Covid-19

A team of researchers led by Duke University Medical Center revealed that the failure of some patients to recover their sense of smell following COVID-19 is connected with a persistent immunological attack on olfactory nerve cells...
People who received two or three doses of the mRNA vaccine are more likely to have a milder illness if infected with the Delta or Omicorn variants than those who were unvaccinated.

COVID-19 Survivors Face Increased Risk of Death, Illness

COVID-19 survivors experience a strain of health loss that extends from lung to other vital organs increasing the risk of death beyond the 30 days of illness.

Vaccine Hesitancy: What Is Behind the Stance?

Vaccine hesitancy is not only related to personal experience but also connected with a generalized negative stance towards vaccines, a new opinion poll finds.

Blood Clotting in Covid-19 Linked to Abnormal Antibody Response

It is possible that the antibodies used to fight the disease activate unusual platelet activity in the lungs, causing the inflammation and blood clotting seen in more severe cases of Covid-19.

Delta Variant: Antibodies Do Not Match

According to a recent study, those who have previously contracted SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are more likely to contract the Delta version again.

SARS-CoV-2 Find Other Route to Infect Cells

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has the ability to enter cells through an alternative route other than ACE2.

Mild COVID-19 Induces Lasting Antibody Protection

Months after recovering from mild COVID-19 infection, people still have immune cells in their body generating antibodies against the virus that causes COVID-19

Vitamin D May Not Provide Protection from COVID-19 Severity

Though observational studies showed increased vitamin D levels may protect against COVID-19, genetic evidence does not support the idea, a new study published in PLOS Medicine reports.

Scientists Reveal How SARS-CoV-2 Variants Escape the Immune Response

Fast-spreading variants of the COVID-19-causing coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, carry mutations that enable the virus to escape some of the immune response created naturally or by vaccination.

Mild COVID-19 Unlikely to Cause Lasting Heart Injury

Mild Covid-19 infection is very unlikely to cause lasting damage to the structure or function of the heart, according to a study led by UCL researchers.

A Higher COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage by Summer Can Prevent Millions of Cases

Lives, hospitalizations, and costs can be saved by relatively small increases in COVID-19 vaccination coverage, reaching a higher vaccine coverage levels by summer.

The Novel Coronavirus’ Spike Protein Plays Additional Key Role in Illness

Coronavirus' spike proteins help the virus infect its host cell. Now a new study, found that the proteins also play a key role in the disease itself.

Coronavirus Does Not Infect the Brain but still Inflicts Damage

Coronavirus that causes COVID-19, likely does not infect the brain but can still inflict significant neurological damage, according to a new study.
