They propose to extend teleworking to reduce pollution | Digital Trends Spanish

There is also another positive aspect, since remote work would reduce the emission of polluting gases into the atmosphere. An investigation carried out by the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona, ​​determined that implementing teleworking two, three or four days a week could reduce nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels by 4; 8 and 10 percent, respectively. The study analyzes the data obtained from an air quality model, together with the measurements taken in the metropolitan area of ​​Barcelona, ​​during the period of confinement by COVID-19.

Aspirin to get COVID-19 patients back? | Digital Trends Spanish

Several studies have shown that almost 80% of patients who die due to COVID-19 have thrombosis or blood clotting in the lungs. A group of researchers believe that blood thinners, such as aspirin, could help prevent this critical clotting that can lead to the death of a person. For this reason, they will begin to give aspirin to patients infected with coronavirus who are recovering in a British hospital, as part of a trial that seeks to determine if this drug can prevent deadly blood clotting in the lungs. If its effectiveness can be proven, it would be the first over-the-counter drug that has actually been shown to have an impact on the coronavirus. "Aspirin is a very available and inexpensive drug, and if it worked, it would be a huge boost for treatment," says Oxford University p...

Gold mine wastewater to combat COVID-19 | Digital Trends Spanish

They may not look good or look good, but analysis of the wastewater could provide researchers with important information about COVID-19. They can be, for example, a premature indicator of the existence of an outbreak of the disease, as well as provide information on the effectiveness of the adoption of quarantine by a population. "Wastewater is really a gold mine for information," says Jordan Peccia, a Yale professor of chemical and environmental engineering. If researchers can identify traces of COVID-19 in sewage sludge, they may be able to identify outbreaks and better understand how the virus spreads. For scientists, the concentration of COVID-19 RNA per milliliter of sewage sludge can indicate the presence or absence of the disease, as well as the way in which it spreads, eith...

High-dose vitamin D supplements would be unnecessary | Digital Trends Spanish

People get vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. We can also nourish ourselves with it through some foods, this constitutes only a small portion of the supply we need. For the same reason, many people seek to increase their intake of this vitamin through supplements, especially in a period where we have not been able to spend so much time outside exposed to sunlight due to sanitary restrictions. However, an article published on the site EurekAlert by the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), explains that the consumption of these food supplements in high doses is unnecessary. In fact, such an overdose could lead to high levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia). In humans, this is associated with fatigue, muscle weakness, constipation, vomiting, and can even cause card...
