According to the study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, close to 17 per cent of patients considered fully recovered from Covid-19 tested positive for the virus in follow-up screening.
Patients who continued to have respiratory symptoms, especially sore throat and rhinitis, were more likely to have a new positive test result.
This suggests the persistence of these two symptoms should not be underestimated and should be adequately assessed in all patients considered recovered from Covid-19.Read More..
In the process, they identified UBA1, which is a gene linked to an inflammatory disorder called vacuoles, E1 enzyme, X-linked, autoinflammatory, and somatic syndrome (VEXAS).

From 1 April to 1 October 2019, the upgraded LIGO and Virgo interferometers detected 39 new gravitational wave events: the shockwaves rippling out across spacetime from massive collisions between neutron stars or black holes.
In total, the Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog 2 (GWTC-2) now boasts 50 such events.
This has given us the most complete census of black holes in our toolkit, representing a range of black holes that not only had never been detected before, but can reveal previously unplumbed depths of the evolution and afterlives of binary stars.Read More..
The requirement of replacing the engines became apparent after an investigation into the aberrant behaviour of the Falcon 9 rocket observed during a recent non-NASA mission launch attempt, Space.com reported on Wednesday.
