COVID-19 Pandemic Responsible for Decrease in Hepatitis C Testing

New research finds that the COVID-19 emergency systemic changes made to decrease in-person visits during the pandemic have led to a decrease in hospital-wide Hepatitis C (HCV) testing by 50 percent, ...

New Review Confirms Disproportionate Impact of COVID-19 on Black, Hispanic Populations

Black and Hispanic populations are disproportionately affected by COVID-19, according to a systematic review published this week. The disparities were likely related to minority populations being at ...

Marine Mammals' Adaptations to Low Oxygen Offer New Perspective on COVID-19

Humans are vulnerable to rapid damage in a wide range of tissues when oxygen levels drop due to the effects on the lungs and cardiovascular system of infection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. A new ...

Outbreak Investigation Reveals 'Super-Spreader' Potential of Andes Virus

'Super-spreader' events and extensive person-to-person contact propelled an outbreak of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in a small village in Argentina from 2018-2019, according to new ...

3D Protein Modeling Suggests Why COVID-19 Infects Some Animals, but Not Others

Some animals are more susceptible to COVID-19 infection than others, and new research suggests this may be due to distinctive structural features of a protein found on the surface of animal ...

Oral Drug Blocks SARS-CoV-2 Transmission, Researchers Find

Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection with a new antiviral drug, MK-4482/EIDD-2801 or Molnupiravir, completely suppresses virus transmission within 24 hours, researchers have ...
