In Cases Of Vaccine Failure, CDC To Focus On Those Who Get Hospitalized Or Die

The CDC has decided that the focus of investigations of cases in which COVID-19 vaccines fail will be on people who get hospitalized or die — but critics say that's short-sighted.

Face masks effectively limit the probability of SARS-CoV-2 transmission | Science

Face masks effectively limit the probability of SARS-CoV-2 transmission | Science | Coronavirus - COVID-19: a systemic view | Scoop.it

Airborne transmission by droplets and aerosols is important for the spread of viruses. Face masks are a well-established preventive measure, but their effectiveness for mitigating severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) transmission is still under debate. We show that variations in mask efficacy can be explained by different regimes of virus abundance and are related to population-average infection probability and reproduction number. For SARS-CoV-2, the viral load of infectious individuals can vary by orders of magnitude. We find that most environments and contacts are under conditions of low virus abundance (virus-limited), where surgical masks are effective at preventing virus spread. More-advanced masks and other protective equipment are required in potentially virus-rich indoor environments, including medical centers and hospitals. Masks are particularly effective in combination with other preventive measures like ventilation and distancing.

Hybrid immunity | Science | Coronavirus - COVID-19: a systemic view | Scoop.it

Immunity to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection is a vital issue for global society. Determining the quality and duration of that immunity is therefore key. But the adaptive immune system is complex, and these factors may differ between natural immunity (obtained by infection) and vaccine-generated immunity

Wearable materials with embedded synthetic biology sensors for biomolecule detection

Wearable materials with embedded synthetic biology sensors for biomolecule detection | Coronavirus - COVID-19: a systemic view | Scoop.it
Integrating synthetic biology into wearables could expand opportunities for noninvasive monitoring of physiological status, disease states and exposure to pathogens or toxins. However, the operation of synthetic circuits generally requires the presence of living, engineered bacteria, which has limited their application in wearables. Here we report lightweight, flexible substrates and textiles functionalized with freeze-dried, cell-free synthetic circuits, including CRISPR-based tools, that detect metabolites, chemicals and pathogen nucleic acid signatures. The wearable devices are activated upon rehydration from aqueous exposure events and report the presence of specific molecular targets by colorimetric changes or via an optical fiber network that detects fluorescent and luminescent outputs. The detection limits for nucleic acids rival current laboratory methods such as quantitative PCR. We demonstrate the development of a face mask with a lyophilized CRISPR sensor for wearable, noninvasive detection of SARS-CoV-2 at room temperature within 90 min, requiring no user intervention other than the press of a button. Wearable materials are endowed with synthetic biology circuits to detect biomolecules, including SARS-CoV-2 RNA.

Lebenslange Immunität nach Corona Infektion durch Plasmazellen, B-Zellen und Antikörper -

Lebenslange Immunität nach Corona Infektion durch Plasmazellen, B-Zellen und Antikörper - | Coronavirus - COVID-19: a systemic view | Scoop.it

Nach den ersten Untersuchungen von Rekonvaleszenten nach einer Covid Erkrankung und von Menschen, die eine Corona Infektion ohne Erkrankung durchgemacht haben, kam die Befürchtung auf, dass die Immunität nicht lange anhält, weil Antikörper relativ rasch verschwinden oder nur sehr wenige vorhanden sind. Genauere Untersuchungen zeigen nun, dass dem nicht so ist, sondern Immunität nach Infektion lebenslang anhält. Das zeigt ein Artikel in Nature, der die wichtigsten neuen Studien zusammenfasst.
