COVID-19: this symptom would be typical of those vaccinated | Digital Trends Spanish

Health experts around the world have repeatedly explained that while COVID-19 vaccines help control the pandemic, none of them provide 100 percent protection against the virus. For this reason, those who have received the doses of the respective vaccines can be infected and, according to scientists, there is a simple way to check if someone inoculated has been infected. A new investigation carried out by the company ZOE and King's College London, and which involved 4 million people in the world, affirms that sneezing more than usual could indicate the presence of the disease in the case of those who have already been vaccinated. The main symptoms such as loss of smell, cough, fever, headache and fatigue remain important, but the study authors say that sneezing a lot is "a more common si...

MIT Designs Mask That Inactivates Coronavirus With Heat | Digital Trends Spanish

The use of masks has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to avoid coronavirus infections. Aware of this, a group of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has designed a mask that inactivates the virus using heat. The researchers hope to develop this mask incorporating a heated copper mesh that runs on a battery and is surrounded by insulating neoprene. Thus, as the person wearing the mask breathes, the air flows through this mesh and the viral particles in the air are slowed down and inactivated due to this device and the high temperatures. MIT. This mask is expected to be of great use to healthcare professionals or the general public, especially when social distance cannot be respected. “This is a completely new mask concept in that it does ...

Antibody component effective against SARS-CoV-2 | Digital Trends Spanish

The efforts of the scientific community continue to try to stop the advance of the coronavirus around the world. We have already known of great advances in this matter and everything indicates that the hopeful news does not stop. Experts from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine reported that they have managed to isolate the smallest biological molecule so far, which could completely neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is an antibody component, which is ten times smaller than a full-size antibody, according to EurekAlert. The antibody has been used to make a drug, which is known as Ab8, for eventual therapeutic use against SARS-CoV-2. According to what is stated by the researchers in the scientific journal Cell, Ab8 is highly effective in the prevention and...
