It's patients hospitalized with COVID-19. Both Type 1 and Type 2.

Prof Francesco Rubino, from King’s College London, is leading the call for a full investigation into a possible link between the two diseases. Having seen a rise in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in people who have caught coronavirus, some doctors are even considering the possibility that the virus ‒ by disrupting sugar metabolism ‒ could be inducing an entirely new form of diabetes.

Dr Sathish Thirunavukkarasu, an investigator at Canada’s McMaster University, has conducted a review encompassing eight studies from different countries from the first five months of the pandemic. Thirunavukkarasu and colleagues found a combined 492 cases of newly diagnosed diabetes among 3,711 hospitalised Covid-19 patients, or a pooled proportion of 14.4%.


These figures include both Covid-19 patients who were diagnosed with diabetes for the first time, as well as people who previously had diabetes – but didn’t know they had the disease, he explained.It’s hard to ignore the dramatic symptoms of type 1 diabetes, where the body does not make any insulin. But in the case of type 2 diabetes – in which the body is unable to make enough insulin or the insulin doesn’t work properly – symptoms are easy to miss because they appear gradually.

In 2019, it was 50-60mins each way, so it's still great.

Once or twice a month I go down to Providence on Friday afternoon around 4PM and head back. That drive has been great for all of 2020 and pretty consistent in terms of time, but the last couple trips I have noticed it's been taking an extra 10-15mins each way now.

Don't get me wrong, traffic is still great, but my dreams of being able to relocate further away are slowly getting dashed as commute times start to creep up a bit.
The backup at 128 South and Rt.3/Middlesex Tpk in Burlington is back to normal. Around 3 PM, the backup to take the ramp is back to Rt. 3A.

I heard that 93 south of Boston is also creeping back to the commuting disaster that it was.

Interesting that it is both - given that T1 is an autoimmune disease that destroys b cells in the pancreas.

Im surprised to hear traffic is bad again ? Many are still remote. Well it's going to get a lot worse then as more people go back the next few months.

Oh it is. I got complacent with the lower traffic and about a month ago thought I'd get clever one afternoon and take a shortcut to South Bay by hopping on the 93S onramp/frontage at Albany and taking it to South Bay (instead of going down Mass Ave), and ended up adding 15 minutes to my trip.

Ha - I used to do the same thing when I lived in the S End, and got caught in traffic a few times - sweet when it works though.

I don't know how anyone deals with 93S rush hour traffic on a daily basis.

In Boston at least, it's not just workers on the road. The restaurant crowds have started coming back and Friday/Saturdays in particular there's a lot of car/foot traffic around hotspots. Many of those remote workers are still coming in to go to favorite dining spots, take their kid to the playground/museum/aquarium, or just to walk around.
