Doctors warned of a change in the symptoms of COVID-19

British scientists from King’s College have warned of changes in the symptoms of COVID-19. Scientists warn that due to the mutations that have appeared, the coronavirus is now difficult to distinguish from the common cold. The National Health Service of Great Britain left in the list of the main signs...

New COVID-19 sensor can smell virus in crowded room: researchers

A new device can sniff out if someone in a crowded room has COVID-19, British researchers say. The highly accurate ceiling-mounted sensor takes as few as 15 minutes to raise a coronavirus alarm, says development firm RoboScientific. The room monitor, a little larger than a smoke detector, notices changes in...

The Battle Over the Coronavirus Lab-Leak Theory

A standard device in detective stories is a map on which certain buildings are circled. Their locations are thought to be revealing, though often they just create a false trail. When four of the first cases of a strange, pneumonia-like illness seen in Wuhan, China, in December, 2019, were found to have a connection to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, it seemed a key to solving the mystery of the illness’s origin. Live animals were reportedly on sale there, offering a route for pathogens to jump from wild species to humans. But then other cases, some of them earlier, were identified, with no known connection to the market. In due course, more sites were circled on the pandemic map. One was the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which contains a Biosafety Level 4 lab. The institute’s work included experiments on the bat coronaviruses that are among the closest known relatives to SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.

New coronavirus found in bats in China, scientists deeply worried

In a shocking revelation, Chinese researchers claim to have found a batch of new coronaviruses in bats. They even say that the newly found viruses in the bats include one that may be the second-closest yet (genetically) to the COVID-19 virus, reports CNN. According to the researchers, their discoveries in...

Fully vaccinated less likely to pass COVID-19 to others

One question many people who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 have is whether they can transmit the virus to someone who isn’t vaccinated. For this to happen, it would mean the fully vaccinated person was asymptomatic. That term means being infected with the virus without ever knowing it. While the...

New Cell Atlas of COVID-19 Pathology Reveals How the Coronavirus “Wreaks Havoc in the Lungs”

Single-cell analysis of autopsy samples from COVID-19 patients shows how the lungs repeatedly tried, and failed, to repair themselves. Scientists from several hospitals and research centers have shown what happens in individual cells of patients who died of COVID-19. In a study published in Nature, the researchers describe how infected cells from multiple organs exhibited a range of molecular and genomic changes. They also saw signs of multiple, unsuccessful attempts by the lungs to repair themselves in response to respiratory failure, which is the leading cause of death in COVID-19 patients.

Researchers have assessed the risk of transmitting coronavirus through surfaces

Scientists have discovered a type of microbe that may be linked to a severe form of COVID-19. A new study shows that the coronavirus can survive on surfaces near sick patients, but is unlikely to infect anyone through these surfaces. The findings add to previous research showing that the coronavirus typically spreads through the air, rather than through touch. The researchers also found a new link between the coronavirus and a type of microbe that may be associated with a severe form of COVID.
