DETECTING DOGS They train to identify the presence of the coronavirus in patients with covid-19.
In France, about 20 police and fire detection dogs are being trained to identify the presence of the new coronavirus in the sweat of covid-19 patients. The first results were surprising.
POSSIBLE VACCINE? Monkeys infected with coronavirus become immune after cure, research from the US indicates.
There are still few scientific results that confirm the thesis that the antibodies produced in response to the new coronavirus provide protection after the disease, however, two studies conducted in monkeys and published this Wednesday (05/20/20) in the United States, they present evidence that they were immune to the disease. This does not prove that humans develop this immunity, or how long it can last, but it helps to create optimism and points out that future Covid-19 vaccines may work.
Stay well, and stay home!
See you next week.
