Join me on the Four Pillar Fitness podcast for this episode highlighting some important things to know about COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic.
Most research into COVID-19 coronavirus is focused on what it is and how to stop it. Virtually all of that research was on live subjects. Now, a team at The Mount Sinai Hospital is looking at the dead to help them better understand COVID-19’s broad impact on the human body.
During the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, there has been some controversy around the wearing of masks or face coverings. We were alternately told to wear them and not wear them. But does wearing a face covering reduce transmission of the virus? A new study seeks to answer that question.
Polls of Americans show that many don’t trust the reporting of the number of COVID-19 deaths in the US. Stories continue to appear about suicides and murders being reported as COVID deaths. Now, it appears that news out of Colorado may back up those suspicious of inaccurate death counts.
Media reports about COVID-19 coronavirus would lead you to believe that after 6 months, we know nothing about it and are doomed. But that’s not the case. We know quite a bit about this virus, how it behaves and how to treat it, and we learn more every day.
COVID-19 coronavirus infections and deaths worldwide have left serious and lasting damage in their wake. But one aspect of that damage may far outlast the pandemic. Millions around the globe are suffering debilitating psychological disorders that may last for many years to come.
By now you’ve been bombarded with news headlines about the “grave danger” to children posed by COVID-19 coronavirus. Reports of “unusual” illnesses related to the virus are swirling, too. But what is the real risk that your children might be killed or left damaged by COVID-19?
Rumors abound about how long COVID-19 coronavirus can survive on various surfaces. One media story said the virus survives for 3 to 4 days on your kitchen counter. Thankfully, real science has provided real evidence. It’s also told us something about your smartphone you may not want to hear.
While the argument rages on about when and how to reopen the American economy, many experts think one statistic may be more important than the case count or number of deaths. The number of recovered COVID-19 patients may be key to safely reopening society, according to a new scientific model.
COVID-19 coronavirus has had a brutal impact on much of the world. But in two southeast Asian zoos, one group of residents is taking it all in stride. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say, waddling around like they own the place!
