Researchers in Ireland say they have developed a system that can predict who will suffer from severe COVID-19. According to UPI, the team of researchers revealed their study and findings on Wednesday. The scoring system, called the Dublin-Boston score, is designed to enable clinicians to make more informed decisions. Physicians will be able to identify patients who may benefit from steroids and other treatments after being infected.
UPI reports people sickened with COVID-19 produce "high-quality" antibodies. The antibodies work against the virus five to seven months after they become infected. The findings suggest those infected with COVID-19 potentially can develop a long-lasting immunity to it. Antibodies are proteins produced by the human immune system to help the body fight off viruses. Many concerns have been expressed about immunity against COVID-19 not lasting.
A new, rapid, bedside test for COVID-19 delivers results in less than two hours. UPI reports a new study says such a quick turnaround means appropriate treatment can start earlier for those already hospitalized because of their symptoms. The standard COVID-19 test swabs the patient's nose and uses polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, technology. It typically takes over 20 hours to produce results.
New research from Harvard and Calgary Universities have shed new light on who is more or less likely to observe COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. UPI reports more North American and European men, and young adults of both sexes, fail to adhere to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines than older adults. The data showed 59% of male respondents said they adhered to local social distancing guidelines, while 69% of female respondents reported doing so.
