Long-term SARS-CoV-2 shedding was observed from the upper respiratory tract of a female immunocompromised patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and acquired hypogammaglobulinemia.
NASA partners with health stakeholders to study how particulate matter air pollution affects our health
A new NASA satellite mission currently in development promises to take research into the connections between PM air pollution and human health to new heights.
Human damage to biodiversity is leading us into a pandemic era. The virus that causes COVID-19, for example, is linked to similar viruses in bats, which may have been passed to humans via pangolins or another species.
Researchers at the US National Institutes of Health have found out that the coronavirus deactivates the cells’ disease-fighting machinery that destroys viruses and other pathogens before they leave the cells, allowing it to freely spread throughout the body.
A modeling study looking at more than 32,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in Wuhan, China, offers fresh insights into features of the virus, including ease of transmission, effectiveness of nonpharmaceutical interventions such as social distancing and face masks, and the impact that undetected cases have on the spread of the disease.
An investigational vaccine, mRNA-1273, designed to protect against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), was generally well tolerated and prompted neutralizing antibody activity in healthy adults, according to interim results published online today in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, is a respiratory illness that can bring mild to severe symptoms.
