. Surgical mask best protects against coronavirus infection. To such conclusion the group of scientists from the University of New South Wales in Australia, reports ScienceDaily.
The researchers compared the effectiveness of three types of masks: single layer, double layer and three-layer surgical PPE.
. A group of scientists from the Australian Monash University has submitted a drug that prevents heart attack. The corresponding article was published in the online edition of Science Translational Medicine.
Modeling a heart attack in laboratory mice, the researchers found that the formation of platelets affects one of the enzymes in the body — phosphoinositide-3-kinase class II. After artificial removal of the clots ceased to be formed.
A group of Spanish scientists have discovered a new symptom of the infection of coronavirus, according to a paper published in the journal JAMA Dermatology.
Almost thirty percent of the monitored patients, experts noticed enanthema in the oral cavity — severe rash on the mucous membrane.
. A group of scientists from Indiana University have discovered how the parasite Toxoplasma gondii infects human cells. The results of the study are published in the journal mBio.
The article notes that the Toxoplasma infected more than half of humanity. Usually this is due to consumption of contaminated water or food. Moreover, the penetration of the parasite in brain tissue can lead to severe symptoms.
Ill COVID-19 may have problems with immunity, is reported in the Preprint of the research scientists from the Institute of Virology of Wuhan on the portal medrxiv.
Lymphopenia, that is, temporary or persistent decrease of lymphocytes in the blood, is a typical symptom in patients with COVID-19.
The coronavirus can start to live permanently in the human body, such as herpes virus, said academician of RAS, honored scientist of Russia, Professor of Moscow state University. Lomonosov Sergey Kolesnikov in an interview with "Parlamentskaya Gazeta".

Coronavirus will become even more contagious than, said the doctor of medical Sciences, Professor Anatoly Altstein in an interview with NSN.
According to him, the probability of a second wave COVID-19 in Russia 100 per cent, because the coronavirus "is generally not going anywhere".
Genetic data Russians will be stored in "anonymised", said the President of the Kurchatov Institute Mikhail Kovalchuk in an interview with "Parlamentskaya Gazeta".

American cruiser and reconnaissance aircraft tried to follow the dip of Russian unmanned "Vityaz" in the Mariana trench, told the TV channel "Star" representatives of the Central design Bureau for marine engineering "Rubin" and the Foundation for advanced studies.
As said the chief specialist of the Bureau of the novel Sokolov, the ship appeared some time after the machine is started to deploy in position.

Scientists can account for the mechanism of mutations COVID-19, in particular, threatens the emergence of more aggressive forms, creating a vaccine, said academician of RAS, Director of the Center for immunology and molecular Biomedicine, Moscow state University Professor Mikhail Paltsev in an interview with "Parlamentskaya Gazeta".
According to him, recent research on COVID-19 indicate that the mutation occurs in a protein receptor of the virus, not its RNA. This is a common phenomenon, said the academician, and may also be considered when creating a vaccine.
