Association of clinical and radiographic findings with the outcomes of 93 patients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China
Conclusions: Chest CT scores correlate well with risk factors for mortality over periods, thus they may be used as a prognostic indicator in COVID-19. While higher chest CT scores are associated with a higher mortality rate, CT images taken at least 6 days since symptom onset may contain more prognostic information than images taken at an earlier period.
Covid testing and contact tracing are the keys fro safely reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic, new research suggests.
The British government has procured "millions" of two separate coronavirus tests that can detect not only coronavirus but several other viruses common in autumn, winter and spring, the UK's Department of Health said Monday.
Tuberculosis kills 1.5 million people each year. Lockdowns and supply-chain disruptions threaten progress against the disease as well as H.I.V. and malaria.
Questions regarding the transmissibility of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) remain unanswered. It is known that the transmission of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) occurs predominantly through droplets and contact. However, aerosols can be generated in some situations, such as orotracheal intubation, ventilation, and the use of electric or ultrasonic scalpels, and can therefore potentially contaminate the care team if adequate protection is not used. It is therefore necessary to assess issues of transmissibility of COVID-19 during surgery in infected patients. This review gathers the r...
Scientists say the UK test-and-trace scheme is not yet good enough to stop a resurgence of coronavirus.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has written to the PM to voice 'great surprise' at suggestions the capital could be effectively sealed off if there is a spike in coronavirus infections.
White House staff will be randomly tested for the virus. Some U.S. schools begin to reopen with fraught results.
We present the unique opportunity we had to monitor the liver, IL-6 and immune cell course before, during and after COVID-19 in a boy with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and type 1 diabetes (T1D). CD4+ and CD8+ T cells frequencies decreased because of prednisolone, followed by a plateauing increase whereas CD19+CD20+ B cell increased strongly and was unaffected by COVID-19 infection. Moreover, the percentage of activated CD8+ T cells expressing HLA-DR (CD8+HLA-DR+) increased during COVID-19 and subsided after its clearance. Total regulatory T cells (Tregs: CD4+CD25+CD127lowFOXP3+) remained stable. Although activated Tregs (CD4...
