'Seven different forms of mild COVID-19 identified'

November 03, 2020 4:06 pm

In a research published in the journal Allergy, scientists identified seven groups of symptoms including "flu-like symptoms" with fever, chills, fatigue and cough, "common cold-like symptoms" with rhinitis, sneezing, dry throat and nasal congestion, and "joint and muscle pain".

Dining out, going to pubs linked to contracting coronavirus: US study

September 12, 2020 5:08 pm

According to the research, adults who tested positive for the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 were nearly twice as likely to have reported dining at a restaurant than those with negative test results.

Antiviral drug used to treat cats also works against novel coronavirus, say scientists

August 28, 2020 5:04 pm

The scientists noted that the drug interferes with the virus' ability to replicate, and may help end infection. They said the drug is an inhibitor of some of the body's protease molecules.

COVID-19: Scientists decode how severe viral infection causes immune system 'exhaustion'

August 25, 2020 4:16 pm

The study noted that severe viral infections cause impairments to some components of the immune system such as the T cells in a process called immune 'exhaustion'.

Nasal vaccine prevents coronavirus infection in mice, says study

August 22, 2020 5:09 pm

According to the researchers, the nasal delivery route created a strong immune response throughout the body, but it was particularly effective in the nose and respiratory tract, preventing the infection from taking hold in the body.

Scientists decode how severe COVID-19 patients develop low blood oxygen levels

August 21, 2020 5:13 pm

The pilot study of 18 patients helps explain how COVID-19 behaves differently than classic acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in which lung inflammation leads to leaky blood vessels in the organ.

Scientists decode immune system changes in children with rare COVID-19 related syndrome

August 19, 2020 4:26 pm

According to the researchers, the rare disease, referred to as paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS-TS), has emerged in a small number of children during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Scientists identify potential drug candidate against Covid-19

August 15, 2020 7:14 pm

Scientists found that the pharmaceutical drug that shows promise as a weapon against Mpro, a key enzyme in the virus is Ebselen, which is used to treat multiple diseases, including bipolar disorders and hearing loss.

Scientists identify cellular structure that may play critical role in coronavirus replication

August 08, 2020 6:18 pm

According to the researchers, this structure may be a generic complex with a pivotal role in the coronavirus replication cycle, facilitating the export of newly synthesised viral RNA from the DMVs to the cytosol.

US scientists find possible Covid-19 treatment

August 04, 2020 6:46 pm

Coronavirus 3C-like proteases, known as 3CLpro, are strong therapeutic targets because they play vital roles in coronavirus replication, the researchers said.
