Very informative, and quite pertinent and relavent still today.
The donning and removing of masks does require a great deal of care - if a mask is really effective at trapping and preventing the passage of virions through the mask, then it is going to be concentrating them on its surface or interior or someplace, and potentially that concentration can be easily transmitted by contact or the creation of a spray - at the very least one uses gloved hands to carefully, slowly remove a mask without allowing it to touch one's face.
In a real biocontainement facilty - think Ebola grade containment lab - one would not begin to remove their biosuits without decontaminating the external surfaces first with a bleach or other very anti viral lethal mist or shower or something or all of the above - a task usually performed only by serious virologists, with observers to verify the safe execution of the removal.
Except that it was done in Africa by a whole lot of folks fighting Ebola. The fact that they finally developed an effective anti-Ebola vaccine really helped turn the tide in the fight against Ebola. Ultimately, the same will be true for current Corona virus.
We really need to know why H5N1 and Sars and Covid 19 create such intense cytokine reactions in some patients. I suspect we will at some point through research.
I was intrigued that statins were felt to be protective with H5N1 victims - not sure what that means exactly, but there might be clues there worth looking at carefully.
I have not heard that statins are felt to have any effect in the Covid 19 illness, however. Google does though
To keep things in perspective - we are expecting 36,000 deaths in the US this flu season due to flu..... Whether Covid 19 surpasses this remains to be seen
