Covid airborne particles can infect over 200 feet: Study
IANS -
Small coronavirus respiratory particles can remain moist and airborne for a longer time and at greater distance than scientists have thought so far. Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory estimates that droplets encased in mucus could remain moist for up to 30 minutes and travel up to about 200 feet. The findings were published in the journal International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer.

The study also revealed that the risk of prolonged hospitalisation of Covid-19 patients can be reduced with the help of the drug. It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that is currently used to treat mental health conditions like depression and obsessive-compulsive disorders. The low-cost drug was chosen for the study by researchers as a potential treatment for Covid-19 due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

White-nose syndrome can decimate little brown bats: Studies
IANS -
White-nose syndrome has already killed more than 90 per cent of some hibernating bat species east of the Mississippi. The disease is the result of a fungus that grows on a bat and damages tissues during hibernation. The fungus grows well in near-freezing and humid environments that bats use for hibernation, with the name 'white-nose' describing the appearance of fungal growth on infected bats.

Covid vascular disease, not respiratory, says study
IANS -
The study, led by the University of California-San Diego, could explain blood clots in some Covid patients and other issues like "Covid feet", which are not typical symptoms of a respiratory illness, Euronews reported. The findings, published in the journal Circulation Research, showed how the virus attacks the vascular or circulatory system. For the study, the team created a pseudovirus for the study.
