Scientists still predict a safe and effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 could take at least 12-18 months to develop, according to a new report from a section of the media.
As India ranked 10th in the global infection list, India's top medical body has said the human trials of COVID-19 vaccine may begin at least in six months.
Children under the age of two shouldn't wear masks because they can make breathing difficult and increase the risk of choking, a Japan medical group said.
A drug being tested by scientists at China's prestigious Peking University could not only shorten the recovery time for those infected, but even offer short-term immunity from the virus, researchers say.
Researchers have found that improved everyday hygiene practices, such as hand-washing, reduces the risk of common infections by up to 50 percent, thus reducing the need for antibiotics by up to 30 percent.
The study examined the characteristics and symptoms of 103 patients who were diagnosed with COVID-19 over a six-week period at Kantonsspital Aarau in Aarau, Switzerland.
Gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, coupled with a fever or history of exposure to COVID-19, could indicate coronavirus infection in children, according to a new study.
Children have largely been spared the worst of COVID-19, but there may be a rare complication -- an inflammatory syndrome that one doctor described as causing patients to feel like "every blood vessel in the body is on fire."
Contrary to some reports, researchers now claim that the new coronavirus doesn't spread via tears and it is unlikely that infected patients are shedding the virus through eye fluid.
