The novel human Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which outbroke in Wuhan (China) in late 2019, is now responsible for the pandemic diffusion of COVID-19 [1 –3]. Researchers are working on the validation of effective protocols, including antiviral therapies and vaccines [4]. Case-fatality rate seems correlated with virally-driven hyperinflammation [4,5]. In this sense, recent data suggest a crucial role for cytokines release syndrome (CRS) and human i nterleukin-6 (IL-6) levels as fatality predictors [4,5].

By LOGAN CHO The COVID-19 pandemic has been harsher and lasted longer than many of us would have predicted. While our media has been inundated with updates on death tolls and economic depression, there has been little conversation of healthcare beyond the era of COVID-19. The first question that we ask when we hear of deaths: was it COVID? We have grown to expect the primary cause of death to be of coronavirus. But the impact of COVID-19 will extend beyond the individual, effecting fundamental and long-lasting change to our healthcare system. By this point, it is clear that the public health ramifications are rea...

BOSTON (CBS) — Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have designed a silicone mask that is as effective as an N95 mask, but easier to sterilize so it can be used multiple times. “We recognize that not everybody has the sophisticated sterilization equipment but we also recognize that many folks around the world would have access to some kind of an oven or perhaps a solution of chlorine,” said Giovanni Traverso, an MIT assistant professor and gastroenterologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many hospitals began...

We describe these psychological threats, provide clinical context for them, and offer practical suggestions for managing them, for the benefit of patients, their caregivers, and clinicians. Our hope is that, by sharing our clinical experience, we can help other oncologists increase their awareness of the psychological impact of the pandemic on cancer patients and implement solutions. Managing these challenges now should translate into improved standards of care when this infective storm is over. Paradoxically, COVID-19 could be an opportunity to learn how to better manage cancer care.
