But an interesting definition to put into a dictionary.
Some kind of herd immunity among younger people has developed?
"The show, which saw Spanish rock band Love of Lesbian playing..."
Im not 100% sure but i think.i read that all of the people who attended the gig were tested negative for covid before they were allowed in, so its understandable that there were few cases reported afterwards.Some kind of herd immunity among younger people has developed?
Wouldn’t that make it a non-headline, then?Im not 100% sure but i think.i read that all of the people who attended the gig were tested negative for covid before they were allowed in, so its understandable that there were few cases reported afterwards.
Not likely. UK's biggest outbreak is a few miles from my house. People are saying locally it's almost entirely people who work in this warehouse, who have got covid, (or presumably, their families, despite what it says here) and:Some kind of herd immunity among younger people has developed?
Think they've been saying that here in the UK for over a year, now.The University of California and Salk Institute claims covid is not a respiratory disease but a vascular disease.
Covid destroys the endothelial cells and mitochondria.
This is why the symptoms are so varied.
FULL STORY:High Dose of Vitamin D Fails to Improve Condition of Moderate to Severe COVID-19 Patients
A clinical trial was conducted with 240 patients who were given 200,000 IU of vitamin D3 on admission to hospital. The supplementation did not reduce length of stay or affect the proportion requiring intensive care.
Can a high dose of vitamin D administered on admission to the hospital improve the condition of patients with moderate or severe COVID-19? The answer is no, according to a Brazilian study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
The article reports a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, the kind of study considered the gold standard to evaluate drug efficacy. It was conducted with FAPESP’s support by researchers at the University of São Paulo’s Medical School (FM-USP), who recruited 240 patients treated at Hospital das Clínicas (HC), the hospital complex run by FM-USP, and the Ibirapuera field hospital in São Paulo City in June-August 2020. ...
The main purpose was to see if acute supplementation would affect the length of hospital stay for these patients, but the researchers also wanted to find out whether it would mitigate the risks of admission to the intensive care unit (ICU), intubation and death.
No significant difference between the groups was observed for any of these clinical outcomes. ...
FULL STORY: https://www.sciencealert.com/young-...9-show-lasting-cardiovascular-damage-in-studyYoung Adults Who've Had COVID-19 Show Signs of Lasting Cardiovascular Damage
... Young adults who show only minor symptoms of COVID-19 may still suffer lingering changes to their blood vessels, according to a small new study.
While the SARS-CoV-2 primarily impacts the lungs and is particularly dangerous for older people, growing research suggests it also leaves a lasting mark on the cardiovascular system, even among young people and those who experience only mild symptoms.
In the most recent study, scientists compared the vascular health of 30 young adults, half of whom had tested positive for COVID-19 about a month before and half of whom were in good health.
Analyzing ultrasound recordings of their pumping arteries, the team found a significant difference between both groups.
Even though no one had been hospitalized, the arteries of those who contracted COVID-19 three to four weeks ago were stiffer and less elastic than the healthy group.
The carotid artery, which carries blood to the brain, was 27 percent less able to swell and 22 percent less elastic on average. The aortic artery, which carries blood to the heart, was also affected.
It's unclear how these blood vessels looked before the participants contracted COVID-19, which is a limitation, but given that researchers couldn't have predicted the start of a global pandemic, they substituted those comparisons with data from healthy individuals.
The sample size is small, but the initial findings reinforce the idea that COVID-19 is not something to be trifled with. Even if you're young and healthy, and even if you barely got sick from the virus, the impact to your cardiovascular health could last long after your symptoms fade. ...
