When the COVID-19 coronavirus hit American shores, there were testing issues and little was known about asymptomatic and alternatively symptomatic people. Now, Penn State University epidemiologists believe these factors led to an infection rate 80 times higher than originally estimated.
Since COVID-19 coronavirus began infecting the world, people have been waiting for a vaccine or other preventative treatment. Despite breathless reporting from the media, neither is coming soon. However, it turns out you might not need either. You may well already be resistant to SARS-CoV-2.
Doctors and public health officials have had plenty to worry about during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Spread rates, mortality rates and who was really at-risk top the list. Also on that list was this: how likely are pregnant mothers to pass the virus along to their unborn children?
Is it possible to have COVID-19 coronavirus and not even know it? Yes. Of greater concern to scientists is what may be happening to those asymptomatic carriers and how many people they may be unwittingly infecting. The numbers may be higher than we previously imagined, according to a new study.

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.
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.
