White House task force warns of new USA variant of Covid-19

The White House coronavirus task force in its latest report said that the United States may have its own version of a more transmissible variant of Covid-19 that might be helping fuel the already aggressive spread of the virus. Reports sent by the task force to states dated to January 3 warned of the possibility of a USA variant of Covid-19, CNN reported. "This fall/winter surge has been at nearly twice the rate of rise of cases as the spring and summer surges. This acceleration suggests there may be a USA variant that has evolved here, in addition to the UK variant that is already spreading in our communities and maybe 50 per cent more transmissible," reports obtained by CNN said. .... read more

The Seven Dhatus in Ayurveda

As per Ayurveda physiology, food is Brahman and contains the same consciousness as in us and this consciousness is the essence of any food. Any food digested is converted into three portions - the gross undigested food is converted into waste (feces), the middle part is converted into one of the Dhatus and the subtlest form gets converted into ojha or the immunity. As per Ayurveda, food once eaten is converted into the first Dhatu, i.e., Rasa. Once the formation of Rasa is complete, the remaining is converted into Rakta (blood). The left over essence of food makes Mamsa (muscles), left over of which makes Medha (adipose tissue), and so on to form Asthi (Bone), Majja (Bone Marrow) and Shukra (sperm/ova). .... read more

Serum’s vaccine despatch delayed another 48 hours

Pune: The massive airlift of the Covishield vaccine doses from here has been delayed by another 48 hours. It is now likely to happen only by Monday. Vaccine manufacturer Serum Institute of India has dismissed talk of the transportation delay being due to “price negotiations” with the Union government. Transportation was first expected to begin on Thursday, and then Friday.

DGCA issues guidelines to airlines for transportation of COVID-19 vaccines in dry ice packaging

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued guidelines to all aircraft operators who plan to transport COVID-19 vaccines packed in dry ice to various parts of the country, outlining the necessary safety precautions and modalities. If vaccines packed in dry ice are being transported in the passenger cabin of an aircraft, then the flight crew should be properly trained on the hazards and risks of its transportation, it noted. Dry ice transforms into carbon dioxide gas at temperatures higher than minus 78 degrees Celsius under normal atmospheric pressure and, therefore, it is classified as “dangerous goods” by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), it said.

Covid-19 vaccination drive to begin from January 16 in India

The Centre said on Saturday the Covid-19 vaccination drive would begin in the country on January 16 when nearly 30 million healthcare and frontline workers will be innoculated, followed by those above 50 years of age and the under-50 population groups with co-morbidities. "The roll-out of Covid-19 vaccine will provide priority to the healthcare workers and the frontline workers who are estimated to be around 3 cr, followed by those above 50 years of age and the under-50 population groups with co-morbidities numbering around 27 cr," the Centre stated in a release.

Covid immunity could last for months: New research clarifies previous findings

A new study suggests that the body’s immune response to the novel coronavirus can last for at least eight months after the onset of symptoms from the initial infection. The duration of immunity to Covid-19 has been a subject of research through the pandemic, and studies so far have provided various results. In July last year, a study suggested that immunity might be lost in months. As The Indian Express reported back then, researchers from King’s College London drew this conclusion from a drop they observed in the antibody levels in recovered Covid-19 patients over time — from a “potent level” in 60% of study participants during the peak of infection to only 16.7% retaining that level of potency 65 days later. While that study suggested that recovered Covid-19 patients are likely to remain susceptible to re-infection, the new study suggests that nearly all Covid-19 survivors have the immune cells necessary to fight re-infection.
