Your mom had an awful lot of wisdom about how to strengthen your body to fight pathogens like COVID-19 coronavirus. Did she know she was preparing you for a pandemic when she admonished you to eat your vegetables and take your vitamins? Maybe. Hope you were listening.
We’ve heard a lot about how COVID-19 coronavirus is transmitted and how it effects the body. We were introduced to medical terms like cytokine storm, hydroxychloroquine and viral shedding. But how does the virus do its work? How does it beat our defenses and attack respiratory tissue
People are terrified that COVID-19 coronavirus is lurking on every surface they touch. As a result, they’re pouring gallons of hand sanitizer on themselves and using often toxic cleaning and sanitizing products on every surface around them. The result? Poison reports are spiking.
As America and the world shelter at home and maintain physical distancing to try and beat COVID-19 coronavirus, some are wondering if the cure is worse than the disease. While that’s debatable, one thing isn’t. Social distancing is creating mental health issues that experts failed to foresee.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus are well-established. They include fever, dry cough and difficulty breathing. But they’re not the only symptoms. In many COVID-19 cases, full onset of the illness is preceded by loss of chemosensory functions, smell and taste.
A number of drugs have been held up as promising treatments for COVID-19 coronavirus. A few have already been put into use. The most well-known of these is Hydroxychloroquine. However, another drug, Remdesivir, is also showing strong results in clinical trials. Could this be the answer for treating COVID-19?
Hydroxychloroquine is under clinical testing in multiple labs. But even without clinical proof of effectiveness, its use to treat COVID-19 is increasing. But according to one poll, plasma from recovered patients may be seen as more effective.
COVID-19 coronavirus seems like a horrible monster. But it is still a virus, even if it seems scary and horrible. The good news is that the human immune system is built to deal with viruses. Especially if you keep it strong and give it the weapons it needs. Here’s how.
COVID-19 coronavirus has reached virtually every corner of the globe. Every nation in the world has at least one reported case. What happens, then, if you have to travel during this pandemic? Is there any way to be safe about it? Maybe, says the Mayo Clinic.
Doctors, nurses and medical professionals all over the world are working long hours diagnosing and treating COVID-19 coronavirus patients. Their choices are being made based on rapidly developing scientific evidence. Could that evidence essentially be “bad intel?”
