How a COVID-19 infection changes blood cells in the long run

Using real-time deformability cytometry, researchers at the Max-Planck-Zentrum für Physik und Medizin in Erlangen were able to show for the first time: COVID-19 significantly changes the size and stiffness of red and white blood cells—sometimes over months. These results may help to explain why some affected people continue to complain of symptoms long after [...]

Mixing Pfizer, AstraZeneca doses provides strong immune response against COVID-19: study

Mixing doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccines generate a stronger immune response than having two rounds of the AstraZeneca shot, new U.K. research suggests, though the highest antibody response was seen in people being fully vaccinated with Pfizer. The early findings, which haven't yet been peer-reviewed, were released as a paper published online by the Lancet on Monday. The [...]

Delta plus: Scientists say too early to tell risk of Covid-19 variant

Why do new variants of Covid-19 keep appearing? Laura Foster explains India has classified a new variant of the coronavirus first identified in Europe as a "variant of concern", but it's too early to tell whether it poses a significant threat.
