When you think different, it gives you several opportunities and then from the multiple options available, you can ask your heart to choose one of them. Thinking positive was a message given by Lord Buddha and thinking different by Adi Shankaracharya. The candle light march, which was held to fight for justice in the Jessica Lal murder case, has been picked up by most protest campaigns because it was positive and different. .... read more

Each of our companies continue their COVID-19 vaccines development activities as planned,” said the joint statement.

Study: Individuals recovering from Covid-19 helpful for Sustained cellular immune dysregulation

, January 3 (ANI): A recent study has determined that Covid-19 patients might be helpful for clinicians to better understand how the unknown SARS-CoV-2 virus acts. According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, many infected patients remain asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. Others, especially those with comorbidities, can develop severe clinical disease with atypical pneumonia and multiple system organ failures. Since the first cases were reported in December 2019, the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19 has surged into a pandemic, with cases and deaths still mounting. Ongoing observational clinical research has become a priority to better understand how this previously unknown virus acts, and findings from this research can better inform treatment and vaccine design.
