A powerful radio telescope studying the Milky Way satellite galaxy has discovered thousands of previously unknown sources of radio signals.
Alexander Ginzburg, director of the Gamalei Research Center, said that next year the first phase of clinical trials of a single vaccine against several strains of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza virus may begin. Scientists from Singapore have concluded that matrix vaccines can protect against a whole group of coronaviruses. Sputnik Lite became the first internationally officially approved booster vaccine.
Experts believe that any disease, including coronavirus, is easier to prevent than to treat.
The iota variant of SARS-CoV-2 has a higher transmissivity and lethality, but the iota variant itself has been practically supplanted by other strains. The effectiveness of the Sputnik V vaccine from the delta variant is 83%. It will take from 7 to 10 years to develop collective immunity in Russia in a natural way. After a year, all inflammatory processes in the brain of those who have had COVID-19 stop and the central nervous system is fully restored.
It's no secret that cats and dogs can also be infected with SARS-CoV-2. They carry it, of course, imperceptibly, but what if one day a mutation appears that will affect pets as their owners.
The Russian Association of Allergists and Clinical Immunologists has released a document that tells how often allergic reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine occur.
Due to the increase in cases of breakthrough infections caused by the Indian strain of coronavirus, a dispute has escalated in the scientific community about the mandatory introduction of the third component of the booster vaccine. Pharmacological companies confirm the effectiveness of their drugs, but scientists are still asking not to jump to conclusions.
Preliminary results show that no serious side effects were detected.
As a rule, the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine is administered after 21 days, but there are cases when, for one reason or another, this cannot be done. How scary is it?
While the pandemic reigns on Earth, there are enough problems in space. There are problems with air leakage on the ISS again. In addition, Russian cosmonauts risk being left without spacesuits for spacewalking. The good news is the repair of the Hubble telescope, which has not worked for more than a month.
