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
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?
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.
The Chinese government claimed that the Wuhan coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, originated in bats sold at Wuhan’s “wet market.” The World Health Organization obediently parroted that claim. According to new genomic analysis, both were wrong.
COVID-19 coronavirus has hit the world hard, with medical and public health authorities working hard to slow the spread, beat the disease and save lives. Northern Italy has been hit particularly hard, with thousands of deaths. Could pollution have played a part in Northern Italy’s suffering?
We know that people with certain comorbidities like diabetes, cancer and heart disease, as well as older people, are at higher risk of dying from COVID-19. It wasn’t believed, however, that those with COVID-19 might also have other respiratory illnesses like influenza, rhinovirus or adenovirus. New research indicates differently.
Scientists have been furiously researching COVID-19 coronavirus since it first showed up in Wuhan, China in late 2019. How it’s transmitted has been a key area of that research. Now, a new study says transmission may be as simple as breathing.
To stop the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus, a majority of people around the world have been told to stay at home. Even without your gym or health club, you can still take advantage of a huge immune system booster. Regular exercise helps boost your immunity and keep you healthy.
We’re learning more about the COVID-19 coronavirus every day. What one research team recently discovered is that the virus sticks around even after the symptoms have abated. Worse yet, those patients may still be contagious.
