There is more and more news about the newly discovered treatment for the disease triggered by the novel coronavirus these days.
Thankfully, the innovating treatments and the upcoming vaccines could help humanity get back to normal life or at least to something as similar as possible to what we lived before the global disaster struck.
We reported not too long ago about suggestions that one potential treatment for the virus could be found right across the street, at the local pharmacy – this is the common sleep aid melatonin.
Also, this discovery could lead to a lower death rate among patients with Covid-19.
There’s been a lot of talk about the new viable coronavirus vaccines that are underway from more companies as well.
It’s also important to note that the FDA allowed for the use of Regeneron’s Covid-19 antibody treatment – this is a huge step that will make it more widely available to patients in need. The treatment was administered to President Donald Trump.
New tech could help people affected by neurological issues post Covid-19
According to the latest reports, people who have received from the most severe cases of the disease may face long-term health challenges.
The Mayo Clinic just reported that the aftereffects of Covid-19 include brain tissue damage “that can cause strokes, bring on seizures and increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.”
More than that, it seems that other organs can have permanent damage, and these are the heart and lungs.
“The long-term health challenges arising from sepsis and other potential complications experienced by patients recovering from the severe cases of COVID-19 are devastating, but medical professionals and researchers are diligently working to reduce these cardiovascular and neurological aftereffects,” said Hyowon (Hugh) Lee, associate professor in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering as cited by Science Blog.
The good news is that there are some new technologies that have been developed to treat the neurological problems and other damages made to organs, and they have already been published in some important journals.
