Medicine & TechnologyResearchers found three viruses that share a key feature with SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that caused COVID-19, in greater horseshoe bats living in limestone caves in Laos. Scientists are hopeful that they are now closer to finding the cause of the current pandemic.
Apprehensions that COVID-19 infection could be spread through the surface have led to a stigma around the management and handling of trash, specifically including personal protective equipment or PPEs, gloves, and masks.
The Delta variant of COVID-19 has been spread all over the United States, giving everyone reasons for finding the best approach, including taking vitamins, to prevent the highly-transmitted strain of the virus from progressing.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota developed a novel virus-like nanoparticle vaccine that has been tested on animals, offering a new approach in a human vaccine against COVID-19 and its variants.
New research has just proven the efficacy of face masks as a protection against COVID-19. However, according to the researchers, the surgical mask is guaranteed effective while the cloth-made falls short.
Scientists have recently studied the use of face masks, as well as the efficacy of those that are made with nanofibers. They found that masks made with the material need further improvement for better efficacy.
