Coronavirus continues to be a global pandemic. Currently, there are over 6.2 million cases and over 370,000 deaths around the world. At this time, according to the released data by the Russian government over 400,000 people are infected with COVID-19. Russia approved a new drug to treat coronavirus.
Coronavirus is still a main topic on the news and social media around the world. Currently there are over 3.1 million of the infected and over 217,000 deaths around the globe. As a result of the latest COVID-19 pandemic scientists decided to use new virus classifications. The new system will have better spread and will essentially allow them to track the mutations of the viruses. This will allow more precise research.
US scientists from Columbia University used mathematical modeling based on data from reported cases of COVID-19 in China. They also collected the data pertaining to the people’s movement from 375 Chinese cities. Scientists analyzed the data proving that 86% of cases in China were undocumented prior to introduction of restrictions on the the entry into and exit from the Wuhan region, which contributed to the rapid global spread of the coronavirus.
Russian scientists in collaboration with Belarusian researchers proposed a new class of drugs that will aid in the treatment of cancerous tumors. The drugs proposed are based on using palladium and platinum. The class of drugs based on platinum derivatives is now considered one of the most effective in the fight against tumors.
The most common of them in clinical practice is cisplatin that contains a heavy metal complex with a central atom of platinum surrounded by two chloride atoms and two ammonia molecules in the cis position. It is a white powder with the molecular formula PtCl2H6N2, and a molecular weight of 300.05. However, its poor water solubility and high toxicity led to the development of new anticancer drugs based on platinum group metal compounds.
St. Petersburg Research Institute of Vaccines and Sera FMBA of Russia is working on creating a vaccine for coronavirus. The vaccine is planned for the fall of 2020. Additionally, the clinical trials will begin in the winter months including preclinical tests on mice. It will take several more months. Thus far, the vaccine is supposed to be readily available in the Summer 2021.
Currently, the world is watching the news about the new virus from China, According to the World Health Organization it is labeled 2019-nCoV. it is a viral respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus that has not been found in people before. 2019-nCoV is not the same coronavirus that caused Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003.
Britain’s Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matthew Hancock announced the government’s desire to start collecting DNA of every newborn child. Hence, the privacy of UK citizens will no longer exist. Your DNA is a treasure trove of personal information, including your physical characteristics like eye color, paternity and health. The UK has been a pioneer in privacy intrusion. It is one thing to use DNA to solve heinous crimes and protect society, yet another to use it for the government’s gain and control.
Cell culture dishes, commonly referred to as petri dishes, are shallow cylindrical glass dishes or lidded plastic dishes used by biologists and other laboratory personnel to study and culture cells. Petri dishes are incorporated as temporary receptacles used for studying samples and specimen under low powered microscopes.
