Scientists studied data from more than 1,600 Covid-19 patients in the US and found that the disease has long-term effects. Researchers also included researchers from the University of Michigan, USA. They analyzed data from 1,648 Covid-19 patients admitted to 38 hospitals in Michigan and found that 398 of them died during hospitalization and 1,250 survived.
The researchers interviewed 488 patients approximately 60 days after their hospitalization. More than 39 percent of these patients said that they had not yet started normal activities even two months after being discharged from the hospital. The study report is published in the journal ‘Annals of Internal Medicine.
On the other hand, researchers have developed a reusable mask of cotton cloth that can kill 99.99 percent of bacteria and viruses if exposed to sunlight for one hour. Masks made from different fabrics prevent droplets when coughing and sneezing, which may help reduce the spread of other diseases, including Covid-19.
According to a study published in the journal “ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces”, bacteria and viruses on masks can be contagious. Researchers at the University of California in the US have developed a new cotton fabric that releases “reactive oxygen spikes” (ROS) when exposed to sunlight that kills microorganisms on the fabric and makes it washable, reused. Qualified and safe to apply.
