    BackgroundThe scientists aimed to describe the prevalence and characteristics of anosmia in patients with confirmed COVID-19, as it has been rarely described in medical literature. MethodsThe scientists conducted a retrospective observational study in which they included COVID-19 patients with anosmia. They used SARS-CoV-2 real time PCR on respiratory samples to confirm the cases. The scientists called non-hospitalised and discharged patients seven days (± 7 days) after the first symptoms and ev...

    Introduction The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak originated in the city of Wuhan at the end of 2019, China, and is now a global pandemic. The scientists explain that the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) is the number of deaths as a proportion of all persons infected with the SARS-CoV-2 novel coronavirus. Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is the proportion among confirmed cases. According to the scientists, the IFR can be lower than the CFR if many SARS-CoV-2 infections with mild or no symptoms ...

    Letter to the EditorCOVID-19 is a new infectious disease, which was declared as a pandemic, causing a global public health emergency. This is related with the SARS-CoV-2's high contagiosity and quick transmission.Previous studies mainly focused on epidemiological characteristics and prevention of COVID-19, while few studies looked on the duration of SARS-CoV-2 carrying in COVID-19 patients. According to the sceintists, learning more about the SARS-CoV-2 carrying duration, the time of infection, ...

    IntroductionThe outbreak of the epidemic of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) brought a serious threat to life and health with the number of older patients infected with COVID-19 increasing in the world. Older people are more susceptible to many diseases than younger, including COVID-19 infection, which could dramatically increased the healthcare burden in an aging population. MethodsThe scientists collected the data on the 60 older patients transferred by Beijing Emergency Medical Service (from...

    Dear Editor,In February 25th 2020, the first SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed in Barcelona, Spain. Since then, Spain has become the second country worldwide in cases (after the USA) and deaths (after Italy). Madrid and Catalonia where hit the hardest.Many factors can affect coronaviruses' transmission, including the weather, so understanding its effect on COVID-19's transmission is essential, but evidence is lacking. An association with temperature is suggested by a study of the four major Chinese citie...

    AbstractGoal is to assess the risk of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) admission for patients with diabetes and COVID-19. After analyzing existing datasets, we found that diabetic patients with COVID-19 are at higher risk of ICU admission, and are more likely to die. IntroductionIt's well known that diabetes patients are at higher risk of infection from various diseases, including COVID-19. Recent investigations have found that diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common comorbidities. Separate st...

    Abstract:This paper examined current population-based mortality rates, compared them with the expected rate of mortality based on data for the past 3 years, and compared any excess in deaths with the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19. Data came from government sources in England, Wales, the Netherlands, Scotland, and New York State. We found there was an increase in observed, compared with expected, mortality in Scotland (+27%), England and Wales (+35%), the Netherlands (+60%) and New Y...

    Abstract     The physiological and behavioral effect of micro/nano plastics on marine life has been documented. However, there is a severe lack of studies on the effect of micro/nano plastic on mammals. Recent studies show the toxicological effects as a result of micro/nano plastic ingestion in mammals. Future studies should address the effects of short and long term exposure of microplastic to animal models. The accumulation of micro/nano plastic occurs in mammals, but the long term consequence...

    Abstract     This study outlines a process that is both electrical and chemical in nature. It is therefore referred to as electrochemical. This study looks at the conversion of carbon dioxide CO2 directly into ethanol by using a new carbon-copper catalyst.  This electrochemical process simultaneously lowers atmospheric CO2 and provides an avenue to store renewable energy in the form of ethanol. The carbon-cooper catalyst had a high Faraday efficiency (FE), which is a measure of how easily an ele...

    Abstract Microplastics (MP) have become a global threat recently. Their toxicity is largely unknown. This study looks at the toxic effects of 0.5 μm, 4 μm, and 10 μm polystyrene microplastic (PS-MPs) on the male reproductive system of adult mice. 4 and 10 μm MP accumulated in the testis of the mice, while all three sizes were able to enter into three different kinds of testicular cells. The testosterone levels and sperm quality both declined after exposure for 28 days. Cellular abnormalities wer...
