The best materials for blocking small particles include non-woven polypropylene, which is used to make N95s and many surgical-type masks, and the HEPA filters in planes.
The Brazilian variant caused a spike in hospitalizations in January and revealed a variant that’s more contagious and less vulnerable to some treatments.
It is important to monitor new variants because people who’ve been infected might be infected again if the virus has mutated and their immune system can’t recognize it.
Health officials around the world are raising concerns about new virus variants that are more contagious or resistant to existing vaccines.
Researchers can use this technology may eventually be able to correct lifelong genetic diseases, including progeria, in humans.
When a mutation happens in the first few weeks of embryonic development, it would be expected to be widespread both in an individual's cells and in those of their offspring.
In a weird turn of events, researchers created mutated viruses in plants instead of a virus resistant plant
This is a great blow to China's reputation & development of biomedical research: Chinese scientists.
