Air pollution may hinder Indias fight against Covid-19, say scientists

NEW DELHI: The causal link between air pollution and Covid-19 cases is yet to be established conclusively but long-term exposure will certainly make people more vulnerable to lung infections, warn scientists as the skies over large parts of north India, including Delhi, turn smoky and the air quality deteriorates rapidly.

Aspirin Improving Outcome in Hospitalized COVID 19 Patients - A New Study

Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is associated with hypercoagulability and increased thrombotic risk in critically ill patients1. Reduced mechanical ventilation, ICU admission, and in-hospital mortality in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 have been reported to be linked with a new study published in the Anaesthesia & Analgesia Journal2. In a retrospective, observational cohort study including adult COVID-19 patients admitted to different hospitals in the United States during March 2020 and July 2020, 76.3% did not receive Aspirin, 23.7% received Aspirin within a day of admission or seven days before admission. The findings reported that Aspirin use had a crude association with less mechanical ventilation (35.7% Aspirin vs 48.4% non-Aspirin, p=0.03) and ICU admission (38.8% Aspirin vs 51.0% non-Aspirin, p=0.04); ....read more

Vaccine verdict due by early December: Anthony Fauci

expresspharma

US infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said it would be clear whether a COVID-19 vaccine was safe and effective by early December, but that more widespread vaccination would not be likely until later in 2021. “We will know whether a vaccine is safe and effective by the end of November, the beginning of December,” Fauci told the BBC. He said, “When you talk about vaccinating a substantial proportion of the population, so that you can have a significant impact on the dynamics of the outbreak, that very likely will not be until the second or third quarter of the year.”

Indian hospitals are large and multifaceted entities with lots of challenges

afternoonvoice

edical practices are very much efficient, recorded and always under control. If there is any negligence then the guilty is always brought to justice, be it some doctors, nurses or para-medical support. During COVID-19, some political leaders of the opposition party were vigilante for 24/7 because they had to demine and destabilise the ruling government. There were many stories in the media circulated by one particular leader about the negligence of doctors and hospitals. The facts are that the media was prompt enough in showing these reports and above all the social media was hell-bent on attacking such hospitals. Doctors anywhere even the remotest part of India is probably the best as compared to anywhere else. But the rising number in COVID-19 cases had multiple challenges. Most of the time negligence is an assumption, dealing with the lives of human beings are not a cake walk, it is a huge responsibility and most of the doctors of Mumbai have handled it extremely well. Saying this I do not deny that there might be a few cases of negligence and that it needs an investigation procedure like they have in other countries. The judiciary is not entirely equipped to make a ruling on medical scenarios.

Vaccine storage issues could leave 3B people without access

Gampela (Burkina Faso), Oct 25 (AP) The chain breaks here, in a tiny medical clinic in Burkina Faso that went nearly a year without a working refrigerator. From factory to syringe, the worlds most promising coronavirus vaccine candidates need non-stop sterile refrigeration to stay potent and safe. But despite enormous strides in equipping developing countries to maintain the vaccine “cold chain,” nearly 3 billion of the worlds 7.8 billion people live where temperature-controlled storage is insufficient for an immunization campaign to bring COVID-19 under control.
