    1 month ago - By PopSugar

    We've learned a lot about the symptoms of COVID-19 over the last few months. One of the more surprising discoveries: despite being classified as a respiratory illness by the CDC, COVID-19 doesn't always limit itself to a sore throat or a cough. Among other symptoms (including fever, fatigue, and loss of taste or smell), COVID-19 can also cause digestive distress, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

  • Evaporation critical to coronavirus transmission as weather changes

    1 month ago - By ScienceDaily

    As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, it is increasingly urgent to understand how climate impacts the spread of the coronavirus, particularly as winter virus infections are more common and the northern hemisphere will soon see cooler temperatures. Researchers studied the effects of relative humidity, environmental temperature, and wind speed on the respiratory cloud and virus viability. They found a critical factor for the transmission of the infectious particles is evaporation.

  • Tragic Math: The U.S. Exceeds 200,000 COVID-19 Deaths

    1 month ago - By Time

    Body count has long been the yardstick by which we measure calamity. There were the 58,000 U.S. lives lives lost in the Vietnam war; the 1,496 souls who perished on the Titanic. In the hours after the September 11 attacks, when the death toll was not known, then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani famously said, “The number of casualties will be more than any of us can bear, ultimately.”
    We are, once again, trying to bear the unbearable as the U.S. today surpassed 200,000 deaths caused in the still-rampaging COVID-19 pandemic. We remain, as we have long been, the world's hardest-hit country, with...
