A New COVID Remedy?

2021-11-19T23:14:52+00:00

Researchers have done studies that anti-depressant drugs may reduce your chance of death when attracting COVID by about 8%. Medical News Today states, "Evidence is growing that a common antidepressant may reduce the severity of symptoms and mortality following SARS-CoV-2 infection." It's a strange breakthrough, but antidepressants are generally pretty cheap and if it's effective, that's all that matters. MNT also states, "In an observational study, patients taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) were 8% less likely to die from COVID-19," and continue on, "Those taking fluoxetine or fluvoxamine were 26% less likely to die." Along this long road COVID has [...]

Are Masks In School Proving To Be Beneficial?

2021-10-21T23:15:49+00:00

Before this school year started, there was an intense debate between parents whether kids should be wearing masks for kids aged K-12. Some parents felt like students should be wearing masks to school because they are thinking about the virus, and want to help put an end to it. The opposite argument is that students shouldn’t be forced to wear masks for an entire 6-7 hour school day, arguing that it’s hard to breathe and that it’s a lot to ask of a child. Both sides are valid arguments, but let’s dive in to see if masks are worth it for [...]

COVID Rates On The Rise For Children

2021-10-15T22:56:21+00:00

When the vaccine came out this Spring, there was only a vaccine for Adults ages 18+. There wasn't, at the time, a vaccine for any individuals younger, which made this going back to school season somewhat of a controversy. Along with this, the issue of masks was brought up amongst parents, some being in favor of their kids wearing masks, and others against it. The argument for included reasons of the vaccine not being available to these kids, and they are still able to contract the virus. Now that school is back in session, COVID rates among kids have increased.   [...]

Depression Rates On The Rise – COVID

2021-10-13T19:21:30+00:00

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, life has been fragile, fearful, and composed of mourning for many. We are now over 700,000 deaths in America and that number is continuing to rise quickly. When vaccines were introduced, there was a brief period of time where it felt like we were heading down the path of normality returning.  Unfortunately for not only us, but the rest of the world as well, the Delta variant caught significant traction and brought us more devastation at a rapid rate.    Vaccinations were helpful for that short period of time earlier this year, but the [...]

New COVID Variant – C.1.2 Variant

2021-09-27T19:46:32+00:00

Not to a huge surprise, but to a serious moment of dread, we have now stumbled upon a new COVID variant, which officials are referring to as the C.1.2 variant. There is reason to have suspected this, due to the numerous amount of times the virus has mutated since it's conception, but it adds one more variant to worry about. The Delta variant has been devastating, and if it falls under the same pattern, there is a likely chance that it is at least slightly more aggressive. Medical News Today states, "The more viruses spread, the more likely they are to [...]

Hospitals Are Filled To The Brim

2021-09-22T23:55:28+00:00

Since the beginning of COVID, there has been devastating story, day after day, week after week, with only a relief of the depressing news for a couple of months. We are now over 650,000 deaths due to COVID in America, and the number shows no sign of slowing down. The vaccine was a major relief, and is what allowed us to begin to open fully back up again. That's when the Delta variant came about and took America and many other countries by storm and became the dominant variant in most countries in the world. Hospitals early on became extensively overwhelmed [...]

Will A Third Booster Be A Solution Against The Delta Variant?

2021-09-20T00:30:35+00:00

As of right now, COVID is at its peak in various parts of the globe. The Delta variant has been rapidly spreading because not only is it more contagious than the previous variants, it is also still transmissible to people that are vaccinated. The benefit of having the vaccine reduces your chance of having a severe case, and greatly reduces your chances you're hospitalized or die because of COVID. Researchers around the world have been scrambling to find a treatment to help slow these devastating times. We are seeing countries go back into lockdown, and in America, there are states that [...]

Anti-COVID Antibodies?

2021-09-10T19:02:22+00:00

The find of a cure of COVID has been a scramble, and it doesn't seem like we have come to a solution, but with the latest news that has been coming out, it feels like we have been taking steps in the right direction. There was news of a cholesterol lowering drug that has been put into testing, but since that release of the initial news, there hasn't been much since. Researchers have begun to develop a vaccine against the Delta variant, but nothing new has come from that in the recent past. Yesterday, Moderna announced that they are working on [...]

A New Evolution Of The COVID-19 Vaccination

2021-09-09T22:41:06+00:00

Around the world, people have been working day in and day out to try and establish a vaccine that can help take our world out of its scary current state. We had a few break throughs in America, but those were to combat the original Alpha and Beta variants. The vaccines were Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Moderna. These vaccines had fairly high success rates, until the Delta variant made an imposing entrance. The Delta variant has taken over as the dominant variant because it is more contagious than the original variants and the vaccines are not completely immune to it, [...]

An Interesting Trial Of “COVID Medications”

2021-09-03T23:27:50+00:00

Since the start of COVID-19, we have seen the worst of the worst in most of our lifetimes, there are only a few world events in the last 100 years that I think could compete for a worse extended period of time in world history. In America specifically, we have seen well over 600,000 deaths, and that number is still rising rapidly. We did achieve Joe Biden's goal of 70% vaccination rate in America, but we did not achieve by the date originally the Biden Administration was hoping for, which was the Fourth of July. Since we have hit the 70% [...]
