We are all looking forward to knowing what is happening every minute, given the tremendous development that “Covid-19” has brought into our lives.
“Masrawy” provides a daily service to display everything you want to know about the developments of the emerging corona virus, from the emergence of new symptoms or the occurrence of a different mutation, as well as the development of vaccines and medicines in brief.
Shocking discovery about the virus
While the origins of the Corona pandemic are still unknown today despite the fact that it has been nearly two years since its appearance, many scientists are now openly debating whether the virus was really leaked from the Wuhan laboratory.
However, a new study may exonerate that place that has always been the subject of accusation over the past months, as Dr. Jonathan Latham, who is the executive director of the Biological Science Resources Project in the United States, suggested that Corona may have evolved in the body of an infected Chinese miner nearly a decade ago. The epidemic, and when samples of the baffling factor disease at the time were sent to virus researchers in Wuhan for study, the disease infiltrated the population, according to Sky News.
“Virus starvation” .. Scientists discover a solution to combat Covid 19
A Swedish research team has come up with a new strategy that can be used to combat Covid 19, based on “virus starvation”, after they succeeded in identifying the main metabolic pathways that can regulate its reproduction, according to the results of a study published, Friday, in the journal “Molecular and Cellular Proteins”.
While the virus spreads, by hijacking the metabolic pathways of the host cell, which gives it a greater ability to reproduce, and by using blood samples from 41 patients with the disease, and analyzing them using different techniques, including plasma metabolism, the research team from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden identified the role of the virus. The main metabolic pathways through which the virus enters the lung tissue, according to Al Arabiya.
Cloth masks remain effective for up to a year after repeated washing
An American study confirmed that reusable cloth masks remain effective after being washed and dried for a year in filtering airborne particles, including viral particles.
The study was conducted at the University of “Colorado Boulder” and published in the journal Aerosol and Air Quality Research, where the research confirmed that placing a cotton mask over the surgical mask, since it fits perfectly with the face, provides greater protection than that made of cloth only, in this study, according to For a report by The Health Site, according to Al Arabiya.
