and testing. Moreover, providing the latest national recommendations would significantly reduce the likelihood that local health systems will be overwhelmed. Reducing the spread as quickly as possible would protect not only Lloyd's health, but also those of his family and friends, he said. He said he told his doctor that there is no treatment or testing in West Texas that is not easily accessible, and there are no treatments for it.
